In today’s episode, Becket chats with Dr. Stephen Meyer about his book, “Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries That Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe.”
The New York Times bestselling author of “Darwin’s Doubt,” Stephen Meyer, presents groundbreaking scientific evidence of the existence of God, based on breakthroughs in physics, cosmology, and biology.
Beginning in the late 19th century, many intellectuals began to insist that scientific knowledge conflicts with traditional theistic belief—that science and belief in God are “at war.” Philosopher of science Stephen Meyer challenges this view by examining three scientific discoveries with decidedly theistic implications. Building on the case for the intelligent design of life that he developed in Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt, Meyer demonstrates how discoveries in cosmology and physics coupled with those in biology help to establish the identity of the designing intelligence behind life and the universe.
Meyer argues that theism—with its affirmation of a transcendent, intelligent and active creator—best explains the evidence we have concerning biological and cosmological origins. Previously Meyer refrained from attempting to answer questions about “who” might have designed life. Now he provides an evidence-based answer to perhaps the ultimate mystery of the universe. In so doing, he reveals a stunning conclusion: the data support not just the existence of an intelligent designer of some kind—but the existence of a personal God.
Becket lived as a gay man his entire adult life until he came to faith in Christ in 2009. He has lived all over the world in major cities such as Rome, Vienna, and Tokyo, and spends much of his time in ministry, speaking at churches, universities.
Becket graduated from Talbot School of Theology at Biola University in 2017 with a Master of Arts in Theology. His book, A Change of Affection: A Gay Man's Incredible Story of Redemption, with a foreword by Francis Chan, published by Thomas Nelson, released July 30, 2019.
