Vocal Point-Dr. Richard Weikart

Topic: Evolution and the Devaluing of Human Life

In the 2016 book, The Death of Humanity: And the Case for Life, history professor, Dr. Richard Weikart sets out to show “that quite a few prominent intellectuals manifest a high regard for the value of human life — distorted though it may be — that is contrary to their bleak philosophies, which preach the meaninglessness and purposelessness of human existence.” Weikart wrote an essay recently on the devaluing of human life because of the acceptance of evolution. The article is called, “Whatever Happened to Human Rights?: Morality and C. S. Lewis’s Abolition of Man.” Dr. Richard Weikart, who also wrote From Darwin to Hitler and Hitler’s Religion, joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this conflict in worldviews. www.darwintohitler.com
