What can we learn when we balance the facts and arguments on both sides of each question? This episode of ID the Future features a debate between Stephen Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell, and Michael Shermer, Founding Publisher of Skeptic magazine, on Lee Strobel’s “Faith Under Fire” program, arguing for and against intelligent design.

Of course, both of these men have plenty more to say. In less than two weeks, they will meet again at the prestigious Saban Theater in Beverly Hills to debate intelligent design and evolution, joined by Dr. Richard Sternberg and Dr. Donald Prothero, respectively. The debate is hosted by the American Freedom Alliance and will take place on Monday, November 30, at 7:30pm. For more information and to buy tickets, click here.
