Beyond Belief – how we find meaning with or without religion


Whether your faith lies with one true God, the cosmic bureaucracy or the church of the flying spaghetti monster, your beliefs shape your identity. Despite plummeting attendance at traditional church services, around two thirds of Aussies either believe in God, or some other higher power. Social researcher, Hugh Mackay argues that both atheists and theists are believers – since the existence of God can neither be proven nor disproven. His book ‘Beyond Belief  – How we find meaning , with or without religion’ –  is an ode to agnosticism, to doubt and uncertainty, and an exploration of how we find spiritual fulfillment in a secular age.
