Electrons to Enlightenment

Part Four

 

Polls show that nearly half of all Americans believe the Biblical story of creation, while only a quarter accept evolution. The philosopher Daniel Dennett thinks we need to "break the spell" of religion. But creationist Paul Nelson says evolution simply can't explain certain mysteries. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge it's Debating Darwin, part four of "Electrons to Enlightenment: A Special Series on Science and Religion."
