Paley's Watch (Guest)

Paley's Watch

Special guest of the Big Bang and Creationism Podcast and colleague of mine, Robert Lippens joins returning co-host Andrew and I on a discussion about Intelligent Design. William Paley engineered his thought experiment about the watch and the watchmaker close to the turn of the 19th century. Since then, Intelligent Design has gotten lots more public media attention. The three of us roundtable it out on various claims by Intelligent Design proponents.

No skypecast for this week, sorry. We had millions of troubles and skypecasting was one of them. I realize there was a crowd trying to get in and get it to work, but they're being fixed right now, servers are down, etc. Perhaps next time!

Newton's Bucket

Newton's Bucket

What can a rotating glob of water tell us about the universe's expanse? In this experiment you can perform at home, you can follow the history of the 400 year-old theory on Newton's explanation on why he thought the universe was infinite.
