On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer and Michael Medved discuss materialism and how it effects our constitution. Not in the sense of buying more ‘stuff’ but instead the particular conception of human nature. The idea of free will, that we are capable of self-governance is under attack. The forced theory that life is the product of an unguided, undirected process implies we don’t have free will. That law and morality is still evolving indicates the need to constantly update our constitution placing the document under threat as never before.Read More ›
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses the new effort of the next generation science standards. The policy intends to establish a national science standard, eliminating the ability to question Darwinian evolution. Leading science education theorists recognize that the best way to learn is to debate the evidence both for and against a particular concept. A great way to learn about credible perspectives other than Darwinism is to look at the newly released multimedia curriculum Discovering ID, which is designed for educational use by home schools and private schools.

But today, as we’ve seen in recent threats to academic freedom, it’s Darwin’s defenders who seek legal means to silence doubters in the classroom. Listen in!
