Doug Axe: Lignin & the Coherent Design of the Ecosystem

This episode of ID the Future features part of a lecture given by Biologic Institute scientist Doug Axe on his recent research on the molecule lignin. Lignin provides a paradoxical case for the Darwinian method of evolution, but fits perfectly into a design oriented scientific paradigm. Thirty percent of non-fossil organic carbon on the planet is lignin, so in a Darwinian world, something should have developed the ability to consume lignin — but it hasn’t. Lignin binds together and protects plant cellulose, which is vital to all types of large plant life; “The peculiar properties of lignin therefore make perfect sense when seen as part of a coherent design for the entire ecosystem of our planet.”

Science & Human Origins: Interview With Dr. Douglas Axe

On this episode of ID the Future, Biologic Institute director Dr. Douglas Axe discusses his contribution to the new book Science and Human Origins. How efficient is the Darwinian mechanism at inventing new things? Could it really be responsible for the development of human beings, as Darwinists claim? Axe reviews his recent studies on mutation rates and the ability of Darwinian evolution to create new proteins. Tune in and discover what he found out!

Key Figures in Intelligent Design Measure the Impact of Discovery Institute

On this special year-end episode of ID The Future, David Boze celebrates the impact of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture in supporting scientific research and defending academic freedom for scientists, scholars, and others in the intelligent design movement. Boze interviews astronomer Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez, Biologic Institute director Dr. Douglas Axe, and author and Discovery Institute senior fellow Dr. David Berlinski.

ID Scientist Douglas Axe Responds to His Critics

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Biologic Institute Director Douglas Axe about his response to critics of his peer-reviewed paper in Journal of Molecular Biology. Critics such as Arthur Hunt and Steve Matheson, have argued that Dr. Axe’s paper should not be seen as supporting intelligent design. Of course, the author of the paper in question should be trusted to have the best perspective on the subject. Tune in and hear what Dr. Axe has to say as he corrects the misconceptions for us.
