Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: Has Science Found the Youth Pill?

Some say we are only sure about two things: death and taxes. Others dream of the Fountain of Youth. Modern science is starting to make inroads to delaying the aging process, but the government and the big pharmaceutical companies don’t seem all that interested in funding these efforts. Guest, David Stipp, a leading authority on the science of aging and author of a recent cover story in Scientific American titled, “The Pathway of Youth,” joins host Philip Mereton in a conversation about the scientific breakthroughs in anti-aging treatments, the secrets to staying younger longer, and the obstacles we face in finding the youth pill.

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: Are we at the Brink of a New Consciousness?

Hundreds of books are published every year about consciousness and the mind, and there is much talk about a “new” consciousness rising up among us. But what is this new consciousness and where is it taking us? On this show, host Philip Mereton attempts to answer these questions and more with guest, Miriam Knight, founder of the New Consciousness Review, and one of the leading voices on the subject. Maybe we are indeed at the brink of new consciousness that is rising fast enough for us to experience it in our lifetimes.

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: How to QuantumThink

Quantum theory, the idea that our observations determine reality, may apply not only to the world outside of us but also to the way we think. Who better to guide us through these cutting-edge ideas than our guest, Dianne Collins, www.diannecollins.com, author of “Do you QuantumThink? New Thinking that will Rock your World,” who joins our host Philip Mereton in a groundbreaking discussion of how quantum theory may be more than a theory of the physical world; it may also hold the key to improving the lives we all lead. The old worldview of classical physics said that a mechanical world running on its own power operates completely outside of us; quantum theory says the old way is wrong: we are in some mysterious way connected to the world. In quantum theory we leap to new energy states. Might these same principles apply to thinking? Are we ready for a quantum leap in thought?

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: What Can Our Finely-Tuned Universe Tell us About God?

Not only car engines can be finely tuned. It turns out that the closer scientists look at the inner workings of the cosmos, the more they find that our own universe is precisely tuned to support life. Books such as “Just Six Numbers” (Martin Rees), “The Goldilocks Enigma” (Paul Davies), and “The Grand Design” (Stephen Hawking & Leonard Mlodinow), highlight the special features of our world — forces, constants, and ratios — that, if even slightly altered, would make life impossible. In this show, we talk with well-known astrophysicist, Bernard Haisch, author of the best-selling books, The God Theory and the Purpose-Driven Universe (http://www.thegodtheory.com) to evaluate three options for explaining the source of this fine-tuning: chance; the existence of 10500 other universes (the “multiverse”)” or God. Tune in to see which option seems to make the most sense. The answer this astrophysicist gives may come as a surprise.

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: How to Live Your Dream Life

Are we “robot vehicles” (Richard Dawkins) or “immortal spiritual beings?” On this show we address this question in a conversation with spiritual teacher Michael Mackintosh (www.livinginmagic.com) who reveals how an amazing out-of-body experience propelled him on a journey from a hopeless predicament in Cambridge, England to live his current dream life in Hawaii. Find out how changing your perspective can set you on the course for dreaming bigger dreams, and even making them come true.

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: The Quantum Enigma

On this show, Professor Bruce Rosenblum of the University of California -Santa Cruz, and co-author of the best-selling book, Quantum Enigma -Physics Encounters Consciousness,(www.quantumenigma.com), talks with host Philip Mereton (www.heavenattheendofscience.com) about the origin and meaning of science’s most heralded theory, quantum mechanics. On this show the listener will learn that the world is not made of hard, massy stuff, but something much stranger — a mathematical equation that needs consciousness to become something. The quantum enigma remains an intriguing mystery still awaiting a solution.

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: Does Consciousness Create the Universe?

Modern science teaches that consciousness arose from matter, mindless stuff. But can the opposite be true? Perhaps consciousness is at the root of experience. On this show we talk with Richard Smoley, one the world’s foremost authorities on mystical philosophy, and author of The Dice Game of Shiva: How Consciousness Creates the Universe. Needless to say, Mr. Smoley provides a unique perspective on the role of consciousness in the make-up of our world.

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: The God Particle and Pictures of God

Modern scientists are looking for the God particle to fill out their standard model of the cosmos. Christians are waiting for the return of their own God to complete their vision of a new world. For both scientists and Christians the missing piece to the puzzle remains elusive. But are these quests really that different? Tampa Bay minister Louis Kaloger joins us to discuss this topic and others on today’s show.
