Darwinists often point out that Darwin's theory is supported by a majority of scientists and so only the evidence that supports the theory should be presented to students.

Perhaps the most celebrated defense attorney in the first half of the twentieth century, Clarence Darrow is best known for his role at the Scopes "monkey trial" in the 1920s. But he also was an early champion of the idea that criminals should not be held responsible for their crimes.

Skepticism of Darwinian evolution remains high, with well over half of American's doubtful that Darwin's theory adequately explains the intricate complexity of the natural world that they see around them. Most Darwinists claim that such skepticism is motivated simply by personal religious beliefs. On this episode of IDTF, CSC's Casey Luskin shows that for many students today the skepticism is based on science.
