    Jeffrey J. Kripal UAP, Theology, Science, Religious Tribalism and Humanity's Place in the Cosmos | RC 58

    The division between humanities and sciences in the study of UFOs and the exploration of the possibility of intelligent life elsewhere in the cosmos has become a common practice. But why? Why can't either of these fields find common ground in an area of study that no one has a definite answer to?
    Jeffrey J. Kripal, a professor who holds the J. Newton Rayzor Chair in Philosophy and Religious Thought at Rice University, joins me in a discussion on various intersections of UAP, Theology and science. Though out of discussion we stubble into our human inherent religious tribalism. Is this hindering our progression of understanding our place in the cosmos in light of potential life elsewhere? And why in Abrahamic regions we view ETs "as us and them, and God is on our side." Meanwhile taking a deeper look at why some experiencers turn to myths and symbols of Christian demonology for answers.

    UFO Historian David Marler Examines UAPs: Echoes of History Repeating Itself? | RC57

    UFO Historian David Marler Examines UAPs: Echoes of History Repeating Itself? | RC57

    The mystery of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) has captivated UFO historians for over 70 years. Do recent UAP developments within the government and the media mirror past events, suggesting a repetition of history? Have we failed to learn from our past mistakes? David Marler, an author, UFO historian, and the Founder of the National UFO Historical Records Center, analyzes how current UAP developments compare to historical events and examines materials recently obtained by The Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) in his collection.

    Biological, ethical, and social considerations of Cloning and CRISPR | RC 55

    Today, we're diving into the depths of cloning, not just as a scientific marvel, but as a gateway to broader ethical questions brought forth by advancements like cloning, CRISPR and other genetic engineering technologies. As we navigate this complex topic, we'll ponder the implications of manipulating human and possibly animal tissues. Are we on the brink of redefining what it means to be human? Should we limit our focus to human cloning, or should we expand our scope to encompass all aspects of genetic modification and enhancement?
    Join Paul Root Wolpe Ph.D., Director of the Center for Ethics at Emory University and I as we embark on a journey through the realms of science, ethics, and the very essence of life itself. Join us as we get rebelliously curious.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fantastic podcast. Chrissy is a joy to listen to!

Cool topics, rough host

I listened to three episodes and had to stop. While I like the host’s voice quality and personality, they simply don’t speak well. Their phrasing is often awkward, using the wrong adverbs, confusing phrasing or just grammatically tortured in general. I give leeway on these things but she just goes way beyond what I’m willing to endure. They also say factually wrong things — like she recently described the Manhattan Project as the “late 40s, early 50s,” a full decade off!! Seriously? I’m sorry, but if you speak awkwardly and don’t even know when WWII happened, I can’t listen.
