Author of New Book Tells Why Evolution Simulations … Don’t

On this episode of ID the Future, Ray Bohlin interviews Winston Ewert, Ph.D., co-author with William Dembski and Robert Marks II of the new book, An Introduction to Evolutionary Informatics. Ewert argues that Richard Dawkins’ “Methinks It is Like a Weasel” simulation doesn’t prove biological evolution and isn’t even very interesting. Ewert says there are some interesting computer evolution simulations, but he argues that they fail to model anything biologically realistic.

Jonathan Wells Talks About His New Book, Pt 2 — Zombie Science: More Icons of Evolution

On this episode of ID the Future, Ray Bohlin interviews Jonathan Wells on his recent book, Zombie Science. Listen in as Wells discusses vestigial organs and how textbooks retain incorrect ‘proofs’ for evolution decades after research has shown them false. And what are human tails – and what do they have to do with evolution?

Jonathan Wells Talks About His New Book — Zombie Science: More Icons of Evolution

On this episode of ID the Future, Ray Bohlin interviews Jonathan Wells about Zombie Science. Wells discusses the tree of life, the Miller-Urey experiment, and more. What does Wells mean when he says that the DNA “molecule has been invested with far more power than it actually has”? Listen in to find out!

Discovering Design at a Darwin Day Exhibition

On this episode of ID the Future, hear a clip from Revolutionary and join us as Ray Bohlin talks with Michael Behe about how German paleo-entomologist Günter Bechly became interested in intelligent design. Listen in as Behe explains how it’s important to examine intelligent design for yourself, as Bechly inadvertently did, instead of relying on the the Darwinian establishment’s straw man characterization of intelligent design.

Darwinian Horror Story: Lamarck Back From the Grave

On this episode of ID the Future, Ray Bohlin interviews biologist Cornelius Hunter about the growing problem that epigenetics poses for Neo-Darwinism. Modern evolutionary theory has long insisted that genes and genetic mutations are where the evolutionary action is, and dismissed the early 19th century naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck for suggesting that new environmental pressures could drive heritable changes in a population within a single generation. But as Hunter explains, recent experiments reveal that this does happen and epigenetic sources in the cell are the key drivers. Worse for mainstream evolutionists, this epigenetic machinery is not easily domesticated into the Darwinian agenda of keeping teleology out of the picture.
