New Gene Research: A Single-Couple Human Origin is Possible

On this episode of ID the Future, biologist Ann Gauger talks with host Andrew McDiarmid about new research challenging the common claim that the field of population genetics rules out a single-couple human origin. She and Stockholm University statistical mathematician Ola Hössjer have just published a paper in the journal BIO-Complexity modeling the scenario using a newly developed computer algorithm. The results, Gauger says, show that the genetic data does not rule out Adam and Eve.

Intelligent Design in Prometheus

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze discusses the intelligent design undertones in Prometheus that have many critics riled up. Prometheus, the long-awaited prequel to the classic sci-fi horror film Alien, entertains the idea of the creation of life by questioning the origin of complex information. While the film primarily aims to provide horror thrills and rushes of adrenaline, Prometheus also raises important philosophical and scientific questions about who we are and why we’re here. Warning: this podcast contains a few spoilers, but nothing you couldn’t have gathered from the trailers, clips, and commercials about the film.
