Hour 1: The Cost Of Control

We all wish we had more control and the peace and security it implies. Technology, science, and medicine promise us this kind of mastery over our world, but it's an illusion. Our guest will help us discover the real power God has given us to exercise influence over ourselves and our lives.

Hour 2: Science In An Age Of Unreason

Science is in trouble. Real questions in desperate need of answers—especially those surrounding ethnicity, gender, climate change, and almost anything related to ‘health and safety’—are swiftly buckling to the fiery societal demands of what ought to be rather than what is. These foregone conclusions may be comforting, but each capitulation to modernity’s whims threatens the integrity of scientific inquiry. Can true, fact-based discovery be redeemed? Our guest, a legendary professor of psychology and biology, will join us to unveil the identity crisis afflicting today’s scientific community, and provides an actionable path to recovery. With intellectual depth and literary flair, he will answer questions like: Is science, especially the science of evolution, a religion? Can ethics be derived from science at all? How sound is social science, particularly surrounding today’s most controversial topics? How can passions be separated from facts?
