The clue is in "Reasons to Believe"

Rather misleading this one. If you look at the list of titles you may be fooled into believing that this is a series of short articles on recent developments across the science spectrum. However, they tend to follow a strict formula. It starts off with an analysis of the subject which is actually not that bad. However, it is all leading to the question "How do we square this with Creationism?". The answers are predictably depressing and rarely raise above the "God done it" level. One podcast on the subject of the relationship between mammalian hair and claws ended up with a discussion which suggested that God sits in Heaven with his DNA Toolbox of various bits & pieces and chooses which best bits to use. There is reference to his "economy of creation" where he tries not to be too miraculous by "re-using" his previous miracles. Strictly for creationists and it should be removed from the iTunes Science podcast category.

Find Truth by Evaluating Alternatives

This is a helpful series of discussions on recent scientific discoveries...a healthy alternative to the boring matra 'randomness generated everything despite all evidence to the contrary'. The Reasons to Believe staff producing these podcasts have an orderly Christian worldview and obviously they defend that worldview...but they honestly interact with arguments to the contrary with empathy and sincerity.

In a search for truth you will find the Reasons to Believe approach refreshingly open and no where near as doctrinaire as the mockery produced by some of its detractors. Self-evidently the Reasons to Believe staff value truth.

In the wider scheme of things, the Reasons to Believe staff have produced a cosmic model open to future scientific reenforcement or repudiation. Ask holders of alternative worldviews if they are transparent enough to admit to the possibility of evidence that would disprove or cast confusion on their central tenets!

Naturalists should avoid grasping at straws in order sidestep moral obligations. Where would science be today if its practicioners believed there were no laws? Is it foolishness to believe immutable laws exist in the moral realm (and hence that there is a moral law giver and enforcer)...when we enthusiastically take advantage of laws in the scientific realm? And is it not self-defeating to repudiate moral law and then criticize creationists for misleading mankind (if in fact there is no moral law!)?
