Show Links:



Thomas E. Woodward is Research Professor at Trinity College of Florida. He also directs Trinity’s University Center as well as the C.S. Lewis Society--a re-launching of the original C.S. Lewis Society which began on the Princeton University campus in 1975. Dr. Woodward writes and lectures on topic in apologetics, the legacy of C.S. Lewis, and the history of scientific debate over evolution. Especially he has probed the arguments for and against a newer scientific theory known as “intelligent design.” He also teaches on philosophy, theology, and communication theory.

After graduating from Princeton University (B.A. in the Department of History and Program of Latin-American Studies, 1972), he completed his Ph.D. in the Rhetoric of Science in 2001 at the University of South Florida. His dissertation—“Aroused from Dogmatic Slumber”—was revised and published in 2003 as Doubts about Darwin: A History of Intelligent Design, receiving recognition from Christianity Today in 2004.i In 2006, Baker Books brought out a sequel: Darwin Strikes Back: Defending the Science of Intelligent Design.

Dr. Woodward’s focus on DNA and epigenetics was inspired by the research of the renowned eye surgeon, Dr. James P. Gills. Together, they wrote in 2012 The Mysterious Epigenome: What Lies Beyond DNA.  Earlier, they had collaborated as authors and co-editors of Darwinism under the Microscope.
