David Berlinski & Michael Denton: Primary Objections to Neo-Darwinism

On this episode of ID The Future, Discovery Institute senior fellows David Berlinski and Michael Denton, both long-time critics of neo-Darwinism, discuss their primary objections to neo-Darwinian theory. For Berlinski, a mathematician and author of 1, 2, 3: Absolutely Elementary Mathematics, the problem is quantitative and methodological. For Denton, a scientist and author of Nature’s Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe, the problem is empirical. Don’t miss this engaging discussion!

Michael Denton: Remarkable Coincidences in Photosynthesis

On this episode of ID the Future, we listen in on a a few minutes from a lecture given by CSC Senior Fellow Michael Denton. We’ve all heard of the importance of photosynthesis as an oxygen creating process. In this segment, Denton explains the “remarkable set of coincidences” which makes the creation of oxygen through photosynthesis possible. From the specific energy of visible light to the unique properties of water, this degree of improbability screams DESIGN.

Dr. Michael Denton: Paradigm Shifts, pt. 1

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey sits down with Senior Fellow Dr. Michael Denton for a discussion of paradigm shifts in science. Dr. Denton reflects on paradigm shifts that he’s witnessed in his lifetime and how his own thinking has changed over the years, and also looks at how these shifts challenge Darwinian evolution in new ways.

Michael Denton on the Coming Downfall of the Mechanistic View in Cell Biology

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Michael Denton discusses why he foresees the downfall of the mechanistic view in cell biology and the exhaustion of materialist researches into the origin of life. Conversely, Denton finds validity in Stephen Meyer’s The Signature in the Cell, and in the proposition that intelligence was at work in the origin of life, and well before.

Dr. Michael Denton on Evidence of Fine-Tuning in the Universe

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin sits down with Dr. Michael Denton, a Senior Fellow of the CSC who holds a Ph.D. in Biochemistry. Denton is the author of Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, which has been credited with influencing both Phillip Johnson and Michael Behe, as well as Nature’s Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe, which elaborates on the evidence of design in nature. Luksin and Denton discuss the ways in which the universe is uniquely fit for carbon-based life, and perhaps even human life. Denton argues that when it comes to evidence of fine-tuning in the universe, the more you look, the more you find. Tune in to discover what Read More ›

Berlinski & Denton, pt. 4: Envisioning a Post-Darwinian Science

On this episode of ID The Future, mathematician David Berlinski and biochemist Michael Denton discuss what a post-Darwinian future will look like as it relates to mathematics and biology. Berlinski explores the timelessness of numbers, while Denton expounds on his compelling top-down view of biology.

Berlinski & Denton, pt. 3: Top-Down versus Bottom-Up Worldview

On this episode of ID The Future, mathematician David Berlinski joins biochemist Michael Denton for continued discussion on the difficulties of Darwinian evolution to be a viable modern theory of the origin and development of life and the cosmos. On this episode, Berlinski explains why many conservative intellectuals have trouble doubting Darwin. Denton suggests that the mechanistic, Darwinian framework will eventually collapse, and reviews the essential differences in worldview between the Darwin supporter and the Darwin doubter. Tune in to the final episode of this stimulating exchange!
