    #770 Finding The Face of the Hero with Naturalist Bernie Taylor

    #770 Finding The Face of the Hero with Naturalist Bernie Taylor

    Bernie Taylor is an independent naturalist, thought leader and author whose research explores the mythological connections and biological knowledge among prehistoric, indigenous and ancient peoples. His works in these areas include Biological Time (2004) and Before Orion: Finding the Face of the Hero (2017). Before Orion is premised on Joseph’s Campbell’s hero's journey monomyth that is at the core of stories worldwide among indigenous peoples, the ancients, and our modern society. Before Orion explores a deeper root for this monomyth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds through Paleolithic cave art from 40,000 years ago. Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us. Taylor addresses a profound archaeological elephant in the room by opening up an uncharted place in our history, which points to the cultural ancestors of mankind in western North Africa. Before Orion will change the idea of who you think you are. Bernie is widely interviewed on podcasts and speaks at popular conferences and academic symposiums across social and physical science disciplines.

Thinking Allowed

David and his wide variety of knowledgeable guests have done an excellent job at building a platform on which everyone is equally entitled to their own opinions. If you’re looking for a place where you're encouraged to use your own mind to learn and grow intellectually then you’ve come to the right place. Thanks for putting out such a superb show David- keep up the great work!

Poor interviewer, great guests

The guests are intelligent, well educated and come with a wealth of experience and wisdom. A lot of times I seek out their books or websites for additional information in their field based on the interview. However, the host is incredibly disrespectful to the guests by interrupting them to share his thoughts and opinions rather than listening (and allowing his listeners to hear) to these experts. There are other great podcasts along similar lines that I choose going forward. This is just too annoying to listen to any longer.
