Frank Tipler: Could Einstein Be Published Under Today's Peer-Review Policies?

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Frank Tipler discusses how leading science journals are increasingly hostile to new ideas, publishing only papers that are consistent with the dominant views of the scientific community. Tipler argues that if Einstein were to try and get a paper on his relativity theory published under today's peer-review system, he would certainly be rejected, reminding us that academia needs to encourage scientists to challenge conformity in order to cultivate great thinkers.

Prof. John Lennox on His New Book Seven Days That Divide the World

On this episode of ID The Future, Jay Richards talks with Professor and author John Lennox about one of his latest books, Seven Days that Divide the World: The Beginning According to Genesis and Science. In his book, Lennox delves into controversial issues surrounding science and faith, answering common questions regarding apparent tensions between scripture and scientific evidence. Tune in as Professor Lennox demonstrates that science and faith are indeed compatible.

Prof. John Lennox Responds to Stephen Hawking

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Jay Richards talks with John Lennox about his book God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway?. In this book, Prof. Lennox counters Stephen Hawking's argument in The Grand Design that "the universe can and will create itself from nothing." Is philosophy dead, as Hawking claims? Is the so-called M-theory the "only viable candidate" for a complete 'theory of everything'? Tune in and find out!

Part 3: Einstein Vs. Darwin

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin and Dr. Frank Tipler continue their discussion of fine-tuning, the multiverse, and the cosmological evidence for design. Dr. Tipler argues that the initial conditions of the universe must have been "fine-tuned," explaining that our universe was at its minimum entropy at its beginning. The probability of this condition occurring randomly is 1 in 1010^123 -staggeringly unlikely. Could the universe be "self-creating," as Stephen Hawking has argued? Listen in as Tipler says the answer is "No."

Why is Intelligent Design such a Dangerous Theory that it has to be Censored?

On this episode of ID The Future, listen to a short clip of an address to the National Press Club by Dr. Jay Richards about academic freedom. As Richards explains, Darwinists are actively working to censor scientist and scholars advocating intelligent design, and are trying to curb their right to freely discuss even just scientific criticisms of Darwinian evolution. There is a growing trend of dogmatic Darwinists trying to intimidate people who are in some way associated with researching intelligent design into being quiet, rather than engaging in a civil debate about the scientific merits of their arguments.

Part 2: Einstein Vs. Darwin

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin once again sits down with Dr. Frank Tipler, Professor of Mathematics and Physics at Tulane University and author of The Anthropic Cosmological Principle. Casey and Dr. Tipler continue their discussion on fine tuning in the universe, the multiverse, and the evidence for cosmic design.

Part 1: Einstein Vs. Darwin

On this episode of ID the Future, hear from Frank Tipler, Professor of Mathematics and Physics at Tulane University and author of The Anthropic Cosmological Principle. Dr. Tipler compares the perspectives of Einstein and Darwin and explains how the difference in their views applies to the debate over origins, Darwinian evolution, and intelligent design.

Dr. Ben Carson on Rejecting Darwinian Evolution

On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze speaks with Dr. Ben Carson, renowned pediatric neurosurgeon and Darwin doubter. Dr. Carson was invited to deliver the 2012 commencement speech at Emory University. Unfortunately, upon uncovering his non-allegiance to Darwinian ideology, 500 faculty members and students alike signed a letter in protest of his welcome. Listen in to hear Dr. Carson discuss this ill treatment and why his acute knowledge of the brain has led him to reject Darwinism.

Dr. Ben Carson is the Director of the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins. An internationally renowned physician, Dr. Carson has authored over 100 neurosurgical publications, along with three best-selling books, and has been awarded 38 honorary doctorate degrees and dozens of national merit citations.

Darwin as the Pinball Wizard: Talking Probability with Robert Marks

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Robert J. Marks, who has published two papers with William Dembski and another paper with Dr. Dembski and graduate student Winston Ewert. This was Dr. Marks' first IDTF interview since Baylor University shut down his pro-ID Evolutionary Informatics Lab, now available at a third-party website, EvoInfo.org.

Listen in as Dr. Marks discusses his research on probability and the problems it poses for Darwin's theory.

Part 2: Dog Breeds: Proof of Macroevolution?

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin once again sits down with geneticist Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig, continuing their discussion of whether dogs could have evolved by Darwinian evolution.

Dog Breeds: Proof of Macroevolution?

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with geneticist Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig about his recent article on the evolution of dogs. Casey and Dr. Lönnig evaluate the claim that dogs somehow demonstrate macroevolution.
