Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design
Speaker: Stephen Meyer
This presentation is one long argument for the theory of intelligent design using DNA and the information imbedded within it. But it is also a story, a mystery story, and the story of Dr. Meyer's engagement with it. It tells about the mystery that has surrounded the discovery of the digital code in DNA and how that discovery has confounded repeated attempts to explain the origin of the first life on earth. Darwin gave us "design without a designer." But is this really true? Even if we grant Darwin's argument in The Origin of Species, does it really follow that he refuted the design hypothesis? This presentation will present a fresh perspective on this question by examining one of the most enduring mysteries of modern biology.
