On this episode of ID the Future, brain surgeon and ID blogger Michael Egnor talks with CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin about his internet debates with Jerry Coyne and the trends and dynamics he sees in the ID/evolution blogosphere. Dr. Egnor also speaks briefly on the evidence he sees for intelligent design in the brain.
On this episode of ID the Future, neurosurgeon Michael Egnor and UCLA psychiatrist Jeffrey Schwartz join Casey Luskin for a discussion of materialism and its effect on modern science. Listen in to a conversation that begins with the question of whether animals have souls and turns to a lively discussion of Francis Crick and the way his materialist ideology blinded him to the implications of his own scientific discovery.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews neurosurgeon Michael Egnor and UCLA psychiatrist Jeffrey Schwartz on the interaction between the mind and the brain in science fiction. Could the mind really be an illusion from a computer program, like in The Matrix? Listen in as Drs. Egnor and Schwartz explain how materialist fictions ultimately beg the question.
On this episode of ID the Future, Logan Gage interviews professor of neurosurgery at SUNY, Stony Brook Michael Egnor. Dr. Egnor discusses his current research into cerebral blood flow and the buffering of the brain from the force of blood pumped by the heart. Dr. Egnor’s approach to this problem is that of an engineer, using the design inference to understand how the brain protects itself from the pulsatility of the arterial blood flow of the heart.
On this episode of ID the Future, professor of neurosurgery Michael Egnor shares his experience asking hard questions to prominent Darwinists on their blogs. An experience which began with a simple question to TIME magazine’s Michael Lemonick soon showed how the problem with the current debate is that only ID proponents are asking how biological complexity arose. Dr. Egnor’s insights into the search for scientific truth challenges Darwinism and those who defend the theory without engaging with his questions.
On this episode of ID The Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin takes a look at the medical field and how it relates to Darwinism. Is Darwinian evolutionary theory a big part of how doctors think and the way they practice medicine?. According to Professor of Neurosurgery, Dr. Michael Egnor, the answer is no. The modern practice of medicine does not rely at all on neo Darwinism. In the past, especially in the early 20th century, explains Egnor, the medical field did get a large dose of Darwinism, most noticeably in the area of eugenics. Egnor goes on to show that there has been, however, no contribution by applying Darwinian evolutionary theory to modern medicine or medical research aside from eugenics.
On this episode of ID The Future Dr. Michael Egnor, professor of neurosurgery and pediatrics at State University of New York, Stony Brook, tells his story of how he became a full-blown skeptic of Darwinian evolution. Dr. Egnor explains how he originally had internal doubt about the ability of Darwinism to produce new biological information. These doubts were then brought directly to the surface when he read books by leading ID-theorists like William Dembski and Michael Behe.
