|Religious philosophy Summary of Course|
Dr Patricia Wormeck THD, ND
I do believe after taking this course, that I have found my spiritual place in the world.
After completing my Doctorate in Theology, I came to realization that I cannot be a part
Of any organized religion. This course helped me define my position in the world of
Immediately in the course the definition for religious philosophy was a study in non bias,
or non personal agendas or opinions. Most written material, books, courses, etc. have
agendas that the author wishes to express. I might include possible include the books
of the bible, but that would be my opinion. The point of the course is that we do not
want to study in that way. Studying facts and points of view of various religions is
acceptable. The basis for the whys and wherefores of religion organizations and why
people need religion is discussed, as definitions of words such as precepts and concepts.
I was very interested in the discussion of the makeup of the brain that determines
whether a person has spiritual tendencies or not. Apparently the more serotonin
receptors a person has, the less spiritual they tend to be. The serotonin seems to
given them comfort. With this definition, I must have fewer receptors and therefore
need the comfort of spirituality.
The above definition is not the only reason for spirituality. Maybe God has programed
us to be spiritual to refine ourselves for out afterlives, and maybe not. The love of ideas
and what men think can also be motivators.
I loved this course, and it has opened a few field for me. Thanks so much.
