Spider Tricks are a Treat for Science
On this episode of ID the Future, hear about the amazing design of one of Halloween's creepiest creatures - the spider. Listen in to learn how the jumping spider's eight eyes demonstrate division of labor, and how the spider's silk is being used for eco-friendly fiber optics and biodegradable "plastics."
The Mysterious Epigenome: What Lies Beyond DNA
On this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Thomas Woodward, founder and director of the C.S. Lewis Society, about his latest book, The Mysterious Epigenome: What Lies Beyond DNA, and the new discoveries in biology that affect our understanding of the genome. Woodward explains how epigenetics is bringing about a revolution in biology.
Live Broadcast of the Science & Culture Update with Stephen Meyer and David Klinghoffer
On this episode of ID the Future, listen in on this special edition of the Science and Culture Update, recorded in front of a live audience in the Medved Show studio. Michael Medved is joined by Darwin's Doubt author Stephen Meyer and Evolution News & Views editor David Klinghoffer for a discussion about the misuse of science to close minds, rather than open them, in ongoing debates on controversial topics such as evolution and climate change.
Dr. Cornelius Hunter: Evidence Against Darwinian Evolution in the Hammerhead Shark
On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze interviews Dr. Cornelius Hunter about serveral lines of evidence against Darwinian evolution found in the hammerhead shark. The unique design of the hammerhead's aerodynamic head, or cephalofoil, includes electromagnetic tracking of prey and binocular vision. Although new research reported in Science Daily gratuitously presents these unique features as a product of unguided evolution, the Darwinian framework fails to offer any insight into how they might have arisen.
Dr. Cornelius G. Hunter is Adjunct Professor at Biola University and author of the award-winning Darwin's God: Evolution and the Problem of Evil. His blog can be found at darwins-god.blogspot.com.
The Michael Medved Show Weekly Science & Culture Update: Featuring Stephen Meyer and Christopher Booker
On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer and Christopher Booker, a columnist for the London Telegraph and author of The Real Global Warming Distaster, talk climate change skepticism and scientific consensus with Michael Medved. How do scientific issues get so controversial, and why does the majority opinion of the general public go against the so-called "scientific consensus," in regards to evolution as well as climate change? Tune in as they discuss.
Heckler's Veto Threatens Academic Freedom on Evolution
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses recent incidents that reveal a disturbing trend: Darwin activists are using a "heckler's veto" to intimidate academic institutions into shutting down scientific inquiry over life's origins. Listen in as Luskin demonstrates how the heckler's veto has become the latest tool for suppression of ID-friendly viewpoints.
Has Science Shown that We're Related to Apes?
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin shows how the human fossil record contradicts the expectations of neo-Darwinian evolution. Luskin takes a close look at the technical literature surrounding human origins and explains why the evidence does not, despite common claims to the contrary, indicate that humans evolved from ape-like precursors.
To further explore topics surrounding science and faith, see Salvo Magazine's special 80-page Supplemental Issue on Science and Faith, which includes contributions from William Dembski, Jonathan Wells, Paul Nelson, Stephen Meyer, John West, Mike Keas, Richard Weikart, and Frank Tipler, among others.
The Michael Medved Show Weekly Science & Culture Update: Featuring Wesley J. Smith and John West
On this episode of ID the Future, Michael Medved, DI Senior Fellow Wesley J. Smith, and CSC Associate Director John West examine the question: Are humans unique, or are we, as many argue, just another animal? Tune in to this enlightening conversation about human exceptionalism and dignity -- the subject of the upcoming documentary The War on Humans.
Darwinists Grapple with Findings on Convergent Evolution
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses recent findings on convergent evolution that conflict with typical evolutionary thinking. Darwinian evolution is supposed to have no goal, but convergent evolution implies that, against all odds, species are evolving the same complex traits -- over and over again. Is this "surprising" conclusion best explained within Darwinian theory, or the intelligent design paradigm? Listen in and decide.
Sutter's Mill Meteorite: Big News or PR for Materialism?
On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin discusses recent media coverage of the 2012 Sutter's Mill meteorite that falsely reports it as containing "seeds of early life" which could have helped generate "[t]he primordial soup of the early Earth." Tune in as Luskin reveals the weak science -- and significant political motives -- behind these claims, which one organic chemist describes as "at best misleading, at worst . . . down-right fraudulent."
The Michael Medved Show Weekly Science & Culture Update: Featuring Jay Richards on Economics and Darwinism
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Jay Richards joins Michael Medved for a discussion about capitalism and Darwinism. President Obama says that Republicans push a "thinly veiled social Darwinism." Is the free market an amoral system where only the fittest survive and thrive? Listen in as Dr. Richards offers insight into our current economic climate, negative impacts of Obamacare, and more.
Evolutionism and Rational Knowledge: An Interview with Felipe Aizpún
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Felipe Aizpún, author of Evolucionismo y Conocimiento Racional (Evolutionism and Rational Knowledge), a great resource for those who want to learn about intelligent design in Spanish. Listen in as Mr. Aizpún explains how evolution is not only a scientific issue, but a philosophical and epistemic one, and discusses the dissent from Darwinism in the Spanish-speaking world
Mr. Aizpún has written widely on philosophy, ethics and science, and he is the Editorial Director of Organización Internacional para el Avance Cientifico del Diseño Inteligente (OIACDI). Mr. Aizpún contributes at the Spanish-language blog Darwinodi.com.
