A Man in Conflict

In a recent podcast from the Discovery Institute listeners are taken into an interesting look at Walt Disney.

From the podcast summary,

On this episode of ID The Future, John West, Associate Director of the Center for Science & Culture and author of Walt Disney and Live Action: The Disney Studio’s Live-Action Features of the 1950s and 60s talks about Walt Disney’s life-long fascination with evolution. By exploring the subtle messages promoted by Disney’s theme parks and animated features West shows that evolution rather than being a one-off was an recurring fascination of Disney’s. From the Magic Skyway created for the 1964 World’s Fair to the 1948 animated film Fantasia we see Disney’s recurrent contemplation of evolution.

Give a listen to the podcast and just consider the conflict that existed as well as the questions that West asks at the end.
