David Berlinski was brought up in New York City, educated at Columbia College and gained a PhD in philosophy from Princeton University. He later became a Fellow of the Faculty in Mathematics and a Post Doctoral Fellow in molecular biology at Columbia University. He has taught philosophy, mathematics, and English at Stanford, Rutgers, Columbia, the Universite de Paris at Jussieu, the University of Puget Sound, the University of Santa Clara, San Jose State University and San Francisco State University.
He has been a fellow at both the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis and the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques. He is the author of works on systems analysis, differential topology, theoretical biology, analytic philosophy, and the philosophy of mathematics, as well as the author of "A Tour of the Calculus", "The Advent of the Algorithm", and "Newton's Gift". Berlinski is currently a Senior Fellow with Discovery Institute.
The producers of the critically acclaimed documentary "Icons of Evolution" recently sat down for an interview with Dr. Berlinski. The interview was a lucid and entertaining critique of Darwinian evolution.
Here is a clip of Berlinski in action:
Recently, Ben Stein, scholar, economist, writer and now Hollywood producer, has made a film about the exclusion from US schools and colleges of any critique of the dogmas of Darwinism and Evolutionism.
This film is called Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.
The film is an expose of the way in which criticism of the dogmas of Darwinism and Evolutionism is ruthlessly excluded and expelled from colleges, schools and academies across the USA.
It features interviews with David Berlinski and ends with Richard Dawkins admitting that aliens, intelligent designers, from another planet may have been responsible for human life.
Berlinski is the most impressive of the interviewees and calmly demolishes the manner in which thin-skinned and intellectually unimpressive Evolutionists are simply unable to respond to his simple questions and rebuttals of standard dogmas of evolution that are taught in schools and colleges and are not allowed to be challenged.
Berlinski is neither a Christian nor a Fundamentalist but is a sceptical, secular Jew. But he is also a formidable mathematician. He accepts those forms of evolution which may be called "micro-evolution" i.e. changes within various biological groupings but he challenges the evidence for what has been called "macro-evolution" i.e. the kinds of changes that are now regarded as "proven" by "science" and which therefore cannot be challenged.
He makes it clear that this is not science but dogma and says why - eloquently, engagingly, calmly and rationally.
No wonder the dogmatic Evolutionists are calling him "incorrigible".
They simply cannot answer him and are terrified even to try.
Go to Youtube and see some of the childish and deeply pathetic attempts to mock and deride Berlinski.
This says more about the paucity of intellectual integrity of some Evolutionists than any opponent could ever say.

This is a powerful thinker and hugely more interesting, persuasive and powerful than ever Dawkins could dream of.
