The God Solution – Pt 3

On this third episode of ID the Future, Nate Herbst of The God Solution and Casey Luskin discuss the commitment of intelligent design to “follow the evidence wherever it leads.” While evolutionists have pointed to so-called junk DNA as evidence against intelligent design, Luskin shares about recent findings that it plays critical roles in the cell.

The Top 10 Problems with Darwinian Evolution, pt. 10

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues his series discussing the top 10 problems with biological and chemical evolution. This series is based upon Casey Luskin’s chapter in the volume More than Myth, edited by Paul Brown and Robert Stackpole (Chartwell Press, 2014). In this segment, Casey discusses the tenth problem: how neo-Darwinism has a long history of inaccurate predictions about vestigial organs and “junk DNA.”

On Human Origins: Is Our Genome Full of Junk DNA? Pt 5

On this episode of ID the Future, biologist Richard Sternberg continues with the fifth 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. 1

On this episode of ID the Future, hear the first part of a talk that Casey Luskin recently gave on the latest findings in molecular biology. Casey Luskin discusses the non-coding DNA that control a huge of the cellular processes, and what we still don’t know about the genome. Listen in!

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.

ENCODE Project Finds Mass Functionality for “Junk” DNA

On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and Casey Luskin discuss the recent findings of the ENCODE Project, which has declared so-called “junk” DNA to be anything but. Much of the DNA that was previously supposed to be useless genetic material left over from random mutations that have been acted upon by natural selection, have now been found to perform several vital functions — just as intelligent design proponents have been predicting for years. What does this mean for intelligent design, and for Darwinian evolution?

So-Called “Junk”-DNA Betrays Darwinian Predictions

Evolutionists have long cited pseudogenes as a type of “junk” DNA that demonstrates an unguided evolutionary origin of the genome, but what if this Darwinian mindset is setting us up to miss important biological functions of pseudogenes? On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses how the research shows that pseudogenes are increasingly found to have function.
