Intelligent design let down.

Despite been well presented and undoubtedly well researched this podcast never seems to actually discuss the theory of intelligent design. Rather it turns into a critique of evolutionary theory. Having listened to a large number of these they never put forward a simple testable hypothesis that we can consider. So if evolutionary theory is incorrect what do they feel should go in its place?

Great show but the 1 star reviewers have an agenda

Giving a show that includes content by John Lennox and Stephen Meyer 1 star is utterly laughable. Comments such as 'Avoid'...really? What happened to an open mind and exploring possibilities? Isaac Newton saw design in the Universe as did many great scientists of the past, scientists who actually achieved stuff, not quite sure what the long term achievments of Richard Dawkins will be. To be fair I used to be just as tunnel-visioned as the 1 star reviewers but that just keeps you narrow minded and arrogant. Is there design or just natural process by a combination of chance events? It's an interesting question and people have the right to consider it without atheists shutting down the debate while claiming to be protecting science. I've listened to Stephen Meyer a number of times on 'Unbelievable' and always found him honest and compelling. Still if you think grown adults are incapable of listening to different views just go ahead and warn people to stay away, 'No science here' etc.

Don’t be put off by poor reviews, but why not?

I think this is a great channel. Most one star atheists must have a personal agenda and are acting out of emotion rather than logic and like to put others off from hearing the other side of the argument. Using arguments like, “it is funded by...” or “this shouldn’t be classified as...” ought not affect whether something is a well evidenced good argument or not.

If you are brave enough to get a sense of the genuine arguments proposed by intelligent design then this is worth a listen. If you’re not brave enough and you would rather hear mischaracterisations of the argument by other atheists then you are on unsteady philosophical and scientific grounds and your opposing arguments will be all the poorer for it.
