The popular king of horror stories, Stephen King, told NPR in an interview published Tuesday that he believes in God and intelligent design, and shared about his personal faith experience.
"If you say, 'Well, OK, I don't believe in God. There's no evidence of God,' then you're missing the stars in the sky and you're missing the sunrises and sunsets and you're missing the fact that the bees pollinate all these crops and keep us alive and the way that everything seems to work together," said the author of The Shining, The Green Mile, and Dreamcatcher, which were all adapted into full-length motion pictures.
The cosmos, he tells NPR, is "built in a way that to me suggests intelligent design.

Join Discovery Institute staff and associates in Greater Philadelphia on April 5 and 6 for the 2013 Westminster Conference on Science & Faith. The event will be held at Covenant Fellowship Church, and is headlined by Oxford mathematician and philosopher Professor John Lennox, and leading intelligent design theorist and philosopher of science Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell.
The theme is origins: of the cosmos, of increasingly complex life, and of life itself.
ORIGINS 2013, the joint annual meeting of the Creation Biology Society and the Creation Geology Society, will be held in Pittsburgh, PA on August 2-4.

Technical sessions will be held in conjunction with the ICC meetings. They are currently soliciting abstracts on any geological, or related topic, pertaining to creation.
While the Craig-Rosenburg was not specifically a debate on intelligent design, a few of the points William Lane Craig argues for the existence of a non-contingent, pure being have to do with fine-tuning.
Here is the audio of the debate.
Here is the summary of the debate.
As reported by ENV...Despite clear evidence of discrimination presented at trial, a California Superior Court Judge has turned down an anti-discrimination claim filed against NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) by a former employee subjected to mistreatment after sharing his views on intelligent design (ID) with some of his co-workers.
David Coppedge, a 14-year JPL veteran and team lead computer administrator on the Cassini Mission to Saturn, faced harassment and retaliation after occasionally lending ID-related DVDs to coworkers. After an angry supervisor forbade him from continuing to circulate the DVDs or even from mentioning the subject of intelligent design, Coppedge immediately complied, but he was reprimanded and demoted nonetheless. Coppedge eventually had to file suit to protect his rights, but JPL then terminated him.
Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture is announcing two intensive nine-day seminars on intelligent design for college and graduate students during the summer of 2013.
"We're fully aware that ardent defenders of long-entrenched ideas like Darwinism aren't likely to change their minds," says senior fellow Dr. Jay Richards who oversees the seminar series. "So we're investing in the next generation of scientists and scholars. This year we'll welcome 40 students from all over the world, focusing on two distinct study tracks."

Evolution has become a favorite topic of the news media recently, but for some reason, they never seem to get the story straight. The staff at Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture started this Blog to set the record straight and make sure you knew "the rest of the story".
A blogger from New England offers his intelligent reasoning.
We are a group of individuals, coming from diverse backgrounds and not speaking for any organization, who have found common ground around teleological concepts, including intelligent design. We think these concepts have real potential to generate insights about our reality that are being drowned out by political advocacy from both sides. We hope this blog will provide a small voice that helps rectify this situation.

Intelligent Design The Future is a multiple contributor weblog whose participants include the nation's leading design scientists and theorists: biochemist Michael Behe, mathematician William Dembski, astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, philosophers of science Stephen Meyer, and Jay Richards, philosopher of biology Paul Nelson, molecular biologist Jonathan Wells, and science writer Jonathan Witt. Posts will focus primarily on the intellectual issues at stake in the debate over intelligent design, rather than its implications for education or public policy.
