Spirituality & Science

Show Archive
Date: Monday - June 2, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Dr. George Vaillant, Billy Gibbons, Lionel Fanthorpe

Appearing during the middle two hours, Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Dr. George Vaillant discussed his work on the scientific effects of positive emotions, as well as his new book Spiritual Evolution. Humankind's sense of spirituality is genetically wired in and has evolved over time for its survival value, he detailed. There is more empathy in our genes than what we learn in Sunday school training, he commented.

It has only been in the last 15 years that science has been able to measure specific emotions in the brain, showing how different parts of the brain light up, such as in the limbic system. For instance, he noted that when subjects were given money to donate to their favorite charity, the same part of their brains always lit up.

The last hour featured Open Lines, with callers sharing their stories of faith.

Bo Diddley's Death

Appearing briefly at the start of the show, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top commented on the passing of Bo Diddley.

The Chase Vault

First hour guest, author Lionel Fanthorpe spoke about the Chase Vault in Barbados. In the burial vault, coffins of deceased family members were found moved around and in disarray, even though the vault had been sealed with a marble slab, he recounted.
