In this episode of Causes Or Cures, Erin Stair talks with Dr. Marcelo Gleiser about atheism, agnosticism, belief in God and the intersection of science and the spiritual dimension. Does atheism go against the scientific method? What about radical atheism? What about theism? What are the limitations of science, if any, when it comes to explaining how we got here? These, and other questions, are addressed during the interview. ( The interview is only 30 minutes, however, so please don't hold your breath for the meaning of life.)
Dr. Gleiser is a theoretical physicist, author of several popular science books and over a hundred papers in peer-reviewed journals, professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth College, and most recently, recipient of the prestigious Templeton Prize.
