1994 Velikovsky Symposium Papers
Synopsis: The home page of the site. Its content lays out the general
but pertinent premises and claims about the source of the material, and
also disclaims any supernatural communication like visions and dreams.
Information about the agenda of the site and how and why it was
Relevance: The author feels that it is always pertinent if
not important before reading a book or an extensive collections of
articles to understand the source, premises, claims, the agenda, the how
Synopsis: Article deals with the author's approach, and purpose,
strategy, tactics, context, and rationale of the site and lays out
fundamental premises on which the site was developed.
Relevance: Explains why a new approach is needed.
The Importance of Context
In any situation or discussion context is paramount, but oftentimes an
awareness of it is lacking, and this seems to be true for philosophical
issues as well.
Relevance: There can be no valid meaning without the proper
What is Truth and the
Synopsis: Path or pathway implies a well worn, easily
discernable course to follow, but that is NOT the case. Rather, a better
characterization is that we all have to chop our way out of a jungle maze.
But the way is goodly defined by narrow parameters.
Relevance: We all face two territories, one inside of ourselves
and one outside. In finding the path, do we first look outward or do we
first look inward?
Article on Spirituality in America
Article presents a very useful overview of spirituality in America, and
the attendant confusion and miasma showing that there is good reason to
dissever oneself from organized religion.
Relevance: Portrays that it is a spiritual jungle out there.
8 Ultimate Issues Suggested Answers
Synopsis: These major issues are listed as questions with commentary expanding the
Relevance: We need to come to some conclusive answers to these
Do We Need a Fresh Theology?
A fairly long article laying out further premises, context and questions
to give a framework for why we need a different
basic theological paradigm.
Relevance: This is the centerpiece of the site, making the case
for a thorough overhaul of traditional theology, especially our conclusion
about the theology espoused by Jesus.
The reality of the Saturnian Scenario
Synopsis: An explanation of why I accept the validity of the Saturnian
Reconstruction of ancient times and the Golden Age.
Relevance: The importance of understanding that this really
happened in relatively recent ancient times can hardly be overstated. It
provides the explanation for so very much, including the nature of our
religions and culture.
Why Care About
Synopsis: An in-depth look at the importance of understanding
of ancient mythology.
Relevance: Understanding ancient myth is THE pathway to understanding the
Synopsis: Some significant questions leading to information that our religious and
cultural educational agencies fail to enlighten us with.
Relevance: Some of this ignorance is due to denial, some to
Key Term Definitions
Synopsis: About 60 key terms used on this site that needed to be clarified and
Relevance: Having good definitions allows us to have good
spiritual vision without confusion, both to know what we are talking about
and what others are talking about.
Mind Related Definitions
16 Key terms related to the mind are defined and differentiated.
5 Key terms related to intellectual activity are defined and
Relevance: Looks at the meaning of rational, logical,
reasonable and objective, both as a noun and a verb.
Definition of Life
Synopsis: "We are a deeply confused and dishonest species?" We
are, partly because we avoid definitions that would clarify the ultimate
issues. Consider the term "life" and how it is used. We say things like, "My
life is a mess right now" or "My life is on the upswing" or "Get a life". In
everyday life we very seldom use the term for biological
functionality, but overwhelmingly use the term to apply to the unfolding of
the pattern, content and quality. Even when someone dies and we say their
life is over, we are primarily referring to the spiritual reality of their
consciousness and ongoing experience, not their biochemical activity or
their physical, biological vitality.
Relevance: The proper definition has enormous implications for
good ethical decisions in many areas, especially for abortion, euthanasia,
capital punishment, conscientious objection to killing in war, etc.
Definitions of Ecclesia
There is much confusion regarding these terms of Christian importance,
and proper definitions are essential.
Relevance: An Ecclesia, what Jesus had in mind, is widely
divergent from a modern Christian church, and this needs to be seen and
There is much confusion regarding these terms of Christian importance,
and proper definitions are essential.
Relevance: The Parousia and the Apocalypse have already taken
place, and to look forward to these is just futility in ignorance.
Origin of the Soul Term Definitions
There is much confusion regarding the term soul, and it is confused in
modern lingo with the spirit, while being reified.
Relevance: A proper definition is crucial to understanding
living, dying, the state of the dead, the resurrections, and the Kingship of
Synopsis: A short definition of the scientific method and an
article describing what we mean by the word "science".
Relevance: The core of the scientific method is doing the
proper reality checks.
Human Condition Material
A look at the context of the human condition and how it should affect
Relevance: In any situation for decision or choice, context is
paramount, but oftentimes an awareness of it is lacking, and this is true
for belief and how we should then live issues as well.
Synopsis: It is estimated that there are over 100,000 different
identifiable religions with some 30,000 versions of Christianity in our
world today. What should be blatantly obvious is that almost no one, if
anyone, is in a majority on any serious or significant matter or issue.
Relevance: This cacophony of confusion is deplorable and leads
to great evil and misery, including warfare that has engendered great
anxiety and suffering, and has killed millions, and may lead to the demise
of billions if not the entire race.
Synopsis: A perspective or position is NOT the same thing as belief. Orthodox
means right or correct belief. Celebrating diversity of perspective is all
good, but there is one truth, and generally one best course of action, and
unity, not diversity on these, is highly desirable.
Relevance: At the end, conclusions and beliefs are what is
important, and diversity on this level is tantamount to chaos and confusion.
Human Condition of
A significant article taking the widest possible global perspective on
what has happened and the trend of what is happening.
Relevance: The picture is deplorable and demeaning to the human
race, and it WILL lead to aggression and conflict.
Why the Industrial Revolution
An incisive look at why the Industrial Revolution developed.
Relevance: An enlightening perspective for modern thinking.
Defending the Faith
A major treatise bemoaning the "victory" of science over "religion".
When Bryan Appleyard unlimbers his prodigious and insightful familiarity
with history and literature, it is a marvel to behold, and it DOES help us
understand the present. I recommend that it be read and re-read carefully
until the reader understands the implication, scope and importance of what
Appleyard is saying.
Relevance: Appleyard shows that the new "religion" is
scientism, which has marginalized all others.
A list of Questions for
Nine sets of questions with multiple-choice subsets addressing major
Relevance: These question bracket some of the fundamental
Current state of Academic Philosophy
Synopsis: An incisive look at the state of and the challenge
for modern philosophy.
Relevance: The tragedy is that philosophy is now considered to
be largely irrelevant.
Thoughts on the Fall of Man
By removing the mythology, this article shows that the fall of man was
related to a failure to choose to believe the best, not a violation of
an ordinate instruction.
Relevance: Puts sin and ultimate values into context.
Garden, Fall, Restore
An article on probable conditions during the Golden Age.
Relevance: Portrays some eye opening developments.
The Third Story
Somewhere between "God spoke, and it was so" and the "millions and
billions of years" of gradualism is the truth. This Third Story, radically
different from both the religious and the academic ones, listens to and is
educated by our ancient ancestors giving us an account of planetary catastrophe.
Relevance: It is the third story that is far more accurate and
relevant, and it needs to be heard and understood.
The Evil of the Ordinary
Synopsis: Sometimes the worst evil for a human being is when
nothing much good happens, when a life is so humdrum and mind-numbingly
ordinary and uneventful that we turn into little more than complex but habit
performing meat sticks. The ordinary bad stuff always happens, but sometimes
the really bad doesn't happen, but nothing much good or wonderful either. No
ecstatic romance, no fulfilling relationships, no exhilarating success, no
deepness of either agony or happiness.
Relevance: Remember Thoreau's quote, "Most men lead lives of
Essence of Koran
religions come with an instruction manual which explains how a believer
should practice the religion. Some instruction manuals are benign to begin
with and some have gone through a long reformation process which has turned
them from malignant to somewhat benign. The Koran has not undergone any reformation
process and looks today exactly as it did when it was written. It basically
dictates that the entire world must be coerced into converting to Islam, by
force of the sword if it doesn't happen willingly.
Relevance: The Koran seems to undergird and help sustain a
virulent religions that is in serious conflict with the Christianized
Western world, which some think will blossom into WWIII.
Solutions to Disunity

A Personal Account & The Question
A personal account leading up to the simple question and the simple
answer as to why anyone would consider another person or entity as being God.
Relevance: Identifies the only valid basis for deciding who or
what is worthy to be called God.
A Look Ahead
Critical Christianity analysis
Pointing out just three simple rationales to question the validity
Relevance: Gives an overall look at the framework of
Christianity and an extensive lst of its failings.
Christianity & Hellenism
Synopsis: An exposition of Christendom's roots in Hellenistic religions and their
Relevance: Christianity has not only adopted aspects of
Zoroastrianism and Judaism but has also been contaminated with
Religion as a Product
Christendom is hopelessly infused—contaminated if you will—with ancient
mythology and "traditional" thinking, structures, ceremonies, idolatry etc.,
that have nothing to do with the good news exposited and demonstrated by
Jesus. This baggage, this framework, effectively precludes a reasonable
consideration of the truth that he represented.
Relevance: Looks at religions as a product and compares the
surprising advantages of promoting it compared to a commercial product.
Perspective on God is Dead movement
A look at the meaning of the "God is Dead" movement, its meaning and why
it is relevant.
Relevance: Nietzsche is given credit for starting or laying the
foundation of this movement, and his challenge was valid and found purchase
among the most reasonable theologians.
A study on John the Baptist syndrome
Raising major questions about the status and the fate of John the Baptist.
Relevance: Looks at why John the Baptist couldn't accept Jesus
as having been sent by God.
Four Basic Questions
1. How did we get into this situation?
2. Why is God not involved in a more visible and tangible way?
3. What can we do to change or get out of this situation?
4. Are millions of Christians making a huge mistake in
begging and trying to manipulate God into answering their petty, mundane
Relevance: These questions have answers that when found may
lead us into a "promised land" far superior to what has been envisioned.
Christian belief tested - 20 questions
20 pertinent and incisive questions for Christendom are posed.
Relevance: In order to become much more than programmed
meatstick victims of the human condition, Christians need to ask themselves
If Jesus was/is the answer, what went wrong?
Synopsis: At the time of Jesus on
earth, the Jews were looking for a savior of the nation, not of the cosmos
nor even of the global world. They were looking for their Messiah who was to
be a representative of God, and be a king on earth, and they had a short
list of miracles that would qualify and verify such a person. But they had
no concept that THE ORIGINATOR himself would come instead of some lesser
Messiah. No matter what he said and did, Jesus was not able to break through
this spiritual barrier.
Relevance: The listeners at the time were unable to challenge
their paradigm. They were looking for an earthly savior, a Messiah, NOT a
visit and complete demonstration from God.
The Weeping for Lazarus Problem
Synopsis: There is a HUGE problem with the traditional understanding of this incident.
Did Jesus do Lazarus a favor by resurrecting him only to give him more
chances to go wrong, or at best only to just die all over again?
Relevance: What Jesus told Martha is ignored. Christian dogma
seems to be able to override some of the plainest of statements by Jesus.
The Greying of
An article about how religions are now having to confront aging and
Relevance: Some of these were not expected to die before "the

to to be commonly doing several things that are destructive of spiritual
growth and good human relationships?
Common hidden Theological

Simple Mistakes Affecting
Synopsis: 15 simple yet profound mistakes in basic Christian thinking and
Relevance: These mistakes have been institutionalized in
Gospel of John - 4 Laments on the
Almost nobody is aware that the Gospel writer John, 30 to 40 years later,
gives four laments in his first three chapters over the failure of the
demonstration by Jesus to engender understanding of the truth, even in
his fellow disciples.
Relevance: When this is understood and accepted, it changes
everything for Christian thinking.
Thoughts on Blessings
A challenge to the idea of God blessing individuals, showing this to be
a disguised form of hubris.
Relevance: These "blessings" are usually exaggerated while
having conventional explanations.
Maybe Things Jesus
Should Have Said
If Christianity is on the right ground or paradigm, then these are
the things Jesus should have said to be compatible.
Relevance: Highlights some troubling issues and inconsistencies
Martyr Stephen on Moloch's Tent
The martyr Stephen knew that the "Tent of Presence" or Tabernacle in the
wilderness was the tent of Saturn or Moloch.
Relevance: Stephen was literally saying that Judaism was always
a false religion.
Letter to a Christian Author
A letter of response to a published article pointing out some key issues
that were either ignored or misunderstood by the author..
Relevance: More examples of misunderstandings.
Children of God
Synopsis: Exploring the concept that we are the children of
God, and why this wonderful thinking loses its real meaning and power to
inspire us toward the truth.
Relevance: If a real parent in the USA treated his children the
way God treats "his", he would be prosecuted and thrown in jail for neglect,
Christendom's fundamental and Major Mistakes
Synopsis: Major mistake by Christendom, each of which are dealt with in the
Relevance: Jesus has been mis-framed by Old Testament prophecy
and by being considered as the Messiah, instead of being framed by the
ultimate issues. A list of other significant mistakes that add up to
a profoundly false religion.
The 12 Disciples
Synopsis: Why should we challenge and criticize the legacy of the 12
disciples? The reasons are many and
the results of their failures speak for themselves.
Relevance: It is past time that we did this, because
Christendom is in denial of the failures of the disciples and "Apostles".
The Twin Pillars of Christianity
A critical look at the concepts of Peter and Paul being the foundation of
Christianity instead of those espoused by Jesus.
Relevance: Clearly show that "Christianity" is founded upon the
traditions and ideas espoused by Peter and Paul instead of Jesus.
On the Subversion of Christianity
Synopsis: An article showing that Christianity has been subverted right from the
Relevance: Quotes from
Jacques Ellul, The Subversion of Christianity, and analysis.
Synopsis: Some major mysticisms widespread in Christendom
Relevance: A list of significant mysticisms widespread in
Mysticism versus Understanding
Synopsis: One of the great or fundamental issues for
philosophy or theology is mysticism versus understanding, mythos versus
logos. The J person calls for our understanding of “God” as a human being.
He equates that with salvation, as in, “And this IS eternal life, that they
understand you and the one that you have sent.”
Relevance: An analysis of mysticism in contrast to understanding and intellectual
Synopsis: Not all idols are primitive and carved from wood and
Relevance: Identification of the essence of idolatry and a
clear look at its extent in Christendom.
Christendom's Rites and Sacraments
Synopsis: Premise: Christianity has developed and fostered new
rites, ceremonies and sacraments as legitimate and necessary accessories to
the religious experience and the spiritual life, but these are not founded
upon any legitimate instruction or interpretation of what the J-person said.
Relevance: A critical look and analysis of the major rites and ceremonies of
Liturgy is one the the most powerful and effective opiates to keep the
Relevance: The liturgical experience is used as a once-a-week
substitute for what is missing in our experience of a healed reality.
Mysticism versus Understanding
Synopsis: One of the great or fundamental issues for philosophy
or theology is mysticism versus understanding, mythos versus logos. The J
person calls for our understanding of “God” as a human being. He equates
that with salvation, as in, “And this IS eternal life, that they understand
you and the one that you have sent.” Where does he call for some mystical
connection or loss of individuality or physicality? In HIS prayer, he asks
that we may be “one” with god, but clarifies that as being in unity
Relevance: To think that final success is some mystical,
impossible to understand, oneness is to deny the validity of all other
natural, normal, morally defensible desires and needs.
Confused Christian Terminology
Synopsis: Four important Koine Greek terms that are
mistranslated and confused in Christianity: Ecclesia, Parousia, Apocalypse,
Relevance: Understanding the true meaning of these Greek words
will eliminate much confusion and false doctrine.
Bible and Canon Issues
Bible Mystique of Sacred Writings
Synopsis: A critical and incisive look at the mystique that the Bible has in our
Relevance: This mystique is essentially idolatry, and is a huge
problem for coming to the truth and unity of belief.
Synopsis: The major premise is that the old, wrong paradigm of God skews the
translation, which is already inherently problematic.
Relevance: These issues must be sorted out in a careful,
rational and reasonable way.
Information on the Bible Canon
The Bible as Word of God
Synopsis: Almost all Christians are compromised by an almost complete lack of
knowledge about the Bible canon and its development.
Relevance: SOME people have their eyes opened when they learn
just some of this material. Understanding this issue changes the way we hear
and use these ancient texts.
Synopsis: An article challenging the dogma that the Bible is the
Word of God.
Relevance: So much of what is awry with Christendom can be
attributed to this canard, that the Bible is God's theistic revelation to
Bible Content Comments
Synopsis: Twenty very significant pieces of information about the Bible
canons and content.
Relevance: These comment help significantly when sorting
out some of the major issues surrounding the Bible and its content.
Valid Criteria for Selecting Gospel Text
Synopsis: One of the challenging questions that is raised and
that the believer MUST face concerns how it can be legitimate or be
justified to select and reject what to accept and believe and what to
discount or discard in the Gospel accounts concerning what Jesus said and
Relevance: In one way or another, EVERYBODY selects and rejects Bible passages, so
some valid criteria MUST be developed.
Visit to the Tomb Gospel
Synopsis: Aspect by aspect, a comparison of this passage in the four Gospels
highlights MAJOR problems and issues with taking it all as untarnished.
Relevance: Helps to show that the Gospel of John is inherently
more reliable, being an actual eyewitness account in contrast to the
Synoptic Gospels, which are compilations of second, third, and fourth hand
Debunk of Forged Origins of the Gospels
Synopsis: Dealing with an extreme and unsupportable attack on the origins of the New Testament.
Relevance: Taking the unwarranted position of the article would
completely destroy any credible foundation for believing in Jesus or a God
worthy of the term.
The Jefferson Bible
Synopsis: Driven by a desire to select what he considered
the most attractive and authentic material from the Gospels, Jefferson
pasted up 46 pages' worth of his favored passages. He took translations
of the Bible from several languages—Greek, Latin, French and English
(the King James Version)—and arranged his selections in parallel columns.
Relevance: Jefferson understood that the final authority for
truth has to be a man's internal reference point of idealism, and the US
declaration of Independence reflects this when it states, "We hold these
truths to be self-evident."
Dead Sea Scroll info
Synopsis: The Dead Sea Scrolls, hidden away in Holy Land caves
2,000 years ago and unearthed after World War II, are often rated the 20th
century's greatest archaeological find.
Relevance: The chief reason for most people? The rediscovery of
230 texts of biblical books, which are freshly translated without being
influenced by previous publishing such as the King James test, and which
have begun to change details in the Scriptures read by millions.
Bible Scholar Feud
Synopsis: Over the past decade a violent dispute
has erupted in the ivory towers of biblical studies that has divided Old
Testament scholars into two warring camps, neither of which is now on
speaking terms with the other.
Relevance: This at least shows that there are cracks in the
accepted foundation for Judeo-Christianity, and that we need a better
foundation for our faith.
Pentateuch 4 Sources
Synopsis: What may not be as well known is that
during the last two centuries, many Biblical scholars have concluded that
those Biblical books known as the Pentateuch, are a compilation of four
separate narratives, woven together by ancient editors, or redactors, to
create a single text.
Relevance: Again, this finding affects how we relate to and use
these passages that are part of the foundation of Judeo-Christianity.
Bible Statistics Misuse
Synopsis: Many books and websites
list faulty statistics on the King James Bible. Of course the number of
books (66) and chapters (1,189) are fairly easy to count. However when it
comes to verses, words and letters, there are a wide variety of numbers
floating around. These statistics, themselves untrustworthy, have
the playground for abuse.
Relevance: Much mischief is done with the devisors of fanciful
constructs by misusing Bible verses and statistics.
Gospel's Events Sequence
Synopsis: We often order the telling of a journey by the impact
and significance of the experiences to us. The sequential order seldom if
ever rises to the level of being taken into consideration, by us or by the
listener. So it is with much of the ancient history as it has come down to
us. The telling of a story also depends upon to whom you are talking. We
wouldn't tell the story in the same way with the same content to children as
we may do to our intellectual colleagues.
Relevance: We need to understand that the verses that indicate
a chronology are noy infallible, and that this lack of a credible chronology
has implications but does NOT really undermine the careful understanding of
the message of Jesus.
Old Testament Allegories
Synopsis: It may be that not only is the Garden of Eden story
an allegory, which may have been developed early by the Akkadian and Hebrew
mythmakers, but this may have set the pattern in a larger sense than what
has been realized for that which followed. Whatever the case, the Old
Testament is full of fabulous and wonderful allegories, some of which are
included in the article.
Relevance: Maybe the entire Old Testament history of Israel is
an allegory with the very thinnest base in reality. This would have been
developed over centuries following the original allegorical model and of
course the false sin-breeding paradigm.
Synopsis: This is a description of an historical model,
presented through the device of personification. It will become clear as the
argument unfolds why this model—this bundle of hypotheses—is an appropriate
one in the present state of our knowledge of biblical texts and, indeed,
that it has the virtue of being parsimonious, an unusual characteristic in
this particular area.
Relevance: Helps significantly yo understand how it all came
about, and that the real God may not have had anything to do with the
development of the Old Testament.
Editing the Bible
Synopsis: A belief-neutral description of the processes that
created the Jewish and Christian foundational classics (the Hebrew Bible,
the Jewish literature of the Second Temple period, the New Testament, the
Mishna and the Talmud).
Relevance: Information and perspective that is badly needed by
believers in Christendom.
Introduction to Gospel John
Synopsis: A very enlightening description of the structure,
tenor, and contents of the Gospel of John, it points out aspects and
dimensions that are seldom seen and appreciated.
Relevance: Introduces a new version of John with the translation
showing how it is coherent with the IFISEEUS paradigm.
Gospel of John
Synopsis: A new and significantly different translation, with
commentary, of this historically accurate account of the life and message of
Relevance: One of two eyewitness accounts, this most important
foundational Gospel is translated Into the new paradigm.
Gospel of Thomas
A short, almost narrative free list of wisdom sayings that provide the
"second" eyewitness testimony that authenticates that of the Gospel of John.
The Gospel of Thomas is qualitatively superior to the Synoptic Gospels for
most of the same reasons as John is superior. Finally, the Gospel of Thomas
is free of anything that supports the suspect Christian traditions, which
include the Hebrew Bible, the Messiahship, the rites and sacraments,
misguided praying, the liturgy, the formalized leadership structure, any
prophetic chronology of the future with a misidentified "apocalypse",
hierarchies of angels, demons, and devils, the materialist "Heaven", ad
nauseam. It is almost as if this Gospel writer did not want to foster or
contribute to any of this.
Jesus Teachings Material
Jesus on Faith and Belief
Synopsis: A collection of all the passages in
the Gospels where Jesus talks about faith or belief. Looking at all the
usages is the primary way of understanding and translating the ancient
languages and texts
Relevance: We need to know what Jesus meant when he asked us to
believe. We need to understand that according to him, NOBODY believed when
he died. We need to see that very few have believed since, and that God is
Jesus on Not Dying
Synopsis: The following are crucial passages that Christendom
either ignores or explains away by portraying them as applying to the
next life. These are the promises made by Jesus of unending, everlasting
life to be delivered imminently.
Relevance: These passages clearly mean literally not dying
biologically. Jesus is talking about this more times than anything else
outside of the kingship of the heavens, and he is stating this MORE CLEARLY
than ANYTHING else. The relevance is at the top, because this is the
cornerstone of the real good news; without life we have nothing.
Jesus on Understanding God
Synopsis: A study of the statements of Jesus
showing that he taught that imminent salvation is equivalent to
understanding the purpose, plan, values and character of God
Relevance: Probably the primary or most basic requirement for a
respectable loving relationship is for both people to have a desire and
commitment to understand each other. We are in the position of needing that
kind of relationship with God, in that our alternative is to be on our own
and just finish aging and dying, and yet religion down through the ages has
made the soul or psyche of God alien, non-human and beyond understanding, so
that we don't even try.
Jesus on Kingship of the Heavens
Synopsis: The argument for this translation of "kingship"
instead of "kingdom", and all the passages where Jesus uses the phrase.
Relevance: One of the very most important issues and studies,
because the implications are so far ranging. A major piece of the paradigm.
Jesus on Resurrection of the Body
Synopsis: Putting the implications of the
resurrection into proper perspective. When it comes right down to it, the
only reason for taking Jesus seriously at all is because he was resurrected.
If Jesus had not been resurrected he would certainly have been lost in the
dustbin of history and we would never have heard of him.
Relevance: If there is no resurrection of the body, there is
nothing to talk about.
Jesus - What to Do to Bring Resolution
Synopsis: No message of salvation can be
efficacious or complete without instructions about what to do to achieve or
to qualify. The verses are gathered together for the reader to see what the
man himself had to say. Having them all together helps
get the instructions into into the proper perspective.
Relevance: What to do is a crucial part of the bottom line.
Jesus on Parousia and End of the Age
Synopsis: Jesus responded to questions with
answers that show he was referring to four different ages: his current age
drawing to a close, the next—our present—age, the following age of
judgment and healing, and the final age of glorious eternal living in the kingship.
Relevance: Makes clear what Jesus was talking about concerning
Jesus had to Say About the Paraclete
Synopsis: All the passages where
Jesus talks about the Paraclete. A paraclete was a person like an attorney
for the defense, an advocate, a oerson of significant experience and wisdom who was acting
as a protector, one with whom you could feel secure and not be conned or
Relevance: There are two important aspects that need to
be understood: the nature of the agency and its role.
What Jesus Says About His Return
Synopsis: A collection of verses showing that these remarks
were all made BEFORE the crucifixion and the resurrection.
Relevance: Shows what
Jesus meant by his words of return, and why traditional concepts of the "Second
Coming" are misguided.
The Lord's Prayer Teaching
Synopsis: The content and its limitation, and
even the format of this prayer, has significant implications and
ramifications for the proper mindset and for what to pray for and what NOT
to pray for.
Relevance: Understanding this issue eliminates a lot of
needless and misguided—and unanswered—praying.
Jesus on Sin,
Fasting, and Praying
Synopsis: A collection of verses showing what
sin is and that fasting and praying will increase or harden the sin in us.
Relevance: Understanding this issue eliminates a lot of
needless and misguided—and unanswered—praying.
What Jesus Didn't Say Anything About
Synopsis: Sometimes what is NOT said speaks with
as much impact as what IS said. This list is very enlightening. Let's
understand that Jesus was silent about one of the major aspects of the
unfolding human drama. Because of its importance and seemingly foundational
import, this absence can be considered as the elephant in the living room.
Outside of a rhetorical reference to a personified evil, "That one was a
liar from the beginning", He said nothing about either the origin of evil or
the fall of man. How can this be?
Relevance: An extensive and eye opening list of major aspect of
life that Jesus did not say anything about, which implies his message was
The Parables of Jesus with
Synopsis: Most of the parables found in the synoptic Gospels.
Omitted are the more simple and direct analogies, objects lessons, and those
that Jesus himself explained.
Relevance: The commentary and interpretations given are
generally not the traditional ones, but are compatible with the Gospel of
Synopsis: A collection of the verses or passages in the Gospels
where we are addressed as children of God.
Relevance: It is usually helpful to gather all the verses
related to a subject and canvas them all together.
The Aphorisms by Jesus
Synopsis: A collection of the saying of Jesus that can be
considered as aphorisms.
Relevance: Jesus is noted for his aphorisms.
Perspective on the non-Christian Jesus
Synopsis: Books that are written about the J-person are written
from a position that includes a variable mix of some of the underlying
preconceptions of Christianity that dearly need to be challenged. Even
though some authors try to clear the slate they have not found the way.
Relevance: Article shows that Jesus would not be considered as
Christian today, and he wouldn't want to be identified as such.
The Sterilized Jesus
Synopsis: A frank look at how Jesus has been sterilized, and
how that makes him artificial and unreal. Includes looking at how Puritanism
has taken away a dimension from us.
Relevance: The sterilization of Jesus has made him inot an
unreal and alien being.
Comparison of Values
Synopsis: Jesus ACTUALLY tried to steer us away from trying to love
God directly or tangibly. He is not now here in a physical form and
consequently is not available to be loved tangibly. His words were, "By this
shall all men know that you are my followers, that you love one another as I
have loved you", and "If you have done it unto one of the least of my
brothers, you have done it unto me." Simply put, you can love God only by
loving other human beings. Atheistic humanists don't accept that there is a
god and simply espouse loving other humans.
Relevance: Understanding of this clears up a great confusion
and unloads a heavy burden.
Jesus versus Mythical Avatars
There have been some arguments that the tangible existence
of Jesus on earth was mythical. One of the arguments is that
he shares so many aspects of the lives of a sizeable number
of warrior-hero god-kings in more than one cultural
mythology. Here is a list of life-aspects of mythical avatars.
Relevance: Provides some pertinent information.
Contrasted with Leaders
Synopsis: A look at the contrast brterrn Jesus and leaders in

implications are significant.
How Jesus Related to Societal
Synopsis: A look at the range of various ways that Jesus
related to different people.
Jesus, Israel & Scripture
Synopsis: At the basis of a religion is a set of ideas, and
usually there is one that sits as the cornerstone and sets that religion
apart, with the others of the set of dogmas forming the greater foundation.
Relevance: An explanation of why the Hebrew scripture should
not be used the way they are in Christendom.
Jesus and Sexism
Synopsis: A look at the issue of sexism and the actions and
message of Jesus.
Relevance: A very troublesome and important aspect of God's
value system and how extensive and wrong sexism is in religion.
Christ Conspiracy Rebut
Synopsis: A point by point response to the final conclusions of
the Christ Conspiracy.
Relevance: The commentary reveals that the claims are largely
exaggerated, misleading or false, and the key conclusions are shallow or
misguided and therefore unwarranted
A few words about
Synopsis: A paradigm is most like a container. It is a
structure that holds, handles and organizes evidence, information and issues
in a related, consistent way so that the whole—greater than the sum of the
parts—can be seen, and so that new information can be positioned in its
proper relationship. Paradigms are not just important; they are crucial.
Relevance: Paradigms are NOT optional; everyone has them and
uses them whether they realize this or not. A good paradigm is one that is
able to "contain" and organize effectively ALL the evidence, information and
issues, so that as more is learned, the picture that emerges makes more and
more sense. A bad paradigm is one that cannot effectively "make sense" out
of some or much of the information.
Paradigm Lockout Syndrome
Synopsis: A look at the paradigm paralysis that
infects so many people.
Relevance: The power of the
paradigm tells you what you see.
Paradigm of Bicameral Brain-Mind
Synopsis: A look of appreciation at Julian Jaynes, the bicameral
brain-mind paradigm, and where Jaynes may have gone wrong

that reflects both the physical structure and psychological structure of the
brain-mind, and provides fertile ground for explanations of manythings
previously deemed hopelessly enigmatic.
Paradigm of Holographic Universe
Synopsis: An introduction to the very
powerful Holographic Universe paradigm. SOMETHING comparable must be the
Relevance: This piece lays the foundation for
understanding hitherto very enigmatic aspects of the human experience.
Article on Holographic World
Synopsis: The article presents some exciting ideas from brain
research about the holographic theory of memory developed by Karl Pribram
and David Bohm.
Relevance: The paradigm has significant implications for our
concepts of "deep reality".
Paradigm of the Ground
Synopsis: Explores the question of where
creativity comes from.
Relevance: The evidence points to exactly where we experience
Paradigm of Pertinent Philosophy
Synopsis: Having a belief structure is like having a mind, we
never see it and we hardly ever think about it but we use it all the time.
Denying that you have a mind does not mean that you do not have one, only
that you are not using it well. If you say, "I don't have a belief system",
then that is your belief system! Rather than denying that we have one, why
don't we take the responsibility to build the best possible belief structure
that we are able to have and hold?
Relevance: It's long past time that we determined to be more
honest and intellectually responsible.
Paradigm of the Descent into
Synopsis: The story of Man built from major
pieces, facets, elements and/or phases from creation to now.
Relevance: The article endeavors to explain the origin and
descent into evil using analogies and everyday English instead of

Relevance: The article endeavors to give a fresh perspective on
the Gospel or good news.

aspects, and the 4 types of human transactions, giving, taking, trading and
Relevance: The article endeavors to cut through the shallowness
and sentimentality surrounding the issues of love and relationships.
Paradigm of the Nature of Jesus
Synopsis: A realistic, graphical look at the
human nature of Jesus.
Relevance: Never before Jesus was there a completely noble
concept of a human God
promulgated, and never was there an adequate demonstration of
such to reach and change the hearts and minds of Mankind.
The What-If Paradigm
Synopsis: A look at some major issues through
the "What if" approach.
Relevance: Maybe this is the way it should be, and maybe is.
Synopsis: A list of major paradigms and sub-paradigms.
Relevance: Helps put the diversity and confusion into
Synopsis: If you understand and accept in
general the theme of planetary astral catastrophism and especially the
Saturn myth reconstruction and the concomitant themes of the Golden Age
ending in a major disaster and resulting in a series of lesser Solar system
shakeups, the implications and ramifications of the reconstruction become
Relevance: The range and extent of intellectual knowledge and spiritual
belief change becomes almost unmanageable or overwhelming for the modern man
immersed, educated, trained and conditioned in the popular world views built
around either the "godless" or purposeless evolutionistic gradualism of
establishment science, or his "religion" based on some external authority
figure (book, tradition, denomination or hierarchal priesthood, leadership
or clergy), or some mind and soul numbing combination thereof.
Paradigm of Solipsism
Synopsis: A look at the simplest and most shallow paradigm of
them all. the idea that only I exist and that EVERYTHING else is just part
of my own dream.
Relevance: Looking closely at this paradigm shows that it
cannot be disproven logically, and therefore our volition has to be
involved, we must choose to believe it or not. Some individuals consider
this as early as nine years old, and volitionally discard it.
Synopsis: An analysis of the multiple
reincarnation paradigm of reality and destiny.
Relevance: A huge amount of myth has been built into the
fertile ground of this paradigm.
Turkey Paradigm Poem
Synopsis: A poem for Thanksgiving Day dealing
with paradigm shifts, and how they will be resisted.
Relevance: Pointed, but mostly just for fun!
Synopsis: Many of his readers didn't believe
that Copernicus was claiming that the Sun was the center of the solar
system. These astronomers thought the heliocentric system was a mathematical
trick just to make calculations easier. Today, astronomers and cosmologists
are faced with an evidently equally difficult shift from the gravity dominated universe to the electric
plasma dominated one.
Relevance: The Electric Universe paradigm, unlike the
gravitational one, can accomodate the things that our ancient ancestors
experienced and reported to us.
Halton Arp & Galileo
Synopsis: An article comparing Halton Arp and
his galactic findings on quasars and redshift to the developments of
Relevance: Accepting that redshift does NOT equal distance from
the earth when considering stars and galaxies pulls the rug out from under
the Big Bang, the exploding and expanding universe.
Electric Universe Theory
Synopsis: The "Electric Universe" is a paradigm
change, a new way of interpreting findings in terms of plasma and electrical
forces. In this interpretation, gravity plays a secondary role behind the
far more powerful electric force, and electrified plasma in the laboratory
provides a model for comprehending newly-discovered phenomena in space.
Relevance: The EU paradigm has enormous ramifications in
virtually all of the hard sciences, besides supporting the ancient accounts
of astral catastrophes and cometary disasters.
Can We Agree?
Synopsis: A lengthy list of significant things
we should be able to agree upon before we start to argue or debate.
Relevance: Agreement on these basic things can eliminate much
acrimony and clear the way to a greater common understanding and unity of
What is a Prophet?
Synopsis: An article showing that a prophet is
not a prognosticator but a spokesman that has the next level of truth for
Relevance: There is so much nonsense and false belief in this
area that needs to be dismissed.
Synopsis: Intellectual responsibility can be defined as being
rational, logical and reasonable in our thinking and belief. Given that our
world view, our belief system, our philosophy, our thinking, and our ethics
affect and effect everything that we do, here are some questions for the

validity and benefits.
Relevance: An important issue that needs further clarification.
Criteria for Cults
Synopsis: How to evaluate new cult leaders'
promises of exotic and liberating aspects of empowerment to their adherents.
Relevance: The problem is that any new truth that spawns a
following can be dismissed as merely a cult.
Thoughts on The Brothers Karamazov
Synopsis: Thoughts on the difference between the view of the
Cardinal and Jesus concerning the three temptations. The Gospel account of
the temptation may actually be apocryphal.
Relevance: Some Christians are falsely tempted to think that
they are called upon to emulate Jesus or to pass these tests.
Synopsis: Some of the most impressive and thought-provoking
question that have been raised by atheists. Every mature believer in God
should be able to answer these questions
Relevance: If a believer cannot meaningfully answer answer
these questions, there is a serious problem.
Synopsis: The five "W" questions of Who, Why, What, When and Where.
Relevance: Of primary relevance.
A Critique of A New Earth
Synopsis: This critique shows that the thinking
of the book is based upon a fundamentally erroneous concept regarding the
Relevance: It is fashionable for some gurus to point out some
blatant ego problems that we have. This actually gives people a license to
think that awareness of the problem solves the problem, rather than to find
the way to actually heal the ego.
Dogma, motivation for false
Synopsis: Various potential motives for false dogma.
Relevance: Give insight into fostering false thinking.
Some Modern Parables

Arctic Climate Changes
Challenge on Dinosaur Growth
Megafauna Size/Weight Limits
Who are the Cetaceans?
Synopsis: Lays out a thoughtful, provoking case that the higher
cetacean life forms may be the "real people" of the earth.
Relevance: The author of the site has not adopted the position taken
in the article nor the evolutionistic framework, but finds the study of the larger,
more advanced cetaceans, especially killer whales, to be fascinating and
insightful. These life forms have larger and more complex brains than homo
sapiens, and they seem to have social structure and values that rival our
own. We kill them with impunity, and they generally save us when we are in
A Model for Visions and Dreams
Synopsis: A suggested model for understanding
vision and dreams as not being engendered by God but being internally generated.
Relevance: A very important principle for precluding the
following of false prophets.
Synopsis: An article by Rupert Sheldrake about telepathy
showing that it is a real phenomenon that must be acknowledged
Relevance: The page includes a section, written by the site author,
that deals with the implications for Man and his re-empowerment, suggesting
that it is our pretension, competition, fragmentation, angst, etc., that
prevents this natural ability for being awakened..
Life After Death Issues
Various Models of Human Destiny
Synopsis: An attempt to categorize in general the ways in which
the various paradigms portray human destiny. There are about a half dozen
with many sub-variations.
Relevance: Given that we cannot know from experience and that
our volition must be involved, it is important to look at this issue with
the proper perspective.
Importance of Catastrophism
Synopsis: Without an understanding of ancient
catastrophism one just CANNOT get the context for the truth in so very many
Relevance: Such an understanding provides the background context for so many
aspects of the "softer sciences", for anthropology, archaeology, for human culture, religion,
politics, and psychology.
Ancient Explosion Reports
Synopsis: A discussion about ancient explosion and destruction
accounts and evidence.
Relevance: Another insightful look at ancient catastrophes.
Synopsis: An unexpected find of an ancient poem in a subway
reflecting past catastrophe.
Relevance: Another reminder that our past has been buried by
the modern mythology.
The Bergamo Experience
Synopsis: In 2000, an invitation to introduce the Saturn
Reconstruction material at the University of Milano-Bergamo in Italy
uncovered the willingness of the audience to listen to the most errant
nonsense, but not the Saturnian material, even though they are immersed in
the mythology and surrounded with its iconography in their art,statuary and
Relevance: The article demonstrates once again the preference
for being deceived instead of being open to the truth.
Synopsis: Sommers analyzes the philosophical underpinnings
of the victimology-feminist movement, first visiting the universities, where
lockstep conformity is enforced in the name of "diversity" and
"inclusiveness." Many widely espoused misandrous hoaxes are exposed.
Relevance: The article brings a refreshing and much needed
balanced perspective to this issue.
Account of Personal Experience
Synopsis: A kind of synopsis of the site author's personal
journey in life, and significant things that he has observed that add up to
a necessity for a major rethink.
Relevance: Experience has the highest relevance.

corporation, he would have this questionnaire to present to his customers.
Relevance: Mostly just for fun!
Synopsis: A quick look at scholastics in the Middle Ages.
Relevance: Portrays the trivium and the quadrivium.
Pensée Issues links
Synopsis: Pensée is a series of 10 journals conceived by
David Talbott and Stephen Talbott with the first issue coming out in May
1972. Both the publisher, David, and the editor, Stephen, were intrigued
by the ideas, work, and impact of Immanuel Velikovsky. They desired to
provide an article forum for involved, knowledgeable people to evaluate
the whole "Velikovsky affair" about 30 years after Worlds in
Collision first broke upon civilization like a starburst in
Relevance: Everybody that wants to be widely, deeply and
should read these issues.
Synopsis: Links to two video lectures and five pertinent
Relevance: The videos deal with the nature of time and aspects
of our cultural carryforward from the ancient catastrophes. The articles
deal with the new cosmological paradigm.
Life and Ethics
Review the Branches of Philosophy
Synopsis: A short review of philosophy and its
branches of Epistemology, Logic, Metaphysics, Ethics and Aesthetics.
Relevance: Foundation for understanbding the literature and
Review of Philosophical Methods
Synopsis: Philosophers have used a variety of methods to get
the attention of potential listeners, all the way from hijinks, stunts and
making a spectacle out of themselves, to stories, parables and preaching,
and to the Socratic method of asking stimulating questions to initiate a
focused discussion or dialogue. The philosopher's tools are basically three:
observation or learning, logic, and speculative reasoning.
Relevance: A look at the various styles but more importantly
the approaches and methods of philosophers in the search for understanding.
Building a Belief System
Synopsis: Do you have the courage to really question your
belief system?. Have you made a commitment to subject your beliefs to the
reality check of them being rational, logical and reasonable? Do you have a
paradigm? Aren't paradigms crucial and paramount? Are you trapped in a
paradigm not of your own choosing?
Relevance: We more surely live within our belief structure than
we do in buildings, but unlike a building, you can't go in and out of your
belief system. You can only change it.
The Sound Philosophical Foundation
Synopsis: Exploring the universal purpose of
life for conscious beings.
Relevance: Every psychologically sound person SHOULD know the
purpose of life, and to not know it is to be spiritually crippled. Until the
seeker of truth can articulate the answer and be certain that this is the
SINGULAR and ONLY right answer, he does not know himself nor others well
enough to proceed very much further in the search for truth.
The Path to the Truth
Synopsis: The person that is on the path to the truth realizes
that they did NOT design and create objective reality. They cannot KNOW the
truth from this ordinate or ultimate position.
Relevance: Therefore, it is only logical that they pursue those
ideas that at least PROMISE to deliver goodness, i.e., what they really need
and want. All other paths can surely be ignored.
Value of Consistency
Synopsis: Highlighting the profound lack of
consistency in Christian theology.
Relevance: You can't fixit if you don't know its wrong.
Category knowledge & propositions
Synopsis: An exposition of the five basic
categories of knowledge and the four of propositions.
Relevance: Puts things into a helpful perspective.
Nature & Definition of Time
Synopsis: lets make sure that we understand the difference
between the words "time" and "eternity", because they are not the same. The
definition of eternity may be somewhat difficult to elaborate, but the
definition of time can be very simple, clear and straightforward.
Thoughts on the Origin of Life
Synopsis: A passage from the book Life Comes
From Life, and a quote from Franz Boas, German-American pioneer
Relevance: Makes the case for life being the foundation of
The Ground of Creativity
Synopsis: This article suggest that the ground of creativity is
exactly where we experience it: in the human mind.
Relevance: Helps to eliminate some of the mysticism fostered by
Lack of Meaning
Synopsis: Faced with the enormous amount of evil and suffering
in our world, the rational, critical thinking man is tempted to conclude
that there is no meaning to be found within the universe apart from the
limited and temporary meaning of living and maximizing one's own fulfillment
and that of other temporal humans.
Relevance: This is the essence of “Existentialism”, that there
is no meaning or purpose that can be found “out there” and that the
individual must accept what exists as apprehensible to us—“What is”—and
create or manufacture our own meaning.
Closing of Scientific Mind
Synopsis: A magnificent article showing how scientism is
dehumanizing us by comparing us to machines of computers.
Relevance: This change of thinking is the great threat to the
quality of life.
Ethics versus Morality
Synopsis: Ethics and morality are closely related but are not
the same thing. Of course, in this noisy, confused world they have been
amalgamated and the difference has been blurred. The difference between the
two can be said to be in the direction they are pointing. What is ethical
primarily relates to how our behavior affects society and others, while
morality should relate primarily as to how our behavior affects morale,
ultimately our own of others.
Relevance: This very important distinction should clarify our
thinking about the two issues.
The Four Laws of Reasonable
Synopsis: Gives examples of the:
1. Principle of Non-Contradiction
2. Principle of Identity
3. Principle of Excluded Middle
4. Principle of Sufficient Reason
Relevance: These are foundational concepts.
Superstition, Myth &
Synopsis: An approach to root out superstition
and myth, and take personal intellectual responsibility.
Synopsis: "Education” cannot “teach” an innate ability that has
been suppressed or winnowed out, it cannot overcome the destruction of this
ability unless it can reawaken it. It cannot be “taught” but needs to be
awakened, nurtured, protected, kept alive, cultured, and ultimately
MOTIVATED AND INSPIRED, BECAUSE doing so will threaten those around you
Relevance: This perspective or realization mandates a different
approach to energize and stimulate critical thinking in our developing young
Smug Man versus Straw Man
Synopsis: An article by a friend showing the
overriding importance of being able to identify truth from falsity.
Thoughts on the Nature of Fear
Synopsis: A short, candid look at fear, and why
unwarranted fear is so destructive. Also includes the proper response to
Relevance: The article helps to show that fear is the opposite
China & Imago Viva Dei
Synopsis: The phrase means in the image of the
living God. The Taoists were open minded men who believed in intellectual
responsibility, the Tao, the way of reason. That principle allowed them
to build a thriving civilization with a huge population, a civilization that
was advanced culturally and scientifically.
Perspective on Fundamental
Synopsis: A rather extensive and complete list
of the argument techniques that are used to blur or distort the truth, along
with the fundamental example of hypocrisy.
Relevance: This list should be taught and prominently featured
in our academies and universities.
It is not philosophers—the seekers of wisdom—but academic personnel,
the clergy, and politicians that are largely in control of three of
the most powerful or influential facets of our society: education,
religion and government. A philosopher analyzes and rebuts structuralism.
Relevance: This is a system of false premises, and needs to be
The Philosopher Schopenhauer
Synopsis: At an awful time when much of Europe was devastated,
this remarkable philosopher had the courage to not only look inside himself
but to look on the dark side of reality and tell it like it is.
Synopsis: An article elucidating the issues surrounding
interdisciplinary studies and concerns.
Synopsis: A look at Thomas Jefferson and his enormous influence on the
founding of religious freedom in America.
Relevance: Highlights the issues and helps to put thess into
Psychological Barriers to Truth
4 Major yet erroneous ideas that are Barriers to Truth
Mysticism – God is the source of the mystical experience.
Inevitability – Physical degeneration, aging and death
Revelation – A lineage of designated authority or
scripture is the Word of God.
Equality – The transcendence of the Creator precludes
our being equal with that person.
Relevance: Addresses how these four things become barriers and
preclude coming to the truth.
Thoughts on Three Levels of
Synopsis: Consideration of the three levels of
volition and the implications for human life and destiny.
Relevance: The elephant in the living room is the overwhelming
evidence that our volition doesn't overcome or counter the vast
preponderance of factors that tend to control us.
Article on nature of Human Volition
Synopsis: You can put an adult in front of a classroom or an
assembly, and that adult can emit words with good moral instruction, but
don't expect much impact.
Relevance: That's because all this is based on a false model of
human nature. It's based on the idea that human beings are primarily
deciders. If you pour them full of moral maxims, they will be more likely to
decide properly when temptation arises. That's not the way it works.
Article on Free Will
Synopsis: Free will. "The more you scrutinize it, the more you
realize you don't have it!" is a quote. Is that really true? Are we nothing
more than sophisticated meat machines?
Relevance: Looking for the key to self control and destiny.
A Call to
Synopsis: An article dealing with the issues
surrounding self-esteem, where the author rightfully relates legitimate
self-esteem to two aspects: self-efficacy and self-respect,
and talks about how these can be developed.
Relevance: Helps us to get over mere "feel godd" self esteem.
An Analysis of Hypocrisy
Synopsis: From the widest possible survey of ancient Greek
literature the word
hypocrite refers to an actor or puppet, a non-genuine person, a person who
operating below or underneath the level of reality; and the etymology
of the word implies a lower level of critical thinking or judgment.
Relevance: An analysis leading to the way Jesus used the word
and what he meant.
Thoughts on the Ego Problem
Synopsis: Many books have been written on this subject, but
instead of seeing that our egos are naturally and ineluctably shaped and
wounded by the "environment" that we develop in, many guru authors define
the ego as something that needs to be killed or done away with instead of
healed, fed wholesome spiritual food, and made healthy.
Relevance: The new and real explanation of the
ego problem and a challenge to do something about it.
Synopsis: A study showing an appalling lack of
personal responsibility in the face of "authority" instructions.
Legitimate Spiritual Communication
Synopsis: Exploring the issue of the most
legitimate truth sharing style. Men are easily swayed by a well designed
psychological appeal to their prejudices, traditions, cherished beliefs,
senses and emotions, and that is the way of advertising, of hucksterism, of
mind control, of manipulation.
Relevance: But that is not the style of the still, small voice
Thoughts on Hedonism
Synopsis: Explores what hedonism is and why it
is less than ideal.
Belief System Arrogance
Synopsis: A candid look at the common arrogance
of people concerning their belief system.
Holiday Trivialization of
Good and Evil

meaningful, holidays and their rationale have been trivialized and

Synopsis: The morbid-minded argument concerning
the unacceptability of death for humans..
Relevance: Ernest Becker's argument concerning the results of
the denial of death.
Synopsis: A look at the differences between ancient and modern
legendizing and mythmaking.
Relevance: Improves the proper perspective of the nature and
extent of myth in the ancient writings.
Loss & Recovery of Self-Consciousness
Synopsis: We take self-consciousness for granted
and most people don't have a clue that it was effectively repressed and has
re-blossomed in modern times.
Relevance: Was Augustine the first person in
all of recorded history to fully embrace self-
consciousness? To contemplate this to be true is nothing short of
astounding, and has far reaching implications.
Synopsis: Article on the pronounced affect that
cosmology has on psychology in general.
Velikovsky's Introgenesis Thinking
Synopsis: Velikovsky's overall views and analysis of life and
its major aspects.
Relevance: Although the thinking on this site is incompatible
with Velikovsky in this arena, the article is included because it is thought
provoking and well worth reading.
Sacrifice and Amnesia
Synopsis: We did not forget the world falling out of control,
but remembered these events to the point of obsession. The entire sweep of
ritual activity at the dawn of civilization shows a preoccupation with the
dramas of creation, destruction and renewal. Ritual practices were, in fact,
a deliberate exercise in remembering. But this preoccupation, expressing a
sense of universal rupture, could only foster a *forgetfulness* at the
deepest level of human awareness - that level at which one recognizes the
kinship of all life, the brotherhood of man, the unity of creation.
Relevance: A big part of the picture as to what is really going
on with Mankind.
The Empty Mirror
Examples of Cults
20 Questions About
What a God Is
Synopsis: These questions deal with how we define and characterize the proper
concept of God, showing that the traditional thinking misses the point.
Basic Questions for Theology
Synopsis: Sometimes questions are better than answers, and here is a
compilation of questions that need better answers.
The Meaning of Sin Issues
Synopsis: Bible translators and theologians have overlooked the then current
meaning of the word Jesus most commonly used for sin, and let the apostle
Paul define it as transgression of the law.
Relevance: The proper definition and understanding of sin
changes everything in our theological thinking about what Jesus was REALLY
Article on Something Meaningful
Synopsis: A candid look at why the term "Creator" must be decoupled from the term
"God" before we can start to deal with what is meaningful.
The Problem of Evil
Synopsis: There have been a lot of arguments that the existence
of God and the existence of evil are incompatible, and many arguments that
attempt to reconcile the two. One solution that has been proposed is that
evil doesn't exist.
Relevance: All of this is very shallow, since the arguments
take place within the arena of the traditional paradigm of god, and wherein
an adequate definition of evil is not even provided.
What About Death?
Synopsis: Some plain talk about Eros and Thanatos, fulfillment and
death, the two basic things—one positive, the other negative—that motivate people.
The Criteria for Good News
Synopsis: We've heard a lot about the "Good News", but what make it so good?
Article looks at the legitimate criteria for the "news" to actually be good.
On Credibility of the Resurrection
Synopsis: A masterful article looking at pertinent information concerning the
credibility of this being tangible, historically real.
The Afterlife and Physicality
Synopsis: Without physicality there is no manifestation of spirituality. Jesus
affirmed our having bodies in every meaningful way.
Empowerment versus Natural
Synopsis: A consideration of some kind of balance between the two in a healed
reality, showing that having both is ideal.
The Value of Idealism
Synopsis: Why are we cursed with this syndrome of idealism and
all but compelled to seek it or make it happen? Wouldn't it be good or
efficacious to eliminate or at least subdue the influence of our idealism?
Relevance: Idealism is the crux or the foundation for all that
is good: for honesty, honor, courage, compassion, mercy, nobility, etc. Without the
undergirding of idealism all of these virtues would be vitiated.
The Traditional Advent Fallacious
Synopsis: The collection of all the verses in the Gospels that are interpreted as
to refer to the traditional Second Advent, including the key Greek words and
Relevance: For centuries most of Christendom has been expecting
something that is NOT going to happen. It is long past time to understand
how this fallacy has taken hold, and to correct the vision of how the defeat
of evil on earth will really happen.
Synopsis: Spiritual growth happens naturally WHEN we become spiritually
alive and ingest the proper spiritual food, i.e., the message of the great
Relevance: The focus should be on spiritual nutrition, not
Synopsis: Sometimes Jesus talked about our brothers and
sometimes about our neighbors, but brother and neighbors are NOT the same.
"Born Again" and Nicodemus
Synopsis: A close look at the visit of Nicodemus account and the
words of Jesus concerning being "born again".
Relevance: A different and more meaningful interpretation of
what Jesus was saying to Nicodemus
Rich Young Ruler Account
Synopsis: A completely new take on what transpired, what was offered, and
what was missed.
Relevance: The article deals with the major issue of what God
wants from us, and what He is offering.
A Study on "Take Up Your
Synopsis: This phrase has been badly translated and interpreted, and the article
give good reasons for considering a much better understanding.
Christianity and Gnosticism
Synopsis: Some observations on the comparison of Christianity and
Gnosticism, the other branch of religion that developed from the Jesus
Gospel of Thomas is not Gnostic
Synopsis: Excellent quotes on why the conclusion that the Gospel of Thomas
is Gnostic is a shallow one.
On Determinism and Foreknowledge
Synopsis: One of the most pernicious doctrines in Christian theology is the
teaching that god knows everything down to the minutest detail that will
ever happen in the future.
Question of Blame and Guilt
Synopsis: Virtually every Christian denomination and sect lays
a burden of guilt upon its members, some a very heavy burden. Under this
widespread approach we are made to feel guilty for our ego problems and all
the attendant behavior that we use as coping mechanisms. Of course, we are
made to feel guilty about our erotic dimension, and this can be VERY
powerful and destructive. Some even go so far as to make one guilty—in the
eyes of the ever watching "Lord"—of eating between meals, dressing in a
displeasing manner, and even thoughts that come unbidden, etc., ad nauseam.
Relevance: We should all easily see that fear and guilt are
powerful motivators, and that those hawking products and services on
television use a fair amount of these. What is also true is that these are
the time honored tools of evangelists, preachers and proselytizers.
Why is God not More Involved?
Synopsis: A frank look at the evidence that God is not significantly involved in
the affairs of the world or Mankind.
Major Theological Issue
Synopsis: 29 major Christian Dogmas or Doctrines contradicted
or not espoused
by the J-person where there is significant reason to believe differently.
Relevance: If these—any or all—are misguided, there is great
reason to rethink everything. Maybe that will lead to something other than
waiting for 2000 years?

Personal Relationship with God
Synopsis: A simple and direct challenge to the idea of us having a personal
relationship with Jesus.
The Awareness Level of "God"
Synopsis: A square look at the traditional doctrine that Jesus is up in Heaven
watching everything that we do.
The Agonizing, Praying
Synopsis: One sub-paradigm that is being
proposed by the IFISEEUS site is that "God" the Father is the corpus of
unfallen children (humans) in the greater universe, a universe over which
the Originator has delightfully ceded control to them. Jesus is sometimes
portrayed in the Gospel accounts as often withdrawing from earthly human
contact and agonizingly praying throughout the night. Christians assume that
he was seeking solace and strength from God to assuage his loneliness,
disappointment and frustration in dealing with the people, disciples and
others, with whom he was interacting.
Relevance: We should understand this activity of Jesus in a
more appropriate and meaningful way.
A perspective on Martyrdom
Synopsis: Dying for some other person's agenda, plan, will or
other external value or factor, or for that which you have been programmed
is martyrdom. We are not called to martyrdom.
Relevance: Explains that martyrdom is not part of Jesus' plan
for us, and why it is always a sign of misunderstanding.

Synopsis: An extensive list of major issues and how the true believer
and the traditional believer differ in their attitude, approach and
Waiting for Godot
Synopsis: Samuel Beckett's acclaimed play is pretty clearly aimed at Christians
waiting for the Lord to come and solve all of their problems.

Synopsis: This is a direct challenge to the doctrine of the second Advent or
Synopsis: The Nicene Creed, the foundation for Greek and Roman Catholic, and
general Orthodoxy is thought to be bedrock for Christendom.
Destiny of Man article
Synopsis: Man is not destined to achieve "singularity" or
"oneness"—that is, to absorb deity or be absorbed by deity. Man is not
destined to become a demigod or demiurge (a lesser god). Man is not
destined to endure repeated or cyclical reincarnations. Nor is man destined
for extinction or oblivion. Rather, through the presence of the risen
Christ, man is destined to become truly and fully human in collegial
fellowship with the human God and in relationship with all other human
beings, with oneself and with the universe.
The Gift of Miracles
Synopsis: What IS being dealt with here are the aspects and
issues surrounding the benevolent intervention of God in human affairs
today. The author believes that such benevolent interventions take place
ONLY in the life of the person who has put his life in the hands of God to
be led in seeking the truth and who is committed to believing the best
rational, logical, and reasonable vision of God that can come to his mind.
Relevance: Makes the case that most "Miracles" are a sham.
Site Theology ABCs
Synopsis: An article that delineates some of the basic questions and issues that a
proper theology must answer.
Who WAS Jesus?
Synopsis: Lays out the paradigm of creation and passion play in
all its glory.
Relevance: Explains why the relationship of Jesus to the Father
and the Holy Spirit is crucial to fully understand what was at stake in his
coming to earth, living and dying down here.
Origin and Creation Issues
Violence of Nature
Synopsis: A candid look at the violence of
nature and its implications for ultimate issues.
Meaning of Evolution
Synopsis: Is it really true that "all life on
Earth has developed by evolution"? Yes, no, and maybe. It depends on what
meaning you assign to the protean word “evolution”.
Synopsis: An interview of Michael Cremo, the author of
Forbidden Archeology and Forbidden Archeology 's Impact, who lays out a case
with archeological evidence thatcurrent man is not at the pinnacle of
evolution, but has devolved from a previous higher state.
Relevance: The author of the IFISEEU site has not adopted the paradigm
proposed in the text nor the evolutionistic or uniformistic aspects of the framework,
but finds the study of the larger, more valid picture of human devolution and
the archaeological information that Cremo brings to be worthwhile. Indeed, the
extreme "Brahmanic" paradigm outlined by Cremo could be construed to be an example
of perverse human imagination run wild, yet accepted and believed by several
hundred million people on earth. The interview gives valid evidence and stark testimony
to the confusion and perversity that abounds in the fields of archeology and

meaning you assign to the protean word “evolution”.
Mebane on Polygenesis
Synopsis: This Greek word originally denoted the
hypothesis that all life has descended from more than one original
ancestral species. We have recently discovered that, even for the simplest
microbes, Darwin’s "monogenesis" turns out to be impossible to verify.

The "No Eight" Pattern
Synopsis: A look at a very curious pattern of
Sanskit-Indo-European languages showing that the word for night is a
combination of the words "no eight", and a simple and stunning explanation
Origin of "Star" Words
Synopsis: Throughout the whole range of the
Indo-European language group, the words for star are cognate, starting (!)
with the Sanskrit 'star' . It is clear that these words are also cognate
with many of the names (Ishtar, Astarte, Asherah, Ashteroth) of the goddess
identified with the planet Venus. The radiant Venus was at one time the only
star-shaped light visible in the sky, and the star-words may be derived from
the proper name rather than vice versa.
Synopsis: A look at many and varied word
patterns surrounding the root words "star", Mars, Ares, Venus, Innanna,
Saturn, El, and Chronos.
Synopsis: The languages familiar to us cannot be
traced back to, or will not point back to, any systematic language prior to
the polar configuration. Article by David Talbott.
Synopsis: An article about Egyptologists finding
earliest use of an alphabet in a Semitic script with Egyptian influences.

of Plasma Discharge
Synopsis: What do oriental carpets, craters and
rilles, ancient mythology, rock art have to do with each other? Along with
others they are all pieces of evidence in a composite picture of catastrophe
in ancient times, and they are all related to plasma configurations seen in
Memories of Squatter
Synopsis: Many symbolic patterns around the
world can now be seen as variations of the global "squatter man" or "stick
man" first documented by plasma scientist Anthony Peratt. They are stylized
derivations of a plasma discharge configuration seen in the ancient sky.
Synopsis: This symbol is a stylized version of
the "squatter man" and is related to longevity because this plasma discharge
formation lasted the longest in the series seen in the ancient sky.
Astral Origin of Symbols
Synopsis: The powerful symbols that were
produced in the sky during the end-phase of the Golden Age include all the
major religious ones—the cross, swastika, star of David, yin yang,, star and
crescent, the Ankh—and many others that are global in scope.
Origin of Modern Geology
Synopsis: Indeed, what is extraordinary about
the London Geological Society is that none of the original members were
geologists. This is the group that introduced the pillars of modern
Geological theory of gradualism, uniformism, and evolutionism. This was done
clearly in an effort to defang the oppressive "moral" influence of the
Church of England by discrediting creationism.
Origin of Grand Canyon I,
Origin of Grand Canyon II
Synopsis: I-The surface of the earth presents
many problems for geologists, not the least of which is that the Grand
Canyon is supposed to have been formed by the Colorado River. As recently as
about a dozen and a half years ago geologists were working with four
different and mutually exclusive models of the canyon's creation. At a
special meeting they managed to winnow the four theories down to two—neither
one of them satisfactory—with more than one reason to refute them both. One
geologist noted that the only way the Colorado River could have carved the
canyon is if it came out of the sky!
II-The Grand Canyon's tributaries are generally short with little evidence
of the necessary water flowing into the ends from the high desert floor. The
jagged tributaries are deeply cut and are characterized by nearly vertical
walls. They join the main canyon at right angles, a distinctive sign of
electric discharge phenomena.
Relevance: The canyon overwhelmingly indicates an Electrical
Discharge machining formation, and the dates assigned to it are meaningless.
It serves as a model for many or most of the world's river valley systems as
being electrical scars in the first place.
Great Chicago Fire I,
Great Chicago Fire II,
Great Chicago Fire III
Synopsis: One of the most striking climate
changes of the past 11,000 years caused the abrupt desertification of the
Saharan and Arabia regions midway through that period. The resulting loss of
the Sahara to agricultural pursuits may be an important reason that
civilizations were founded along the valleys of the Nile, the Tigris, and
the Euphrates. Green glass found in the Sahara and at Hadley's Rille on the
Moon gives a clue. A Wal Thornhill article.
Niagara Falls Escarpment
Synopsis: The Niagara Escarpment can be seen as
being part of a larger system of electrical scarring. The articles details
why the prevailing explanations are not valid.

A case for Atlantis
Synopsis: An attempt to look at all the relevant passages from
ancient literature from the various cultures around the world that refer to
Atlantis or to which can be construed as Atlantis. The conclusion that
Atlantis was the region or islands of Indonesia is too narrow.
Relevance: Like so many other articles this one
contains a wealth of information, most of which is valid, and which with
some caveats can be put into proper perspective. It is useful or helpful to
understand that the term "Atlantis" was used by the ancients to refer to the
previous "world" or aspects of it as it was during the Golden Age, and not
to refer exclusively or generally to a certain geographical locale. Thus
"Atlantis" when sought as a literal region or territory on the globe is

Relevance: Published about 30 years after Worlds in
Collision first broke upon the academic world like a tsunami, these journals
get credit for a renewal of interest in recent astral or planetary
catastrophism and the whole incredibly sordid "Velikovsky Affair." Many of
the artcles show that "Scientism" is the new, prevailing, yet false religion

Cosmology and Psychology
Synopsis: Somewhere between the infinite reaches of outer
space—the Cosmos—and the labyrinthine recesses of the human mind—the Cosmos
Within—lie two of Mankind's most profound psychological and emotional
creations—Myth and Religion. Together, they have served man's basic need to
bridge the known and the unknown, the finite and the immeasurable, the
tangible and the intangible.
Relevance: The significance of the origin of myth and religion
remains for most scholars tantalizingly elusive and continues to provide one
of the most intriguing problems in the study of man; yet it is of the utmost importance.
Phobia, Amnesia, and Psyche
Synopsis: It is a psychological phenomenon in the life of
individuals as well as whole nations that the most terrifying events of the past
may be forgotten or displaced into the subconscious mind. As if obliterated are
impressions that should be unforgettable. To uncover their vestiges and their
distorted equivalents in the physical life of peoples is a task not unlike that
of overcoming amnesia in a single person.
Relevance: Mankind is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder, guilt, denial, and amnesia due to the catastrophes of the past.
Psychological healing cannot take place until these issues are remembered and addressed.
Catastrophe, Collective Trauma
Microcosm to Macrocosm
Synopsis: Two events of the mid-twentieth century—the birth of
the Atomic Age and the revelation of cosmic catastrophes in historical times—have
caused and should cause mankind to reassess his terrestrial position and chances
of survival. The article contains a review of the salient aspects of the atomic
development and destruction rained down on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Relevance: A look at the fearful symmetry of astral
catastrophism and the atomic warfare that took place.
Theomachy in the Theater
Synopsis: Drawing parallels between the ancient catastrophes
with their effects upon man, and the nuclear holocaust suffered by Japan and the
popularity of the stream of banal monster beast movies coming from that culture.
Relevance: So far as we are aware, no Japanese studio has yet
produced a film dealing explicitly with either the atomic destruction.
These are symptoms of cultural amnesia and denial.
Myth and Mandala
Synopsis: Recent information concerning the universal natural
development in children's art of the mandala design, a symbol identified
by Jung as a major archetypal motif of the collective unconscious, offers a
psychobiological alignment which may trace to ancient global catastrophe.
Relevance: In relating catastrophism to psychology and
particularly to the origins for unconscious motifs proposed by Freud and
Jung, Velikovsky briefly suggests that experiences of cosmic events may have
become embedded in the "unconscious or subconscious strata of the mind" and
from there continue to influence behavior.
Synopsis: It is widely known that the Aztecs of Mexico
experienced great anxiety each time a 52-year Venus-cycle neared its
completion. But what, precisely, was it that they were afraid of?
Relevance: In looking into this matter, we find enormous clues
as to what happened in the past and its effect upon the human race.
Synopsis: Those historians and social scientists who began to
realize that a universal and inter-related science of man was becoming a
necessity of thought, if the nature of man was ever to be known, found that
Giambattista Vico had made precisely this claim two centuries before. Vico
insisted that, if a full history and understanding of man was to be known,
the myths of earlier times ought to be taken seriously as themselves
accounts of the actual history of those times.
Relevance: This also Velikovsky claims, while standing on
the shoulders of many catastrophist researchers.
The Tao, the Way
Synopsis: The "Tao, the Way—the basic Chinese belief in
an order and harmony in nature is probably very close to what Western Man refers
to when he mentions natural law. This grand concept originated in remote times.
Relevance: This article sheds even more light on the ancient
catastrophes and their effects upon Mankind.
The Sin Control
Synopsis: Since uniformitarian scholars do not believe in
cataclysms and in the cosmic origins of religions, they can seldom catch a
religion at the precise moment of its inception, but are forever condemned
to begin their study at some point far down the line, after the
transmogrifications of time have converted the object of their study into a
Relevance: Our ancestors believed that it was through their
incorrect behavior that they had brought the catastrophes upon
themselves, and through this guilt comes the possibility of great
Sin Control &
Synopsis: A look at the Nazi holocaust and the connection to
the sin control
Relevance: Just as Velikovsky's ideas have come to be confirmed
by some contemporary data, it is also possible to validate Myers'
derivations on the origin and psychology of religion through the Nazi
holocaust—the extermination of the Jewish population of German-occupied
Europe, and the subsequent historicizing of this event.
The Star of Dawn
Synopsis: The Star of Dawn is merely a different designation
for that celestial object which has gone down in the mytho-historical
records of various ancient nations as the Morning Star, which entity is
usually identified as the planet Venus.
Relevance: An in-depth dissertation sorting out the issues of
Mars and Venus as the Morning Star.
Velikovsky & Catastrophe
Synopsis: At the heart of Velikovsky's thesis was a seemingly
outrageous idea. He claimed that planets, moving on quite different
courses than observed today, formerly disturbed the motions of the Earth and
caused great destruction to ancient nations. These extraordinary events,
Velikovsky claimed, are recorded in ancient chronicles, myths and rites
around the world, sources that are simply incomprehensible in terms of
celestial motions today.
Relevance: If Velikovsky was as wrong on the fundamentals as
critics would have us believe, then nothing could be more wasteful than
spending any time at all on the subject. But if Velikovsky was even close
in his discernment of planetary instability and catastrophe, he is one of
the true intellectual pioneers of the twentieth century.

Terrifying Glory of Venus
Synopsis: Observations concerning Athena's equation with the
central "star" of Venus depicted in the illustration. In this phase of the

Relevance: Article showcases ten testable mythical forms of
The Warrior Athena
Synopsis: The subject is the central "star" of Venus, seen in
the center of the gas giant Saturn, with luminous streamers radiating from
Venus to spread visually across the much larger sphere of Saturn. In the
previous article, "The Terrifying Glory of Venus, is presented a list of
mythical attributes attached to this unique form. It is the contention not
only that these forms are essential to the Venus or goddess-archetype, but
that no comprehension of the archetype is even possible apart from the
explicit contexts suggested in this illustration.
Relevance: Article illustrates a significant principle of
methodology in the proper interpretation of ancient mythology in regard to
the Saturnian Reconstruction.
The Birth of Vahagn
Synopsis: The pre-Christian Armenian pantheon was an amalgam of
various religious concepts drawn from among those of the people around them.
There was one figure, however, who was peculiarly Armenian; a national god,
as it were, known as Vahagn. In the Armenian sources which have come
down to us, Vahagn appears both as a national hero and as a god of war.
Relevance: Article sorts out the issues and shows that Vahagn
was not Mars but Venus.

Religious Big Bang
Synopsis: Article showing that the Big Bang is
religiously derived, and is a scientifically unwarranted paradigm.
Relevance: Steady-state theories and the growing universe of
Halton Arp seem to be incompatible with scripture.
Cosmologists: Wrong or Blind?
Synopsis: How could millions of intelligent, conscientious
astronomers for centuries have been so wrong?
Relevance: The premise is that cosmologists are not just overlooking a few details, they
are missing the entire picture.
Quasar in Front
Synopsis: One of the two major pillars of the big bang is
that redshift is proportional to distance.
Relevance: This is an example if a high redshift
quasar that is clearly in front of a connected low reshift galaxy that
violates that pillar fundamentally.
The Fingers of God
Synopsis: The big bang theory predetermines the size, the shape
and the age of the universe (according to the latest satellite data, it is
an expanding sphere 78 billion light years in diameter and 13.7 billion
years old.) Because astronomers believe that redshift is a measure of
distance, most of the distances of millions of galaxies, quasars, and gamma
ray bursts have been distorted into "fingers" that point to the earth.
Relevance: A different interpretation of redshift will imply a
much different universe. Halton Arp's research shows that redshift cannot be
a measure of distance.

the development of atomic weaponry and its WWII use.
Dent in Space-Time Fabric?
Nature & Definition of Space
Synopsis: New paradigm philosophical article on
the nature of what we mean by the word "space". Currently, "space" is
reified by scientist-speculators as an actual physical reality instead of a
mental construct such as zero or infinity. Article shows that space is in
the universe instead of the universe being in space.
The Neutrino Aether
Synopsis: New paradigm
philosophical article on why accepting an aether is axiomatic, and why the
EU thinking is that it is composed of all but empty basic packets of matter
called neutrinos, with a vanishingly small amount of internal mass/energy

Synopsis: New paradigm philosophical article on
the concrete material support for "force fields", and a simple and elegant
explanation for why the force intensity falls off with some factor of
Relevance: Eliminates the mysticism surrounding force fields
and provides a conceptual model of how they work.
Stars: Nuclear or Electric?
Synopsis: "The certainty that the Sun generates its prodigious
outpourings of energy through thermonuclear reactions deep in its interior
has been with us for about half a century." [Juergens 1979]. But, there are
many reasons to doubt this presently accepted theory of how our Sun (and
every other star) generates its radiant energy.
Relevance: There are at least five major things wrong with this
Big Bang "Science"
Synopsis: At the heart of conventional cosmology lies the dogma
of an electrically neutral universe governed by gravity alone. Without the
benefit of this dogma, the Big Bang hypothesis could never have achieved its
present prominence. And it is here that we see most clearly how, under the
necessities of funding, scientists are eager to “confirm” a theory that,
according to many critics, has already failed.
Relevance: It is apparent that fabricated good news is essential to
the funding of exotic projects.
Wings of a Butterfly
Synopsis: In the electric universe cosmology, explosions, dying
stars, and collisions are replaced by plasma phenomena for the production of
such beautiful and intricate structures as the Butterfly Nebula.
Relevance: Beautiful yet stark evidence of an electric universe
and electric stars.
The Bug Nebula
Synopsis: Plasmas in the lab
form cellular structures separated by thin layers of opposite charge called
double layers. The same thing happens in nebulas.
Relevance: Indicates that nebulas are plasma structures with
some form of the hourglass shape, not explosion debris.
The Bullet Cluster
Synopsis: Optical and x-ray images of the galaxy cluster named
1E0657-56 have provided direct proof that these clumps of disturbed galaxies
are small, faint, and nearby. These and many similar observations directly
contradict the foundational assumptions of the Big Bang, which place the
objects far away.
Relevance: These findings are incompatible with the Big Bang
Synopsis: In the 1930s, astronomers Fritz Zwicky and Sinclair
Smith were puzzled by the motions they observed within the Virgo and Coma
galactic clusters. Everything seemed to be moving too fast to be held in
place by gravity. So they conjectured that something they could not see was
exerting a gravitational effect on these clusters.
Relevance: Since there is no experimental or observable
evidence that dark matter exists, it is just a prop for the beleaguered big
Meaning of Deep Impact
Synopsis: The picture has
changed completely with the discovery of plasma and electricity in space.
But somehow, due to the nature of education and research funding today, the
original guesses about comets were permitted to harden into ideology.
Relevance: It is now well documented that every scientist
associated with the project was stunned by the energetic outburst generated
by the impact. The energy of the impact implies electric discharge from a
Deep Impact Anniversary
Synopsis: The Thunderbolts
Group proponents of the Electric Universe (EU) model predicted on December
6, 2004 that the Deep Impact mission would signal the demise of prevailing
comet theory. Extensive specific and detailed predictions were published on July 3, 2005
before the impact and these predictions and the results can be seen.
Relevance: Most of the
predictions hit the mark. This first anniversary of the Deep Impact Space
Mission is an appropriate time to cast a backward glance upon the state of
comet science and to contrast it with the EU understanding.
Electric Lights of Saturn
astrophysicists persist in describing auroras with meteorological metaphors
instead of seeing them in electrical activity terms.
Relevance: The discovery of
electric currents everywhere in space makes the meteorological vocabulary of
astrophysicists obsolete and inadequate.
EU Discharges & Scars
Synopsis: A universe that is 99% plasma requires a new vision
of electrical connectivity—galaxies, stars, nebulas, invisible
“double layers”—joined by webs of
Relevance: Such a universe also demands that we reconsider all
prior beliefs about the evolution of planetary surfaces and the nature of
atmospheric phenomena on planets and on the Sun.
Gamma Ray Bursters
Synopsis: While the gamma rays
are produced for only a few seconds, many of these events can be identified
by their afterglow in X-ray, visible light and radio waves. These are often
associated with galaxies at great distances. Astronomers describe them as
the biggest explosions in the universe.
Relevance: The estimated size
of a gamma ray burst depends on its distance from earth. Redshift=distance
makes some if not all gamma ray bursts impossibly energetic.
Synopsis: The apparent intensity of a light source decreases
with the square of its distance from the observer. If the distribution of
stars is uniform in space, then the number of stars at a particular
distance, r, from the observer will be proportional to the surface area of a
sphere whose radius is that distance. In an infinite universe, if we sum
(integrate) the light coming from all the infinite number of possible values
of r, the sky should be infinitely bright.
Relevance: Olber's Paradox is not a paradox at all if you look
at it correctly. It is yet another example of theoretical mathematics
applied incorrectly to a real world phenomenon.
Synopsis: There are a few things that
were “impossible” under popular assumptions that held sway through much of
the twentieth century. The electric universe paradigm is explaining these
Relevance: Theoretical assumptions
will always be a part of scientific inquiry. They ground what is thought to
be impossible. But new discoveries often surprise us with possibilities that
require different assumptions.
Local Group Galaxies
Synopsis: What can we "see"
about the Local Group of galaxies now that "redshift- equals-distance" does
not override observations? We can see that the Local Group stretches in a
line along the minor axis of M31, the Andromeda galaxy, which is the
dominant galaxy in the group.
Relevance: Observations show that the redshift=distance
hypothesis cannot be correct.
Magnetar Dream World
Synopsis: A magnetar is an invention derived from a computer,
not something actually seen in the sky. From 50,000 light years away and for
a tenth of a second, the most energetic burst ever detected momentarily
outshone the full moon. So astronomers asked a computer if it could produce
something like this extraordinary event using a model based only on the
forces of gravity and magnetism.
Relevance: The computer program hummed and churned, initially
constructing a picture of a highly magnetized and rapidly spinning "neutron
star" or "pulsar". To explain the rapid pulsations, the computer
extrapolated normal rotation rates of star-sized bodies down to objects
compressed to a few kilometers diameter. And it was programmed with an
additional unwarranted speculation. All of ths is mere simulation based upon
The Ornament Nebula
Synopsis: Gravity Universe proponents describe a star that
exhausted its thermonuclear fuel and exploded and blasted its outer layers
into a rarified interstellar gas, generating a spherical shock waves
formation. Electric Universe proponents describe an hourglass-shaped z-pinch
in a galactic Birkeland cable—a tubular configuration of current filaments
rotating around an axis, where in this case we are looking "down the
barrel". Such a configuration is the “wiring harness” of all stars, which is
Relevance: It helps to know that astrophysicists are looking
for spheres because, at that distance, everything looks flat to the human
eye. They don’t see depth, and it is constructed from the assumptions and
calculations of the prevailing theory. It also helps to know that they’re
looking for hot gas because, at that distance, they can’t stick a
thermometer into it. Temperature is constructed similarly to depth. So it is
with most of the other elements of the description.
Synopsis: Given that over 99.9% of the universe is made of
plasma, it is high time that we began to realize that plasmas are affected
by electromagnetic forces 1039 times greater than the force of
Relevance: If you don't know the basic properties of plasmas,
then you might not understand the
properties of most of the universe.
The Pleiades Problem
Synopsis: The Hipparcos satellite measured the distance to 50
of the brightest stars in the Pleiades and came up with a distance of 118
parsecs from Earth. Previous distance measurements—some based on
brightness— converged around the value of 132 parsecs. That's a significant
difference; about 12%, or almost 3 quadrillion miles.
Relevance: The question we need to ask is how the electric
currents of a cluster of stars are different from those of single stars.
With many stars to share a current, will the individual stars seem brighter
or dimmer than their non-clustered neighbors? Will the double stars in a
cluster orbit each other under the influence of a different gravitational
Arp's Quasar Ejection
Synopsis: A recently published study adds one more layer of
supporting evidence for Astronomer Halton Arp's model of Quasars ejection
along the axis of parent galaxies. The discovered association can only come
as another surprise to theorists of the Big Bang.
Relevance: More and more findings that challenge the assumption
Nature of Ring Nebula
Synopsis: The Ring
Nebula has long been a favorite object of amateur astronomers and has been
considered the prototypical planetary nebula. Until recently, the accepted
explanation for its appearance, based on the standard theory of stellar
structure and evolution, has been that they are actualy edges of spherical shells.
Relevance: The Electric
Universe explanation is that we are looking almost down the axis of an
hourglass-shaped plasma structure, and the density of the cylinder gives a
Seeing Red Review
Synopsis: With this new book, the Big Bang theory is seen at
best to be theoretical flatulence, at worst it is an indictment of academic
behavior and the way science is done these days.
Relevance: From this paradigm shattering data, Arp proposes
that the Universe we see is much smaller than advertised because high
redshift has little to do with distance.
Tornadoes in Space I,
Tornadoes in Space II
Synopsis: With the discovery
of Herbig Haro objects, or “jetted stars”, astronomers have scrambled for
explanations. But these stars, now observed by the hundreds, only accent a
common and fundamental misunderstanding of space.
Relevance: Astronomers express
great astonishment at such formations. Gravitational models featured in
twentieth century astronomy never envisioned narrow jets of anything
streaming away from stellar bodies. Neither gravity nor standard gas
laws would allow it.
Star Fairy Ring
Synopsis: The first fairy dances a fantasy of
Redshift-is-Proportional-to-Distance, overlooking half a century of contrary
evidence. That puts the ring far away. For the ring to appear as bright
as it does, a second fairy must dance a pas de deux of
Super Luminosity. To get that much energy from the feeble force
of gravity, a third fairy must support the others with the Dance of Great
Relevance: The mainstream explanation for this ring of stars is
Ring of Stars
Synopsis: Although black holes are entirely constructed from
theoretical assumptions, they are no longer questioned in conventional
Relevance: The plasma focus effect, which can be studied
in a laboratory, better accounts for the cosmic effects attributed to black
Search for Two Numbers
obsessive search for the two numbers—the Hubble Constant and the age of the
universe—is based upon an unwarranted assumption, i.e., redshift equals
Relevance: The Electric Universe paradigm makes these two numbers
Synopsis: A complex central
network of filamentary structure spirals down to the center of the galaxy.
Astronomers say it provides new insights into super-massive black holes.
Relevance: It is more likely
that it demonstrates electrical effects instead of a black hole.
Synopsis: A Wal
Thornhill article about the electrical parturition or fission model of
Relevance: This article posits a much better model than the accretion
Synopsis: More on the electrical
parturition or fission model of planet birth.
Relevance: More on positing a much better model than the accretion
Brother? James Ossuary
Synopsis: A burial box that was recently
discovered in Israel and dates to the first century could be the oldest
archaeological link to Jesus Christ, according to a French scholar whose
findings were published.
Relevance: There is naturally only a smattering of hard
evidence for the existence of Jesus and the basic historical validity for
the Gospel accounts.
The Great Pyramid
Synopsis: A candid look and review of the outstanding features
of the Cheops pyramid that cannot be readily explained by our current
understanding of ancient technology and capability.
Relevance: The implications of this article are that modern
man's conception of the ancient people is a mythical falsity. The modern
mythology is not prepared to understand the non-primitive condition of the
ancients and what took place.
In Search of Moses
Synopsis: An article by catastrophist researcher Ev Cochrane concerning
biographies of Moses and
reliable information about him.
Relevance: Careful research, analysis, and the findings or lack
thereof from modern archaeology have raised serious doubts about the
legitimacy of the traditional propositions concerning Moses.
Synopsis: Archaeologists have discovered traces of a huge and
elaborate wooden temple dating back 5,000 years.
Relevance: Evidence shows that it was
once one of the most important ceremonial sites in England, comparable in
significance to Stonehenge.
Chronology & Dating Material
Ages and Time Aspects
Synopsis: An article about the true nature of time, and what
the ancient people meant by the term "age". An age, similar to
what we call an era, is a block of time that ends when the world environment
changes significantly in terms of solar system/geophysical/ecological
factors, political, psychological and/or spiritual-religious factors.
Relevance: Clears up some of the major confusion about these issues.
Puzzles of Prehistory
Synopsis: Roger W. Wescott, one of the truly great thinkers and
scholars, looks at many puzzles of prehistory from a uniformitarian and a
Relevance: Wescott shows that things do not add up well under
Frozen Mammoths Problem
Restoration of Ancient History
Dark Age of Greece
Synopsis: Velikovsky's investigation into the
true cause of this so-called "Dark Age" ranks with the best of his work and
may well prove to be the most convincing A Clark Whelton article.
Relevance: Whelton explains that Velikovsky felt the imposition
of Egyptian chronology upon Greece forced an extra 400 to 500 years to be
added to Greek BEC chronology.
No Early Middle Ages?
Synopsis: The dating shift effected by the early
Carolingians strongly suggests that the lay population knew both the
apocalyptic meaning of the "year 6000" and its surmised imminent approach.
This is the context in which the Annus Domini took its place as the
third major dating system in the Church's struggle against apocalyptic
Relevance: Looks at the influence that "apocalyptic" belief had on
the development of chronology.
How Much Time?
Synopsis: Another look at the unwarranted assignment of
excessive amounts of time to Earth history.
Relevance: This is a big issue when it comes to building a world view and
sorting out the geophysical and archaeological issues.
Radiohalos & Earth History
Synopsis: The articles explains radiohalos, how they are used
in dating and chronology, and the associated problems with the science. A Ralph Juergens article.
Relevance: Historically, radiohalos helped to put the science
of geochronology on a quantitative footing. More recently, they have thrown
the entire discipline into disarray.
Psuedo-8th Century Palestine
Synopsis: Making mistakes in the writing of
history usually derives from a biased interpretation of documents and
artifacts and may also derive from fake documents and fake artifacts. Making
mistakes in the writing of history quite frequently has to do with the
recycling of stories, and this may result in a duplication of events and
rulers allowing for a doubling of chronological time. Making mistakes in the
writing of history—last, but not least—derives from taking genuine
artifacts out of their stratigraphical context. A Gunnar Heinsohn article.
Relevance: This is a piece of the picture that adds up to the
1st millennium CE being apdded with up to 730 extra years.
Ancient Israel Chronology
The Doubtful CE Chronology
Synopsis: It turns out that both BCE. AND CE
chronology are rat nests that have HUGE PROBLEMS AND ANOMALIES. Even just
focusing on C.E. chronology, EVERY single aspect supporting the accepted
chronology turns out to be just another lily pad in the pond that won't hold
the weight when we rely upon it.
Relevance: Exposes the frangible CE chronology that potentially
has been padded with an extra 730 years in the first millennium.
Synopsis: Focusing on Rome and the
Vikings, this is a partial yet convincing piece
of Europe's CE dating challenges from several different perspectives that
indicate a drastic revision is needed.
Relevance: More evidence and support for a 1st Millennium CE
Millenium AD Chronology
Fundamentalistic Chronology problem
Synopsis: An article explaining that once a date for a significant event gets
set, it is very hard for that date to get revised, along with all the other
Relevance: Explains partly why there is so much confusion in
Caral, Peru Archaeology
Synopsis: Researchers investigating a Peruvian
archaeological site say they have determined that it is the oldest city yet
studied in the Americas, with a complex, highly structured society that
flourished at the same time that the pyramids were being built in Egypt.
Relevance: The finding is forcing a re-evaluation of ideas
about the rise of civilizations in the New World, particularly how and when
ancient peoples moved from the coasts, which had reliable ocean food
sources, to inland settlements with less stable supplies of food.
Caucasoid Early Americans
Synopsis: In several western states and as far east as
Minnesota scientists have uncovered skeletons with Caucasoid features.
showing Caucasian inhabitants.
Relevance: Anthropologists are now envisioning a reappraisal of
prehistoric Americans with two waves of migration.
Solstice Light Boxes
Synopsis: It's been called a "lightbox," a
man-made ancient aperture in a tomb that accurately tracks the movement of
celestial bodies on the darkened chambers inside.
Relevance: The most complex of those discovered, the Irish "lightbox"
reveals "astonishingly-detailed astronomical knowledge of the ancient
Bible Flunks Archaeology
Synopsis: What if Bible accounts don't fit the
evidence in the ground? What if David's Jerusalem was really a rural
backwater — and the greatness of Israel and Judah lay far in the future?
Lately, such assertions are coming from some authorities on Israel's
archaeology, who speak from the perspective of recent finds from excavations
into the ancient past.
Relevance: Helps expose the mythical element of
Ebla Discovery & Excavation
Synopsis: The discovery and excavation of Ebla and its extensive library
allows a significant better translation of the Sumerian language.
Relevance: Affects Old Testament translation and chronology.
Mummified Dinosaur in Montana
Age Limits of Biosphere
Synopsis: Having a look at some geophysical
aspects that preclude the surface of the earth being more than thousands of
years old instead of millions.
Relevance: Eliminates gradualistic processes and opens the door
for catastrophic processes.
