Beyond science and religion, there is more to the story of life and the cosmos.
We’ll tackle the big questions of why we are here and where the world may be heading. From theologians and scientists to those in the school of New Thought, we’ll address the individual circumstances that led to the formation of their theories and views. Challenging common beliefs and scientific findings, host Philip Mereton talks with experts and authors to find a new worldview of hope.

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion – A New on the Evolution and Purpose of Life
Dec 10, 2017
The standard interpretation of the meaning and purpose of life is that we are mortal creatures who have evolved from bacteria through the mindless, directionless process of Darwinian evolution. According to Darwin's leading modern-day advocate, Richard Dawkins, we are "survival machines – robot vehicles blindly programmed to preserve the selfish molecules known as genes." The standard interpretation carries the day and is accepted by almost all orthodox biologists. But this fact does not mean the interpretation is true. One way to find out is to compare it to other perspectives, many of which may seem radical and "out-there." On this show, Philip interviews one of the world's most original thinkers and best-selling author, Tim Freke, about his new book, Soul Story: Evolution and the Purpose of Life (https://www.amazon.com/Soul-Story-Evolution-Purpose-Life/dp/1780289847). To Tim Freke, Darwin's theory, if not wrong, is incomplete: evolution does not stop with the physical body, but continues to the realization that we are an emerging spiritual being in a never-ending process of creativity. So you may just go along with Darwin and move on; or you might consider a different, and more uplifting perspective. Listen in as Philip and Tim discuss what Tim calls the new worldview of "emergent spirituality."
