On this episode of ID the Future, philosopher Logan Gage speaks with Sarah Chaffee about the new book Aquinas and Evolutionby Fr. Michael Chaberek.

Dr. Gage says Fr. Chaberek’s book counters that pressure and shows how “Thomistic” evolution contradicts Aquinas.
In this episode of IDTF, CSC’s Logan Gage discusses the “new” atheists’ approach to religion as a byproduct of evolution.

On this episode of ID The Future CSC’s Logan Gage asks, who wrote Richard Dawkins’ latest book, The God Delusion? Gage interviews AEI’s Joe Manzari who questioned Dawkins about this at a recent event promoting the book. A strong determinist, which Dawkins would seem to be as a staunchly atheistic Darwinist, believes that everything is pre-determined by material processes. So, taking credit for writing a book is illogical. Does Dawkins believe determinism is true? Does he think people are responsible for their actions or not?
