"Critical thinking it insisting on evidence i would love to find ways in which an insistence on only believing that for which there is evidence could be spread virus. Then it's not it's not. It's not like the catchy tune. It's it's more difficult than that but I i would like to find ways in which that could be is spread in the nicest possible way in spread. Because it's a good name and there is no reason i mean should be should be good. I'm with you on that. Will your work takes leaps and bounds towards that. They may be more complex than your average mean but they certainly are just full of amazing information. Where can people follow you. Where can they get the latest book. All your other books. Well books furniture life you've mentioned and that is published in america. I think any day now You must have been. Do you have a copy. Don't you got a pdf copy. So not you don't have physical look look itself and i don't know unfortunately okay i'm sorry about that you should have. They should have sent you on I believe it's coming. I believe it's published in america on the festival september. She's two days time. Yes by the time this comes out. It'll be out. Yes good My next book is called flights of fancy. And that's coming out in britain on the first of november. Whoa but that is a for young people about flying about ways of defying gravity In animals insects bats territories and birds and in humans human technology. So it's all about the different ways in which animals including us get off. The ground in defiance of gravity is pretty extraordinary. That you've written two books that close to each other that els Of course is an anthology of post writings which which makes it easier And was put together by the way with jillian summer scales wonderful editor and He's woven it into different. Sections face base accessory. I like to think But it is Post writings passbook reviews. Forwards to brooks afterwards to set kinds of single saying in interviews between me. And there's other people like steven pinker neil degrasse tyson. Christopher hitchens matt ridley lawrence krauss. So that's an analogy flies. Two flights of fancy is is written with the illustrate. Yon then sova. Who's a very talented artist. And it's very heavily illustrated book for the benefit of of young people teenagers. The young young adult market eleven richard. Thank you so much for taking the time to be here and for all of your incredible works. They really are just inspiring in their breadth. It is Really the mark of extraordinary. Mind the number of things you've pursued and put down on paper so thank you so much for that guys. Speaking of things that will expand your mind.

"The track is about to kill people and there's a very fat man sitting on bridge above the track. And you push him off. That's the only way you can stop this. Trolley from killing those those people and almost every body shies away saying yes they would push the fatman off of the bridge. Is it's different from somehow. It's different from the earlier. Dilemma of Putting the lebron killing one rather than five because by pushing the fatman off you're actually using him as the obstacle but now you've pointed out with autonomously driving 'cause this is no longer. An academic dilemma for moral. Philosophers isn't actually an engineering dilemma. You have to decide how to program. You'll autonomous car. When when faced with the decision shall i swerve to avoid the old lady on the on the road crossing. If by doing so. I kill the child of vice if i vice versa. What one of the people is beethoven. Well not having some. Modern debate have And these the the stuff. The stock in trade of moral philosophy which is suddenly come to practical fruition in the design the programming off of self driving cars. Yes and then. We're also going to see similar things as a doctor. In china i believe that cloned Two girls where. I might be complaining to things. There was definitely A doctor again. I believe it was in. China that edited the genes of two twins If i remember the story correctly he was trying to give them An increased resilience against hiv. But i guess there's also a knock on that it may also increase their intelligence and so then it becomes a question like should you be able to edit that. I mean it would be great for if you step back in two thousand year view if we could make humans exponentially more intelligent That to me seems like a good thing but there will inevitably be just massive turmoil in the short term and so it becomes a question of do we. I mean that point. We certainly are playing godlike. But what if it's a gene like a single gene mutation that gives him a debilitating and painful disease. Gay everybody's gonna agree that you go in and fix that so out man gets really interesting us. I think as you say most people would accept the visit. If there's a deleterious gene you you say you were using Idea of in vitro fertilization. Where you you have in your pet for dish you have Say ten.

"Wo so when we get into. Christopher cast nine for anybody that doesn't know what that is. It's basically using a virus. Von not mistaken getting it to go in and actually edit out pieces of dna and either then just glue them back together or replace it with itself. I can't remember But it's going in and changing our genes is. Is it doing that. Is it turning on old. Things is it or can. We insert whatever code we want. Yes i mean. I think the the way the future is it will be in principle possible to The kinds of insurgence of that sort and It probably not. It's being done in. Animals plants inserting an antifreeze jeans From optic fishes in vegetables they didn't perish because it. It's it's a remarkable fact that that the molecular genetics revolution has brought about brought into consciousness. That dina's just dna dna same. The whole of the living kingdoms over and so in principle you can pick up. A gene is just like a a subroutine computing square roots. As i'm thinking you just just borrow it. I couldn't couldn't borrow a square root subroutine stick ticket in any program. You like middle do its job. and genes are in principle like that and can be transplanted and they will do whatever it supposed to do. In in another creature. The that is insane. I did you say within reason mill. Yes i am. I mean it. They find themselves. In a foreigner. Genetic environment in the incident may not do what you hope they'll do but but now. I don't know that this is true but i remember hearing that people were experimenting with things like cats that glow in the dark because there are it. Have they actually done that. Yes i forget whether gene comes from. Maybe a jellyfish something like that. That's what i think you. Yes that's insane so it's legal or people are doing that just In secret loudness neagle in humans. As to whether it's illegal in cats. I guess that might depend on which country or in while i mean that this really becomes this sort of crazy wild west scenario I haven't forgot about the hard problem of consciousness but this does remind me so. I know it won't point you. Were writing science fiction book. Which i hear you of shelved but the core thesis is so interesting that i do want to put myself in the cacophony of voices asking you to finish it But if you don't mind walking people through sort of what. The core idea was behind the book because it feels sort of tied to this. Yes i am. The only person it's sort of doing this might. My idea was to have a a scientist at my heroine. Who wanted to revive a prehistoric species of of human Originally he wants to revive australopithecus lucy. But she'd disperse waited to switch to homo erectus.

"Principle we understanding the happened once. Dna was in place and up and running. And then it's a straight run through to all the different the panoply of of different kinds of animals and plants to be see all the different ways predators and prey and preece growing and an and humans to But the the very first step before you got dna before you got. The origin of genetics is a barrier It's an it's not understood yet. It's not a profound thing like the hard problem of consciousness but nevertheless something which i would like to know the answer to it. It lies in the realm of chemistry. Which is not my field. But i'm not going to understand that detail but it'd be nice to have that that problem solved. Who and now. I am not surprised as your answers. I actually should have been able to predict that. So those are the two things that i would say. Really come to the core of what i think you will say is the sort of central purpose of your life which would be that. So many people default to was a creator to explain those to vary things And that's got to be the place where i'm sure people come to when debating with you around those two like that. Hey isn't it ironic. That the two things that science don't yet have an answer for are the two things you don't need an answer for when you have a creator If you had to guess. And i get that it's chemistry. Do you think that one day we will find. Oh when Certain molecules are in at the center of a volcano and they are struck by lightning than we get. It's gonna be something like that or like those hot plumes in the core of the ocean. Okay so we have a really your prediction as be very straightforward set of circumstances that that need to occur in sort of unusual places and that will be that first spark of life. Yes with reservation. i mean what. What one reservation is that It is possible. I think it's highly unlikely but it is possible that we all unique. It's possible that this this planet is unique and there's only ever been one origin of life is only one one life form anywhere in the universe. That's us if there is only one life it has to be here because because obviously we're here talking about it So we cannot rule out that possibility. Now if that's true. I didn't think it but if it were true then it would follow that. The origin of life is a ridiculously improbable event. Freakishly stupendous late staggeringly improbable event. Which would mean that. Although the has to be an explanation it must. Of course it did happen here. It might never Yield to any kind of research strategy because if only happened once the universe then we are not looking for any kind of plausible explanation looking for a highly implausible explanation. If there was a plausible explanation then it would have happened all over the universe which it probably has at least billions of times note by the way what a small number of billionaires when we're talking about the universe has as a whole that could be billions of independently arisen lifeforms dotted around the universe but soon widely scattered since university so huge so widely scattered that none of them ever meets ever encounters any of the others so as far as they're concerned they might as well be the only ones. I don't think that's the case. I think that life is probably. I think the us is crawling with life. Probably in which case the origin of life on this planet is not a highly implausible. Event is not a very rare event and is is an event which students have chemistry. Should eventually solve these. Come up with a plausible explanation. They might not be able to prove it's the right one but it. It might be such an elegant explanation that it pretty much has got to be right. yes. I think that's muslim. These unlikely it will ever be able to. This is definitely the way it happened. Because we don't be witness it was it happened on But but i think that's a different order of difficulty. It's much either. That's a much easier problem than the hard problem of consciousness before we move onto the hard problem of consciousness so high to move onto the harper. I definitely have some questions. I want to ask you around some of the prevailing theories even if you just say ridiculous but Before we do that so in the book you talk about I didn't realize he used to code Like literally code for computers and so you have deep insights into just how much like co dna really is Gives a quick explanation. Because until i heard you talk about it. I knew that you could like write. A book in dna try still find utterly startling but what is code and why is dna just like it. Well in computers as you know it. So binary and indiana. It's paternity of otherwise it's people the same okay so really fastest. Define not so binary for computers. Don't know zeros and ones that's it. Everything was and so in. In some computers it might be plus full of oats and zero votes or might be minus four and zero. Could be any. It doesn't matter what it is as long as it's two different states And those states represented mathematically zeros and ones and then you have a built upon that You have a machine codes where various combinations it might be a bite stuck the eight eight. Bits of the eight eight zero ones would bite represent one kind of of Coded instruction to the computer like at all will or move move. This numbers two did to this place. and at machine code level. What you're doing is i. Forgive me if you know of this adult please speak to the audience. Nothing else When you're writing machine code you're you're you're you're writing pretty close to the bottom level to the to the level where where where you've got a bites of say eight eight bits of information. Bits of information something like that on the and the The binary digits either represented instructions or they represent numbers and Instructions operate apart upon numbers. Say or you're.

"Care and be legendary. This is to me where the stuff starts to get really fascinating You know i. Obviously i know right. Now it's very taboo to talk about the differences between sexes. But that to me is crazy making because it's so disconnected from what actual life experiences like. And i mentioned this to you the first time that we met that five years ago. If you had asked me. I probably would have described humans as being more or less a blank slate And then the more that i get in there and really look at what's going on. I realized that were not that there. Are you know. let's call it fifty percent that's hard wired fifty percent that's malleable and then there are differences between the sexes. And it's like the more. I look at the differences. Between the sexes the easier it becomes to relate to my wife to understand to like get how she approaches world. And it's it's absolutely enlightening and i don't think that one is better than the other. I just find it utterly fascinating from an evolutionary standpoint. How we've got this race of different needs. And i'll be curious to get your take on this so it from what i've read and what seems logical to me. The real big thing comes down to for a woman. It is just obscenely resource-intensive to have a child from nine months of having to carry that child to then having to take care of it after it's born this year's long period where it has to be cared for just constantly whereas for the guy it's very low right so there's low investment it's basically whatever the biological cost of the semen is and that's it and so you would expect from an evolutionary standpoint. You would get into this sort of fascinating. co evolution to be sure but that they would go in opposite directions that women are going to be tuned to what i've heard referred to as a sort of detective mode like you said of being able to see is sky going to be loyal..

"Ways mix the female might gauge the Color of the blood I i'm not sure how plausible that is but it's the glass. The kind of thing that hamilton is talking about the if the male is is advertising health so the female what he does is to bring to the surface those characteristics which would enable a vet the veterinarian to diagnose health temperature low pressure Perhaps some breathing Cleanly without without wheezing and anything that that makes that makes health in the conventional sense him. The in the sense that that that doctor would understand as as being as being held is. Is that new temperance talking about. And what about where some of these things and they may not indicate ill health but they certainly become risky from a fitness perspective whether that's The antlers of a balconies putting so much of his micronutrients into that to build that out that. If he doesn't shed them he's going to die because he's not gonna make it through the winter with All of his vitamins being stored in his antlers or the peacock that has such massive plumage. Bef- are easier to catch and eat by predator so is is that part of that debate is is that there or is something else entirely. No it is. It is The the sort of underlying theory could tribute to the israelis all adjusts. The harvey are much zahabi his so called handicap principle. Which was unfashionable. When he first proposed it and unafraid. I rub it in the selfish gene. And then i had to climb down in the second edition sophis- gene because my colleague graefin produced a workable mathematical model chosen as it works the handicap principle Which is a more general case. What i've just been talking about in the hamilton say healthy theory states that a costly display like huge antlers or a huge tail in the case of a of of a peacock Only eight really fit. Male could afford to produce this great big taylor or these great big antlers so it is an advertisement that says i'm capable of paying the genuine cost of this display. And if i were an unfit weak health unhealthy male. I would not be capable of it. My antlers would be small so it goes wiz female tendency choose males who are displaying. A costly Well display such as such as an antlers The the graph model shows that this will work conduct some circumstances that even stable shape can work at the same time as males. Let's call the mail to could l. away but usually would be males the same time as males who have a range of possible displays that they could put out and among those are costly ones so as a strategy might be produce a very costly display and females same time off receivers of the signal and more generally the same time selected to choose either cost-free displays something like padded shoulders which any fool can do versus genuine muscular shoulders which only a genuinely Strong male could afford to do says something like antlers are unfavorable signal. They're heavy they. They endanger the stag more likely to get tangled up in the bushes all talk or caught by a by a predator so The the strategy the male the male strategy make your displays costly as possible is stable at the same time as the female strategy insist on only mating with males who make costly displays. That's what we call evolutionary stable and so that evolves that's that's why according to the zahava theory and the hamilton there's just a branch of the orbit that's why according to the hobby hamilton graefin theory We see costly displays. And the thing about peacock's tails is above all they are costly they they probably cost the male his life because he is more likely to be eaten by predator if he has a very long heavy tailed makes it difficult to take often. Exempt that Now how does this manifest in humans. What are the. There's obviously the cliches of Women flaunt their physical beauty. Men flaunt their wealth. Is there truth to that. Is it just a stereotype. Like what are we doing well. I was rather about what what what we had. Everybody wants to wants to go in that direction. I'm curious why are you hesitant. A bit because it's politically sensitive. I mean they're. They're all sorts of political strands which it which would you get. You get dumped on if you if you stop talking about humans in discount away Well these havi zahava himself love talking about humans and so things like buying costly engagement ring taking the woman out to an expensive dinner That kind of thing is fits in with with his His his wave speaking In the case of humans we have the apparent reversal because it looks as though miss female to wear lipstick and and do do the kind of peacocking conde displays so that kind of works the other way round If works toll in females not an all cultures actually even their their cultures where males do. The displaying male do the peacock and have great be headdresses and dances where they'd see her jock river rivalry each other who can jump the highest in a in a ritual. Dance that kind of thing but in our culture looks as their it's females doing the doing the peacock display. It's really interesting. And i if this goes To a point where you're no longer comfortable talking about it. Just let me know. But so needless to say i find humans fascinating And we are if not the only one of the only animals that were the female obvious. Gates her When she's able to conceive her Her fertility cycle. And so one idea that i heard was that the version of wearing makeup is the show sexual signs of like Sexual receptiveness so the blushing of the cheeks. Things that uh mimic sort of being aroused. And whether that's true or not. I don't know but that certainly is a an interesting way to look at it if okay i hide it and so i need to have ways where i can accuse somebody in Is one particular way. do you have a take. On why female Reproductive cycle is hidden win an all other animals. At least that i know of. There's like a grand to let you know it's it's a pretty tough topic Female concealed ovulation. This assist amount of evidence which is probably controversial as to whether it really is completely concealed One of the studies that's been done It by evolutionary psychologists is the study of.

"I'm so an extravagant. Peacock's tail can be seen as a badge of health for example because w hamilton suggestive. This a A female is looking for health. A healthy mate so in a way not selection is favouring females that become good diagnostic doctors that become able to diagnose whether a male is healthy or not and using the brightness of a male's plumage for example is one way in which females could diagnose with the male is healthy and same time This is the really difficult part of the hamilton theory males us selected to become easier to diagnose. It's as though not selection favors males that come with the equivalent of thermometer sticking out of them to enable the female to diagnose them And the theory works even if the male is unhealthy. He's still natural selection. Still favors the the evolution of thermometers blood pressure meters in in mail dot literally across but something equivalent to that And so for the neo. Walachians sexual selection favors fee knows it become good diagnostic doctors and meals that become advertisers of health and the more extravagant started the the more healthy. The male is the mohican afford. Costly advertisements like extravagantly beautiful long tails. Which only a really healthy male could afford to display. So that's the kind of new lesean approach to sexual selection. Both of them produce aesthetically pleasing results to us result aesthetically pleasing to us and at the same time resulted essentially pleasing to the opposite sex. You use the word healthy in there. And i want to get a clear definition of what you mean by that so When i think about humans. And what certainly as a guy. You're drawn to signs of fertility So that we could certainly round to health. are females necessarily looking for health or they looking for signs of fitness which maybe given the evolutionary context even more complicated word But is yet define health for me in that. Scenario in the context is talking about health. Means what what we as humans and doctors think of it has made me. It means freedom from bacteria from viruses If if for example. One of the points. Hamilton i think hamilton made is that Diarrhea be a badge of ill. Health and A long tail.

"All right guys. Take care and be legendary. Richard dawkins welcome back to the show. I am very excited to spend some time with you again. So thank you for joining me. Well thank you very much. Well you are for anybody. That doesn't know you're a legendary evolutionary biologist. As well as a pro olympic author of a new book out called books do furnish the life and really taking a pretty beautiful aesthetic. Look back at science writing And many of the the really sort of famous conversations that you've had over the years and the scope of topics that you cover a really breathtaking. The one theme that really stands out to me is just how evolution works. How science works. How we've gotten here and as you build trying to get behind secularism and bring bringing science into a place of prominence almost as an art form and. i don't even know that you would use the word almost. I think you're pretty comfortable with that idea. and what. I find fascinating. And i think we'll be great jumping off point for us. Is that the the very thing that you're fighting against this tendency towards Religiosity for lack of a better word is is itself a function of evolution and the tools that you use to try to sway the cultural conversation and move people into something that you think would be more beautiful more useful. Noshir what word you will slot in. There is also a tool of evolution. And so i want to start with this idea of what. what are what. I'll call the physics of human behavior. What is that base level of how we are as a species. How does our mind work. Why do we tend towards the things that we tend towards. and how can we move. People nudge them in a direction. That might be a more useful to carry his matter. Isn't it that Our brains were fashioned by natural selection to survive and reproduce in on the african savannah and For that you didn't need well. You suddenly didn't need quantum theory and realtively and Anything other than fundamental physics of the way things move on you tops them and drop them and throw them on things. That course we had to have. But it's clear that we moved hugely beyond what was in a utilitarian sense useful for Evolving ancestors and i suppose the same goes for art as well It goes for the aesthetic sense. I suppose we have to as evolutionist make a case to understand why it is that we are capable of doing saez capable of doing poetry. Doing art of responding aesthetically. Being moved by things these are mysteries beyond to lucien. But i think they are a woolworth. Talking about thinking about your. I agree with that very much. And when i think about what are the things that make life as joyful as beautiful as exhilarating as it is for me that leads me to face back inward and to look at the nature of my mind and one thing that i've i've been talking a lot about socially recently is not to think about things but to think about the nature of things and how they are at at a base level and if i were to prognosticate about what involves a different way what i hope to be remembered for is getting people to really understand that they're having a biological experience and by that i mean that your brain works in a specific way. There are just certain things that it does. And i want someone to write a book about what is our sort of true and fundamental nature. And so i'm gonna throw out some things that i think are true and i'd love to hear either your pushback if you think i'm crazy or if you agree that they are true then how they came to be true and what the repercussions are so one of the most fundamental things. I think to the human mind and for people to understand about themselves is that there. We are constantly deciding what to think about the thing that's happening to us. So there's a region of the brain the deep limbic system. That isn't necessarily there to tell you what's happening. Is there to tell you how to feel about what's happening and to me. That is when i think about the the journey that you're on the battle that you're in the midst of it's it's anchored in that moment that we feel things that we then they feel true so if somebody says something mean to me or that i perceive as being mean than i perceive that person as having attacked me for instance and it feels justified for me to have a a strong aggressive reaction back against them until i realized. Wait a second. I can insert myself into that moment. I don't have to believe that emotion because there is an area of my brain. That told me that that thing was bad that that statement was aggressive but in reality it may not have been meant that way it may merely be somebody pointing out a A falsehood and my thinking or something along those lines but for me. I was trapped in the emotional cycle. Until i understood that evolution has delivered this region of my brain that is designed to paint with emotion. My experience one. Do you think that that's a fundamental thing. And if so how did we get here. So you're talking about your kind of tussle between the cotillion brain Which feels which responds emotionally. The way you say could be an aggressive response for example and the high mammalian brain which comes steps in and says no manage. Let's think about this Yes that seems plausible. To meet has a his. I think with daniel congressmens lost in slow thinking And there is a certain tussle. And i think perhaps we have to.

"What extent natural selection is a force. It's not kind of a myth. You know it's a descriptive term for things that happened in nature. Course we talk about hitch in richard's relationship with him and and What a great thinker was religious truths versus political versus Empirical or scientific truths and and then kind of wrap up talking about the grand questions. That is the mysterious mysteries or what extent we can ever understand. Truly whether there's a god or not whether there's free will determinism what's the nature of consciousness. What does nothing this mean. We drilled out on this one super interesting subject. Universe nothing nothing. What does that mean. Nothing no thing. But what is the thing. The idea of god. That's the thing so in truly nothing is there can't even be the concept of god. So what are we even talking about. nothing some anyway. I hope you enjoy this conversation with the great richard dawkins. Thanks for listening. Yes well. I mean hitches. Just a remarkable that he's able to speak in like whole paragraph long sentences that are just perfectly articulated as if as if he had written them down and You know so that. And then also the The interview you did with matt ridley and i you know about genetics and and How people still misunderstand evolution but before we get into all that i just wa- already introduced a book this is the uk version. I think the us version has a similar. But yeah but any case I think this is kind of a third culture book like our our mutual agent fran. John brockman introduced this idea that That books should not just be either scholarly or popular dumbed down versions but that in fact they should be just one version that anybody could read and that takes a lot of skill. And i always think of yourself as gene as a perfect role model also pinkers better angels of our nature and enlightenment now or or matt release books or a you know. A number of these Dan dan books. Those aren't the pop versions of the technical professional papers they wrote. Jared diamond's guns germs and steel. That's the only version there is and anybody could read it. I strongly agree. And i feel that scientists do more to try to write in a way that's accessible to other people. I think actually they would actually understand themselves better. Wh we scientists would actually understand ourselves better if we as if foal la audience. It's hard to do. You know it takes a lot of a practice in work and You know it's it's a learned skill. Almost like i think of it as like people that watch american idol of all the singers or or any of the kind of contests where most people are not good at this and they think oh i could do that and then you see most of the people on these shows. It's like they're awful. That's probably what i would be like. And rioting that it just takes. It just takes a lot of practice. I mean let me just give you a read some passages from the book to give your voice a break here. You open with the literature of science. I i just gave us the distinction. You make at the very beginning of the two types of literature yes.

"He's not the important thing it's the genes within him and the genes of the driving force for all of these things and even though on the surface it might appear that because someone is accessible and this can be because they're in a certain environment. Because i looked in way of soda these things it's always the genes underneath. And that's what you need to focus on. He's also very explicit that we need to be careful about certain things because humans love purpose. We love seeing things. We'd love understanding. What's the reason behind this. You know if. I found an ancient ruler of some sort in the ruins of a city. I would want to know. What's this fall. Why and trying to put purpose behind all these things when maybe it was some dude who just found a piece of metal and threw it out on the street. Maybe it wasn't a arolla so he goes are some examples of this in the book of how certain things might evolve and we want to see the puffs behind it. What is exactly is this for. What is this doing when it might be a byproduct of something else. Maybe it doesn't have a purpose. Maybe it actually harmful in a certain way but it's beneficial because it comes along with another thing so this is an example. I'm creating here but beautiful music. You might be tempted to say. Wow this amazing thing exist therefore the is made to hear this is were made to allow us to fully comprehend. Wow what is this thing. How exquisite is this. And he's very particular. No no there's no made because made implies that there is something behind it with a purpose a reason and he says no natural selection is neither cruel known. Beautiful natural selection simply is there's pup is behind these things these things happen and he's really trying to take away that idea of probably a god because he is very atheist sticking in his reasonings and talk about this a little bit more in that there's nor driving force behind these things. Well there is a force but there is no free will or a person or emotional sentiment behind that it simply just pushing forward onto my personal observations and takeaways and as i referenced just before it's told in the classic dokan style so it is ruthlessly logical bordering on dismissive. He's not one to suffer fools. He himself has strongly atheist and while he's not joking around not not taking people seriously. Not making fun of them is also pretty blunt in his views. He's not them. he's not trying to spear feelings if someone comes up to him he'll say you're wrong and this is why so he'll receive a letter from a bishop or someone like that saying the is just too complex there is no way evolution can explain this and must have come from an entity or some sort of creator and he'll say these are the reasons why bang bang bang bang. This is it. And he'll use that to explain why the i was created. Why bees do this funny dance. Which teams electrical until you can understand the reasoning behind it. Why flowers and orchids and these sorts of things will get pollinated by bees because they have the perfect shape and all of these sorts of things will wrap it up and just say nar the blunt classic dog in style..

"Today we're gonna talk with a content creator. I'm gonna kinda give you some behind the scenes of what goes on in creating content on multiple platforms but then we also have a little bit of a disagreement. And i want to dive into that too and again had those nuanced conversations that you've come to love as part of this podcast so without further ado let me go ahead and bring on the guest. Please join me in welcoming bun daddy to the podcast. It's look. I told you it was going to be cheesy applause. Remember i said that. i'm elliott. Yeah you're familiar. What i've been around. Yeah that's the podcast. That's you know for some reason. I've i space that for just a second and let me just so so let me. Just tell people how i found you. I i came across one of your videos on. Tiktok was life changing for me. it really was. It had a had a major impact on me and it was really empowering should say and then so i followed you on tiktok you have a huge following and it kept growing and kept growing up over six hundred thousand followers or something and at one point you went live and i joined your live and i heard you say oh david smalley just joined and i was like she knows who are you and how do you do and then we started. We started talking. And you're like is listen to the show. I devoured countless hours of the show and probably still scratch the surface because countless hours. Listen to one episode. that's you. I can count them usually about two or three but so how'd you remember how you found the podcast and was like a super long time ago. Yeah no it was. When i was. I had just had my deacon conversion experience from my christianity. And i was literally on whatever podcast app i was using. I searched different Buzzwords like atheism. And i there were a couple of different secular and search for dogma and yours came up as dogma debate back when it was dogma debate and i kind of like i thank my teeth into it because it was so it was ground level. It wasn't anything that i had to really have a lot of. You know like. I had understanding both sides of things but it was an unintimidated thing to approach as opposed to many other things that i had experiences right. That was that was kind of the goal. And that was the goal when i wrote my book to every atheist stuff. I found anything that was either atheist based or christian based or debate related. It was a lot of times. It was really intimidating. It was really. It was like richard dawkins level big words on top of big words on top of concepts on top of things. Like solipsism and methodological naturalism and part of me would just kind of glaze over and go. I don't i mean. I'm sure these aren't complicated subjects but it it didn't feel inviting and so i intentionally wrote my book in a way that would be inviting in and created my show to be the same way. So it's it's great to know that that that it did have that effect. Oh absolutely i mean it was definitely the first kind of it was the first big like involvement or investment. I had in anything in atheist community alongside a couple of other ones that i kind of pieced together and picked and pulled from different episodes of podcasts. But this was the one that i had playing over and over and over while i worked so cool brings a huge mall my face thank you for that. And it's it's kind of crazy because you know that had an impact on you. I'm honored i'm flattered him so glad that that happened and without even knowing that i found you and you had an impact on me in my personal life and so the fact that we were able to connect and now i've become friends is just just a wonderful sort of closing the full circle within the universe. it's it's really a beautiful thing and i have. I finally found the original video. I found of yours now. A lot of people out there may be thinking. Yeah i scroll through tiktok. Sometimes it's just a bunch of teenagers dancing and it's stupid. Unfortunately that is the case for a portion of the app. But that's there's so much more on tiktok. There are so many Political movements and you know people just inspiring each other and thought experiments and magic tricks and skills to learn if you want you use the app for a while. It starts to learn your behaviors in learn what you like and if you do the right things and like the right things it will guide you to really really good content and and. I'm glad that i did that. So i want to play the video that i that i found of yours. That made me a fan. Okay this is. This is deep stuff. And it's just so it's so insightful. And i feel like it. It's it's so palatable in a way that it is generic yet specific enough that if this is happening in someone's life they can definitely Apply it in the right areas that that's what's so great about it so i'm gonna play the message right now. He co q. something. I learned in boating school ak therapy and books. We've all heard people say you teach people how to treat you. And basically what that means is you are responsible in your relationships for establishing and enforcing boundaries that other people have to follow in order to maintain access to you. Those are really key distinction here. And that's the difference between responsibility and if a meteor lands on my car and decimates it. I'm not faults. I didn't do anything. But i'm still responsible for getting myself. New car or mode of transportation because taking responsibility is not the same as accepting blame and the same goes for relationships you are responsible for setting and enforcing your own boundaries. But you are not at fault for someone's actions overstepping those boundaries. You teach people how to treat you by taking on the responsibility of revoking access to you when they don't respect your boundaries. You don't teach people how to treat you by accepting fall for things that other people do.

"Of darkness on judge a day because he's a lot of other people there as well and praise. God you know Jesus did die for him so in the midst of our righteous indignation where we hate the evil. We have to step aside. Okay wait a minute you know. Don't get ticked off this guy personally but pray that God would save him because that guy is in. I'm telling you Richard Dawkins because one of the little ones have stumbled. He says better that a millstone be hung around your neck a huge most you throw the depths of C. so he's an en- huge huge trouble. That's interesting because after he made these earlier tweets about genetics and so forth. It was. I thought it was kind of interesting. Because he There was some responses to him by other people in the secular world and renowned geneticist basically. He he gave a series of tweets. David Curtis of the University College of London who edits the Journal of Animals Genetics He basically took Darwin to school. And he stated that His view of human genetics is a of. Eugenics the idea of doing you. His evil It's racist And it wouldn't work you also states so now. Geneticist stated a series of tweets Dawkins. I work on human genetics. An honorary professor at the UCLA. Today Institute. I'm the Editor in Chief of a journal which used to be called annals of eugenics. Interestingly I just wanted to say that what we know from the latest research is that eugenic simply would not work. My claims are based on results of genetic epidemiological studies of hundreds of thousands of people. Such as you K- bio bank and sequencing studies. Secrecy Studies of many thousands of people. These results have emerged. Recently and many commentators may not fully appreciate them. He goes on to say. There are a number of different kinds of reasons. Why eugenics would not work is an interesting so I believe you know his purpose for throwing that tweet up there. Oatley was trying to you. Know give props to darwinistic evolution. So it's kind of funny you've got slapped other other geneticists you know. Not that he's had really But also when you when you when you bring that other quote chat with him talking about killing down child and we talked about how he says there's no real good or evil and why eating human being he goes. I would eat that particular human being basis by continue. Why not for moral reasons? I mean he's he's actually showing you his heart that he has no is total lawlessness So if he could offer all kinds of people different races or whatever in his secret life with you don't just hit buttons. There's nothing to stop. I mean why because there's no room rally the bottom at all he says there's no good or evil so that these kinds of people are walking around is horrific and influencing people in our universities in our colleges and so forth Makes you pretty much want to just throw up is interesting? Because he's talking about you know. Darwinism and eugenics and in that context that there's no real good or evil no remedial purpose in life. No transcendent meaning can't see why he wouldn't eat people. Maybe just because he's not interested in the flavor right now maybe that particular person or whatever we all. It's his Darwinism that allows him to basically do what Thou will that opens up to. That viewpoint is interest house thinking about that when I was looking at these things that it was dating with eugenics with cannibalism that he says. It's just pitiless indifference. There's no pity there's no mercy involved from Darwinistic a an atheist six standpoint because we're all just the result of you know Gases at exploded. You know so I mean you know one. Gas Can't get upset with another gas because you're just a gas exploded with no meaning your life so hopefully. If his world view is correct he would actually be right but his world view is wrong. But the Bible says the foundations are gone psalm. Eleven three if the foundations are gone. In what will the righteous do the righteous what are they gonNa do if the foundations of righteousness of ethics of morality art? And you're GONNA do well. We have to flee though they're gone for the world in the world jettison stem we as believers. God fears that love the Lord. Jesus Christ need to make sure that our houses are built on the rock of Jesus and he taught us that in fact. I did a whole message yesterday on a Wednesday night. Message on a The foundations and how we need to have godly foundation in that. If you don't have golly foundations there's no Roe You know there's no Romania life. There's no purpose no sense of right or wrong. There's no Understanding of male and female. There's no understanding of the FAW. There's no understand of the need for Jesus because if there's no genesis you know there's no in the beginning and God created us male and female and man falling then you have no need for Jesus so Satan loves to attack the foundations. And that's one of his greatest tactics attack the beginning and that's basically how he's used a lot of these militant atheist. I thought interesting. As it was looking at him you know fantasizing about cannibalism and trying to get his audience of atheist to think about how. There's no reason why not eat human beings though you know they're cloned anyway right is GONNA go. Well there's another guy like that who was an atheist who was eating human beans and he didn't because he said his name is Jeffrey Dahmer. Where the most noted the Torius serial killers? Who would basically hunt people down? He had a conscience because he was created image of God and he was conscious. He killed the animals. He called the dog for no reason at. I felt really bad about it because God gave a conscious bias. God's moral laws written our hearts. He actually felt really bad remorseful. He went to church. But guess what that didn't stick you know Because he started fantasize about killing people left church out how long he went and he got involved in. Darwinism which gave him an excuse to legitimize serial killing and began to capture young people Miners usually boys and sodomize them. And then cook them. And then eat them he even made a makeshift satanic altar that he drew that he actually never created but he drew it out but it's interesting listening to him in prison with his dad do an interview talking about how he'd given in to his urges because he lost sight of a sense of right and wrong because he was deceived by the Darwinism an atheist worldview. I always I always believe.

I know Tony and I were talking. Today we're excited because we will be recording. Not only will. Joe Have to speak three times but he will also be recording the good fight radio show and I'll be recording five eleven news while we are out there so hopefully we'll get a little bit of some involvement from the crowd so that would be blessed speaking of involvement from the crowd. There was something that happened on twitter recently and we were talking with. I know Joe was talking with a friend of ours They went to Israel with about some of the wicked things. That Richard Dawkins had to say. And it's been kind of all over the news Sometimes I think he's somewhat of a bombastic Arrogant human being and I think he says Militant atheism half. You guys have never heard of Richard Dawkins. He wrote the book. The God delusion and I'm GonNA put this out there. I don't mean to offend but whenever I'm debating with atheists or discussing Different Things with atheist. When I hear those certain quotes from that book that I've come in contact with through years of argumentation from when I was in atheist and now being a believer I always go well. I guess you haven't really read on this subject that much. Okay because in all honesty I don't see him as a formidable opponent when it comes to the philosophical argumentation in his field. He can do his thing over there. in zoology but when it comes to the philosophical realm and actually having ideas do you have to present in front of people that actually can answer them back. I think he is sophomoric. Best and really really poor at other places so When it comes to Richard Dawkins. He was really big. When I first came to the Lord he was like one of the most talked about guys in about two thousand eight. Two thousand nine Him Hitchens and Daniel Dan it and Sarah and you know the four horsemen of the atheist apocalypse but which never ended up happening And it won't after up HITCHENS HE'S GONNA. Yeah Hitchens did. Yeah Hitchens Daddy. Sadly he blasphemed you know You know for most of his life and then he ended up having His A sophist go out not to be able to blaspheme against the God that created him. It's really Help BREAKING FOR HIM. but It's really sad anyways so I better get to the topic at hand A recent tweet from Richard Dawkins said this. It's one thing to deplore eugenics on ideological political moral grounds. It's quite another to conclude that it wouldn't work in practice. Of course it would work. It works for cows. Horses pigs dogs and roses. Why on Earth wouldn't it work for humans facts ignore ideology? And I know we'll be talking about this and he's going to say that it wasn't promoting eugenics and that's fine. We'll get into that. But that actually would be somewhat par for the course concerning Richard Dawkins because Richard Dawkins and same thing. Tweeden out again in August of two thousand fourteen. Somebody tweeted to him. Asked him specifically? I honestly don't know what I would do if I were pregnant with a kid with down syndrome. A real ethical dilemma. And Richard Dawkins said this aboard it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world. If you have the choice like he has a morality you know just and just really quickly folks keep your mind what. Eugenic says you know the Germans practice it To when they killed six million Jews they wanted to create a pure Korean race Margaret Sanger. Who was influenced by Nazis You know wickedly influenced by a spoke to the KKK. And so forth. She is well founder. Planned parenthood was tooting eugenics even before the Holocaust Are Breaking and she actually said she was targeting black neighborhoods to kill off black children. You know so It's amazing we have a really really wicked situation here because when you look at what he's talking about in regard to you know off you know killing murdering a down syndrome child. He's playing God and of course that's view because he doesn't believe in the creator of the universe he believes that he's his own. God and I got. I came became aware of that tweet. That was written a few days ago. That Chad had just Quoted FROM SISTER NAMED LAUREN. Really Neat sister got spent a lot of time with her and her mother and her brother. They're from Australia over our trip to Alaska Israel last year. It was a great time and She's A. She's a good apologised in we talked about. Maybe perhaps write a book together on Nazism. And the occult. I'm sorry not not as many call relate to. Yeah I'm I'm doing something like that already. Secret societies but on evolution. And the occult and she sent me a a series of tweets that she was going to send you a Richard Dawkins and it's quite a quite long. Maybe Tony will post it Put on our website. If you can look at this show they'll be like a link to it or an article where you can read the whole thing because this like really great points. She makes but a few really quickly while they say one should always lead by example. So you first professor as he's talking about you know eugenics and so forth in there earlier tweet. He was talking about You know killing babies that were undesirable. But before you do yourself she writes. You might want to do some ernest research. Any of the you'll pagan origins about Darwinism and Nazism and really of scientism. Which is basically the religion of of worshipping knowledge but it's falsely so called right and really of scientists in general go on. I dare you in the next tweet. Starting with Charles Darwin's greatest ideological influence his grandfather. The devoted nature worshiping freemasons which. He was eras Darwin who filled his Esoteric A- poetry with evolutionary ideas that he ripped off from Hinduism's central Karmic tenant that man is on upward journey from slime to the divine over eons of time. Erasmus also coach similar out of the US evolutionary views from ancient Egyptian Greek and Babylonian Myth. A lot of mythology and esoteric traditions. Her next Tweet was then. Take a deep dive. Evolution's CO discoverer Alfred. Wallace Alfred Russell Wallace a lifeline cultist. Who Rarely commune with the dead. And Laura and I were comparison of our notes on the occult and And I was pretty impressed that she was familiar with Alfred Wallace's A cold background He actually was right there with Darwin when they presented the founders of this new theory of evolution which really as a she stately points out. There came old really. You know back to his grandfather does Rasmusen actually further back into the pagan religions. An Colt worldview. But it's interesting because Alfred. Wallace did not get the claim that Darwin did why because he was claiming these ideas were being communicated to the spirit world All kinds of different ideas that he had about life so but him with him in the. Darwin works changing some notes and Dr would realize well as the same thing I have basically and he was getting it from the spiritual world. Alright so the world presents though it scientifically based Darwin himself went to Santa's Now he says well actually I believe a word of it and I went upstairs and fell asleep while they were doing it. I wonder because if it came out that he was actually participating on I think Huxley went to one after that and then he said Oh it was all fraudulent while you guys gone says you know. Why does the Darwin dancing well? I don't get into toll thing too deep into it but I just want to point out. Some of the problems we have. This is a huge concern. Because when you destroy the foundations of creation the foundations of a creator God and then you destroy an objective morality. What's right and wrong fearing God knowing God obeying God that we're going to stand before God concept of eternal judgment so forth he just cast all that out it. Just it just bury your head in the sand and don't look at the clarion call From the Heavens. That there is a god and you ignore it then you can you know pretend anything goes and remember it does say Romans. One Paul says that those who reject God they suppressed the truth and unrighteousness because he makes his creation very clear to them and they literally he says suppress in the Greek. It's a present tense As an active verb where. They're holding down the truth. And Richard Dawkins one of the militant atheist other his whole life is dedicated to try to hold God down. He can't do it because the scriptures say in it saw nineteen that the heavens declare the glories of God and the the firmament shows his handiwork and data data's for speech tonight reveals knowledge goes on to say there's no place Whether speech their language is not heard voice. Gone out into all the earth and They're the worst of ended. The world think I'm quoting that right but got a pretty close there and it's interesting because when you look at that tax saying that is constantly revealed himself every day in every night all over the world universally that he exists as megaphone the creation all around we could not create even one speck of San. We can't create a blade of us are a blade of grass. Anything guys Only God could create this entire universe and give us is to see and brains to think about it and to contemplate what's going on even to one degree even adopted do science and acquire knowledge comes from God so it's all just so obvious but guess what doctrines admits ultimately. There's no real objective or transcendent basis for morality. That's crazy we think about it. 'cause those who don't believe anymore alley no easy consider them your sociopathic psychopathic and he states in his book. river out of Eden on page one thirty three a Darwinian view of life at bottom. He's talking about the bottom of his view the universe there's no design no purpose. No evil no good. So there's no criminals aren't even axe. There's no good. There's no evil. Nothing but pitiless pitiless indifference. Wow so it's interesting that he found a follow up that tweet. I noticed. I checked out what he was doing. A little bit. After that February sixteenth which is just a couple days ago from when the show's first being aired right now when we're recording say What came out. His mouth was absolutely just horrific. He actually has people. Trying to get people fantasize about eating other people you know eating babies eating based on a couple of his different tweets that have come out just recently one of the past and of course he wants to say why wouldn't do it. But what do you think about this? And it's interesting because it's February sixteenth. Tweet he came under fire for the EUGENICS tweet but just a couple of days later quite interesting he. He makes some interesting statements. He says February teeth humid state. Could of course be cultured? Would you eat it? I wouldn't but it's hard to say why now those. What he says is hard to see why he wouldn't eat another human being because he has no ethics. He has no morals. There's there's no good or evil there's no meaning there's no purpose in life so he says but it's hard to say why in other words if you want to eat something. Don't don't let your moral constraints you know what you're taboos get in the way It would be cultured from a single name of a person who who firmly waiting staw serve human placenta also clone of one person in this case the baby. I wouldn't eat that either. You know it's quite interesting that he's making these kinds of statements as interesting because dockings seems to have his fascination with cannibalism because two thousand eighteen. He tweeted this. He tweets this very strange tissue culture clean meat already in two thousand eighteen. I've long been looking forward to this. What if human meat is grown? Could we overcome our taboo against cannibalism? An interesting test. Case for consequentialist morality versus. Yuck reaction absolutism you absolutist you're just it's just based on a yuck factor within not based on any kind of intuition they're given through your conscience because God is written on your hearts so what's the consequences ultimately and guess what if the consequences of killing a baby is. You don't have to deal with the down a child. Oh more power to you if he encourages women to kill her baby. S is wicked man. I have a a precious niece. Who's WHO's down Megan. And she's one of the most precious people not kidding. I know in my life when I hear she lights up the room. You know she bless your heart every time you see her as she super sweeten I just I just I love all my nephews nieces. Grandchildren of course but man. She's she something else in that. He would advocate killing her and other babies like her when they're in the womb is wicked beyond belief and he's in huge trouble he better false face be forgotten repent because he is going to get the blackest.
