Father Rohr: how to have a relationship with God in the modern day and how religious people can be respected for having a “mystic worldview” in a scientific world.
There were several things I had a hard time swallowing when watching this talk by Richard Rohr as he visited Google to speak on his new book.
First of all, simply the fact it was a talk organized by Google, one of the biggest big-tech companies that recently quietly discarded their motto, "Don't be evil" and who is harvesting your personal date selling it for targeted advertising to the highest bidder.
Secondly, Richard Rohr's reference to evolution and the age of the Universe, was not easy for me to swallow, probably due to my fundamental and dualistic mindsets :-)
However there was so much good in what he was saying I decided to put my prejudice aside and try to take in the good points, then I got a lot out of it.
I have said it before, you don't have agree with everything I publish, but if there are things worth considering I go for it. People can make up their own mind about what to take in and what to let go of.
As with this YouTube talk. I thought it was worth watching. I hope you enjoy it!
