Darwinism and Atheism: A Marriage Made in Heaven

8/5/2002; 113 minutes

Michael Ruse of Florida State University takes a look at the relationships between evolution and Christianity, from the earliest times, through the work of Charles Darwin, and on to the present, ending with some comments on both the prominent Darwinian atheists like Richard Dawkins, as well as supporters of so-called Intelligent Design. The main theme of the lecture is that Darwinism is a child of Christianity, and that as is usual in parent-children relationships, there is both love and tension. Part of the Science, Religion and the Human Experience series sponsored by UC Santa Barbara. (#6689)
