Conservatism and Darwinism–Compatible, Symbiotic, or ….

There is a discussion going on in conservative circles regarding intelligent design. Some conservatives claim that Darwinism is the scientific underpinning of conservativism. The American Enterprise Institute recently sponsored a debate on the matter. Tom Bethell reports on the discussion at American Spectator. This is a matter that should be of interest among us. How much “sharing” is or can there be between conservatives and Darwinists? Can a Darwinist be a true conservative? Can a supporter of intelligent design or believer in Creation share a common basis with Darwinists in understanding the world in which we live and in making moral decisions?

I come away thinking that Darwinists want to co-opt conservative thought. Check out the report. There is a lot to think about and reason to be cautious over against just any one who claims to be conservative. They may not share our basic values.
