Religion Without Science is Blind
Science has dramatically improved the material well-being of mankind. It has changed our world and our lives, and we have much to be grateful for. In its early days, science helped free people from harmful superstitions and unfounded religious dogma. Sadly, conventional science became dogmatic. It is based on reductionist materialism. It postulates that everything is material, and whatever is not material cannot exist. This has never been proven to be true. This dogma has persisted despite its rejection by some of the leading scientists of the Twentieth Century, including Albert Einstein:
“Science without religion is lame: religion without science is blind.”
—Albert Einstein, Nobel Prize winner for physics 1921
“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force. Anybody who has been seriously engaged in scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance to the gates of the temple of science are written the words: Ye must have faith.”
—Max Planck (1858–1947) Founder of Quantum Physics, Nobel Prize – Physics, 1918
Fortunately, in the past forty years or so, there has been a vast increase of scientific evidence about the nature of reality that is not limited to matter. Some of this evidence is related to the fields of quantum physics and brain science. These findings provide significant evidence of nonlocal consciousness and survival of consciousness after the death of the body.
Mystics throughout the ages have pointed to man’s underlying eternal nature. One such mystic was the poet Khalil Gibran:
“For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.”
—Khalil Gibran, author of The Prophet, third best-selling poet of all time behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu
Evidence of the Afterlife
The majority of people in the world are religious, and almost all religions in the U.S. teach of an afterlife that their members are expected to take on faith. Most of these religions teach that we live only one lifetime, followed by an eternity in heaven or hell. That teaching is a myth. There is abundant evidence of the afterlife, but the vast body of this evidence contradicts the teaching of one lifetime followed by an eternity in heaven or hell. Rather, the evidence points to each unit of consciousness, commonly known as a soul, living many lifetimes with interludes in the afterlife.
You are on a hero’s journey, simultaneously existing in both space and time in the form of a human body and beyond space and time as consciousness. The inner search for the answers to our existence is at the very essence of human growth and evolution. You can be complacent, hoping that your beliefs are accurate, or you can decide to explore and discover the nature of reality for yourself. What you are truly seeking cannot be found in material wealth, stature, or possessions. The science of consciousness can be your doorway to awakening. Open-mindedness is essential for this exploration:
“Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.”
—Steve Jobs, former chairman, CEO and co-founder of Apple, Inc.
Science-Based Awakening offers you a wealth of resources for exploring the scientific evidence of our existence beyond the limits of matter. There are seven topics for you to explore:
- Science and Consciousness
- Energy Healing
- Near-Death Experience
- Out-of-Body Experiences
- Death and Dying
For each topic, I provide references to select books and videos that I have carefully researched. The material for each category includes an introduction, a list of books with links to authors’ websites and videos, and links to associated organizations. The information on this site can lead you to knowledge, and this knowledge can lead you to the priceless wisdom of the spiritual heart. The spiritual heart comprehends both infinity and form. Your own heart is your gateway to this comprehension.
Seven Dimensions of Intelligence
Seven dimensions of intelligence resonate outwardly from the spiritual center of your heart—unity, love, life, respect, honesty, justice, and kindness. Through these dimensions or aspects of consciousness, the heart can restore wholeness. These dimensions may be seen as sacred principles of living, and as they are mastered, they are revealed to be aspects of one’s own Being.
May your journey lead you to a state of love, peace, fulfillment, gratitude, joy, and bliss in this lifetime.
