Today on the Medved Show, Stephen Meyer Will Discuss the Suppressed Story in the Darwin Debate

Medved-Banner7.jpgYou'll want to catch Discovery Institute's Stephen C. Meyer on the Michael Medved show today, May 1, at 1:30 pm Pacific, 4:30 Eastern time. On the show's regular new "Science and Culture Update," Dr. Meyer will be talking about the startling disconnect between how Darwinian theory is treated in the popular media -- as established fact that only an ignoramus or denizen of the religious Dark Ages would doubt -- and how it's treated in the professional and technical science literature.

In the latter, it's open to some very lively debate, with scientists punching holes in core tenets of the theory and candidly seeking alternatives. That's one of the themes of Dr. Meyer's forthcoming book, Darwin's Doubt.

In this context, some folks in our culture have used the prestige of science as a branding tool to create an illusion that their views and values aren't merely opinions but facts beyond reasonable debate. In Darwin's Doubt, to be published on June 18 by HarperOne, Dr. Meyer deconstructs the myth that Darwinian biologists have got everything all figured out. The reality, the suppressed story, is much more complicated and much more interesting.

Michael Medved is our favorite talk radio host -- and of course a fellow of Discovery Institute. His Science and Culture Update is a regular weekly feature on the Medved show. Syndicated to 200 radio stations, the show reaches 3-4 million people weekly. Don't miss Steve and Michael as they talk about science as a cultural flashpoint!

And don't forget to pre-order your copy of Darwin's Doubt before the excellent savings and free digital book offer say farewell.
