Current Topics in Science

Current Topics in Science

Scientific research can take years, even decades, to become published. Once published in the media, scientific research gives way to scientific reporting. Because of the fast-past nature of reporting, it can be easy to simply accept the evolutionary notions that are left unchallenged. This podcast addresses breaking scientific news in light of the origins debate, and host interviews with scientists.

A team of scientists from the University of Waterloo has just created PLANT ROBOTS that will be used perform medical tasks and make deliveries. This stunning innovative design is bringing old and new technology to the forefront and is revolutionizing healthcare. But, the question is begged, if scientists looked to plants to design plant-bots, are plants themselves intelligently designed? This podcast episode explores the amazing fe...

The Journal of Current Biology has just announced something — something truly astounding! They have made the stunning move and have claimed that dinosaurs and human ancestors must have coexisted. In other words, it seems like the evolutionary timeline is getting more and more Biblical as new data comes in! But what if we take this a step further...is there evidence that modern humans and dinosaurs lived concurrently? Listen to this...

If you're interested in learning about Quantum Mechanics, this interview is for you! In fact, the argument about God's existence has spanned millennia, and now the field of Quantum Mechanics settles the matter once and for all. The argument from physics is undeniably powerful evidence for God...in fact you could go from physics to God! That's what Rabbi Aaron Zimmer's podcast is all about.

You've seen the meme: ALIENS. Indeed, they always seem to be the answer to life's problems, but what if we could ask an ET a question? Scientists have now developed new technology to locate ETs. Will we find intelligent life? On that note, did Intelligent Design play a role in the making of the universe and life on this planet? SETI and Intelligent Design have an interesting relationship and this podcast covers the interplay betwee...

There was a Global Flood and Ancient History proves it! Nick Liguori, who studied anthropology and engineering, not only answers common scientific and theological objections to the Flood, but he shares NEW historical findings that prove that the Global Flood happened, all around the world from places like Asia to Oceania. He addresses local flood views, like those advocated by Dr. Hugh Ross, and addresses questions like, "What happ...

Dr. TJ Gentry is tackling one of the most important question in this interview. Are Humans made in God's image, or are they simply animals? The purely secular version of Evolutionary Psychology has an entirely different view of Humans from what the Bible teaches, which one is right? Dr. Gentry addresses the latest evidence for evolutionary psychology and shows why the evidence points to a design-based framework. If you're someone w...

This is the grand finale of season 5! That's why this episode of Current Topics in Science has 5 in-person interviews! Dr. Stephen Meyer, Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez, Dr. Casey Luskin, Dr. Brian Miller, and Dr. Bijan Nemati all answer the question: "What is the best evidence for Intelligent Design from your field?" These answers are great to put to memory for when you dialogue with skeptics of ID or people who are curious about learning...

Evolutionary theory, is it going extinct? Only the evidence can tell. That evidence would include brand new dinosaur fossil finds, including more discoveries of dinosaur soft-tissue tissue, over 100 to be exact. That's right there are multiple evidences of soft-tissue, but that's not all. In this interview, besides answering objections to soft tissue finds, Dr. Thomas reviews the new discovery of a dinosaur being attacked by a mamm...

ZOMBIES are real! They are also evidence for Creation. Yes, so called "Zombie" bacteria and viruses have been found and some of them have been dated to being 8 million years in age! Is that the case, or does the evidence show that these Zombies are actually God's Creation? Find out how these Zombie bugs are evidence for the Creation model!

With the new film on the atom bomb in theaters now, it only makes sense to interview a nuclear physicist. Dr. Clausen is that nuclear physicist and he is talking about the latest ideas in physic, including a possible fifth force of the universe! What does this mean for believers in God? Dr. Clausen discusses the fine tuning of the universe and life; which points to the reality of Intelligent Design. You'll not want to miss this one...

Space-traveling ants? Any engineer knows a good blueprint when they see one; the design of the ant is no exception. Ants are capable of marvelous feats, including retooling their work process in space!!! NASA sent ants to space to study how they would coordinate themselves and the results were incredible! Back here on Earth, leaf-cutter ants and Sahara ants have their own incredible designs and are capable of amazing feats of stren...

The undercover researcher is back and he has even more peer-reviewed evidence that the flagellum was designed. Working under the pseudonym David Thomas, he is now summarizing the results of his research here on Current Topics in Science in less than 10 questions! He is also the creator of two AI chatbots for Christians and he offers his expertise on the current on going discussion about AI. It doesn't get any more current than this...

Dr. James Tour took part in a DEBATE this may at Rice University. However, was the evidence he presented accurate? In this interview, Dr. Miller looks at the evidence presented by Dave Farina and the evidence presented by Dr. Tour and evaluates who's case was left standing when the dust settled! Watch this debate review!

The debate has gone viral, but was Dr. James Tour right? He presented several challenges to origin of life theories, and described how these challenges point to utter cluelessness on the matter of how abiogenesis happened. Dr. Sarfati, a PhD chemist who has published in the journal Nature, will be reviewing the points Dr. Tour raised in the debate. He also has evidence of his own he believes needs to be brought into the discussion....

God is not needed! Or, at least that is what Professor Stephen Hawking has to say. He has theories of gravity and time that he believes render God, not just unnecessary, but impossible! Dr. Ken Caviness addresses the arguments of Hawking and explores various "theories of everything." If you are not into learning, this video is not for you! If you are eager to learn something new, check out what Dr. Caviness has to say!

Science vs Scientism is a discussion that needs to be be had in the origins debate. All sides each claim that the "science" is clearly on their side, but what exactly does "science" mean? Ben, whose graduate degree is in the relationship between science and faith, is here to explain the difference between science and scientism, dispel revisionist history myths about science, and show which worldviews are compatible with science. Ha...

This interview explores evidence most people involved in the origins debate don't get the chance to hear. He delves into the realms of mathematics and explores the science of computers! Evolution is rendered false by proof by contradiction! Explore these facts and have your mind and heart touched too!

Dr. Winston Ewert had his faith challenged. He was raised in a Christian home, with a keen scientific interest, and was told to read Professor Dawkins' book, "The Blind Watchmaker" where Dawkins uses a computer algorithm to simulate evolution. Dr. Ewert, an expert in computers himself, reviews the evolutionary computer algorithms, and explains computer algorithms that make testable predictions for ID that have already been publishe...
