Episode 9. Refuting 6 False Popularly Held Scientific Ideas. Dr. Steven Meyer. ACU Sunday Series.   https://youtu.be/PoLwZ5YynZU Refuting 6 False Popularly Held Scientific Ideas.  The New Scientific Evidence that Points to the Existence of God John Ankerberg Show 99.1K subscribers Nov 13, 2022 Return of the God Hypothesis: How do the origin of the universe, the fine-tuning in the universe, and the information in DNA point to God as the creator? Dr. Meyer at Discovery Institute- https://www.discovery.org/p/meyer/ Stephen C. Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge. A former geophysicist and college professor, he now directs Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture in Seattle. He has authored the New York Times best seller Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2013), Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2009), which was named a Book of the Year by the Times (of London) Literary Supplement in 2009, and now, The Return of the God Hypothesis (HarperOne, 2021). In his first book on intelligent design, Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2009) Meyer examined the mystery of the origin of the first life. With Darwin's Doubt, he has expanded the scope of the case for intelligent design to the whole sweep of life's history. Meyer's research addresses the deepest mystery surrounding the origin of life and the origin of animal life: the origin of biological information necessary to produce it. Meyer graduated from Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington, in 1981 with a degree in physics and earth science. He later became a geophysicist with Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) in Dallas, Texas. From 1981 to 1985, he worked for ARCO in digital signal processing and seismic survey interpretation. In 1986 as a Rotary International Scholar, he began his training in the history and philosophy of science at Cambridge University, earning an M.Phil. in 1987 and a Ph.D. in 1991. His doctoral thesis was titled “Of Clues and Causes: A Methodological Interpretation of Origin-of-Life Research.” He returned to Whitworth in the fall of 1990 to teach philosophy and the philosophy of science. He left a tenured position as a professor at Whitworth in 2002 to direct the Center for Science and Culture full time, which he had helped found with John West in 1996. Prior to the publication of Signature in the Cell and Darwin's Doubt, the writing for which Meyer was best known was an August 2004 review essay in the Smithsonian Institution-affiliated peer-reviewed biology journal Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. The article laid out the evidential case for intelligent design, presenting it as the best explanation for the origin of the biological information necessary to produce the new forms of animal life that arose abruptly during the Cambrian explosion. Because the article was the first peer-reviewed publication arguing for intelligent design in a technical journal, it proved extremely controversial.  The journal's editor, evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg, was punished by his Smithsonian supervisors for allowing Meyer's article into print. This led to the investigation of top Smithsonian personnel by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.  The controversy was widely covered in the media with articles or news stories appearing about it in The Wall Street Journal, Science, Nature, NPR, The O'Reilly Factor and the Washington Post. The federal investigation eventually concluded that Sternberg had been wrongly disciplined and intimidated. Meyer's many other publications include contributions to, and the editing of, the peer-reviewed volume Darwinism, Design and Public Education (Michigan State University Press, 2004) and the innovative textbook Explore Evolution (Hill House Publishers, 2007). Meyer has also published editorials in national newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The National Post (of Canada), The Daily Telegraph (of London) and The Los Angeles Times.  He has appeared on national television and radio programs such as The Jim Lehrer News Hour, NBC Nightly News, ABC Nightly News, CBS Sunday Morning, Nightline, Fox News Live, Paula Zahn Now (CNN), Good Morning America and the Tavis Smiley Show on PBS.  He has also been featured in two New York Times front-page stories and has garnered attention in other top national media. In 2008, he appeared with Ben Stein in the theatrical-released documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.  He has also been featured prominently in the science documentaries Icons of Evolution, The Case for a Creator, Darwin's Dilemma and Unlocking The Mystery of Life, the latter which was shown on PBS and which Meyer co-wrote with producer Lad Allen.

Today's episode was recorded in late summer of 2022 at Doug Elliott's home in Appalachia. You'll hear a symphony of crickets and other wildlife in the background as Thomas and Doug discuss his childhood, learning folk methods from 'old timers', as well as the path of learning about and connecting with medicinal plants. We hope you enjoy the wonderful and entertaining stories from our dear and magical friend, Doug Elliott. Introduction song "Dandelion Tips" sung by Doug Elliott. Doug Elliott is a naturalist, herbalist, storyteller, basket maker, back-country guide, philosopher, and harmonica wizard. For many years made his living as a traveling herbalist, gathering and selling herbs, teas, and remedies. He has spent a great deal of time with traditional country folk and indigenous people, learning their stories, folklore and traditional ways of relating to the natural world. In recent years he has performed and presented programs at festivals, museums, botanical gardens, nature centers and schools from Canada to the Caribbean. He has been a featured storyteller at the National Storytelling Festival. He has lectured and performed at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto and conducted workshops for the Smithsonian Institution. He has led ranger training sessions for the National Park Service and guided people on wilderness experiences from down-east Maine to the Florida Everglades. He was named harmonica champion at Fiddler's Grove Festival in Union Grove, N.C. He is the author of five books, many articles in regional and national magazines, has recorded a number of award winning albums of stories and songs, and is occasionally seen on PBS-TV, and the History and National Geographic Channels. In recent years he has received a variety of honors. The National Storytelling Network (the largest storytelling membership organization in the world) inducted him into their Circle of Excellence for “exceptional commitment and exemplary contribution to the art of storytelling.” The International Herb Association presented him with the Otto Richter Award honoring his work with herbs and useful wild plants. The National Association for Interpretation (the professional organization of park rangers, naturalists, museum curators, etc.) gave him the Master Front Line Interpreter Award for his “mastery of interpretive techniques, program development, and design of creative projects” celebrating the natural world and our human connection to nature. Elliott's passion for the natural world developed in early childhood roaming the woods and waters around his home. His dad used to say, “That boy knows what's under every rock between here and town.” He still roams the woods today. He has traveled from the Canadian North to the Central American jungles studying plant and animal life and seeking out the traditional wisdom of people with intimate connections to the natural world. And he still looks under rocks. These days he uncovers more than just a few strange critters; he brings to light the human connection to this vibrant world of which we are a part.

It's also got itself a spot in the Guinness World Records, too!Portions of its profits were donated to Greenpeace, the Rainforest Foundation Fund, and the Sierra Club, as well as a special fund benefiting environmental projects worldwide that was administered by the Smithsonian Institution.This was a movie that fully believed in its mission to help save the environment, and it all started with a mother's bedtime stories to her children in Byron Bay, Australia...

An affirmative approach to aging takes into account that new parts of us are always clamoring for airtime. The soul and spirit don't "retire" even if our careers do, and there's a difference between getting older and growing older.These parts of us could be passions and creative leaps, service projects and leadership roles in the community, a new line of work or an exploration of some non-work modes of expression, or simply rediscovering the sense of wonder and love of learning. They ask us to continually reinvent ourselves and stay close to our deepest sense of passion and purpose.In this episode, we'll explore the nature and nurture of passion as we age - what inspires it and what defeats it, how we lose it, and how we get it back.In this episode, you'll discover:Passion can be cultivated and turned on as well as turned offPassion is in the risk-the willingness to step from the sidelines onto the playing field.Passion breeds passion, and disinterest breeds disinterest. If we lack passion in our own lives, our other relationships will be denied that energy.Passion is more than exuberance; it's endurance.Passion is intimately related to health. To the degree passion is vitality, honoring our passions enhances our vitality.About Gregg Levoy: Gregg Levoy, author of Callings: Finding and Following An Authentic Life (rated among the Top 20 Career Publications by the Workforce Information Group) and Vital Signs: The Nature and Nurture of Passion, is the former behavioral specialist at USA Today and a regular blogger for Psychology Today.He has presented at the International Conference on Positive Aging, Smithsonian Institution, Environmental Protection Agency, Microsoft, American Counseling Association, National Career Development Association, and many others.

As a member of the Zephyr skateboard team in the 1970's -- made  famous by the documentary Dogtown and Z Boys --  Peggy Oki was at the top of the women's skateboarding world while pioneering the vertical skating movement alongside the DogTown crew of Jay Adams, Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta,  as the lone Z-Girl. Peggy is a surfer, skater, rock climber, and visual artist who has adventured between these creative expressions for more than fifty years.  Parallel to living an adventurous life by way of stone and water, Peggy has become a tireless activist for the wellbeing of all beings. Her Origami Whales Project, an installation of 38,000 cascading paper whales, was recently showcased at The Smithsonian Institution. Peggy began the project in 2004 to raise awareness about the potential re-emergence of sanctioned commercial whaling. That number – 38,000 --- represents the approximate number of whales killed since the International Whaling commission's moratorium on whaling in 1986. We caught up with Peggy as she made her way down the Australian coast to chat about adapting surfing for concrete,  the inspiration of Sadako Sasaki's paper cranes, the importance of mindset in injury, and the projects currently capturing her imagination. …Listen with Lauren L.

The New Scientific Evidence that Points to the Existence of God John Ankerberg Show Nov 6, 2022 The Cambrian Information Explosion: What does it take to build new animal life? Dr. Meyer at Discovery Institute- https://www.discovery.org/p/meyer/ Stephen C. Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge. A former geophysicist and college professor, he now directs Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture in Seattle. He has authored the New York Times best seller Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2013), Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2009), which was named a Book of the Year by the Times (of London) Literary Supplement in 2009, and now, The Return of the God Hypothesis (HarperOne, 2021). In his first book on intelligent design, Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2009) Meyer examined the mystery of the origin of the first life. With Darwin's Doubt, he has expanded the scope of the case for intelligent design to the whole sweep of life's history. Meyer's research addresses the deepest mystery surrounding the origin of life and the origin of animal life: the origin of biological information necessary to produce it. Meyer graduated from Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington, in 1981 with a degree in physics and earth science. He later became a geophysicist with Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) in Dallas, Texas. From 1981 to 1985, he worked for ARCO in digital signal processing and seismic survey interpretation. In 1986 as a Rotary International Scholar, he began his training in the history and philosophy of science at Cambridge University, earning an M.Phil. in 1987 and a Ph.D. in 1991. His doctoral thesis was titled “Of Clues and Causes: A Methodological Interpretation of Origin-of-Life Research.” He returned to Whitworth in the fall of 1990 to teach philosophy and the philosophy of science. He left a tenured position as a professor at Whitworth in 2002 to direct the Center for Science and Culture full time, which he had helped found with John West in 1996. Prior to the publication of Signature in the Cell and Darwin's Doubt, the writing for which Meyer was best known was an August 2004 review essay in the Smithsonian Institution-affiliated peer-reviewed biology journal Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. The article laid out the evidential case for intelligent design, presenting it as the best explanation for the origin of the biological information necessary to produce the new forms of animal life that arose abruptly during the Cambrian explosion. Because the article was the first peer-reviewed publication arguing for intelligent design in a technical journal, it proved extremely controversial.  The journal's editor, evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg, was punished by his Smithsonian supervisors for allowing Meyer's article into print. This led to the investigation of top Smithsonian personnel by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.  The controversy was widely covered in the media with articles or news stories appearing about it in The Wall Street Journal, Science, Nature, NPR, The O'Reilly Factor and the Washington Post. The federal investigation eventually concluded that Sternberg had been wrongly disciplined and intimidated. Meyer's many other publications include contributions to, and the editing of, the peer-reviewed volume Darwinism, Design and Public Education (Michigan State University Press, 2004) and the innovative textbook Explore Evolution (Hill House Publishers, 2007). Meyer has also published editorials in national newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The National Post (of Canada), The Daily Telegraph (of London) and The Los Angeles Times.  He has appeared on national television and radio programs such as The Jim Lehrer News Hour, NBC Nightly News, ABC Nightly News, CBS Sunday Morning, Nightline, Fox News Live, Paula Zahn Now (CNN), Good Morning America and the Tavis Smiley Show on PBS.  He has also been featured in two New York Times front-page stories and has garnered attention in other top national media. In 2008, he appeared with Ben Stein in the theatrical-released documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.  He has also been featured prominently in the science documentaries Icons of Evolution, The Case for a Creator, Darwin's Dilemma and Unlocking The Mystery of Life, the latter which was shown on PBS and which Meyer co-wrote with producer Lad Allen.

Today, American Songcatcher is proud to present a special two-part collaboration with Smithsonian Folkways, going behind the curtain of Folkways Records founder Moses Asch, who was born 117 years ago on this date. This is the story of a ceaselessly stubborn Jewish immigrant with unstoppable ambition. A pioneer who had a great respect for creative artists, whether they were commercially viable or not. A provider whose work was selfless, though he was often quite difficult to work with. A visionary that would turn the record industry on its head without producing any major hits, which was just the way he wanted it. Folkways Records, “The little label that could,” changed the course of American roots music by preserving folk songs from all over the world and having a major hand influencing the folk and blues revival of the 50's and 60's. Moe's mission was to create an encyclopedia of sound from around the world, quite literally.

His celebrated Happiest Baby/Happiest Toddler books and videos have guided millions of parents and are translated into 30 languages. He is also the creator of the SNOO Smart Sleeper, a new class of responsive infant bed that adds 1-2 hours to a baby's sleep and has a secure swaddle which prevents rolling to an unsafe position during sleep. SNOO has won 33 international honors, including the National Sleep Foundation Innovation of the Year and is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution as an iconic example of 21st Century form and function. The benefits of SNOO to reduce postpartum depression, SIDS, and help drug exposed babies are being studied at top medical centers. Dr. Karp is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the USC School of Medicine and a fellow of the AAP. He is an advocate for children's environmental health and a board member of EWG, one of the Nation's premiere environmental protection groups.   In this episode, they discuss how parents, especially mothers should be "babied" as much as the new babies when they have a child and how society should go back to the times when there was a "village" of family, friends and neighbours offering support to new mothers. They also discuss the groundbreaking work Dr. Karp leads at Happiest Baby, how SNOO makes the lives of new parents easier and also how employers are providing SNOO as a benefit to their employees and how more employers can come onboard.    This podcast is in partnership with Splendid Spoon.

This November, the gays get their say.     Bros Year: 2022 Written by: Billy Eichner, Nicholas Stoller Director: Nicholas Stoller Stars: Billy Eichner, Luke Macfarlane   Fire Island Year: 2022 Written by: Joel Kim Booster Director: Andrew Ahn Stars: Joel Kim Booster, Bowen Yang, Margaret Cho, Conrad Ricamora, James Scully     Show notes:   “Happy ending… rom com… but also we're gay and we do things a little differently.”   In this episode Lisa and Charles Adrian dig into this year's big gay rom coms, one of which was released in cinemas and one of which was not.   We reference both the 2005 (not 2007) film adaptation (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0414387/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0) and the 1995 BBC TV adaptation (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112130/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_3) of Jane Austin's novel Pride And Prejudice, which you can read about here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pride_and_Prejudice. Charles Adrian also mentions her novel Persuasion (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persuasion_(novel)) and Lisa mentions the film When Harry Met Sally (1989) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098635/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1).   You can find out more about the British band Bros here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bros_(British_band). Debra Messing, for those who do not know, played the eponymous Grace in the series Will And Grace (1998-2006 and 2017-2020), which you can read about here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_%26_Grace.   With regard to LGBTQ+ museum spaces in the US and the UK: there are LGBTQ+ objects and archival materials at the National Museum of American History in Washington DC (https://americanhistory.si.edu/topics/lgbtq-history) and an aspiration to create a separate LGBTQ+ museum within the Smithsonian Institution at some point in the future (https://www.theartnewspaper.com/2022/10/05/smithsonian-lgbtq-museum-bills-introduced-mark-pocan). In London, meanwhile, there is now a dedicated LGBTQ+ museum called Queer Britain (https://queerbritain.org.uk/).   Next month, much to Lisa's disgust, we will watch The Holiday (2006) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0457939/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0).   We record these episodes over the internet.

Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge. A former geophysicist and college professor, he now directs Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture in Seattle. He has authored the New York Times best seller Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2013), Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2009), which was named a Book of the Year by the Times (of London) Literary Supplement in 2009, and now, The Return of the God Hypothesis (HarperOne, 2021). In his first book on intelligent design, Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2009) Meyer examined the mystery of the origin of the first life. With Darwin's Doubt, he has expanded the scope of the case for intelligent design to the whole sweep of life's history. Meyer's research addresses the deepest mystery surrounding the origin of life and the origin of animal life: the origin of biological information necessary to produce it. Meyer graduated from Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington, in 1981 with a degree in physics and earth science. He later became a geophysicist with Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) in Dallas, Texas. From 1981 to 1985, he worked for ARCO in digital signal processing and seismic survey interpretation. In 1986 as a Rotary International Scholar, he began his training in the history and philosophy of science at Cambridge University, earning an M.Phil. in 1987 and a Ph.D. in 1991. His doctoral thesis was titled “Of Clues and Causes: A Methodological Interpretation of Origin-of-Life Research.” He returned to Whitworth in the fall of 1990 to teach philosophy and the philosophy of science. He left a tenured position as a professor at Whitworth in 2002 to direct the Center for Science and Culture full time, which he had helped found with John West in 1996. Prior to the publication of Signature in the Cell and Darwin's Doubt, the writing for which Meyer was best known was an August 2004 review essay in the Smithsonian Institution-affiliated peer-reviewed biology journal Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. The article laid out the evidential case for intelligent design, presenting it as the best explanation for the origin of the biological information necessary to produce the new forms of animal life that arose abruptly during the Cambrian explosion. Because the article was the first peer-reviewed publication arguing for intelligent design in a technical journal, it proved extremely controversial.  The journal's editor, evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg, was punished by his Smithsonian supervisors for allowing Meyer's article into print. This led to the investigation of top Smithsonian personnel by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.  The controversy was widely covered in the media with articles or news stories appearing about it in The Wall Street Journal, Science, Nature, NPR, The O'Reilly Factor and the Washington Post. The federal investigation eventually concluded that Sternberg had been wrongly disciplined and intimidated. Meyer's many other publications include contributions to, and the editing of, the peer-reviewed volume Darwinism, Design and Public Education (Michigan State University Press, 2004) and the innovative textbook Explore Evolution (Hill House Publishers, 2007). Meyer has also published editorials in national newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The National Post (of Canada), The Daily Telegraph (of London) and The Los Angeles Times.  He has appeared on national television and radio programs such as The Jim Lehrer News Hour, NBC Nightly News, ABC Nightly News, CBS Sunday Morning, Nightline, Fox News Live, Paula Zahn Now (CNN), Good Morning America and the Tavis Smiley Show on PBS.  He has also been featured in two New York Times front-page stories and has garnered attention in other top national media. In 2008, he appeared with Ben Stein in the theatrical-released documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.  He has also been featured prominently in the science documentaries Icons of Evolution, The Case for a Creator, Darwin's Dilemma and Unlocking The Mystery of Life, the latter which was shown on PBS and which Meyer co-wrote with producer Lad Allen.
