A Case for Intelligent Design

Romans 1: 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.

However, having said that, for those of us who embrace Scripture, we certainly would agree that the data around us provides a compelling case for the God who made heaven and earth.

Justin Taylor writes, “In November 2011 Dr. Stephen Meyer gave the inaugural lecture for The Centre for Intelligent Design (c4id) before a distinguished group of British political, cultural, and intellectual leaders in London. The theme was on his book, Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2009). He explains the problem of the origin of life and shows how the existence of biological information gives scientific evidence for intelligent design (ID). The last 10 minutes or so contains some Q & A.”
