    Claire Broad, Psychic Mediumship and Science |427|

    Interesting show. I was very much in tune with Claire's take on things. But i think she misunderstands the nature of hierarchy in this context. It is not an organisational one based on ego - but one of relative competence or refinement.

    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    Maybe David sees coherence through the fog of distortion? The NT seems to blend esoteric knowledge with almost petty ideological distortions that cannot over run the core mythos. Unfortunately so often the distortions are relied upon as authority and the mythos is ignored. I would think that...

    It is interesting, David, how you express this - "science has simply pushed outside the boundaries of what it knows". It has become not-science - propaganda driven by commercial, political and ideological interests. Truth is no longer the goal - but compliance and containment. That's a huge...

    The interesting thing is that many ardent Bigfoot hunters would also deny psi and the afterlife. The great propaganda victory of 'Science' has been to assert that it is the arbiter of the real - by which it means the material realm. It isn't. There isn't any argument about that that is worth...

    Mary Rodwell’s 3,000 Cases Suggest Ongoing Genetic Manipulation |423|

    I am trying to draw a distinction between this physical dimension and that other dimension that is not physical and is the source of causes which play out in the physical. I prefer to reserve 'spiritual' to mean individual expressions of divine consciousness in those dimensions. We have a...

    The crusades? Really? You have to go back that far? Come on man. Besides, the crusades can be interpreted, fairly, as a defensive action to protect Christians from Muslims.

    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    For me the NT is a fusion of myth and propaganda, so this is a fair question. But at the same time myth is rendered in distorted ways at times - to present it as original 'Christian' content.

    Mary Rodwell’s 3,000 Cases Suggest Ongoing Genetic Manipulation |423|

    I see a movement from the 'spiritual' [for me metaphysical] to the physical as a standard thing. We imagine and then make, for example. A BMW is assembled in cyberspace before it is assembled in physical space. That's why you see that "very get-things-done materialistically oriented" element. I...

    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    This is such a powerful problem. Take the claim that Christ Jesus is a literal historic character. That actually weakens his spiritual impact. He is far more potent as a myth. Yo make him a historic figure only if you are going to stake out and defend temporal territory that can have only one...

    Actually I don't think that. But do please remember the Crusades. But let's separate religion from nations and empires. It was Europeans who, in recent times, invaded Islamic homelands - to take their oil. The extent to which those Europeans were more than nominally Christian is an untested...

    Not at all. I actually like Americans. But if by the US you mean your government - not always, but I confess often. You may be okay with it, but you don't live out side the US. I mean its natural for the US to act in its own interests and I don't begrudge it that. But what it thinks is in your...

    Hi Andy I am no sure what 'cease fire agreement' you are talking about. If you mean the WMD allegations, you would have to appreciate that Iraq rightly saw them as ludicrous fabrications concocted by the US and the UK. I recall this event very clearly. It was of sufficient concern that the...

    Have I missed something here? We took Trump of line and now you are arguing climate?

    Sorry, Jim but I am missing your point here. Do you mean to assert that the fact that Trump has made statement in support of HBCUs should be taken as a genuine sentiment and not merely an instance of opportunistic and political posturing?

    But let's remember that Jesus as depicted in the NT is not history. There would be a benefit in creating a fiction that links Jesus to the OT if that link could give reason to circumvent new teachings. However, at the same time you would expect a Jewish radical thinker to refer to the bedrock...
