On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Jonathan Wells discusses a popular claim, which he describes as “DNA makes RNA makes protein makes us”—or, every organism contains a program for itself in its DNA. Though this view fits neatly with the perspective of Darwinian evolution, it has been shown to be incorrect at every step. Listen in as Dr. Wells explains.
On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid talks with biologist Ann Gauger about the ability of biology to continually surprise us — even when we think the science is settled. Dr. Gauger discusses some scientific “facts” that have since been disproved, and also reflects on her own experiences as a student, and later as a researcher, as she has realized that life is much more sophisticated than we could have imagined.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Jonathan Wells about a recent article that claims that the human genome is full of useless, non-functional DNA. Dr. Wells explains the concept of “junk DNA,” and why there is such a stark disagreement between those who say our genome is at least 80% functional, and those who say it’s only 8.2% — and how we can know who to listen to.Read More ›
On this episode of ID the Future, Educational Outreach Coordinator Janine Dixon talks with Casey Luskin about the new intelligent design curriculum, Discovering Intelligent Design. Developed by Luskin and home school educators Gary and Hallie Kemper, Discovering Intelligent Design presents the scientific evidence for intelligent design in both cosmology and biology.Read More ›
On this episode of ID The Future, Dr. Michael Denton discusses the higher order (emergent) properties of the red blood cell, which he explains is an example of a living system that can’t be built gradually with a Darwinian process like natural selection. Biology, says Denton, is an exciting arena. Within it, you can witness the laws of form and the exquisite patterns of nature that reveal an intelligence at work in the design of the universe.Read More ›
