“Do I Need a Spiritual Teacher?”

Om Shanti. Walk with Mooji Baba ‘Do I Need a Spiritual Teacher?’ 06/08/2017 There are many people, of course, there are many forms of expression, many spiritual disciplines, religions, and so on. And I come across varied practices, of course. And most people, I would say 95 percent, say they are actually practising for enlightenment…

Astrophysics and Religion

You’d think, from a distance, that astrophysics and religion would have very little to say to each other. Astrophysicists care about the composition of planets, they tend to be fiercely rational, very uninterested in teaching us how to live and not ones to raise big moral questions. Religious types, for their part, are passionate about…

What Comes After Religion

Fewer and fewer people believe nowadays. It’s possible that in a generation, there simply won’t be religion across Europe and large sections of north America, Australia and Asia. That ‘s not necessarily a problem. But it’s worth thinking about why people made up religion in the first place and what we’re doing with the needs…

Love is a Religious Problem

So there’s a great line that says that sex is a disappointing answer to life’s riddle and that love is ultimately a religious problem. What we hope to get with love is what we failed to get with God. Once we dispensed with God, or once Nietzsche told us that God is dead, we needed…

Now, the cosmological argument is an argument for the existence of God, and like most arguments for[br]the existence of God, it gets its name…

How Deep Space Nine Actually Gets Religious Tolerance Right

All right, enough screwing around. Most recently in this series I looked at Star Trek: Voyager, which is my least favorite show in the franchise. Here’s the cast having their photo taken at JC Penney, by the way. So now I think it’s only fair that turn my attention to my favorite Star Trek show….

Biblical Series III: God and the Hierarchy of Authority

I’m really looking forward to this lecture, not like I wasn’t looking forward to the other ones, but the stories that I want to cover tonight, one of the things that just absolutely staggers me about them, especially the story of Cain and Abel (which I hope to get to) is, like, it’s so short….
