HAMPTON BAYS, N.Y. (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
In his new book, “Power in the Blood: Biology as Key to Joining Philosophy, Faith and Science” (published by iUniverse), Richard Porter shares a fresh perspective as he examines the connections between science and spirituality, integrating the latest findings in science with the ancient and traditional knowledge of religion by exploring complicated biological realities drawn from his extensive research.
“Power in the Blood” delves into the topics of biology, evolution and the metaphysical aspect of nature, he offers ideas for the pursuit of inquisitive journeys into self-awareness, human consciousness, and as Porter explains, the truth. The author carefully scrutinizes and provides personal insight into bio-existentialism, the cosmos, mind fields and X-factors, the magnum mysterium, post-Darwinian evolution and axiomatic authenticity.
Written for a broad audience with adventurous and open minds, “Power in the Blood” presents a unique exploration of biological evolution and provides fresh insight into what it means to be human.
“The book is relevant today because it combines a hard look at cutting-edge issues in science,” Porter explains, “chiefly the many outstanding mysteries of biology and evolution, with discussion of timeless questions that have haunted the human mind from time immemorial, and are no less vital today toward human understanding than ever in the past.”
