Did Darwin Kill God?
There are some who believe that Darwin’s theory of the evolution of religion has weakened, partly driven by the publishing phenomenon of Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion. Conor Cunningham said that nothing could be further from the truth.
Cunningham is a firm believer in the theory of evolution, but also a Christian. He believes that the clash between Darwin and God has been hijacked by extremists – the fundamentalist Christians who reject evolution on the one hand, and fundamentalist atheists on the other. Cunningham attempts to undo what he believes are widespread but erroneous assumption in the debate between religion and evolution.
Travel to the Middle East, which shows that from the beginning, Christianity has warned against a literal reading of the biblical account of creation. In Britain, reveals that while the theory of evolution Darwin was well received by the Anglican and Catholic. Instead, he argues that the conflict between Darwin and God has been made by creationists in the 20th century Americans for reasons that had little to do with science and religion and everything to do with politics and morality.
Finally, he comes face to face with some of the most eminent evolutionary biologists, geneticists and philosophers of our time to examine whether recent advances in the theory of evolution, in fact, kill God.
