Science is one of one humanity’s crowning achievements, the fruit of human rationality and creativity. Yet — ironically — science is increasingly being misused to devalue human life and deny human dignity. Appealing to science in general and Darwinian biology in particular, strident voices now assert that humans are no more than animals, that morality is an “illusion,” and that our very longing for the transcendent is little more than a fairy tale. Join award-winning author and filmmaker John G. West as he explores some of the chilling ways science is being hijacked today to fuel the devaluation of life — and how new developments in the sciences can help us respond with hope rather than fear.
