Benjamin Wiker, Ph.D.

Benjamin Wiker obtained his Ph.D. in theological ethics from Vanderbilt University, then went on to teach at a variety of institutions, including Marquette University, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, Thomas Aquinas College, and the Franciscan University of Steubenville. He came to attention in 2002 with the publication of Moral Darwinism: How We Became Hedonists. In this book, Wiker aims to show how Darwinism by its very nature completely undermines the ethical foundations of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam because what he sees as its materialist cosmology is incompatible with any concept of natural law. Wiker became a member of the Discovery Institute, a think tank supporting this idea and intelligent design, soon after the publication of the book.
