About this Book
In The Science Delusion: Freeing the Spirit of Enquiry (published in the US as Science Set Free), Rupert Sheldrake shows the ways in which science is being constricted by assumptions that have, over the years, hardened into dogmas. Such dogmas are not only limiting, but dangerous for the future of humanity.
According to these principles, all of reality is material or physical; the world is a machine, made up of inanimate matter; nature is purposeless; consciousness is nothing but the physical activity of the brain; free will is an illusion; God exists...
Who Built the Moon?
For most people the suggestion that the Moon could be artificial is about as sensible as saying that it is made of green cheese.
This is a perfectly reasonable response based on everything that we know about the world we live in, where there are just two kinds of objects: those that are here because the random forces of the Universe - that we call 'nature' - caused them to exist; or because they were manufactured by human hand.However super-rational our scientific community considers itself to be, there are still huge numbers of people who believe things...
Intervention Theory Essentials
In 1905, a 25-year-old patent clerk named Albert Einstein demolished the 200-year-old certainty that Isaac Newton knew all there was to know about basic physics.
In a technical paper only a few pages long, Einstein sent a huge part of his current "reality" to
history's dustbin, where it found good company with thousands of other discards large and small.
In 1905, though, Newton's discard was about as large as the bin would hold.
Now another grand old "certainty" hovers over history's dustbin, and it seems only a matter of time before some new Einstein writes the few (or many) pages that...

Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt
To the Egyptians and their glorious heritage

Sex at Dawn Source
About Sex at Dawn
Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality is a 2010 book about the evolution of monogamy in humans and human mating systems by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá. In opposition to what the authors see as the "standard narrative" of human sexual evolution, they contend that having multiple sexual partners was common and accepted in the environment of evolutionary adaptedness. The authors contend that mobile, self-contained groups of hunter-gatherers were the norm for humans before agriculture led to high population density. Before agriculture, according to the authors, sex was relatively...
