Podcast: The Amateur Society – Via Negativa – 09.09.2019

2019.09.09

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This week we look at an important concept in improvement and growth, via negativa. Our culture has a bias to make additions as our default path to solutions when often times the best starting point is to make subtractions. Whether in our diet, our habits, our careers, and our relationships, there are going to be many things that we know are harmful – or at least not helpful – that we would benefit from removing. This is easier said than done, but an understanding of the critical concepts and dynamics surrounding it may help move us forward on the path to growth. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Origin Of Life – 08.26.2019

2019.08.26

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This week we look at a critical subject in science: the origin of life. It is challenging to assess competing theories about the origin of life because the landscape is laden with worldview baggage. As such, having a genuine discussion typically takes a back seat to personal attacks. For the dedicated amateur, thinking about this subject offers a wide array of insight into how to examine key ideas. The truth about this question has tremendous implications.

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!
