Darwin’s Doubt presented by Dr. Stephen Meyer

When Charles Darwin finished The Origin of Species, he thought that he had explained every clue, but one. Though his theory could explain many facts, Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. During this event, the “Cambrian explosion,” many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. In this presentation, Dr. Stephen Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life—a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been found, but because scientists have learned more about what it takes to construct an animal. During the last half century, biologists have come to appreciate the central importance of biological information—stored in DNA and elsewhere in cells—to building animal forms. Meyer will show that the origin of this information, as well as other mysterious features of the Cambrian event, are best explained by intelligent design, rather than purely undirected evolutionary processes.

The Return Of The God Hypothesis presented by Dr. Stephen Meyer

Has modern science proved that God is a delusion? Is it still rational to believe in God in the 21st century? Join philosopher of science Dr. Stephen Meyer as he discusses a series of revolutionary scientific discoveries that point to the reality of God. Known for his groundbreaking work on the evidence for intelligent design in biology, Meyer demonstrates how discoveries in astronomy and physics as well as biology help to establish the identity of the intelligent designer responsible for life. Meyer argues that a traditional theistic worldview — with its affirmation of a transcendent and personal God -- best explains the evidence we have concerning the origin of life and the universe. Come hear Dr. Meyer explain why it’s an exciting time to be a scientist and a person of faith.
