Evolution 2.0

Lynn Margulis’ last interview with Conner Habib

Lynn Margulis, who died in 2012, was a piercing luminary in the history of evolutionary theory. She overturned the money changer's tables in the temple of science and infuriated a lot of people. But history has continued to vindicate her. In this interview, she and Conner explore a very different way of thinking about life itself and you’ll hear her brilliant mind and feisty posture.

  • Detecting Cancer at Stage Negative One - Perry Marshall at SBMT

    Perry Marshall spoke at the Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics 21st annual conference in Los Angeles, 16 March 2024. He describes how outdated textbook evolution is inhibiting research and keeping us stuck in the old, gene-centric paradigm, and how the Polyploid Giant Cancer Cell model, advocated at a recent conference at MD Anderson in Houston, is a far more elegant model for detecting and treating cancer at the very earliest stages.
  • Brothers Reunite: The Story Behind Evolution 2.0

    EXACTLY 20 years ago this week, I flew to China to see my brother Bryan.We got into an argument on a bus (a story I’ve told 1000 times). He wasbailing on his missionary career and his entire Christian upbringing, and I found this deeply upsetting.Odds are you’ve heard my version of the story: the Evolution 2.0 book andprize, my work in virology and cancer research, and the 1/3 of my life I spent asa member of the science community. It has redefined my life.People always ask how this turned out for Bryan. Odds are you have NOTheard his side of the story! You might be surprised how attentively he haswatched as this has unfolded. www.coffeehousetheology.com on Amazon"Understanding Living Systems" by Denis and Ray Noble"Evolution 2.0" by Perry Marshall"Master and his Emissary" by Iain McGilchrist
  • The Reasonable Ineffectiveness of Mathematics in the Life Sciences

    Well-known biologist and author Sy Garte, author of the new book “Science and Faith in Harmony” joins Perry. They explore the alignment between science and faith and probe purpose in biology. They discuss the challenges of applying mathematical concepts to biological systems, recognizing that EVERY rule in biology has an exception. The two discuss changing norms in academic discourse, the new journal Biocosmos and "The Unreasonable Ineffectiveness of Mathematics in the Life Sciences.” Sy's book:'s website: www.sygarte.comSy's X feed:
  • Special Update Directly from Perry Marshall: An "Open Source Breakthrough" for Saving Millions of Lives

    "The Open Source Tissue Search Engine". This "Tissue Search Engine" will allow us to detect the early evolution of cancer -- THE KEY to reversing it. And this is why we should all be so excited by its breakthrough potential.The best part? With a little bit of help from you... We'll be intercepting hundreds of patients with early-stage, treatable cancers in 12 months!
  • The Quantum Physics of Business

    What does quantum physics have to do with business decision-making, art, and AI? Perry Marshall spoke to Brian Kurtz’s Titans group in Connecticut in April and covered a dizzying range of topics from quantum physics to ChatGPT and the real problems of AI that no one seems to be talking about. Titans Xcelerator (

    Bob Regnerus digs into the real story behind Azra Raza's day long fireside chat in Vancouver, British Columbia Sept 23 & 24, 2023. Full information at
  • Understanding Living Systems with Ray and Denis Noble

    The overwhelming success of genetics and molecular biology in the 1970s had an unfortunate side effect. DNA became the 'be-all' and 'end-all' of biology, and “the selfish gene” became the new secular pop religion. Physiology and medicine suffered great blows from this shift. The human genome project, though valuable, did not deliver even 10% of what it promised, and the consequences to healthcare have been devastating. The new book Understanding Living Systems by Raymond and Denis Noble is an easy-to-read guide to the New Biology that brings purpose back into nature and respects the agency and autonomy of each organism and its systems. Denis Noble website: Noble website:
  • The Truth About AI that not 1 Video in 100 is Acknowledging

    Bryan Trilli is a serial entrepreneur who owns a company called Optimized Marketing that trains machine learning programmers to write better code. In this interview, he forcefully challenges the fiction of the “AI Singularity” showing that it’s impossible for this to happen given current technology. Consequently, we are asking all of the wrong questions. In this interview, we discuss what the real questions are. 
  • Johnjoe McFadden: Occam's Razor and Quantum Biology

    Occam's Razor says the simplest explanation is the best. While its application has many subtleties, it tells us that the best model of theory is the one that's most elegant and invokes the fewest extraneous explanations. Johnjoe McFadden is a professor at the University of Surrey in the UK and we discuss simplicity and the mind-bending world of quantum biology.Website:
