On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid interviews Eric Anderson, one of the co-authors of the new book Evolution and Intelligent Design in a Nutshell. The two discuss Eric’s chapters on the origin-of-life problem. There’s the problem of generating the information required of the first life form. And there’s another problem, one Anderson uses his engineering background to explore — the insuperable challenges to generating a self-replicating molecule, a hypothetical entity at the heart of some recent attempts to render plausible the evolution of non-life into cellular life.
On this episode of ID the Future, bestselling author and Center for Science and Culture director Stephen Meyer introduces an exciting and informative new Discovery U video course, “Stephen Meyer Investigates Scientific Evidence for Intelligent Design.” Here he sets the stage by recalling a few times when ID made national news headlines, sometimes with Meyer right in the middle of the controversy. He also addresses some of the questions generated by these dustups: Is ID faith-based or science-based? Did the earliest scientists follow ID principles or did they avoid them, as one state education commissioner claimed. And why did two highly regarded research scientists get expelled from their museum positions, and were the expulsions justified?
On this episode of ID: The Future, CSC Fellow Jonathan Witt explains how Intelligent Design is testable, contrary to the objections of critics. He discusses predictions from biology and astrobiology, and points listeners to an extended list of testable ID predictions available online.
Dr. Stephen Meyer’s Signature in the Cell gave a ground-breaking inquiry into the mystery of the origin of life. Now, in Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design, Dr. Meyer presents new scientific evidence that challenges the Darwinian account of the development of animal life and points toward the reality of intelligent design.Read More ›
On today’s program, Dr. Michael Denton discusses why he foresees the downfall of the mechanistic view, at least in cell biology, and the exhaustion of materialist researches into the origin of life. Conversely, Denton finds validity in Stephen Meyer’s The Signature in the Cell, and in the proposition that intelligence was at work in the origin of life, and well before.Read More ›
On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze interviews CSC Director, Dr. Stephen Meyer about his recent trip to London and new ID developments in the UK. Additionally, they discuss how well Meyer’s book Signature in the Cell is holding up to the latest scientific research.
This episode of ID the Future features an excerpt from an interview on the Albert Mohler program featuring CSC Director Stephen Meyer, author of the recent book, Signature in the Cell. Was there intelligent design in the recent experiments on artificial life? Listen in as Meyer discusses the science behind the latest headlines.Read More ›
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin responds to Calvin College biology professor Steve Matheson’s critique of Signature in the Cell. What would you get if you crossed a snarky pro-evolution blog like Panda’s Thumb with a passionate defender of theistic evolution? You might get Steve Matheson’s critique of Stephen Meyer’s book. Listen in as Luskin explains how Matheson’s frequent personal attacks on Meyer, mixed with exposés of occasional typos and the possible discovery of one minor error, make for a weak argument against intelligent design. You can read Casey Luskin’s entire response to Steve Matheson in Signature of Controversy, the free digital book you can download here.
This episode of ID the Future features the recent interaction between Stephen Meyer and one of his critics, Steve Matheson, who were recently at Biola University to discuss Dr. Meyer’s book, Signature in the Cell. At one point in the exchange, Dr. Matheson, a theistic evolutionist, explains why he does not come to the same conclusions Dr. Meyer does.Read More ›
