Rediscovering the Mystery of Ourselves: Part Two With Science Writer James Le Fanu

This episode of ID the Future features part two of Casey Luskin's interview with James LeFanu, author of Why Us?: How Science Rediscovered the Mystery of Ourselves. According to Dr. LeFanu, one of the problems with Darwin's theory and where it stands today is that it presupposes that the argument is closed, draining interest and fascination from the question of our origins.

Dr. LeFanu discusses the problems with the Darwinian explanation for the evolution of the eye and how the development of genetics has brought our attention to the deep inscrutability of the nature of genetic structures and the origin of life. Can natural selection acting on random mutations account for these features? Listen in as Dr. LeFanu explains how science is on the cusp of this intriguing moment, rediscovering the mystery of ourselves.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews attorney Peter Lepiscopo of Lepiscopo & Morrow who represented Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture in its successful lawsuit to obtain records that the California Science Center had previously sought to conceal regarding its cancellation of the screening of a pro-intelligent design film last year.

The Science Center continues to "deny any and all liability relating to the claims," according to the settlement agreement. However, it agreed to pay Discovery Institute's legal fees and to surrender more than a thousand pages of documents it had been withholding since they were requested under the California Public Records Act last year.

Luskin and Lepiscopo discuss the case, and what if any impact it will have on other academic freedom cases currently in the courts.
