Berlinski & Denton, pt. 4: Envisioning a Post-Darwinian Science

On this episode of ID The Future, mathematician David Berlinski and biochemist Michael Denton discuss what a post-Darwinian future will look like as it relates to mathematics and biology. Berlinski explores the timelessness of numbers, while Denton expounds on his compelling top-down view of biology.

Berlinski is author of the recent book 1,2,3: Absolutely Elementary Mathematics. Denton's most recent work is Nature's Destiny.

Tune into the final portion of this exciting discussion!

Get Informed About Tennessee's Senate Bill 893

On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze interviews Casey Luskin about the controversy surrounding the passage of Tennessee's Senate Bill 893. This bill supports academic freedom in the classroom by protecting the rights of teachers to discuss scientific controversies, including the controversies over Darwinian evolutionary theory. However, there are those that denounce the bill as merely a medium for putting religion in the classroom. Is this a legitimate accusation? Listen in as Casey explains the true content and purpose of TN Senate Bill 893.

Berlinski & Denton, pt. 3: Top-Down versus Bottom-Up Worldview

On this episode of ID The Future, mathematician David Berlinski joins biochemist Michael Denton for continued discussion on the difficulties of Darwinian evolution to be a viable modern theory of the origin and development of life and the cosmos. On this episode, Berlinski explains why many conservative intellectuals have trouble doubting Darwin. Denton suggests that the mechanistic, Darwinian framework will eventually collapse, and reviews the essential differences in worldview between the Darwin supporter and the Darwin doubter. Tune in to the final episode of this stimulating exchange!

David Berlinski & Michael Denton, pt. 2: Darwinian Stalemate?

On this episode of ID The Future, philosopher and author David Berlinski joins geneticist and researcher Michael Denton for continued discussion on the debate over Darwinian evolution. Why has the theory persisted? What weaknesses threaten its existence in the 21st century?
As Berlinski puts it: "...applying Darwinian principles to problems of this level of complexity is like putting a Band-Aid on a wound caused by an atomic weapon. It's just not going to work." Listen in as Berlinski and Denton explain why the Darwinian mechanism is being widely questioned as a viable theory of the origin and development of life.

Micahel Denton and the coming downfall of the mechanistic view in cell biology

On today's program, Dr. Michael Denton discusses why he foresees the downfall of the mechanistic view, at least in cell biology, and the exhaustion of materialist researches into the origin of life. Conversely, Denton finds validity in Stephen Meyer's The Signature in the Cell, and in the proposition that intelligence was at work in the origin of life, and well before.

Dr. Denton has been a medical geneticist for over twenty years, a researcher on the mammalian eye, and is the author of two books, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis and, more recently, Nature's Destiny. Dr. Denton holds an M.D. from Bristol University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from King's College, London. He is currently a Senior Fellow with Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture.

New Philosophy of Cosmology Wrestles with Origins, Fine-Tuning

On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze reports on the latest views of a group of cosmologists who want to establish a new philosophy of cosmology to tackle the big questions of the universe. What happened after the Big Bang? Was there something before that to cause the existence of the universe? What are bubble universes? Why does our planet seem fine-tuned for the existence of human life? And why is man the only species so far to be intelligent enough to produce technology? Listen in as Boze discusses a new approach to some very old problems.

Read the article from The Atlantic as referred to by Boze on the podcast.

David Berlinski & Michael Denton: Primary Objections to Neo-Darwinism

On this episode of ID The Future, Discovery Institute senior fellows David Berlinski and Michael Denton, both long-time critics of neo-Darwinism, discuss their primary objections to neo-Darwinian theory. For Berlinski, a mathematician and author of 1, 2, 3: Absolutely Elementary Mathematics, the problem is quantitative and methodological. For Denton, a scientist and author of Nature's Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe, the problem is empirical. Don't miss this engaging discussion!

Multiverse Theory: Avoiding the Evidence of Design in our Universe

Which requires more faith? A belief in multiple universes or a belief in the intelligent design of our universe? On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze explores the ideas found in a recent Harper's Magazine article by MIT physicist and author Alan Lightman. Some physicists attempt to side-step the intelligent design implications of our finely-tuned universe by suggesting that ours is merely one of countless universes, each with its own laws and constants.

Lightman: "If the multiverse idea is correct, then the historic mission of physics to explain all the properties of our universe...is futile, a beautiful philosophical dream that simply isn't true."

Tune in as Boze explains why it takes more faith NOT to believe in intelligent design!

The Republican Anti-Science Brain

play_button.gif Click here to listen.

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze discusses Chris Mooney's recent article in The Huffington Post entitled Why Republicans Deny Science: The Quest for a Scientific Explanation. Mooney suggests that Conservatives who reject alarmism on climate change or disagree with any aspect of Darwinian evolution are merely denying reality because of the structure of their brains. Listen in and decide--is the political right's understanding of science crippled by their predetermined inability to process proven facts, or is there actually room for informed dissent?
