Global Warming Dissenters: Same Attacks, Different Issue

On this episode of ID The Future, we explore how attacks on skeptics of man-made global warming are similar to those against proponents of intelligent design. Host David Boze talks with Casey Luskin about recent examples of these attacks, why they are happening, and how to handle them. Says Luskin: “Academic freedom for dissenters from global warming and dissenters from Darwinian evolution are being marginalized and, in some cases, being censored in many of the same ways.” Tune in to learn more about this interesting development!

What is Speciation?

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze interviews Casey Luskin about a 2012 study published in Nature that claimed that scientists can predict the number of species that will develop within a clade. Such forecasts of speciation are based on the amount of living space available and the prominence of sexually selected traits. However, many of the differences between “species” are quite trivial; what constitutes one species as separate from another when there are no fundamental distinctions?

Dr. Cornelius Hunter: Evidence Against Darwinian Evolution in the Hammerhead Shark

On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze interviews Dr. Cornelius Hunter about serveral lines of evidence against Darwinian evolution found in the hammerhead shark. The unique design of the hammerhead’s aerodynamic head, or cephalofoil, includes electromagnetic tracking of prey and binocular vision. Although new research reported in Science Daily gratuitously presents these unique features as a product of unguided evolution, the Darwinian framework fails to offer any insight into how they might have arisen.

Dr. Daniel Shechtman: The Nobel Prize Winner Who Dared to Question the Consensus

On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze examines the plight of Dr. Daniel Shechtman, recent winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry who once 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 recent 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.

Intelligent Design and Superman: Lessons from the New Movie “Man of Steel”

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and CSC Senior Fellow Dr. Jonathan Wells discuss the connections to intelligent design in the new movie Man of Steel. While the story of Superman may be fantasy, it centers on real scientific matters such as genetic manipulation and information storage inside the cell.

“Anti-Science”: Unpacking a Distorted Label, pt. 2

On this episode of ID The Future, we return to the topic of the anti-science label and how opponents of intelligent design try to stifle the debate by using this unscientific term. Tune in to hear host David Boze review some of the latest examples of this tactic, including a recent article in New Scientist warning of unscientific America and its “dangerous retreat from reason.” Boze also reviews definitions of science, just to be clear on what science is and what it isn’t.

“Anti-Science”: Unpacking a Vague & Distorted Label

On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze discusses the ambiguous label “anti-science”. What does it mean? What are the implications? Who’s using it? Tune in to unpack this curious term and learn how it is shaping current debates.

Dr. Ben Carson on Rejecting Darwinian Evolution

On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze speaks with Dr. Ben Carson, renowned pediatric neurosurgeon and Darwin doubter. Dr. Carson was invited to deliver the 2012 commencement speech at Emory University. Unfortunately, upon uncovering his non-allegiance to Darwinian ideology, 500 faculty members and students alike signed a letter in protest of his welcome. Listen in to hear Dr. Carson discuss this ill treatment and why his acute knowledge of the brain has led him to reject Darwinism.

Paper Lays to Rest “Vernanimalcula,” Supposed Precambrian Ancestor of Bilaterian Animals

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze talks with Casey Luskin about the Precambrian fossil Vernanimalcula, which was thought to be the proof that Darwinists needed to refute the idea of the Cambrian explosion — the idea that life exploded in complexity during a specific period of time. Vernanimalcula was thought to be the Precambrian ancestor of all bilaterian animals, dating back to tens of millions of years prior to the Cambrian explosion. However, a new article published in Evolution & Development has concluded that “There is no evidential basis for interpreting Vernanimalcula as an animal, let alone a bilaterian.”
