It is no secret that most of society’s critical institutions are suffering from a crisis of trust. One of these is science, which heretofore enjoyed the confidence of the vast majority of the American people.
To learn, what happened, whether the loss of confidence is deserved, and what can be done about it, Wesley asked the Director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture to engage the crisis. This is Meyer’s second appearance on Humanize.
Dr. Stephen C. Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge and is a former geophysicist and college professor. He authored Signature in the Cell, which was named a Book of the Year for 2009 by the Times of London, the New York Times best seller, Darwin’s Doubt, and most recently, The Return of the God Hypothesis.
Meyer has also published editorials in national newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The National Post (of Canada), The Daily Telegraph (of London) and The Los Angeles Times. He has appeared on national television and radio programs such as NBC Nightly News, ABC Nightly News, CBS Sunday Morning, Nightline, Fox News Live, Good Morning America and was recently heard by millions of viewers in an extended interview on the Joe Rogan podcast. He has also been featured in two New York Times front-page stories and has garnered attention in other top national media.
In 2008, he appeared with Ben Stein in the theatrical-released documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. He has also been featured prominently in the science documentaries, Icons of Evolution, The Case for a Creator, and Darwin’s Dilemma, which aired on PBS and which Meyer co-wrote with producer Lad Allen.
