On this episode of ID the Future Anika Smith interviews Lehigh University professor Michael Behe about irreducible complexity and the way his critics have tried to address his idea... without actually having to address it. What happens when Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences publishes a paper substituting reducible systems to test irreducible complexity? And what does it mean when prestigious journals try to refute your idea... and keep claiming to refute it without allowing you to respond? Listen in and discover what's at the root of all this Darwinian anxiety: the power of an idea.

On this episode of ID the Future Anika Smith interviews Illustra Media producer Lad Allen on the new film out next week, Darwin's Dilemma. As the third film in the intelligent design trilogy from Illustra Media, Darwin's Dilemma represents a capstone for Allen, who traversed the globe to present the story of Darwin's journey to his theory of evolution and the Cambrian Explosion, the nagging problem for Darwin in the fossil record that has become a crisis for evolution today.

Listen in as Lad Allen shares with us what it's like to shoot on location in four continents and work with scientists like Simon Conway Morris and Stephen Meyer.

This episode of ID the Future features part two of an interview with Dr. Rebecca Keller, who discusses the nature of science and interpretation and how it applies to science education. Her textbooks focus on the practice of science, and are available at Gravitas Publications.

Dr. Keller holds a Ph.D. in Biophysical Chemistry from the University of New Mexico, spent years doing biochemical research on molecular machines, and is an outspoken proponent of teaching students about both the scientific strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian evolution. She is also the CEO of Gravitas Publications, which publishes the Real Science for Kids textbook series, providing textbooks that equip children with the tools they need to become scientific thinkers.

Seeking God in Science: An Atheist Defends Intelligent Design

In this ID the Future podcast, Casey Luskin interviews Bradley J. Monton, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Colorado, Boulder, about his new book Seeking God in Science: An Atheist Defends Intelligent Design (Broadview Press, 2009). As the book's title suggests, Monton is an atheist who feels that some intelligent design (ID) arguments hold merit and are worth taking seriously. Listen to this podcast as Monton explains how ID-critics commonly dismiss the theory through fallacious objections that do not address the actual arguments of ID-proponents.
