ID the Future

Brian Miller on the Limits of Protein Evolution

Was the universe designed to evolve through natural processes? In a recent book, theologian Dr. Rope Kojonen has argued that evolutionary mechanisms work in harmony with intelligent design to produce the diversity of life we see on earth. But can these fundamentally different processes really work together? On this ID The Future, host Casey Luskin speaks with physicist Dr. Brian Miller to explore why Kojonen's theory fails on scientific grounds. This interview is part of a series responding to Kojonen's proposal. Catch other episodes in the series at idthefuture.com or through your favorite podcasting app.

The Scientific Problems with Kojonen’s Theistic Evolution Model

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 outlines the scientific problems with Kojonen's proposal and explains why it contradicts our natural intuition to detect design. This is Part 2 of a two-part conversation. Be sure to catch Part 1, and look for more interviews with others on this topic soon.

Biologist Jonathan Wells Offers a Cure for Zombie Science

On this ID the Future from the vault, Zombie Science author and biologist Jonathan Wells and host Andrew McDiarmid explore the seductive but misleading appeal to consensus science. Wells also explains the difference between evidence-based empirical science and ideologically driven science, giving plenty of examples along the way. For more on the topic, get a copy of Dr. Wells's book Zombie Science.

Discovery Institute is pleased to announce that the annual Intelligent Design Education Day is returning to Spokane, Washington with thanks to our hosts at Great Northern University. This year’s theme — “How to Code Life” — will explore the incredible coding and decoding technology that lies at the heart of every living thing. How do these biological codes compare to computer code authored by humans? What is the implication of finding unique code in each type of organism? How can our study of life’s codes enhance scientific research, medical treatments, and more? Join us on Wednesday, March 20, to find out. This in-person event is open to all ages but designed especially for middle school and high

The C.S. Lewis Fellows Program on Science and Society will explore the growing impact of science on politics, economics, social policy, bioethics, theology, and the arts during the past century. The program is named after celebrated British writer C.S. Lewis, a perceptive critic of both scientism and technocracy in books such as The Abolition of Man and That Hideous Strength. Topics to be addressed include the history of science, the relationship between faith and science, the rise of scientific materialism, the debate over Darwinian theory and intelligent design, evolutionary conceptions of ethics, science and economics, science and criminal justice, stem cell research and abortion, eugenics, family life and sexuality, ecology and animal rights, climate

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

Nothing compares to the otherworldy experience of witnessing a total solar eclipse in person. Discovery Institute is pleased, then, to invite you to join us for a one-of-a-kind eclipse experience, when the “path of totality” will pass directly over our event venue. Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) has kindly offered the use of their auditorium and football field for our event due to the proximity of their Waxahachie campus, one of the best viewing locations in the
