You've got questions, he's got answers.
Even though we may not understand he'll talk anyway.
You've got problems, he won't solve them,
But he'll talk and talk and talk until he's blue in the face.

Episode 2 - Pangea, Prayer, and Pretending God is Real

Welcome to Ask Science Mike, a weekly podcast where I answer your questions about science, faith, and life. A lot of people seem to think that science and faith are on opposite sides, but my experiences have shown me they work together just fine.

This is the place where no questions are out-of-bounds, and no ideas are too weird to discuss. If you'd like to submit a question, just tag a Twitter, Soundcloud or Youtube post with #asksciencemike.
