This is a recording of the episode that streamed live on Thursday 23 July 2020 at 3:00pm Pacific Time. The reading for this episode was Is Buddhism really scientific? by Francisca Cho. Greg and Gregory talk about the way Buddhism is presented as “scientific” in the west, and especially in the United States, and whether this presentation is a manifestation of colonialism, or part of the natural evolution and re-interpretation of religion over time, or both. They also answer questions sent on Twitter from Joe Dee, Jack Matirko, Harry Hoofcloppen, and The Satanic Temple NYC. Some points covered in this episode:

  • Mythologizing race and gender
  • Who gets to define Buddhism?
  • “Scientific” religion
