Science and philosophy gave him something he never thought he’d find… respect for religion |312| by Alex Tsakiris | Apr 26 | Consciousness Science Please Share Share on Twitter Dr. Bernardo Kastrup explores his new found respect for religious myths in, More Than Allegory. photo by: Bernardo Kastrup Today we welcome Dr. Bernard Kastrup back to skeptiko to talk about his new book, More Than Allegory. In the book, Kastrup explores the potential for religious myths to propel us beyond the ordinary: Dr. Bernardo Kastrup: Authentic religious myths can bring us beyond the constraints of this [reality]. That’s what they’re pointing to. They’re pointing at something beyond linear logic; beyond space and time; beyond the constraints that we willingly adopt in our ordinary relationship with reality. We shouldn’t give those constraints up but I think we shouldn’t lose, willingly, our only umbilical connection to something that goes beyond that either.
