‘Chapman’s News & Ideas’ highlights news, views and policy advice from Discovery Institute founder Bruce Chapman, derived from his long career in local, state, national and international affairs.

Human Exceptionalism
Author: Wesley J. Smith

Secondhand Smoke considers issues involving assisted suicide/euthanasia, bioethics, human cloning, biotechnology, and the dangers of animal rights/liberation. Wesley’s views expressed on the site, as in his books and other writings, reflect his understanding that the philosophy of human exceptionalism is the bedrock of universal human rights. Or, to put it another way: human life matters.


Intelligent Design – The Future
Authors: CSC Fellows

The ID The Future (IDTF) podcast carries on Discovery Institute’s mission of exploring the issues central to evolution and intelligent design (ID). IDTF provides listeners with the most current news and views on evolution and ID through brief interviews with key scientists and scholars developing the theory of ID, as well as insightful commentary from Discovery Institute senior fellows and staff on the scientific, educational and legal aspects of the debate.


Evolution News and Views
Authors: CSC Fellows and Staff

The misreporting of the evolution issue is one key reason for this new blog. The news media in the U.S. seem to have rediscovered the evolution controversy recently. Unfortunately, much of the news coverage has been sloppy, inaccurate, and in several cases, overtly biased. Contributors include Rob Crowther and John West, among others.


Letter From the Capitol
Author: John Wohlstetter

This blog provides analysis pertaining to war, security, economic and cultural issues. The blog is authored by Discovery Institute Senior Fellow John Wohlstetter, author of The Long War Ahead and the Short War Upon Us.
