“The heresy of heresies was common sense,” Orwell writes. “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
Our bioethicist colleague Wesley Smith had a very interesting and wide-ranging conversation with Stephen Meyer.
The simplified and misleading science, which is supposed to be so up-to-date as to merit showcasing on the National Mall, retains the element of traditional Darwinian racism.
Dr. Meyer isn’t merely tearing down a competing, nihilistic picture of reality, but instead revealing the positive, meaningful one toward which science increasingly directs our attention.
He covers how “a lightbulb went on” for him about Darwinism, the fatal waiting time problem, why the ballyhooed extended synthesis fails to save the day for evolution, and more.
