Jonathan M. introduces the lecture over at Evolution News:
On July 14, 2012, an ID conference (“Design in Nature? Scientific and Philosophical Perspectives”) took place in Cambridge, England. The event featured prominent ID thinkers Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, Prof. Steve Fuller, Prof. Stephen Clark, and Dr. David Glass. Videos of the presentations are currently being uploaded for public viewing.
