Science and Religion go together

Science is the truth of nature. Religion is the truth of God. God created nature. Therefore, science and religion will never contradict each other. In fact, in science we see God's mystery revealed. We may never understand the Divine mysteries, but we are able to understand nature. And, just as in the Catholic religion, no true dogma is ever contradicted or changed, but instead has more depth uncovered, so is science revealed more and more in depth. Ian has created a great podcast that explores all these mysteries with solid history. The show is entertaining, not too long, not too short, so you're able to digest what was said and even do a little digging on your own. The scientists he's chosen so far have been very interesting. Some I knew by name, some I knew because of some scientific or mathematical term given their name. I hope to learn more.

Love it. keep it coming

I feel as if we are having a conversation. It is a fun and educational podcast. Great for any person of faith to how religion and science are not opposed.

Very Cool!

Like Ian I am a Catholic and pro-science. It rankles me when people dismiss my faith as being unscientific or antiscientific. They just don't understand. Well, Ian has produced an interesting and educational podcast. Even ignoring the religious aspects, it is an interesting podcast about the history and philosophy of science. Well done!
