Ralph LewisRalph Lewis, MD, joins Eldon for a discussion setting theistic beliefs against the atheistic perspective. In his newest book, Finding Purpose in a Godless World, Lewis argues that religious beliefs are not necessary, indeed often even foolish, to find true meaning and purpose in life. He uses scientific findings to suggest how mind emerges from brain, how religious notions often disappoint believers, how evolution explains life itself, and more.
Dr. Lewis obtained his medical degree in 1990 at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, where he grew up. He completed specialty training in psychiatry at the University of Toronto in 1996, followed by a two year fellowship in neuroimaging research and a Master of Science in Neuroscience, both at the University of Toronto. He has held his present staff physician appointment at Sunnybrook since 1998.
