Jay Richards: The March for Science Misses the Roots of Science

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Director of Communications Rob Crowther interviews CSC Senior Fellow Jay Richards. Listen in as Richards rebuts the warfare thesis – the idea that religion and science are antagonists – and argues that historically, Judeo-Christian culture “was the seedbed from which science emerged.” Has science missed out by being partnered with materialism?

The Best Way to Teach Evolution: Treat It Like Science

What’s the best way to teach evolution? On this episode of ID the Future, Rob Crowther interviews Casey Luskin about his article, “The Constitutionality and Pedagogical Benefits of Teaching Evolution Scientifically,” published in the University of St. Thomas Journal of Law & Public Policy. Luskin shares from his research of the problems facing American science education — how students not inspired to pursue science and not taught how to think like scientists — and the solution of inquiry-based science education.

Human Brain Development as a Symphony

On this episode of ID the Future, hear about a study from scientists at Yale that found that “human brain development is a symphony in three movements.” The human brain develops through distinct patterns in gene activity at different stages in the life span, which these researchers have likened to the choreography of an orchestra or ballet. Listen in!

Intelligent Designs in Nature Make Engineers Envious

On this episode of ID the Future, learn about some of scientists’ latest attempts to copy sophisticated designs found in the natural world. This emerging science of imitating nature, known as biomimetics, has attracted extensive research and led to new technologies. As uniform experience has shown, such good design comes not from blind processes, but from a good mind.
