On this episode of ID the Future, acclaimed author and Discovery Institute senior fellow David Klinghoffer takes a look at the academic freedom -- or lack thereof -- for scientists who support intelligent design, scientists who are forced to don disguises and go underground in order to protect their careers.

This podcast is based on Mr. Klinghoffer's commentary in Townhall Magazine, "Evolution's Glass Ceiling".

On this episode of ID The Future Dr. Michael Egnor, professor of neurosurgery and pediatrics at State University of New York, Stony Brook, tells his story of how he became a full-blown skeptic of Darwinian evolution. Dr. Egnor explains how he originally had internal doubt about the ability of Darwinism to produce new biological information. These doubts were then brought directly to the surface when he read books by leading ID-theorists like William Dembski and Michael Behe.

Thoughts: On Critical Analysis and the Classroom

Why is the science establishment against critical analysis? As Rob Crowther explains in this episode of ID the Future, if students are to learn science, and not dogma, they must be free to analyze the evidence-- both for and against evolution.

The Design of Life: What the Evidence of Biological Systems Reveals

In this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses The Design of Life: Discovering Signs of Intelligence in Biological Systems with author Dr. William Dembski. Is design in nature just an "illusion", as Richard Dawkins proclaims? In this latest publication, Dembski and co-author Dr. Jonathan Wells show the answer is "no". Biologists have and continue to use the assumption of design successfully, precisely because design in biology is not an illusion but real.

Intelligently Designed Nanotechnology

As Casey Luskin reveals in this episode of ID the Future, eminent biologists have said that they must continually remind themselves that what they see in biology evolved, and was not designed. But now engineers are turning to biology to replace human technology because biological pathways provide superior solutions to biomedical-technological needs. Is this trend more consistent with an evolved biosphere, or an intelligent designed one? Listen to this podcast and decide for yourself.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines a recent editorial by Nature magazine praising the NAS booklet on "Science, Evolution, and Creationism." Luskin argues that Nature's rhetorical and political defense of evolution has increased to the point that it threatens the prestige of science in society and endangering the academic freedom of scientists who dissent from Darwinism.

Darwin Day Lecture: Proselytizing for Darwin's God in the Classroom

For years supporters of Darwin's theory claimed to oppose teaching religion in the nation's science classrooms. But just in time for Darwin Day 2008, leading evolution proponents including the National Academy of Sciences, the Public Broadcasting Service, and the National Center for Science Education have been cynically promoting religious instruction in schools as a way of defusing opposition to Darwinian evolution. Dr. John West, author of Darwin Day in America, discusses Darwinists latest efforts to insert religion into the classroom.

This event was filmed in front of a live audinece on Feb. 6th, 2008 for broadcast on the web as part of the ID the Future Darwin Day broadcast on February 12th.

On this episode of ID the Future, Logan Paul Gage reviews Alister McGrath's The Dawkins Delusion, the first book-length critique of Richard Dawkins' infamous The God Delusion.
