ID the Future

Promoting Design Arguments in Mexico and Beyond

International interest in intelligent design is growing. On this ID The Future, host Andrew McDiarmid welcomes back Dr. Brian Miller, this time to discuss his recent participation at a conference on science and faith in Guadalajara and to explain how intelligent design is making inroads internationally.

Bob Marks on Why AI Won’t Destroy the World, or Save It

Today’s ID the Future from the vault dives into the controversial realm of artificial intelligence (AI). Will robots or other computers ever become so fast and powerful that they become conscious, creative, and free? Will AI reach a point where it leaves humans in the dust? To shed light on these and other questions, host Casey Luskin interviews computer engineering professor Robert J. Marks, head of the Walter Bradley Center for Natural and Artificial Intelligence.

The Humble Origins of the Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang theory changed how we understand our universe. But who do we have to thank for it? On this ID The Future, host Andrew McDiarmid concludes his conversation with esteemed cosmologist Jean-Pierre Luminet, who sets the record straight on the real heroes of the Big Bang Theory with his new book The Big Bang Revolutionaries, available now from Discovery Institute Press. In Part 2, Dr. Luminet sheds more light on chief architect George Lemaitre, as well as Alexander Friedmann and George Gamow. He also discusses how the Big Bang model stands up to scrutiny today. This is Part 2 of a two-part conversation.

On June 3-4 at the Royal Castle of Krakow-Niepolomice in Poland, Discovery Institute Fellows Douglas Axe, Brian Miller, and Jay Richards will join Dominican friar, university professor, and author Michał Chaberek to present on the scientific theory of intelligent design and its implications for faith in God. This 2nd-annual conference, Faith & Science in the Age of Secularization, will explore the “Return of the God Hypothesis” — a theme borrowed from the title of Stephen Meyer’s latest book. According to the conference organizers, this event will address four questions that modern science cannot resolve without the help of theology — the origin of the universe, the origin of cosmic fine-tuning, the origin of life, and the origin of biodiversity.

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
