A conflict has raged between Science and Religion for centuries. This conflict has undermined religious beliefs without providing an alternative basis for ethics and meaning for our lives. This conflict can and must be resolved. A Common Path provides a resolution while developing answers to the most important questions regarding our existence, e.g. how was the universe created, does God exist and how should we live our lives.

Though relying heavily on what science can tell us in developing these answers, the author explains how knowledge should not and cannot be divided into separate categories such as “scientific” or “religious” but must be viewed as a cohesive whole. Knowledge should only be categorized on the basis of means of acquisition and degree of certainty. Revisions to past approaches of both science and religion can result in A Common Path for all future knowledge and can lead to knowledge vital for encouraging and supporting a much-needed new spirituality. Science must eliminate its reductionistic, materialistic and deterministic biases which are based upon unproven assumptions. Religion must reconcile revelation with recognized facts and promote true spirituality in place of doctrinal adherence.

Borrowing from our legal system such concepts as differing burdens of proof and circumstantial evidence, the author offers substantial evidence to the reader supporting his answers to life’s most mysterious and compelling questions. Even if the reader does not accept as proven all of the answers presented in A Common Path, he or she will acquire vital tools for crafting his or her own verdict investing his or her life with meaning and direction.
