Theistic Evolution Has a Logic Problem, Materialism Has a History Problem

Today on ID the Future we hear from the editors of the major new Crossway book, Theistic Evolution: A Scientific, Philosophical, and Theological Critique. Philosophers J.P. Moreland and Stephen Meyer examine contradictions right at the heart of theistic evolution, answer logical challenges directed back at intelligent design theory, and explain more than one severe issue with thinking science ever has or ever could thrive on its own, without strong support from both philosophy and theology.

Stephen Meyer on Thomas Nagel’s Big Break with Materialism

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Stephen Meyer is on The Universe Next Door to discuss Thomas Nagel’s controversial book Mind & Cosmos: Why the Materialist Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature Is Almost Certainly False. Nagel, a leading philosopher of science and a self-described agnostic, tells in his book how he has become disenchanted with the materialist worldview, and how science today leaves fundamental questions unanswered — such as the nature of mind and consciousness. Meyer also discusses the origin of animal body plans and the inference to design.
