Issue Eight

The Search is over

Preventing the looming water wars

Issue 8: The search is over: Here at Guru Magazine, we’ve never been ones to shy away from controversy, or from tackling some of the ‘prickly’ topics in life.

So it should come as no surprise then that, in our latest issue, we do just that. In Issue 8, available now as a free download (or for online reading!), we tackle the topics of religion and faith – specifically how, in the West, the sciences often clash with religious belief.
In this issue, chemist Josh Howgego – himself a Christian – dares to tackle this area as he explains how he can reconcile his faith with his career. Meanwhile, our resident Sceptic Guru Daryl Ilbury explores why some devotees see religious icons in cloths, stone walls … and slices of toast.
There’s also plenty of less controversial (but hopefully no less compelling) content in this issue.
Take guest writer Autumn Sartain, who tells the fascinating story of how one lost turtle could help save an endangered species, or Physics Guru James Lloyd’s Halloween-themed Frankenstein unearthing.
