Stephen Meyer on Science and God at PragerU
1. Scientific Evidence for God and Why It Matters
If there were no God, and no purpose to existence, could we rationally expect a cosmic home like ours — a universe with a beginning, ultra-finely tuned for life, with living beings far surpassing in sophistication the most advanced human technology? Not a chance.
2. DNA and The Evidence for Intelligent Design
Follow the science! It demonstrates that the digitally encoded information in DNA, like all such information (including in the programming for the computer you’re using right now), could have arisen from only one source: an intelligent agent, acting deliberately.
3. Aliens, the Multiverse, or God?
Resisting the evidence of cosmic and biological design, some atheist scientists have retreated to desperate rationalizations — such as a purely speculative “multiverse,” or space aliens seeding life on Earth. All in vain, it’s an effort to avoid the conclusion of a transcendent creator.
4. How Did the Universe Begin?
Some scientists, including Albert Einstein, fought hard against the idea of a Big Bang — that the universe burst into existence a finite time ago — until the scientific data became too overwhelming to fudge or deny anymore. “In the beginning,” indeed.
5. Are Religion and Science in Conflict?
Atheist thinkers insist there can be no peace between a scientific understanding of reality, and religious one. History, however, shows that the rise of science drew deeply on Judeo-Christian presuppositions, without which we would be both spiritually and scientifically far poorer.
6. Evolution: Bacteria to Beethoven
For a century Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution has been as unquestioned as Newton’s theory of gravity. But science never stops asking questions. Or at least it’s not supposed to. Are there questions about the origins of life that Darwinism can’t answer?
