Narrative Wars 11: Humans - Advanced Breed of Apes? Or Something Divine?
Did we evolve from some breed of advanced hominid? Or were we plucked from the dirt by a divine being and made into the people we are today?
The origin of mankind is one of the most hotly debated issues of our time (or any, for that matter). So in this episode I attempt to solve all of those quandaries in a mere 30 minutes or less. Kidding, of course. Or am I....
Some chief questions to consider in this episode are: who is winning the culture on Evolution vs. Creationism? Who has the better narrative? Which is more appealing to you? And why? A lot of it comes down to story. How effective is the story being told from either side and how effective are the ones listening to these arguments. As always, a worldview can be at the center of the conversation.
Hope you enjoy.
