The Designed Body: Our Irreducibly Complex Blood Pressure Control System

Physician Howard Glicksman talks with host Ray Bohlin about the amazing control systems involved in something we’re all familiar with: blood pressure in this classic ID the Future episode. It’s a system requiring adjustment at every point along the way, from blood volume to blood pumping velocity to pressure out in the blood vessels. And it has to be able to act fast in order to keep us alive — which leads to some hard questions for Mr. Darwin.

A Doctor Examines How the Body Meets Its Need for Oxygen

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Ray Bohlin interviews physician Howard Glicksman about hemoglobin and the body’s need to have enough of it to transport sufficient oxygen to the tissues. Finely-tuned and exquisitely engineered, this system gave our ancestors enough oxygen to not only stay alive but thrive in the face of hostile challenges. Dr. Glicksman is author of an extended series of posts at Evolution News & Science Today, “The Designed Body.”

A Doctor Examines Some Intricate Control Systems Sustaining Your Life Right Now

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Ray Bohlin interviews Physician Howard Glicksman about a common cause of death, cardio-pulmonary arrest, using the subject as a doorway to explore some intricate, interdependent control systems that sustains life. Dr. Glicksman is a medical doctor and author of an extended series of posts at Evolution News, “The Designed Body.”

Michael Egnor: Experiments Show that Mind is More Than Brain

On this episode of ID The Future from the vault, host Ray Bohlin talks with Michael Egnor, a pediatric neurosurgeon and professor of neurosurgery at State University of New York Stony Brook about ways modern science validates the idea that the mind is not reducible to the brain. They delve into oddities of neuroscience that indicate that there is more going on in the brain than mere chemistry, and, in particular, walk through the seminal work of Adrian Owen on MRIs and what it reveals.

Jonathan Wells: Why Not Darwinian Medicine?

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Ray Bohlin interviews Jonathan Wells about the interaction of evolutionary theory and medicine. Has Darwinism furthered healthcare? What about our understanding of antibiotic resistance? And might learning about evolution become a requirement for medical students?

Michael Behe, Revolutionary, Polar Bears and Evolution by Breaking Things

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Ray Bohlin and Michael Behe discuss the limits of evolution. Does evolution innovative by building things, or does it only innovate by breaking things? Behe demonstrates the surprising answer with a closer look at polar bears. Behe is the subject of an engaging science documentary now available online: Revolutionary. His new book, Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution is available on Amazon.
