On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer and Michael Medved discuss materialism and how it effects our constitution. Not in the sense of buying more ‘stuff’ but instead the particular conception of human nature. The idea of free will, that we are capable of self-governance is under attack. The forced theory that life is the product of an unguided, undirected process implies we don’t have free will. That law and morality is still evolving indicates the need to constantly update our constitution placing the document under threat as never before.
