Intelligent Design as a Stimulant to Scientific Research

On this episode of ID The Future we hear again from Joey Campana, founder of ResearchID.org, as he responds to the claim that intelligent design is a "science stopper." With example after example, Campana shows how ID stimulates further scientific research, opening up new areas for eager scientists to explore, unencumbered by the restraints of Darwinian fundamentalism. Campana cites the current research as proof that intelligent design is anything but a hazard to science.

Michael Behe on Stereotypes and Acceptance of ID and the Big Bang

On this episode of ID The Future we present a short clip of senior fellow Dr. Michael Behe at the 2006 Intelligent Design Under Fire conference where he talks about the acceptance of intelligent design based on misinformation and stereotypes as promoted by the media. He contrasts the current status of intelligent design with that of Big Bang theory in the beginning of the 20th century, when many scientists refused to accept Big Bang theory because they didn't like the philosophical implications.

Flock of Dodos Filmmaker Admits Film is Wrong

On this episode of ID The Future we expose just one of the many falsehoods in Flock of Dodos, and report a grudging admission from the filmmaker that his film is wrong.

In the film, storyteller Randy Olson tries his best to discredit intelligent design, but he only ends up discrediting himself by showing how far he is willing to stretch the truth to hoax his audience.

Flock of Dodos makes a number of false assertions about scientists and institutions researching the theory of intelligent design. The CSC has launched a webpage, www.hoaxofdodos.com, detailing the false facts in the film.

Reminder:Darwin Day, Monday, February 12, ID The Future will podcast a special 30 minute program in honor of Darwin's birthday. The program features two short lectures from CSC senior fellows Dr. John West and Dr. Jonathan Wells.
