On this episode of ID the Future, Sarah Chaffee interviews Casey Luskin, Research Coordinator at the Center for Science and Culture and contributor to the newly-released Debating Darwin’s Doubt. Listen in as Casey Luskin responds to a common criticism of the book Darwin's Doubt related to its stated length of the Cambrian Explosion, and also looks at small shelly fossils and what they can lend to our understanding of the Cambrian Explosion.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. David Berlinski continues to discuss the origin and nature of mathematics with CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin. Is math something waiting to be discovered, or is it a construct of the human mind? Listen in as Dr. Berlinski examines the mystery of mathematics, and reflects on the blurry distinction between math that is “discovered” and math that is “created.”
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. David Berlinski talks about the nature of numbers and mathematics. What exactly is a number, and does mathematics exist beyond the human mind? Dr. Berlinski and Casey Luskin discuss how what we know about math fits in with modern science.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Lad Allen, director of Illustra Media's newest film, Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth. Allen gives a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the documentary, including filming footage of dolphins and whales off the California coast. On August 7, Discovery Institute will host the northwest film premiere of Living Waters at McCaw Hall in Seattle. For more information and to register, visit our event page.
In this episode of ID the Future, hear about octopus hatchlings’ distributed intelligence and survival instincts, as highlighted in Dr. Geoffrey Simmons’ book, Billions of Missing Links. Listen in to learn about how baby sea turtles use an imprinted magnetic map to navigate across the ocean. Illustra Media’s newest documentary, Living Waters, explores sea creatures, such as sea turtles, whose complexity points to intelligent design.

In this episode of ID The Future, Andrew McDiarmid catches up with Dr. Stephen Meyer to clarify two important points raised during his recent discussion with Alex Berezow of Real Clear Science on the Michael Medved Show. Berezow uses developmental hox genes and the research of Richard Lenski as examples of the creative power of the mutation/selection Darwinian mechanism. Here, Meyer points out that although hox genes can produce changes in an organism during development, the changes are usually deleterious and are expressed after body plan formation has already been established. Meyer also clarifies the results of Richard Lenski’s E. coli long-term evolution experiment, showing that even the modest change in function reported by the experiment does not diminish the problem of the origin of information as detailed in Dr. Meyer’s book Darwin’s Doubt.
