Hosted by Philip Comella
Beyond science and religion, there is more to the story of life and the cosmos.
We’ll tackle the big questions of why we are here and where the world may be heading. From theologians and scientists to those in the school of New Thought, we’ll address the individual circumstances that led to the formation of their theories and views. Challenging common beliefs and scientific findings, host Philip Comella talks with experts and authors to find a new worldview of hope.
The Source with a capital S is a neutral, “new age” term referring to the ground of Being. But it has a richer meaning than the Big Bang of modern cosmology or Darwin’s primordial swamp out of which life supposedly arose. This Source organizes life, gives it coherence, and injects it with meaning. If all things came from the Source, then it would seem helpful if we “went home” and reconnected with it. In fact, this might be the source of what we know as a religious experience. In his forthcoming book, Reconnecting to the Source: The New Science of Spiritual Experience, How it Can Change You, and How it Can Transform the World, Ervin Laszlo, twice-nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, author of 90 books, and a pioneer of the “new age,” presents the case for why we must move to a new paradigm the goes beyond science’s current confining materialistic perspective. In this show, Philip explores Dr. Laszlo’s half-century quest to understand the world and what we are doing here.
Philip Comella is a lawyer, philosopher, and author of The Heaven at the End of Science: An Argument for a New Worldview of Hope. This book, which started as a college essay in 1974, is the culmination of thirty-five years of research on the big questions of existence. Blending philosophy, science, religion and the paranormal, the book argues that it is time to replace the materialistic model of modern science with a framework that better accounts for the full range of human experience. Mr. Comella is a frequent radio guest, writer, and speaker on the connection between science and religion. He lives with his wife and daughter in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
