Coming in June, a Game-Changing New Book: Darwin’s Doubt, by Stephen Meyer

The evolution debate is about to undergo a paradigm shift. Darwin’s Origin of Species launched a revolution whose scientific, cultural and spiritual effects are still with us. Now a new revolution is on the horizon.

Here Saunders makes it clear that he has shut off his mind from even considering the possibility of Intelligent Design, which is, of course, a theory that is proposed to explain the Read More ›
