There’s no snappy tagline for this episode. It’s not that kind of thing.
I’ve just listened to this episode (found over at Skepticality). I liked the story about Andrew Wiles and Fermat’s last theorem, but the bit I liked above all was the hammer metaphor, how faith and science can coexist without necessarily having to tread on one another’s toes.
I actually wrote a pretentious piece along similar lines in my humblog, which you are warmly welcome to pay a visit to (I’d feel so honoured). Whatever you do, I am pretty sure I will download all of your episodes — you are a storyteller.
Hmmm…That’s kind of strange…
But it was interesting.
What an elegant way to describe a certain type of faith. For a concept that I normally find pretty hard to swallow, you’ve done an excellent job of showing me the good side of it. I’m definitely going to have to sit down and think about this episode for a while.
Hey Patrick- So the Seanachai is $1 a month if I listen, $2 if I laugh… How much is it if it changes part of the way I view the world?
