On this episode of ID the Future, Jay Richards and astrobiologist Guillermo Gonzalez discuss several discoveries made in the past 15 years supporting their conclusions in The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos Is Designed for Discovery.Read More ›
On this episode of ID the Future, host Jay Richards and astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, authors of The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos Is Designed for Discovery, discuss what’s changed in the 15 years since the book first appeared. One big change, the number of exo-planets discovered has exploded from 200 or so to several thousand. Gonzalez walks through this and other exciting recent advances in astronomy, and the two discuss how these new discoveries bear on the predictions and arguments they advanced in their book.

On this special year-end episode of ID The Future, David Boze celebrates the impact of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture in supporting scientific research and defending academic freedom for scientists, scholars, and others in the intelligent design movement. Boze interviews astronomer Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez, Biologic Institute director Dr. Douglas Axe, and author and Discovery Institute senior fellow Dr. David Berlinski.Read More ›
Have scientists discovered a planet with possible life on it? On this episode of ID the Future, Anika Smith interviews astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, co-author of The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery. As the co-originator of the Galactic Habitable Zone, Dr. Gonzalez knows better than anyone what it takes for a planet to sustain life. Listen in as he tells us whether the newly discovered exoplanet Gliese 581d is habitable.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez joins Casey Luskin for an interview, delightfully holding forth on the Copernican Principle and his latest research regarding extrasolar planets. Listen in as Dr. Gonzalez also shares about his experience being interviewed for the upcoming film, “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.”
On this episode of ID The Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin interviews noted Iowa State University astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez about the announcement of a forthcoming cosmology article by Lawrence M. Krauss and Robert J. Scherrer (Case Western Reserve University, and Vanderbilt University respectively) titled The Return of a Static Universe and the End of Cosmology. The paper is already inviting a great deal of comment since it deals with the debate over the big bang and the static universe, and says extrapolating forward in time, in the future we will be incapable of determining the true nature of the universe.Read More ›
In biology one of the main pieces of evidence for intelligent design is the bacterial flagellum. What are some of the main pieces of evidence supporting intelligent design in the field of astronomy? On this episode of ID The Future we feature a short clip of astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez explaining that for the past 50 years physicists and astronomers have been exploring the idea of the fine tuning of the constants of nature. Gonzalez points to this fine tuning as one piece of evidence for intelligent design and then goes on to describe some of the other evidences within astronomy and cosmology.

On this episode of ID The Future we’re highlighting a short clip of senior fellow Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez at the 2006 Intelligent Design Under Fire conference where he discusses the hypothesis he and co-author Jay Richards laid out in their book The Privileged Planet, which is that The conditions for life in the universe correlate or overlap with the conditions you need to make scientific discoveries.Read More ›
