About our ministries
Hello and welcome to the web pages of Evolutionary Metaphysics, a spiritual ministry based in Austin, Texas that tries to bridge the gap between scientific fact and faith in a higher power. We are a newly founded ministry, started by a group of college professors based at the University of Texas, Austin in a effort to provide a safe harbor to those who are scientifically inclined, but still try to keep to their spiritual faith, in a higher power, the afterlife, or whatever else you might be holding onto. Evolutionary Metaphysics is a mix of serious discussion and friendly meetings where members can come, meet similarly minded people, bring their kids, we have facilities with educational toys, tabletop games, gaming consoles and even a couple of high quality drones that kids are crazy about these day. Everyone is welcome to join our ministry, become a member and participate in a civilized discussion, spiritual discovery and companionship of similarly minded people.
Our ministries have only recently been founded with the hopes of calming the passions that both sides of the coin have been flaring up over the years. We're talking of course about the ever fiery science vs. religion debate. Our very own state of Texas has been a hotbed of various extreme positions, some of which we agree, others we don't agree at all. In essence most of Evolutionary Metaphysics membership are agnostic theists, that is, we have some sort of belief in a higher power, but we don't know for sure that this higher power exists. Likewise we reject organized religion almost in its entirety, and we focus more on spirituality and the propagation of the scientific method. That is why our facilities, instead of having religious paraphernalia, we have things like educational toys and remote controlled drones. This way our members, especially younger ones, will learn to harbor scientific inquiry. I highly recommend you not to be a passive reader, but please go out and do your own research on drones in education - how are they used and what are benefits of their usage. As always, I recommend you to stay low on budget if you're just getting into this, so this "Best drones under $100" guide by Drones Globe is a good starting point. Their article can be found here.
Our activities include the usual, holding gatherings for the membership, discussion forums for the public and the occasional casual picnics for pretty much everyone who is interested in the questions of science and faith. Join us if science is an important part of your life, but you are slowly losing your faith because of it, and you would like to have your faith restored for whatever reason.
