In this fascinating interview, Phillip Johnson offers his unique insight into the philosophical basis of modern Darwinian theory and the many scientific problems which confront it. With his breadth of knowledge and keen intellect, Professor Johnson brings a fresh perspective to the timeless issue of origins.
Phillip Johnson answers more than 20 questions, including: • How does a lawyer’s perspective help in evaluating scientific theories? • What do you consider to be the best evidence for evolution? • What do you consider to be the major problems in Darwinian theory? • If Darwinian theory is such poor science, why don’t more scientists reject it? • Why are you convinced that Darwinism is more philosophy than science? • Could scientists come to the conclusion that natural processes prevent major evolutionary change from occurring? • What are the primary reasons that creation is rejected as an alternative to the general theory of evolution? • Does the uncritical teaching of Darwinism undermine support for public education? • Does the uncritical teaching of Darwinism constitute the establishment of a secular religion? • What can be taught legally in the science classroom?
Phillip E. Johnson is a graduate of Harvard and the University of Chicago. He was a law clerk for Chief Justice Earl Warren of the United States Supreme Clourt and has taught law for more than twenty years at the University of California, Berkeley.
