Questions Covered: 02:05 – Suppose a modern lay Catholic (baptized, confirmed, etc.) were transported through time and space to the year 5 BC, Jerusalem. Assuming he/she retains his/her knowledge and beliefs from the 21st century AD and is aware that he/she has arrived in a time before the Incarnation has taken place, in what way would this Catholic be obligated to worship God? Would he/she need to live as a Jew under the Mosaic law, given that the New Covenant has not yet been established in their “present” timeline, or would he/she be required to live according to Catholic practices to the best of their ability? Would he/she be morally obligated to be a sort of prophet, proclaiming the coming Lord; or perhaps be obligated not to, lest they affect salvation history? 06:11 – I’m curious whether Satan can “bless” people and/or things? By “bless” I mean supernaturally enhance in the manner requested by those seeking the “blessing”. 12:05 – If someone is trapped in a time loop like in Groundhog Day or Edge of tomorrow, is it still a sin to commit suicide in order to reset the time loop? If you already have been trapped for several weeks then it would probably feel annoying to wait out the entire loop if you mess something up. 14:53 – I write Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fanfiction, mostly action/adventure stories. I am currently outlining a story where the TMNT meet a Catholic Apologist. I have modeled her after Mr. Akin in both personality and intellect. In my story, the apologist is explaining the Catholic idea of the soul to the TMNT. One of the things that has hung me up a little is that I believe all sensitive and rational souls are created immediately upon conception. The TMNT started out as ordinary turtles, so they were given sensitive souls the moment they were created, before they were even born. However, now that they have mutated, they have rational souls. One of the characters questions whether the turtles’ sensitive, animal souls died and a new, rational soul was installed in them when they mutated, or if their souls were changed when they mutated? Initially I had the idea that God “upgraded” their sensitive souls to rational souls upon their mutation, but a friend of mine suggested that maybe they were conceived with rational souls, but as it took 15 years for them to develop from babies to teenagers, they simply didn’t express their rational souls until they were old enough/mutated enough to talk. I’m curious as to what Mr. Akin would say and would be grateful for his perspective. 21:45 – I have a few questions for you: 1. If angels are spiritual, eternal beings existing outside of time, how can they be created in time if eternity is outside of it? 2. When we die, our souls survive our mortal bodies. If our souls are eternal, how can we be created in time if eternity is outside of it? 3. How did God create something out of nothing if it is against the nature of nothing to be something? 31:50 – What is “Burning Man” really about? It seems to get a lot of media attention each year. My stepdaughter and her husband have both apostatized from the church, and went a few years back. They have regional “burns” as well that they attend. The stories they seem happy to tell people seem very disturbing. Almost satanic. Certainly evil. Nothing at all like what I get from Mr. Google or the media. Who is “The Burning Man? Do you have any insights on any of this? 34:02 – I have a weird question (I think). I know in the early 20th century or late 19th century catholic theologians mentioned the desirability to baptize not-yet-born babies in the womb as long as it was safe and possible. My question is, why isn’t this done right now even without medical intervention? It seems to me that the form (I now baptize…) the matter (water, after all the baby is…
