Theories of Everything with Curt Jaimungal

Paul Vanderklay on Peterson, Vervaeke, and why Sam Harris is wrong

August 23, 2020

Paul Vanderklay is a minister in the Christian Reformed Church of North America. In this conversation we talk about Jordan Peterson's / John Vervaeke's / Jonathan Pageau's and Sam Harris' influence on "new Christianity."

This wasn't going to be releaseed because Paul Vanderklay and I had our schedule's jumbled; meaning, I had simultaneous people vying for my attention due to double-booking meetings and as a result, am not as present as I would have liked to be. However, due to a few requests I'm releasing and hopefully you enjoy, since Peter does a superlative job in my absence (despite the issues with the sound quality). If you'd like Part 2 with Paul Vanderklay, let me know and leave your questions for him below. - Curt Jaimungal
