On this episode of ID The Future CSC associate director Dr. John West explains that when it comes to public policy dissenting viewpoints are critically important. Darwinists are quick to claim that science isn’t democratic and because Darwinism is the dominant theory supported by a majority of scientists students should learn only the evidence that supports it.

Dr. West’s comments are taken from “Evolution and Intelligent Design: An Exchange,” a panel at a recent conference sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council which also included Brown University biologist Dr. Ken Miller and Mark Ryland of the Institute for the Study of Nature.
