About This Show

When it comes to unexplained phenomena, it is just that. Unexplained. We try to approach this from as many different ways as possible, and to throw out the assumptions that have driven research for a very long time. These strange experiences people have, no matter what you want to label or catagorize them as, are real in some way. They have been reported throughout history and across cultures. If nothing else, they are a very Human experience. None of the theories we have may even come close to divining what we are actually experiencing, if they did, we would have some answers. We do not know what Reality is, what life or death are, or truly why we are here. We do know that our senses filter much out, and our memories do not work like we think they do. New approaches are needed if we are ever to make any progress at all in understanding what we are interacting with. Some of that comes from understanding ourselves, and some of that comes from having a truly open mind in confronting those things that defy explanation. We need new eyes, perspectives, and better questions. That is the goal of Where Did the Road Go? To go places that have not been tread before, and explore new things from new angles.

Alex Tsakiris on Why Evil Matters - Dec 12, 2020

During a discussion on the massacres at Babi Yar during World War II, a philosophy professor made the following remark: the last words of the Lord’s Prayer are “deliver us from evil,” not “destroy evil,” because evil is within us. To destroy evil, we would have to destroy ourselves.

I would have liked to offer that observation to Seriah and his guest, author Alex Tsakiris, whose latest book is “Why Evil Matters: How Science and Religion Fumbled a Big One.” Tsakiris is the creator of Skeptiko, podcasts that explore the science of human consciousness and spirituality. The name is derived from the philosopher Skeptikos, who sought “inquiry to perpetuate doubt.”

As Seriah considers himself “a true skeptic, one who questions openly,” you would expect these two to agree on most points. In this interview, Alex and Seriah are well-matched sparring partners, covering topics such as: moral imperatives, dharma, evil as an objective reality or separate entity, near death experiences, reincarnation, past-life regression, lucid dreaming, hypnosis, satanism, and ritual abuse. A most provocative interview with no easy answers. - Recap by Patricia W.
