Totalitarian Science: Past, Present, and Future?

Totalitarian Science

On a new episode of ID the Future we hear the first part of a panel discussion from FreedomFest 2018, where John West and Richard Weikart speak on “The Danger of Totalitarian Science.”

Download the podcast or listen to it here.

Science is a great blessing, but like all exercises of human reason and creativity, it can be abused. When science is considered the only route to knowledge, scientific experts are given the right to rule, and science becomes totalitarian.

It happened decades ago, as documented in the Discovery Institute film Human Zoos: America’s Forgotten History of Scientific Racism. But don’t think it’s all in the past. As the panelists explain, totalitarian science remains with us today.
