“Desperate and kind of pathetic,” is how Eric Metaxas delicately characterizes materialist attempts to explain away the three scientific discoveries that together call for an inference to a personal God. As Stephen Meyer explains in his brand new book, out yesterday, Return of the God Hypothesis, those are the discovery that the universe has a beginning, that it was ultra-fine-tuned for life from the start, and that life bears evidence of “bursts of information” infusing what materialists assume to be unguided evolutionary history. Metaxas talked with Meyer in a (what else did you expect?) highly entertaining interview. Watch it now:
