"The Future of God" by Deepak Chopra

Postby Carrie » Mon Mar 13, 2017 9:25 am

I haven't read this book, but I was curious about what Chopra's "passionate" take on God vs. Richard Dawkins "militant" atheism would be (according to the description on Amazon).

Anybody read this book? If so, what are your thoughts?

I have only read War of the World Views written by Chopra and Mlodinow ... yes a very odd combination.
It is a series of essays and replies ... interesting ... I was 99 % for Mlodinow.

The moniker militant atheism seems to have stuck ... but when we use this moniker we should consider the number death threats he has received versus number of times Dawkins has suggested someone should be killed.

And here is Dawkins describing himself as an agnostic
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religio ... exist.html

Dawkins speaks out against the more negative aspects of religions ... especially when it touches on his beloved evolution and science in general.
I am sorry, I am not likely to read that militant new ageist. ;)
But I do recommend the above book it is an amicable exchange of world views ... on completely the opposite ends of the spectrum

I've never read a book by one of the populist atheist authors, nor one by Chopra. War of the World Views sounds somewhat promising at least for a scan.
You can call me Mark or whatever.
