Biologist Michael Denton’s new book, The Miracle of the Cell, considers the scientific evidence for intelligent design from a new perspective and at a new level. As with his previous books, it’s a more fundamental view than that of all other ID literature.
Here, Denton discusses his new book The Miracle of the Cell with Eric Anderson in this Zoom event from Discovery Institute in which people from around the world submitted questions to Dr. Denton. Denton makes the case that the directionality to the evolution of the universe was foreseen — intended — from the Big Bang. Or rather, from before it, because the design was actualized right away. Since there was no nature and no time before the universe came into being, it follows that the design must be of that a transcendent mind, the “finger of God,” as Denton puts it.
