In the growing movement known as intelligent design, Stephen Meyer is an emerging figurehead. A young, Cambridge-educated philosopher of science, Meyer is director of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute — intelligent design’s primary intellectual and scientific headquarters. He’s also author of Signature in the Cell, a provocative new book that offers the first comprehensive DNA-based argument for intelligent design.I highly suggest reading the article but also I find the comments very telling. There are several comments made by people who embrace evolution form an atheistic worldview. Their attitude amazes me. It's like Evolution has to be so fundamentally true that only morons don't believe it or question it. At the same time they take the attitude that theists are biased because scientists are supposed to "question and test everything". It's also amazing that none of the critical comments I says said anything like "I read Meyer's book and he is wrong on a certain page and here is why." No, he's wrong because he challenges their worldview.
On May 14, Meyer gave a lecture at an event hosted by Biola's Christian apologetics program in Chase Gymnasium, where he made his case that the origin of the information needed to create the first cell must have came from an intelligent designer. Biola Magazine sat down with Meyer while he was at Biola and asked him to elaborate on evolution, the scientific merit of the theory of intelligent design and the uncanny similarities between DNA and computer programming.
The thing that amazes me about the people who hate intelligent design is that they expect us to believe that all of nature in its myriad of complexities, structure, and shape - awesome as it is - came into being without a mind behind it. I'm a computer programmer and no computer program comes into existence without a mind. Why would DNA or anything we see in nature be any different?
