The Unifying Potential of a God that is Real in the Scientific Universe (Free Webinar)
The scientific revolution of today is bringing us into harmony more rapidly than ever before. We have before us the possibility of a coherent and exciting Big Picture that lets us bring together our full selves – our emotions, our spiritual values, our growing scientific and historical knowledge, our origin story, and our sense of place in the universe. There is a radical way to re-envision God that supports, rather than thwarts, this harmony and might well unify humanity. Based on this Big Picture, I propose eight principles of a planetary-scale morality. There is no better time to do this than now. Today’s simultaneous sabotage of our country by our own government, widespread social upheaval, the global pandemic, a pending economic crash, have converged to shock the system as never before. Drastic change on a large scale is looking to many people not only possible but essential. Can we leave petty squabbles behind us? Can we envision a planetary Big Picture within which we can build a common future?
