Wander into Myths

In this week’s podcast I talk about the personal myths we create to comfort us and why these stories need to be examined when new information becomes available.

I discuss some of our foundational beliefs that are coming under scrutiny including Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, which was one of the theories that led us to do away with a need for God as an explantion of our origin. But did we throw the baby out with the bath water? Do we still need an intelligent designer in order to put the evolutionary process in motion? Can we be our own moral arbiter, or do we need an external moral being to pass judgement on us?

By looking through the lens of both Christian and Buddhist teachings, I ask if subjective truth and morality is enough to keep us stable during times of need? Or do we need objective truths to stand on in order to make sense of the world and our place in it?
