On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Discovery Institute Center for Science and Culture Fellow Nancy Pearcey. Discussing her new book, Finding Truth: Five Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes, Pearcey highlights contradictions of evolution’s claims regarding human reason. If Neo-Darwinian theory postulates that man’s knowledge is not necessarily true – simply a product of natural selection – how can it also claim that the idea of God is a mis-firing of the human brain?

Read excerpt from Pearcey’s book about this issue at Evolution News and Views.
