Stephen Meyer, Director of the Center for Science and Culture, is scheduled to speak at the upcoming National Conference on Christian Apologetics presented by Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, NC. The theme this year — Why Truth Still Matters — will feature a variety of sessions from scientists, philosophers, and theologians. Dr. Meyer’s sessions are listed below, and a full line-up of speakers and sessions can be found at https://conference.ses.edu/.
Saturday, October 12 | 11:15 am – 12:10 pm
In this presentation, Dr. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding the “Cambrian explosion” of animal life in the fossil record — a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been found, but because scientists have learned more about what it takes to construct an animal (most notably, information). Meyer will show that the origin of this information, as well as other mysterious features of the Cambrian event, are best explained by intelligent design, rather than purely undirected evolutionary processes.
Return of the God Hypothesis
Saturday, October 12 | 1:45 pm – 2:30 pm
Has modern science proved that God is a delusion? Is it still rational to believe in God in the 21st century? Dr. Meyer will discuss a series of revolutionary scientific discoveries that point to the reality of God, demonstrating how these discoveries help to establish the identity of the intelligent designer responsible for life. Meyer will argue 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.
