Anthon St. Maarten will be joining philosopher and radio talk show host Philip Mereton on July 9, 2012 on his show Conversations Beyond Science & Religion on Web Talk Radio. They will talk about some of the big questions of why we are here and where the world may be heading.
We are conditioned to look at the world as if we are physical beings; spiritual experiences become outliers filled with mystery: how did life arise from the dust; consciousness from the brain; or spirit from the heavens? Are we separate creatures forever disconnected from each other? In his book The Phenomenon of Man, French philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said that we have it backwards: we are really spiritual beings having a physical experience.
On this show, Anthon and Philip will proceed as if Chardin was right, to explore the consequences for all of us if we are actually spiritual beings on a physical journey. The on-demand podcast is available for listening or download at WebTalkRadio.net
