Today ID The Future presents another excerpt from Jonathan Rosenblum’s “Is Darwinism Kosher?” lecture, delivered at the Discovery Institute on July 26th. In this segment, Rosenblum discusses the ideological biases that permeate the work of many scientists today, and examines their deleterious effects. By embracing neo-Darwinism as the reservoir of knowledge about all things, Rosenblum explains, scientists seek to neutralize any inherent value in human life and quash alternative viewpoints that might contribute to scientific progress.
