Middle Ground is back!! Thanks everyone for watching this highly requested episode. As always, we are not saying science and religion necessarily have to exclude each other - there are religious scientists out there! Instead, we are exploring two sides that society often pits against each other in hopes of finding middle ground #radicalempathy. Let us know in the comments below what future episodes you'd like to see!

Jubilee, I would love to see one of your videos on 'Can Scientists and Pseudo Scientists see eye to eye', and focus specifically on Race and Gender. And don't get quacks and obvious losers. Get the top most convincing people on both sides so we can finally get to the truth about what scientific info reveals the facts about Race/Racial IQ/Existence of Race, and Gender/Gender Social Construction, Blank Slate theory versus individual human natural behavior, male and female differences. That would be a blast and very educational, but no one has the balls to do this.

why do people think that to be religious means to reject science. Or to be a scientist that you have to reject religion. That is completely false, and an uneducated way of thinking. While as some scientist believe in the big bang. As a Muslim, I believe in the one who caused the big bang.(Allah). May god(Allah) guide all of us to the truth.

I think this series is great and has a lot of potential to become even more influential. I would love to see much longer, more in depth pieces (1 hr or more) to allow both sides to truly get into the heart of the matter and find a middle ground. Given the popularity of podcasts and other long-form entertainment, there's a clear audience for it.

Science actually can backup evidence of the Bible and Jesus. Also how can you put so much faith into science even though it’s based of human mind which is not perfect. Putting faith into God is knowing that He is your creator and He created us in His image and to know Him. and it says in the Bible faith is believing in the things not seen!! Yes I don’t see God but I’ve seen answered prayers I have been healed I have experienced peace and love unexplainable. God is so good.
TBat87 Kun oldin
+Solo V "there is evidence where Jesus has walked" The argument isn't whether there was a man named Jesus (Yeshua) who walked on Earth. The argument is whether a divine Jesus walked the earth. I don't deny that a human Jesus walked the Earth. What I do contend is that there is zero evidence to support that a divine Jesus walked the Earth ... a Jesus who was born of a virgin, walked on water, rose from the dead, and was/is the son of Yahweh. The existence of a human Jesus doesn't make the claims of Christianity true, you would have to provide evidence that a divine Jesus existed in order to claim Christianity is true.

+TBat87 Im not here to ague all I will say is God is a supernatural God. And even if the science hasn't proved all the points there is evidence where Jesus has walked and many more check out Kent Hovind check out the book more than just a carpenter.
TBat87 2 kun oldin
"Science actually can backup evidence of the Bible and Jesus." Give specific examples of this. The bible claims that the earth existed before the sun and stars, that all birds existed before all land animals, that there was a first man created out of dirt and a first woman created out of a rib bone, that there was a global flood survived by a 600 year old man and 2 of every animal, and that all the world languages originated at the Tower of Babel. Are any of these stories historically true and scientifically accurate? No, and that doesn't even begin to cover the amount of historical and scientific falsehoods presented in the bible. "Also how can you put so much faith into science even though it’s based of human mind which is not perfect." Because of empirical evidence, the scientific method, and the process of peer review. Perhaps you should go back to grade school and learn about these things again.

The religious people are so much more self reflective. At 3:38 everyone should have said yes because no humanbeing has a beliefsystem that explains everything. The religious people were intelligent enough to understand that, the atheist were too stubborn.

I think this isn't really a great topic because there's lots of middle ground between most religions and science. The things in religion that people think are anti-science, at least the religions I know, are not accepted as "fact" the way many people believe it is, and they're not necessarily contradictory. Creationism and evolution theory can exist in the same mind without ruining the universe, I promise.

Whats astonishing is the fact that people dont understand or do not want to understand what DNA is. You can prove a Designer with DNA alone. The logistics would make the Designer God. DNA is a code. CODES ONLY COME FROM INTELLIGENCE. PERIOD. Evolution has two pillars. Natural Selection (which is a provable fact) AND Random Mutation (which has been mathematically PROVEN TO BE IMPOSSIBLE). Evolution CANNOT work with only 1 of its 2 PILLARS. Atheists are WILLINGLFULLY IGNORANT. They are intellectually DISHONEST and arrogant morons.

First of all RIP to the parents of the Buddhist minister. All I want to say is if u r religious u don't need to argue against science. Like if u believe a higher power created the universe all scientists r doing is exploring ur god's or goddess's creation. It is a good thing actually to see n discover how complicated n mind boggling the universe is.

Cryptonian you do understand there are prophecies that have come to pass right. I can defiantly argue with facts beyond faith and stories.

See we can do this all day an talk semantics. End of the day we could argue all eternity and we would probably walk away without accomplishing a single thing.
Lyrsavivor 5 kun oldin
No matter what you believe or what religion you follow, I would hope that everyone can acknowledge that science is not a belief or religion or even a mindset, moreso a thing or a tool. For example, say that you see a a flower in your backyard and you wonder why more flowers arent growing in your frontyard so you'll conduct an experiment taking in different elements such as water, light, soil, etc. and through that you find that specific flowers need specific conditions. Thats what science is, you conducted a science experiment, all it is is studying literally anything and testing parts of it and asking questions and trying to find an explanation for what you see. Science just deals with the physical world and observations and experiments with that to find explanations for maybe why majority of plants are green or why this animal does this weird thing or whatever. Religion is a whole separate deal, that deals with more philosophical questions and not what we already have here. So know that you can be a practicing scientist in whatever field and also go to church for whatever religion, but please dont ever think that science is optional, education is important and all science is is studying a field and educating yourself.

I work with and know some brilliant scientists. I vividly remember a conversation I had with an astrobiologist where they said "if we consider the simulation theory or multiverse theory, we cannot rule out the hypothesis of god". They stated how ignorant it is to say "there is no God" like it's a factual statement. Do I believe the Bible? In truth? No. That was written by man. But who's to say there isn't some ultra intelligent being/creator out there? It could be a life form in which we cannot even begin to comprehend. If we consider the other theories we have, we cannot rule out the God hypothesis. We can't rule out that an intelligent being created the universe and us. Those who say god doesn't e it's as if it's a factual statement, are not intelligent individuals. They're foolish. They're fools.
