Do we become adults at 18? 21? Puberty? At Parenthood? When we work our first job? When we start wiping our own butt?

What is an adult?

What is a child? Other than someone under the age of legal consent and all of that.  I mean we have legal designations for these things, trials, science experiments and other patterns for generalizing when one is an adult, but what if being an adult is a state of being?  What if adult is not really a useful term given what we know about ourselves at this point in history?

Today I will be joined by my special guest Brian Shapiro as we discuss these things.  What is an adult? What is free will? How does natural consequence play a role, and can you be an adult without free will?

It all plays into living Your Intended Life. These shows with Brian are always fun and entertaining.  Feel free to call in and join us.  Today, June 10th, on The Intended Life Radio.
