 The ID Underground and Related Reflections | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 902

On this episode of ID the Future, host Sarah Chaffee talks with Center for Science and Culture Research Coordinator Brian Miller about the growing ID underground, based on his recent Evolution News article on the subject. As many as one-quarter of Harvard post-docs in relevant fields privately express sympathy for ID. More and more scientists who don’t agree with ID are at least standing up against common “sound-bite” misrepresentations. Compared to other major paradigm shifts in science history, ID is right on track. Please consider donating to support the IDTF Podcast: idthefuture.org/donate.

 C.S. Lewis & Science: An Interview With Dr. John West, Part 4 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 602

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, David Boze and Dr. John West conclude their conversation on The Magician’s Twin: C. S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society. They discuss Lewis’ views on the limitations of science and the need for moral restraints; what Lewis meant by “men without chests”; and what kind of call-to-action should come from reading C. S. Lewis. Please consider donating to support the IDTF Podcast: idthefuture.org/donate.

 Nancy Pearcey on Darwin and Huxley: Philosophy, Not Evidence, Drove Them to Their Conclusions | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 803

On this episode of ID the Future, Nancy Pearcey returns to explain what historians know, but few of the rest of us do: Charles Darwin’s science grew out of his naturalistic philosophy, not the other way around. One historian said Darwin’s naturalism came first, and “only later did he find a theory to validate his convictions.” His “bulldog”, T.H. Huxley, like Darwinism more for its philosophy than its science. And even Darwin admitted the evidence wasn’t all it could or should be.

 Melissa Cain Travis Talks Science and the Mind of the Maker | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1069

On this episode of ID the Future, Sarah Chaffee interviews author and science historian Melissa Cain Travis on her new book Science and the Mind of the Maker: What the Conversation Between Faith and Science Reveals About God. From Johannes Kepler to Max Planck, scientists have seen their work as much more than merely uncovering how things work; it’s a way of forging new insights into a greater reality. This book is a layman’s introduction into the world of their work, as well as a snapshot of the current state of intelligent design research.

 Nancy Pearcey Answers the Charge, “You Guys Lost” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 912

On this episode of ID the Future, author and Center for Science and Culture fellow Nancy Pearcey responds to the claim that the design-oriented view of biology “lost” to an overwhelming scientific revolution, Darwinism, and subsequent discoveries have only put more nails in the design argument’s coffin. There was a revolution, Pearcey acknowledges, but at its core it was philosophical and ideological, one with no room for intelligent design in biology. “Without Hegel there would have been no Darwin,” Pearcey explains.

 C.S. Lewis & Science: An Interview With Dr. John West, Part 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 628

On an episode of ID the Future from the vault, David Boze talks about the book The Magician’s Twin: C. S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society with the editor of the book, Dr. John West. Boze and Dr. West discuss how some have tried to construe C.S. Lewis’ views in order to make them benefit their own, as well as Lewis’ views on Darwinism and intelligent design.

 Canada: Physician-Assisted Suicide Devolves to Physicians Being Forced to Commit Homicide | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1033

On this episode of ID the Future, bioethicist Wesley J. Smith exposes the horror of “Medically Assistance in Dying” (MAi/D) in Canada. Worse than physician-assisted suicide, this is medical homicide. Hospitals are even advertising it. Doctors in at least one province have no choice but to be complicit in these killings, or else leave their specialties or even quit medicine altogether. Will MAiD come to America, too?

 J. P. Moreland: This Moral Knowledge a Surer Bet than the Electron | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 825

On this episode of ID the Future, Biola philosopher J. P. Moreland concludes a four-part series with host Mike Keas on scientism (not to be confused with objective scientific investigation). Moreland calls scientism “the single most destructive idea on the stage of life today. … It’s evil and it’s everywhere.” Strong words! But he isn’t without hope. Moreland explains how moral knowledge can be stronger, more secure, than even much scientific knowledge, and far more secure than the self-defeating materialist ideology that is scientism. He’s distilling arguments from his new book Scientism and Secularism: Learning to Respond to a Dangerous Ideology.

 Socrates in the City with Eric Metaxas and Stephen Meyer, pt. 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 757

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Stephen Meyer and Eric Metaxas continue their conversation on Dr. Meyer’s New York Times bestseller Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design. Tune in as Dr. Meyer explains the Cambrian Explosion, discussing how it has become an even more acute problem for evolutionary theory since Darwin’s day, and examines the effects of a materialistic bias on the scientific process.

 Greg Koukl Talks Heretic: One Scientist’s Journey from Darwin to Design | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1108

On this episode of ID the Future, author, speaker, and radio talk show host Greg Koukl, president of Stand to Reason, talks through a review of Heretic: One Scientist’s Journey from Darwin to Design. It’s the autobiographical story, co-written by Jonathan Witt, of distinguished Finnish bioengineer Matti Leisola. His whole perspective on science changed when he asked himself the question Koukl likes to ask: “Do you want the right answers, or do you demand the right kinds of answers — those answers that comport with naturalism, materialism, and physicalism?” Please consider donating to support the IDTF Podcast: idthefuture.org/donate.

 J. P. Moreland on Scientism, Darwinism, and Bucking the Consensus | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 907

On this episode of ID the Future, philosopher J. P. Moreland explains from his new book Scientism and Secularism: Learning to Respond to a Dangerous Ideology how scientism helped bring about Darwinism’s current widespread acceptance. Ironically, the process involved some scientists who dismiss theology … doing theology, and doing it not very well. Moreland says this is just one of the reasons that it’s rational to buck the consensus on evolution. Please consider donating to support the IDTF Podcast: idthefuture.org/donate.

 Socrates in the City with Eric Metaxas and Stephen Meyer, Part 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 704

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, hear the second segment of an engaging discussion between acclaimed author Eric Metaxas and Dr. Stephen Meyer at Socrates in the City in New York.  Dr. Meyer discusses backlash to the publication of his book Darwin’s Doubt and delves into key points of the positive scientific case for intelligent design, including irreducible complexity and the digital information in our DNA.

 Wesley J. Smith on Human Cloning Hidden under Jargon | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 809

On this episode of ID the Future, bioethicist Wesley J. Smith speaks with host Dean Abbott about the arrival of human cloning. While significant barriers remain that will slow its development as far as human-cloned babies and adults, ethical constraints still depend only on scientists’ restraint — a “thin reed to stand on.” Human cloning research is underway even now, under cover of scientific jargon to obscure what’s going on, Smith says.

 J.P. Moreland: Scientism Fuels Our Culture’s Turmoil | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1099

On this episode of ID the Future, host Mike Keas and philosopher J. P. Moreland continue their conversation on Moreland’s new book Scientism and Secularism: Learning to Respond to a Dangerous Ideology. Scientism is the view that science trumps all other knowledge, but Moreland and Keas reveal in this podcast just how much science depends on both philosophy and history. Scientism is, thus, self-defeating. Nevertheless, and as Moreland goes on to argue, it remains “at the bottom of the turmoil that is facing our culture,” and many young people are being sucked into its errors.
