The planet's hope and salvation lies in the adoption of revolutionary new knowledge being revealed at the frontiers of science.
Deism is the belief that nature and God are one and the same thing. If you study nature, you're getting insights about God.
For science, the end of the evolution struggle is simply represented by 'survival.' As for the means to that end, apparently anything goes. Darwinism leaves humanity without a moral compass.
Crises are harbingers of evolution.
If we could get your subconscious mind to agree with your conscious mind about being happy, that's when your positive thoughts work.
Epigenetics doesn't change the genetic code, it changes how that's read. Perfectly normal genes can result in cancer or death. Vice-versa, in the right environment, mutant genes won't be expressed. Genes are equivalent to blueprints; epigenetics is the contractor. They change the assembly, the structure.
Science ignores the spiritual realm because it is not amenable to scientific analysis. As importantly, the predictive success of Newtonian theory, emphasizing the primacy of a physical Universe, made the existence of spirit and God an extraneous hypothesis that offered no explanatory principles needed by science.
