Men at Work

What's the difference between work and recreation? Our guidance counselors told us to find what we love to do and we'll never work a day in our lives.  How true is this? Is "work" merely a mindset? 

If you've spent any time on social media, you'll immediately be struck by the lack of charity, poise, and humility in many discussion threads.  In this episode, we offer a primer on the intellectual virtues and what it looks like to embody these in conversations, particularly online.

Don't worry be happy, right? But, what if you don't have enough money to be happy? What is enough? What does it mean to be happy?  In this episode, we have an impromptu back and forth on the merits of how we answer these questions.

In the next two episodes we look at some ways that we fail to be rational.  In this one, Tony and Clinton discuss several fallacies of reasoning.  If we can learn to spot them and avoid them, it will help us be more open to truth.

We live on earth.  It was here before us and will likely be around after us.  But how long has it been here to begin with?  What is the best way to even answer this question and should we use the Bible as a reliable indicator for truth on this subject?  In this episode, we discuss and assess a view known as Young Earth Creationism while attending to data from science and Ancient Near East studies.
