How Supporters of Evolution Encourage Violations of the Establishment Clause

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines the double standard advocated by the evolution lobby in public schools. "Either a viewpoint is religious and unconstitutional to advocate as correct or critique as false in public schools, or it's scientific and fair game for both advocacy and critique in public schools," says Luskin.

What does this mean for evolution and intelligent design, and what does the case law say? Tune in to find out.

This podcast is excerpted from a law review article published in Liberty University Law Review. The article, "Zeal for Darwin's House Consumes Them: How Supporters of Evolution Encourage Violations of the Establishment Clause," is available here.

Is Darwinian Evolution a Theory, Fact, or Hypothesis?

On this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin discusses a paper by Northern Arizona University philosopher Peter Kosso that challenges the typical definition of theory used by the Darwin lobby. When attacking opponents, Darwin lobbyists, such as those in the National Academy of Sciences, have defined "theory" as necessarily requiring a vast body of evidence. But is that what "theory" really means? Some people even describe Darwinian evolution to be both theory and fact. Tune in as Luskin clarifies these terms and reveals methods we can use to challenge Darwinian evolution without getting caught up in an endless argument of semantics.
