Lawrence Krauss is an internationally known physicist and public intellectual.

He is our sole guest for the entire hour in this week’s Think Tank.

This week we discuss:

The question of God?

Most people believe in some kind of god. Why? What is the relation between science and notions of God?

“Woke” culture in our universities 

Is this a good idea taken too far? How did this belief system gain traction and why? What are the consequences?

And, during our discussion, we even come up with some interesting parallels linking these two disparate topics.

We also discuss The Origins Project, an educational foundation which Dr. Krauss heads and which is having a major event in Phoenix on April 10 and 11. Tune in and you can find out how to win a couple of free tickets.

The Think Tank airs on KTAR 92.3 FM on Saturday 6-7 p.m. and Sunday 9-10 p.m.

Podcasts are available after broadcast. Older shows are archived at www.mikeoneil.org.
