Mooney knows that his book is different from most other texts like it in that it proposes that neither science nor religion give the full answer to humankind’s search for meaning.

In his new book "Religionless Spirituality: Paradigm for a Global Spirituality" (published by AuthorHouse) author Patrick Mooney warns readers not to let the lure of scientific materialism remove them from the human sense of wonder.

"Materialism does not answer the hunger of the human spirit," Mooney says. "Our civilization has become more competitive and stress filled than ever. Serenity and peace are rarely found because materialistic science has offered but a bromide in the form of consumerism. In the process the planet becomes ever more exploited and raped. As human beings, we have forgotten that we are stewards rather than masters of the earth; we no longer ponder the truth of our interconnection and interrelationship with all life. Arrogantly, the scientific world tells us that it alone will solve all the problems facing humankind. Our successes becomes ever more our atrocities. We need another answer."

Mooney knows that his book is different from most other texts like it in that it proposes that neither science nor religion give the full answer to humankind’s search for meaning.
