New Video Shows DNA Evidence for Intelligent Design

Animation Gives Unique Look Inside the Cell

A new video, Journey Inside The Cell, launched today at www.SignatureInTheCell.com dramatically illustrates the evidence for intelligent design within DNA, as described in Stephen C. Meyer’s book, Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne 2009).

Darwin Day Lecture: Proselytizing for Darwin’s God in the Classroom

For years supporters of Darwin’s theory claimed to oppose teaching religion in the nation’s science classrooms. But just in time for Darwin Day 2008, leading evolution proponents including the National Academy of Sciences, the Public Broadcasting Service, and the National Center for Science Education have been cynically promoting religious instruction in schools as a way of defusing opposition to Darwinian evolution. Dr. John West, author of Darwin Day in America, discusses Darwinists’ latest efforts to insert religion into the classroom. This event was filmed in front of a live audience on Feb. 6th, 2008 for broadcast on the web as part of the ID the Future Darwin Day broadcast on February 12th.

Who Designed the Designer?

On this episode of ID The Future we have a short clip of Dr. Jay Richards, discussing the question who designed the designer?

Critics of intelligent design theory often throw this question out thinking to highlight a weakness in ID. Richards shows that the theory’s inability to identify the designer is not a weakness, but a strength. ID does not identify the designer is because ID limits its claims to those which can be established by empirical evidence. As CSC Senior Fellow Dr. Michael Behe puts it: ” [A] scientific argument for design in biology does not reach that far. Thus while I argue for design, the question of the identity of the designer is left open.”

The Truth about Haeckel’s Embryos

Showtime Networks will air filmmaker Randy Olson’s fanciful evolution film Flock of Dodos this week, apparently not realizing that key parts of the film are so wildly inaccurate that they amount to a hoax. One of the film’s worst errors is its claim that modern biology textbooks have not used illustrations derived from Ernst Haeckel’s fraudulent 19th century embryo drawings as evidence for evolution. On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin shares a clip from the film Icons of Evolution which debunks one of the biggest myths in Dodos by explaining how, contrary to Olson’s film, these bogus drawings that misstate the evidence for evolution have been endlessly recycled in modern textbooks.

Does Darwinism Lead to Moral Relativism?

On this video episode of ID The Future, CSC senior fellow Dr. John West examines whether or not Darwinian evolution supports a traditional view of morality as is often claimed. In his new book Darwin’s Conservatives, Dr. West addresses how Darwin’s theory, contrary to some of its conservative champions, manifestly does not reinforce the teachings of conservatism. According to West, Darwinism promotes moral relativism rather than traditional morality.
