Mathematician Calls Darwinism Intellectually Weak

Ad Feedback

Ever since Darwin's theory of evolution came out 150 years ago, there has been controversy over the issue -- and the critics remain to this day.
Dr. David Berlinski is one of them. The mathematician and author is perhaps best known for his appearance in the movie Expelled about the controversy over intelligent design as an alternative to evolution.
In the film, Berlinski describes Darwin's theory as intellectually weak.
"One of my prevailing doctrines about Darwinian theory is -- man, that thing is just a mess. It's like looking into a room full of smoke. Nothing in the theory is precisely, clearly, carefully defined or delineated," he said.

His forthcoming book, The Deniable Darwin, further explores his criticism of Darwin's theory. 

Berlinski, who is Jewish, is especially critical of how Darwin's writings fueled the ideas of the Nazis and Hitler.

"One was English, one was German," Berlinski said. "Nonetheless if you open "Mein Kampf," and read it -- especially if you can read it in German -- the correspondence between Darwinian idea and Nazi ideas just leaps from the page."

Also, Berlinski's book, The Devil's Delusion, takes shots at the new atheism and its connection to Darwin. He finds the atheists' criticism of religion both unreasonable and shallow. 

Dr. David Berlinski appeared on the Tuesday edition of the CBN Newschannel's Midday program to discuss the impact of Darwinism and the new atheism on today's society and how parents should respond.
