The Return of the God Hypothesis


by
Stephen Meyer June 28, 2015


Presented at:
SCL Conference 2015

ABSTRACT:

Has modern science proved that God is a delusion? Is it still rational to believe in God in the 21st century? Join philosopher of science Dr. Stephen Meyer as he discusses a series of revolutionary scientific discoveries that point to the reality of God. Meyer, who is known for his groundbreaking work on the evidence for intelligent design in biology, demonstrates how discoveries in astronomy and physics as well as biology help to establish the identity of the intelligent designer responsible for life. Meyer argues that a traditional theistic worldview— with its affirmation of a transcendent and personal God -- best explains the evidence we have concerning the origin of life and the universe. Come hear Dr. Meyer explain why it’s an exciting time to be a scientist and a person of faith.

Stephen Meyer, senior fellow with the Discovery Institute and author of the recent, highly acclaimed book Darwin’s Doubt. Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge. A former geophysicist and college professor, he now directs Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture in Seattle. He has authored the New York Times best seller Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2013) as well as Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2009), which was named a Book of the Year by the Times (of London) Literary Supplement in 2009. He received WORLD Magazine’s Daniel of the Year Award in 2009. Dr. Meyer examines the depth of digital technology found in living cells and develops an argument for intelligent design as the best explanation for the information at the heart of life. Dr. Meyer has modeled an innovative way of teaching science in which he exposes students to arguments about competing scientific theories as a way of advancing scientific education, which approach comports well with the classical model.
