We discussed three arguments that he addresses in one of his contributions to The End of Christianity: the argument from biological complexity, the argument from the origin of life, and the argument from universal fine-tuning. We also discussed the generalizability of Bayesian inference and a few less revolutionary ideas as well, such as the ethics and etiquette of encountering unusual symbolism on t-shirts."

  • "Why Do Nutcrackers Work?" "It's not enough to know that a nutcracker works; a scientist needs to know why. Historian Richard Carrier recounts how, in ancient Greece, pondering the nutcracker led to the physics of levers. He describes how Aristotle and others shaped the beginnings of Western scientific thought: the notion that knowledge of the natural world relies on being able to question, test, reproduce and improve the accuracy of what's believed to be true. He explains why he sees science as a practice rooted in values, how it protects us from our own erroneous tendencies, and why questioning authority helps foster scientific thinking."
