Most scientists do not believe in God and some state that science has replaced religion as the most important philosophy of life in the 21st century. This has led some to wonder how they can relate to their spiritual needs and still support the scientific approach to life on earth. Many would-be atheists and agnostics yearn for a connection to the eternal, but they can no longer believe in the external Gods of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism to fulfill that need. When asked if he believed in God, Einstein replied that he believed in Spinoza's God. Join Dr. Kent Bottles in an exploration of the theology of Spinoza which advocates for science, reason, and a belief in the eternal that is centered around a God who is the eternal earth itself. If it works for Einstein, it just might work for you too.
