010 - A Flood of Stories01/06/2017 Duración: 56min
Humans are great story tellers. Our history is riddled with epic tales of heroic conquests and cataclysmic disasters. But why is it that so many of our time-tested stories have different versions that seem to contradict one another? And when different cultures add their own unique spin to the retelling of the same historical event, how do we know which version is reliable? In this episode we wrestle with those questions and more as we examine the origins of one of the most popular stories of all-time: the story of the Great Flood. You'll want to buckle your seat belt for this one... it may rock the boat (how's that for a pun?... I'll see myself out).

004 - Colder War: Something Wicked This Way Comes21/04/2017 Duración: 33min
Today we introduce the most important issue of our time. Poverty, disease, climate change... all of these concerns become irrelevant if we as a species fail to keep this one issue contained - the threat of thermonuclear war. In this episode we will set the stage for our current crisis by explaining the brief history of how we arrived at a place where total annialation is never more than a button press away. Is the geopolitical situation more dangerous now than it was at the height of the Cold War? Has humanity become desensitized to our ever present danger?

002 - Does a Temple Really Need to be Built in Jerusalem?14/04/2017 Duración: 29min
In this episode, we examine a popular contemporary teaching within mainline evangelical Christian churches: the idea that a Jewish temple needs to be built in the Holy Land as a prerequisite to the second coming of Jesus Christ. In fact, some teachers of End Times would go so far as to say that the biblical prophecies about the return of the Messiah CANNOT be fulfilled until a physical temple is erected in Jerusalem once again. We will look at what the Hebrew bible has to say about this subject and whether or not there are any clues in the Christian New Testament to help us properly understand and interpret this claim.

In this episode we will examine the theological writings and predictions of Sir Isaac Newton... yes, that Isaac Newton!
