Our latest podcast guest is Phil Torres, author of The End: What Science and Religion Tell Us About the Apocalypse.
Phil is a philosopher and author who writes extensively about the intersection of religion and technology. He’s also a regular contributor at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies.
I spoke with him about why super-intelligence could come back to haunt us, how religious thinking mixed with weapons could bring us closer to doom, and whether we can reason with those who want to get closer to the afterlife.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the podcast. If you have any suggestions for people we should chat with, please leave them in the comments, too.
