Ep 435 – The Religion of Science? – Part 1

Panel Discussion

Posted January 16th, 2018

What does it mean to be open-minded vs. closed-minded?  We experienced some kind of “open vs. closed” clash of ideologies when we challenged and deconstructed the dogmas of Mormonism, right?  So what do we do with that now?  And what about the accusations that some of us simply substituted the cultural dogmas of Mormonism for the cultural dogmas of Science?

Listen in as Randy totally keeps his cool (eh hem…) while joining Glenn, John, Lindsay, and Matt in a discussion of Rupert Sheldrake’s 2012 “Banned Ted Talk” about the 10 dogmas of a Scientific Materialist Worldview.  And don’t miss the special easter egg parody about the press conference announcing the new LDS Prophet at the end.
