This episode of ID The Future features an interview with biologist Dr. Jonathan Wells about Darwin’s tree of life. This is an icon of evolution, showing all living things advancing from a single common ancestor. Dr. Wells argues that the evidence of the fossil record turns Darwin’s tree upside down.Read More ›
On this episode of ID The Future, CSC Fellow Dr. Jonathan Wells explains what he believes is Darwin’s ultimate missing link. According to Darwin’s theory, all species are descended from the same first species. To this day there has never been an observed instance of one species changing into another – the ultimate missing link.Read More ›
On this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin interviews CSC biologist Dr. Jonathan Wells about the intersection of science and religion, and the incompatibility of Darwinian evolution with religion. In his book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design, Wells deals with Darwinism’s war on traditional Christianity. According to Wells there is no inherent conflict between science and religion, and there is no conflict between evolution and religion when evolution is defined as simple change over time. The conflict is between Darwinian evolution, the idea that the origin of all living things are descended from a common ancestor by unguided, undirected processes such as random mutation acting on natural selection. Wells explains how this idea does not fit with traditional Christianity.
On this episode of ID The Future, Seth Cooper reviews Carson Holloway’s recent book, “The Right Darwin: Evolution, Religion and the Future of Democracy” in which Holloway demonstrates the inability of neo-Darwinian theory to undergird the moral framework that is essential to a liberal democracy’s survival.
On this episode of ID The Future, CSC’s Robert Crowther interviews Dr. Jonathan Wells about the continued use of faked drawings as evidence for Darwinian evolution in textbooks in use in schools today.Read More ›
This week on ID The Future podcast, CSC associate director John West reports on the efforts of the Ohio State Board of Education to adopt a proposed “Framework for Teaching Controversial Issues.”
Darwinists are complaining — predictably — that the framework represents another nefarious plot “to orchestrate a religiously motivated attack on the theory of evolution.”Read More ›
On this episode the CSC’s Logan Gage provides an insightful review into Dr. Francis Collins’ recent book, The Language of God. According to Gage, Collins gives an excellent overview of design in physics and cosmology. Yet, when it comes to biology, Collins gets hung up on a common misperception about ID in biology, namely that it is an argument from ignorance. Gage shows how Collins’ view of design in cosmology is at odds with his dismissal of the possibility of design in biology.Read More ›
On this episode of the ID The Future podcast Casey Luskin looks at what evolution has given us. Recently some mainstream scientists have been discussing what practical benefits Darwinian evolution holds for society? Surprisingly, they see little practical applications for Darwinian evolution, going so far as to admit that “evolution hasn’t yielded many practical or commercial benefits.” Last year, National Academy of Sciences member Phillip Skell made the observation last year that Darwinism is not the foundation of all biological research, and indeed exerts little influence in much of the research being done today.
On this episode of ID The Future podcast, Casey Luskin interviews CSC senior fellow Jonathan Wells, who explains that Lysenkoism, where the core element is the use of government positions to deprive critics of their jobs, is alive in well in the American sciences today.Read More ›
Ten years ago, biochemist Michael Behe helped to launch the modern intelligent design movement. when he outlined the theory of irreducible complexity in his book Darwin’s Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, which dared to question the basic tenets of Darwinism.
Arguing that unintelligent accounts failed to explain the development of irreducibly complex systems such as blood clotting, the human immune system and the bacterial flagellum, Darwin’s Black Box was internationally reviewed in over one hundred publications and named one of the 100 most important books of the 20th century by National Review and World magazine. There are now a quarter million copies in print.Read More ›
