(Video) David Berlinski: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions

If you’re not a fan of “Uncommon Knowledge” I’m happy to recommend it. This might be a good episode to start with — it’s with David Berlinski — a man I’m not sure I’d heard of before but now I’m a fan of his as well. Here is the show’s promo:

Berlinski asserts that “a great many men and women have a dull, hurt, angry sense of being oppressed by the sciences. They are frustrated by endless scientific boasting. They suspect that… the scientific community holds them in contempt. They are right to feel this way.” With Darwin’s theory of evolution as a point of departure, he takes scientists to task for their antireligious assumptions and explores the conflict between the scientific community and those with firmly held religious beliefs.
