Quantum physics provides a description of the universe that takes us past dualism into non-dualism, where everything is entangled as a unity. If physicists integrated this into their lives meaningfully, it would be a mirror of the understanding that esoteric spirituality has described for millennia. But instead, some call it “woo woo,” and they baulk at ideas like psychokinesis and telepathy – phenomena that are made theoretically possible by the implications of quantum physics.
Religion can appear to generate a caring community environment, like an extended family. It’s impressive – as long as you tow the party line. But it can all change in a heatbeat, when you find yourself no longer in the “in group.”
This is a video response to Earl Portland’s video “Imagine a world without religion.”
The follow-up to my video “Why I am not a Christian.” It’s not an either-or dilemma, as many assume.
Inspired by Bertrand Russell’s essay of the same name, I discuss what I consider to be the strongest argument against Christianity.
How can a Christian believe that God has a special plan for his life, when we live in a world where an innocent five-year-old girl can be kidnapped, raped, and murdered?
Discussing people’s propensity to believe amazing things without sufficient evidence. Healthy skepticism is essential, but don’t let it prevent wonder.
Is it appropriate (or possible) to forgive the murderer of a loved one? My second video on this theme, refuting common Christian ideals, prompted by the criticisms of YouTube user Matthew4Nineteen.
Why do bullies bully? Why do trolls troll? How should we respond effectively to their antagonism?
When should we forgive an offence – always? Is that possible? Is it even desirable? A complex topic.
Concluding my debate with an Evangelical Christian (YouTube user Matthew4Nineteen). Can you have meaningful morals without relying upon divine revelation to define right and wrong objectively for the human race?
How to construct and use a personal symbol as a means of empowerment and focus for your life. I call mine “The Dark Wheel.”
A total reliance on the physical sciences, to the exclusion of philosophy, is a shortsighted way of attempting to model reality. Science, like philosophy, deals with abstractions – only it’s not often realised.

I was recently interviewed by occultist Sin Jones, who was fascinated (but healthily sceptical) of my claims about psychokinesis:
