Miracle or Science


A Talk by Brian Dunning


An insider's look at five religious miracles that are far more interesting when we discover what actually took place. Simple debunking is just as useless as uncritical belief; the real excitement comes from learning the history and the context.

Brian is also the author of five books based on the podcast. A computer scientist by trade, Brian uses new media to showcase the rewards of science and critical thinking. He is a member of the National Association of Science Writers and lives in southern California with his family
