On Merging Science and Creationism
Several weeks ago, someone asked me if I’d ever studied atheism. Over my 25 years of researching human consciousness, science and spiritual growth, I had to say the topic hadn’t crossed my radar. Apart from having read The Origin, where Dan Brown pits creationism against science, which was interesting (though not convincing) I’ve never had the slightest inclination to explore the subject.
