Kresta in the Afternoon – October 23, 2007 – Hour 1

  • Description:

    First Topic - Parenting With Grace

    Dr. Greg Popcak is, and has been for years, a leader spreading the message of a Catholic plan for marriage. Through his books, radio program, Institute, and telephone counseling, he has helped and healed thousands of family situations. We join Greg in Steunebville to talk marriage, family, culture and kids

    Second Topic - A Meaningful World: Why the Arts and Sciences Matter

    Materialist reductionism tries to reduce everything to mere matter and energy, and defines everything strictly according to its smallest parts--cells, atoms, quarks. On this view, a human being is just an accidental assemblage of subatomic particles, nothing more. Materialist reductionism leads to nihilism, the view that life is pointless. It sucks the meaning out of life, flattens reality like a steamroller. Ben Wiker counters this by showing that the world is meaning-full, a work of genius far beyond any work of human genius. In doing so, we're trying to help restore our culture's sense of the richness of everyday reality.

    Third Topic - Catholic Bioethics Today

    Recently, governmental authorities have approved, in principle, the production of human / animal hybrids for research. We look at the moral quagmire being entered into across the pond with Dr. Patrick Lee, director of the Bioethics Institute at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
