On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Senior Fellow Dr. David Berlinski talks about his views on the debate over Darwinian evolution and intelligent design with Research Coordinator Casey Luskin. Berlinski discusses the “almost reflexive dogmatic reaction" of the Darwin community to Stephen Meyer’s argument for intelligent design in Darwin’s Doubt, and explains why cladistic analysis doesn’t solve the Cambrian mystery.

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. David Berlinski and Casey Luskin continue their talk on some of the big topics that Berliski explores in his book The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions. Listen in as they discuss theistic and materialistic arguments about cosmic fine-tuning, Richard Dawkin’s conclusions about the improbability of God, and whether humans are just another type of ape.

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Stephen Meyer and Eric Metaxas continue their conversation on Dr. Meyer’s New York Times bestseller Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design. Tune in as Dr. Meyer explains the Cambrian Explosion, discussing how it has become an even more acute problem for evolutionary theory since Darwin’s day, and examines the effects of a materialistic bias on the scientific process.

On this episode of ID the Future, hear about a recent study from scientists at Yale that found that "human brain development is a symphony in three movements." The human brain develops through distinct patterns in gene activity at different stages in the life span, which these researchers have likened to the choreography of an orchestra or ballet.

On this episode of ID the Future, David Klinghoffer reports on our recent special live edition of the Michael Medved Show’s Science and Culture Update, broadcast live from the Discovery Institute office in Seattle. The focus of the hour was the persecution of scientists and scholars that challenge Darwinian evolution, with a discussion featuring Dr. Richard Sternberg, Dr. Doug Axe, and Dr. Stephen Meyer.

This episode of ID the Future features part of a lecture given by Biologic Institute scientist Doug Axe on his research on the molecule lignin. Lignin provides a paradoxical case for the Darwinian method of evolution, but fits perfectly into a design oriented scientific paradigm. Thirty percent of non-fossil organic carbon on the planet is lignin, so in a Darwinian world, something should have developed the ability to consume lignin--but it hasn't. Lignin binds together and protects plant cellulose, which is vital to all types of large plant life; "The peculiar properties of lignin therefore make perfect sense when seen as part of a coherent design for the entire ecosystem of our planet."
