I don’t know about you but I feel that we are a pretty “heady” society. We tend to “think” a lot and worry a lot too. We tend to only trust reason and logic. Is there any kind of thinking beside reason and logic? Are there other ways of knowing? What would they be? What do you think about reason vs experience or book smart vs street smart? Does reason point a way to God? Can God be understood in terms of reason? Is spirituality hindered or aided by reason? Why can some people know things “beyond their age” but others don’t seem to know anything? What about intuition, channeling, ghost writing, dreams, premonitions, visions, intuition or talking to spirits? Are those legit ways of knowing? How about Ishvarpranidahna -the yogic teacher within- what is that and what is the idea on how it works? Also, what about the ancient ideas of Sophia and the wisdom tradition- is it arrived at thru thinking? This and a bunch of other stuff to be curious about and skeptical of at today's Theology on Tap. Theology on Tap meets every Thursday from 5:30-7 at Henry’s Bar upstairs on 8th street. Come late and leave early, no problem. Hope to see you there.
