Tonight, D.W. Lafferty will be speaking with Brett Salkeld, Archdiocesan Theologian for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina. We’re going to discuss some of the philosophical and theological problems with conspiracy theory, as well as how Catholic creationism can function as a conspiracy theory in itself.
