Questioning Spirituality proves the logical path for ending the secular bias of science in matters of faith.
A pragmatic case for the rational viability of a spiritual belief in a higher power. [Taylor] makes a compelling case that the scientific worldview--one that sees humans as “meat machines”--is inconsistent with people’s experiences of themselves and is not nearly as rationally superior as it is so often presented. This alone makes the author’s compact consideration a worthwhile read. A philosophically astute challenge to the rational supremacy of science over its spiritual rivals.

Provocative Enlightenment is an exciting show with a unique presentation offering a novel and hard-hitting approach to those formally soft questions that everyone is interested in, such as "Who am I?” “What does this all mean?” “How do I maximize my life experience?”
Eldon has interviewed a large variety of guests, including American talk show host Leeza Gibbons, actress Lindsay Wagner, Congressman Tim Ryan, renowned psychologist Stanley Krippner, biologist Rupert Sheldrake, and famous medium James Van Praagh. In his attempt to unearth the truth, Eldon is unafraid to ask the difficult questions and refuses to accept the easy answers!
