Developer of the Rational Theism Ken Wear explains the events that forced him to accept that conventional religion beliefs are not adequate. He discusses how he is drawn to Rational Theism, which does embrace deity. He tells members of the Theosophical Society that the central point of his conviction is that the body houses a spirit that has had both prior and the prospect of future existence in a physical body.

Ken Wear developed a belief system called Rational Theism. Rational Theism embraces deity, and acceptance of deity is fundamental to this conviction. His central point is that the body houses a spirit that has had both prior and the prospect of future existence in a physical body. Wear's training was in physics and engineering, and he worked for years in space-related research. A broken marriage and heart attack led him to apply the same clear thinking that he used in his career to all aspects of his life. His motive for writing is the hope that his traumas and the research that followed will provide others with the information his family background did not provide him. He is now over 70 and wants to share what he knows.
