EPISODE DESCRIPTION

On this episode of ID The Future, the second of two in this series, host David Boze continues a discussion with Discovery Institute fellow Dr. Richard Weikart, author of two books exploring the links between Darwinian theory and Nazism. On this podcast, Weikart talks about the moral and logical challenges involving evolutionary ethics. Is morality simply
"an illusion fobbed off on us by our genes to get us to cooperate", as biologists Michael Ruse and E. L. Wilson suggest? What did Darwin believe about morality? Is there an objective morality, or is it relative and evolving even today? Listen as Weikart builds a compelling case against evolutionary ethics and recent criticism of his books.

Weikart is the author of two books on the subject: From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics, and Racism in Germany and Hitler's Ethic: The Nazi Pursuit of Evolutionary Progress.

ALSO: Read Weikart's detailed response on Evolution News & Views to recent criticism of his books.
