On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (01/14/20), Hank brings up an example of “fake news” in the science field. A recent article from Time Magazine titled “NASA May Have Found the Goldilocks Planet of Goldilocks Planets: TOI 700 d” by Jeffrey Kluger reports on a claim made by NASA that they have discovered an Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of a hospitable star. But as Hank points out, the article itself seems to contradict the title. In the article, we read that the planet orbits a red dwarf star, and is tidally locked—meaning that the same face of the planet remains facing the sun at all times. Both of these issues would prevent such a planet from being suitable for life. Hank goes over these issues and more and explains why we truly live on a privileged planet.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- I feel ripped between Protestantism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Roman Catholicism and I’m not sure which one to stick with. Can you advise me?
- I am having trouble trusting God; I read about His love, but I don’t feel it personally. Do you have any wisdom on the nature of God as it relates to me?
