Are We Just Our Brains?

Nov 11, 2020

What exactly is a human being? Are we primates, machines, souls confined in a body, or something more? In this episode of Ask Away that originally aired last fall, RZIM Itinerant Speaker Sharon Dirckx joins Vince and Jo to talk about her faith journey and how God and science work together to give us a complete picture of our identity.

Question Asked in This Episode:
“If we are just our brains and nothing more, what are the implications?”
