“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

Albert Einstein

About

BelievAble Talks seeks to offer a platform for open and honest dialogue on matters pertaining to spirituality, religion and science. Questions and doubt are welcome! Our belief is that the beauty of rational and life-enriching thought is found in the process of inquiry and the search for objective truth.

In our materials we strive to evaluate and give a fair hearing to varying (sometimes opposing) views by engaging some of the latest theories and research from relevant fields of study. Through the methods of inquiry employed we may not always ascertain certainties, but rather consider plausible alternatives.

BEYOND the burden of proof

IN THIS EPISODE:

What shapes our convictions? We live in a pluralistic world, marked by diversity, where traditional ideas spawn dissonant tones; where globalisation has disenfranchised ideologies; where the Internet has compressed distance and time; and where access to information is virtually instant. In this episode, we focus on some of the latest research on the psychology of faith, about which Lawrence Krauss claims that “we are wired to believe and need to fight against it”, while Christopher Hitchens exasperatedly affirms that “religion is ineradicable!”.

BELIEVABLE Conversations

IN THIS EPISODE:

This is the first interview in the series BelievAble Conversations. Dan’s guest: author Clifford Goldstein. Listen to how Cliff first became aware of the importance of truth in a pizza parlour, his reasons for finding the logic of material existence outside of the material, and why true faith comes through revelation. (Below are the links to Cliff’s article “The Logic of Existence” and his book “Baptizing the Devil.”)
