Dr. Michael Egnor’s Brain Hypothesis

On this episode of ID the Future, Logan Gage interviews professor of neurosurgery at SUNY, Stony Brook Michael Egnor. Dr. Egnor discusses his current research into cerebral blood flow and the buffering of the brain from the force of blood pumped by the heart. Dr. Egnor’s approach to this problem is that of an engineer, using the design inference to understand how the brain protects itself from the pulsatility of the arterial blood flow of the heart.

Does Darwinism Have Any Impact on Modern Medical Science?

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin takes a look at the medical field and how it relates to Darwinism. Is Darwinian evolutionary theory a big part of how doctors think and the way they practice medicine?. According to Professor of Neurosurgery, Dr. Michael Egnor, the answer is no. The modern practice of medicine does not rely at all on neo-Darwinism. In the past, especially in the early 20th century, explains Egnor, the medical field did get a large dose of Darwinism, most noticeably in the area of eugenics. Egnor goes on to show that there has been, however, no contribution by applying Darwinian evolutionary theory to modern medicine or medical research aside from eugenics.

How Does a Brain Surgeon Become a Darwin Skeptic?

On this episode of ID The Future Dr. Michael Egnor, professor of neurosurgery and pediatrics at State University of New York, Stony Brook, tells his story of how he became a full-blown skeptic of Darwinian evolution. Dr. Egnor explains how he originally had internal doubt about the ability of Darwinism to produce new biological information. These doubts were then brought directly to the surface when he read books by leading ID-theorists like William Dembski and Michael Behe.

Asking Hard Questions about Darwinian Evolution

On this episode of ID the Future, professor of neurosurgery Michael Egnor shares his experience asking hard questions to prominent Darwinists on their blogs. An experience which began with a simple question to TIME magazine’s Michael Lemonick soon showed how the problem with the current debate is that only ID proponents are asking how biological complexity arose. Dr. Egnor’s insights into the search for scientific truth challenges Darwinism and those who defend the theory without engaging with his questions.
