Wrong about lots of things, but still very interesting!

This podcast is fascinating for me, an atheist with a degree in biochemistry and a strong belief in Darwinian evolution. They really don't seem to expect someone like me to be listening, so it's interesting to hear how they talk about Darwinian evolution and the "evolutionists" who believe in it. They are somewhat dismissive of us at times, but I find their tone to be more respectful than that of the many evolutionists who dismiss all ID proponents as idiots that don't know anything about science.

Let's be clear: the people on this podcast may be wrong, but they aren't idiots. In fact, I think they make some very reasonable arguments about scientific dogma, academic freedom, science funding, science publication, etc.

I very much doubt they will convince me that intelligent design is true (I don't find the evidence compelling), but I'll continue to listen with an open mind. And if nothing else, for those of us who believe in evolution, this podcast can help inform us what parts of evolutionary theory we need to do a better job teaching in our schools and explaining to the general public.

Finally, you have to admire the persistence and dedication of the people that produce this podcast. Every few days they've got a new segment and they often discuss recently published research papers. If evolution researchers and science educators want to convince the next generation that evolution is true, they're going to have to be just as persistent. I'd love to hear a podcast on the latest research in evolution (without it being filtered through the prism of intelligent design), but as far as I know, nobody is making one. In the meantime, I'll continue to listen to this with an open mind and a healthy dose of skepticism.

Dogma begone

Searching for truth in today’s education system is very difficult. These podcasts give insight into information you will never hear from liberal humanist educators. Challenge yourself and what you have been taught, you will be surprised at what reality actually looks like.

Top notch

They constantly do podcasts on the latest developments on Darwinism and discuss both the strengths and weaknesses of Darwin's theory.
