Evolution News


If you had an opportunity to confute and confound your Darwinist friends, but a limited amount of time in which to do it, what challenge would you put to them?

On a classic episode of ID the Future, responding to this query from Evolution News editor David Klinghoffer, they discuss their primary objections to neo-Darwinian theory.

For Berlinski, a mathematician and author of The Deniable Darwin, the problem is quantitative and methodological. For Denton, a geneticist and author of the new Discovery Institute Press book Children of Light: The Astonishing Properties of Light that Make Us Possible, the problem is empirical. Don’t miss this engaging discussion.
