Meyer, Medved Stoke Science Controversy; New Gilder Book

DD Banner Ad H.jpg

Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Stephen C. Meyer will be on the Michael Medved show today, in the last hour of the program — after 2:15 Pacific time, or 5:15 pm Eastern. As Medved (also a Discovery fellow) launches his new weekly Science and Culture Update, Dr. Meyer will be explaining the scientific discoveries that increasingly render Darwinian materialism moot and intelligent design plausible.

You can and should pre-order his new book, Darwin’s Doubt, especially if you want to take advantage of the discount this month. You can also follow the controversy here on ENV and on the Medved page.

In a separate development, our friend and Discovery colleague George Gilder is also preparing an important new book for publication in June: Knowledge and Power: The Information Theory of Capitalism and How it is Revolutionizing our World. Both books draw heavily on information theory, one to help provide a new theory in biology, the other a new theory of economics. I have been excited about this dual development since I started seeing drafts of both books this winter.

I promise you that, if you’re interested in changing intellectual and political understandings, it’s going to be an important summer. While politics tanks, science is looking up, with encouraging implications for the future. Don’t miss out on learning how and why, and don’t wait
