Newspeak in Biology Erases Design in Favor of Evolution

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin takes a look at a startling new phenomenon: some ID critics today are so fearful of lending any credence towards intelligent design that they are recommending that biologists stop using the word "design" entirely.

Gorilla Gene Sequencing Casts New Doubt on Human Origin Assumptions

On this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin discusses how the recent complete sequencing of the gorilla genome has challenged conventional thinking about human ancestry and explains what neo-Darwinists are doing to try to minimize the impact of this new information. Says Luskin: "There is not a clear signal of ancestral relationships that is coming out of the gorilla genome once you add it into the mix." Tune in to hear about this interesting development!

Hugh Hewitt Show: Dr. Meyer on Darwin's Doubt and the Cambrian Explosion

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Stephen Meyer is a guest on the Hugh Hewitt show. Meyer and Hewitt discuss Meyer's recent New York Times Bestselling book Darwin's Doubt. Meyer walks listeners through the main points of the book, along with other evidence for the theory of intelligent design. Meyer also dispels the myth that there is a scientific consensus on Darwinian evolution. Meyer's eloquent handling of this complex scientific topic makes the nuances of the debate accessible to the general public.

Exploring the deepest threat to our Constitution

On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer and Michael Medved discuss materialism and how it effects our constitution. Not in the sense of buying more 'stuff' but instead the particular conception of human nature. The idea of free will, that we are capable of self-governance is under attack. The forced theory that life is the product of an unguided, undirected process implies we don't have free will. That law and morality is still evolving indicates the need to constantly update our constitution placing the document under threat as never before.

On this episode of ID the Future, Joshua Youngkin interviews Dr. Alastiar Noble, director of the Centre for Intelligent Design, about the debate over ID in the UK. The discussion hones in on Intelligent Design in the science education setting as they contrast the differences and similarities between the ID movements in the U.S. and the UK.

Dr. Alastair Noble studied chemistry and did research at the University of Glasgow. He has been a high school chemistry teacher, adviser, schools inspector and educational administrator. He has also worked on educational programmes within the BBC, the CBI, and the Health Service.

On Science Education, Take a Lesson from the Vulcans

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses the Next Generations Science Standards (NGSS) and the attempt to promote pro-Darwin science standards will diminish local control over what students learn. In Star Trek, the scientifically advanced race of Vulcans lives by the motto 'infinite diversity and infinite combinations'. Their formula for scientific diversity makes sense as science advances by challenging old ideas and encouraging people to test new ones. Right now public school education seems intent on adopting the opposite philosophy.

Next Generation Science Standards - education or indoctrination?

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses the new effort of the next generation science standards. The policy intends to establish a national science standard, eliminating the ability to question Darwinian evolution. Leading science education theorists recognize that the best way to learn is to debate the evidence both for and against a particular concept. A great way to learn about credible perspectives other than Darwinism is to look at the newly released multimedia curriculum Discovering ID, which is designed for educational use by home schools and private schools.

For a limited time only, when you purchase the Discovering Intelligent Design Curriculum, you'll receive two full-length science documentaries (an additional value of $39.90) completely FREE! These DVDs produced by Illustra Media, Metamorphosis: The Case for Intelligent Design in a Nutshell Chrysalis and Flight: The Genius of Birds, will serve to enhance your discovery of the scientific evidence for intelligent design. Hurry to purchase now, as this offer won't last long!

Censorship Loses: New Scientific Volume Challenges Neo-Darwinism

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin and Joshua Youngkin discuss the release of the new scientific volume Biological Information: New Perspectives, a multi-disciplinary analysis of standard evolutionary theory that challenges its ability to explain the origin of biological information. Luskin and Youngkin tell the story of how this volume was initially barred from publication under pressure from Darwin lobbyists, but has now been published. Listen in!

Ball State University Class Teaches that "Science Must Destroy Religion"

On this episode of ID the Future, attorney Joshua Youngkin, Discovery Institute Program Officer in Public Policy and Legal Affairs, gives some background on Ball State University's violation of academic freedom -- an issue that has escalated with BSU President Jo Ann Gora's recent edict forbidding all faculty from expressing support for intelligent design in the classroom. Youngkin reveal's BSU's targeted application of speech restrictions, discussing how BSU allows faculty to teach that "Science Must Destroy Religion," and calls for BSU lift its ban on discussions of intelligent design.

If you support academic freedom on intelligent design, please contact Ball State University's Board of Trustees right away and ask them to overturn President Gora's ban on faculty discussions of intelligent design. Take action now.

Back to School Tips for 2013

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin offers tips for when diversity doesn't extend into the biology classroom. Casey suggests never opting out of learning evolution--in fact, both students and parents should learn as much as they can in order to be proactively informed about a variety of scientific viewpoints. A great way to learn about credible perspectives other than Darwinism is to look at the newly released multimedia curriculum Discovering ID, which is designed for educational use by home schools and private schools.

Special Back-to-School Offer: For a limited time only, when you purchase the Discovering Intelligent Design Curriculum, you'll receive two full-length science documentaries (an additional value of $39.90) completely FREE! These DVDs produced by Illustra Media, Metamorphosis: The Case for Intelligent Design in a Nutshell Chrysalis and Flight: The Genius of Birds, will serve to enhance your discovery of the scientific evidence for intelligent design.

The Michael Medved Show Weekly Science & Culture Update: Stephen Meyer on Ball State University, Intelligent Design & Academic Freedom

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Stephen C. Meyer explains the latest developments in the academic freedom case with professor Eric Hedin at Ball State University. The president of Ball State University has issued a gag order on teachers, prohibiting them from discussing intelligent design in their classrooms. Dr. Meyer explains how intelligent design falls under the same scientific category as Darwin's own theory of evolution: inference to the best explanation.

How to Approach Controversial Topics: Investigate and Think for Yourself

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin comments on some recent tips from an evolutionary anthropologist on "How to read and understand a scientific paper: a guide for non-scientists" -- which include the close-minded recommendation to ignore any scientific research that is affiliated with Discovery Institute. Listen in as Casey gives his own advice on how to approach controversial issues such as the Darwinian evolution vs. intelligent design debate.
