Dennis Prager on the Evolutionist’s Argument for Coercion

On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze interviews celebrated talk show host and author Dennis Prager about his response to the recent claim that man has “evolved to need coercion.” Prager observes that today, Darwinian evolutionary theory has replaced Marxism as the new non-moral standard of explanation for human behavior. The evolutionary framework already permeates social thought on phenomena such as love, religion, and altruism; now, Darwinism provides a naturalistic argument for dictatorship. Tune in to hear Prager’s warnings against evolution-guided social policy.

Philosophy of Cosmology Wrestles with Origins, Fine-Tuning

On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze reports on the views of a group of cosmologists who want to establish a new philosophy of cosmology to tackle the big questions of the universe. What happened after the Big Bang? Was there something before that to cause the existence of the universe? What are bubble universes? Why does our planet seem fine-tuned for the existence of human life? And why is man the only species so far to be intelligent enough to produce technology? Listen in as Boze discusses a new approach to some very old problems.

Dr. Daniel Shechtman: Nobel Prize Winner Who Questioned the Consensus

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze examines the plight of Dr. Daniel Shechtman, recent winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery of quasicrystals, who had previously suffered much rejection and ridicule for threatening the consensus of the scientific establishment. Listen in and consider the parallels between Shechtman’s once-heretical science and the modern-day rejection and scorn of the ID movement.

Multiverse Theory: Avoiding the Evidence of Design in our Universe

Which requires more faith? A belief in multiple universes or a belief in the intelligent design of our universe? On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze explores the ideas found in a Harper’s Magazine article by MIT physicist and author Alan Lightman. Some physicists attempt to side-step the intelligent design implications of our finely-tuned universe by suggesting that ours is merely one of countless universes, each with its own laws and constants.

Lessons from the Controversy over Continental Drift

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and Casey Luskin discuss the lessons that can be learned from the past debate over continental drift. The continental drift controversy was reflective of a distinct pattern in the history of science: new theories that challenge convention are mocked and ridiculed — sometimes for two or three generations — before finally being accepted by the scientific community. The important takeaway lesson is: follow the evidence, not the crowd.

The Problem With Peer-Review

On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze interviews Casey Luskin about the importance of peer-review within the scientific community. The 50th pro-intelligent design paper was recently published, despite the frequent claim by critics that there are no peer-reviewed published papers supporting ID. Although such criticism has been seen to be invalid, it still raises the question — must a scientific theory appear in a peer-reviewed journal in order to be good, legitimate science?

Are Republicans Naturally Disposed to be “Anti-Science”?

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze discusses Chris Mooney’s recent article in The Huffington Post entitled Why Republicans Deny Science: The Quest for a Scientific Explanation. Mooney suggests that Conservatives who reject alarmism on climate change or disagree with any aspect of Darwinian evolution are merely denying reality because of the structure of their brains. Listen in and decide — is the political right’s understanding of science crippled by their predetermined inability to process proven facts, or is there actually room for informed dissent?

Senator Joe Lieberman on Intelligent Design & the “Anti-Science” Label

On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze interviews former vice-presidential candidate Senator Joe Lieberman on seeing the hand of a designer in nature and the label of “anti-science” being attached to those who see evidence of design in nature. Lieberman also relates anecdotes from his recently co-authored book The Gift of Rest with Discovery Institute senior fellow and Evolution News & Views editor David Klinghoffer.
