    The origin of life

    I have to disagree. I see this as absurd in the same way that I see the story of Jonah in the Bible as absurd. But at least the story of Jonah living in the whale has some moral and culture value, as do all good myths and legends. I don’t think there’s good evidence for it. Not that there has...

    The origin of life

    Sheldrake said that this idea of evolution through mutation is losing steam in the mainstream ranks. I don’t know if that’s true or of hes overly optimistic. He states that the discovery of epigenetics (along with other issues) is causing this idea to lose momentum.

    The origin of life

    A bunch of random colliding particles (origin unknown) started colliding and began creating lumps of organic matter which spawned limbs and began thinking, on accident. Not once. Over and over and over and over again. When you stop and drop the a-priori assumptions and really think about it...

    Dr. Philip Goff, Will Academia Get Beyond Materialism? |409|

    Gordon White asked Rupert Sheldrake the question, “are we winning” and Sheldrake said “yes” during this interview on Rune Soup. And he Made several great and interesting points to support his position. More and more materialists are moving to a “pansychist” view of the universe. There is all...

    Alex Tsakiris and Tom Jump Debate Near Death Experience Sceicne |408|

    As much as I love science, and fully believe in the scientific method, I actually trust our conscious experiences more. All that we know is through our consciousness. We have to trust our experiences. I think it’s abundantly clear what’s going on with NDEs. And I don’t think the claim is...

    Animal Consciousness

    I only know of this incident. It’s a good piece of evidence if nothing else. It’s interesting, she states that she isn’t directly telepathically communicating as we might think. Rather she is communicating with the “essence” of the animal.

    Behe's argument in Darwin Devolved

    Totally. To me, Sheldrakes idea of “morphogenetic fields” are roughly analogous to the idea of “collective consciousness.” Which we are all part of. That’s how I see it anyways. It’s a directive and self aware, creative force of which we are all part. And this is what I think of the idea of...

    Alex Tsakiris and Tom Jump Debate Near Death Experience Sceicne |408|

    Here’s an issue I have. Skeptics have no problem accenting that the NDEs which they can debunk happen. What I mean by this is that the typical “I saw a bright white light and did such and such” can be debunked by saying, “it was some sort of a hallucination.” But the trickier phenomena are just...

    Behe's argument in Darwin Devolved

    I find sheldrakes arguments toward the idea of “morphogenetic fields” pertinent towards any discussion of the idea evolution. No doubt his theories are not right in all regards, but the data he cites is very strong evidence that some other force is helping to shape the formation of living...

    Robert Forte, The Softer Side of CIA Psychedelic Mind Control |407|

    I think it’s quite likely that it is too learn by experience. The example that OBE/Astral praciticioner and Monroe Institute teacher William Buhlman always uses is (paraphrasing), “you can read 200 books on what it’s like to be a woman in the 20th century in America, but that knowledge would...

    Robert Forte, The Softer Side of CIA Psychedelic Mind Control |407|

    Yea the ADC data tells us this and so does the reporting of those who practice astral travel. They generally report encountering deceased friends and family who are usually in human form and living lives with the same personality intact from when they lived on Earth, but with a different...

    I love this lady. She’s fantastic.

    Behe's argument in Darwin Devolved

    I’m of the opinion that the “accidental mutation” mechanism of theory is so popular because its the best they can come up with. And since they KNOW (a-priori) that there’s no intelligence behind the formation of the universe, what else could they believe? It HAS to be an accident, and since it...

    Dr. Jeffery Martin, The Finders Course Works, Sorry Haters |406|

    There’s so much airy-fairy wishful thinking going on in some of these communities. Some say that Hitler and mass murderers are “good souls” who are just “teaching a lesson.” Or, “negative spiritual entities do not exist, we just create them with our mind. Stop believing in them and they won’t...

    Behe's argument in Darwin Devolved

    Setting aside the data, I know this is a very unscientific statement and perhaps a logical fallacy, but I cannot escape the conclusion that this idea of evolution by accidental chance is impossible because it’s totally contrary to everyday experience and logic. It seems beyond impossible that a...

    Gordon White, Is Magic Outdated Tech? |405|

    I believe that those things might actually be significant in certain ways. Largely as it may help to facilitate confidence and intent. But there may also be something to them now that they’ve been accepted in a consensual psychological way by other practitioners. I read a book about lucid...

    Gordon White, Is Magic Outdated Tech? |405|

    Woul we be better off using a different term other than “magic”? Would it help us progress our worldview towards those more skeptical? Or, do we not care what materialists think? Modern day people are more open to accepting “sciency” sounding words. “Negative entitity” sounds more believable...
