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.

Key Figures in Intelligent Design Measure the Impact of Discovery Institute

On this special year-end episode of ID The Future, David Boze celebrates the impact of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture in supporting scientific research and defending academic freedom for scientists, scholars, and others in the intelligent design movement. Boze interviews astronomer Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez, Biologic Institute director Dr. Douglas Axe, and author and Discovery Institute senior fellow Dr. David Berlinski. Says Berlinski: “Nobody else is doing what the Discovery Institute has been able to do, and that is really put an entire scientific establishment on the defensive, forced for the first time to respond to some very significant criticism…” Support the search for truth!

Discussing the New Exoplanet With Astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez

Have scientists discovered a planet with possible life on it?

As the co-originator of the Galactic Habitable Zone, Dr. Gonzalez knows better than anyone what it takes for a planet to sustain life. Listen in as he tells us whether the newly discovered exoplanet Gliese 581d is

In any case, multiverse speculations do not explain those aspects of
