On this episode of ID the Future, author and professor Nancy Pearcey draws on her new book Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions About Life and Sexuality to explore two inconsistencies she sees with philosophical materialists. One inconsistency is their unlivable claim that “we have no free will.” The other is the materialist credo to take our cues from nature — except when it comes to the male or female sexual makeup of one’s body.
