A Metaphysics for the New Age

“Collective human consciousness and life on our planet are intrinsically connected.” Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose “From your thought springs your reality. From your ideas your future emerges.” Neale Donald Walsch, Tomorrow’s God: Our Greatest Spiritual Challenge   Thoughts become things. Radiate positive vibrations and watch the universe reverberate in kind; we create our own reality; think high thoughts and your world grows brighter; focus on the negative, and your fears materialize. Thoughts inside attract things out there. Tomorrow’s God will come down to earth and be part of us, as humankind awakens to find that its concept of a...

Philosophers Breaking Paradigms

Although few people study it any more, everyone has a philosophy. It could be a philosophy about the role of religion in your life, working hard, staying upbeat, or not caring about anything. Although science today is viewed as the dominant source of authority, science itself was born in philosophy, and it might be helpful to re-examine what philosophy means and how we can all use a little more of it in our lives. On this installment of Conversations Beyond Science and Religion,  I talk with internationally-known natural philosopher, Mark Ballabon, author of Courting the Future: Preparing for a Different World, and Why is the Human...

One World, One Life

My short piece, One World, One Life, will be featured on InspireMeToday.com on June 1, 2014. This organization seeks to inspire people with thoughts from people they call luminaries, who are actually people who put inspiration to writing; i.e., any of us. Many household names have contributed to this website, such as Sir Richard Branson (Virgin) and Guy Laliberte (Cirque du Soleil) to thought leaders like Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul) and Marci Shimoff (The Secret).  So now it’s my turn. This daily wisdom takes a minute to read, yet acts as a conscious reminder to  spark the fire within each of us: the...

The Real Scandal of Quantum Mechanics

In a short, but important, article in Nature magazine, Richard Conn Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at John Hopkins University, concludes that in light of the findings of quantum theory, the universe is entirely mental. Continuing this theme, Professor Henry, in a letter to the editor of the American Journal of Physics, entitled, The Real Scandal of Quantum Mechanics,  writes that the “real scandal of quantum mechanics is that so many physicists still insist on thinking about quantum phenomena with classical ideas.” Professor Henry is exactly right.  Quantum theory teaches that the physical world is not made of things, but of dream-stuff; yet, we still...

The Great Big Bang Cover-Up

“I have no need of that hypothesis.” Pierre-Simon Laplace (1749-1827) in reply to Napoleon’s inquiry of why  Laplace had left God out of his book on astronomy Our leading scientists are not disclosing all of the facts about what we know and don’t know about the Big Bang theory and are covering up evidence that the universe is in fact finely-tuned. Why is this important? Because a finely tuned universe leads to the conclusion that there is a mind or intelligence behind creation. This conclusion would then mean that science must evolve to incorporate intelligence into the scientific world picture. And I am not talking about...

Reversing the Copernican Principle

In his book, Farewell to Reality: How Modern Physics has Betrayed the Search of Scientific Truth, Jim Baggott sets out six principles that he believes should serve as criteria to judge a credible scientific theory.  One of these is the Copernican Principle, which he describes as follows: ” The universe is not organized for our benefit and we are not uniquely privileged observers.  Science strives to remove “us” from the centre of the picture  making our  existence a natural consequence of reality rather than the reason for it. ” In my interview with Jim Baggott on October 21, 2013 (Conversations Beyond Science and Religion) we talked...

And So We Patiently Wait for Science to Discard the Real World Out There

            ‘We all agree that your theory is crazy.  The question that divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct.” Niels Bohr Modern physics is at a crossroads. Since the time of Einstein, it has pursued a quest to unify the laws of physics using a naïve realist or materialist approach.  This viewpoint holds that there is a real world independent of the scientific theorist, that ultimate reality is a material thing (matter) rather than a mind, and that the mind has no influence on the world.  Most theorists likely assume that discarding the realist perspective is too...

News Flash: The World is Not Made Out of Particles

In a  recent article, What is Real?, published in Scientific American, Meinard Kuhlmann, Professor of Philosophy at Bielefeld University in Germany, breaks the news: the world is not made out of particles after all. This conclusion may come as a shock to the vast field of particle physics and the thousands of physicists working at the $6 billion Large Hadron Collider in Europe.  As Professor Kuhlman writes, “one must conclude that ‘particle physics’ is a misnomer: despite the fact that physicists keep talking about particles, there is no such thing.” Quantum theory, in fact, spelled doom for particles almost 100 years ago, but modern physics has not...

Is Intelligent Design Science?

On my upcoming radio show, Conversations Beyond Science and Religion, webtalkradio.net, scheduled for posting on July 29, 2013, I interview Professor Michael Behe of Lehigh University and author of the controversial book, Darwin’s Black Box.  This book, which the back cover says helped launch the intelligent design movement, contains a devastating attack on Darwin’s theory of natural selection.  We are conditioned to reject the intelligent design movement as unscientific (if not unAmerican) and to believe that the Darwinian camp, led by Richard Dawkins (of Blind Watchmaker fame), must be right.  While taking this stance, I would guess many people have not really  examined for themselves...
