In this edition of Radio Worldview, hosts Jeff Baldwin and Bill Jack respond to two e-mails from listeners. The first asks about a “Great Music” website; the second has questions about bioethics. This leads to a discussion of the voodoo science of eugenics, and the reminder that eugenics isn’t dead. Christians will face more and more questions about tinkering with genes in the womb–How will we respond to the doctor that wants to “help” us have a child with a higher IQ? For the most part, Jeff and Bill manage to stay on-topic.

Though it takes awhile to get the ball rolling, hosts Jeff and Bill finally dig in to the problem at hand: a full-page ad placed in The Denver Post by a local abortionist fighting a right-to-life amendment. The tone of the ad is typical: the abortionist assumes that all pro-life folks are backwards and incapable of grasping the most basic logic. Then he articulates his “logic”! As it turns out, this is a perfect illustration of the problems created by relativism. Jeff and Bill unpack the problems and discuss the right-to-life cause.
In this podcast, hosts Bill Jack and Jeff Baldwin finally get around to asking the all-important question, WWWW? Or, what would wheat want? Bill triggers the discussion by reading a newspaper article about Swiss scientists being required by their government to consider the feelings of flora. Jeff goes ballistic, and this leads to a discussion of relativism and the loss of identity. F. Scott Fitzgerald provides a graphic picture in his classic description of his middle-age breakdown, The Crack-up.
That’s right, there are now women who claim that having an abortion is not only a valid decision but actually the “unselfish” option that helps them reduce their carbon footprint. Jeff Baldwin begins the show by reading excerpts from a Daily Mail article about a woman who believes having children is selfish, and then Bill Jack discusses how strangely puritanical the left has become. Midstream, Jeff changes emphasis and demands to know whom Bill is voting for in the presidential election. Bill never says, but Jeff does. A discussion of the Christian’s role in a democracy ensues.
