"Orthodoxy," a series of essays by Gilbert Keith Chesterton. First published in 1908. Read by David "Grizzly" Smith. "The only possible excuse for this book is that it is an answer to a challenge. Even a bad shot is dignified when he accepts a duel." This is how Chesterton explains "Orthodoxy," the sequel to Heretics. "I have attempted in a vague and personal way, in a set of mental pictures rather than in a series of deductions, to state the philosophy in which I have come to believe. I will not call it my philosophy; for I did not make it. God and humanity made it; and it made me." This is a book about Everything, about the reasons for the entire Universe and the existance of Humanity. Andit's kinda funny. except for the serious parts and the sad parts. It's about all of life, and human life includes humor, drama and sadness, so that's all in the book, too. The chapters look longer than they are, each being roughly an hour -- and no, it wouldn't have worked to break them in half. I've found them a very quick listen. Hope you enjoy this book. If you liked Heretics, you'll like Orthodoxy, because it's Chesterton. And if you do, please share it, please comment about it, rate it, blog and podcast and Tweet about it. Oh, and let me know. :) The music is "The Rule," from Kevin MacLeod at http// Thanks!

Are UFOs Real? - T.L. Keller Join Now to Follow

Are UFOs Real? Over the last 60 years we have heard reports of unidentified flying objects . . . UFOs. We have heard from skeptics that they are all either imaginary, hallucinations, hoaxes or strange, but natural aerial phenomenon. On the opposite side of the fence, believers say that of all observed UFOs some 5% or so are real, solid objects. What is the reality of this? In this series, we will hear from both believers and skeptics alike to help our listeners determine: Are UFOs Real? And if they are real, what will be the impact on Earth, our technology, our environment and our society?
