Jay on DNA, Physics and Metaphysics

This is a section of a 4 hour interview that I thought worked well as a stand alone topic – the relationship of DNA, physics, metaphysics and Roger Penrose. This section of the interview with the Afternoon Commute refutes materialism, scientism and reductionism, as well as demonstrating the necessity of metaphysics.  Watch or download the full 4 hours here.

  1. Energy. The missing dynamism in western theology. Essence and energy, a dogmatic eternal truth to connect with the transcendent One. Even atomic structures verify the nature of this union. It breaks my heart pastorally this truth is obscured, and that the original intent of spiritual asceticism, the acquisition of this energy, is lost.

    Still a huge fan Jay…You’ve been blessed with a powerful mind and I feel like you are using it the way God intended. I can’t wait for you book and I still think you should start linking to your reference materials (including movies) using amazon affiliate links. It’s an easy thing to do and I want to see this site with more funding. I think a Patreon account is a good idea as well. You’re doing good stuff dude and anyone who can do Nic Cage as well as you do deserves to be funded haha. The only thing I’d like to see you address mandatory public education and college a little more directly. You do it in a roundabout way, but I want to see you approach the subject head on ala John Taylor Gatto.

    Keep up the fantastic work.

  3. This is what I hope to see more of. Fantastic segment from that lengthy interview. Should be required listening.

    “If minds are wholly dependent on brains, and brains on biochemistry, and biochemistry (in the long run) on the meaningless flux of the atoms, I cannot understand how the thought of those minds should have any more significance than the sound of the wind in the trees.”
    – C.S. Lewis

  5. Several listens on this one—very nutritious. If/when it crosses your mind I (and perhaps others lacking the theological background but following up to this point) would appreciate a bit on the personal as opposed to generalized god. Great work as always, many thanks.
