On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin responds to Calvin College biology professor Steve Matheson’s critique of Signature in the Cell. What would you get if you crossed a snarky pro-evolution blog like Panda’s Thumb with a passionate defender of theistic evolution? You might get Steve Matheson’s critique of Stephen Meyer’s book.

Listen in as Luskin explains how Matheson’s frequent personal attacks on Meyer, mixed with exposés of occasional typos and the possible discovery of one minor error, make for a weak argument against intelligent design.
