Today’s ID the Future spotlights the richly stimulating new book, God’s Grandeur: The Catholic Case for Intelligent Design. Edited by biologist Ann Gauger, the anthology explores the evidence for intelligent design from a Catholic perspective, with contributions from an impressive range of Catholic scientists, philosophers, and theologians, including Gauger; internationally renowned paleontologist Günter Bechly; philosopher Jay Richards; molecular biologist Michael Behe; Rector of the European University in Rome Fr. Pedro Barrajón, LC; Aquinas and Evolution author Michael Chaberek; philosopher J. Budziszewski; professor of neurosurgery Michael Egnor; and noted Dante scholar Anthony Esolen. Listen in as Gauger gives a quick flyover of the book’s content, tells how she found her way into the intelligent design fold, and explains why Catholics should reject modern evolutionary theory, not only on theological grounds but scientific ones as well. Is it just for Catholics? Gauger says that the vast majority of the theological arguments will resonate with Christians of every stripe, and the parts focused on science and philosophy should resonate with anyone seeking to determine the best, most reasonable explanation for the origin of life, the universe, and the human race.

On this episode of ID the Future, Joshua Youngkin interviews Discovery Institute President Bruce Chapman about the implications of the recent lawsuit between the American Freedom Alliance (AFA) and the California Science Center (CSC). The CSC, a government-run institution, canceled the AFA’s screening of Darwin’s Dilemma in an act of censorship of the intelligent design viewpoint and violation of first amendment rights. Chapman discusses why the CSC’s agreement to pay $110,000 to the AFA is a significant victory for champions of both free speech and free intellectual inquiry.Read More ›

On this episode of ID the Future, mathematician and skeptic David Berlinski explains in a conversation with Discovery President Bruce Chapman where he draws the line with the new atheists.
There is a clear difference between a thoughtful secular Jew such as Dr. Berlinski and the new atheists such as Richard Dawkins. One is a truly cautious skeptic — the other maintains his dogmatic belief in Science, with a capital S. Nowhere is this illustrated more clearly than in Dr. Berlinski’s book, The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions, where he examines the issues that science claims to have solved.Read More ›
