(Gala Talk)
Darwin’s Deadly Idea
How the Misuse of Science Fuels the Devalution of Life—and What We Can Do about It

Science is one of one humanity’s crowning achievements, the fruit of human reason and creativity. Yet—ironically—science is being misused to devalue human life. How has an acceptance of Darwinian biology helped to facilitate the notion that morality is relative and that our desire for the transcendent is psychological in nature? 

Join award-winning author and filmmaker John G. West as he explores some of the ways science is being hijacked and how new developments in the sciences can help us boldly respond with hope.

The Darwinian Roots of the Devaluation of Life

Ideas have consequences, and Charles Darwin’s idea that life developed through an unguided material process has had momentous consequences for both human thought and public policy. In this talk, award-winning author and filmmaker John G. West will discuss how Darwinian biology played a pivotal role in the development of eugenics, scientific racism, abortion, and other anti-life practices during the past century-and-a-half. He will also discuss current efforts to suppress the Darwinian roots of the devaluation of life—and why telling the true history of Darwinian social policy matters.

John G. West, PhD, is Vice President of the Seattle-based Discovery Institute and Associate Director of the Institute’s Center for Science and Culture. Formerly the Chair of the Department of Political Science and Geography at Seattle Pacific University, West is an award-winning author and documentary filmmaker who has written or edited 12 books, including Darwin Day in America: How Our Politics and Culture Have Been Dehumanized in the Name of ScienceThe Magician’s Twin: C.
