On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer debates Michael Shermer, founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, on the question: Should scientists be skeptical about Darwinian evolution? The debate extends into the topics of whether we should allow criticism of evolution in the classroom; the extinction of Neanderthals, and their differences from humans; and the controversy over global warming.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear a discussion about a video recently released by Discovery Institute--The Workhouse of the Cell: Kinesin--that reveals the awe-inspiring inner workings of the cell. Kinesins are motorized transport machines that move cellular materials to their correct locations in the cell so they can perform their functions. Kinesins have two feet, or "globular heads," that literally walk, one foot over another. Known as the "workhorses of the cell," kinesins can carry cargo many times their own size. Watch the video at YouTube.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Dominic Halsmer, Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at Oral Roberts University, shares how he became fascinated by science and engineering. Great pedagogy involves making education fun, a principle he learned at a young age. Listen to his stories of scientific experiments (and mishaps) in his family and how he came to understand intelligent design as a scientific enterprise.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin sits down with Dr. Michael Behe to talk about a recent study that strongly confirms that severe problems face even relatively minor Darwinian evolution of proteins. Listen in as Dr. Behe discusses how just this one detail of life is beyond the abilities of Darwinian evolution, in ways that even skeptics of the theory didn't consider potentially problematic.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues his review of the TV series Cosmos. Listen in as Luskin discusses how Cosmos approaches the topic of evolution, and how the show, while admitting the past mistakes of science, ignores the controversies and debates of the day.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear an interview between Tom Woodward and Stephen Meyer that originally took place on the radio show The Universe Next Door. Dr. Meyer discusses the recently discovered Marble Canyon fossil quarry, why it's such a significant find, and how it further exacerbates the mystery of the Cambrian explosion
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with Professor Cornelius Hunter about his new program Darwin Scholars, an online education program where people can learn about evolution. Hear Prof. Hunter discuss the program, the courses offered, and why he was inspired to start it.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Cecil Phillips, who tells the story of how he was expelled from Americans United for Separation of Church and State because he was a scientific skeptic of Darwinian evolution. Listen in as they discuss how the Darwin lobby seeks to marginalize Darwin skeptics by branding them with inaccurate labels and shutting down free speech.
