Today’s ID the Future podcast is Part 3 of a conversation between Rice University chemist and inventor James Tour and Brian Miller, research coordinator for Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. Download the podcast or listen to it here.

In this concluding portion of their conversation, Miller fields questions Tour pulls from his mailbag. They cover everything from how simple can a cell get and still survive and reproduce to questions of design detection, bouncing cosmologies, the possibility of alien life, and the similarities between computers and cells in how they process information.
