Description

Exploring the intersection of art, science and religion, "Seeking Truth: Living with Doubt" considers that all three are paths to the same end. Attacking not only the unyielding smugness of evolutionary biologists but also the uncompromising surety of Fundamentalist figureheads (in both the Christian and Islamic faiths), author Steven Fortney and Marshall Onellion take the reader on a path that disavows all such certainties and considers the thought-provoking question; What does it mean to live with doubt? Far from leaving questions unanswered, instead they tackle such questions as proof versus faith, the impossibility of absolute understanding, and how a combination of art, science and religion can lead to a transcendence of that which we cannot know. In so doing, they expose the dangers of "certainty," be it in religion, science or any other ideology that claims to offer absolute truth. "Seeking Truth: Living with Doubt" has been endorsed by theologians (Arthur Dewey, Professor of Theology, Xavier University [a Jesuit University], Ohio, USA), biologists (Clark Lindgren, Grinnell College, Iowa, USA), and physicists (Narendra Kumar, Director of the Raman Research Institute, Bangalore, India), by Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists. It will appeal to those interested in the two channels of truth seeking: transcencence (also called religion) and the physical world (also called science). The book interconnects many science topics, including cosmology, neurobiology and evolution, to religion and the arts. It also proposes some unorthodox ideas, including the equivalence of the Christian concept of Grace and the Buddhist concept of Emptiness, and that what a religious devout person does in prayer is identical to what a writer does during the creative process.
