Are Science and Religion Incompatible?
On this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin interviews CSC biologist Dr. Jonathan Wells about the intersection of science and religion, and the incompatibility of Darwinian evolution with religion. In his book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design, Wells deals with Darwinism’s war on traditional Christianity. According to Wells there is no inherent conflict between science and religion, and there is no conflict between evolution and religion when evolution is defined as simple change over time. The conflict is between Darwinian evolution, the idea that the origin of all living things are descended from a common ancestor by unguided, undirected processes such as random mutation acting on natural selection. Wells explains how this idea does not fit with traditional Christianity.
