Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This week we look at a critical subject in science: the origin of life. It is challenging to assess competing theories about the origin of life because the landscape is laden with worldview baggage. As such, having a genuine discussion typically takes a back seat to personal attacks. For the dedicated amateur, thinking about this subject offers a wide array of insight into how to examine key ideas. The truth about this question has tremendous implications. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!
