On this episode of ID the Future, Logan Gage interviews Dr. Benjamin Wiker, author of The Darwin Myth: The Life and Lies of Charles Darwin.

What were Darwin's actual religious and philosophical views? Are atheists abusing Darwin's theory when they say Darwinism supports their atheist belief? Listen in as Dr. Wiker answers and explains the natural outgrowth of Social Darwinism from Darwin's theory.

Listen to previous IDTF episodes featuring Dr. Wiker here and here.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Biologic Insitute director Douglas Axe about his peer-reviewed paper in BIO-Complexity, "The Limit of Complex Adaptation: An Analysis Based on a Simple Model of Structured Bacterial Populations."

Dr. Axe explains complex adaptations -- adaptive changes that require more than one simple mutation to a genome in order for a particular adaptation to work -- and the difficulty Darwinian evolution faces when beneficial mutations have maladaptive intermediate stages.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines the lament of some Darwinists that new PhDs aren't being taught enough about evolution. How can "a generation of biologists without an adequate background in evolution" work as scientists? Tune in to find out the answer is so obvious that few committed evolutionists will accept it.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin reports on a new peer-reviewed paper arguing for the irreducible complexity of two systems vital to bird flight -- feathers and the avian respiratory system. The author, Leeds University professor Andy McIntosh, challenges his critics to consider the design hypothesis as a valid scientific assumption "borne out by the evidence itself."

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin reviews various comments from NCSE's Eugenie Scott as she flip-flopped on astronomer Martin Gaskell's qualifications for teaching, first saying he accepted evolution and so was qualified and later retracting her endorsement and incorrectly labeling him an "ID-creationist."

This special academic freedom edition of ID the Future features an interview with Frank Manion, senior counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, who represented astronomer Martin Gaskell in a recent lawsuit against the University of Kentucky (UK). By all appearances, UK denied Dr. Gaskell a job because of his perceived views on evolution and religious beliefs. Mr. Manion sheds light on what is an unfortunately common procedure in academia. Listen in as Mr. Manion shares revealing details in the case, including a flip-flop from NCSE's Eugenie Scott.

This episode of ID the Future features a special report on the academic freedom case of David Coppedge, who was fired last week by NASA's JPL after filing a discrimination lawsuit. Coppedge was targeted by his employer for his views on intelligent design.

David Coppedge is not alone, but he needs your help. Please stand with us against our government's firing of David Coppedge. Get ready now to call or email Charles Bolden, NASA's administrator, phone: 202-358-1010; email: , to send a respectful message that NASA should not get away with their discrimination.
