Today on ID the Future we feature a special video podcast of the trailer for Darwin Day in America: How Our Politics and Culture Have Been Dehumanized in the Name of Science, the new book by CSC Senior Fellow John West out this November from ISI Books.

With harrowing studies in crime, welfare, education, and medicine, West builds the compelling case for how Darwinism has affected views on matters as foundational as morality, free will, and religion. There is a human cost to scientific materialism, and Darwin Day in America is a sobering look at the consequences of carrying Darwinian logic out over the last century in America.
