Thread Name: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
Subject: RE: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
Bugger me! I pop back to Mudcat for a quick look and there are even more interminable religion v atheism threads. I have to wonder if Jack's been talking to his god and been instructed to bombard the site with his ramblings.
Anyway, one thing that does interest me is MtheGM's comments about Rupert Sheldrake. I haven't read the book he refers to but my copy of 'The Rebirth of Nature' is much-thumbed, annotated and dog-eared. I find his theory of morphic resonance et al compelling and thought-provoking. Along with the writings of Sir Alastair Hardy, John Gribben, Peter Russell, Paul Devereux, James Lovelock, Roger Penrose and many, many other exceptional thinkers, it has a place in my own eclectic, ever-changing and perpetually open-minded approach to life, religion and everything. I even keep an open mind about the idea of a single, all-powerful deity but, after over 50 years of searching, I still haven't found anything to convince me. But, of course, if there was certainty, faith would be redundant, so Jack is welcome to his interminable postings ? I, however, won't be spending too much time reading them.
