The Car-Universe Without A Motor — The Parker J Cole Show

fromspaceOn April 5th, Speculative Faith Lorehaven began to publish a series of articles called the Car-Universe without a Motor, written by Travis Perry, an author, publisher, Army Reserve officer, and hard science and fantasy fiction geek. Having been a supporter of Travis’s for a long time, and thoroughly in love with his previous set of articles about how aliens point to God, I was looking forward to this series.

Were we created? If we were created, then what for? And who’s the Creator? Does it matter? What about the solar system, the galaxy, the universe at large–did anyone create them? And if so, were they created with a purpose in mind?

One of the reasons why I am so attracted to the series is because the subject of creation, of origin, of the beginning is what interested me in apologetics. Our origins matter. Not just the origins of humanity, but of animal, plant, and other biological and living elements of our world. Over time, I’ve noticed that as our understanding increases, so does our appreciation for the complexity of a reality with a definite purpose in mind. See, the universe is designed for discovery, for wonder, for exploration. Is this universe, then, simply a car without a motor? A facade of design but not really?

Are we passengers in a car without a motor or are we in a car that’s going somewhere with a destination in mind? There’s so much to delve into so join me as I chat with Travis Perry.at 2 pm Eastern.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Science vs. Religion

In the battle of ideas, this topic is one that represents the forces of good and evil, fantasy and reality, truth and lies…or does it? Is there really a battle between science and religion or is there more reason to believe they’re allies?

Many naturalistic scientists seem to have taken up an holy cause to differentiate intelligence from faith. Or, to put it another way, faith is a nebulous magical wand wielded by delusional people while intellect is the steadfast sun in the sky to view the world. Young people especially reject religion saying, “Science says this and that’s why I don’t believe in God in anymore.” Cue dramatic music…science has won the victory again.

But is that really the case? It is becoming more apparent that science and religion are not diametrically opposed to each other. In fact, they both provide each other the proper foundation in understanding the world. There’s a lot to this topic so we’ll be sitting down and chatting with my guest co host Trevor Slone — author of Science vs. Religion.

The Fourth Dimension

One of the most fascinating things I have come to appreciate is mankind’s propensity to probe. To dig. To ask questions of ourselves and our world. This hunger for knowledge is what keeps us striving to improve our understanding.

Earlier scientists had religious backgrounds. As they began to study the world around them, it must have been wondrous to see God’s handiwork and know this is how God did it. 

It is a great privilege to ask, to hypothesize.

Today, we will be discussing the Fourth Dimension and how it relates to the origins of the world and the universe. In a way, we can peel back the veil and see the fingerprint of God. This may sound like heavy stuff but thankfully, you don’t have to be a scientist to understand it.

With me to discuss this is radio host and author, Josh Peck.
