Episode 123 - Miracles, Abortion, and the Minimum Wage

For this week's Ask Science Mike, we address the following questions: How would raising the minimum wage effect our economy? What do you think about miracles? When does a soul enter the body, and how does that inform a stance on abortion? Are there any credible, secular challenges to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution via Natural Selection.
