Overview

Reconciling scientific results with sacred texts brings people together.

Today's evolution debate divides people and stirs up fears and hatred.

Can we approach the question of a creation or an accident impartially? The most vocal and visible activists in the current evolution debate are extremists who use all evidence merely to support their own convictions. Thus a complete picture of evolution is not revealed to the public.

The Soul of Nature attempts to utilize only widely accepted scientific views, and interpretations of spiritual texts based on broad human experience. This invites us all to do our own thinking and encourages humility. As a result of intensive research modern scientific views are changing rapidly. There can be no doubt our extraordinary scientific progress requires us to update our understanding of everything, including human spirituality.
If humanity and all of life is merely the result of an accident we need to develop values and attitudes that correspond to that truth. If we are the result of some kind of creation, then we need to understand our connection with creation and our role in it. The human need to understand things culminates in the need to comprehend who we are and where we come from. Whether we destroy ourselves or make a better world depends on how we see our role in this universe.
To propose that science and tradition oppose each other on this issue is to say one is lying and the other is telling the truth. The current debate over evolution could damage both science and spirituality.
The Soul of Nature points the way to a reconciling approach.
