On this ID the Future from the vault, hear the final segment in a five-part conversation between host Casey Luskin and neurosurgeon Michael Egnor. Dr. Egnor discusses how Europe’s Judeo-Christian culture in the Middle Ages and Renaissance laid the groundwork for the rise of science. Egnor goes on from there to address the claim that the rise of atheism has somehow been a boon to science. Not so, Egnor says. Tune in to hear his explanation.
