Problem – The big recent news has been the discovery of highly complex life forms (comb jellies) from 600 million years ago near the beginning of the life we actually know. Fire and ice are not the source of this complexity

With his upcoming reprisal of Carl Sagan’s acclaimed Cosmosdocumentary just weeks away, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s interview with Bill Moyers touches on science and religion as well. At the [16:50] mark Moyers wonders about religious people who are trying to find signs of the divine in all those cold, hard scientific findings. Like most journalists Moyers takes the […]

BUT … we are all denounced in the article as “temporal chauvinists” for expecting precisely what we were told in school to expect of allegedly Darwinian evolution—increasing complexity.

First, an excerpt from Dr. Herrmann’s personal history: I was associated with the occult from birth, but in 1946 when I was 12 years old, I suddenly became extremely interested in occult manifestations and simultaneously became, what is sometimes called, a “mental giant” – indeed, a child scientist.

Epigenetics means that hereafter research is required to determine what IS causing a change. All change can’t just be attributed to Darwinism, whatever the true cause.
Ways forward for quantum physics (ways that lead somewhere … not everywhere, anywhere, and nowhere all at once)
