Where Science and Faith Converge


  • Contemplative Artificial Intelligence?

    November 12, 2019

    Why can we think about the universe when the universe can’t think about us? It’s this very ability to contemplate things outside of us that makes humans unique. Yet many scientists are working to endow artificial intelligence with this distinctly human ability as well. But if AI is programmed to contemplate the world and then act upon conclusions it draws, whose ethics and morals will it use to make those decisions? Dr. Jeff Zweerink joins host Michelle Mendoza on Live From Seattle to discuss this question and share his thoughts on how even AI provides an argument for the existence of God.

  • A God Unconstrained

    November 11, 2019

    Every day we move through life, constrained by dimensions of height, width, depth, and time. So much so that we barely notice these constraints. But what do this world and our spiritual lives look like for God, who is not limited by such things? Dr. Hugh Ross joins Pat Robertson on The 700 Club to discuss how the answer to this impacts common questions Christians have about free will and predestination, our assurance of salvation, and how Jesus’s one-time death on the cross could cover the sins of those who came before and after—even what heaven might look like!

  • How a Hide-and-Seek Game with Rats Affirms Biblical Creation

    October 1, 2019

    Ten lab rats were taught to play hide-and-seek with a human—learning to both to hide and seek. While most experiments reward rats with food, this one simply rewarded them with positive social interaction with the researchers instead. What makes these animals enjoy attention from humans? And how does that relational characteristic affirm biblical creation? Hugh Ross joins host Michelle Mendoza on Live From Seattle to discuss the nature of animals and their relationships with humans, even touching on the question, “Will our pets be in heaven?”

  • Ken Ham and Jeff Zweerink: Do we live on a young or old earth?

    September 25, 2019

    Unbelievable? host Justin Brierley moderates an energetic and thought-provoking debate between founder of Answers in Genesis Ken Ham and astrophysicist and Christian apologist Jeff Zweerink.

  • Does the Universe Have a Purpose?

    September 16, 2019

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson has expressed that the universe has no purpose. He recently took this thought a step further in saying, “Anyone who expresses a more definitive response to the question is claiming access to knowledge not based upon empirical foundations.” Hugh Ross and Kenneth Samples join Lauren Green of FOX’s A Spirited Debate to discuss the importance of both empirical and nonempirical evidence, and whether science does indeed provide tangible evidence for purpose.

  • Are We Alone?

    August 22, 2019

    There is nothing quite as tantalizing as the thought of UFOs, aliens, and government secrets surrounding extraterrestrials. The world’s captivation with the possibility of alien life seems to grow with each passing year. And now, a recent call on social media to raid Area 51 on September 20, 2019 has only served to stoke the flames of intrigue. Dr. Hugh Ross joins Pat Robertson on The 700 Club to discuss the possibility of life “out there” and consider the idea that it may have already visited us.

  • Melding Technology and Humanity: How Far Is Too Far?”

    August 13, 2019

    Unprecedented breakthroughs in bioscience are leading humans down new paths, including the possibility of transforming the human state. No longer just a beacon of hope for those living with debilitating diseases and injuries, the merging of technology and humanity can help us live beyond our physical limitations. Transhumanists now have the potential to build a utopia and fulfill the human need for transcendence . . . but by doing so, are we playing God? Fazale “Fuz” Rana joins the host of Steve Brown, Etc. to offer insight on the growing movement of transhumanism—its promises, potential, and pitfalls.

  • The Fiftieth Anniversary of the Moon Landing

    July 9, 2019

    July 20, 2019, marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and the words that will forever ring through the corridors of history: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Jeff Zweerink joins host Michelle Mendoza on Live from Seattle to share his thoughts on this iconic event, as well as project where we might be headed in the future.

  • Should We Seek to Destroy Bad Arguments or Foster Dialogue?

    June 18, 2019

    As Christians, we want our voices heard regarding the many hot-button issues currently being debated in the press or social media. How do we do it? Do we simply memorize a few “silver bullet” arguments that support our position? And what is our overall goal? Should we seek to enter into conversation, or should our goal be to shut our opponent down? Jeff Zweerink joins the host of In the Market with Janet Parshall to equip us with practical advice on how to engage opinions that differ from our own.

  • Hugh Ross: A Dialogue with a Skeptic

    June 11, 2019

    When it comes to the truth of the Christian faith, skeptics pose a myriad of questions on topics ranging from heaven, hell, and the reliability of the Bible to black holes and even the possibility of alien life. Hugh Ross joins host Joe Rupe on Lighting the Void to fearlessly explore these questions and more.

  • The Science of Heaven

    June 11, 2019

    What will the new heaven and earth be like? Will the New Jerusalem really be in the shape of a cube? And will there be new physics there? Hugh Ross joins host Michelle Mendoza on Live from Seattle to imagine heaven from a scientist’s perspective.

  • First-Ever Image of a Black Hole

    April 30, 2019

    Astronomers have used eight ground-based telescopes to capture the first image of a black hole in a distant galaxy. Capturing this image was no small accomplishment, and it has generated excitement throughout the scientific community. Jeff Zweerink joins host Michelle Mendoza on Live from Seattle to discuss this amazing achievement, why astronomers are excited about it, and how the heavens continue to declare the glory of God.

  • Will Earth’s Shifting Magnetic Pole Cause Global Chaos?

    April 24, 2019

    Earth’s magnetic north, driven by molten iron shifting deep beneath the crust, has been moving ever since it was discovered in 1831. Scientists say that if Earth’s magnetic field were to weaken significantly, it could collapse altogether and flip polarity—leading some people to fear that the planet will be ravaged by massive electrical storms and blasts of solar radiation. What might a geometric reversal mean in a time when the world depends so much on technology? Hugh Ross joins Pat Robertson on CBN News to discuss the potential dangers as well as to calm fears and offer hope.

  • Have Scientists Discovered Superhuman Genes?

    April 16, 2019

    What are we to make of it when human genetics go awry, creating a sort of “superhuman” abilities? Is this evidence of human evolution? Fazale “Fuz” Rana joins host Michelle Mendoza on Live from Seattle to discuss a few of these people with extraordinary abilities and how science can tap into these genetic mutations to benefit humanity. Perhaps most importantly, Fuz and Michelle explore the “God story” behind it all.

  • Are All Sins Equal in God’s Eyes?

    April 1, 2019

    Does the Bible defend slavery? Are all sins equal to God? What does it mean that Jesus is God’s only begotten son? Philosopher and theologian Kenneth Samples joins the host of Afternoons with Bill Arnold to answer your questions about the nature of sin, evidence for hell, the certain hope of forgiveness in Christ, and more.

  • A Christian Response to Human Trafficking

    January 8, 2019

    What is the value of a person? How we answer that question can be greatly influenced by our beliefs about human origins. Fazale “Fuz” Rana joins host Michelle Mendoza on Live from Seattle to share his own story of how helping children rescued from human trafficking drove home the impact a worldview can have on a community.

  • Biblical Contradiction or Spiritual Mystery?

    January 7, 2019

    God is infinite and eternal while human beings are finite and temporal, which means humans can never fully grasp the mysteries of God. And one problem this creates is that people—especially skeptics—often equate mystery with contradiction. Kenneth Samples joins the host of Afternoons with Bill Arnold to discuss the difference between mystery and contradiction and to carefully examine a few alleged biblical contradictions.

  • Where Do Human Rights Come From?

    December 14, 2018

    Monday, December 10, 2018 marked the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This important document was drafted by representatives with different backgrounds from all regions of the world. But where did the foundation for the ideas found in this document come from? Some may say human rights are intuitive. Others say that humans are endowed with these rights by the One who created us. Does this secular document inadvertently reveal the image of God? Kenneth Samples joins the hosts of Brian and Jannelle Mornings to unpack the answers to these thought-provoking questions.

  • Should Christianity’s Differences Be Debated Indiscriminately?

    December 3, 2018

    A skeptic once asked Kenneth Samples, “Why should I seriously consider Christian truth claims when Christianity is so deeply divided?” Kenneth believes that Christians should focus on our commonalities—rather than our differences—when having discussions in front of non-Christians. But isn’t fighting for the “right beliefs” important? Kenneth joins the host of Afternoons with Bill Arnold to discuss best practices when engaging in Christian “hot button” topics.

  • Birth of First Gene-Edited Babies Stirs Debate

    December 1, 2018

    While the idea of “customizing” babies through gene editing has been discussed in recent news—theory has now become fact. However groundbreaking this technique may be, many people are concerned. Is CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing the cure for what was once incurable? Or is this the doorway to tailor-made human beings? Anjeanette “AJ” Roberts joins Hal Roberts, host of Bridge City News, to discuss this important and controversial topic.
