Intelligent Design The Future
Summary: The ID The Future (IDTF) podcast carries on Discovery Institute's mission of exploring the issues central to evolution and intelligent design. IDTF is a short podcast providing you with the most current news and views on evolution and ID. IDTF delivers brief interviews with key scientists and scholars developing the theory of ID, as well as insightful commentary from Discovery Institute senior fellows and staff on the scientific, educational and legal aspects of the debate.
On this episode of ID The Future, Biologic Institute’s Dr. Richard Sternberg explains what a gene is, how it works and how our understanding of genes and DNA has changed over the years. He also discusses the growing number of discoveries that are overturning the notion of junk DNA.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin and Ann Gauger, co-authors of Science & Human Origins, discuss the assumptions behind the Darwinian evolutionist's argument for common ancestry. Are these assumptions valid, or are there too many unknown variables? Dr. Gauger presents the inconsistencies between the Darwinian doctrine of common ancestry and the evidence from population genetics.

On this episode of ID the Future, the CSC's Rob Crowther speaks with Casey Luskin, co-author of the new book Science & Human Origins. There are frequent and spurious claims made in the media that the genetic and fossil evidence of human-ape common ancestry is incontrovertible. In Science and Human Origins, Doug Axe, Ann Gauger, and Casey Luskin seek to equip readers with the knowledge to discern interpretation from fact and rhetoric from evidence. Listen in as Luskin introduces the book and specifically discusses his own assessment of the fossil data.

On this episode of ID the Future, hear Casey Luskin's interview with Issues, Etc., in which he responds to false claims that intelligent design theory is based on religious belief. Casey discusses how many Darwin doubters have found the scientific evidence for Darwinian evolution to be greatly lacking, despite claims of a "scientific consensus" on evolution.
On this episode of ID the Future Casey Luskin continues his interview of Doug Ell on his new book, Counting to God: A Personal Journey Through Science to Belief. Ell discusses the scientific evidence that led him to reject Darwinian evolution in favor of intelligent design.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear more from Dr. Jonathan Wells on his recently published paper, "Membrane Patterns Carry Ontogenetic Information That Is Specified Independently of DNA." Dr. Wells explains how information is carried in the form of a bioelectric code, and how it differs from information in DNA.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear the first in a series of podcasts that takes a critical look at the new Cosmos TV series. Listen in as Casey Luskin examines the stated agenda of Cosmos and its apparent overarching intent to promote a materialist worldview, and also looks at some positives of the show.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with Doug Ell about his book, titled Counting to God: A Personal Journey Through Science to Belief. Ell discusses his personal story about how he lost his faith because of scientific arguments, only to return again to his faith because of the scientific evidence of intelligent design.
On this episode of ID the Future, Jonathan Wells continues his conversation with Casey Luskin about his most recently published peer-reviewed article, "Membrane Patterns Carry Ontogenetic Information That Is Specified Independently of DNA." Listen in as Dr. Wells discusses the "sugar code," a non-DNA form of information that is determined by complex patterns of sugar molecules on membrane surfaces.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with Dr. Jonathan Wells about his newly published article, "Membrane Patterns Carry Ontogenetic Information That Is Specified Independently of DNA." In this first of a series of interviews, Dr. Wells gives an overview of his article, explaining why DNA information in an embryo can only do its job in the context of spatial information that is specified independently of it.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear Stephen Meyer discuss the themes of his New York Times bestseller Darwin's Doubt on The Universe Next Door with Tom Woodward. Dr. Meyer explains the significance of the Cambrian explosion and the fundamental issue of the origin of information, and also talks about new approaches to evolutionary theory in response to the inadequacy of neo-Darwinism.
On this episode of ID the Future, listen in as Casey Luskin talks with Dr. Robert Marks about his paper, "Active Information in Metabiology," that was recently published in Bio-Complexity and critiques the ideas of mathematician Gregory Chaitin. Dr. Marks explains metabiology and the significance of "active information" for intelligent design.
On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer is on The Universe Next Door with host Tom Woodward to discuss the errors of commission and omission in Cosmos, as well as two apparent arguments on the show--that science supports a purely materialistic worldview, and that science and religion are at war. Dr. Meyer also talks about the Cambrian explosion and its evidence for intelligent design.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear more about the BICEP2 Consortium's discovery from physicist Rob Sheldon. Dr. Sheldon explains his questioning of whether the signal detected by BICEP2 was real, and why he thinks the discovery has only a 1 in 10^60 chance of being correct.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with physicist Rob Sheldon about the BICEP2 Consortium's discovery, which is said to be a likely candidate for the Nobel Prize in Physics. Dr. Sheldon explains the BICEP2 discovery and it's impact on questions of cosmic fine-tuning.
