Philip Comella – The Collapse of Materialism

June 27, 2015

Philip Comella

Philip Comella discusses his book The Collapse of Materialism – Visions of Science, Dreams of God. Can human consciousness be explained by Darwin and materialist science? Does matter exist outside of the mind, with no rationale or direction, the universe created completely by chance? Since ancient Greece, materialists have held that there is no room for purpose or design. We exist in a random and unconscious universe that has evolved through natural selection. However, a very different view of the universe and its creation has co-existed with the materialist point of view. In this version, the universe is the creation of a powerful and purposeful mind, one that exists outside of matter and is, in fact, the creator of matter. For millennia, these two opposing viewpoints have clashed, often with catastrophic results.

In The Collapse of Materialism, Comella proposes a profound shift in the way that we look at the exchange of beliefs between these two domains. Envisioning the end of the mechanical scientific worldview as it is currently taught, the author believes that civilization may be at the beginning of a new epoch, a time of great spiritual awakening with humanity transcending to a higher truth, one that unifies the now colliding cultures of science and religion.

Courtney Brown – Aliens On Iapetus

June 11, 2015

Courtney Brown 6

Courtney Brown discusses The Farsight Institute’s latest project Aliens On Iapetus. This remote viewing documentary focuses on what appears to be a huge set of structures on the surface of Iapetus, a moon of Saturn. The apparent structures are clearly visible in a photograph that was taken by the Cassini space probe that still orbits Saturn. We now know what these things are, who built them, and why. We also know what happened to those who stayed there, and how they died. This was not a military outpost, not a spy base, nor an industrial or mining location. It is actually more amazing than anything anyone could have imagined.

Susan Martinez – Delusions in Science and Spirituality

May 16, 2015

Susan Martinez

Susan Martinez discusses her latest book Delusions in Science and Spirituality – The Fall of the Standard Model and the Rise of Knowledge from Unseen Worlds. What if science and society’s most cherished theories, taught as fact, were actually wrong? What if the anomalies that disprove these theories were covered up and distorted, and any serious challenges brushed off as lunacy, hysteria, pseudo-science or conspiracy? In this primer in deprogramming, Martinez reveals the disinformation at the root of mainstream consensus thinking. She punches gaping holes in the established theories of the Big Bang, Darwinian evolution, ice ages, and global warming. Drawing on the ancient science of the unseen and some of the most advanced thinkers in astrophysics, she explains a new ‘Theory of Everything’ to replace the standard model.

Christopher Knight – God’s Blueprint

May 11, 2015

Christopher Knight

Christopher Knight discusses his latest book God’s Blueprint: Scientific Evidence that Earth was Created for Humans. God’s Blueprint puts the idea of God on trial. Whilst the issue has been hotly disputed over recent generations with scientists on one side and theologians on the other, evidence either way has been thin on the ground. Faith – belief without evidence – has been the basis for the world’s major religions. Most scientists reject the notion of God because they require factual, empirical evidence in order to accept any proposition as being real. However, new information is emerging which appears to suggest that there is underlying intelligence and purpose within the universe.

Richard Heinberg – Afterburn: Society Beyond Fossil Fuels

May 2, 2015

Richard Heinberg

Richard Heinberg discusses his latest book Afterburn: Society Beyond Fossil Fuels. Climate change, along with the depletion of oil, coal, and gas, dictate that we will inevitably move away from our profound societal reliance on fossil fuels. But just how big a transformation will this be? While many policy makers assume that renewable energy sources will provide a relatively painless solution, Heinberg suggests instead that we are in for a wild ride; a civilization reboot on a scale similar to the agricultural and industrial revolutions.

The Alternative 2015 UK Election Special

April 27, 2015

Andy Duncan 3

Andy Duncan discusses the 2015 UK General Election and the wider political scene past, present and future. Like many political systems around the world, UK politics is deeply divided and in a growing state of disarray. Many feel that voting in the UK today has become all but irrelevant, and in future may achieve little more than cementing a series of incoherent, toothless and conflict-ridden coalitions. In the face of enormous challenges, we get little from the political class beyond predictable, undeliverable policy promises and outright bribes for special interest groups during arguably the most unpredictable UK election of the modern age. And yet many citizens still believe that their vote actually counts for something when in the vast majority of cases it rarely – if ever – makes any difference to anything.
