Conversation about the Primacy of Information for Science

Last Thursday, February 27, 2020, my good friend Fred Skiff, chair of the physics department at the University of Iowa, and I discussed themes in my book BEING AS COMMUNION as they relate to the primacy of information for science. The two sponsors of the event were the campus ministries Ratio Christi (thank you James Klopfenstein) and Geneva (thank you Thomas Wolthuis).

Below is a lightly edited version of the conversation, which James Klopfenstein graciously gave me permission to post on YouTube:

The conversation examines why information is the most basic object of study in science and how Conservation of Information naturally leads to the conclusion that intelligence is the ultimate source of information.
