For once, I’m going to shut up and let someone else do the speaking. Eric Weinstein is a key member of the tongue-in-cheek collective, the Intellectual Dark Web, which also includes Jordan Peterson and Joe Rogan.
The IDW is a bunch of people who are very interested in asking questions and finding out the truth. They don’t all agree with each other, but they do all place a high value on thinking clearly and speaking well.
In this episode (Ep. 5) of Eric’s podcast The Portal, he has a fascinating discussion with Rabbi Wolpe. It’s about how to find the best elements of atheism and religion and get them to work together, rather than be at each other’s throats.
This is very much in line with my quest to unify Science, Spirituality and Religion.
Eric and Rabbi Wolpe discuss a great many subjects in an intelligent and articulate way. The podcast is about an hour long, perfect for listening to if you’re going for a long walk or on your commute to work.
