Book Description

Release date: July 17, 2007

An instant bestseller, The Language of God provides the best argument for the integration of faith and logic since C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity .

 

It has long been believed that science and faith cannot mingle. Faith rejects the rational, while science restricts us to a life with no meaning beyond the physical. It is an irreconcilable war between two polar-opposite ways of thinking and living. Written for believers, agnostics, and atheists alike, The Language of God provides a testament to the power of faith in the midst of suffering without faltering from its logical stride. Readers will be inspired by Collin’s personal story of struggling with doubt, as well as the many revelations of the wonder of God’s creation that will forever shape the way they view the world around them.

Show 1013 An Extended Interview of Dr. Stephen Meyers about his new book Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life & The Case For Intelligent Design

 

Dr Stephen Meyers Intelligent Design Interview 6-19-2013

 

The Origins of Information: Exploring and Explaining Biological Information

 

In the 21st century, the information age has finally come to biology. We now know that biology at its root is comprised of information rich systems, such as the complex digital code encoded in DNA. Groundbreaking discoveries of the past decade are revealing the information bearing properties of biological systems.

 

Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, a Cambridge trained philosopher of science is examining and explaining the amazing depth of digital technology found in each and every living cell such as nested coding, digital processing, distributive retrieval and storage systems, and genomic operating systems.

 

Meyer is developing a more fundamental argument for intelligent design that is based not on a single feature like the bacterial flagellum, but rather on a pervasive feature of all living systems. Alongside matter and energy, Dr. Meyer shows that there is a third fundamental entity in the universe needed for life: information.

 

In Meyer's new book, Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life & The Case For Intelligent Design, he addresses Darwin's most significant doubt and what has become of it.

 

He examines an event during a remote period of geological history in which numerous animal forms appear to have arisen suddenly and without evolutionary precursors in the fossil record, a mysterious event commonly referred to as the "Cambrian explosion." Darwin saw this event as a troubling anomaly and one that future fossil discoveries would eventually eliminate and give more answers to.

 

This problem has generated a crisis in evolutionary biology and gave Darwin his own doubt with the fossil evidence that elicited it.

 

Meyers has divided his new book into three parts (shared by World Mag):

 

Part One, "The Mystery of the Missing Fossils," describes the problem that brought Darwin's doubt in the first place, the missing ancestors of the Cambrian animals in the earlier Precambrian fossil record. Meyers then shares about the successive, but unsuccessful, attempts that biologists and paleontologists have made to resolve that mystery.

 

Part Two, "How to Build an Animal," explains why the discovery of the importance of information to living systems has made the mystery of the Cambrian explosion more acute. Biologists now know that the Cambrian explosion not only represents an explosion of new animal form and structure but also an explosion of information-that it was, indeed, one of the most significant "information revolutions" in the history of life. Part Two examines the problem of explaining how the unguided mechanism of natural selection and random mutations could have produced the biological information necessary to build the Cambrian animal forms. This group of chapters explains why so many leading biologists now doubt the creative power of the neo-Darwinian mechanism and it presents four rigorous critiques of the mechanism based on recent biological research.

 

Part Three, "After Darwin, What?" evaluates more current evolutionary theories to see if any of them explain the origin of form and information more satisfactorily than standard neo-Darwinism does. Part Three also presents and assesses the theory of intelligent design as a possible solution to the Cambrian mystery. A concluding chapter discusses the implications of the debate about design in biology for the larger philosophical questions that animate human existence. As the story of the book unfolds, it will become apparent that a seemingly isolated anomaly that Darwin acknowledged almost in passing has grown to become illustrative of a fundamental problem for all of evolutionary biology: the problem of the origin of biological form and information.

 

Meyer has also written, Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design.

Show 1012 The Prager Interview- Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design.

 

Dennis Prager talks to Stephen Meyer, a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute. His new book is Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design.

 

Book Description

Release date: June 18, 2013

When Charles Darwin finished The Origin of Species, he thought that he had explained every clue, but one. Though his theory could explain many facts, Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. During this event, the “Cambrian explosion,” many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. 

 

In Darwin’s Doubt, Stephen C. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life—a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been found, but because scientists have learned more about what it takes to construct an animal. During the last half century, biologists have come to appreciate the central importance of biological information—stored in DNA and elsewhere in cells—to building animal forms.

 

Expanding on the compelling case he presented in his last book, Signature in the Cell, Meyer argues that the origin of this information, as well as other mysterious features of the Cambrian event, are best explained by intelligent design, rather than purely undirected evolutionary processes.

CONFLICT IN KOREA: REMEMBERING THE FORGOTTEN WAR

Most Americans know next to nothing about the Korean War, despite the heroic service of the courageous troops who fought there. In three years of intense suffering and sacrifice, that mixed soaring victories with hideous reverses, the United States endured more than 50,000 deaths (on the battlefield, from illness, and in POW camps) with over 100,000 soldiers seriously wounded.

 

Some of the most vivid personalities in world history played decisive roles in the Korean conflict: Presidents Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower, General Douglas MacArthur, and Prime Minister Winston Churchill; on the Communist side, the brutal dictators Josef Stalin, Mao Tse Tung and Kim Il Sung. Despite the fact that all of these titanic figures acknowledged the epic significance of the struggle, contemporary Americans mostly ignore the war because it's so hard to classify. It was neither a global, noble victory like World War II, nor a bitter and divisive failure like Vietnam. The tide of battle at first recalled the daring maneuvers and colorful leadership of the Civil War, but later settled into a punishing stalemate and war of attrition reminiscent of the trench warfare in World War I. Meanwhile, the most crucial and dramatic confrontation of the whole struggle didn't pit Americans against the enemy, but brought a legendary and incomparably charismatic commander into direct conflict with a determined, chronically under-rated president of the United States.

 

All of this gripping history deserves recollection, especially in view of ongoing threats from the mad, bad regime in North Korea that the conflict of sixty years ago never conclusively resolved. This spell-binding account by Michael Medved mixes the actual voices of Truman, MacArthur and Ike with hit music from the era—including #1 hits honoring a Korean War commander, or crooned by a draftee and PFC who became a Hollywood heartthrob. From the baseball immortal who flew 37 Korean combat missions, to the small town priest who died in a POW camp and is on his way to Catholic sainthood, CONFLICT IN KOREA helps bring to life the indelible personalities, decisive judgments and worldwide stakes of the nation's most misunderstood conflict and assists Americans in REMEMBERING THE FORGOTTEN WAR.

Show 1008 Paul Johnson on the Father of Our Country

Guest Paul Johnson, renowned British historian. His newest book is George Washington: The Founding Father.

 

George Washington: The Founding Father by Paul Johnson  

 

By far the most important figure in the history of the United States, George Washington liberated the thirteen colonies from the superior forces of the British Empire against all military odds, and presided over the production and ratification of a constitution that (suitably amended) has lasted for more than two hundred years. Yet today Washington remains a distant figure to many Americans—a failing that acclaimed author Paul Johnson sets out to rectify with this brilliantly vivid, sharply etched portrait of the great hero as a young warrior, masterly commander in chief, patient lawmaker, and exceptionally wise president.

Show 1007 Book- Knowledge and Power by George Gilder.

  

Dennis Prager talks to George Gilder, pre-eminent thinker, economic theorist and co-founder of the Discovery Institute. His new book is

Knowledge and Power: The Information Theory of Capitalism and How it is Revolutionizing our World.

 

Overview of book-

Ronald Reagan’s most-quoted living author—George Gilder—is back with an all-new paradigm-shifting theory of capitalism that will upturn conventional wisdom, just when our economy desperately needs a new direction.

America’s struggling economy needs a better philosophy than the college student's lament: "I can't be out of money, I still have checks in my checkbook!" We’ve tried a government spending spree, and we’ve learned it doesn’t work. Now is the time to rededicate our country to the pursuit of free market capitalism, before we’re buried under a mound of debt and unfunded entitlements. But how do we navigate between government spending that's too big to sustain and financial institutions that are "too big to fail?" In Knowledge and Power, George Gilder proposes a bold new theory on how capitalism produces wealth and how our economy can regain its vitality and its growth.

 

Gilder breaks away from the supply-side model of economics to present a new economic paradigm: the epic conflict between the knowledge of entrepreneurs on one side, and the blunt power of government on the other. The knowledge of entrepreneurs, and their freedom to share and use that knowledge, are the sparks that light up the economy and set its gears in motion. The power of government to regulate, stifle, manipulate, subsidize or suppress knowledge and ideas is the inertia that slows those gears down, or keeps them from turning at all.

 

One of the twentieth century’s defining economic minds has returned with a new philosophy to carry us into the twenty-first. Knowledge and Power is a must-read for fiscal conservatives, business owners, CEOs, investors, and anyone interested in propelling America’s economy to future success.

Show 999 The Savior Generals: How Five Great Commanders Saved Wars That Were Lost-From Ancient Greece to Iraq by Victor Davis Hanson

The author speaks for about an hour on BookTV.

 To watch the video of this presentation visit-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za1PoxlI_wI

 

Overview of the book-

Leading military historian Victor Davis Hanson returns to non-fiction in The Savior Generals, a set of brilliantly executed pocket biographies of five generals who single-handedly saved their nations from defeat in war. War is rarely a predictable enterprise—it is a mess of luck, chance, and incalculable variables. Today's sure winner can easily become tomorrow's doomed loser. Sudden, sharp changes in fortune can reverse the course of war.

 

These intractable circumstances are sometimes mastered by leaders of genius—asked at the eleventh hour to save a hopeless conflict, created by others, often unpopular with politics and the public. These savior generals often come from outside the established power structure, employ radical strategies, and flame out quickly. Their careers often end in controversy. But their dramatic feats of leadership are vital slices of history—not merely as stirring military narrative, but as lessons on the dynamic nature of consensus, leadership, and destiny.

 

Meet the Author-

Victor Davis Hanson is the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in Residence in Classics and Military History at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, a professor of Classics Emeritus at California State University, Fresno, and a nationally syndicated columnist for Tribune Media Services. His many books include the acclaimed The Father of Us All, A War Like No Other, The Western Way of War, Carnage and Culture, and Ripples of Battle.

Show 997  New Documentary called 3801 Lancaster .Exposes Horrors of Gosnell’s Abortion Clinic

by Steven Ertelt | 1/17/13

To watch the video of this audio presentation visit

http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/17/new-documentary-exposes-horrors-of-gosnells-abortion-clinic/

 Gosnell was no ordinary abortion practitioner.

 He jabbed scissors in the backs of children’s spines in order to complete abortions. he killed a woman in a botched legal abortion and injured other women in failed abortions as well. And he ran an illegal pill distribution scam out of his Philadelphia, Pennsylvania abortion clinic.

 Although the owner and operator of the Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society abortion business is in jail now awaiting trial after state and local authorities failed to hold him accountable, a new film called 3801 Lancaster, the address of his abortion clinic, exposes the gruesome details of what he did. Gosnell is currently awaiting trial on 8 counts of murder

 The 20 minute film is directed by David Altrogge and produced by Jennifer Thompson.

 Troy Newman of Operation Rescue endorsed the short film in an email to LifeNews, saying, “Gosnell and several of his employees were arrested and charged after a raid on his clinic revealed what reporters called a “house of horrors” where non-physicians conducted shoddy late-term abortions in squalid conditions. This video, written and directed by David Altrogge, is a “must-see” especially as we mark the 40th memorial of Roe v. Wade.”

 Selection 2- ECLIPSE OF REASON - Live Abortion Documentary / Pro-Life Anti-Abortion.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nff8I2FVnI&feature=share&list=PLBA715985D612CB8A

Published with permission from Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D. We would like to express our special thanks and gratitude for all of the lives saved by Dr. Nathanson. Introduced by Charlton Heston, an Academy Award winner and a conscientious citizen who takes an active part in community and film industry affairs. He urges the news media which he charged have "failed badly to inform the public on the abortion issue" to use the film Eclipse of Reason to promote a better informed public. This film produced by Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D. documents the intra-uterine life of a little boy at 5 months of age as seen through a fetoscope - a camera placed inside the pregnant uterus. Riveting images of a late abortion are then shown with a camera both inside and outside the uterus. Consistently verifiable statistics emphasize that this horror takes place 400 times a day in the US alone. In addition, there are deeply moving interviews with the other victims of abortion, women who have been irreparably injured by abortion, physically and psychologically.
