Show 1781 David Berlinski—Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions

This ACU show consist of 2 segments from The Hoover Institution’s show called Uncommon Knowledge with Peter Robinson.

Segment 1- David Berlinski—Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions

David Berlinski is the author of a number of books, including the recent volumes One, Two, Three: Absolutely Elementary Mathematics and The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions.

Berlinski asserts that "a great many men and women have a dull, hurt, angry sense of being oppressed by the sciences. They are frustrated by endless scientific boasting. They suspect that ... the scientific community holds them in contempt. They are right to feel this way." With Darwin's theory of evolution as a point of departure, he takes scientists to task for their antireligious assumptions and explores the conflict between the scientific community and those with firmly held religious beliefs.
