SLO MO REWIND: Dr. Stephen C. Meyer on Proving the Existence of God
Show Notes

For the next few weeks over the Holiday break, we'll be revisiting a few of the most impactful episodes of Slo Mo from 2021. Appropriately for Christmas, I wanted to again feature Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, who made a compelling case for the existence of God. For this holiday season, I can't imagine a more important contrast to the commercialization that has come to define this time.

Dr. Stephen C. Meyer received his Ph.D. in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge. A former geophysicist and college professor, he now directs Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture in Seattle.

He has authored the New York Times best seller Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design and Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design, which was named a Book of the Year by the Times of London Literary Supplement in 2009. Stephen’s books and research address the deepest mystery surrounding the origin of human and animal life, particularly the origin of biological information necessary to produce it.

In his latest book, The Return of the God Hypothesis, Stephen presents groundbreaking scientific evidence of the existence of God, based on breakthroughs in physics, cosmology, and biology.

It’s no secret that I too used a bit of math, physics and cosmology to try and show that our universe and everything in it is not the result of randomness but rather the product of intricate design. (Chapter 14 of Solve for Happy)

Give us a chance today to take you through the possibility of the existence of a divine designer. This surely is a topic that, regardless of how busy you are today, is worth taking a little bit of time to slow down.

Listen as we discuss:

  • Political correctness in science.
  • What led Stephen to dive into his work?
  • The highly unlikely probability for evolution to generate new species in such time.
  • The bike lock analogy.
  • DNA is literally like software code, and therefore someone must have programmed it.
  • Information is the hallmark of intelligent activity and inference to the best explanation.
  • Darwin’s Doubt and the Cambrian Explosion.
  • What did Darwin get right?
  • The return of the God hypothesis: who is the designer?
