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’.
