Show Notes:

Al Franken and the Gropers:

- we are seeing the end of an era

- we have moved away from the dance and are not entering the reckoning

- we are trying to say we can have decency survive in an indecent environment

- stupidity never works

- God's standard is the only sustainable standard

Darwin's Black Box:

- argument from irreducible complexity

- this world was crafted

- in all forms of life we have irreducibly complex systems

Aischrotes:

- means filthiness, mentioned in Ephesians 5:4 as a sin of speech

- Paul prohibits filthiness, foolish talking, and course jesting

- so aischrotes seems here to mean dirty speech, obscene jokes, and so on

- the Christian urge to refine our speech is a godly one
