God has given us something called Agency, or free will. He will allow us to do what we will to do. But, he also makes it clear that the responsibility for those actions is going to be ours afterward. Some choices will have affects far beyond ourselves. In this episode we look at how a group of scientists (as also the political leaders they acted under the direction of) exercised this freedom to act. The result of which is one of the most hotly debated topics ever, the nuclear bomb.
The Tale of Winter Wood
Religience is a podcast where Religious and Science topics are turned into stories that help the listener learn more about the topic. Though many today like to think of Religion and Science as opposing each other that is not the case. Both play a vital role in society and each can balance the other so that neither one "goes off the rails." In the Religience podcast you will hear a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a Science Teacher sharing the truths that he has learned to love from his religious and science background. Listen in for a celebration of truth and the methods by which truth is obtained.
