Ep. 72 Open Theism, Biology, and Risk

Dr. Ema Sani and I have been working on a paper on open theism and molecular biology. In today’s episode, we explore some questions about the relationship between different scientific disciplines and theology. When we take a closer look at the biological world we see a vast array of risk-management systems that anticipate genetic errors, and seek to correct them. Ema explains these biological phenomena for us, and then we discuss how this can help the open theist develop her understanding of the God-world relationship. Is the God of open theism too risky? Stick around and find out. Credits: Host: R.T. Mullins (PhD, University of St Andrews) is a research fellow at the University of Helsinki's Collegium for Advanced Studies.
