Perry Marshall is back for round two of our conversation! With a decade of research, he brought us fresh (and common sense based!) perspective to the 150-year old evolution debate. He is the author of Evolution 2.0: Breaking the Deadlock between DARWIN and DESIGN. In this podcast we dive deep into Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem and how it is applicable to our ability to question all things that would have been told is fact. We once again question the battle of evolution vs. creation and why the journey of our curiosity really is the purpose of our existence and the bliss that should come from the fact that we will never know it all.
