On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin finishes his interview with Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig, an expert in plant breeding formerly affiliated with the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Germany. Dr. Lönnig discusses how Darwinian evolutionary biology held back the acceptance of the laws of inheritance, discovered by the famous monk Gregor Mendel.
Does a commitment to science mean the death of God? On this episode of ID the Future, hear from bestselling author Eric Metaxas about his new book "Miracles: What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life." Metaxas discusses the scientific evidence that points towards, rather than away from, a creator, and addresses the straw man critiques of his popular WSJ article "Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God."
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues talking with geneticist Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig about Gregor Mendel's laws of inheritance and how they opposed the thinking of Darwin. Lönnig explains how Darwinian evolution hindered the acceptance of Mendel's genetic laws, and how the laws still came to be accepted.
On this episode of ID the Future, geneticist Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig talks with CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin about Gregor Mendel's laws of inheritance and how they opposed the thinking of Darwin. Listen in as Dr. Lönnig explains Mendel's laws and why they're still relevant for biology, and particularly genetics.
Which requires more faith? A belief in multiple universes or a belief in the intelligent design of our universe? On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze explores the ideas found in a Harper’s Magazine article by MIT physicist and author Alan Lightman. Some physicists attempt to side-step the intelligent design implications of our finely-tuned universe by suggesting that ours is merely one of countless universes, each with its own laws and constants.
Lightman: “If the multiverse idea is correct, then the historic mission of physics to explain all the properties of our universe…is futile, a beautiful philosophical dream that simply isn’t true.”
Tune in as Boze explains why it takes more faith NOT to believe in intelligent design!
On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin discusses media coverage of the 2012 Sutter’s Mill meteorite that falsely reports it as containing “seeds of early life” which could have helped generate “[t]he primordial soup of the early Earth.” Tune in as Luskin reveals the weak science — and significant political motives — behind these claims, which one organic chemist describes as “at best misleading, at worst . . . down-right fraudulent.”
On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze talks with Casey Luskin about the Precambrian fossil Vernanimalcula, which was thought to be the proof that Darwinists needed to refute the idea of the Cambrian explosion–the idea that life exploded in complexity during a specific period of time. Vernanimalcula was thought to be the Precambrian ancestor of all bilaterian animals, dating back to tens of millions of years prior to the Cambrian explosion. However, a new article published in Evolution & Development has concluded that “There is no evidential basis for interpreting Vernanimalcula as an animal, let alone a bilaterian.”
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues his conversation with Dr. Michael Denton. Dr. Denton elaborates on the concept of bottom-up, versus top-down, causation, and which is the better explanation for the world we live in.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey 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.
