BioLogos' Falk on Disco's Meyer

Darrel Falk is co-president of the BioLogos Foundation and a biology professor at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. He offers a calm review of Signature in the Cell by Stephen Meyer, Director and Senior Fellow of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute (Disco). Signature in the Cell seems to be Disco’s main statement of late, but it fails to convince biologist Falk.

Falk begins:

I believe there is a Mind who was before all things and through whom all things are held together (Colossians 1:17): I believe that Mind is the intelligence behind all that exists in the universe. Hence, I believe in intelligent design. Does that by definition then, place me in the Intelligent Design (ID) movement?


The recent book, Signature in the Cell , by ID movement leader Stephen C. Meyer, illustrates why.

… the middle …

and ends:

The science of origins is not the failure it is purported [by Meyer] to be. It is just science moving along as science does–one step at a time. Let it be.
