On this episode of ID the Future, Joshua Youngkin takes a look at an open letter that Professor Massimo Pigliucci, philosopher and evolutionary biologist, wrote for his “Community of Reason,” which he describes as “the broad set encompassing skeptics, atheists and secular humanists.” Pigliucci’s criticism is that many that claim to be the defenders of reason cling to their own irrational scientific, philosophical, and political beliefs, rather than engaging in dialogue or building critiques out of logic and evidence.

Pigliucci’s thoughts on the subject can be read at his blog.
