Intelligent Design: Finding the Signature of God in Nature

I will give this lecture on November 8, at 7:00 PM, at the Denver Seminary Chapel (6399 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton, CO 80120). It is part of "The Women's Forum" program, but I think they let in males. I don't plan to come in drag, anyway. The lecture will give the evidence for design in nature, focusing on the microscopic world of the cell. The poster child of the ID movement, the bacterial flagellum, will make another appearance in a short DVD clip, probably from Lee Strobel's superb DVD, "The Case for a Creator." I will give out a detailed outline and leave plenty of time for questions and answers.

"design in nature, focusing on teh microscopic world of the cell" is a superb way of showing design. However, adding the non-biological creation and a snippet from perhaps the DVD/book "The Priviledged Planet" may prove useful as well. Design from the animate and inanimate worlds covers the full gamut and leaves no stone unturned.

Is this too much territory to cover?

It's part of the overall argument, but too much for one gig.

Ah...understand.
As Bill Craig has pointed out, the fine-tuned argument is the necessary precursor for the argument from biology. Put differently, biological life requires an environment set by specified initial conditions.

I'd love to come but am unable to make it tonight. I didn't realize Lee Strobel had an accompanying DVD to his book--I'll have to check that out sometime.

Atomic age of all life and everything else? --same?
Isn't everything porous, including our brain with all sorts of waves passing through unimpeded by our atomic structure. It is the mind [soul] of man that resides and guides this creationist. Enjoy the beauty and the wonders of nature in humility and "watch" all those atoms recycle forever.
