Science is Evil! Religion is Stupid!

Can science people and faith people productively talk to each other?

You've no doubt noticed that public conversation in our country has more and more retreated into two self-reinforcing silos that had formally been on the margins: religious people who feel threatened by secular, scientific-worldview people and vice versa. Geoff Mitelman, a rabbi, is convening groups of high-level science and faith people from across the country to combat this. Tom has just finished participating in one of Geoff's groups called Sinai and Synapses. He and Dave talk with Geoff about what he's been learning.
