On today's program, Dr. Michael Denton discusses why he foresees the downfall of the mechanistic view, at least in cell biology, and the exhaustion of materialist researches into the origin of life. Conversely, Denton finds validity in Stephen Meyer's The Signature in the Cell, and in the proposition that intelligence was at work in the origin of life, and well before.
Dr. Denton has been a medical geneticist for over twenty years, a researcher on the mammalian eye, and is the author of two books, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis and, more recently, Nature's Destiny. Dr. Denton holds an M.D. from Bristol University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from King's College, London. He is currently a Senior Fellow with Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture.
