October 25, 2011 – “Is There a Creator? Is There Life After Death?”

Belief, Consciousness, Quantum Physics, Spirituality 1 Comment »

On Tuesday October 25, 2011 we viewed two episodes of the “Through The Wormhole” – “Is There a Creator? ” and “ Is There Life After Death?” – presented by Janet Rowland.  The “Through The Wormhole” series originally aired on the Science Channel, and is narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Is There a Creator?” –  It’s perhaps the biggest, most controversial mystery in the Cosmos. Did our Universe just come into being by random chance, or was it created by a God who nurtures and sustains all life? The latest science is showing that the four forces governing our Universe are phenomenally finely tuned, so finely that it has led many to the conclusion that someone, or something, must have calibrated them. While skeptics hold that these findings are neither conclusive nor evidence of a divine creator, some cutting edge physicists are already positing who God may be. Some of the answers are as compelling as they are disconcerting.

Is There Life After Death?” –  Everyone has pondered the question that strikes at the core of our existence; Is there life after death? What happens to the soul after we die? People who have had near-death experiences claim to have visited the other side before getting yanked back into consciousness. Now some of the brightest minds in science are trying to understand how life can persist beyond the physical and what it might look like. It might be a quantum state based on the fundamental laws of the Universe. Ultimately, it is a journey that struggles to decode the most complicated instrument in the Universe: the human brain.

Thanks to everyone for joining us for “Is There a Creator?” and “Is There Life After Death?

October 11, 2011 Discussion – “The Mystery of the Sphinx”

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History, Megalithic Architecture 2 Comments »

On Tuesday October 11, 2011 we watched “The Mystery of the Sphinx ” – presented by Jim Patterson.  In this DVD hosted by Charlton Heston that originally aired on NBC in 1993, John Anthony West explored the exciting theories and discoveries about the most famous monument of all time, the Great Sphinx of Egypt.

Does the evidence of water erosion prove that the Sphinx is at least 10,000 years old?  How were huge 200-ton stone blocks lifted into place to build the Sphinx Temple and Valley Temple?  Famous American psychic Edgar Cayce predicted a hidden room called the Hall of Records beneath the Sphinx.  The seismograph found it.  What can it tell us?  Is there a vanished civilization?  Can the legend of Atlantis be true?

This DVD shared the geological evidence that rocked orthodox history and Egyptology!  Thanks to all who attended.
