Controversy or Hypocrisy? Science Standards, Textbooks, and Texas

On this episode of ID the Future, Anika Smith interviews Casey Luskin about the controversy over science standards currently brewing in Texas. Why is a group of Darwinists up in arms about the experts selected to review the state’s science standards? Luskin exposes the truth behind the Darwinists’ claims and finds more than a little hypocrisy in their attacks on textbook authors Stephen Meyer and Ralph Seelke.

The Limits to Biological Change: An Interview with Ray Bohlin

In this episode of ID the Future, CSC’s Anika Smith interviews CSC Fellow Ray Bohlin. Ray Bohlin earned his Ph.D. in molecular and cell biology from the University of Texas at Dallas and is the current Presidents of Probe Ministries. During his academic studies Bohlin developed doubts about evolution that he then explored in his book, The Natural Limits to Biological Change written in 1984. Listen as he explains his skepticism of evolution and offers advice for emerging scientific doubters of Darwin.

Science Lab Explores New Intelligent Design Research

On this Episode of ID the Future, Anika Smith reports on the CSC-supported, independent research facility, Biologic Institute. Headed by Dr. Douglas Axe, Biologic’s purpose is to scientifically put the claims of Neo-Darwinian evolution and intelligent design to the test in a laboratory setting. Work is already well under way, with Discovery Institute Fellows conducting biological studies to test each theory’s assumptions from an unapologetically ID frame of reference. This should prove to be a huge addition to the cause of intelligent design.

A Critical Look at the National Academy of Sciences Report on Evolution

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC policy analyst Anika Smith takes a critical look at the National Academy of Sciences report on evolution, published last week. The report, titled “Science, Evolution, and Creationism,” manages to celebrate evolution as an unassailable truth, completely misrepresent intelligent design, and rehash the same standard Darwinist arguments which have been refuted by critical scientists time and again.

Is the Brain Just an Illusion?

On this episode of ID The Future CSC’s Anika Smith interviews science writer Denyse O’Leary about her new book, The Spiritual Brain. In the book O’Leary and her co-author Mario Beaurogard, neuroscientist and Associate Professor at Université de Montréal, explore the question of whether or not the mind is an illusion as materialists believe, or is it more than that? For instance, The Spiritual Brain looks at whether religious experiences come from God, or are they merely the random firing of neurons in the brain? Drawing on his own research with Carmelite nuns, Beauregard shows that genuine, life-changing spiritual events can be documented. He and O’Leary offer compelling evidence that mind creates matter rather than matter creating mind.
