Our latest episode tackling questions from the listeners starts by considering whether we can harmonise a belief in modern science and a literalistic reading of the Genesis account of creation. Did God really create the universe in six days only 6,000 years ago, but then set up all of created order with fossils, carbon decay and the speed of light to only appear to be billions of years old? Why would he seek to mislead and deceive his people like that? Then we move onto a gentle riposte after our episode on dementia accused philosophy of being an elitist discipline, useless to the needs and insights of real people. Maybe philosophers could have something to teach us after all?
