This discussion was a pathetically uncritical review of the ontological argument, prefaced with an equally pathetically flippant criticism of "some" or "most" atheists. Another garbage episode.

@24:14: Ugh. The host seems to think that the problem with conflating correlation and causation is that we're often wrong about the correlation. No. That's not the issue. How did this guy come to host a podcast on philosophy? He certainly has a very weak grasp of logic.

The host thought that was a good counter-argument to Epicurus? What a bunch of garbage.

@33:38: "Lied"? No. The past tense of lie is lay.

@38:46: "The foot needs to realize that's what's in the best interest of the body is really in the best interest of the foot." This is a terrible example. It is not only wrong (e.g., amputation), but also a misrepresentation of the philosophy in question, which needn't entail an assessment of best interests.

@8:59: Someone hosting a philosophy podcast should know better than to misuse the phrase "beg the question" when they mean "raise the question." To "beg the question" is to commit a logical fallacy in which one assumes the conclusion.

Glad there was a disclaimer. This was painfully bad. Skipping far ahead, hoping to hear the improved version.

Firstly thank you so much for creating this show it is truly invaluable. If I may note one thing please, I wondered how come the earlier episodes stayed with me better than the later ones. So I went back to those first episodes and listened to them again and realised that it is to do with the speed with which you speak. In past episodes you were speaking slower, more relaxed and it was a very nice pace to keep up with, whereas with time and more confidence you sound faster and faster and its difficult to digest the sentences, please slow down.. Please.. Thank you I am very grateful for the show

(Re)listening to this in 2020 when the iPhone12 is about to be released and the last 5 minutes of this episode are more relevant than ever.

Jumping the gun as I'm only 5min in, but I get so tired of people blaming science for so many of our ills. Science isn't the problem, the application of it is. The current paradigm is a reductionist one and reductionism isn't always the appropriate lense to use. Science can and should also take a holistic view of the world. Science is the best tool we have for keeping our biases and faulty intuitions in check. Applied properly, it dispassionately gets us closer to truth and thereby enables us to make compassionate choices with a reduced risk of unforseen adverse outcomes. Science is only a means to an 'is', but it is up to us to understand what is so we can best determine what 'ought'.
