On Human Origins: Is Our Genome Full of Junk DNA? Pt 3

On this episode of ID the Future, biologist Richard Sternberg continues with the third part of his presentation of evidence that refutes the myth that the human genome is full of junk DNA. This is the second in a series from a recent Science and Human Origins conference featuring Dr. Sternberg, John West, Ann Gauger and Casey Luskin.

How the Latest Findings in Molecular Biology Support Intelligent Design, pt. 2

On this episode of ID the Future hear part 2 of Casey Luskin’s talk on the latest findings in microbiology and how they impact the debate over intelligent design and Darwinian evolution (find part 1 of his talk here). Casey discusses the current information age of biology, and how only intelligent design can make sense of the latest discoveries.

Dr. Jonathan Wells: Biology’s Quiet Revolution

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.

Dr. Ann Gauger: Biology Still Surprises Us

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.

Dr. Jonathan Wells: How Much of the Human Genome is Functional?

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.

New ID Curriculum: Discovering Intelligent Design

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.

Dr. Michael Denton on the Emergent Properties of Cells

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.
