On this episode of ID The Future CSC Fellow, Dr. Richard Weikart, author of From Darwin to Hitler asks if Darwinism devalues human life? Some Darwinists deny that Darwinism has any ethical implications at all. In this short clip, Dr. Weikart looks at comments from Darwinists about that animal ancestry of humans and shows how that blurred the distinction between the animal kingdom and humanity, and negates the idea of human exceptionalism.
