On this episode of
ID the Future, hear more from Dr. John West on why our views on human origins matter, excerpted from a recent talk he gave at a “Science and Human Origins” conference in Coeur d’Alene, ID. Dr. West draws from history and from current society to demonstrate how Darwinian theory erodes traditional beliefs about humans, and illustrates the consequences of a Darwinian perspective of human life.
