There is a lot of research going on today. Some of the research has a true purpose, some of it does not. For example scientists are saying that within the next 5 to 10 years they will be able to produce a dinosaur. Why do we need dinosaurs? What can making a dinosaur do to advance civilization? Where is the benefit in making dinosaurs? Are we planning on making them the new weapon of mass destruction? they would definitely be biological in nature.
There is value in cancer research and learning how to improve our daily lives. I believe in space exploration but the need is becoming more real on a daily basis as we continue to destroy this planet. We need to enjoy the beauty of our world and find ways to make it better.
People are a great natural resource but they have not learned to be good care givers of the planet. You don't have to be rich to be a good caretaker all you have to do is take care of the planet on a daily basis.
Science is a tool which can be used for good or evil. Science for the sake of science is dangerous especially when we ignore the creator.
We need to reign in science that seems to be running amok and not let them go unchecked.

In this episode, I will discuss biblical truths related to science and phycology. I will discuss how the Holy Spirit can live in a body of someone who is mentally impared and how God himself can help those with brain diseases and mental dificiencies through the mysteries found in the bible. I will discuss how an ancient text when applied today can have a profound effect on the healing of the thinking process. I will not disqualify medicine, or prove it to be false, in fact I will support the methods and means of 21st century medicine as well as what the bible has to offer those suffering from a mental disorder.
