God’s Magnificent Design in Creation (with Dr. Jonathan Sarfati)


On September 13, 2014, Dr. Jonathan Sarfati of CMI stopped by Phoenix for our Four Year Radio Anniversary. Dr. Sarfati is unique: a New Zealander, master chess player, ethnically Jewish, an excellent speaker, on fire for God and a knowledgeable scientist with a doctorate. You will enjoy this talk.

Description: We can tell when something shows evidence of having a human designer. When things in “nature” show those same characteristics—only on a much more complex level—it makes sense to attribute that to a Designer.  Jonathan discusses several evidences of magnificent design in nature, including DNA, molecular machines, the complexity of the cell, and more.  He also demolishes arguments of ‘bad design’.
