How Science Stopped Backing Atheists and Started Pointing Back to God

Far from pointing to "blind, pitiless indifference," the great discoveries of the last century point to the exquisite design of life and the universe and, arguably, to an intelligent creator behind it all. Read More ›

Darwin’s Rhetorical Foundation of Sand: Theological Utilitarianism

On this ID the Future, biophysicist Cornelius Hunter explores Charles Darwin’s theological arguments for his theory of evolution. By theological, Hunter doesn’t mean that Darwin was arguing for theistic evolution. He means that Darwin received what is known as theological utilitarianism from the intellectual culture of his youth, which had strong deistic tendencies. Read More ›

Stephen Meyer On Science and Faith at PragerU

1. Are Religion and Science in Conflict? Atheist thinkers insist there can be no peace between a scientific understanding of reality, and religious one. History, however, shows that the rise of science drew deeply on Judeo-Christian presuppositions, without which we would be both spiritually and scientifically far poorer. 2. How Did the Universe Begin? Some scientists, including Albert Einstein, fought Read More ›

Stephen Meyer Interviewed by Michael Medved

Stephen Meyer on the Return of the God Hypothesis

Biology reveals evidence of design, Dr. Stephen Meyer explains in this conversation with Michael Medved, but it can’t take us very far in identifying the source of that design. Proponents of intelligent design have been clear about that. For an idea about who or what the designer might be, you need to turn to other scientific fields — physics and cosmology Read More ›

Do the Laws of Physics Make God Unnecessary?

Seattle – In his best-selling book The Grand Design (2010), renowned physicist Stephen Hawking advanced the startling claim that the laws of physics make God unnecessary for the creation of the universe. Friday, August 19th Oxford University Mathematics Professor John Lennox will respond based on his book God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway? Regarded by some as Read More ›

Atheist Antithesis

It is fashionable to note that there is nothing new in the “New Atheism” of Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, et. al. However, they offer at least one genuinely new challenge to theistic belief: a challenge from developmental and cognitive psychology. Evolutionary biologists typically explain an organism’s existing traits-such as man’s propensity for religious belief-by reference to natural selection; existing traits Read More ›

Delusions of Grandeur

The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensionsby David Berlinski Crown Forum, 237 pages, $23.95 It is at once lamentable and understandable that academics, wishing applause from other academics, proffer far-fetched theses. After all, no one receives applause (or tenure) with commonsensical hypotheses. When supposedly divined from capital-S “Science,” however, such theses are taken all too seriously. David Berlinski’s The Read More ›

Shedding the Galileo Complex

God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?By John LennoxLion Hudson, 192 pages, $14.99 A friend recently put it to me that the Church has a Galileo Complex. Terrified by the historical narrative of the Church’s resistance to and persecution of science, Christians are averse to challenging “scientific” claims. “Complex” is an apt description, too: a group of unconscious impressions, not a Read More ›
