Alfred Russel Wallace and His Friendly Battle with Darwin

10/21/2020
On this ID the Future, science historian Michael Flannery continues discussing his newly updated Intelligent Evolution: How Alfred Russel Wallace’s World of Life Challenged Darwin. Wallace was co-founder with Charles Darwin of the theory of evolution by random variation and natural selection, but unlike Darwin he saw teleology or purpose as essential to life’s history, and a teleological view as essential to the life sciences. According to Flannery, Wallace’s views on the nature of the cell,...

Michael Denton’s Epiphany about Nature’s Fitness for Life

10/19/2020
On this episode of ID the Future, biochemist and author Michael Denton tells host Eric Anderson more about his new book The Miracle of the Cell, and about his epiphany when he recognized the many remarkable ways that nature’s chemistry is fine-tuned for life. The focus in this conversation is on carbon chemistry and its “goldilocks zone” ability to form stable bonds but let loose of them when needed. Whereas biologists once wondered about a vitalist “life force” in the cell, Denton sees...

Dr. Michael Denton: Paradigm Shifts

10/16/2020
On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Australian biochemist and geneticist Michael Denton discusses paradigm shifts in science. Dr. Denton reflects on paradigm shifts that he’s witnessed in his lifetime, how his own thinking has changed over the years, and how these shifts challenge Darwinian evolution in new ways. Denton is author of the new book The Miracle of the Cell (https://discoveryinstitutepress.com/book/the-miracle-of-the-cell/).

Michael Flannery on the Origin of Darwin’s Worldview

10/14/2020
On this episode of ID the Future, science historian and host Michael Keas talks with fellow science historian Michael Flannery about the newly updated book Intelligent Evolution: How Alfred Russell Wallace’s World of Life Challenged Darwin. Flannery tells of Darwin’s involvement in the Plinian Society, a “freethinkers” group at Edinburgh University where he studied medicine as a teenager. It was there that he first encountered radical philosophical materialism, the worldview that laid the...

Michael Denton Discusses The Miracle of the Cell

10/12/2020
On this episode of ID the Future, Eric Anderson speaks with biochemist Michael Denton about Denton’s new book The Miracle of the Cell, part of his continuing Privileged Species series exploring nature’s fine tuning for life. New research keeps unveiling ever more ways in which this fine tuning exists, from the cosmos to the atoms of the periodic table, even to the subatomic level of quantum tunneling. As for the cell itself, It is as if scientists are discovering a “third infinity,” says...

Michael Denton: Remarkable Coincidences in Photosynthesis

10/9/2020
On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, we listen in on a few minutes from a lecture given by Australian biochemist Michael Denton, author of the brand new book The Miracle of the Cell. In this segment, Denton explains the “remarkable set of coincidences” that makes the creation of oxygen through photosynthesis possible. From the specific energy of visible light to the unique properties of water, this degree of fine tuning for life shouts intelligent design. Source

Dr. Michael Denton on Evidence of Fine-Tuning in the Universe

10/7/2020
On this year 2012 episode of ID the Future from the vault, Australian biochemist Michael Denton discusses various ways the universe is uniquely fit for carbon-based life, and perhaps even human life. Denton argues that when it comes to evidence of fine-tuning in the universe, the more you look, the more you find. Tune in to discover what he has found that has led him to the inference that our world is intelligently designed. Denton is author of the new book The Miracle of the Cell, where he...

The Demise of the Artifact Hypothesis

10/5/2020
paleoentomologist Günter Bechly makes the case that recent findings have put the nails in the coffin of this “artifact hypothesis.” He goes on to argue that these findings are “not just a tiny problem but a fatal problem” for modern Darwinism. Source

The Demise of the Artifact Hypothesis

10/5/2020
Darwinian gradualism predicts biological forms evolving gradually from one to another, but it is widely acknowledged that this is not what the fossil record shows. Darwinists have long suggested that this fossil record pattern of major discontinuities is merely an artifact of the fossil record being incomplete. But on this episode of ID the Future, paleoentomologist Günter Bechly makes the case that recent findings have put the nails in the coffin of this “artifact hypothesis.” He goes on to...

A Reading from Michael Denton’s New Book, The Miracle of the Cell

9/30/2020
On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid reads an excerpt from the new book The Miracle of the Cell by Michael Denton. Denton, a biochemist from Perth, Australia, and senior fellow of Discover Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, introduces the wonders of the cell as “the universal constructor set of life.” The diversity of cells — their variety of form, function, and locomotion — is beyond describing, with some cells almost seeming sentient, even ingenious. As Denton notes,...
