About Dr. Ventureyra

Scott D. G. Ventureyra

Dr. Scott D. G. Ventureyra is an author, theologian, and philosopher. He completed his PhD in philosophical theology at Carleton University/Dominican University College in Ottawa. His work in theology is philosophically informed. He has written in the domains of philosophical theology, systematic theology, natural theology, and the philosophy of religion. He has also done research in the areas of philosophy of mind and consciousness studies. While incorporating all these domains of thought, he has conducted significant research on the science-theology interaction. These are the areas he concentrated on throughout both his undergraduate and graduate studies in theology. Dr. Ventureyra also has a degree in the social sciences with a specialization in economics from the University of Ottawa.

He has published in academic journals such as Science et Esprit, The American Journal of Biblical Theology, Studies in Religion, Philosophy, Culture, and Traditions, Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical Review, Fidelitas (the Journal of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars (Canada)) and Maritain Studies (the journal of the Canadian Jacques Maritain Association). He has also written for magazines such as Crisis Magazine, Catholic Insight, and Convivium and newspapers such as The National Post, City Light News, The Ottawa Citizen, The Toronto Star, and The Times Colonist.

Additionally, he is the author of a number of books, including the Amazon best-seller On the Origin of Consciousness: An Exploration through the Lens of the Christian Conception of God and Creation, which received praise from eminent theologians, philosophers, and scientists. He is also the editor and principal author of COVID-19: A Dystopian Delusion: Examining the Machinations of Governments, Health Organizations, the Globalist Elites, Big Pharma, Big Tech, and the Legacy Media and Making Sense of Nonsense: Navigating through the West’s Current Quagmire.

He is currently working on a book about the Roman Catholic priest, paleontologist, and theologian Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, titled Why Teilhard Matters.

He has presented his research at conferences throughout North America, including several times at the Science of Consciousness Conference, the American Maritain Association, and the BioLogos Foundation-sponsored conference on Evolution and the Fall.
In recent years, he has written substantially on social, political, and cultural issues, such as freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, gender ideology, the sanctity of life, and problems related to the COVID-19 fiasco, such as informed consent, government tyranny, coercion, the nature of science, and a whole host of other important problems that have been plaguing the West.
During his PhD studies, he ran a successful vending machine business. After writing and publishing his first book in 2018 with Wipf and Stock, he then decided to go into the book publishing business, where he could combine his entrepreneurial skills with his love of books, freedom, and the truth. Given the prevailing political correctness and increased censorship, in 2020, he founded his own publishing press, True Freedom Press, an alternative press for free thinkers. Since 2020, he has edited, produced, and published five books with True Freedom Press. There are several more in the works that will be published in the near future.
Dr. Ventureyra values not only the spiritual and experiential elements of the Catholic faith, but he also takes Jesus’s words in the Gospel of Matthew very seriously: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:37). These words have helped him assist non-believers to come to faith in Christ and lapsed Catholics to rededicate themselves to the faith. He has made it part of his life mission to defend the faithful from the pitfalls and falsehoods of secular society. He seeks to demolish secular pretensions in order to restore a sense of wonder and mystery to God’s creation. But first, he challenges himself and others to reflect deeply on the nature of reality, which is both the world within (mental and spiritual realities) and the world without (physical-material reality).
