This episode of ID the Future features the second and concluding part of a talk given by Stephen Meyer at the 2019 Dallas Science and Faith Conference. Picking up from his previous comments on how atheistic/materialistic assumptions have come to dominate much of the science community. That’s the bad news. The good news, Meyer says, is the the discovery of multiple lines of scientfic evidence with theism-friendly implications, including confirmation that our universe had a beginning, a development “anticipated by no one except the theologians,” in the words of astronomer Robert Jastrow. Materialistic atheism can’t effectively explain where that finely tuned Big Bang came from, but “Let there be light” — God’s first words in Genesis — provides a great explanation. Meyer offers this and other lines of evidence for theism in this talk, drawn from his upcoming book, The Return of the God Hypothesis, now available for pre-order at Amazon.
