On this episode of ID the Future, author and Center for Science and Culture fellow Nancy Pearcey responds to the claim that the design-oriented view of biology “lost” to an overwhelming scientific revolution, Darwinism, and subsequent discoveries have only put more nails in the design argument’s coffin.

There was a revolution, Pearcey acknowledges, but at its core it was philosophical and ideological, one with no room for intelligent design in biology. “Without Hegel there would have been no Darwin,” Pearcey explains.
