We’re Still Clueless about the Origin of Life

Organisms have well-defined molecular assemblies, redox potentials across membranes, and metabolic pathways — all operating in exquisite states that we call “life.”  Chemistry, by contrast, is utterly indifferent to whether anything is alive or not. Without a biologically derived entity acting upon them, molecules have never been shown to “evolve” toward life. Never. While organisms exploit chemistry for their own Read More ›

Does Darwinian Evolution Disprove the Existence of God? Stephen Meyer on The Ben Shapiro Show

On this short but informative interview on KTTH’s The Ben Shapiro Show, Dr. Stephen Meyer discusses the compatibility of science and religion and explains why intelligent design provides a more satisfying explanation of the evidence than the neo-Darwinian selection/mutation mechanism. Meyer also outlines arguments raised by his new book Darwin’s Doubt. More information is available at www.DarwinsDoubt.com.

A Cosmological Argument for God’s Existence, pt. 4

A Cosmological Argument for God’s Existence, pt. 4

In this special series of The John Ankerberg Show, Dr. Stephen Meyer presents a cosmological argument for God’s existence. In part 4, Dr. Meyer summarizes new evidence from cosmology showing the universe had a beginning and is finely tuned for life on Earth to exist. He also presents theism as the worldview best explained by the scientific evidence. Videos posted Read More ›
