Does Nothing in Biology Make Sense Except in the Light of Evolution?

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.

Pt. 2: David Berlinski at "Socrates in the City"

On this episode of ID the Future, hear more of David Berlinski's talk at a Socrates in the City event in Manhattan. In the following segment, Berlinski discusses the impact of modern scientism and evaluates the social phenomena of New Atheism.

Pt. 1: David Berlinski at "Socrates in the City"

On this episode of ID the Future, listen to the first segment of CSC Sr. Fellow David Berlinski's talk at Socrates in the City, hosted by biographer and humorist Eric Metaxas. Tune in as Dr. Berlinski traces modern scientism, and its antipathy to religious belief, to the dawn of the Enlightenment.

What Does Evolution Have to Do With Immunology? Not Much

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews microbiologist and immunologist Donald Ewert about his previous work as associate editor for the journal Development and Comparitive Immunology, where he realized that the papers published were comparative studies that had nothing to do with evolution at all. Listen in to learn how, in Dr. Ewert's words, "evolutionary theory doesn't contribute to experimental biology."

Donald L. Ewert is a research immunologist/virologist who spent much of his career studying the molecular and cell biology of the immune system, as well as theories about its evolution. Dr. Ewert received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in 1976. As a microbiologist, he operated a research laboratory at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia for almost twenty years. The Wistar Institute is one of the world's leading centers for biomedical research. His research, supported by National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, and Department of Agriculture grants, has involved the immune system, viruses, and cellular biology.

C.S. Lewis's Doubts About Darwin

On this episode of ID the Future, Joshua Youngkin takes a brief look at C.S. Lewis's views on Darwinian evolution and intelligent design. Previously unpublished notes reveal that C.S. Lewis had early doubts about Darwin.

Missing Transitional Fossils in the Hominid Fossil Record

On this episode of ID the Future, listen to a short segment of a recent presentation Casey Luskin gave on the hominid fossil record. While popular media often reports that the fossil record is complete and conclusive, the technical scientific literature reveals this to be false. In actuality, human-like fossils and ape-like fossil are clearly distinct from one another, and the so-called transitional fossil record is highly fragmented. If Casey's talk sparks your interest, be sure to read Chapter 3 of Science and Human Origins.

Michael Denton: Remarkable Coincidences in Photosynthesis

On this episode of ID the Future, we listen in on a a few minutes from a lecture given by CSC Senior Fellow Michael Denton. We've all heard of the importance of photosynthesis as an oxygen creating process. In this segment, Denton explains the "remarkable set of coincidences" which makes the creation of oxygen through photosynthesis possible. From the specific energy of visible light to the unique properties of water, this degree of improbability screams DESIGN.

ENCODE Project Finds Mass Functionality for "Junk" DNA

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and Casey Luskin discuss the recent findings of the ENCODE Project, which has declared so-called "junk" DNA to be anything but. Much of the DNA that was previously supposed to be useless genetic material left over from random mutations that have been acted upon by natural selection, have now been found to perform several vital functions--just as intelligent design proponents have been predicting for years. What does this mean for intelligent design, and for Darwinian evolution?

To learn more, pick up a copy of Jonathan Wells' Myth of Junk DNA.

Bill Nye "The Science Guy" on Doubting Darwinian Evolution

On this episode of ID the Future, Big Think has a new video out featuring Bill Nye "The Science Guy" lamenting the fact that many people in the United States are skeptical of Darwinian evolution. Nye makes the claim that this skepticism holds back our country and society, and even goes so far as to call for Darwin-doubting parents to stay out of their kids' science education. Listen in as Casey Luskin responds to Nye's assertions.
