#7 - When Man Plays at Being God (Ethics, basically...)
Apr 18, 2020
Jack Regan & Lizzie Wakeling

Following on from the last episode on Faith & Science, we take a look at some of science's darker accomplishments and how we decide which tools to use, which to use sparingly, and which to keep in the drawer. It's a good one. I mean, I'm biased, but still...

We look at things like 'double effect', abortion, nukes, warfare, drones, AI, and a few other bits. We also have our usual random banter that holds the whole thing together like UHU!

Here is the book Jack was talking about - https://www.amazon.com/Engaging-New-Generation-Reaching-Catholic/dp/1592767222/ (it's really cheap now!)

And here is the silly 'Fast Show' sketch (or one of them) with the two evangelising policemen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OktRFK-HeuU
