This episode of ID the Future offers another sample from the new audio version of Stephen Meyer’s bestselling Darwin’s Doubt. The previous podcast covered the first half of Chapter 1. Now the rest of the chapter. Here Meyer takes a closer look at Darwin’s early intellectual opponent, Louis Agassiz. Why did the great Harvard paleontologist reject Darwin’s theory? Was he really, as some argue, a hidebound traditionalist, too mired in minutia and German idealism to catch the new wave? Learn why the historical evidence paints a very different picture.
