Thursday, October 26, 2017 Bruce Phillips – DNA and Intelligent Design – Part II

Prepare to be intellectually stimulated!

Speaking before a spellbound Georgia Tea Party audience, Scholar Bruce Phillips presented compelling evidence that life is “systematically complex” down to the atomic level; which, he argued in Part I, is compelling evidence of intelligent design. 

Bruce is a Certified Apologetics Instructor via a number of organizations including the Southern Baptist Convention’s North American Mission Board, BIOLA University in Los Angeles, and the Cross Examined Ministry originally from Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte.  After a childhood interest in science took him to Duke University for biology, he was distracted by Romance Languages, served in the US Army during Vietnam as a Mandarin Chinese linguist, and followed that with a Master’s Degree in Language Theory at the University of Illinois.  But the necessity of earning a living eventually took him to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania for an MBA in Finance in the late 70s.  That resulted in years in international business, primarily in Southeast Asia and later in England.  Energy, software and management consulting positions all revolved in some way around finance.

Bruce will be speaking twice on two books by Dr. Stephen Meyer that have become classics in the Intelligent Design movement.  The first, “Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design” will take us into the interior structure of DNA information and make the case that the complexity we find there is only and always the product of intelligence.  When we ask today “how life began” we tend to get a lot of hand waving as hard facts and evidence are hard to come by if you are looking only for a materialistic foundation.  Intelligent Design is open to the possibility that intelligence was involved – and Dr. Meyer’s book sets this out clearly and compellingly.

The second presentation is based on Dr. Meyer’s subsequent book “Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design.”  This book builds on its predecessor and takes us through what we are learning about how animals develop.  What do we need to do to create totally new creatures?  And is it possible that this can be done through random forces alone?  Once you understand what’s at issues here, intelligent design should look a much more likely answer!  Along the way we’ll be treated to some wonderful animations of the sea floor and associated flora and fauna that were there 500 million years ago near the very beginning of life on earth.
