Meyer: Believing Life's 'Signature in the Cell'

Ad Feedback

Several scientists are now agreeing that it takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe in a creator.  

They say new discoveries inside the very building blocks of life are giving more evidence all the time that there's an intelligent design behind all life on earth.

Darwin's theory of evolution rests on the idea that the incredibly complex web of life today all evolved from simple chemicals and cells. No creator was necessary, just chance and the powers of the fittest forms of life to survive and adapt.

But Darwin couldn't see into cells and DNA like scientists of the modern age. He couldn't know these building blocks of life work because of intricate little machines in each cell -- so wildly intricate there's no chance they could simply evolve.

Darwin couldn't know that DNA functions -- life itself functions -- because of incredibly complex code, way beyond what even the most brilliant computer programmers have devised. 

Secular scientists often mock the simple faith of those who believe in an unseen God. But statisticians say the odds are impossible that this incredibly intricate, elegant code could ever just evolve.

Because of that, they say it takes much more faith to believe in such chance than it does to believe an intelligent designer is behind this code at the core of all life.

Science philosopher Stephen Meyer, in his book Signature in the Cell, lays out the evidence for such intelligent design. He refutes the arguments that the theory of intelligent design is just religion and not true science. It's a battle over the very origin and meaning of life that the secular media rarely allow to break out into the open.
