This episode of ID the Future features part one of Casey Luskin’s interview with James Le Fanu, author of Why Us?: How Science Rediscovered the Mystery of Ourselves. Dr. Le Fanu shares his perspective as someone who straddles two worlds, encountering science on a micro level in his practice as a medical doctor, and reflecting on the broader aspects of science and medicine as an author and columnist for the UK’s Daily Telegraph. Dr. Le Fanu explains why he doubts the too-simplistic Darwinian account, where the “facade of knowing” is daily challenged by the inescapable complexity of life.

To learn more about Dr. Le Fanu, visit his website here or read a recent review of his book at Evolution News & Views.
