Andrew Scott

Founder, Open Mind Project

Andrew Scott is the President and founder of the Open Mind Project (OMP), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation founded on the principle that science and spirituality can be complementary. The majority of the world's population today have deeply held cultural and religious attachments to beliefs that stem from a radically different era of human experience and understanding. Yet these ancient beliefs have power to affect our modern world in profound and often unconscious ways. When science conflicts with religion, it is frequently the result of religious beliefs being experienced out of their original context and creating cognitive dissonance. The goal of the Open Mind Project is to examine the consequences of particular religious beliefs and culturally embedded narratives.

Andrew received his Master of Divinity at the Pacific School of Religion at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA. His studies include Christian Theology, Islamic Philosophy and History, Buddhist meditation, theory and history, anthropology, and the psychology of religion.
