The follow-up to my video “Why I am not a Christian.” It’s not an either-or dilemma, as many assume.
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.
Video response by Nick Dutch:
I was recently interviewed by occultist Sin Jones, who was fascinated (but healthily sceptical) of my claims about psychokinesis:
My take on interpreting dreams, in light of reading C.G. Jung’s Man and His Symbols (also check out my detailed book review).
Christians often accuse occultists of brainwashing, animal sacrifice, human sacrifice, sexual molestation of children, ritualistic child abuse. When you consider the facts on both sides, this becomes the ultimate boomerang.
An in-depth examination of how psychokinesis works and the technique for generating a PK effect. This is my personal theory.
A viewer posed this question: “You believe that experiences and memories will deteriorate and be forgotten. So my question is, if they are designed to be forgotten how do you feel there is a purpose to our experiences and memories? Surely the experience of life is nothing if it can not be remembered or acknowledged?” Here’s my response.
Some deep thoughts about consciousness, the I-feeling. What is it? Does it survive death? Did it have a pre-existence? Do we have individual souls, or are we all one?
Non-duality is not a meal you can eat in one sitting. I recount the various insights and pitfalls in my personal journey, and a profound realisation it has led me to after four years of thinking deeply about consciousness, the universe, time, and the Infinite.
The experience of spiritual awakening – is it something real, or just a repackaging of what religion calls “salvation”?
To help promote I, Universe, I intend to dramatise a few of the chapters, presenting an audio recording of the book alongside relevant visuals. Here is the first one …
Discussing the idea of God from the perspectives of monotheism (God is a being), pantheism (God is the universe) and atheism (God is the Big Bang singularity). What light does modern science shed on this age-old question, especially in light of the motion of galaxies and the nature of energy?
Christians are generally pro-life and atheists pro-choice. What lies at the basis of our moral stance on this issue?
What causes our most powerful instinct, survival, to backfire?
On Friday 25 March I was invited to be the guest on the Blog Talk Radio show Indigo Children Radio. The general theme was “critical thinking.” Over a period of one hour forty-five minutes, we talked about religion, atheism, philosophy, the nature of “God,” consciousness, psionics, the JREF million dollar challenge, UFOs, modern gurus, and more.
