In this 129th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we discuss whether we might be in a dark age—an era in which “all of our structures of knowledge are plagued by errors, at all levels, from the trivial to the profound, periphery to the fundamental” (from Patterson essay, linked below). We discuss the failure of academia at all levels, including the fact that specialization has fractured knowledge, the processes of academia have been conflated with the processes of scientific investigation, and the corrupting influences of both governmental and private funding are nearly ubiquitous. We attest that those most enthusiastic about widespread adoption of novel medical technologies should be particularly interested in making sure that those who are injured by such technologies are recognized, and helped. And we discuss what a woman is, and why the very question—and the remarkable number of forms that answers take—points to the epidemic of sophistry that we have discussed before.
