Echoes of War

Michael Ruse, a professor of philosophy at Florida State University who delivered the 2006 Townsend Lecture at the University of South Carolina says the division between evolution and intelligent design parallels that of the North and South following the Civil War. The North, Ruse argues, became "European, modern" and embraced science while the South turned increasingly to the Bible for comfort.

"Evolution is a litmus test for a much deeper cultural divide that we've got in this country. Very much the cultural divide we saw in the last election," said Ruse.
