Evolution & Religion
Reverend Michael Dowd on the Campbell Conversations
Evolution has been at the front lines of some of our most heated political and cultural conflicts. Speaking with Grant Reeher, Reverend Michael Dowd, the author of "Thank God for Evolution," has staked his claim on the proposition that evolution and science need to be married to our religion- and he's an evangelist about that idea.
Dowd engages in a a lively discussion about religion and science, the concept of "big history," and how best to bring people into what he calls " the right relation to reality" and into the essential feelings of trust, gratitude, and inspiration.
