On a new episode of ID the Future, mathematician and philosopher William Dembski talks with host Eric Anderson about a revised and updated edition of Dembski’s pioneering 1998 Cambridge University Press book, The Design Inference. Dembski says he stands by that work and his early contributions to intelligent design theory, but adds that he has learned a lot more in the intervening years, particularly from his work with Robert J. Marks and Winston Ewert at the Evolutionary Informatics Lab. Lessons from that and other research, Dembski explains, will enrich the new edition. What light do these design-detecting methods shed on modern evolutionary theory? To find out, download the podcast or listen to it here.

Listening to the Dembski interview. First comment so far. Bridge is a much more complicated and intellectual game than Chess. It’s much more fun and the variations are almost endless but it requires communication with a partner and deception with the opponents besides intricate card playing skills. It’s very addictive and can cause a lot of anger because success takes two people to excel. jerry
