Conscious Bridge Radio

Is humanity headed towards extinction?  If so, then what can we do about it?  These topics and more are discussed in this episode of Conscious Bridge Radio.

Listen as host Mark Gilbert interviews bestselling author, evolutionary eco-theologian and pro-future evangelist Michael Dowd about his latest project, a 17 minute YouTube video entitled Reality’s Rules: Ten Commandments to Avoid Extinction.

In describing his video, Dowd says it is about “What Reality is telling us, through evidence, about how we must now collectively think and act if we hope to spare our grandchildren from hell and spare ourselves their condemnation.”

Through this fascinating conversation, we will explore new ways of bringing science and religion together by considering what we experience as our primary reality to be the same as “God’s nature”.  We will consider how the Earth’s carrying capacity for humanity is really a type of “grace limit”.  And we will consider the role that each of us play by the shifting of our consciousness and changes in our behavior that can help humanity navigate coming ecological challenges.

Along the way, the conversation touches on theology, ecology, income inequality and our current political environment.  You will also learn what a “apocal-optimistic” is!

Dowd is the author of the best-selling book Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World, endorsed by 6 Nobel Prize-winning scientists, noted skeptics, and religious leaders.
