“The science-religion debate is unwinnable, and it has led us astray.” Those are the words of Krista Tippett, from her new book Einstein’s God. Tippett is the creator and host of Speaking of Faith, the public radio show about belief, meaning, ethics, and ideas from American Public Media. She writes, “Both science and religion are set to animate the twenty-first century with new vigor. This will happen whether their practitioners are in dialogue or not.”
Tippett joins us today to talk about her book, her show, and some of her favorite conversations that bring scientific and religious questions into concert with each other.
What did Einstein mean when he said God does not play dice with the universe? If we’re all ruled by the laws of physics, is there such a thing as free will? Did Darwin believe in God?
