Darwin-free David Berlinski is always fun, also raises your IQ

Here’s mathematician Berlinski, decidedly not a Darwin flunky:

David Berlinski earned a Ph.D. in philosophy from Princeton and has taught mathematics and philosophy at universities in the United States and France. He is the author of such books as A Tour of the CalculusThe Advent of the AlgorithmNewton’s GiftThe Deniable Darwin, and The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions, as well as several detective novels starring private investigator Aaron Asherfeld. (His site posts a listing.) He lives in Paris, though he is a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture in Seattle. He is all that as well as the father of Claire Berlinski. In most rooms he enters he raises the IQ level at least a few points.

Berlinski recently sat down with Peter Robinson to discuss a variety of topics related to The Devil’s Delusion. Through our arrangement with the Hoover Institution, we are pleased to present the interview in its entirety.

UD News staff admire his daughter Claire Berlinski very much as well.

I enjoyed this conversation very much on points. The thing to note is Mr Berlinski's stressing about the quality of evidence that evolution must provide before even considered as a viable option for biological heritage. Then how there can be group think from people who are introduced and committed to what are seen as higher professions with higher standards and results of intelligence. So everyone goes along with entry level presumptions and this is why evolution of atheism is prominent in academic circles. not from independent thought by bright people. I do agree evolution has great natural interests in having a "intellectual;" influence over society and in replacement of Christianity (Protestant especially). Yet i don't think there are other power ambitions . philosophy, intellect, religion they seem content with . Robert Byers

"UD News Staff"? Isn't that a staff of one? Sorry, but sounds kind of ridiculous to call it a "staff", especially since we everybody here knows it's jut Ms O'Leary in another disguise. Or does Ms O'Leary expect that before long "News" will have its own newsroom and White House correspondents? woodford
