Ricochet Podcast: Stephen Meyer Takes on Challenges to his Scientific Reasoning About the Origin and Design of the Universe

Enjoy 30 minutes of Dr. Stephen Meyer in fine form as he explains and defends the arguments of his new book Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries that Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe. Meyer is joined on Ricochet’s flagship podcast by hosts Peter Robinson and guest host James Lileks, who keep it lively with stimulating questions. Topics include: what separates the historical sciences from the everyday lab-coat sciences, whether science and religion need to be kept separate, how the various hypotheses for the origin of the universe compare, the difference between Shannon information and complex, specified information, and how intelligent design goes beyond the negative argument against neo-Darwinism to make a strong positive argument for the causal Read More ›

Post-Darwinian Science: Frank Turek and Stephen Meyer Discuss the Return of the God Hypothesis

In a two-part series on his syndicated radio show I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist, Dr. Frank Turek discusses the history and the science found in Dr. Stephen Meyer’s new book Return of the God Hypothesis.

They also discuss the first of three scientific discoveries Dr. Meyer discusses in his book – the realization by scientists in the 20th century that the universe had a beginning.

Stephen Meyer Goes Back to the Roots of Intelligent Design with Sandy Rios

Radio host Sandy Rios has been following the work of the intelligent design community at Discovery Institute since the 1990s. On this episode of Sandy Rios in the Morning, she’s excited to unpack Meyer’s new book Return of the God Hypothesis. After a review of the impact Discovery Institute has had on science in the last 25 years, Rios probes the three scientific discoveries detailed in Meyer’s book. She also explores the fascinating idea that the available scientific evidence suggests that the designer behind the universe is not a distant, unknown entity but a personal God that is knowable.

Three Theistic Implications of Modern Science

Dr. Stephen Meyer makes his first appearance on The Pat Flynn Show to discuss his new book Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries that Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe. Up for discussion is whether the intelligent design movement is at odds with traditional Christian theology, whether quantum cosmology can ultimately get around the universe having an absolute beginning (and thereby requiring a transcendent cause), and whether the multiverse can adequately explain physical fine tuning.
