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.
Throughout history, humans have always had extraordinary experiences we often called miracles—events that fill us with wonder and bafflement. The problem is that under our current scientific worldview, miracles are not supposed to occur because they constitute a violation of the laws of nature.
But suppose that what we call miracles actually reveal the true nature of the physical world, which is not limited by what science now classifies as the “laws of nature.” In his new book, The Smile of the Universe: Miracles in an Age of Disbelief, this week’s guest, Dr. Michael Grosso, concludes that miracles are facts of the natural world that point to something super-natural. These accounts take us beyond conventional religion and science to explore the outer reaches of human potential.
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.
