C.S. Lewis & Science: An Interview With Dr. John West, Part 4

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and Dr. John West conclude their conversation on The Magician’s Twin: C. S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society. They discuss Lewis’ views on the limitations of science and the need for moral restraints; what Lewis meant by “men without chests”; and what kind of call-to-action should come from reading C. S. Lewis.

ENCODE Project Finds Mass Functionality for “Junk” DNA

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and Casey Luskin discuss the recent findings of the ENCODE Project, which has declared so-called “junk” DNA to be anything but. Much of the DNA that was previously supposed to be useless genetic material left over from random mutations that have been acted upon by natural selection, have now been found to perform several vital functions — just as intelligent design proponents have been predicting for years. What does this mean for intelligent design, and for Darwinian evolution?

What is Speciation?

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze interviews Casey Luskin about a recent 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?

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 ridiculted–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.

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.

Intelligent Design in Prometheus

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze discusses the intelligent design undertones in Prometheus that have many critics riled up. Prometheus, the long-awaited prequel to the classic sci-fi horror film Alien, entertains the idea of the creation of life by questioning the origin of complex information. While the film primarily aims to provide horror thrills and rushes of adrenaline, Prometheus also raises important philosophical and scientific questions about who we are and why we’re here. Warning: this podcast contains a few spoilers, but nothing you couldn’t have gathered from the trailers, clips, and commercials about the film.
