Why do so many Christians mistrust climate change science? Does consumerism make us depressed? Is church good for your health? Phil brings in a whole mess of news items for this potluck podcast episode!

There have been some odd issues with video/audio sync in the last few videos. This one had an audio stutter in the first few minutes, and it de-synced after that point.
I’ve been enjoying the podcast for the past couple of years. I’ve noted that more of the episodes recently have been interviews with guests/authors, and while I do enjoy those interviews, I have missed these “potluck” episodes with just Phil, Skye, and Christian. Not that you’re asking, but my preference would be to have a more 50/50 distribution between interview episodes and current-affairs discussion episodes.
Thanks for all the fun and good discussion!
This a boy named Cole Matsunami and I love your website/podcast and I am a huge fan of your program which is Veggietales, 321 penguins, and Larryboy Cartoon adventures. And I know that VeggieTales and the other two programs used to be on a program called Qubo but not anymore. So I was wondering if you can aire VeggieTales or the Nick jr company on a channel called Nick jr. Because I thought that Veggietales would be a very good type of show that would fit into the program because it’s more kiddy like and has lots of adventures and has lots of great VeggieTale songs that preschoolers would love to enjoy. Don’t you think? So if you get this comment please let me know
Love your program

Loved the ‘cast, but the Facebook discussion got a bit dicey to say the least. Mentioning climate change as a fact set many on edge. But keep it up – I appreciate your thoughts!
I was genuinely frustrated with the discussion about climate change. The discussion ultimately came to the point that Christians who question climate change are acting in a form of spiritually-acceptable ignorance. That infuriated me. Call me a skeptic, sure, but get my reasoning right. There is a LOT of data suggesting that CO2 levels do not cause climate change — in fact, there is some evidence that CO2 levels are a response to warming, not a cause. And there is plenty of evidence of the purveyors of CO2-based warming using doctored, gerrymandered data. I suggest looking at the research of Dr Roy Spencer, Joe Bastardi, Bjorn Lomborg (who is significantly different in his approach to the first two) as beginning data points. Data points … not “faith mixed with head in the sand” points.
