Where Science & Spirituality Meet
In this episode we’re stepping waaaay way back to explore the ultimate question: ‘what is god?’ But rather than look at specific religions, we’re going to come at this by looking at ideas which have grappled with both science AND spirituality. In part one, we’ll explore ancient philosophies that are often credited with forming the foundations of modern belief systems. And in part two, we’ll take a look at modern theories of god that try to exist at the intersections of science and spirituality.
