Hitler & Darwin, pt. 2: Richard Weikart on Evolutionary Ethics

On this episode of ID The Future, the second of two in this series, host David Boze continues a discussion with Discovery Institute fellow Dr. Richard Weikart, author of two books exploring the links between Darwinian theory and Nazism. On this podcast, Weikart talks about the moral and logical challenges involving evolutionary ethics. Is morality simply “an illusion fobbed off on us by our genes to get us to cooperate”, as biologists Michael Ruse and E. L. Wilson suggest? What did Darwin believe about morality? Is there an objective morality, or is it relative and evolving even today? Listen as Weikart builds a compelling case against evolutionary ethics and recent criticism of his books. Weikart is the author of two Read More ›

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab Goes to Trial in Anti-ID Discrimination Case

On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze interviews Joshua Youngkin, a legal affairs analyst at the Discovery Institute, about new developments in the case of David Coppedge, a former employee of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, who was demoted and later fired for discussing intelligent design. Youngkin provides background on Coppedge’s tenure at JPL and gives insight into the legal basis for the discrimination lawsuit that will now go before a jury trial. “This is a case that comes under the Fair Employment and Housing Act. It bars employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of their viewpoint…” Make your voice heard!

Darwin on Trial 20th Anniversary: Darwinian Evolution’s “Wrecking Ball”

On this episode of ID The Future, Host David Boze kicks off the celebration by setting the stage. He first takes us back to 1925, where Darwinian evolution seemingly won the day in the infamous Scopes Trial. Fast forward to 1991. Evolutionary theory is back on trial. Harvard graduate and University of California at Berkeley law professor Phillip Johnson publishes Darwin on Trial. The controversial book questions how much we really know about the supposedly unchallengeable theory of evolution and inspires other critics of the theory to explore it’s limits and press the argument further. Tune in to hear comments about the impact of Darwin on Trial from Dr. Stephen Meyer, director of the Center for Science & Culture at the Discovery Institute.

An Ocean Apart: New Fossils Challenge Common Ancestry

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze interviews Casey Luskin about recently discovered fossils that have inspired Darwinists to develop wild and speculative explanations.

Fossils of the Hoatzin bird have previously been found exclusively in South America, but were recently uncovered in Africa — clear on the other side of the Atlantic. As Darwinists struggle to fit the discovery of these fossils into their doctrine of common descent, it becomes apparent that regardless of what new evidence suggests, they will refuse to allow common ancestry to be challenged. Listen in as Boze and Luskin reveal the tendency of Darwinists to pursue PR campaigns rather than scientific inquiry.

“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?

The term is being bandied about, not just in science journals and newspapers, but in the political arena as well, as typified by the recent comments of Utah governor Jon Huntsman: “The minute that the Republican party becomes the anti-science party, we have a huge problem. We lose a whole lot of people that would otherwise allow us to win the election in 2012. When we take a position that isn’t willing to embrace evolution, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science and therefore in a losing position.”

Tune in to unpack this curious term and learn how it is shaping current debates.
