Nancy Pearcey on the Politics of Darwinism, Then and Now

Some suggest that we keep Darwinian evolution and just trust that God is at work behind the scenes. Pearcey says the effect, then and now, is to render our understanding of God as something that is largely private and subjective. Read More ›

Why Popular Ideas about Human-Chimp Comparisons Are Misleading or Wrong

On this episode of ID the Future, biologist Ann Gauger discusses the popular science myth that human DNA is only 1% different from that of chimps. Dr. Gauger shows why this common claim is false, looking at genomic evidence as well as large-scale differences between humans and chimps. Ann Gauger is a senior research scientist at Biologic Institute. Her work uses molecular genetics and genomic engineering to study the origin, organization and operation of metabolic pathways. Her research has been published in Nature, Development, and the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

Testing Evolution in the Lab With Biologic Institute’s Ann Gauger

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Director of Research Jay Richards interviews Ann Gauger, senior research scientist at Biologic Institute, on a new article she and Dr. Ralph Seelke have in the peer-reviewed journal BIO-Complexity. Working with her co-authors, Dr. Gauger experimentally tested two-step adaptive paths that should have been within easy reach for bacterial populations. Listen in and learn what Dr. Gauger was surprised to find as she discusses the implications of these experiments for Darwinian evolution.
