Film The Revisionaries Revises History of 2009 Texas State Board of Education Evolution Debate

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin shows how the film The Revisionaries revises history. Coming soon to PBS, The Revisionaries falsely suggests that intelligent design and creationism were required in the 2009 Texas Science Standards (TEKS) and pushed for by ignorant fundamentalist board members who ignored the advice of all qualified experts. Tune in as Casey exposes this misinformation and reviews the hard facts.

In Colorado, Darwin Activists Fight Academic Freedom with Gross Misinformation

On this episode of ID the Future, David Klinghoffer discusses Colorado's House Bill 13-1089, which proposes a law, based on Discovery Institute academic freedom policy, that would protect scientific instruction in the classroom. Darwin activists such as the National Center for Scientific Education are aggressively pushing gross misinformation in an attempt to keep the bill from being passed into law.

UPDATED: Whether Lab or Cell, It's Design

[Editor's note: The wrong link was attched to this podcast. It has been updated and the links above now go to the correct program.]

On this episode of ID The Future: If human engineers in the lab get molecular machines to imitate cellular machines, it's intelligent design. What does this imply about the cellular machines?

Mind over Matter: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and the Implications for Materialism

On this episode of ID the Future, UCLA psychiatrist Jeffrey Schwartz shares with Casey Luskin about his research on obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). What does neuroscience tell us about the relationship between the mind and the brain? Schwartz explains in his book, The Mind and the Brain, that patients treated for OCD actually had the power to change the neural pathways in their brains by the power of their minds. What does this mean for materialism in medicine? Listen in and discover the real-world implications in this debate.

Intelligent Design Supporter Expelled from Civil Liberties Organization

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Cecil Phillips, who tells the story of how he was expelled from Americans United for Separation of Church and State because he was a scientific skeptic of Darwinian evolution. Listen in as they discuss how the Darwin lobby seeks to marginalize Darwin skeptics by branding them with inaccurate labels and shutting down free speech.

Moving the Goalpost: How Darwin's Theory Survives

It's easy to win the game when you can move the goalpost. On this episode of ID the Future, biologist and Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Jonathan Wells explains how Darwinism, unlike football, has only one rule: survival of the fittest. The fittest are those who survive, and Darwinists are determined to survive at all costs--even if it means moving the goalpost.

The Debate Over Darwin: Stephen Meyer vs. Michael Shermer

What can we learn when we balance the facts and arguments on both sides of each question? This episode of ID the Future features a 2009 debate between Stephen Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell, and Michael Shermer, Founding Publisher of Skeptic magazine, on Lee Strobel's "Faith Under Fire" program, arguing for and against intelligent design.

Paper Lays to Rest "Vernanimalcula," Supposed Precambrian Ancestor of Bilaterian Animals

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze talks with Casey Luskin about the Precambrian fossil Vernanimalcula, which was thought to be the proof that Darwinists needed to refute the idea of the Cambrian explosion--the idea that life exploded in complexity during a specific period of time. Vernanimalcula was thought to be the Precambrian ancestor of all bilaterian animals, dating back to tens of millions of years prior to the Cambrian explosion. However, a new article published in Evolution & Development has concluded that "There is no evidential basis for interpreting Vernanimalcula as an animal, let alone a bilaterian."

Is Intelligent Design "Creationism in a Cheap Lab Coat"?

How We Know Intelligent Design Is Science

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin addresses the question: Is intelligent design science? While the precise definition of "science" has long been debated, most would agree that there are certain qualities that clearly define some ideas as science. Luskin examines the theory of intelligent design by this criteria, showing how ID uses the scientific method, undergoes peer review, and does not require non-natural causes.

The Intelligent Design of the Immune System

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Donald L. Ewert continues to explain why the vertebrate adaptive immune system does not use "random" or "chance" processes like Darwinian evolution to generate antibody diversity. Instead, he argues that the immune system is intelligently designed. Listen in as Dr. Ewert shares one of the most interesting stories in science, the generation of antibody diversity.

Read the final part of Dr. Ewert's continuing response at ENV here.

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.
