“Life Matters” (Because it just does)

rte lm

Here is Sunday’s episode of “Life Matters” on RTÉ Radio 1, which features (among many luminaries) none other than yours truly. Entitled The God of Aliens, the programme addresses those famous bedfellows, science and religion. It’s all a very interesting package and I encourage you to give it a listen (don’t worry, it’s mostly other people).

My contributions relate to the evolutionary basis of religiosity, and its implications for our understanding and appreciation of morality. All of which seems far more profound as I type it than it probably really is. Go have a listen and see what you think yourself.

The “Life Matters” series is relatively new (it’s six weeks into its run) and is presented by Seán Duke and Colette Kinsella. The aim is to explore “the ethics of how we live today“, no less. I think it’s been a really great series so far — strong in narrative, diverse in perspective, and comprehensively researched — a terrific example of cerebral but accessible programming.

Previous episodes (and, in due course, future ones) can be streamed here.
