On this ID the Future from the vault, hear a segment from Discovery Institute Vice President John West’s talk given at the Dallas Conference on Science and Faith, on how Darwinism has corroded Western culture. Here he examines the morally poisonous effects of Darwinism on marriage, sexual ethics, and religion, such that virtually anything can be defended as OK, and no particular culture’s ethic is to be preferred over another. Humankind’s spiritual purpose has likewise been eroded. Yet West closes with hope by pointing to moving examples of science in our generation uncovering more and more signs of intelligent design and purpose in nature. As West further notes, a new generation of researchers, including at least one Fulbright scholar, are discovering that materialism should not be the foregone conclusion of contemporary science and that, indeed, there is growing evidence for a cosmic designer. To hear the first half of West’s talk, go here.
