EPISODE DESCRIPTION

As the world reacts to the depravity of Anders Breivik's cold-blooded killings, the mainstream media is quick to label the heinous crimes as an act of fundamentalist Christian terrorism. Is this really the complete story of Breivik's underlying motivations? In his manifesto, Breivik explicitly identifies himself as a Christian, but at the same time makes it clear that he views the label as a pragmatic political tool, not a religious statement. In this episode of ID the Future, John West gives a thorough account of the scientific fundamentalism and Social Darwinist ideals that ultimately inspired the murderous rampage of Anders Breivik.
