On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Discovery Institute Center for Science and Culture Fellow Nancy Pearcey. Discussing her book, Finding Truth: Five Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes, Pearcey explains how evolutionary materialism freeloads from religion. She highlights prominent atheists who concede that the concepts of human rights, democracy, and equality originate from the Judeo-Christian worldview.
