Podcast: The Amateur Society – Fire At Notre Dame – 04.15.2019

2019.04.16

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion about the fire at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. This iconic structure has stood for almost a millennium, and the footage of the roof burning and the spire collapsing was shocking. Given that large portions of the building are still intact, what does this tell us about the critical essence of such a place? In moments like these we should ask additional questions. Why do we immediately perceive Notre Dame as significant? What would different worldviews say about the significance of the structure? How can we be more thoughtful in general instead of only being forced to reflect by dramatic events if at all? Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

2019.04.10

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion about the importance of aligning our priorities. How do we balance the different aspects of decisions that we have to make? How important is having a defined set of priorities? Whether in careers or personal relationships, we all must make an effort to examine what our decisions reveal about our priorities. Incremental improvement is well worth the effort. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: On the Objective – Trade In Something Useless For Something Priceless – Steven Menking – 04.07.2019

2019.04.07 OtO

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles! We must absolutely get into the mindset of the importance of the eternal. The infinity of eternity with God is so much more substantial and important than the finite nature of our earthly lives. However, each day it seems we will take time for the pleasures of this life while choosing to take time away from sowing into the eternal kingdom of God. Take five minutes today and begin to trade something useless for something priceless. Building that habit will be one of the most important things that you can ever do. Store up treasures in heaven! The scriptures from this message are found in Proverbs 2 and John 17.

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Evolution, Science, And Worldview – 04.01.2019

2019.04.01

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion about the scientific method, recent acknowledgements of weaknesses in the neo-Darwinian synthesis, and the connection between science and worldview. This kind of conversation is extremely important, as we all have a responsibility to go at least one step deeper beyond the textbook presentations of leading theories. Such descriptions are usually extremely brief and contain definitive statements. In reality, there are always more questions than answers. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

2019.03.05

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion about properly basic beliefs. How can we prove that our rational faculties are reliable? What does it even mean to prove something?

Join us as we examine some nuances in this pivotal topic in philosophy. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Reckoning With The Inevitability Of Death – 02.25.2019

2019.02.27

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a critical discussion about death. We all know intellectually that death is inevitable, but hardly anyone seeks to reckon with the implications of this truth. Death is uncomfortable and even frightening to ponder whether we have been mercifully spared from its immediacy for a time or whether we have been relentlessly exposed to it. It’s no wonder that people try to avoid thinking or speaking of it whenever possible, but it must be reckoned with boldly. Hopefully this episode encourages you to ask additional questions about this overlooked topic. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!
