On this episode of ID The Future the CSC's Robert Crowther explores the growing number of claims that Darwinian evolution is the foundation of biology, the backbone of science, and the source for many new biodiscoveries. Are the assertions true? Is evolution the cornerstone of the biological sciences? Let's find out.

On this episode of ID the Future, Robert Crowther interviews Discovery Institute senior fellow David DeWolf, a leading expert on the legalities of teaching evolution who helped shape the sample academic freedom legislation available at www.AcademicFreedomPetition.com.

Dr. DeWolf explains the idea behind the academic freedom bill currently moving forward in Louisiana and what it means to teach the controversy over evolution. Should teachers have the freedom to treat Darwinism as an open and interesting question? Listen in and decide for yourself.

Textbook Teaches Strengths and Weaknesses

With the recent news coverage on teaching strengths and weaknesses, we thought it worth taking a look at a science textbook that teaches the whole story on evolution.

This episode of ID the Future examines the new textbook Explore Evolution: Arguments For and Against Neo-Darwinism. This is the first biology textbook to present the scientific evidence both for and against key aspects of Darwinian evolution.

Explore Evolution promotes inquiry-based learning, encouraging students to participate in the process of discovery, deliberation, and argument that scientists use to form their theories. For more information, visit the textbook website at www.exploreevolution.com.

Listen as CSC's Rob Crowther explains what makes this new science textbook so revolutionary.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines how the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has attacked Expelled, getting involved in movie criticism and religion promotion. With example after example, Luskin shows how the AAAS has admitted then denied intolerance towards scientists who dissent from Darwinism, prompting the question: is this about science or is it about politics? Listen in and judge for yourself.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin reports from Baton Rouge, LA, with Louisiana College professor of biology Wade Warren, who recently testified in favor of the Louisiana Academic Freedom bill.

Dr. Warren discusses his research on circadian rhythms and his skepticism of Darwin as a professional biologist, explaining why he supports academic freedom for teachers and sharing his own story of what happened when he tried to question Darwin as a graduate student.

Testifying Against Academic Freedom in Louisiana

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues his review of the recent academic freedom bill hearings in Louisiana. Of particular interest this time is Dr. Barbara Forrest, a professor of philosophy with an undeniable distaste for anything critical of Darwinism, who, in her testimony, demonstrated a deep disdain for the Discovery Institute and its insidious conspiracy to undermine American science education. Too bad, as Luskin puts it, her claims are "exceedingly and demonstrably wrong." And so, pointing out her flaws one-by-one, Luskin sets the record straight on the so-called conspiracy.
