God’s Footprints: Science Makes Faith Plausible, Not Impossible

Andrew Klavan’s reference to the popular Bell Curve Meme calls to my mind a particularly provocative version of that Meme, in which the three figures representing the different levels of insight and intelligence address the relationship between science and belief in God. The dullard on the left-hand tail of the curve says, “don’t listen to science, all the answers come from God.” The representative of conventional wisdom sitting at the top of the curve says, “God isn’t real. You should trust the science.” But then, as in all versions of the meme, a twist occurs. The jedi-savant figure at the extreme right-hand tail of the curve reaffirms the existence of God because of, not in spite of, what science has Read More ›

NASA To Launch Telescope Stronger Than Hubble That Can See Back In Time

During the winter holidays, Jews celebrate a miraculous, unquenchable light and Christians celebrate the incarnation of God revealed by the light of a star. It’s fitting, therefore, that on December 22 NASA will launch a new satellite capable of seeing the first starlight from just after the Big Bang—a light, and an event, that tell us about the creation of the universe and, in their own ways, reveal God to the world.  NASA’s new James Webb Space Telescope will be carried into space this week from French Guiana on the back of an Ariane 5 rocket. The $10 billion, 21-foot telescope features a massive umbrella-like sun shield. It also boasts 15 times the range of motion and six times the Read More ›

Meyer Discusses Harvard’s Atheist Chaplain and the “Twilight of the Godless Universe” on the Michael Medved Show

There’s often a lag time between the formation of ideas at the scholarly and scientific level and the dissemination of those ideas into the broader culture. On the Michael Medved show, Stephen Meyer explains how the appointment of an atheist chaplain at Harvard is an outcome of a lingering cultural perception about science and religion—even though this perception is incongruous with major developments in science. In addition, Medved prompts Meyer to explain his recent op-ed, published in The Jerusalem Post: “Steven Weinberg and the Twilight of the Godless Universe.” Be sure to listen to this nice, compact interview!
