Recently, an article in wnd.com declared, “1,000 scientists go public with doubts on evolution.” Evolution News notes, “Over 1,000 doctoral scientists from around the world have signed a statement publicly expressing their skepticism about the contemporary theory of Darwinian evolution. The statement, located online at www.dissentfromdarwin.org, reads: ‘We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged.’” One of those who signed is Dr. Jonathan Wells, who has earned 2 Ph.D.s, including one in Biology from Berkley. Dr. Wells of the Discovery Institute is perhaps best known for his book, Icons of Evolution. Dr. Jonathan Wells joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss scientific doubts about Darwinism. www.discovery.org

A former Trump advisor, Dr. Michael Anton, a Hillsdale lecturer, wrote the following about today’s divisive political landscape: “America cannot long go on like this. Something’s got to give and something will.” Anton wrote a book recently, After the Flight 93 Election. He notes, “These are dangerous time. The left has made them so and insists on increasing the danger. Leftists hold virtually every commanding height in our society—financial, intellectual, educational, cultural, administrative—and yet they affect the posture of an oppressed besieged ‘resistance.’” Dr. Michael Anton joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss America during these divide times. www.hillsdale.edu

Should we consider all suffering as a form of deserved punishment from our Just and Holy God? Or, can certain suffering be looked at as a form of sanctifying grace that God uses to make His children more like Christ?

What do we know about the first Congress of the United States (before we even became a country)? Why did they meet in the first place? Here is a discussion on the Sons of Liberty, the Stamp Act, the Quebec Act, and the growing conflict between the American colonies and Mother England c. 1774. Dr. Peter Lillback is Jerry Newcombe’s guest in this discussion. Dr. Peter Lillback is the president of Providence Forum, a group dedicated to rediscovering our nation’s rich Christian heritage. Together with Jerry Newcombe, Dr. Lillback wrote a book that became a bestseller on the faith of our nation’s found father, George Washington’s Sacred Fire. The two authors put together 26 podcasts on the faith of George Washington from virtually every angle. Now they continue with a new series of podcasts on the faith of our founding fathers. Here is a discussion on the prelude to independence. www.providenceforum.org
