Eavesdropping Ep3: Tyler McNabb on Catholicism

by Max Andrews

Glasgow Botanic GardensIn Eavesdropping Ep. 3, I’m with Tyler McNabb again and we discuss his views on certain theological concepts, doctrines, and issues pertaining to Catholicism. This podcast, though now whole, was recorded over two days ranging from talking in a quite environment to walking through the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow, Scotland as we head towards City Centre. Again, you’ll experience the raw conversational format of Eavesdropping, as if you’re walking along with us.

Eavesdropping is conversational, informal podcast that is sometimes a monologue, or dialogue with guests, on various topics including philosophy, theology, science, contemporary events, and random meanderings of a philosopher.

*NOTE*: As evidenced by me accidentally saying the universe is 3.7 billion years old I meant to say it’s 13.7 billion years old, demonstrating the off the cuff conversational mishaps!

Research Funding

by Max Andrews

I am currently completing my MA in Philosophy and have been accepted to the University of Edinburgh’s PhD in Philosophy program. I’ve also applied to Oxford and Cambridge but won’t find out if I’ve been accepted for quite a while. My research is in the fine-tuning of nomic behavior in multiverse scenarios.

My wife and I will need to move to Edinburgh, Scotland next summer (2013). We are graciously seeking funds and donation from anyone who believes in the potential impact my research will have for philosophy, science, and theology. We have faced several trials with my Crohn’s disease, which hasn’t put us in a financial advantage for this endeavor. We need about $18,000 for the student visa application process and additional funding for tuition, travel, and setting up a new home. We’ll eventually need much more than what we are requesting here but we are hoping to work hard and earn as much money as we can to make it.

I would love to speak with anyone interested in helping us fund my PhD and contribute to academia. If you or anyone else know of anyone willing to help or even other programs or organizations that would be interested please let me know. There’s so much more I would love to discuss so please contact me at mlandrews@sententias.org. You can view my CV and present research at http://sententias.org/cv/. Thank you for your consideration. Anything would be a tremendous blessing.
