Eastern Religion for Western Gnostics By Michael Faust
eBook (ePub): $5.79
Is religion compatible with science? "The Tao of Physics" by Fritjof Capra famously attempted to draw parallels between modern physics and Eastern mysticism. What Capra conspicuously... More > avoided was any comparison between the Abrahamic religions and physics. These religions of faith have no scientific component. The West has, in the last few hundred years, been the engine of scientific progress, yet the dominant religions of the West are anti-scientific. This has led to a damaging dichotomy in the Western mind. Doesn’t the West have any enlightenment religions that might allow science and religion to find common ground? This book compares and contrasts the Gnostic religion of Illumination - the religion of the ancient secret society known as the Illuminati - with the main Eastern religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism, and suggests that all four religions can be brought together under one banner – Enlightenment – that may stand in united opposition to Abrahamism: knowledge against faith.< Less

The Tao of Religion is a “source book” dealing with religious transcendence...the “paradox” is beyond the secular and the religious, the finite and the infinite, and falls... More > very much into Eastern and Western concepts of transcendence. The paradoxes serve to highlight the inherent limitations of our mind, and mark off in some way the boundaries of the unknown territory where God dwells. It is not my intent to reveal a set of truths about God, as much as it is an attempt to convey through prose, poetry, quotations, parables and figures of mythological importance the intuition of reality that touches the heart, and burns and stirs the soul. The book evolved from a religious revelation which I had in 1984, and is an anguished, forthright attempt to come to grips with the religious issues which I found hostile and unfriendly and contained in daily life. It is both a spiritual affirmation of my faith and an encouragement to those who wish to follow a path that may lead them to spiritual fulfillment.< Less

More > Belgium – 20 August 1947 in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre near Brussels) was a Belgian archaeologist and historian, a philologist and student of epigraphy, who brought these often isolated specialties to bear on the syncretic mystery religions of Late Antiquity, notably Mithraism. Cumont was a graduate of the University of Ghent (PhD, 1887). After receiving royal travelling fellowships, he undertook archaeology in Pontus and Armenia (published in 1906) and in Syria, but he is best known for his studies on the impact of Eastern mystery religions, particularly Mithraism, on the Roman Empire. Cumont's international credentials were brilliant, but his public circumspection was not enough. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Cumont< Less
