Bitcoin Fixes This #24: Listener Questions with George Mekhail

We answered listener questions about our book!

@lehmann_adam Is bitcoin the one world currency used in the end times?

@mklad How much of an influence do you think subjectivism had on creating the fiat conditions of today? Do you think bitcoin rejects postmodernism’s subjective understanding of truth and is in some ways a return to an objective standard? (“my truth” vs “the Truth”)

@VikingKing447 How might Bitcoin adoption assist with getting funds to missionaries around the world? High wire fees is a waste to kingdom fund to further the gospel.

@CtlAltBtc In the context of the bible how does followership gel with the strong bitcoin notions of self-sovereignty, liberty, freedom of access and self agency?

@IANUSMANU Although the text starts from a Judeo-Christian premise on debt, how can the increase in the use of bitcoin in non-Western societies whose philosophical foundations are alien to that tradition be explained?

@HODLing_PNG Some (Cason for example) say Bitcoin / Satoshi are like a 2nd coming or are messianic, Max Keiser suggests Bitcoin may be a direct gift from god here to save us all. curious what you think...could BTC be the new JC? Sorry have not read the book so maybe a dumb question

@ParkerMuse As this book seems to tie in elements of faith: What is the proper attitude to have towards BTC or crypto in general? I ask this because it is evident that many are overleveraged emotionally and mentally, and I've seen too many tweets mimicking religious rhetoric.
