Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Sohrab Ahmari, the author of “The Unbroken Thread” about how public health authorities used scientism instead of science to push through their preferred policies, how logic and reason led him from atheism to evidence for God, and how the decline of religion has led to the rise of the secular religion of social justice. In this clip Sohrab explains the difference between religion and spirituality and the importance of having rituals be communal. He shares the story of Edith and Victor Turner who studied anthropology and focused on tribal rituals. Upon returning from their research they became Catholics after gaining a new appreciation for the importance of religious rituals and traditions. Sohrab warns that if God is not in the public square, new gods and perhaps a new religion will take its place. He discusses how social justice has gone through this transition by becoming a sort of progressive religion.
Understanding spirituality is difficult in today’s fast paced world. Does the world of theology still offer something to a more secular modern world? Are there lessons to learn from a more spiritual path that can help us make sense of issues like morality? Or is spirituality best left to the past according to some modern day atheists and skeptics? What does it even mean to be spiritual in an enlightened world? Hear from a wide variety of guests on the benefits, struggles, and problems with religion with this playlist:
