On this episode of ID the Future, learn about some of scientists’ latest attempts to copy sophisticated designs found in the natural world. This emerging science of imitating nature, known as biomimetics, has attracted extensive research and led to new technologies. As uniform experience has shown, such good design comes not from blind processes, but from a good mind.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Paul Nelson joins Michael Medved to discuss genomics guru Dr. Craig Venter’s claim to have created synthetic life in the lab. Can life be reduced to mere physics and chemistry, as Dr. Venter asserts? Or is there more to life that requires a creative mind?
On this episode of ID the Future, hear about the amazing design of one of Halloween’s creepiest creatures – the spider. Listen in to learn how the jumping spider’s eight eyes demonstrate division of labor, and how the spider’s silk is being used for eco-friendly fiber optics and biodegradable “plastics.”
On this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Thomas Woodward, founder and director of the C.S. Lewis Society, about his latest book, The Mysterious Epigenome: What Lies Beyond DNA, and the new discoveries in biology that affect our understanding of the genome. Woodward explains how epigenetics is bringing about a revolution in biology.
On this episode of ID the Future, listen in on this special edition of the Science and Culture Update, recorded in front of a live audience in the Medved Show studio. Michael Medved is joined by Darwin’s Doubt author Stephen Meyer and Evolution News & Views editor David Klinghoffer for a discussion about the misuse of science to close minds, rather than open them, in ongoing debates on controversial topics such as evolution and climate change.
On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer and Christopher Booker, a columnist for the London Telegraph and author of The Real Global Warming Disaster, talk climate change skepticism and scientific consensus with Michael Medved. How do scientific issues get so controversial, and why does the majority opinion of the general public go against the so-called "scientific consensus," in regards to evolution as well as climate change? Tune in as they discuss.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses recent incidents that reveal a disturbing trend: Darwin activists are using a "heckler's veto" to intimidate academic institutions into shutting down scientific inquiry over life's origins. Listen in as Luskin demonstrates how the heckler's veto has become the latest tool for suppression of ID-friendly viewpoints.
On this episode of ID the Future, Michael Medved, DI Senior Fellow Wesley J. Smith, and CSC Associate Director John West examine the question: Are humans unique, or are we, as many argue, just another animal? Tune in to this enlightening conversation about human exceptionalism and dignity -- the subject of the upcoming documentary The War on Humans.
