A meeting of top biologists from around the world at the Royal Society last November was convened to study new trends in evolutionary theory. It has led to speculation that the Neo-Darwinian paradigm is in crisis and is becoming widely rejected in the scientific community.

Intelligent design theorist Stephen Meyer of the Discovery Institute and Perry Marshall, author of ‘Evolution 2.0’. were both present for the conference. They explain what happened, why it matters and their differing views on what it may mean for the future of evolutionary theory and Intelligent Design.
