    Dr. Cornelius Hunter: Evidence Against Darwinian Evolution in the Hammerhead Shark

    On this episode of ID the Future, host David Boze interviews Dr. Cornelius Hunter about several lines of evidence against Darwinian evolution found in the hammerhead shark. The unique design of the hammerhead's aerodynamic head, or cephalofoil, includes electromagnetic tracking of prey and binocular vision. Although new research reported in Science Daily gratuitously presents these unique features as a product of unguided evolution, the Darwinian framework fails to offer any insight into how they might have arisen. Dr. Cornelius G. Hunter is Adjunct Professor at Biola University and author of the award-winning Darwin's God: Evolution and the Problem of Evil. His blog can be found at darwins-god.blogspot.com.

    Brian Miller on Letting Alien Feet in the Door to Keep a Divine Foot Out

    Harvard geneticist Richard Lewontin famously insisted that science must never let a “divine foot in the door.” On this episode of ID the Future, Discovery Institute’s new research coordinator for the Center for Science and Culture looks at the bizarre place this has taken evolutionist William Hamilton. Arguing that an “ultimate good, which is of a religious nature,” could exist, Hamilton describes this higher source not as God or any other non-material entity but as aliens who set up earth as a type of zoo. Listen in. It gets even stranger.

    Jay Richards: Falsifiability in Science

    On this episode of ID the Future, Logan Gage and Jay Richards discuss Popper’s falsification test for science. Today, the demarcation for science is the idea is that a theory should be empirically testable. Nonetheless, many ID proponents use the harder criterion of falsifiability.

    The Best Way to Teach Evolution: Treat It Like Science

    What's the best way to teach evolution? On this episode of ID the Future, Rob Crowther interviews Casey Luskin about his article, "The Constitutionality and Pedagogical Benefits of Teaching Evolution Scientifically," published in the University of St. Thomas Journal of Law & Public Policy. Luskin shares from his research of the problems facing American science education -- how students not inspired to pursue science and not taught how to think like scientists -- and the solution of inquiry-based science education. How does critical analysis of evolution promote scientific thinking? And what does the law say about teaching critiques of Darwin's theory? Tune in to find out. You can read more about Mr. Luskin's law review article here.
