This week on State of Belief, host Welton Gaddy is back from Madrid, Spain and he speaks with Rabbi Brad Hirschfield about the recent interfaith conference they attended.  And, what do Fundamentalists get wrong when they disparage Darwin? Author and scientist Karl Giberson talks about how it’s possible to be a Christian and believe in evolution. Plus, journalist Sarah Posner discusses the week’s religion and politics news…


James Dobson endorsing McCain? The two presidential candidates at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church?  …Sarah Posner, author of The Fundamental List column for The American Prospect, joins Welton to discuss some of the week’s top headlines.

Nearly 80 years after the Scopes “Monkey” Trial, the creationism vs. evolution debate drags on.  Science professor and author Karl Giberson speaks with Welton about what anti-evolution crusaders get wrong about Darwin.  Karl Giberson is the author of Saving Darwin: How to Be a Christian and Believe in Evolution. 

Rabbi Brad Hirschfield and Welton discuss the recent interfaith conference in Madrid, hosted by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.  Rabbi Hirschfield is the host of a new interfaith program, American Pilgrimage, on Bridges TV.
