Podcast: The Amateur Society – Assumptions Of The Scientific Method – 06.17.2019

2019.06.18 tAS

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another conversation about the philosophy of science! This conversation examines the definition of the scientific method and the assumptions that are made in its application. In our society many consider science as the primary or even the only way of accessing meaningful truth. In reality, there are important limitations on the scientific method that have a significant impact on our worldviews. Unfortunately, this isn’t an area that gets covered in the standard course of education, but with a bit of determined critical thinking we can all strengthen our perspectives on this critical subject.

Podcast: The Amateur Society – The Fascinating World Of Engineering – 04.29.2019

2019.04.30 AS

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion of the field of engineering! I didn’t study to become an engineer, but recently I’ve discovered a handful of great YouTube channels that have kindled an amateur interest in the subject. Many fascinating questions and experiments are being answered and performed in an accessible manner, and it’s well worth the time to check out these resources. The most important takeaways for me are the importance of practical problem solving and how it can lead to powerful innovation. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Evolution, Science, And Worldview – 04.01.2019

2019.04.01

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion about the scientific method, recent acknowledgements of weaknesses in the neo-Darwinian synthesis, and the connection between science and worldview. This kind of conversation is extremely important, as we all have a responsibility to go at least one step deeper beyond the textbook presentations of leading theories. Such descriptions are usually extremely brief and contain definitive statements. In reality, there are always more questions than answers. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – What Is The Definition Of Life? – 02.04.2019

2019.02.05

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for an important conversation about the definition of life. Whether we look at the biological or the existential definitions, there is intense disagreement about key questions surrounding life that as a society we seem incapable of discussion in a productive way. Each one of us must ask these critical questions as part of an investigation of our own worldviews in order to properly undertake the necessary national conversation that is long overdue. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Our Conversations In 2018 – 12.10.2018

12.11.2018

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a look back on the discussions we have had over the course of the year. It’s been a dynamic and even chaotic year in the world, and we have touched upon major themes across many areas of life including politics, economics, technology, and science. Most of all we have continued to emphasize the importance of worldview, decision making, and being more thoughtful in general. In the summer and full we had extended series on states of being and negotiation respectively. We look forward to another year of motivating, valuable conversations in 2019. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Poincaré Recurrence, Cosmology, And Worldviews – 11.12.2018

DeepSpace

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another conversation about cosmology. The group explores the standard model of the universe, describes the worldview implications of an absolute beginning to space-time, and discusses the interesting concept of Poincaré recurrence. These conversations are always a favorite because they exist at the intersection of worldview, science, math, and philosophy. They are fertile ground for interesting reflection and inquiry.

Podcast: On the Objective – Forgiveness, Healing, And Epigenetics – Pastor Caspar McCloud – 09.12.2018

CasparMcCloud

Join us On the Objective as your host Steven Menking welcomes debut guest Pastor Caspar McCloud for a discussion about forgiveness, healing, and epigenetics. Our understanding of how our minds and bodies work has changed substantially throughout the generations, but in the present we are discovering that the wisdom of God’s Word is more directly applicable than ever. Do we have the faith and forgiveness necessary for healings and miracles? What will God do in us and through us if we earnestly desire to represent him properly? Please share this broadcast with someone who needs to listen. Thanks for joining us On the Objective!
