We go through the history of these two frenemies, covering Galileo, Darwin, the four horsemen of atheism, the complexity thesis vs the conflict thesis, and current wedge issues. Then we discuss how we learned about evolution, why science isn't valued in Christianity and vice versa, and if we gotta keep em separated or let them lovingly intertwine. Also, Kayte wants to know who hurt Richard Dawkins.

We had Mason on to discuss what happens after you deconstruct. Are we re-building? Are we throwing this thing out? Are we letting someone else clean up the mess on Aisle 3? 
 
We discuss the hardest stage of the process, whether or not the resurrection was real, what helped Mason in his journey, and why he's never considered walking away from Christianity altogether.
