On this ID the Future host Casey Luskin interviews science journalist Denyse O'Leary about her recent essay, “Is Evolutionary Psychology a Legitimate Way to Understand Our Humanity,” which appears in the new Harvest House anthology co-edited by Luskin, The Comprehensive Guide to Science and Faith. O'Leary, a science journalist and co-author of The Spiritual Brain, offers a withering critique of evolutionary psychology and traces its roots, beginning with The Descent of Man (1871), where Charles Darwin attributed various human behaviors to natural and sexual selection. That fed into what became known as social Darwinism, which fell out of favor after World War II thanks to Hitler and the Nazis' application of social Darwinist ideas to defend Nordic superiority and genocide.

On today's ID the Future Darwin Devolves author and biologist Michael Behe discusses two recent technical papers that the news media billed as dramatic evidence for evolution. As Behe explains in his conversation with host Eric Anderson, a careful look at the papers themselves shows that both cases involve devolution. That is, the biological forms in question did not evolve novel structures and information; instead they threw away things to achieve a niche advantage. In the first study, in the journal Nature Microbiology, the researchers found that in Africa, where “most rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for falciparum malaria recognize histidine-rich protein 2 antigen,” the malaria parasite has repeatedly evolved a way to sometimes elude detection, giving it a selective advantage, Read More › Source

Today's ID the Future again spotlights The Comprehensive Guide to Science and Faith. Historian Richard Weikart and host Casey Luskin discuss Weikart's contribution to the new anthology, his essay “How Evil Has Been Done in the Name of Science.” As Weikart explains, over the past century and a half, science has been misused to fuel racist policies and undermine human rights. Darwinian ideas helped lay the groundwork for Nazi ideology in Germany. And we shouldn't imagine the problem was restricted to Nazi Germany. Scientific racism also reared its head in the United States, including in the long-running and infamous Tuskegee syphilis experiment. More broadly, a marriage of scientism and evolutionary thinking continues to undermine the idea of inherent human worth Read More › Source

Phil asks whether fittest should be replaced with adaptability. K Sera argues that fittest implies adaptability. Micah blames capitalism. In this episode we have discuss the podcast itself, Darwinism, what the word fit means, what did our parents play when they were children, playing outside in the 90s as a child, the pandemic as an enemy, military cosplay, media reaction to tan suits and long ties, and the decline of Pax Americana.   Note: This podcast was originally recorded in the early winter of 2020, almost a year before the publication of the episode. Phil makes a terrible risk assessment of MAGA supports and protestors, once again proving how foolish it is to make predictions.   Show notes: Survival of the fittest Playing outside back in the 90s Pandemic fatalities compared to other death comparisons are fraught A tan suit controversy Why do societies fail, from Jared Diamond   K Sera's afterthoughts: - Phil… words can and do have more than one definition. Fitness: n. 1.) The condition of being physically fit and healthy. 2.) The quality of being suitable to fulfill a particular role or task. 3.) (Biology) An organism's ability to survive and reproduce in a particular environment. - While listening to our discussion, It really hits me hard just how incredibly different we three approach the world. Micah is like a pessimistic black hole of despair who believes revolution and war are on the horizon on our home soil; Phil's actions demonstrate hope for the future, but his words suggest deep concerns and the expectation of imminent failure; and then there is me, the lizard, who is cautiously optimistic about humanity's path forward, but also kind of apathetic about humanity's long-term survival.   Despite our different views, we all kind of agree on a few key things: bad people need to be held accountable for their bad actions and our current situation is not particularly promising. Humanity is walking a tightrope, and none of us knows just how far we'll fall if we lose our balance. Here is why I don't think we are imminently doomed: Humanity has faced down traumatic and devastating situations in the past and we've survived and learned from them (maybe not always as much as we'd like, but we are generally heading in the direction of improvement). We might fail and we might fall, but maybe (hopefully) not permanently. Or, we might keep our footing and be just fine. People are resilient and highly adaptable. People are creative. The game isn't over until there are no more players on the field. What I'm saying is we still have a chance. Here's why, despite my optimism, I'm also relatively apathetic about humanity's end game survival: There really isn't much I can or will do as an individual to make an impact on humanity's overall future. Of course I do small things within my power towards the goal of survival, but humanity's direction is an ocean tide I can't actually stop by myself. Worrying incessantly about things that I can't control or won't change is pointless and unhealthy. The best I can do is to change the things I can change and adapt as best I can to things I can't control.  Or, as Teddy Roosevelt* said: “Do what you can with what you have, where you are.” (*and I guess Bill Widener, and probably other people, honestly. It's a good quote.) In the end, que sera sera.   Phil's afterthoughts: -I just want to say I was so wrong in this podcast. When I re-listen to this episode I cannot believe what I said about how Trump supports were not really a threat to anyone (and that they are just cosplaying). But little did I know that only a month later (from the original recording of this podcast) that we would have a national event in the congressional halls of Washington DC. K Sera is right, people are terrible at making predictions. -With that in mind, I hope I am also wrong about our chances of surviving as a nation. Every day there is more evidence that the system is owned by the wealthiest 0.1% of America. At this point we are firmly an oligarchy. And yet my predictions are often wrong, so perhaps this is wrong as well. Individuals that only follow intuition are prone to follow the impulsive and the immediate gratification of an answer. I hope that I am just a lazy thinker, and that the world is more complex and that humanity is not as selfish and self-destructive as it seems. I do so hope.

Hot Mess Millionaire
Vaccination, Medical Racism, And The Illusion of Choice

Is there really such a thing as “choice?” Notice all the noise surrounding NBA Star, Kyrie Irving, standing for his “choice” to NOT be vaccinated. The amount of social and institutional pressure is huge. If one does not acquiesce, there are punitive consequences. Slavery was the exact same way.   This week, Dr. Venus does a deep dive into the illusion of choice, showing how those who have been historically marginalized have also been victims to “choose” a certain thing or action, or suffer the consequences. She gives examples of heartbreaking medical racism from Racial Eugenics (which Hitler modeled), the Tuskegee Experiment which sickened and killed HUNDREDS of Black Men, to Henrietta Lacks who had cells stolen for research.   Dr. Venus gives historical context as to why some Black people have a mistrust of vaccines, due to an industry that has a history of turning Black bodies into lab rats. However you feel about it, your feelings are valid. It's a hot topic, but let's talk about it.   Key Takeaways: [1:13] What is choice when there are punitive consequences if you don't comply? Dr. Venus explains how medical racism goes deep, and when we combine eugenics, even deeper. [4:22] When an NBA player recently refused a vaccine, he lost money, playing time, and he was shamed by society. Is this really a choice? He lost more than half his income due to a policy, and Dr. Venus discusses how these policies are typically created by White people in power to affect those that tend to be marginalized even more. [7:03] This perceived choice runs parallel to both slavery and reproductive rights. First, Black Men and Women had the “choice” to evade death by acquiescing, giving up their bodies and doing what White Men said in order to stay alive. Women had the “right” to choose to have a baby, but sometimes at the cost of laws being created against that, and forced sterilization. The way the world articulates it, it makes it sound that if you choose something other than what is being presented, you are going against what is good for the people. You can choose, but you just may lose your friends, job, money, etc. [9:59] It is a historical wound and a FACT that the medical industry has taken our bodies and used them for science. Dr. Venus gives the emotional example of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, with HUNDREDS of African-American men unknowingly serving as human guinea pigs. They let them die and be sick for research. We don't want to live at the effect of it or be made to feel like we are doing something wrong when we have mistrust and doubt about medicine. [16:32] Throughout history, rich White Men have tried to create the strongest race of people by sterilizing those that they deemed anything less than the best. Based on Darwinism, they sterilized over 8,000 people in the name of progress. If you were handicapped, poor, slow, of color, etc, you would have been killed. [22:04] The violation of medical ethics with Tuskegee had a direct impact on medical ethics, but how do we still trust the system today? Dr. Venus gives another example with Henrietta Lacks, a Black woman whose cervical cancer cells were taken without consent in 1951, cloned and widely used for medical research. [25:00] Whatever your choice is around the vaccine, you have every right to that. However, please know that our historical wounds are valid, and you are asking Black Men and Women to lay down logic and trust an institution that has built policies against us. [30:20] Dr. Venus knows that at some point, she may have to take the vaccine. She can't do a group Pilates class because she hasn't gotten it. That's just one example. They can take away people's rights to fly, go to a restaurant, enter a bank, etc. There's no choice. It's a delayed punitive consequence, and it's just the illusion of choice. [32:32] Black people have been lab rats for medicine in America. Even if we can't articulate it, we can feel it. As a Black person whose people have been experimented on, that is a valid truth. Do not feel pressured into a decision that you don't feel good about. [35:19] Dr. Venus does take health and COVID very seriously, and even lost her brother to it, and couldn't be there with him because of the virus, or mourn him properly, in person, with her family. What she contends with is that if you have a right to choose to wear a mask or not, why can't women choose to keep or terminate a pregnancy? If it's my body my choice for reproductive rights, what's the difference when it comes to vaccination?   Quotes: “When policies are put in place that have punitive consequences and they say you have a choice, what real choice do you have?” “If you have a right to choose a mask, why can't I choose whether or not to keep a baby?” “Do not feel pressured into a decision that you don't feel good about.” “There's no choice. It's a delayed punitive consequence. It's the illusion of choice, that is the way supremacy works.”   Mentioned: Dr. Venus Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Amazon Pilot  “Hot Mess Millionaire” Complete Series (https://www.youtube.com/c/DrVenusOpalReese) Pre-order the GurrlApp here: www.TheGurrlApp.com/presale  Free Gift When You Join The Truth Tribe The Black Woman Millionaire Hot Mess Edition   ATTENTION BLACK WOMEN: If you want to be THE FIRST to know about ALL things Dr. Venus' tech start-up, fill out the form below so you get access FIRST to updates, launches, and the behind the scene scoop! http://bit.ly/DrVenusAppInfo   RESOURCES Racism and discrimination in health care: Providers and patients ‘My body, my choice' mantra on vaccines should also apply for reproductive rights: Marvin A.

Kuhn argued there that if one studies the history of scientific revolutions, one finds that when the scientific evidence has begun to turn against a dominant scientific paradigm—when its days are numbered— its adherents do not simply concede defeat. Instead they use all their institutional power to suppress dissent and punish proponents of any competing paradigm. This is the period of crisis, which can last Read More › Source

This is when someone makes a bandwagon appeal to support a scientific hypothesis rather than offering evidence and arguments—as in, “All serious scientists agree that X is the case.” Wells says history makes hash of the consensus-science appeal because the history of scientific progress is all about a consensus view being overthrown by a newer, more accurate view that for a time was a minority view. Wells also draws a distinction between evidence-based empirical science and ideologically driven science. The example he gives for the latter: scientific materialism.

What are the new relationships thought to be between cancer and evolution? Cancer can be considered in a new light by accepting a new definition and possible set of interactions. Listen up to learn: Why all may not be well in evolutionary theory What Julian Huxley may have gotten wrong How the immune system can offer clues about cancer Denis Noble, a member of the Department of Physiology, Anatomy, and Genetics at the University of Oxford, shares his view of the new links between Darwinism and cancer that may revolutionize the field.  It has been known that mutations play a role in cancer for a great while, but in recent years, the style of mutations has hinted at new lines of thinking. These new lines of thought have even caused a possible shift in the current and widely accepted theory of evolution. By assuming that control of the tumor only arises out of genetic sequencing, it is possible that the current method of examination may be short-sighted. After understanding the genome first, researchers also need to consider the downstream ramifications of the formation and operation of cancerous tumors.

*Today we present the return of a classic show. Update: Bob and Cheryl Enyart are being treated in hospital for severe Covid 19 conditions. They love you guys and are praying for you and hope that you will pray for them and their seven wonderful sons and extended family. Before heading in, Bob reminded us, "God is good, all the time." Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart discusses the growing field of quantum biology with Brian, an information systems guy with one of the world's major institutions who earned a double-major in mechanical engineering and physics from Iowa State University. This engineer argues that some of the extraordinary abilities of biological organisms go beyond what seems possible from standard chemistry and physics. Quantum mechanics, astoundingly, enables the navigational abilities of the Arctic Tern to fly halfway around the globe and of Monarch butterflies to migrate from Canada to Mexico. The startling, often sub-atomic, quantum world of the two-slit experiment and of wave/particle duality, of quantum entanglement, superposition, coherence and quantum tunneling, has disrupted the already wildly complex field of biology. Evidence is mounting that the most bewildering abilities of living organisms come courtesy of the Designer using quantum effects to accomplish what otherwise would seem to be impossible! RSR's Quantum Thoughts: - 2018: Quantum Biology Pt. 1 (this program) - 2019: QB Pt. 2: Our seemingly impossible sense of smell  - 2019: How Quantum Computers Do It: Finally, a Helpful Explanation - 2019: Google's Quantum Supremacy - 2019: Top Mathematicians: Ants & Bees, Mold & Amoebas - 2018: Coincidence or Determinism? Quantum theology and physics - 2015: An RSR preview show - 2020: Bob's draft paper rsr.org/wave-particle-duality-is-a-triality - 2021: Our very own RSR List of Quantum Rules (just below). * Jim Al-Khalili Reports on Quantum Biology: Even though the title doesn't mention it, this great embedded video is about quantum biology! (And whereas the video says Part 2 of 2, you don't need to find Part 1 and watch it because it's not about quantum biology.) It's great, except of course for the delusional necessary homage to Darwinism from 47:00 to the end. :) Update: In 2019 the two-slit experiment was conducted successfully with molecules of 2,000 atoms (Fein, et al., Nature Physics) weighing 25,000 to 40,000 AMU (atomic mass units)! Bob stated incorrectly in this 2018 program that to date, the largest molecule used was of 100 atoms. Actually, back in 2013 (Eibenberger, et al., arxiv.org) experimenters produced a quantum interference pattern using a synthetic carbon-based molecule of 810 atoms.RSR's own Quantum Rules DRAFT List: In January 2021 we posted this astounding list of all known quantum rules. So here are the directives which elementary particles obey... - Two electrons of the same energy in an atom must have opposite spin - When two electrons become entangled they must have opposite spin - Photons emitted, within nanoseconds of each other, from an electron going to ground state, are not entangled unless they are emitted in opposite directions - When there are no measurements the quantum wave state proceeds (per Schrödinger's equation) - Any measurement (observation, knowledge of, etc.) collapses the quantum wave state to a particle - A particle is most likely to materialize where the amplitude of it's wave is greatest - At which points in space particles will materialize is based on their probability waves (the probabilty of any particular outcome is the wave function squared) - A massless particle upon creation jumps instantly to the speed of light - Quarks, all of ⅓ or ⅔ +/- charge must always combine to form entities with zero or unit charge - Quarks, observed only as components of composite particles, have charges in thirds - Observed particles have electric charge of 0, +/-1, +/-2, etc.; never observed quarks - Particles cannot have fractional orbital angular momentum but only 0, ħ (h-bar), 2ħ, 3ħ, etc. - Leptons (electrons, etc.), nucleons, & quarks' spin angular momentum must be half-odd-integer ½ħ, etc. - Bosons (photons, etc.) and mesons have integral spin (i.e., in integers; pion = 0; photons, gluons = 1; etc.) - If a baryon decays the number of baryons must be conserved - A free neutron decays in minutes whereas it is stable within the nuclei of all the non-radioactive elements   (otherwise eventually only hydrogen would exist because the strong nuclear force needs neutrons to overcome proton repulsion) - A proton can't decay because it is the lightest baryon (otherwise all elements would be unstable) - Waves have "allowed regions" based on conservation laws - If a baryon decays the electrical charge must be conserved - Virtual particles differ in mass but conserve the energy and momentum of their corresponding particle - Angular momentum must be quantized in magnitude - Angular momentum must be quantized in direction - Bosons can occupy the same quantum state - All particles decay (strong 10-23 s; e-m 10-16 s; weak 10-13 s) unless prevented by conservation laws - All known conservation laws:   -- energy   -- momentum   -- angular momentum J, but orbital (integer ħ) and spin (half-integer ħ) can transfer back and forth       --- orbital (bosons include photons, gluons, Higgs, conventional mesons, etc.)       --- spin (fermions which include leptons, baryons & quarks, etc.)   -- charge   -- baryon number (i.e., quark number, in protons, neutrons, Lambdas, Sigmas, etc.) - Conservation laws that have exceptions (as in, "Do not divorce, except for sexual immorality" Mat. 19:9)   -- lepton number (electrons, muons, taus, and their neutrinos, violated including in neutrino oscillation)   -- lepton flavor conservation (neutrinos?) While Wikipedia has a list of QM equations, RSR posted the above because we've been unable to find a published list of all known quantum rules.

In an online discussion over at Prometheus Unbound, Santi, an agnostic who's had millions of visits to his blog, asked Bob Enyart about his doubts. You can read that discussion over at santitafarella.wordpress.com. This List of Doubts Christians Have (below) and first, the List of Doubts I Never Have is based on Bob's answer. Santi: Bob, I'd like to ask you a personal question. When you doubt, what is it exactly that you doubt?" Bob: Well Santi, I doubt that the rising mountain of evidence utterly refuting Darwinism will bring a majority of evolutionists to acknowledge our Creator God. I doubt that the failed predictions of the Big Bang Theory will lead atheists to… But wait. I'm sure those are not the kinds of doubts you're asking me about. You're asking me to indicate, of the beliefs that I hold, which ones do I sometimes doubt. To help myself think this through Santi, I'll first list the things I never ever doubt. - I never doubt that I exist. - I never doubt that truth exists, because for example, it is true that I exist. - I never doubt that reason exists, because I can reason to the truth of the previous sentence. - I never doubt that there is a reality, because truth and reason exist. - I never doubt that the universe exists, because I exist as part of it, and I can reason to the truth of its existence. - I never doubt that the universe must have had a beginning, because stars still burn available energy. - Since truth and reason exist, I never doubt that logic exists. - Since I exist and logic exists, I never doubt that existence itself must be rational. - Since logic and reason exist, I never doubt that whatever has a beginning must have a cause. - Since logic and reason exist, I never doubt that the effect cannot be greater than the cause. - I never doubt that whatever caused the universe must be powerful and even greater than the universe itself. - And since logic exists, I realize that nothing that has a beginning can have existed forever. - And since the Cause of the universe must exist, I realize that it has no beginning, and has existed forever.  - And since this uncaused Cause created the universe, i.e., its ingredients, I don't doubt that it also created me. - And since I'm a person and the effect can't be greater than the cause I don't doubt that the Creator is personal. - And because we persons are creative like He is, I never doubt that we are made to some extent in His likeness. - And because the Creator is a person, I never doubt that He must be alive. - So I never doubt that the attributes of our eternal Creator are that He is living and personal. - And I never doubt that human beings refer to the living and personal eternal Creator as "God". - And I never doubt that to be a person, one must have a will, so that it is by God's will that I exist. - And because we creatures have the ability to know our Creator, I never doubt that He is relational.- And because He made us with the ability to love, I never doubt that the Creator Himself can love. - And because God can love, and He made us to know good and evil, I therefore never doubt that He is good. - So I never doubt our all-powerful, eternal Creator God who is living, personal, relational, good, and loving. - And I never doubt that all these things could be intuitively understood by everyone who's ever lived. - And because God is good and loving and made us, I never doubt that He cares about us and wants to save us. - And I never doubt that if Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead as prophesied, that Christianity is false. - Nor have I ever doubted that if Jesus did rise from the dead, then all other religions are false and as He claimed, He is the only way to eternal life. Santi, these are some of the things I never doubt. Now, what do I sometimes doubt? There are many particulars regarding the universe, the world, mankind, doctrines of Scripture, points of history, economics, science, etc., that I'm eager to learn more of and to be corrected where in error. The more significant errors I've made over the years are listed on our Errata page which we link to from our KGOV.com home page and from the footer section of every one of the 10,000 pages on our site. (This article is one of those pages, at kgov.com/on-doubt, so you can see the Errata link just below.) And when I make a lesser error in a radio program, etc., we correct that error on that show's summary page. Was this a sufficient answer, or would you like some particular detail? Thanks Santi! -Bob Enyart Pastor, Denver Bible Church Conservative talk radio host, KGOV.com Co-host, Real Science Radio Teacher, Theology Thursday  p.s. Santi, as C.S. Lewis once wrote, "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it but because by it, I see everything else."

Original Description: Agnostic Santi Tafarella, over at Prometheus Unbound where he's had millions of visits, asked Bob Enyart about the doubts he may have. "Bob, I'd like to ask you a personal question. When you doubt, what is it exactly that you doubt?" Bob jumped in after his first two coy sentences. "Well Santi, I doubt that the rising mountain of evidence utterly refuting Darwinism will bring a majority of evolutionists to acknowledge our Creator God. I doubt that the failed predictions of the Big Bang Theory will lead atheists to… But wait. I'm sure those are not the kinds of doubts you're asking me about.

Why are stage 4 cancer patients not much better off today than in 1930, despite the U.S. government spending $250 billion on cancer research? Why are we losing the antibiotics race against bacteria, with superbugs evolving in a matter of minutes? According to Perry Marshall, author of Evolution 2.0: Breaking the Deadlock Between Darwin and Design, “These problems stem from an inadequate understanding of evolution itself…A prime reason cancer treatments fail is that the tumor cells evolve at tremendous speed by some kind of self-governing process.” Even in the most popular, best-selling books on evolution, critical mechanisms of high-speed evolution are hardly discussed or skipped altogether. These include symbiogenesis, transposition, epigenetics, horizontal gene transfer, reverse transcription, and endosymbiogenesis. These mechanisms go far beyond neo-Darwinism, and should compel us to examine what needs to change about the way we think about cancer. Could this be the key to moving cancer research forward…toward better treatments or a cure? The argument for "Yes" is strong.  Also, take a look at this accompanying infographic, showing omissions of the most popular evolution books: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/1583603/Natural_Code_popular_evolution_books.pdf Tune in for all the details.

On this ID the Future, ID biologist Michael Behe continues fielding tough questions from philosophers Pat Flynn and Jim Madden. Here in Part 3 of 3, Behe responds to the claim that some designs in biology are bad designs and to criticisms leveled at ID from some Thomists. Also in the mix, the issue of academic pressure to distance oneself from ID, even before those involved understand what the theory of intelligent design actually is. Madden also asks Behe what reforms he’d pursue if he suddenly found himself in charge of the National Academy of Sciences. Tune in to hear Behe's response, and much more.
