An atheist, Andrew, calls to challenge Patrick’s claim that love cannot be accounted for through atheistic evolutionary processes. Patrick leads Andrew up to the point of admitting that, contrary to the atheist world view, immaterial realities, such as love and truth, are not only impossible to be derived from physical evolution, they are outside and above the physical realm. Even though they disagreed, Patrick invited Andrew to call back to discuss this further another time.
- Patrick comments on the phenomenon of bodily assumption
- Michael – Coworker is asking about Catholicism. Why do we believe Mary was immaculately conceived and the new Adam and Eve being Jesus and Mary?
- John – Any good book recommendations to help me share the birds and bees talk with my young son?
- Betsy – Some people think we don’t have souls. I think that love is an argument for humans being more than just animals. What are your thoughts?
- Bradley – Is a person involved in sexual relations outside of marriage (adultery) free to pursue or be perused by someone in a state of grace?
- Andrew – I think that evolution and survival of the fittest can lead to love.
- Patrick recommends “The Last Superstition” by Edward Feser
