Darwin, Hitler, and the Modern Devaluation of Human Life

Date recorded: 23 May 2018 | Speaker: Richard Weikart | Event: ELF Interviews


Since the Enlightenment many secular ideologies have contributed to the devaluing of human life by arguing that human life is the product of chance processes.  This has led to the erosion of the Judeo-Christian sanctity-of-life ethic, spawning the present “culture of death,” where many intellectuals accept abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide, and euthanasia. Peter Saunders, Chief Executive, International Christian Medical and Dental Association (ICMDA), interviews Richard Weikart, Professor of Modern European History, California State University Stanislaus, on these ideologies and a Christian response to them.
