It has been three long years since the launch of ASP Stuff Radio, but what does that matter? Three is merely a number and time is illusory. Nevertheless, Alberotle, Steveocrates and Paulato will freely continue, as long as they’re able, their quest for intriguing wide-ranging stuff that will make your head metaphorically spin! And in this Halloween special they discuss whether we (human beings) can make room for free will in light of an omniscient non-spooky Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost. If the all-knowing Holy Ghost knows the future, then isn’t your so-called freedom to make trivial and substantial choices superfluous? If that doesn’t trigger your mental cramps, then consider the trickery behind the lottery, the next topic of discussion. Is it not “a kind of regressive tax on low-income earners”, or a play on false hopes if not a terrible low-risk “investment vehicle”? Finally, ASP critically evaluate a recent study on the “tricky evolutionary roots of sharing”. Such alleged behavior is claimed to be performed by bonobos, the closet relatives to humans.
All of that stuff, and more: a fun Halloween version of 20 questions that the trio of minds play to conclude their 3rd anniversary show!
