    It’s Always Demons? (Testing the Spirits)

    MYS188: When unexplained phenomena arise, many Christians often leap to the explanation of demons being responsible or they warn that certain activities can open you up to demons. Jimmy Akin and Dom Bettinelli discuss the accuracy of these claims, how we can really find out when demons are involved, and what can go wrong when we incorrectly think it’s demons.

    Dinos in heaven, Jesus’ DNA, lying angels, rebooted universe, marrying aliens? & More Weird Questions

    MYS187: It’s New Year’s Eve, so Cy Kellett of Catholic Answers Live is asking Jimmy Akin weird questions from listeners, including are there dinosaurs in heaven, can angels lie, are we in a rebooted universe, whether aliens and humans could marry, and much more.

    Questions Covered:

    * 01:29 – From a five-year-old: Will there be dinosaurs in heaven?
    * 02:47 – In Tobit the angel Raphael says that he is their kinsman. In Tobit 5:13 he claims to be the son of a man named Hananiah. Is he lying? It never says that he eats, wouldn’t Tobiah notice that or is just assumed that he does?
    * 06:09 – Could we be living in a rebooted universe? What if in Revelation, John saw a previous universe in which Jesus was born for the first time by Mary as in Revelation 12 and then once he was swept up to God, that rebooted our universe so that in the universe we live in Jesus has existed since the beginning. All the while, the previous universe existed as an alternative timeline which John saw destroyed and wrote it down in Revelation?
    * 10:42 – Why is it in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus is clothed with a robe of scarlet then In Mark and John it is purple?
    * 18:26 – On a previous show, you spoke before on the question of whether marriage would be possible between humans and aliens. The answer hinged on whether procreation would be possible. What if procreation were possible but the resulting offspring were sterile (like mules)? Would that affect the possibility of marriage?
    * 21:08 – Is raising your arm telekinesis? Is telekinesis limited to moving our own body? How do pure spirits move objects?
    * 27:32 – If we happen to colonize Mars in the future would we have to update the Missal to replace “Earth” with “Mars”?
    * 30:40 – There are loving Catholics that state the CCC supports a vegan diet. Their reasoning? The CCC forbids us causing animals needless suffering, they say we don’t need to eat them to live, therefore killing them for food is causing them needless suffering. Your thoughts?
    * 37:42 – What are the differences in blessings? I bless myself and my children. How effective is that vs. a blessing done by a priest?
    * 41:23 – What happened to Christ’s foreskin from His circumcision, clipped fingernails, hair He shed, or anything else he left behind containing His DNA? We know that His humanity is sacred, but on a practical level, how far do we take that in our understanding of it?

    Christmas on other planets, when Christmas ends, from St. Nick to Santa, 12 days of Christmas code? . . . & Weird Questions

    Christmas on other planets, when Christmas ends, from St. Nick to Santa, 12 days of Christmas code? . . . & Weird Questions

    MYS186: It’s Christmas, so Cy Kellett of Catholic Answers Live is asking Jimmy Akin Christmas weird questions from listeners, including how we would celebrate Christmas on other planets; when Christmas ends; how we got from St. Nick to Santa; and whether the 12 days of Christmas is a secret code; and more.

    Questions covered:

    * 01:46 – If Mary didn’t suffer any labor and giving-birth pain, how exactly did Jesus get out of the womb?
    * 08:48 – What constitutes a “Christmas movie”? Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?
    * 12:48 – When does Christmas end? The 26th? New Year’s? After the octave? Twelfth Night? Epiphany? The Presentation?
    * 15:44 – Is there any record anywhere of the midwives (if any) who attended Mary?
    * 22:22 – If other planets were colonized, and we had to create a whole new calendar, how would we adjust Christmas?
    * 26:30 – How did the character of Santa Claus evolve and what is its historical connection (if any) to St. Nicholas?
    * 33:35 – Might Santa be a Time Lord? 1. Would Santa need to travel faster than lightspeed to deliver gifts to all nice Christians on Christmas Eve? If so, could that explain his longevity and his increase in mass over the centuries? 2. Does he use shrinking technology to fit through chimneys, teleportation technology to beam into houses, or some sort of quantum phase technology to render himself and his bag of presents temporarily insubstantial to pass through walls? 3. Could he use said technology to conquer the Martians?
    * 50:35 – I know the so-called secret meanings of the 12 days of Christmas and what they are purported to symbolize, but what about the number of days themselves? I was told that if you add up all the days mentioned in each verse that you get on gift for every day of the year until next Christmas. Is that true?

Staalland ,

Still a great show!

A very nice blend of faith and reason. Especially the Dyatlov pass episode was amazing. I do love creepy stories like that but i also love it when creepy mysterious stuff can have logical explanations. Not every topic is immediately attractive to me. But somehow you still make every episode fascinating.
Over a year now! Keep it going!
