Faith & Reason: Stephen Meyer Discusses the Return of the God Hypothesis with Charles Moscowitz

Boston-based author and podcast host Charles Moscowitz hosts Dr. Stephen Meyer to discuss topics in his new book Return of the God Hypothesis. Meyer reviews discusses the greats of modern science and how their faith complemented their science. He also talks about the three discoveries revealed in his new book that show that the universe is not self-organizing or self-existent but rather requires an external input of information from a transcendent mind. Along the way, Meyer also explains that the origin of information is a huge problem in chemical evolutionary theory. For this reason, a number of chemists and biologists are beginning to acknowledge that the long-standing mutation/selection mechanism of neo-Darwinism lacks the creative power to produce innovations rather than Read More ›

Separation of Church and Science: Dr. Stephen Meyer Discusses New Book on Steel on Steel News Radio

The Dutch newspaper Reformatorisch Dagblad interviewed Dr. Stephen Meyer about his new book, Return of the God Hypothesis.

The title of Meyer’s book, The Return of the God Hypothesis, is a nod to a famous, but probably apocryphal, statement by the French mathematician Pierre-Simon de Laplace (1749-1827). When he presented his book Traité de Mécanique Céleste in 1802 to the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, Laplace was asked what the role of God at the origin of the solar system had been. The mathematician replied: Read More ›
