In this podcast, Casey Luskin presents his piece from U.S. News and World Report titled, "Darwin, Intelligent Design, and Freedom of Discovery on Evolutionists' Holy Day." Luskin describes how many modern day evolutionists reject Charles Darwin's call for academic freedom in the debate over evolution.

Does Darwinism lend support more naturally to a capitalist moral-economic perspective or to a Marxist one?

On this episode of ID the Future, David Klinghoffer explores the deep Darwinian roots of Communism, arguing that, while Marx had already begun sketching the outlines of his ideas before Darwin published the Origin of Species, he is fairly called a Darwinist, and the men who translated Marxism into practical political terms in the form of Soviet terror were evolutionary thinkers, just as they themselves claimed to be.
