On this episode of ID the Future, Joshua Youngkin interviews Discovery Institute President Bruce Chapman about the implications of the recent lawsuit between the American Freedom Alliance (AFA) and the California Science Center (CSC). The CSC, a government-run institution, canceled the AFA’s screening of Darwin’s Dilemma in an act of censorship of the intelligent design viewpoint and violation of first amendment rights. Chapman discusses why the CSC’s agreement to pay $110,000 to the AFA is a significant victory for champions of both free speech and free intellectual inquiry.
