A Seattle Centurions Conference Featuring Discovery Institute Senior Fellow, Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, October 26th at Northwest University.
While the dominant culture and the media elite work to instill a relativist message in society, vocal opposition to religious belief from the new atheists is becoming entrenched in academia. Claiming that science is on the side of unbelief and a host of liberal values, professors from community colleges to the Ivy League are working to tear down traditional values.
Recent findings in the physical and biological sciences, as well as mathematical probabilities, provide a compelling case against the common argument that belief in God is "just a blind leap of faith." Best-selling author Steven C. Meyer will compare some of the predominant worldviews of our day, examining responses to the fundamental worldview question “Where did we come from?” and discussing the real-world impact of how one answers these age-old questions.
Stephen C. Meyer is director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (CSC) and a founder both of the intelligent design (ID) movement and of the CSC, intelligent design’s primary intellectual and scientific headquarters. Dr. Meyer is a Cambridge University-trained philosopher of science, the author of peer-reviewed publications in technical, scientific, philosophical and other books and journals. He is the author of The New York Times best seller Darwin’s Doubt The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2013). Meyer’s research goes to the very source of the mystery of life: its origin, and more specifically the origin of biological information. His research and writings in the field represent the cutting edge of the argument for intelligent design.
