Podcast Ep. 115: Dr. Jerry Coyne, Author of Faith vs. Fact

At the recent American Humanist Association conference in Chicago, we spoke with Dr. Jerry Coyne, author, most recently, of Faith Versus Fact: Why Science and Religion Are Incompatible.

Dr. Coyne is a now-retired Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago. He has written over 115 refereed scientific papers; 130 additional articles, book reviews, and columns; and a scholarly book about his field (Speciation, co-authored with H. Allen Orr).

He may be most familiar to listeners for his book Why Evolution is True (which spawned his blog of the same name).

We spoke with Dr. Coyne about why science and religion are incompatible, the problems with the “Regressive Left” on college campuses, and what he discusses with his atheist/scientist friends.
