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!
Enthusiastic host Lee Elci interviews Stephen Meyer about some of the biggest scientific discoveries in recent history, as well as the implications of these findings. Topics include big bang cosmology, the vastly improbable fine tuning of the universe, and the immense complexity of the cell that was thought to be simple in Darwin’s time. Elci and Meyer also discuss the multiverse and the amazing story of Stephen Hawking. Listen to both segments to hear an information-packed conversation!
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.
As crazy as it all sounds, scientists have long posited the possibility of aliens on our planet. But no alien being within the universe can explain what scientists have discovered about the structure of the universe. Read More ›
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!
The Dutch newspaper Reformatorisch Dagblad interviewed Dr. Stephen Meyer about his new book, Return of the God Hypothesis. The article was written in Dutch by their science editor, Bart van den Dikkenberg. Here we include a few sentences from the introduction as a preview. View the full article in Dutch at the link below. 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 ›
In the book River Out of Eden, Oxford biologist and atheist superstar Richard Dawkins famously wrote: “The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.” Dawkins and other “new atheists” have long insisted that science has excluded the possibility of a creator or has, at least, rendered it unnecessary. Turns out this belief may be scientifically out of date. According to a new book, the biggest discoveries of the last century challenge a materialistic worldview and call science back to its theistic roots. Cambridge-educated philosopher of science Stephen Meyer wrote two books, Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt, that Read More ›
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 ›
