ID the Future

Francis Collins, Eye Evolution, and Blind Faith

On this classic ID the Future, Casey Luskin tackles another neo-Darwinian assertion made by Francis Collins and Karl Giberson in The Language of Science and Faith. There they make an offhand statement that a series of random mutations can lead to such a novel structure as the eye. However, they neglect to give any citation or discuss any evidence to support the claim. Instead of simply accepting the neo-Darwinian explanation of the eye on faith, Luskin leads listeners through an examination of the evidence. As he shows, the more closely we look, the more problems appear for the idea that the eye originated through a process of mindless evolution. For additional evidence that the vertebrate eye was instead intelligently designed, see Read More ›

Life: Fearfully and Wonderfully Fine Tuned

Today’s ID the Future spotlights the incredible fine tuning of life. Robert J. Marks hosts Stockholm University professor of mathematical statistics Ola Hössjer and University of Miami population geneticist Daniel Díaz. The three discuss strategies for extending the concept of fine tuning to biological systems, and along the way touch on population genetics, entropy, and probability theory. At the center of the discussion are three technical papers—here, here, and here—each co-authored by one or more of the three members of today’s podcast discussion. This episode is reposted with permission from Mind Matters News, a website of Discovery Institute’s Walter Bradley Center for Natural and Artificial Intelligence.

Max McLean Talks about His New C.S. Lewis Movie

On this ID the Future award-winning actor Max McLean joins host John West to discuss his new film, The Most Reluctant Convert: The Untold Story of C.S. Lewis. West and McLean discuss how McClean came to do stage plays focused on Lewis’s work, and how he and filmmaker Norman Stone came to create a feature-length dramatic film in the midst of the coronavirus shutdown. McLean tells about Lewis’s long and winding conversion from agnosticism to Christianity, and then he and West focus on those aspects of Lewis’s conversion centered on science, evolutionary theory, and rational theism. Key to Lewis’s move from agnosticism to idealism and eventually Judeo-Christian theism—his friend Owen Barfield and the question of the origin of reason. Lewis Read More ›

The Colorado Chapter of the Science & Culture Network invites you to join another webinar on one of the greatest challenges to Darwinism. Here is a brief teaser, provided by the chapter: Darwinian Evolution is based on a series of small step-wise changes, each of which increases the survivability of the species. This explanation seems to fit how a species might adapt to small changes in climate or food supply over a long period of time. However, this doesn’t explain major changes to a species’ body plan, especially when the change must occur in a short period of time. Metamorphosis (from caterpillar to butterfly) is one such roadblock, one that seems to be an insurmountable hurdle to the Darwinian model. The complete list of changes that occur in one to two weeks is

Given enough time, can bacteria mutate into insects by chance? Can random mutations account for the existence of butterflies and whales and platypuses? What about the origin of the universe or the origin of man’s ability to reason? Come and hear scientists and scholars discuss the limitations of chance and the abundant testimonies to design, as they come to realization from physics to proteins.
