Intelligent Design is an idea that is capturing the attention of many in the scientific community. Why? Because more and more are finding fault with the ideas posited by Charles Darwin. Join us for a fascinating conversation between two scientists – one a supporter of ID and the other, not. What they both have in common, however, is the recognition of the complete failure of modern evolutionary theory to explain the survival of, let alone the arrival of, life.

Scott Turner is a biologist with the State University of New York and currently a visiting scholar at Cambridge University whose scientific career has been a long intellectual journey “up from Darwinism,” ultimately to conclude that he is no longer a Darwinist. His journey can also be traced in print, in three books: The Extended Organism, The Tinkerer’s Accomplice, and most recently Purpose and Desire: What Makes Something Alive and Why Modern Darwinism Fails to Explain It. In this latest book, Turner argues that evolution is a cognitive phenomenon, driven largely by the intentionality that is a fundamental property of life.
Stephen Meyer received his PhD in the philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge, and has for many years been the leading proponent of intelligent design theory, which argues that it is inescapable that the design we see in nature must be driven by intelligence of some sort. He has made this case in his well-received books Signature in the Cell and the New York Times bestseller Darwin’s Doubt.
