Stephen Meyer’s Next Frontier: The Return of the God Hypothesis

Stephen Meyer

Steve Meyer is well known as a leading proponent of intelligent design, the scientific alternative to theories of unguided biological evolution. He talks here about his exciting and important next book.

It’s a new episode of Great Minds with Michael Medved, as our friend Mr. Medved chats with the Cambridge University-trained philosopher of science about the new frontier in the origins debate. The video and audio versions of the show are up now at the Great Minds website.

Biology reveals evidence of design, Dr. Meyer explains, but it can’t take us very far in identifying the source of that design. Proponents of intelligent design, including Meyer in his books Signature in the Celland the New York Times bestseller Darwin’s Doubt, have been clear about that. For an idea about who or what the designer might be, you need to turn to other scientific fields — physics and cosmology — that consider the ultra-finely tuned laws that permit a livable planet in the first place. The awesome design extends from the origin of the universe, down to the tiniest particles. Actually, to call it “awesome” is a gross understatement.

The Source of the Design

Meyer here sketches the persuasive evidence for theism. A 20-minute conversation permits only a sketch. And of course this is still well short of identifying the designer with any particular religion’s concept of a divine being, whether Christianity, Judaism, or any other. Still, Meyer is ready to advance the discussion of why life exists to a whole new level.

Meyer directs Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. The Return of the God Hypothesis is only a working title, and the book is still in progress. But those of us who have followed our colleague Steve Meyer’s writing and research know this will be an explosive work. This is your first opportunity to preview the direction it will take.

As Michael mentions, Great Minds is a production of Discovery Institute and we hope you’ll contribute to keep great programming like this coming! You can do so here.
