The Reasonable Ineffectiveness of Mathematics in the Life Sciences

4/10/2024
Well-known biologist and author Sy Garte, author of the new book “Science and Faith in Harmony” joins Perry. They explore the alignment between science and faith and probe purpose in biology. They discuss the challenges of applying mathematical concepts to biological systems, recognizing that EVERY rule in biology has an exception. The two discuss changing norms in academic discourse, the new journal Biocosmos and "The Unreasonable Ineffectiveness of Mathematics in the Life Sciences.” Sy's book: https://amzn.to/49px5MD Sy's website: www.sygarte.com Sy's X feed: x.com/sygarte Hosted on Acast.

Understanding Living Systems with Ray and Denis Noble

8/30/2023
The overwhelming success of genetics and molecular biology in the 1970s had an unfortunate side effect. DNA became the 'be-all' and 'end-all' of biology, and “the selfish gene” became the new secular pop religion. Physiology and medicine suffered great blows from this shift. The human genome project, though valuable, did not deliver even 10% of what it promised, and the consequences to healthcare have been devastating. The new book Understanding Living Systems by Raymond and Denis Noble is an easy-to-read guide to the New Biology that brings purpose back into nature and respects the agency and autonomy of each organism and its systems.

The Truth About AI that not 1 Video in 100 is Acknowledging

7/28/2023
Bryan Trilli is a serial entrepreneur who owns a company called Optimized Marketing that trains machine learning programmers to write better code. In this interview, he forcefully challenges the fiction of the “AI Singularity” showing that it’s impossible for this to happen given current technology. Consequently, we are asking all of the wrong questions. In this interview, we discuss what the real questions are. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Johnjoe McFadden: Occam's Razor and Quantum Biology

7/18/2023
Occam's Razor says the simplest explanation is the best. While its application has many subtleties, it tells us that the best model of theory is the one that's most elegant and invokes the fewest extraneous explanations. Johnjoe McFadden is a professor at the University of Surrey in the UK and we discuss simplicity and the mind-bending world of quantum biology. Website: https://johnjoemcfadden.co.uk/ Hosted on Acast.

When Dinosaur Books Are More Dangerous Than Playboy Magazine

4/24/2023
Scott Ransom’s mom grounded him from the nonfiction section of the library so that he would not be corrupted by evolutionary ideas from godless secular scientists. But the questions persisted and the fascination grew. Many years later, he wrote a book reconciling modern evolutionary science with ancient Hebrew texts. His book ...And It Was So: How Modern Science Sheds New Light on the Biblical Account of Creation goes far beyond the stereotypical debates to land in new insights.

The Threshold: Leading in the Age of AI - Interview with Nick Chatrat

3/1/2023
For many years, we humans have bench-marked ourselves against machines without even realizing it. Many scientists believe that humans really are just machines. Nick Chatrath sharply disagrees and says that the age of AI is going to demand that humans be more human than ever before. He insists that we've never needed a bridge between science and the humanities more than we need it right now. This extends to all aspects of leadership and organization, from startup companies to institutions and governments. Nick Chatrath's book The Threshold: Leading in the Age of AI Hosted on Acast.

From Rebellious Teenager to Young Adult: Intelligent Design Grows Up

2/23/2023
Paul Nelson of the Discovery Institute blogged about my interview with Joana Xavier lamenting that we did not fully endorse intelligent design. This created a perfect opportunity for us to sit down and talk with Paul in person and discuss our agreements and differences. Here we explore the gray zone between “life is a miracle” and “no miracles allowed” and we ask the question: How can a design paradigm enhance medicine and science research? Joana Xavier is a researcher at University College London and is a staff member with Evolution 2.0. Paul's blog post on Evolution News & Science Today. Perry's Evolution 2.0 interview with Joana.

From Evolution to Cancer: The Oral History of Our 7-year Journey

5/17/2022
The book Evolution 2.0 devotes two pages to the subject of cancer and it wasn't until two years after the book was published that this fact received any attention: It is not possible to understand cancer without an accurate understanding of evolution and vice versa. This has now expanded to five very exciting research projects. This interview traces the history of all of them. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

There’s More to Life than Description

4/18/2022
Science describes things by quantifying them - weighing, measuring, and counting - but there is a dimension of being that goes beyond all these things. Science, despite its “objectivity”, is a feature of that subjective world. Anthony O’Hear OBE, a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Buckingham, UK, discusses his new book Transcendence, Creation and Incarnation and explains why faith, hope, and love make more sense of the human experience and even of science itself.
