The Secular Perspective
Yes, You CAN Pray in School (Anthony)

Are our public schools really secular? Is it illegal to pray in school? Of course not. Listen as Anthony breaks down the silly notion that prayer and God are absent from America's public schools; and why he's okay with that.

Answering Creationist Questions (Anthony)

This episode consists of Anthony answering questions from a link that was sent to him. The link was an article from Buzzfeed.com of a series of pictures. The pictures were questions and comments that had been written down by attendants of the debate on Creationism between Bill Nye and Ken Ham on February 4th, 2014. Anthony is presenting these answers from the perspective of a layman.

This is the original article: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/messages-from-creationists-to-people-who-believe-in-evolutio

This is the YouTube video of the debate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6kgvhG3AkI

13. “Does metamorphosis help support evolution?” (sic)

 

14. “If Evolution is a Theory (like creationism or the Bible) why then is Evolution thought as fact.” (sic)
