On this ID the Future from the vault, brain surgeon and Evolution News blogger Michael Egnor talks with host Casey Luskin about his internet debates with Jerry Coyne and the trends and dynamics he sees in the intelligent design/evolution blogosphere. Dr. Egnor also speaks briefly on the evidence he sees for intelligent design in the brain, what atheist and science writer Isaac Asimov once described as “the most complicated organization of matter that we know.” Egnor says that may be true but that we needn’t look to the brain for confirmation that something in nature required intelligent design. We can find powerful evidence of it in something far humbler. Tune in to listen to his answer, and stay tuned for other installments in this conversation between Egnor and Luskin.
