Listen: Greater Science Literacy Leads to Greater Acceptance of Evolution…Oh, Really?

A new episode of ID the Future features “In the Market” radio host Janet Parshall interviewing Center for Science & Culture Senior Fellow Jonathan Witt, co-author of the recent book Heretic: One Scientist’s Journey from Darwin to Design. Witt and Parshall discuss Heretic, some other brave anti-Darwin heretics, and a recent scholarly study claiming to show that greater science education and science literacy encourages acceptance of evolution. 

Witt was skeptical when he heard that. He highlights what he sees as some glaring problems in the study’s survey, and in the way Darwinian evolution is normally taught. Download the podcast or listen to it here.
