EPISODE DESCRIPTION

On this episode of ID the Future, hear about a few cases of scientism acting as a quasi-religion.

These recent pieces of science news illustrate exactly how evolutionary thinking can serve in the role of religious faith as scientific claims are made that go far beyond the evidence.
