Stand to Reason: A Discussion of Reasoning and Evidence for the God Hypothesis

Greg Koukl welcomed Dr. Stephen Meyer back to the Stand to Reason podcast to chat about his new book, recently named a Book of the Year by WORLD Magazine. The power of the theistic design hypothesis, says Meyer, comes from bringing several classes of evidence together to bear on the problems of the origin of life and the universe. Meyer also discusses why he uses the word “Return” in the book’s title, what type of reasoning is best to evaluate multiple competing hypotheses, how he makes his argument for a specifically theistic designer, and more! Listen to the full hour now:

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!

The Power Hour: Stephen Meyer on the Consequences of a Culture that Forgets God

On a recent episode of radio show The Power Hour, Dr. Stephen Meyer talks about his latest book Return of the God Hypothesis with guest host Karen Kataline. Along the way, they discuss the consequences of a culture that adopts a no-god society. Is there a scientific basis for God today? What is the evidence for the activity of mind in nature? What is the relationship between creativity and freedom? What ideas in our culture are downstream from the issue of the existence of God? Listen to this thought-provoking chat revealing why Dr. Meyer’s book Return of the God Hypothesis is so timely and so needed in this current moment in history.

A Conversation with NPR’s Dr. Alan Campbell on Watching America

In this episode of Watching America, Meyer talks about his book, "Return of the God Hypothesis." While intellectuals in the 19th century began insisting that science and religion were in a never-ending war, Meyer details three modern scientific discoveries with decidedly theistic implications.

The God Hypothesis Unplugged with Hank Hanegraaff

Beginning in the late 19th century, many intellectuals began to insist that scientific knowledge conflicts with traditional theistic belief — that science and belief in God are “at war.” In Return of the God Hypothesis, Stephen Meyer argues that theism — with its affirmation of a transcendent, intelligent and active creator — best explains the evidence we have concerning biological and cosmological origins. Previously Meyer refrained from attempting to answer questions about “who” might have designed life. Now he provides an evidence-based answer to perhaps the ultimate mystery of the universe. The results? Meyer reveals a stunning conclusion: the data support not just the existence of an intelligent designer of some kind — but the existence of a personal God. You Read More ›
