Episode 149 - Army Service, Science, and Spirituality: A Conversation with Wesley Mintz

In Episode 149, Keith and Justin are joined by their good friend Wesley as they talk about his experiences in the Army, as well as his ever-evolving and complex spiritual views. Why do people decide to join the Army? How do our views of the military differ, and how do our perspectives and experiences (as a veteran, a current service member, and a civilian) affect the way we interact with one another? Also, since Wesley was a member of the old youth group, we also ask him about his spiritual views, and how they are informed and shaped by physics, astronomy, and science. Is it possible to be a young earth creationist and still hold to science? What do we mean when we say the Bible is figurative or literal? How can we engage in these conversations, even if we hold radically different beliefs? Listen to find out! In the beginning, the guys talk about binge watching Stranger Things, setting goals for the future, and Wesley’s upsurge in Twitter followers. Finally, in the end, the guys give their final thoughts.
