The Scientific Problems with Kojonen’s Theistic Evolution Model

Stephen Dilley
February 26, 2024
Can evolution and intelligent design work together in harmony? Or is that wishful thinking? On this ID The Future, host Casey Luskin concludes his conversation with philosopher Dr. Stephen Dilley about a recent proposal to marry mainstream evolutionary theory with a case for intelligent design. Dr. Dilley is lead author of a comprehensive critique of Kojonen’s model co-authored with Luskin, Brian Miller, and Emily Reeves and published in the journal Religions. In the second half of their discussion, Luskin and Dilley explain key scientific problems with Kojonen’s theistic evolution model. First up is Kojonen’s acceptance of both convergent evolution and common ancestry, two methods used by evolutionary biologists to explain common design features among different

Stephen C. Meyer on the Crisis of Trust in Science

Wesley J. Smith
February 26, 2024
It is no secret that most of society’s critical institutions are suffering from a crisis of trust. One of these is science, which heretofore enjoyed the confidence of the vast majority of the American people. To learn, what happened, whether the loss of confidence is deserved, and what can be done about it, Wesley asked the Director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture to engage the crisis. This is Meyer’s second appearance on Humanize. Dr. Stephen C. Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge and is a former geophysicist and college professor. He authored Signature in the Cell, which was named a Book of the Year for 2009 by the Times of London, the New York Times best seller, Darwin’s Doubt, and most

The Primacy of Information Over Matter

William A. Dembski
February 22, 2024
In this episode, host Michael Egnor continues a conversation with Dr. William Dembski, a senior fellow at Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, about the relationship between the mind and the body. Dembski argues that if information is considered fundamental rather than matter, it dissolves the mind-body problem. He suggests that information is not constrained by the speed of light and can be exchanged through correlations, as seen in quantum mechanics. Dembski also discusses the concept of free will and how materialism denies its existence. He explores the idea of information as a fundamental concept in the natural world, analogous to energy, and discusses conservation of information and its relevance to Darwinian evolution. Dembski concludes by suggesting that an

Coram Deo Church of Bremerton, WA will host Discovery Institute Vice President John G. West as he presents on the role of Christianity in cultural reformation on Tuesday night, March 12. Guests are encouraged to register in advance, as space is limited. From the organizers: Is American culture in a death spiral? If so, what can the church do about it? Increasingly, the institutions we depend on for vibrant communities—churches, families, schools, businesses, and the media—appear to be failing. Less than two in ten Americans have a “great deal” of confidence in the church, public schools, banks, newspapers, the medical system, or the criminal justice system. More than 80% of Americans think the moral state of the nation is getting worse. We are told by some we live in a

The CSC Seminar on Intelligent Design in the Natural Sciences will prepare participants to make research contributions advancing the growing science of intelligent design (ID). The seminar will explore cutting-edge ID work in fields such as molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology, developmental biology, paleontology, computational biology, ID-theoretic mathematics, cosmology, physics, and the history and philosophy of science. The seminar will include presentations on the application of intelligent design to laboratory research as well as frank treatment of the academic realities that ID researchers confront in graduate school and beyond, and strategies for dealing with them. Although the primary focus of the seminar is science, there also will be discussion on worldview
