On this episode of ID The Future, CSC Fellow Dr. Richard Weikart, author of From Darwin to Hitler, asks: does Darwinism devalue human life? Some Darwinists deny that Darwinism has any ethical implications at all. In this short clip, Dr. Weikart looks at comments from Darwinists about the animal ancestry of humans and shows how they blurr the distinction between the animal kingdom and humanity, negating the idea of human exceptionalism.
