Why did modern science start in the place and time it did? What was the X Factor needed to generate our modern concept of scientific inquiry? In this short clip, Dr. Stephen Meyer describes the third of three Judeo-Christian ideas that helped usher in the age of modern science.
This is the official YouTube page of Dr. Stephen Meyer, director of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge. His latest book is Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries that Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe (2021), see https://returnofthegodhypothesis.com/.
Praise for Return of the God Hypothesis:
“This book makes it clear that far from being an unscientific claim, intelligent design is valid science.”
BRIAN JOSEPHSON, NOBEL LAUREATE IN PHYSICS; FELLOW OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY; EMERITUS PROFESSOR OF PHYSICS, UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE
Meyer is also the author of The New York Times best selling book Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the case for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2013), and Signature In The Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (2009).

“No one else in my experience can explicate such complex material with the grace and clarity that seem so effortless to Stephen Meyer. With cold logic and meticulous rational analysis of the latest discoveries in cosmology, physics, and biology, Meyer confirms a truth that the ideologues find too frightening even to consider. By the ad hominem nature of their attacks on his brilliant work, they confirm its importance and suggest an eventual end to the scientism that warps our culture.”
