World Renowned Cosmologist Frank Tipler on Sci Phi Show!

One of my favorite ID proponents, Frank Tipler, was recently interviewed on the Sci Phi show.
To hear the 28-minute interview, visit: Frank Tipler on Sci Phi show.
Some of Tipler’s ID-related work has appeared in prestigious journals like Nature. One of Tipler’s recent ID-related papers appeared in the journal Reports on Progress in Physics in 2005. Tipler lays out the physics in that technical article which he describes for the layman in his new book The Physics of Christianity.
In addition, Tipler published some of his ID-related work on the Arxiv server. His most recent article is Intelligent Life in Cosmology [March 2007]. Here are some quotes:
Teleology has been completely rejected by evolutionary biologists. This rejection is unfortunate, because, teleology is alive and well in physics
If the laws of physics be for us, who can be against us?
Tipler is author of The Anthropic Cosmological Principle (1987), one of the 3 ID books which began the modern ID movement.
Tipler was a provisional atheist in 1992 when he wrote the book The Physics of Immortality. He describes his subsequent conversion to Christianity in the Sci Phi show interview. That was a complete surprise to me! My name was mentioned in the show because I had consistently described Tipler as a provisional atheist. That used to be the case for Tipler, but his research in physics has now persuaded him that God exists.
