Dr. Meyer Presents the Case for ID at Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, director of CSC, gave a standing room only presentation of the case for intelligent design at the Heritage Foundation here in Washington.

Dr. Meyer delivered a very thorough presentation in which he presented two key components of the case for design theory: irreducible complexity, and the digital code in DNA molecules.

It was an engaging lecture and you can watch it online. The event was streamed live on the Heritage website, and is now available for viewing from their archive at (events are listed chronologically and this one was April 19, 2005).

The lecture, including Q&A (which begins at about 1:05 into the event), ran just about an hour and a half, and the audience was completely engaged beginning to end. Many even stayed to speak with Dr. Meyer following the official end of the event.

Tomorrow morning, Dr. Meyer will debate Dr. William Provine of Cornell University at the National Press Club at 9am. It is unlikely that this will be recorded by any major media outlets, but I will report on it after the fact.
