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:
Stephen Meyer joins 40-year broadcasting veteran John Loeffler, host of Steel on Steel. In this interview, you can hear about a conference at the Royal Society convened by a group of evolutionary biologists who are openly stating the need for a new theory of evolution. These evolutionary biologists recognize the inadequacy of the current neo-Darwinian model. You can also hear why the multiverse hypothesis, even if true, fails to explain the ultimate origin of fine tuning. Be sure to listen in!
In a new commentary from the Colson Center’s BreakPoint, host John Stonestreet reports on the discoveries of the last century that challenge a materialistic worldview and call science back to its theistic roots. Listen to this 5-minute commentary below or read it instead. Dr. Meyer also appeared in a recent episode of the Colson Center’s Upstream podcast with Shane Morris to discuss Return of the God Hypothesis. Listen to that interview here.
Dr. Stephen Meyer connects with an old friend, host Kerby Anderson, on an episode of Point of View to discuss his latest book Return of the God Hypothesis. Starting with the events that inspired him to write the book, the pair also discuss where the term “laws of nature” comes from and what it really means, how the 20th century inherited the 19th century’s scientific materialism, and why recent scientific discoveries are bringing the God hypothesis back to the fore.
Vice President of BioLogos Jim Stump hosts Stephen Meyer on an episode of the BioLogos podcast Language of God. Despite foundational differences between the theistic evolution and intelligent design communities, Stump and Meyer have a courteous, in-depth exchange about Meyer’s background, the history of the intelligent design research community, and the arguments of Meyer’s new book Return of the God Hypothesis. Instead of taking the shape of a back-and-forth debate, Stump asks probing questions and simply listens to Meyer make his points and clarify his positions on key topics, including the difference between general and special revelation, how historical science differs from natural or lab science, the meanings of evolution, and why intelligent design is not simply an appeal to Read More ›
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 host 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 mere 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 Read More ›
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. In Part 1 of their lively conversation, they discuss how Judeo-Christian ideas fueled modern science and what happened when scientific materialism eclipsed the God hypothesis in the late 19th century. 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. In Part 2, they discuss the second and third scientific discoveries Dr. Meyer writes about – the fine-tuning of the basic Read More ›
What do you get when you combine an interested host, great questions, and a good-quality audio setup? An awesome interview! Stephen Meyer calls this 25-minute segment one of the best radio spots he’s ever done. Listen to see why. Hear seasoned radio host Marc Bernier ask perceptive questions about scientific materialism, the possibility of extraterrestrials, the role of intelligent design in medicine, the approach to evolution in school, the roots of the war between science and faith, and, of course, the arguments in Meyer’s new book Return of the God Hypothesis.
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.
