On this episode of ID the Future, Tod Butterfield interviews CSC Program Officer in Education and Public Policy Sarah Chaffee. Listen in as Chaffee shares about the TEKS streamlining process and the push to gut good standards of critical analysis of evolution. The Board votes this week (meeting is April 18-21)! If you're from Texas, learn how you can help.
On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Director of Communications Rob Crowther interviews CSC Senior Fellow Jay Richards on the upcoming March for Science and the CSC’s partnership with Stream.org to provide critical analysis of the April 22 event. Listen in as Richards discusses the controversy over the politics of the march, and why arguments from consensus should set off your baloney detector.
On this episode of ID the Future, Discovery Institute Fellow Ray Bohlin interviews climate statistician William (Matt) Briggs about the upcoming March for Science. Listen in as they discuss the reaction to the Trump administration’s stance on global warming, the March diversity statement, and other ways this event is focused on politics – not science.
On this episode of ID the Future, Brian Miller, CSC Research Coordinator, interviews Paul Nelson, CSC Senior Fellow and philosopher of science, on universal common ancestry. Listen in as Nelson describes how common descent predicts one – and only one – genetic code. Yet, this is not what we find.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin sits down with Senior Fellow Dr. Michael Denton for a discussion of paradigm shifts in science. Dr. Denton reflects on paradigm shifts that he’s witnessed in his lifetime and how his own thinking has changed over the years, and also looks at how these shifts challenge Darwinian evolution in new ways.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Wade Warren gives a deeper look at the Louisiana science standards review, where he served as a member of the review committee. Discussing his participation throughout the process and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education’s amendment to the standards at their March meeting, Warren highlights the importance of examining evidence for and against evolution.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Brian Miller examines evolutionary explanations for the development of the eye. What is needed to build a complex eye? And how long would it take to get the necessary coordinated mutations? Miller argues the eye presents multiple insurmountable problems for evolution.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews CSC senior fellow Dr. Mike Keas, author and expert on science pedagogy. Dr. Keas discusses True U, a worldview curriculum aimed at high school and college students. Dr. Keas contributes to the teaching resources at TrueU.org. Listen in as they talk about the impact of the New Atheists and how scientifically-based arguments such as intelligent design have religious implications.
True U is an extraordinary resource to help students understand what they think about the world and the big questions of life. For more information, visit the website at www.TrueU.org.
On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Research Coordinator Dr. Brian Miller discusses micro and macro evolution in terms of fitness terrains. Can we compare design principles in human engineering to life? Listen in as Miller shares how the process of optimization unravels the explanatory power of neo-Darwinism.
On this episode of ID the Future, learn about new and exciting uses for DNA in information storage, electrical engineering, and more. Did you know that all the world’s data could, theoretically, be stored in DNA that would fit in one room (or even smaller)?
