A Different Way to Think About Miracles

I believe that many people who reject certain religions have a simple belief, based upon current scientific knowledge and the environment we live in, that miracles just don’t occur. You can’t violate the laws of nature. People don’t heal the sick with the touch of their hand and they don’t rise from the dead. Honestly, I’m a man of science so I really have a hard time disagreeing, until I think logically, spiritually, and do a little homework. In the book I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist, the authors propose that the greatest miracle to ever occur...

The reason I bring up the topic of science is because far too many people trying to improve their physical health focus heavily on scientific realm and not the metaphysical. What drives us to WANT to improve our physique, energy levels, eat the apple vs the donut (most of the time, not all of the time ; ) – it’s our mindset, willpower, beliefs, sense of purpose. I find it puzzling and almost arrogant that some people believe science can explain everything and that the material world contains all of the answers for things like health improvement, for example.  I...

Placebo and Nocebo

How cool is the Placebo effect? For those who are not familiar, the phenomenon known as the placebo effect in medicine is when a fake drug or treatment elicits a physical response in a patient, simply because they BELIEVED it was an actual drug that could produce actual physical changes in their body.   Placebos have been shown to work both ways.  If a patient receives a placebo treatment and thinks it will make them better, they get better.  Conversely, if a patient receives a treatment that may make them worse, they get worse (sometimes called nocebo effect). This...
