Do you think you know what “evolution” is all about? You might think a bit differently after you hear this conversation with Perry Marshall. In the last 15 to 20 years so much has changed in the science of evolutionary biology. What you learned in school is likely not what current evolutionary theory is teaching.

In this great chat Jeremy asks Perry to unpack his reasons for writing this book (he’s an Adwords specialist, after all), why he thinks it’s a truly significant issue to be thinking about, and the impact his book and accompanying lectures are having on the people he meets. What he’s come to believe is that evolutionists don’t think highly enough of nature and creationists don’t think highly enough of God, and that the new viewpoints on evolution show that to be true.

Perry’s research started with his own questions about the origin of life, viewed from his background as a systems guy. He simply couldn’t believe that the evolutionary theory he’d heard all his life could possible be true. Random events leading to the complicated forms of life we see on our planet? He wasn’t buying it. This conversation unpacks his journey from evolution skeptic to hard core “new evolutionist” and what he says the data is telling us about God, life, and the way we got here.

If you’re an atheist, you might hate this interview. If you’re a creationist, you just might too. But anyone who’s willing to open their mind, listen to the scientific evidence, and decide for yourself just might discover that you don’t know what you think you know, and that the existence of God may not be such a stretch afterall. It’s a conversation worth listening to.
