On this episode of ID The Future, professor and Center for Science & Culture fellow Dr. Richard Weikart discusses a recent attack on esteemed neurobiologist Dr. Ben Carson for his doubts about Darwinian evolution. Carson is the speaker at Emory University’s 2012 Commencement. Last week, an open letter from a handful of Emory faculty members appeared in the school’s newspaper criticizing Carson’s lack of respect for evolution and accusing him of making inappropriate statements about ethics and morality. Weikart explores the implications of evolutionary ethics and sheds light on this current academic freedom issue.
