On this episode of ID the Future, host Ira Berkowitz talks with Rabbi Moshe Averick about his recent Times of Israel article, “From the People Who Brought You the Hydrogen Bomb.” Yes, it’s pointed — straight at scientists. It’s about scientists who jump out of their disciplines, taking the place of priests and shamans and pronouncing upon the place of mankind in the universe. It’s about scientists who say we’re nothing, mere specks on a speck of a planet, yet these scientists consider themselves “humanists” in spite of this outlook. Averick is the author of Nonsense of a High Order: The Confused World of Modern Atheism. Please consider donating to support the IDTF Podcast.Read More ›
