In this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and CSC Senior Fellow Dr. Jonathan Wells discuss the connections to intelligent design in the new movie Man of Steel. While the story of Superman may be fantasy, it centers on real scientific matters such as genetic manipulation and information storage inside the cell.
A petition urging the Obama administration to ban the teaching of creation and intelligent design in U.S. schools was recently filed on the White House website.
The 116-word petition claims that even though Darwinian evolution is "treated as scientific fact by 99.9% of all scientists," some schools still erroneously give credence to the "controversy" of non-evolutionary theories.
"[Creationism and intelligent design] have no basis in scientific fact," the petition claims, "and have absolutely zero evidence pointing towards these conjectures. These types of loopholes in our education are partially to blame for our dangerously low student performances in math and science. Therefore, we petition the Obama Adminstration [sic] to ban the teachings of these conjectures that contradict evolution."
Since the petition was posted on June 15th, well over 30,000 people have signed the measure.
This year, ORIGINS 2013 (the joint meeting of the Creation Biology Society and the Creation Geology Society) will be meeting in Pittsburgh, PA, a day prior to the International Conference on Creationism. Because of this year's ICC, the ORIGINS conference is condensed to a single day, and Dr. Steve Austin is also leading a geology field trip.
Casey Luskin reports in ENV...with Stephen Meyer's new book, Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design, out this week and catching some noteworthy attention, recent articles in leading scientific journals are confirming some of his key arguments about the Cambrian explosion. The two arguments I have in mind are: (1) that the Cambrian explosion was a real event in the history of life, and (2) that standard unguided evolutionary theories have failed to explain it.

Evolution has become a favorite topic of the news media recently, but for some reason, they never seem to get the story straight. The staff at Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture started this Blog to set the record straight and make sure you knew "the rest of the story".
A blogger from New England offers his intelligent reasoning.
We are a group of individuals, coming from diverse backgrounds and not speaking for any organization, who have found common ground around teleological concepts, including intelligent design. We think these concepts have real potential to generate insights about our reality that are being drowned out by political advocacy from both sides. We hope this blog will provide a small voice that helps rectify this situation.

Intelligent Design The Future is a multiple contributor weblog whose participants include the nation's leading design scientists and theorists: biochemist Michael Behe, mathematician William Dembski, astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, philosophers of science Stephen Meyer, and Jay Richards, philosopher of biology Paul Nelson, molecular biologist Jonathan Wells, and science writer Jonathan Witt. Posts will focus primarily on the intellectual issues at stake in the debate over intelligent design, rather than its implications for education or public policy.
