“Be Cautious, but Not Too Cautious”: Stephen Meyer’s Advice to Science Students

Stephen Meyer

On a new episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer, director of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture and author of Darwin’s Doubt, gives advice to students and recent graduates interested in intelligent design. Download the podcast or listen to it here.

Talking with host Beatris Rusu, Dr. Meyer encourages students to recognize how pervasive philosophical naturalism is in the academy; master the material; do good work; and stand firm. When should you keep your head down, letting discretion be the better part of valor, and when should you speak out, publicly supporting the case for intelligent design? Meyer also offers advice on this. In short, “Be cautious, but not too cautious.”
