Meet Samuel S. Chen

Director
Intelligent Design Undergraduate Research Center,
A Student Division of Access Research Network

Samuel S. Chen was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1987 and raised in Wescosville, Pennsylvania, a suburb of the city of Allentown.  He graduated from Emmaus High School in Emmaus, Pennsylvania in June of 2005 and is a student at the Honors College at Baylor University in Waco, Texas where he is double-majoring in philosophy and political science.

Chen has been involved with the intelligent design/evolution debate for several years, researching, writing about, speaking on, and debating the issue as well hosting speakers such as Dr. Samuel Neidbala, the former CSO of Orasure Technologies, Inc. and current associate professor of the sciences at Lehigh University and Dr. Michael J. Behe, professor of biological sciences at Lehigh University and author of the best-selling book Darwin’s Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution. It was the intense negative reaction to Behe’s invitation to Chen’s high school that led him to join the intelligent design movement.

Chen’s current work deals with the theories of evolution and intelligent in the public school science classroom and the issue of academic freedom in education. He is a member of the Intelligent Design Evolution Awareness Center (IDEA Center), a representative of the Access Research Network (ARN), and the director of ARN’s student division, the Intelligent Design Undergraduate Research Center (IDURC).
