On a new episode of ID the FutureFrom Darwin to Hitler author and historian Richard Weikart returns to his conversation with host Michael Keas about a recent book on Darwinism, Christianity, and war by Michael Ruse. Download the episode of listen to it here.

Ruse aims at a surprising conclusion in this book. Weikart says he gets there first of all by overlooking several of the most important early voices on Darwinism and war. And the book’s conclusion? That Christianity should “compromise” with a form of religious Darwinism that Ruse favors, by giving up on core Christian doctrines. Weikart isn’t buying it.
