Here are some previous Think Tank programs that may be of interest.

Intelligent Design vs. Evolution, Part Two  (aired 5/3/2007)
In recent years Charles Darwin’s explanation of evolution through natural selection has been challenged by an alternative theory called Intelligent Design. A growing number of science teachers and school boards are struggling with how to present students with the facts. Even acknowledging the existence of an argument has become controversial. How should students learn the history of life on this planet? Are Christianity and other major religions incompatible with Darwinian evolution? Is there any evidence to support the new theory of intelligent design? Can ID and Darwin find common ground?

21st Century Science, Part Two  (aired 11/24/2005)
Human cloning, stem-cell research, global warming, and so-called “Intelligent Design” are only a few of the countless issues that seem to intertwine science, morality, commerce, and politics. Where is the balance? What is the role of the government in guiding scientific discovery?

21st Century Science, Part One  (aired 11/17/2005)
In the 21st century, scientific advances may help people live longer lives, be smarter, stronger, and even happier. Most every day we hear about designer babies, miracle cures, you name it — thanks mostly to genetic engineering. But despite the promised benefits, some opponents believe science is going too far and should be strictly regulated. Politics intervene. What are the moral and ethical controversies surrounding genetic science?

What Do We Know About the Bible?  (aired 4/17/2003)
Recently an Israeli antiquities collector revealed the existence of a stone artifact inscribed with the words "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus." The discovery set off a storm of controversy among archeologists, historians, and biblical scholars. What is science - once the scourge of religion - now telling us about the people and culture of Biblical times? Can the Bible serve as both a book of religious faith as well as historical facts?
