Stephen Meyer Makes Me Feel Cool

I'm not much of a scientist, but like everybody, I have a sort of popular culture science learned by osmosis. Increasingly, lately, creationism has seemed so uncool to me that I was tempted to slap the title "theistic evolution" on it just to feel more intelligent. I knew, of course, that that wasn't really based on any knowledge of science, and have been meaning to do some research, just to be informed.

Well, this worked quite well as a refresher to my high school biology class, and certainly gives me some talking points whenever evolution enters the conversation. It also clears up a lot of misconceptions about the Intelligent Design group.

Also, Metaxas is hilarious and charming as ever. Enjoy.

  1. Oh yay, Steve Meyer. Good friend of the family. Uh, not to name-drop or anything... though come to think of it we kind of know ALL the Christians in Expelled. And I've had lunch with Lee Strobel. *sorry* *bends down to pick up scattered names* ;-)

    1. Yep, I'm impressed. :) Very cool - tell them thanks from an eighteen-year-old trying to survive in a secular culture.
