Episode 40 - Ask Rob Bell

For this week's Ask Science Mike, we address the following questions: What do you do when you have lost your faith forever and how do you find community? How do you believe in the bible and be inspired by it when you view the Bible as a library of books instead of one finite and divinely authored one? How can I help my Baptist friends see the common ground of all religious belief systems?  What would the world-wide reaction be to a clear sign of intelligent alien life?

The Ask Science Mike theme song was written, performed, and recorded by Jeb Bodiford. If you need original podcast music, he's your guy.

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.
