Stephen Meyer on the Dennis Miller program

In an interview on the Dennis Miller program, Dr. Stephen Meyer discusses the doubts that Charles Darwin expressed about his own theory, particularly a weakness arising from the sudden appearance of diverse, complex, and insufficiently connected life forms in the Cambrian layer of the fossil record. Meyer also clarifies the distinction between creationism and the theory of intelligent design. Stephen Read More ›

The Sterility of Darwinism

As it struggles to comprehend nature, science sometimes has to completely re-think how the world works. For example, Newton’s laws apply to everyday objects but can’t handle nature’s tiny building blocks. Propelled by this discovery, quantum mechanics overthrew Newton’s theory. Revolutions in biology have included the cell theory of life in the 19th century, as well as the slow realization Read More ›
