    Even though I'm not a Catholic, I'm glad that we have Christian representatives like Stephen Colbert on popular television who can discuss faith and evidence intelligently. Not all Christians are the mindless stereotype people think about. There is a middle ground.

      This is much better than the Tyson Report where he engaged in identity politics all the time and nobody could read their viewpoint in the sarcasm.

                          Stephan needs to look into his own philosophy regarding his political stances. Pretty dark but everyone finds it funny. Go within and find the truth not the herd of the media. They don’t have your interest at heart albeit people think they do.

                            Stephen is at a much higher level of consciousness, truely the only sadness is not to be a saint. Bravo Stephen.

                              NDT would be better if he had slightly less ego, he interrupts and does other off putting behaviors that make him less credible to the uninformed and less likeable to the informed.

                                he also thinks what he has to say is so important and interesting that he doesn't even let the person HES SUPPOSED TO BE INTERVIEWING finish thoughts or sentences.

                                The problem seems to be that he thinks he knows things that he doesn't know (yes I am replying to my own comment, it's a thread, look it up)

                                    While I agree that Christianity, does not wholly rely on the same TYPE of evidence that the physical sciences provide, it does need evidence to be considered a rational belief. And you shouldn't be afraid of that; scripture never preaches blind faith! After all, if we believe Christ created EVERYTHING, then there SHOULD be evidence! While you can't examine God (metaphysical) under a microscope (physical instrument), you can make philosophical claims based off of scientific discovery. Remember, the natural sciences ARE NOT the only academic disciplines! Study the history, look at the archeology, examine the philosophy, and make sure its claims don't conflict with scientific discovery. But above all Christianity is about relationship. If you really care about knowing, ask Him to have relationship with you.
                                    Stephen, you are 100% correct in you're Roman 1:20 understanding: we can see God's through His mark on His creation. However, don't stop there! God wants us to worship Him with our hearts, souls, and MINDS! I'm praying for you, brother!

                                      A century ago the world was not even begun recovering from a great war, when the Flu pandemic wiped out millions of people (more than the war itself). We all "survived". We live in the shadow of mass events.

                                          I personally describe Stephen as a Liberal Catholic - because he does disagree with his own church's teachings on homosexuality, contraception, abortion rights - Stephen totally at odds with the Roman Catholic Church on these issues. Stephen may go to Mass, but he is on the liberal wing of that church. People like Michael Voris, the ultra-right wing Catholics hate Stephen Colbert because of this (and others).

                                                As a catholic, Stephen Colbert has just proven himself more effective than all Televangelists.

                                                Stephen Colbert is really intelligent.
                                                At least his interviews with selected guest have always substance.
                                                In contrast that Kimmel guy askasks the most stupidest questions all the time, not intellectual about his show.

                                                          I beg you my fellow Americans please read this article. "Beyond Reason: Mental Retardation: An Overview." It's Trump! It explains why he does everything he does. Many retarded people look normal. I didn't know that. Did you? And many try to hide that they are retarded like Trump. And many don't have morals because they don't understand what morals are. It's why Trump cheats on his wives like he's doing now. And I think it's with that older intern who tried to take the microphone from Acosta when Sarah quit taking the daily press briefing. Remember? And if you watch it you see when Acosta is talking to Trump, Trump puts his head down (like a little boy who doesn't know what to answer) and that woman jumped up and went over to Acosta and tried to take the mic. And then you can tell it hit her that she shouldn't have done that and she put her hand over her mouth and stared at Trump. His wife had left the White House. So I'd bet that woman took her place in Trump's bed and that she's the one who writes his tweets. He simply can't write them himself. And it's why he can't use a computer. It's too complicated for him! It's the reason when he was first in office that he couldn't believe that he could call any leader of any country he wanted to and they'd have to talk to him. It's also why he doesn't understand that on the other side of the world people are sleeping when he's awake so he'd wake up people and not care at all. And then he'd ask them what the population of their country was! They were stunned that the President of the United States asked them about their country like that. It's because he can't read very many words and never reads books or documents. And Putin told him in Vietnam (the draft dodger was in Viet Cong country on OUR sacred Veteran's Day. His first one. That's Putin laughing and spitting on the 68,806 American military who were killed in Vietnam doing their duty when Trump refused and cheated saying he had bone spurs. His Father did that. Got a tenant of his who was a Doctor to lie and say Donald had bone spurs) to pretend to read documents and to give his 82 year old ex-KGB boss the job of security for OUR embassy in Moscow!!! At 1.2 million dollars and to my knowledge that old man and his son are still guarding the bugged American Embassy. Trump gave a Communist and a vicious criminal the job of guarding an American Embassy! To me that not only an abuse of his office but it's treason. Giving an enemy the job of security? An 85 years old man getting tax payers money like that? What would you call it? Look it up. Rex Tillerson did that on Trump's orders unless it changed. I know that our Senator Daines and other male Senators went there at Trump's request. Probably to get more orders from Putin! And he's so simple that he actually believes Putin is his friend. :( A psychopath whose murdered at least eight Russian journalists and that was two and a half years ago. Putin has muzzled Russia like Kim Jong un and his family has done for decades. This article explains everything. Songs

Science is shaking off its nerdy, socially awkward image and becoming more and more 'cool' thanks to people like him. He will be remembered as one of the great men of history who helped changed the path of humanity.
