Spectrums Project: Liberal Christians and Conservative Christians — Part 1


Applying a multidisciplinary framework informed by the biological sciences, cognitive sciences, social sciences, and religious studies, the Spectrums Project investigates and interprets religious belief along the conservative-liberal spectrum in attempts to expand understanding-based empathy. We acknowledge that religious faith – including a lack of faith — is one of the most important motivating factors in human life. By crafting a new framework and research instrument for understanding these motivations, the project offers a clear-eyed, evidence-based way to understand some of our most cherished and challenging beliefs.
