For part of this podcast, we go outside Christianity and consider an idea from cutting-edge science. For all the hoopla surrounding modern science, there are many questions science cannot answer. These are questions about the “why?” in addition to questions about the “how?” They are some of the deepest questions of life, questions people really want answers to. But science doesn’t have those answers. And so, it ignores the questions. As a result, science has brought us no closer to answers to the deepest questions of life than people were two or three thousand years ago.
In this podcast, we consider a theory that does not ignore the deepest questions of life–the theory of Biocentrism. This theory is directly opposite one of the main assumptions of modern science–that life began from the physical, that the physical came first and then life developed from the physical elements. This is one of the unquestioned assumptions on which modern science is based.
Biocentrism, though, says that life was first, and that the physical develops from life. A fascinating concept to explore!
Then, we look at some of the things Jesus said in the Gospels. We find that they fit very well with the idea of Biocentrism.
So what do we do with that?
