Darwin Day in America Exposes Terrible Cost of Social Darwinism for Faith and Culture

Darwin Day in America by John G. West tells the disturbing story of scientific expertise run amuck, exposing how an ideological interpretation of Darwinian biology and reductionist science have been used to degrade American culture and fuel a relentless march from democracy to technocracy in criminal justice, welfare, business, education, and bioethics. The book has been released in an expanded paperback edition in 2015 featuring a brand new chapter on “Scientism in the Age of Obama—and Beyond.”
