On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin sits down with Dr. Paul Nelson to hear his take on a recent NYT op-ed authored by University of Washington Professor David Barash. In his article, Prof. Barash explains “The Talk” he gives to his students, in which he insists that science and religion are incompatible. How should students respond to professors that attack their worldviews, and claim to be backed by science? Dr. Nelson gives some advice.
