The Galileo myth posits that the great astronomer’s story illustrates the near-inevitable conflict between science and religion — or “faith and fact.” As science historian Michael Keas explains, the story is actually more complicated, nuanced, and interesting than the myth would have it. In Unbelievable, Professor Keas explores seven myths about the history of science and faith. It’s a great read. Read More ›
This long awaited sequel to Unlocking the Mystery of Life explores one of the most important and challenging questions faced by science: How did life on Earth begin? Origin effectively confronts scientific materialism and the belief that life is the product of undirected processes, matter and energy. Instead, the origin of the first life is best explained by intelligent design Read More ›
In a short excerpt from the TrueU lecture series, Dr. Stephen Meyer remarks on cosmology and worldview.
Is there evidence for a designed universe? consider:
1. Whatever begins to exist has a cause that is beyond itself.
2. The universe began to exist.
3. Therefore, the universe has a cause that is beyond itself.
Are you ready for these three steps and what is found beyond? Read More ›
Stephen Hawking declared that our understanding of physics proves God did not create the universe. Is he right? Stephen Hawking holds the chair of mathematics at Cambridge University once held by Sir Isaac Newton. So when he declared that our understanding of physics shows that God did not create the universe, it was bound to get attention. Summarizing the thesis Read More ›
Intelligent design (ID) is a scientific theory that employs the methods commonly used by other historical sciences to conclude that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection. ID theorists argue that design can be inferred by studying the informational properties of natural objects Read More ›
Although much of the public controversy over intelligent design has centered on biology and Darwinian evolution, the evidence for intelligent design goes far beyond biology. There’s especially intriguing evidence of design in cosmology, physics, and astronomy. To say that ID has merit in cosmology and physics, I mean that there is positive evidence for ID in those parts of nature Read More ›
Introduction What is implied by the concept of “an intelligently designed universe”? What does it mean on a grand scale to assert that the universe is the product of an intelligent designer? In a scientific age that exalts rationalism and chance, what empirical evidence could possibly support such a claim? As humans contemplating the immense complexity of the cosmos, might Read More ›
