This week Derek spends a little bit of his time before the start of Dragon*Con with Victor Stenger discussing his latest book, "God and the Folly of Faith: The Incompatibility of Science and Religion". Based on his experience as a particle physicist, Stenger outlines how hard science actually has a lot to say about all supernatural and religious claims, even though many have mistakenly gone too far to accommodate ideas for which there is no scientific evidence.
