The Connection Is Human Nature

Author Interview
Robert DePaolo Author Interview

From Evolution to God: An Integration of Faith Science is an exploration of the universe, human existence, nature, and contemporary life from the unique perspectives of religion and science. What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book? 

The most important idea is that there is a connection between God and science and that connection is human nature. Try as we might, we seem to need hierarchical figures to show us how to get along with one another, survive psychologically and understand how the world works. It isn’t a choice, but a mandate created by nature through the massive expansion of the human brain and its unavoidable tendency to ask questions and seek resolution.

What is a common misconception you feel people have about believing in science and still having faith in God?

That they are exclusive, that ‘belief” in one implies disbelief in the other. Yet when all is said and done the goals of both are the same. Healing, the need for psychological comfort in a tumultuous world, and the need to explain how the universe works – these are all aspects of both scientific and religious inquiry, and always will be. 

What do you What is one thing readers take away from your book?

Whether in reference to recent ideas in theoretical physics (particularly the idea of entanglement – which suggests we cannot be objective observers or controllers, but rather are integrated into the natural world) or in reference to various religious texts, we are forced to be humble; not separate from the world, or superior to other creatures, but merely a thread albeit a very significant one) in nature’s overall tapestry.

From Evolution to God provides insight into how the development of religious systems paralleled the evolution and social development of human cognition and why, in the truest sense, the idea of God as a transcendent figure lies within us.
