On a new episode of ID the Future, host Andrew McDiarmid interviews Dr. Robert Alston, an electrical engineer working at Picatinny Arsenal and co-author of the new book Evolution and Intelligent Design in a Nutshell. The two discuss the origin of the Nutshell book and the origin and fine-tuning of the universe. Though cosmic fine-tuning is often referred to as “the fine-tuning problem,” Alston says it’s really no problem at all — not unless you’re trying to shoehorn it into the box of philosophical materialism. Download the podcast or listen to it here.
