Episode Summary

EDIT
Keith Ward: Misusing Darwin
AIRED:
Scientists sometimes complain about the introduction of religious ideas into science. But many scientists, especially evolutionary biologists, blatantly introduce materialism into science.In fact neither theism nor materialism are entailed by science. They are philosophical views, and materialism is a highly disputed and problematic philosophical theory, not supported by any major classical philosopher.Many eminent scientists confuse science and philosophy, commit themselves to materialism without seriously considering its problems, and make ill-considered remarks about religion, largely based on the anti-scientific beliefs of a minority of extremist Christians.Creationism should not be taught as science; but neither should materialism. It is time for some scientists to see that their allegedly purely scientific views are often founded on blind prejudice and culpable misunderstanding - Gresham Collegemoreless
