On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin explores intelligent design's scientific merit in paleontology. While many of our listeners may be familiar with the evidence for ID in biology, the fossil record shows us that there's a strong argument for intelligent design worth examining in paleontology, as well. Listen in to learn more.

Biomimetics and the Positive Implications for Intelligent Design

play_button.gif Click here to listen.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin looks at Biomimetics, a new movement in science that adapts designs from nature to solve problems in engineering, materials science, medicine, and other fields. While engineers and other researchers turn to nature for guidance and inspiration in producing human technology, the positive implications for intelligent design grow. Should scientists consider the possibility that biological systems, which outperform human technology, were intelligently designed? Listen in and find out.

The Story of Jesse Kilgore and the Consequences of Teaching One Side of Evolution

play_button.gif Click here to listen.

This episode of ID the Future tells the story of Jesse Kilgore, a college student whose loss of faith and subsequent suicide has been linked to his biology class and Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion. After his professor challenged him to read the anti-theistic book and rule out the possibility of God's existence in light of the evidence for evolution, Jesse experienced a crisis of faith. Now his father is arguing for academic freedom for intelligent design and critiques of Darwin's theory. Listen in as he and others explain how Jesse was affected by reading this book.

The tragedy of Jesse Kilgore's death affects all of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who knew and loved him.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses how trails of microorganisms knock down a favorite Darwinist argument against the Cambrian explosion. Listen in as Luskin explains why Darwinists remain stuck -- whether they like it or not -- with a very explosive Cambrian explosion that isn't the mere artifact of an imperfect fossil record.

Materialist Science Fiction at a Public Library

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines the lame materialist science fiction being promoted to students at a local public library. With wild speculations on the existence of life outside our planet based on the idea that life just takes a "bing" and some interstellar chemicals, this book should be not on reference shelves, but in the science fiction section. Listen in as Luskin lays a Dewey decimal smackdown on Life on Other Planets.

Feathered Dinosaurs or Flightless Birds?

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines the latest fossil evidence of so-called feathered dinosaur fossil. While the mainstream media trumpets these finds as conclusive evidence in the case for evolution, Luskin explores whether the "feathered dinos" might actually be secondarily flightless birds. Have Darwinists interpreted the evidence to fit the data, or to fit their evolutionary paradigm? Listen in and find out.

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC's Casey Luskin examines Richard Dawkins' crusade against religion and what it might mean for the teaching of evolution in schools.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews neurosurgeon Michael Egnor and UCLA psychiatrist Jeffrey Schwartz on the interaction between the mind and the brain in science fiction.
