On this episode of ID the Future, Brian Miller discusses the thermodynamics of the origin of life. Listen in to learn more about equilibrium, self-organization, and how the cell defies natural tendencies towards high entropy and low energy. Materialistic explanations seem to hit a wall when examining the physics of abiogenesis.
On this episode of ID the Future, Tod Butterfield interviews Steve Laufmann on Dr. Howard Glicksman’s 81-part EN series, The Designed Body. Listen in as Laufmann reflects on coherence in the body, specifically displayed in fetal development, as well as the limits of natural selection.
Why is the origin of life so important when it comes to the debate between the new atheists and those who see evidence for intelligent design? On this episode of ID the Future, Discovery Institute fellow Paul Nelson interviews Rabbi Moshe Averick on the clues he gleaned from the new atheists themselves.
On this episode of ID the Future, listen in as Ray Bohlin discusses Texas’ streamlined biology standards, and Jonathan Wells identifies how teachers could find Zombie Science helpful for their personal use as they present information on the fossil record and DNA.

On this episode of ID the Future, Tod Butterfield interviews Steve Laufmann on Dr. Howard Glicksman’s 81-part EN series, The Designed Body. Listen in as Laufman reflects on the body’s fight against equilibrium, the Goldilocks principal, and more!
On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid reviews a recent incident at Middlebury College, where disagreement with a speaker’s point of view led to chaos and even violence. Listen in as McDiarmid reads the response from two ideological opposites, Cornel West and Robert George: a public statement endorsing academic freedom on university campuses. This statement has been widely circulated and it was signed by our own Bruce Chapman, Steve Buri and John West.
This episode of ID the Future features a follow-up interview with Winston Ewert, Ph.D., co-author with William Dembski and Robert J. Marks II of the new book, An Introduction to Evolutionary Informatics. Ewert and host Ray Bohlin dive deeper into the sometimes surreal world of computer evolution simulations, taking a closer look at attempts to simulate one of biology’s great mysteries, the Cambrian Explosion, where numerous new animal body plans abruptly appear in the fossil record.
On this episode of ID the Future, J. Warner Wallace discusses with host Brian Miller the role that Wallace’s work as a cold-case detective played in him first analyzing the evidence for intelligent design, and how that evidence played a key role in his journey. Wallace says he was attracted to the story and person of Jesus but confronted the question of whether science and reason allowed for anything inconsistent with philosophical materialism. Listen in as Miller and Wallace examine the natural world as one would a crime scene.
On this episode of ID the Future, listen in as Wesley J. Smith, Jay W. Richards, Marlo Lewis, and Stephen C. Meyer discuss consensus science at a Washington D.C. event entitled, "March for Science or March for Scientism? Understanding the Real Threats to Science in America." How can government encourage healthy skepticism yet move forward with policy solutions that involve science? Tune in to hear the discussion.
What is a rational response when you're confronted with nonsense of a high order? On this episode of ID the Future, CSC fellow Paul Nelson interviews Rabbi Moshe Averick, who explains the rational course for countering the new atheists.
Rabbi Averick is the author of the book, Nonsense of a High Order: The Confused and Illusory World of the Atheist. He ran educational programs at UCLA and Northridge University in Los Angeles, and then became one of the founding faculty members of Aish Toronto and later at the Shaalvim Rabbinical Seminary in Israel.
