In this 99th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.
In this episode we discuss whether understanding science destroys our sense of awe. We ask how gazing out across the ocean, or into a vast and dark night sky, affect our sense of our own humanity, and what Roger Scruton had to say on the subject, in “Effing the Ineffable.” We follow this with discussions of necessity and sufficiency in scientific investigation; the fact that Tylenol is dangerous for pregnant women and children; why talking about pregnant people rather than women is disrespectful and suggestive of an anti-scientific worldview; Molnupiravir and its effects; and parenting in the modern era. Finally, we discuss the success and fate of our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, which is a best-seller despite being widely unavailable.
