As the name of this episode implies, you’re listening to the kitchen sink. Radio Worldview hosts Bill and Jeff bounce from topic to topic, sometimes prompted by listener questions but often prompted only by their own impulses (and appetites). After an episode of “Roadkill Cafe,” Bill and Jeff respond to a follow-up question about their recent discussion of feminism, as well as a question about the plans by Answers in Genesis to build a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark. How does this lead to a discussion of Moby Dick? Well, it makes sense to Bill and Jeff.

We know! Worldview Academy’s podcast “Radio Worldview” has been very inconsistent lately. And we know now, thanks to all your kind e-mails and encouragement, that many of you listen and want more shows. This show represent’s Jeff’s very first effort to upload and post a podcast all by himself, like a big boy. If it succeeds, then we promise that Radio Worldview will become incredibly consistent, starting in September. In this show, Bill and Jeff talk about what they’re working on, and Jeff worries about delivering the sermon at his home church. Keep your fingers crossed . . .
Host Bill Jack has never been bashful about articulating his suspicions of the Intelligent Design movement. Co-host Jeff Baldwin thought he had Bill on the ropes when Ben Stein’s Expelled was recently released, but Bill is sticking to his guns. Fortunately, a thoughtful listener asks just the right question, allowing Bill to (finally) clearly explain why he takes umbrage with Intelligent Design. Also, Jeff rants and raves about celebrity worship.
Believe it or not, the United States let Bill back into the country after his trip to Qatar, so he and Jeff are reunited hosting Radio Worldview. After a brief segment they like to call “Where the Tech are We?” they launch quickly into a discussion of Ben Stein’s documentary “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.” If you haven’t yet seen this movie, see it now! Both Bill and Jeff went into the movie with low expectations, and both were delighted to see such a clear plea for academic freedom, as well as a useful discussion about worldviews.
Yes, the segments are still here. In fact, Jeff and Bill introduce a new segment called “The Roadkill Cafe,” where they discuss the best restaurants they’ve encountered at certain camp locations. But this time the segments don’t take over the show! After a few “20 second” segments–ha, ha–Bill and Jeff turn their attention to a new resolution making the rounds in the European Union. Incredibly, this resolution takes censorship to a new level, silencing any serious criticism of the theory of evolution in the classroom. Predictably, Bill and Jeff rant and rave.
This special edition of Radio Worldview is the audio from Bill Jack’s recent appearance on The Canadian Broadcasting Company’s “The Current.”
Yes, William Jennings Bryan has a great college named after him, and he served as a spokesman for the Christian worldview at the beginning of the twentieth century– nonetheless host Jeff Baldwin has little patience for him, largely because Bryan set out to defend God as the Creator without properly understanding why it matters how old the universe is. In Part Two of this two-part series, Jeff and co-host Bill Jack finally spell out exactly why the age of the earth matters. As expected, Hugh Ross figures prominently in the discussion.
In Part One of this two-part series, hosts Jeff and Bill face the final frontier. While many evangelicals have recognized the bankruptcy of evolutionary theories, many still cling to the assumption that the earth is billions of years old. As long as Christians who believe in an old earth still believe in special creation and the Garden of Eden, and treat scripture as trustworthy, why should it matter how old they think the earth is? Bill and Jeff stay remarkably restrained in Part One, and then pick up momentum in the second half.
Host Jeff Baldwin wonders why host Bill Jack gets huffy about the Intelligent Design movement. Is it because ID doesn’t articulate the characteristics of the Designer? Is it because lots of Christians are pouring money into ID, and that money could be put to better use by Worldview Academy? Is it because ID masquerades as a secular theory? Finally, Jeff and Bill get to talk about Bill’s new DVD featuring his recent debate with Dr. Tooley.
In this episode, WVA founder Bill Jack recounts his recent debate with University of Colorado philosophy professor Dr. Michael Tooley. The topic, “The evolutionary model has been a greater boon to society than the creation model,” was generally avoided by Dr. Tooley, but he makes some telling admissions.
Jeff Baldwin goads Bill Jack into saying what he really thinks (Bill is always so bashful) about making Genesis fit with evidence that the earth is old, as well as the wisdom of expending a lot of energy arguing for Intelligent Design.
