Professor Antony Alumkal discusses the Christian right’s intense hostility towards science
June 17, 2017
Read Professor Antony Alumkal’s new book – Paranoid Science: The Christian Right’s War on Reality.
Listen to his interview with KPFA 94.1.
“Through extensive research, Alumkal provides a rich, nuanced, and detailed view of mid-20th-century American evangelicalism’s right-wing political expression and its often dangerous impact on science in the service of the common good. His conclusions indicate that when such a powerful paranoia cannot be deescalated, it must be contained. Education and persuasion are the tools for change, and Alumkal’s book succeeds in both respects.”
