Richard Weikart on Michael Ruse and the Darwinian Religion

Intelligent Design The Future show

Summary: On this episode of ID the Future, From Darwin to Hitler author and historian Richard Weikart speaks with Mike Keas about a recent book on Darwinism, Christianity, and war by Michael Ruse. Weikart says that in the course of the book Ruse appears to shift from warning others about treating Darwinism as a secular religion to himself embracing it as such. Weikart also says the book presents Darwinist views on war as more palatable than Christian views, but only manages to do so by ignoring key primary and secondary historical material indispensable to a fair and accurate assessment of the issue.
