An investigation into the materialist madness of Darwinian views of evolution. Further investigation of modern quantum and evolutionary-developmental discoveries shows the Darwinian evolutionary worldview is incorrect, and a non-theistic Intelligent Design operating from the quantum level is correct. This leads to the exploration of the view that the universe is a self-perceiving organism employing sentient beings as its perceiving agents.
This volume presents the results of a pioneering anthropological documentation of unknown traditions of sacred music performed by marginalized musicians and priest-musicians of the rural Bora Sambar region of India's western Odisha. The book is based on ethnographic research conducted from 2002 to 2010, presenting the first documentation of a unique sound culture. Local music is analyzed as an indigenous theory, and thus becomes a crucial medium of religion, culture, and politics. (Series: SoundCultureStudies / KlangKulturStudien - Vol. 8 )
Rabbi on the Ganges: A Jewish-Hindu Encounter is the first work to engage the new terrain of Hindu-Jewish religious encounter. The book offers understanding into points of contact between the two religions of Hinduism and Judaism. Providing an important comparative account, the work illuminates key ideas and practices within the traditions, surfacing commonalities between the jnana and Torah study, karmakanda and Jewish ritual, and between the different Hindu philosophic schools and Jewish thought and mysticism, along with meditation and the life of prayer and Kabbalah and creating dialogue around ritual, mediation, worship, and dietary restrictions. The goal of the book is not only to unfold the content of these faith traditions but also to create a religious encounter marked by mutual and reciprocal understanding and openness.
