Ep#58 – Jerry Coyne – Faith Vs. Fact


I’m delighted to be joined by Jerry Coyne on The #GSPodcast. We’ll be delving into the debate regarding whether it’s possible to reconcile faith claims with our scientific understanding, which is the topic of Jerry’s new book Faith vs. Fact: Why Science and Religion Are Incompatible’. We also take the time to discuss ‘Trigger Warnings’, Creationism, Evolution, troubling polling data and how exactly one can become an atheist by listening to The Beatles.

Also available on iTunes and Stitcher.
