The Godless Spellchecker Podcast

The Godless Spellchecker Podcast is an award winning weekly sceptical show in a conversational, interview format hosted by Stephen Knight. We hear from leading public figures as well as people without a public profile that have equally valuable experiences and ideas to share. The goal is to amplify good ideas and scrutinise bad ones. I think we've all learned something here today.

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.

Author and Philosopher Jonathan Pearce (@ATipplingPhilo) will be dropping by The #GSPodcast to let you know that free will is an illusion. We touch on de-converting theists and the justice system. Also, what can biology and genetics tell us about the likelihood of criminality? Where is god in all this? We also talk about the importance of Neuroscience in the free will debate and discuss the disagreement between Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett. Listen to it – you have no choice.
