Why is the origin of life so important when it comes to the debate between the new atheists and those who see evidence for intelligent design? On this episode of ID the Future, Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Paul Nelson interviews Rabbi Moshe Averick on the clues he gleaned from the new atheists themselves.

Rabbi Averick is the author of the book, Nonsense of a High Order: The Confused and Illusory World of the Atheist. He ran educational programs at UCLA and Northridge University in Los Angeles, and then became one of the founding faculty members of Aish Toronto and later at the Shaalvim Rabbinical Seminary in Israel.
