A Crisis in Cosmology?

It’s too bad biologists are not as open about crises in their theories. It’s the sign of a healthy science.

The Big Bang vs. The Static Universe: Is It the End of Cosmology?

On this episode of ID The Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin interviews noted Iowa State University astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez about the announcement of a forthcoming cosmology article by Lawrence M. Krauss and Robert J. Scherrer (Case Western Reserve University, and Vanderbilt University respectively) titled The Return of a Static Universe and the End of Cosmology. The paper is already inviting a great deal of comment since it deals with the debate over the big bang and the static universe, and says extrapolating forward in time, in the future we will be incapable of determining the true nature of the universe.

What is the evidence for intelligent design from the field of astronomy? 

In biology one of the main pieces of evidence for intelligent design is the bacterial flagellum. What are some of the main pieces of evidence supporting intelligent design in the field of astronomy? On this episode of ID The Future we feature a short clip of astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez explaining that for the past 50 years physicists and astronomers have been exploring the idea of the fine tuning of the constants of nature. Gonzalez points to this fine tuning as one piece of evidence for intelligent design and then goes on to describe some of the other evidences within astronomy and cosmology.

The Privileged Planet Hypothesis

On this episode of ID The Future we’re highlighting a short clip of senior fellow Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez at the 2006 Intelligent Design Under Fire conference where he discusses the hypothesis he and co-author Jay Richards laid out in their book The Privileged Planet, which is that The conditions for life in the universe correlate or overlap with the conditions you need to make scientific discoveries.
