On this episode of ID The Future we present an interview with Joseph C. Campana, founder of ResearchID.org, a wiki-based website devoted to cataloguing scientific applications of intelligent design. CSC’s Casey Luskin talks to Campana about what inspired the website, and how people can get involved to help constructively catalogue intelligent design scientific research.
On this episode of ID The Future CSC’s Robert Crowther examines whether intelligent design is an impediment to scientific progress, and says the answer is an emphatic no.Read More ›
On this episode of ID The Future the CSC’s Robert Crowther explores the growing number of claims that Darwinian evolution is the foundation of biology, the backbone of science, and the source for many new biodiscoveries. Are the assertions true? Is evolution the cornerstone of the biological sciences? Let’s find out.
On this episode of ID The Future we have a short clip about the The Privileged Planet. In the book, authors Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay W. Richards suggest Earth was designed for scientific discovery. They introduce a new idea, more than just that the earth is just a rarity in the universe they argue that Earth is ideal for scientific observation. Specifically they critique the Copernican principle, which holds that Earth is not special in its ability to support life. In this clip, Jay Richards lays out the problems with the Copernican principle.Read More ›
On this episode of ID The Future we’re featuring a short segment from a debate between CSC senior fellow and biologist, Jonathan Wells, and Massimo Pigliucci, Professor of Ecology and Evolution, State University of New York at Stony Brook that appeared on PBS on the program, Uncommon Knowledge. In this segment, moderated by Peter Robinson, they discuss whether or not intelligent design is science and what exactly is the definition of science. You can watch or listen to the full debate at the Uncommon Knowledge website.
On this episode of ID The Future, CSC’s Robert Crowther highlights one of the foundational books of the theory of intelligent design. No Free Lunch, the sequel to mathematician and CSC senior fellow William Dembski’s Cambridge University Press book The Design Inference, explores key questions about the origin of specified complexity. No Free Lunch demonstrates that design theory shows great promise of providing insight in the field of evolutionary computation
On this episode of ID The Future CSC’s Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Geoffrey Simmons author of the new book Billions of Missing Links. In the book Simmons shows that as modern science has progressed from the visible to the invisible (microscopic, submicroscopic, genetic, biochemical and genetic) the numbers of missing links have skyrocketed. Every “link” discovered brings many more questions (missing links) than answers.Read More ›
On this second of a two part ID The Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin continues his discussion with CSC Fellow Dr. Geoffrey Simmons on what makes him skeptical of Darwinian evolution. Dr. Simmons is the author of the forthcoming Billions of Missing Links (2007) and Discovery Institute will host a book release party for him in its Seattle offices on Feb. 16.
On this first of a two part ID The Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin interviews CSC Fellow Dr. Geoffrey Simmons on what makes him skeptical Darwinian evolution. Dr. Simmons has a BS in biology; coursework completed for MS in microbiology, University of Illinois; an M.D., University of Illinois Medical School; Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine, LAC-USC Medical Center; Boarded in Internal Medicine since 1974. He is a licensed and practicing physician in Eugene, OR, and the author of the books What Darwin Didn’t Know (2004) and the forthcoming Billions of Missing Links (2007).
On this video episode of ID The Future, CSC senior fellow Dr. John West examines whether or not Darwinian evolution supports a traditional view of morality as is often claimed. In his new book Darwin’s Conservatives, Dr. West addresses how Darwin’s theory, contrary to some of its conservative champions, manifestly does not reinforce the teachings of conservatism. According to West, Darwinism promotes moral relativism rather than traditional morality.Read More ›
