Introductory Material

Site Material Claims/Disclaimers
Synopsis:   The home page of the site. Its content lays out the general but pertinent premises and claims about the source of the material, and also disclaims any supernatural communication like visions and dreams. Information  about the agenda of the site and how and why it was developed.
Relevance:  The author feels that it is always pertinent if not important before reading a book or an extensive collections of articles to understand the source, premises, claims, the agenda, the how and why.

Site Approach & Purpose
Synopsis:   Article deals with the author's approach, and purpose, strategy, tactics, context, and rationale of the site and lays out fundamental premises on which the site was developed.
Relevance:  Explains why a new approach is needed.

The Importance of Context
Synopsis:  In any situation or discussion context is paramount, but oftentimes an awareness of it is lacking, and this seems to be true for philosophical issues as well.
Relevance:  There can be no valid meaning without the proper context.

What is Truth and the Path
Synopsis:  Path or pathway implies a well worn, easily discernable course to follow, but that is NOT the case. Rather, a better characterization is that we all have to chop our way out of a jungle maze. But the way is goodly defined by narrow parameters.
Relevance:  We all face two territories, one inside of ourselves and one outside. In finding the path, do we first look outward or do we first look inward?

Article on Spirituality in America
Synopsis:  Article presents a very useful overview of spirituality in America, and the attendant confusion and miasma showing that there is good reason to dissever oneself from organized religion.
Relevance:  Portrays that it is a spiritual jungle out there.

8 Ultimate Issues Suggested Answers
Synopsis:  These major issues are listed as questions with commentary expanding the questions.
Relevance:  We need to come to some conclusive answers to these issues.

Do We Need a Fresh Theology?
Synopsis:  A fairly long article laying out further premises, context and questions to give a framework for why we need a different basic theological paradigm.
Relevance:  This is the centerpiece of the site, making the case for a thorough overhaul of traditional theology, especially our conclusion about the theology espoused by Jesus.

The reality of the Saturnian Scenario
Synopsis:  An explanation of why I accept the reality of the Saturnian Reconstruction of ancient times and the Golden Age.
Relevance:  The importance of understanding that this really happened in relatively recent ancient times can hardly be overstated. It provides the explanation for so very much, including the nature of our religions and culture.

Why Care About Myth?
Synopsis:  An in-depth look at the importance of understanding of ancient mythology.
Relevance:  Understanding ancient myth is THE pathway to understanding the human condition.

Enshrined Ignorance
Synopsis:  Some significant questions leading to information that our religious and cultural educational agencies fail to enlighten us with.
Relevance:  Some of this ignorance is due to denial, some to dereliction.

Definition Material

Key Term Definitions
Synopsis:  About 60 key terms used on this site that needed to be clarified and better defined.
Relevance:  Having good definitions allows us to have good spiritual vision without confusion, both to know what we are talking about and what others are talking about.

Mind Related Definitions
Synopsis:  16 Key terms related to the mind are defined and differentiated.

Intellect Related Definitions
Synopsis:  5 Key terms related to intellectual activity are defined and differentiated.
Relevance:  Looks at the meaning of rational, logical, reasonable and objective, both as a noun and a verb.

Definition of Life
Synopsis:  "We are a deeply confused and dishonest species?" We are, partly because we avoid definitions that would clarify the ultimate issues. Consider the term "life" and how it is used. We say things like, "My life is a mess right now" or "My life is on the upswing" or "Get a life". In everyday life we very seldom use the term for biological functionality, but overwhelmingly use the term to apply to the unfolding of the pattern, content and quality. Even when someone dies and we say their life is over, we are primarily referring to the spiritual reality of their consciousness and ongoing experience, not their biochemical activity or their physical, biological vitality.
Relevance:  The proper definition has enormous implications for good ethical decisions in many areas, especially for abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, conscientious objection to killing in war, etc.

Definitions of Ecclesia
Synopsis:  There is much confusion regarding these terms of Christian importance, and proper definitions are essential.
Relevance:  An Ecclesia, what Jesus had in mind, is widely divergent from a modern Christian church, and this needs to be seen and acknowledged.

Parousia, Apocalypse Definitions
Synopsis:  There is much confusion regarding these terms of Christian importance, and proper definitions are essential.
Relevance:  The Parousia and the Apocalypse have already taken place, and to look forward to these is just futility in ignorance.

Origin of the Soul Term Definitions
Synopsis:   There is much confusion regarding the term soul, and it is confused in modern lingo with the spirit, while being reified.
Relevance:  A proper definition is crucial to understanding living, dying, the state of the dead, the resurrections, and the Kingship of the Heavens.

Science/Method Definitions
Synopsis:    A short definition of the scientific method and an article describing what we mean by the word "science".
Relevance:  The core of the scientific method is doing the proper reality checks.

Human Condition Material

Our Human Context
Synopsis:  A look at the context of the human condition and how it should affect our thinking.
Relevance:  In any situation for decision or choice, context is paramount, but oftentimes an awareness of it is lacking, and this is true for belief and how we should then live issues as well.

Human Consensus
Synopsis:  It is estimated that there are over 100,000 different identifiable religions with some 30,000 versions of Christianity in our world today. What should be blatantly obvious is that almost no one, if anyone, is in a majority on any serious or significant matter or issue.
Relevance:  This cacophony of confusion is deplorable and leads to great evil and misery, including warfare that has engendered great anxiety and suffering, and has killed millions, and may lead to the demise of billions if not the entire race.

Synopsis:  A perspective or position is NOT the same thing as belief. Orthodox means right or correct belief. Celebrating diversity of perspective is all good, but there is one truth, and generally one best course of action, and unity, not diversity on these, is highly desirable.
Relevance:  At the end, conclusions and beliefs are what is important, and diversity on this level is tantamount to chaos and confusion.

Human Condition of Religious Diversity
Synopsis:  A significant article taking the widest possible global perspective on what has happened and the trend of what is happening.
Relevance:  The picture is deplorable and demeaning to the human race, and it WILL lead to aggression and conflict.

Why the Industrial Revolution
Synopsis:  An incisive look at why the Industrial Revolution developed.
Relevance:  An enlightening perspective for modern thinking.

Defending the Faith
Synopsis:  A major treatise bemoaning the "victory" of science over "religion". When Bryan Appleyard unlimbers his prodigious and insightful familiarity with history and literature, it is a marvel to behold, and it DOES help us understand the present. I recommend that it be read and re-read carefully until the reader understands the implication, scope and importance of what Appleyard is saying.
Relevance:  Appleyard shows that the new "religion" is scientism, which has marginalized all others.

A list of Questions for Humanity
Synopsis:  A list of questions with multiple-choice answers addressing major issues.

Current state of Academic Philosophy
Synopsis:   An incisive look at the state of and the challenge for modern philosophy.
Relevance:  The tragedy is that philosophy is now considered to be largely irrelevant.

Thoughts on the Fall of Man
Synopsis:  By removing the mythology, this article shows that the fall of man was related to a failure to choose to believe the best, not a violation of an ordinate instruction.

Garden, Fall, Restore
Synopsis:  An article on probable conditions during the Golden Age.
Relevance:  Portrays some eye opening developments.

The Third Story
Synopsis:  Somewhere between "God spoke, and it was so" and the "millions and billions of years" of gradualism is the truth. This Third Story, radically different from both the religious and the academic ones, listens to and is educated by our ancient ancestors giving us an account of planetary catastrophe.
Relevance:  It is the third story that is far more accurate and relevant, and it needs to be heard and understood.

The Evil of the Ordinary
Synopsis:  Sometimes the worst evil for a human being is when nothing much good happens, when a life is so humdrum and mind-numbingly ordinary and uneventful that we turn into little more than complex but habit performing meat sticks. The ordinary bad stuff always happens, but sometimes the really bad doesn't happen, but nothing much good or wonderful either. No ecstatic romance, no fulfilling relationships, no exhilarating success, no deepness of either agony or happiness.
Relevance:  Remember Thoreau's quote, "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation."

Essence of Koran
Synopsis:  All religions come with an instruction manual which explains how a believer should practice the religion. Some instruction manuals are benign to begin with and some have gone through a long reformation process which has turned them from malignant to somewhat benign. The Koran has not undergone any reformation process and looks today exactly as it did when it was written. It basically dictates that the entire world must be coerced into converting to Islam, by force of the sword if it doesn't happen willingly.
Relevance:  The Koran seems to undergird and help sustain a virulent religions that is in serious conflict with the Christianized Western world, which some think will blossom into WWIII.

A Personal Account & The Question
Synopsis:  A personal account leading up to the simple question and the simple answer as to why anyone would consider another person or entity as being God.
Relevance:  Identifies the only valid basis for deciding who or what is worthy to be called God.

Christendom Analyzed/Questioned

Critical Christianity analysis
Synopsis:   Pointing out just three simple rationales to question the validity of Christianity.
Relevance:  Gives an overall look at the framework of Christianity and an extensive lst of its failings.

Christianity & Hellenism
Synopsis:  An exposition of Christendom's roots in Hellenistic religions and their mysticisms.
Relevance:  Christianity has not only adopted aspects of Zoroastrianism and Judaism but has  also been contaminated with Hellenistic mysticism.

Religion as a Product
Synopsis:  Christendom is hopelessly infused—contaminated if you will—with ancient mythology and "traditional" thinking, structures, ceremonies, idolatry etc., that have nothing to do with the good news exposited and demonstrated by Jesus. This baggage, this framework, effectively precludes a reasonable consideration of the truth that he represented.
Relevance:  Looks at religions as a product and compares the surprising advantages of promoting it compared to a commercial product.

Perspective on God is Dead movement
Synopsis:  A look at the meaning of the "God is Dead" movement, its meaning and why it is relevant.
Relevance:  Nietzsche is given credit for starting or laying the foundation of this movement, and his challenge was valid and found purchase among the most reasonable theologians.

A study on John the Baptist syndrome
Synopsis:   Raising major questions about the status and the fate of John the Baptist.
Relevance:  Looks at why John the Baptist couldn't accept Jesus as having been sent by God.

Four Basic Questions
Synopsis:  1. How did we get into this situation?
2. Why is God not involved in a more visible and tangible way?
3. What can we do to change or get out of this situation?
4. Are millions of Christians making a huge mistake in begging and trying to manipulate God into answering their petty, mundane self-centered petitions?
Relevance:  These questions have answers that when found may lead us into a "promised land" far superior to what has been envisioned.

Christian belief tested - 20 questions
Synopsis:  20 pertinent and incisive questions for Christendom are posed.
Relevance:  In order to become much more than programmed meatstick victims of the human condition, Christians need to ask themselves these questions.

If Jesus was/is the answer, what went wrong?
Synopsis:  At the time of Jesus on earth, the Jews were looking for a savior of the nation, not of the cosmos nor even of the global world. They were looking for their Messiah who was to be a representative of God, and be a king on earth, and they had a short list of miracles that would qualify and verify such a person. But they had no concept that THE ORIGINATOR himself would come instead of some lesser Messiah. No matter what he said and did, Jesus was not able to break through this spiritual barrier.
Relevance:  The listeners at the time were unable to challenge their paradigm. They were looking for an earthly savior, a Messiah, NOT a visit and complete demonstration from God.

The Weeping for Lazarus Problem
Synopsis:  There is a HUGE problem with the traditional understanding of this incident. Did Jesus do Lazarus a favor by resurrecting him only to give him more chances to go wrong, or at best only to just die all over again?
Relevance:  What Jesus told Martha is ignored. Christian dogma seems to be able to override some of the plainest of statements by Jesus.

The Greying of the Prophets
Synopsis:  An article about how religions are now having to confront aging and dying patriarchs.
Relevance:  Some of these were not expected to die before "the end times".

Christendom Challenged

Impertinence of Preachers & Theologians
Synopsis:  A look at the insufferable arrogance of the "preachers" and televangelists.
Relevance:  Are ANY of these genuine, and following the instructions?

Comments on Doing the Lord's Work
Synopsis:  Are people that think they are doing the Lord's work doing just the opposite?

Common hidden Theological Assumptions
Synopsis:  These "hidden" assumptions really ought to see the light of day and be disposed with.
Relevance:  Much of Christian dogma, taken as "God's own truth", is nothing more that tradition and assumption.

Show Major Theological Issue Differences
Synopsis:  A list of 28 major positions of Christianity and why the alternative is more sensible
Relevance:  These are serious and significant differences, and the alternatives have intellectual responsibility on their side against Christian tradition.

Gospel of John - 4 Laments on the Failure
Synopsis:  Almost nobody is aware that the Gospel writer John, 30 to 40 years later, gives four laments in his first three chapters over the failure of the demonstration by Jesus to engender understanding of the truth, even in his fellow disciples.
Relevance:  When this is understood and accepted, it changes everything for Christian thinking.

Thoughts on Blessings from God
Synopsis:  A challenge to the idea of God blessing individuals, showing this to be a disguised form of hubris.
Relevance:  These "blessings" are usually exaggerated while having conventional explanations.

Maybe Things Jesus Should Have Said
Synopsis:   If Christianity is on the right ground or paradigm, then these are the things Jesus should have said to be compatible.
Relevance:  Highlights some troubling issues.

Martyr Stephen on Moloch's Tent
Synopsis:  The martyr Stephen knew that the "Tent of Presence" or Tabernacle in the wilderness was the tent of Saturn or Moloch.
Relevance:  Stephen was literally saying that Judaism was always a false religion.

Letter to a Christian Author
Synopsis:  A letter of response to a published article pointing out some key issues that were either ignored or misunderstood by the author..
Relevance:  More examples of misunderstandings.

Christendom Condemned

Children of God
Synopsis:  Exploring the concept that we are the children of God, and why this wonderful thinking loses its real meaning and power to inspire us toward the truth.
Relevance:  If a real parent in the USA treated his children the way God treats "his", he would be prosecuted and thrown in jail for neglect, .

Christendom's Fundamental Mistake
Synopsis:  It is hard to settle on the fundamental mistake but this one has to rank very high on the list.
Relevance:  Jesus has been mis-framed by Old Testament prophecy and by being considered as the Messiah, instead of being framed by the ultimate issues.

Christendom's other Major Mistakes
Synopsis:   Major mistake by Christendom, each of which are dealt with in the article.
Relevance:  A list of other significant mistakes that add up to a profoundly false religion.

The Twin Pillars of Christianity
Synopsis:  A critical look at the concepts of Peter and Paul being the foundation of Christianity instead of those espoused by Jesus.
Relevance:  Clearly show that "Christianity" is founded upon the traditions and ideas espoused by Peter and Paul instead of Jesus.

On the Subversion of Christianity
Synopsis:  An article showing that Christianity has been subverted right from the beginning.
Relevance:  Quotes from Jacques Ellul, The Subversion of Christianity, and analysis.

Christianity's Irrational Mysticisms
Synopsis:  Some major mysticisms widespread in Christendom
Relevance:  A list of significant mysticisms widespread in Christianity.

Mysticism versus Understanding
Synopsis:  One of the great or fundamental issues for philosophy or theology is mysticism versus understanding, mythos versus logos. The J person calls for our understanding of “God” as a human being. He equates that with salvation, as in, “And this IS eternal life, that they understand you and the one that you have sent.”
Relevance:  An analysis of mysticism in contrast to understanding and intellectual responsibility.

Christendom's Idolatry
Synopsis:   Not all idols are primitive and carved from wood and stone.
Relevance:  Identification of the essence of idolatry and a clear look at its extent in Christendom.

Christendom's Rites and Sacraments
Synopsis:  Premise: Christianity has developed and fostered new rites, ceremonies and sacraments as legitimate and necessary accessories to the religious experience and the spiritual life, but these are not founded upon any legitimate instruction or interpretation of what the J-person said.
Relevance:  A critical look and analysis of the major rites and ceremonies of Christendom.

Mysticism versus Understanding
Synopsis:  One of the great or fundamental issues for philosophy or theology is mysticism versus understanding, mythos versus logos. The J person calls for our understanding of “God” as a human being. He equates that with salvation, as in, “And this IS eternal life, that they understand you and the one that you have sent.” Where does he call for some mystical connection or loss of individuality or physicality? In HIS prayer, he asks that we may be “one” with god, but clarifies that as being in unity
Relevance:  To think that final success is some mystical, impossible to understand, oneness is to deny the validity of all other natural, normal, morally defensible desires and needs.

Confused Christian Terminology
Synopsis:   Four important Koine Greek terms that are mistranslated and confused in Christianity: Ecclesia, Parousia, Apocalypse, and Hypocrisy.
Relevance:  Understanding the true meaning of these Greek words will eliminate much confusion and false doctrine.

Bible and Canon Issues

Bible Mystique of Sacred Writings
Synopsis:  A critical and incisive look at the mystique that the Bible has in our society.
Relevance:  This mystique is essentially idolatry, and is a huge problem for coming to the truth and unity of belief.

Ancient Text Translation Issues
Synopsis:  The major premise is that the old, wrong paradigm of God skews the translation, which is already inherently problematic.
Relevance:  These issues must besorted out in a careful, rational and reasonable way.

Information on the Bible Canon
Synopsis:  Almost all Christians are compromised by an almost complete lack of knowledge about the Bible canon and its development.
Relevance:  SOME people have their eyes opened when they learn just some of this material. Understanding this issue changes the way we hear and use these ancient texts.

Valid Criteria for Selecting Gospel Text
Synopsis:  One of the challenging questions that is raised and that the believer MUST face concerns how it can be legitimate or be justified to select and reject what to accept and believe and what to discount or discard in the Gospel accounts concerning what Jesus said and did.
Relevance:  In one way or another, EVERYBODY selects and rejects Bible passages, so some valid criteria MUST be developed.

Visit to the Tomb Gospel Comparison
Synopsis:  Aspect by aspect, a comparison of this passage in the four Gospels highlights MAJOR problems and issues with taking it all as untarnished.
Relevance:  Helps to show that the Gospel of John is inherently more reliable, being an actual eyewitness account in contrast to the Synoptic Gospels, which are compilations of second, third, and fourth hand accounts.

Debunk of Forged Origins of the Gospels
Synopsis:  Dealing with an extreme and unsupportable attack on the origins of the New Testament.
Relevance:  Taking the unwarranted position of the article would completely destroy any credible foundation for believing in Jesus or a God worthy of the term.

The Jefferson Bible
Synopsis:  Driven by a desire to select what he considered the most attractive and authentic material from the Gospels, Jefferson pasted up 46 pages' worth of his favored passages. He took translations of the Bible from several languages--Greek, Latin, French and English (the King James Version)--and arranged his selections in parallel columns.
Relevance:  Jefferson understood that the final authority for truth has to be a man's internal reference point of idealism, and the US declaration of Independence reflects this when it states, "We hold these truths to be self-evident."

Dead Sea Scroll info
Synopsis:  The Dead Sea Scrolls, hidden away in Holy Land caves 2,000 years ago and unearthed after World War II, are often rated the 20th century's greatest archaeological find.
Relevance:  The chief reason for most people? The rediscovery of 230 texts of biblical books, which are freshly translated without being influenced by previous publishing such as the King James test, and which have begun to change details in the Scriptures read by millions.

Bible Scholar Feud
Synopsis:  Over the past decade a violent dispute has erupted in the ivory towers of biblical studies that has divided Old Testament scholars into two warring camps, neither of which is now on speaking terms with the other.
Relevance:  This at least shows that there are cracks in the accepted foundation for Judeo-Christianity, and that we need a better foundation for our faith.

Pentateuch 4 Sources
Synopsis:  What may not be as well known is that during the last two centuries, many Biblical scholars have concluded that those Biblical books known as the Pentateuch, are a compilation of four separate narratives, woven together by ancient editors, or redactors, to create a single text.
Relevance:  Again, this finding affects how we relate to and use these passages that are part of the foundation of Judeo-Christianity.

Bible Statistics Misuse
Synopsis:  Many books and websites list faulty statistics on the King James Bible.  Of course the number of books (66) and chapters (1,189) are fairly easy to count.  However when it comes to verses, words and letters, there are a wide variety of numbers floating around. These statistics, themselves untrustworthy, have become the playground for abuse.
Relevance:  Much mischief is done with the devisors of fanciful constructs by misusing Bible verses and statistics.

Gospel's Events Sequence
Synopsis:  We often order the telling of a journey by the impact and significance of the experiences to us. The sequential order seldom if ever rises to the level of being taken into consideration, by us or by the listener. So it is with much of the ancient history as it has come down to us. The telling of a story also depends upon to whom you are talking. We wouldn't tell the story in the same way with the same content to children as we may do to our intellectual colleagues.
Relevance:  We need to understand that the verses that indicate a chronology are noy infallible, and that this lack of a credible chronology has implications but does NOT really undermine the careful understanding of the message of Jesus.

Old Testament Allegories
Synopsis:  It may be that not only is the Garden of Eden story an allegory, which may have been developed early by the Akkadian and Hebrew mythmakers, but this may have set the pattern in a larger sense than what has been realized for that which followed. Whatever the case, the Old Testament is full of fabulous and wonderful allegories, some of which are included in the article.
Relevance:  Maybe the entire Old Testament history of Israel is an allegory with the very thinnest base in reality. This would have been developed over centuries following the original allegorical model and of course the false sin-breeding paradigm.

Inventing the Bible-Talmud
Synopsis:  This is a description of an historical model, presented through the device of personification. It will become clear as the argument unfolds why this model—this bundle of hypotheses—is an appropriate one in the present state of our knowledge of biblical texts and, indeed, that it has the virtue of being parsimonious, an unusual characteristic in this particular area.
Relevance:  Helps significantly yo understand how it all came about, and that the real God may not have had anything to do with the development of the Old Testament.

Editing the Bible
Synopsis:  A belief-neutral description of the processes that created the Jewish and Christian foundational classics (the Hebrew Bible, the Jewish literature of the Second Temple period, the New Testament, the Mishna and the Talmud).
Relevance:  Information and perspective that is badly needed by believers in Christendom.

Introduction to Gospel John
Synopsis:  A very enlightening description of the structure, tenor, and contents of the Gospel of John.
Relevance:  Introduces a new translation.

Gospel of John
Synopsis:  A new translation.
Relevance:  Into a new paradigm.

Jesus Teachings Material

Jesus on Faith and Belief
Synopsis:  A collection of all the passages in the Gospels where Jesus talks about faith or belief. Looking at all the usages is the primary way of understanding and translating the ancient languages and texts
Relevance:  We need to know what Jesus meant when he asked us to believe. We need to understand that according to him, NOBODY believed when he died. We need to see that very few have believed since, and that God is still waiting.

Jesus on Not Dying
Synopsis:  The following are crucial passages that Christendom either ignores or explains away by portraying them as applying to the next life. These are the promises made by Jesus of unending, everlasting life to be delivered imminently.
Relevance:  These passages clearly mean literally not dying biologically. Jesus is talking about this more times than anything else outside of the kingship of the heavens, and he is stating this MORE CLEARLY than ANYTHING else. The relevance is at the top, because this is the cornerstone of the real good news; without life we have nothing.

Jesus on Understanding God
Synopsis:  A study of the statements of Jesus showing that he taught that imminent salvation is equivalent to understanding the purpose, plan, values and character of God
Relevance:  Probably the primary or most basic requirement for a respectable loving relationship is for both people to have a desire and commitment to understand each other.  We are in the position of needing that kind of relationship with God, in that our alternative is to be on our own and just finish aging and dying, and yet religion down through the ages has made the soul or psyche of God alien, non-human and beyond understanding, so that we don't even try.

Jesus on Kingship of the Heavens
Synopsis:  The argument for this translation of "kingship" instead of "kingdom", and all the passages where Jesus uses the phrase.
  One of the very most important issues and studies, because the implications are so far ranging. A major piece of the paradigm.

Jesus on Resurrection of the Body
Synopsis:  Putting the implications of the resurrection into proper perspective. When it comes right down to it, the only reason for taking Jesus seriously at all is because he was resurrected. If Jesus had not been resurrected he would certainly have been lost in the dustbin of history and we would never have heard of him.
Relevance:  If there is no resurrection of the body, there is nothing to talk about.

Jesus - What to Do to Bring Resolution
Synopsis:  No message of salvation can be efficacious or complete without instructions about what to do to achieve or to qualify. The verses are gathered together for the reader to see what the man himself had to say. Having them all together helps get the instructions into into the proper perspective.
Relevance:  What to do is a crucial part of the bottom line.

Jesus on Parousia and End of the Age
Synopsis:  Jesus responded to questions with answers that show he was referring to four different ages: his current age drawing to a close, the next—our present—age, the following age of judgment and healing, and the final age of glorious eternal living in the kingship.
Relevance:  Makes clear what Jesus was talking about concerning the "ages".

Jesus had to Say About the Paraclete
Synopsis:  All the passages where Jesus talks about the Paraclete. A paraclete was a person like an attorney for the defense, an advocate, a oerson of significant experience and wisdom who was acting as a protector, one with whom you could feel secure and not be conned or falsely convicted.
Relevance:  There are two  important aspects that need to be understood: the nature of the agency and its role.

What Jesus Says About His Return
Synopsis:  A collection of verses showing that these remarks were all made BEFORE the crucifixion and the resurrection.
Relevance:  Shows what Jesus meant by his words of return, and why traditional concepts of the "Second Coming" are misguided.

The Lord's Prayer Teaching
Synopsis:  The content and its limitation, and even the format of this prayer, has significant implications and ramifications for the proper mindset and for what to pray for and what NOT to pray for.
Relevance:  Understanding this issue eliminates a lot of needless and misguided--and unanswered--praying.

Jesus on Sin, Fasting, and Praying
Synopsis:  A collection of verses showing what sin is and that fasting and praying will increase or harden the sin in us.
Relevance:  Understanding this issue eliminates a lot of needless and misguided--and unanswered--praying.

What Jesus Didn't Say Anything About
Synopsis:  Sometimes what is NOT said speaks with as much impact as what IS said. This list is very enlightening. Let's understand that Jesus was silent about one of the major aspects of the unfolding human drama. Because of its importance and seemingly foundational import, this absence can be considered as the elephant in the living room. Outside of a rhetorical reference to a personified evil, "That one was a liar from the beginning", He said nothing about either the origin of evil or the fall of man. How can this be?
Relevance:  An extensive and eye opening list of major aspect of life that Jesus did not say anything about, which implies his message was misunderstood.

The Parables of Jesus with Commentary
Synopsis:  Most of the parables found in the synoptic Gospels. Omitted are the more simple and direct analogies, objects lessons, and those that Jesus himself explained.
Relevance:  The commentary and interpretations given are generally not the traditional ones, but are compatible with the Gospel of the kingship.

The Aphorisms by Jesus
Synopsis:  A collection of the saying of Jesus that can be considered as aphorisms.
Relevance:  Jesus is noted for his aphorisms.

Jesus Aspects

Perspective on the non-Christian Jesus
Synopsis:  Books that are written about the J-person are written from a position that includes a variable mix of some of the underlying preconceptions of Christianity that dearly need to be challenged. Even though some authors try to clear the slate they have not found the way.
Relevance:  Article shows that Jesus would not be considered as Christian today, and he wouldn't want to be identified as such.

The Sterilized Jesus
Synopsis:  A frank look at how Jesus has been sterilized, and how that makes him artificial and unreal. Includes looking at how Puritanism has taken away a dimension from us.
Relevance:  The sterilization of Jesus has made him inot an unreal and alien being.

Comparison of Values Humanist/Jesus
Synopsis:  Jesus ACTUALLY tried to steer us away from trying to love God directly or tangibly. He is not now here in a physical form and consequently is not available to be loved tangibly. His words were, "By this shall all men know that you are my followers, that you love one another as I have loved you", and "If you have done it unto one of the least of my brothers, you have done it unto me." Simply put, you can love God only by loving other human beings. Atheistic humanists don't accept that there is a god and simply espouse loving other humans.
Relevance:  Understanding of this clears up a great confusion and unloads a heavy burden.

Jesus versus Mythical Avatars
Synopsis:  There have been some arguments that the tangible existence of Jesus on earth was mythical. One of the arguments is that he shares so many aspects of the lives of a sizeable number of warrior-hero god-kings in more than one cultural mythology. Here is a list of life-aspects of mythical avatars.
Relevance:  Provides some pertinent information.

How Jesus Related to Societal Elements
Synopsis:  A look at the range of various ways that Jesus related to different people.

Jesus, Israel & Scripture
Synopsis:  At the basis of a religion is a set of ideas, and usually there is one that sits as the cornerstone and sets that religion apart, with the others of the set of dogmas forming the greater foundation. 
Relevance:  An explanation of why the Hebrew scripture should not be used the way they are in Christendom.

Jesus and Sexism
Synopsis:  A look at the issue of sexism and the actions and message of Jesus.
Relevance:  A very troublesome and important aspect of God's value system and how extensive and wrong sexism is in religion.

Paradigm Material

A few words about Paradigms
Synopsis:  A paradigm is most like a container. It is a structure that holds, handles and organizes evidence, information and issues in a related, consistent way so that the whole—greater than the sum of the parts—can be seen, and so that new information can be positioned in its proper relationship. Paradigms are not just important; they are crucial.
Relevance:  Paradigms are NOT optional; everyone has them and uses them whether they realize this or not. A good paradigm is one that is able to "contain" and organize effectively ALL the evidence, information and issues, so that as more is learned, the picture that emerges makes more and more sense. A bad paradigm is one that cannot effectively "make sense" out of some or much of the information.

Paradigm Lockout Syndrome

Paradigm of Pertinent Philosophy
Synopsis:  Having a belief structure is like having a mind, we never see it and we hardly ever think about it but we use it all the time. Denying that you have a mind does not mean that you do not have one, only that you are not using it well. If you say, "I don't have a belief system", then that is your belief system!

Relevance:  It's long past time that we determined to be more honest and intellectually responsible.

Planetary Catastrophe Paradigm
Synopsis:  If you understand and accept in general the theme of planetary astral catastrophism and especially the Saturn myth reconstruction and the concomitant themes of the golden age ending in a major disaster and resulting in a series of lesser Solar system shakeups, the implications and ramifications of the reconstruction become enormous.  The range and extent of intellectual knowledge and spiritual belief change becomes almost unmanageable or overwhelming for the modern man immersed, educated, trained and conditioned in the popular world views built around either the "godless" or purposeless evolutionistic gradualism of establishment science, or his "religion" based on some external authority figure (book, tradition, denomination or hierarchal priesthood, leadership or clergy), or some mind and soul numbing combination thereof.

Paradigm of Solipsism
Synopsis:  A look at the simplest and most shallow paradigm of them all. the idea that only I exist and that EVERYTHING else is just part of my own dream.

Paradigm Shift
Synopsis:  Many of his readers didn't believe that Copernicus was claiming that the Sun was the center of the solar system.

Relevance:  The Electric Universe paradigm, unlike the gravitational one, can accomodate the things that our ancient ancestors experienced and reported to us.

Halton Arp & Galileo
Synopsis:  An article comparing Halton Arp and his galactic findings on quasars and redshift to the developments of Galileo.
Relevance:  Accepting that redshift does NOT equal distance from the earth when considering stars and galaxies pulls the rug out from under the Big Bang, the exploding and expanding universe.

Electric Universe Theory
Synopsis:  The "Electric Universe" is a paradigm change, a new way of interpreting findings in terms of plasma and electrical forces. In this interpretation, gravity plays a secondary role behind the far more powerful electric force, and electrified plasma in the laboratory provides a model for comprehending newly-discovered phenomena in space.
Relevance:  The EU paradigm has enormous ramifications in virtually all of the hard sciences, besides supporting the ancient accounts of astral catastrophes and cometary disasters.

Science Paradigm Limit
Synopsis:  The Twentieth Century will likely go down in the history of science as the century of the discovery of limits.  Our universe seems to have finite volume and finite diameter. The article speculates about the implications of a holographic universe and information processing.

Relevance:  Evidence shows that it was once one of the most important ceremonial sites in England, comparable in significance to Stonehenge.

Psychological Issues

Psychological Barriers to Truth
4 Major yet erroneous ideas that are Barriers to Truth 
– God is the source of the mystical experience.
   Inevitability – Physical degeneration, aging and death are inevitable.
   Revelation – A lineage of designated authority or scripture is the Word of God.
   Equality – The transcendence of the Creator precludes our being equal with that person.
Relevance:  Addresses how these four things become barriers and preclude coming to the truth.

Principles and Nature of Belief
Synopsis:  The overwhelmingly important aspect of belief is that false beliefs have undesirable, unproductive, and ultimately devastating consequences. False beliefs keep us disempowered and imprisoned, keep us in bondage to the wrong purposes, values and directions, and keep us doing the wrong things.

Thoughts on Three Levels of Volition

Article on nature of Human Volition
Synopsis:  You can put an adult in front of a classroom or an assembly, and that adult can emit words with good moral instruction, but don't expect much impact.
Relevance:  That's because all this is based on a false model of human nature. It's based on the idea that human beings are primarily deciders. If you pour them full of moral maxims, they will be more likely to decide properly when temptation arises. That's not the way it works.

Article on Free Will
Synopsis:  Free will. "The more you scrutinize it, the more you realize you don't have it!" is a quote. Is that really true? Are we nothing more than sophisticated meat machines?
Relevance:  Looking for the key to self control and destiny.

An Analysis of Hypocrisy
Synopsis:  From the widest possible survey of ancient Greek literature the word
hypocrite refers to an actor or puppet, a non-genuine person, a person who is

of the word implies a lower level of critical thinking or judgment.
Relevance:  An analysis leading to the way Jesus used the word and what he meant.

Thoughts on the Ego Problem
Synopsis:  Many books have been written on this subject, but instead of seeing that our egos are naturally and ineluctably shaped and wounded by the "environment" that we develop in, many guru authors define the ego as something that needs to be killed or done away with instead of healed, fed wholesome spiritual food, and made healthy.
Relevance:  The new and real explanation of the ego problem and a challenge to do something about it.

Personal Integrity versus Authority
Synopsis:  A study showing an appalling lack of personal responsibility in the face of "authority" instructions.

Legitimate Spiritual Communication Style
Synopsis:  Exploring the issue of the most legitimate truth sharing style. Men are easily swayed by a well designed psychological appeal to their prejudices, traditions, cherished beliefs, senses and emotions, and that is the way of advertising, of hucksterism, of mind control, of manipulation.

consciousness? To contemplate this to be true is nothing short of astounding, and has far reaching implications.

Cosmology and Psychology
Synopsis:  Article on the pronounced affect that cosmology has on psychology in general.

Velikovsky's Introgenesis Thinking

Sacrifice and Amnesia
Synopsis:  We did not forget the world falling out of control, but remembered these events to the point of obsession. The entire sweep of ritual activity at the dawn of civilization shows a preoccupation with the dramas of creation, destruction and renewal. Ritual practices were, in fact, a deliberate exercise in remembering. But this preoccupation, expressing a sense of universal rupture, could only foster a *forgetfulness* at the deepest level of human awareness - that level at which one recognizes the kinship of all life, the brotherhood of man, the unity of creation.
Relevance:  A big part of the picture as to what is really going on with Mankind.

Article on Something Meaningful
Synopsis:  A candid look at why the term "Creator" must be decoupled from the term "God" before we can start to deal with what is meaningful.

The Problem of Evil
Synopsis:  There have been a lot of arguments that the existence of God and the existence of evil are incompatible, and many arguments that attempt to reconcile the two. One solution that has been proposed is that evil doesn't exist.
Relevance:  All of this is very shallow, since the arguments take place within the arena of the traditional paradigm of god, and wherein an adequate definition of evil is not even provided.

What About Death?
Synopsis:  Some plain talk about Eros and Thanatos, fulfillment and death, the two basic things—one positive, the other negative—that motivate people.

Synopsis:  One of the most pernicious doctrines in Christian theology is the teaching that god knows everything down to the minutest detail that will ever happen in the future.

The Question of Blame and Guilt
Synopsis:  Virtually every Christian denomination and sect lays a burden of guilt upon its members, some a very heavy burden. Under this widespread approach we are made to feel guilty for our ego problems and all the attendant behavior that we use as coping mechanisms. Of course, we are made to feel guilty about our erotic dimension, and this can be VERY powerful and destructive. Some even go so far as to make one guilty—in the eyes of the ever watching "Lord"—of eating between meals, dressing in a displeasing manner, and even thoughts that come unbidden, etc., ad nauseam.
Relevance:  We should all easily see that fear and guilt are powerful motivators, and that those hawking products and services on television use a fair amount of these. What is also true is that these are the time honored tools of evangelists, preachers and proselytizers.

Why is God not More Involved?
Synopsis:  A frank look at the evidence that God is not significantly involved in the affairs of the world or Mankind.

Major Theological Issue Differences
Synopsis:  29 major Christian Dogmas or Doctrines contradicted or not espoused
by the J-person where there is significant reason to believe differently.

The Awareness Level of "God"
Synopsis:  A square look at the traditional doctrine that Jesus is up in Heaven watching everything that we do.

The Agonizing, Praying Jesus
Synopsis:  One sub-paradigm that is being proposed by the IFISEEUS site is that "God" the Father is the corpus of unfallen children (humans) in the greater universe, a universe over which the Originator has delightfully ceded control to them. Jesus is sometimes portrayed in the Gospel accounts as often withdrawing from earthly human contact and agonizingly praying throughout the night. Christians assume that he was seeking solace and strength from God to assuage his loneliness, disappointment and frustration in dealing with the people, disciples and others, with whom he was interacting.
Relevance:  We should understand this activity of Jesus in a more appropriate and meaningful way.

A perspective on Martyrdom
Synopsis:  Dying for some other person's agenda, plan, will or other external value or factor, or for that which you have been programmed is martyrdom. We are not called to martyrdom.

Destiny of Man article
Synopsis:  Man is not destined to achieve "singularity" or "oneness"--that is, to absorb deity or be absorbed by deity. Man is not destined to become a demigod or demiurge (a lesser god).  Man is not destined to endure repeated or cyclical reincarnations.  Nor is man destined for extinction or oblivion.  Rather, through the presence of the risen Christ, man is destined to become truly and fully human in collegial fellowship with the human God and in relationship with all other human beings, with oneself and with the universe.

The Gift of Miracles
Synopsis:  What IS being dealt with here are the aspects and issues surrounding the benevolent intervention of God in human affairs today. The author believes that such benevolent interventions take place ONLY in the life of the person who has put his life in the hands of God to be led in seeking the truth and who is committed to believing the best rational, logical, and reasonable vision of God that can come to his mind.

It is clear that these words are also cognate with many of the names (Ishtar, Astarte, Asherah, Ashteroth) of the goddess identified with the planet Venus.

Synopsis:  This symbol is a stylized version of the "squatter man" and is related to longevity because this plasma discharge formation lasted the longest in the series seen in the ancient sky.

Astral Origin of Symbols
Synopsis:  The powerful symbols that were produced in the sky during the end-phase of the Golden Age include all the major religious ones—the cross, swastika, star of David, yin yang,, star and crescent, the Ankh—and many others that are global in scope.

Geophysical Issues

Origin of Modern Geology
Synopsis:  Indeed, what is extraordinary about the London Geological Society is that none of the original members were geologists. This is the group that introduced the pillars of modern Geological theory of gradualism, uniformism, and evolutionism. This was done clearly in an effort to defang the oppressive "moral" influence of the Church of England by discrediting creationism.

Origin of Grand Canyon IOrigin of Grand Canyon II
Synopsis:  I-The surface of the earth presents many problems for geologists, not the least of which is that the Grand Canyon is supposed to have been formed by the Colorado River. As recently as about a dozen and a half years ago geologists were working with four different and mutually exclusive models of the canyon's creation. At a special meeting they managed to winnow the four theories down to two—neither one of them satisfactory—with more than one reason to refute them both. One geologist noted that the only way the Colorado River could have carved the canyon is if it came out of the sky!
II-The Grand Canyon's tributaries are generally short with little evidence of the necessary water flowing into the ends from the high desert floor. The jagged tributaries are deeply cut and are characterized by nearly vertical walls. They join the main canyon at right angles, a distinctive sign of electric discharge phenomena.
Relevance:  The canyon overwhelmingly indicates an Electrical Discharge machining formation, and the dates assigned to it are meaningless. It serves as a model for many or most of the world's river valley systems as being electrical scars in the first place.

Great Chicago Fire IGreat Chicago Fire IIGreat Chicago Fire III

Sahara Desertification
Synopsis:  One of the most striking climate changes of the past 11,000 years caused the abrupt desertification of the Saharan and Arabia regions midway through that period. The resulting loss of the Sahara to agricultural pursuits may be an important reason that civilizations were founded along the valleys of the Nile, the Tigris, and the Euphrates. Green glass found in the Sahara and at Hadley's Rille on the Moon gives a clue. A Wal Thornhill article.

Niagara Falls Escarpment
Synopsis:  The Niagara Escarpment can be seen as being part of a larger system of electrical scarring. The articles details why the prevailing explanations are not valid.
Relevance:  Give a low tech, high confidence calculation on date of origin.

Synopsis:  Links to the Table of Contents and the entire series of these foundational journals.
Relevance:  Published about 30 years after Worlds in Collision first broke upon the academic world like a tsunami, these journals get credit for a renewal of interest in recent astral or planetary catastrophism and the whole incredibly sordid "Velikovsky Affair." Many of the artcles show that "Scientism" is the new, prevailing, yet false religion of the Western World.

Catastrophe-Psychological Effects

Cosmology and Psychology
Synopsis:  Somewhere between the infinite reaches of outer space—the Cosmos—and the labyrinthine recesses of the human mind—the Cosmos Within—lie two of Mankind's most profound psychological and emo­tional creations—Myth and Religion.  Together, they have served man's basic need to bridge the known and the unknown, the finite and the immeasurable, the tangible and the intangible.
Relevance:  The significance of the origin of myth and religion remains for most scholars tantalizingly elusive and continues to provide one of the most intriguing problems in the study of man; yet it is of the utmost importance.

Phobia, Amnesia, and Psyche
Synopsis:  It is a psychological phenomenon in the life of individuals as well as whole nations that the most terrifying events of the past may be forgotten or displaced into the subconscious mind.  As if obliterated are impressions that should be unforgettable.  To uncover their vestiges and their distorted equivalents in the physical life of peoples is a task not unlike that of overcoming amnesia in a single person.
Relevance:  Mankind is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, guilt, denial, and amnesia due to the catastrophes of the past. Psychological healing cannot take place until these issues are remembered and addressed.

Microcosm to Macrocosm
Synopsis:  Two events of the mid-twentieth century—the birth of the Atomic Age and the revelation of cosmic catastrophes in historical times—have caused and should cause mankind to reassess his terrestrial position and chances of survival.

Theomachy in the Theater
Synopsis:  Drawing parallels between the ancient catastrophes with their effects upon man, and the nuclear holocaust suffered by Japan and the popularity of the stream of banal monster beast movies coming from that culture.
Relevance:  So far as we are aware, no Japanese studio has yet produced a film dealing explicitly with either the atomic destruction. These are symptoms of cultural amnesia and denial.

Myth and Mandala
Synopsis:  Recent information concerning the universal natural development in children's art of the mandala design, a symbol identified by Jung as a major archetypal motif of the collective unconscious, offers a psychobiological alignment which may trace to ancient global catastrophe.

Schizo-World Destruction
Synopsis:  It is widely known that the Aztecs of Mexico experienced great anxiety each time a 52-year Venus-cycle neared its completion.  But what, precisely, was it that they were afraid of?
Relevance:  In looking into this matter, we find enormous clues as to what happened in the past and its effect upon the human race.

Velikovsky-New Science
Synopsis:  Those historians and social scientists who began to realize that a universal and inter-related science of man was becoming a necessity of thought, if the nature of man was ever to be known, found that Giambattista Vico had made precisely this claim two centuries before.  Vico insisted that, if a full history and understanding of man was to be known, the myths of earlier times ought to be taken seriously as themselves accounts of the actual history of those times.
Relevance:  This also Velikovsky claims, while standing on the shoulders of many catastrophist researchers.

The Tao, the Way
Synopsis:  The "Tao, the Way--the basic Chinese belief in an order and harmony in nature is probably very close to what Western Man refers to when he mentions natural law.  This grand concept originated in remote times.
Relevance:  This article sheds even more light on the ancient catastrophes and their effects upon Mankind.

The Sin Control System
Synopsis:  Since uniformitarian scholars do not believe in cataclysms and in the cosmic origins of religions, they can seldom catch a religion at the precise moment of its inception, but are forever condemned to begin their study at some point far down the line, after the transmogrifications of time have converted the object of their study into a veritable mishmash.
Relevance:  Our ancestors believed that it was through their incorrect behavior that they had brought the catastrophes upon themselves, and through this guilt comes the possibility of great psychological control.

Sin Control & Holocaust
Synopsis:  A look at the Nazi holocaust and the sin control system.

Cosmology Material

Galactic Rotation
Synopsis:  Article showing that galaxies revolve primarily as a whole around the axis versus by the individual parts around a center of mass.
Relevance:  Indicates that Galaxies are electrical structures.

Globular Clusters
Synopsis:  Article showing that stars in a cluster do not revolve around a center and are held in place by electrical forces.
Relevance:  Indicates that Globular Clusters are electrical structures.

Religious Big Bang
Synopsis:  Article showing that the Big Bang is religiously derived, and is a scientifically unwarranted paradigm.
Relevance:  Steady-state theories and the growing universe of Halton Arp seem to be incompatible with scripture.

Cosmologists: Wrong or Blind?
Synopsis:  How could millions of intelligent, conscientious astronomers for centuries have been wrong?
Relevance:  Not just overlooking a few details, they miss the entire picture.

Quasar in Front
Synopsis:  One of the two major pillars of the big bang is that redshift is proportional to distance.
Relevance:   This is an example if a high redshift quasar that is clearly in front of a connected low reshift galaxy that violates that pillar fundamentally.

The Fingers of God
Synopsis:  The big bang theory predetermines the size, the shape and the age of the universe (according to the latest satellite data, it is an expanding sphere 78 billion light years in diameter and 13.7 billion years old.) Because astronomers believe that redshift is a measure of distance, most of the distances of millions of galaxies, quasars, and gamma ray bursts have been distorted into "fingers" that point to the earth.
Relevance:  A different interpretation of redshift will imply a much different universe. Halton Arp's research shows that redshift cannot be a measure of distance.

Redshift Rosetta Stone
Synopsis:  A

Relativity & Einstein Tragedy
Synopsis:  Article about the falsity of the theories of "Relativity", and the tragedy that Einstein felt responsible for the development of atomic weaponry and its WWII use.

Dent in Space-Time Fabric?

Nature & Definition of Space
Synopsis:  New paradigm philosophical article on the nature of what we mean by the word "space". Currently, "space" is reified by scientist-speculators as an actual physical reality instead of a mental construct such as zero or infinity. Article shows that space is in the universe instead of the universe being in space.

The Neutrino Aether
Synopsis:  New paradigm philosophical article on why accepting an aether is axiomatic, and why the EU thinking is that it is composed of all but empty basic packets of matter called neutrinos, with a vanishingly small amount of internal mass/energy and dipolarity.

The Nature of Force Fields
Synopsis:  New paradigm philosophical article on the concrete material support for "force fields", and a simple and elegant explanation for why the force intensity falls off with some factor of distance.

Stars: Nuclear or Electric?
Synopsis:  "The certainty that the Sun generates its prodigious outpourings of energy through thermonuclear reactions deep in its interior has been with us for about half a century." [Juergens 1979]. But, there are many reasons to doubt this presently accepted theory of how our Sun (and every other star) generates its radiant energy.
Relevance:  There are at least five major things wrong with this scenario.

Big Bang "Science"
Synopsis:  At the heart of conventional cosmology lies the dogma of an electrically neutral universe governed by gravity alone. Without the benefit of this dogma, the Big Bang hypothesis could never have achieved its present prominence. And it is here that we see most clearly how, under the necessities of funding, scientists are eager to “confirm” a theory that, according to many critics, has already failed.
Relevance:  It is apparent that good news is essential to the funding of exotic projects.

Wings of a Butterfly
Synopsis:  In the electric universe cosmology, explosions, dying stars, and collisions are replaced by plasma phenomena for the production of such beautiful and intricate structures as the Butterfly Nebula.
Relevance:  Beautiful yet stqrk evidence of an electric universe and electric stars.

The Bug Nebula
Synopsis:  Plasmas in the lab form cellular structures separated by thin layers of opposite charge called double layers. The same thing happen in nebulas.
Relevance:  Indicates that nebulas are plasma structures with some form of the hourglass shape, not explosion debris.

The Bullet Cluster
Synopsis:  Optical and x-ray images of the galaxy cluster named 1E0657-56 have provided direct proof that these clumps of disturbed galaxies are small, faint, and nearby. These and many similar observations directly contradict the foundational assumptions of the Big Bang, which place the objects far away.
Relevance:  The findings are incompatible with the Big Bang Theory.

Dark Matter
Synopsis:  In the 1930s, astronomers Fritz Zwicky and Sinclair Smith were puzzled by the motions they observed within the Virgo and Coma galactic clusters. Everything seemed to be moving too fast to be held in place by gravity. So they conjectured that something they could not see was exerting a gravitational effect on these clusters.
Relevance:  Since there is no experimental or observable evidence that dark matter exists, it is just a prop for the beleaguered big bang theory.

Meaning of Deep Impact
Synopsis:  The picture has changed completely with the discovery of plasma and electricity in space. But somehow, due to the nature of education and research funding today, the original guesses about cometswere permitted to harden into ideology.

Deep Impact Anniversary
Synopsis:  The Thunderbolts Group proponents of the Electric Universe (EU) model predicted on December 6, 2004 that the Deep Impact mission would signal the demise of prevailing comet theory.Extensive specific and detailed predictions were published on July 3, 2005 before the impact and these predictions and the results can be seen.
Relevance:  Most of the predictions hit the mark. This first anniversary of the Deep Impact Space Mission is an appropriate time to cast a backward glance upon the state of comet science and to contrast it with the EU understanding.

Electric Lights of  Saturn
Synopsis:  But conventional astrophysicists persist in describing auroras with meteorological metaphors.
Relevance:  The discovery of electric currents everywhere in space makes the meteorological vocabulary of astrophysicists obsolete.

EU Discharges & Scars
Synopsis:  A universe that is 99% plasma requires a new vision of electrical connectivity—galaxies, stars, nebulas, invisible “double layers”—joined by webs of circuitry.
Relevance:  Such a universe also demands that we reconsider all prior beliefs about the evolution of planetary surfaces and the nature of atmospheric phenomena on planets and on the Sun.

Gamma Ray Bursters
Synopsis:  While the gamma rays are produced for only a few seconds, many of these events can be identified by their afterglow in X-ray, visible light and radio waves. These are often associated with galaxies at great distances. Astronomers describe them as the biggest explosions in the universe.
Relevance:  The estimated size of a gamma ray burst depends on its distance from earth. Redshift=distance makes some if not all gamma ray bursts impossibly energetic.

Olber's Paradox
Synopsis:  The apparent intensity of a light source decreases with the square of its distance from the observer. If the distribution of stars is uniform in space, then the number of stars at a particular distance, r, from the observer will be proportional to the surface area of a sphere whose radius is that distance. In an infinite universe, if we sum (integrate) the light coming from all the infinite number of possible values of r, the sky should be infinitely bright.
Relevance:  Olber's Paradox is not a paradox at all if you look at it correctly.  It is yet another example of theoretical mathematics applied incorrectly to a real world phenomenon.

Impossible Cosmology
Synopsis:  There are a few things that were “impossible” under popular assumptions that held sway through much of the twentieth century. The electric universe paradigm is explaining these impossibilities.

Local Group Galaxies
Synopsis:  What can we "see" about the Local Group of galaxies now that "redshift- equals-distance" does not override observations? We can see that the Local Group stretches in a line along the minor axis of M31, the Andromeda galaxy, which is the dominant galaxy in the group.
Relevance:  Observations show that the redshift=distance hypothesis cannot be correct.

Magnetar Dream World
Synopsis:  A magnetar is an invention derived from a computer, not something actually seen in the sky. From 50,000 light years away and for a tenth of a second, the most energetic burst ever detected momentarily outshone the full moon. So astronomers asked a computer if it could produce something like this extraordinary event using a model based only on the forces of gravity and magnetism.

The Ornament Nebula
Synopsis:  Gravity Universe proponents describe a star that exhausted its thermonuclear fuel and exploded and blasted its outer layers into a rarified interstellar gas, generating a spherical shock waves formation. Electric Universe proponents describe an hourglass-shaped z-pinch in a galactic Birkeland cable—a tubular configuration of current filaments rotating around an axis, where in this case we are looking "down the barrel". Such a configuration is the “wiring harness” of all stars, which is usually invisible.

Plasma 99-9%
Synopsis:  Given that over 99.9% of the universe is made of plasma, it is high time that we began to realize that plasmas are affected by electromagnetic forces 1039 times greater than the force of gravity.

The Pleiades Problem
Synopsis:  The Hipparcos satellite measured the distance to 50 of the brightest stars in the Pleiades and came up with a distance of 118 parsecs from Earth. Previous distance measurements--some based on brightness-- converged around the value of 132 parsecs. That's a significant difference; about 12%, or almost 3 quadrillion miles.
Relevance:  The question we need to ask is how the electric currents of a cluster of stars are different from those of single stars. With many stars to share a current, will the individual stars seem brighter or dimmer than their non-clustered neighbors? Will the double stars in a cluster orbit each other under the influence of a different gravitational constant?

Arp's Quasar Ejection
Synopsis:  A recently published study adds one more layer of supporting evidence for Astronomer Halton Arp's model of Quasars ejection along the axis of parent galaxies. The discovered association can only come as another surprise to theorists of the Big Bang.
Relevance:  More and more findings that challenge the assumption that redshift=distance.

Nature of Ring Nebula
Synopsis:   The Ring Nebula has long been a favorite object of amateur astronomers and has been considered the prototypical planetary nebula. Until recently, the accepted explanation for its appearance, based on the standard theory of stellar structure and evolution, has been that they are actualy edges of spherical shells.
Relevance:  The Electric Universe explanation is that we are looking almost down the axis of an hourglass-shaped plasma structure.

Seeing Red Review
Synopsis:  With this new book, the Big Bang theory is seen at best to be theoretical flatulence, at worst it is an indictment of academic behavior and the way science is done these days.
Relevance:  From this paradigm shattering data, Arp proposes that the Universe we see is much smaller than advertised because high redshift has little to do with distance.

Tornadoes in Space ITornadoes in Space II
Synopsis:  With the discovery of Herbig Haro objects, or “jetted stars”, astronomers have scrambled for explanations. But these stars, now observed by the hundreds, only accent a common and fundamental misunderstanding of space.
Relevance:  Astronomers express great astonishment at such formations. Gravitational models featured in twentieth century astronomy never envisioned narrow jets of anything streaming away from stellar bodies. Neither gravity nor standard gas laws would allow it.

Star Fairy Ring
Synopsis:  The first fairy dances a fantasy of Redshift-is-Proportional-to-Distance, overlooking half a century of contrary evidence. That puts the ring far away. For the ring to appear as bright as it does, a second fairy must dance a pas de deux of Super Luminosity. To get that much energy from the feeble force of gravity, a third fairy must support the others with the Dance of Great Mass.
Relevance:  The mainstream explanation for this ring of stars is a fantasy.

Ring of Stars
Synopsis:  Although black holes are entirely constructed from theoretical assumptions, they are no longer questioned in conventional astronomy.
Relevance:   The plasma focus effect, which can be studied in a laboratory, better accounts for the cosmic effects attributed to black holes.

Search for Two Numbers
Synopsis:  Astronomy's obsessive search for the two numbers--the Hubble Constant and the age of the universe--is based upon an unwarranted assumption, i.e., redshift equals distance.
Relevance:  The Electric Universe makes these two nummbers irrelevant.

Vampire Astronomy
Synopsis:  A complex central network of filamentary structure spirals down to the center of the galaxy. Astronomers say it provides new insights into super-massive black holes.
Relevance:  It is more likely that it demonstrates electrical effects instead of a black hole.

Planet Birthing
Synopsis:  A Wal Thornhill article about the electrical parturition or fission model of planet birth.
Relevance:  This is a much better model than the accretion model.

Planet Birthing-more
Synopsis:  More on the electrical parturition or fission model of planet birth.
Relevance:  This is a much better model than the accretion model.

Chronology & Dating Material

Ages and Time Aspects
Synopsis:  An article about the true nature of time, and what the ancient people meant by the term "age".
Relevance:  Clears up some of the confusion about these issues.

Puzzles of Prehistory
Synopsis:  Roger W. Wescott, one of the truly great thinkers and scholars, looks at many puzzles of prehistory from a uniformitarian and a catastrophic perspective.
Relevance:  Wescott shows that things do not add up well under uniformitarian thinking.

Dark Age of Greece
Synopsis:  Velikovsky's investigation into the true cause of this so-called "Dark Age" ranks with the best of his work and may well prove to be the most convincing  A Clark Whelton article.
Relevance:  Whelton explains that Velikovsky felt the imposition of Egyptian chronology upon Greece forced an extra 400 to 500 years to be added to Greek BEC chronology.

Apocalyptic Chronology
Synopsis:  The dating shift effected by the early Carolingians strongly suggests that the lay population knew both the apocalyptic meaning of the "year 6000" and its surmised imminent approach.  This is the context in which the Annus Domini took its place as the third major dating system in the Church's struggle against apocalyptic enthusiasm.
Relevance:  Looks at the influence of apocalyptic belief had on the development of chronology.

How Much Time?
Synopsis:  Another look at the unwarranted assignment of excessive amounts of time to Earth history.
Relevance:  This is a big issue when it comes to building a world view and sorting out the geophysical and archaeological issues.

Radiohalos & Earth History
Synopsis:  Historically, radiohalos helped to put the science of geochronology on a quantitative footing.  More recently, they have thrown the en­tire discipline into disarray. A Ralph Juergens article.

Psuedo-8th Century Palestine
Synopsis:  Making mistakes in the writing of history usually derives from a biased interpretation of documents and artifacts and may also derive from fake documents and fake artifacts. Making mistakes in the writing of history quite frequently has to do with the recycling of stories, and this may result in a duplication of events and rulers allowing for a doubling of chronological time. Making mistakes in the writing of history--last, but not least--derives from taking genuine artifacts out of their stratigraphical context. A Gunnar Heinsohn article.
Relevance:  This is a piece of the picture that adds up to the 1st millennium CE being apdded with up to 730 extra years.

The Doubtful CE Chronology
Synopsis:  It turns out that both BCE. AND CE chronology are rat nests that have HUGE PROBLEMS AND ANOMALIES. Even just focusing on C.E. chronology, EVERY single aspect supporting the accepted chronology turns out to be just another lily pad in the pond that won't hold the weight when we rely upon it.
Relevance:  Exposes the frangible CE chronology that potentially has been padded with an extra 730 years in the first millennium.

CE Chronology Issues
Synopsis:     Focusing on Rome and the Vikings, this is a partial yet convincing piece of Europe's CE dating challenges from several different perspectives that indicate a drastic revision is needed.
Relevance:  More evidence and support for a 1st Millennium CE chronology revision.

Chronological Ankylosis
Synopsis:  An article explaining that once a date for a significant event gets set, it is very hard for that date to get revised, along with all the other related dates.
Relevance:  Explains partly why there is so much confusion in chronology.

Caral, Peru Archaeology
Synopsis:  Researchers investigating a Peruvian archaeological site say they have determined that it is the oldest city yet studied in the Americas, with a complex, highly structured society that flourished at the same time that the pyramids were being built in Egypt.

Solstice Light Boxes
Synopsis:  It's been called a "lightbox," a man-made ancient aperture in a tomb that accurately tracks the movement of celestial bodies on the darkened chambers inside.

Bible Flunks Archaeology
Synopsis:  What if Bible accounts don't fit the evidence in the ground? What if David's Jerusalem was really a rural backwater -- and the greatness of Israel and Judah lay far in the future? Lately, such assertions are coming from some authorities on Israel's archaeology, who speak from the perspective of recent finds from excavations into the ancient past.
Relevance:  Helps expose the mythical element of Judeao-Christianity.

Ebla Discovery & Excavation
Synopsis:  The discovery and excavation of Ebla and its extensive library allows a significant better translation of the Sumerian language.
Relevance:  Affects Old Testament translation and chronology.

Age Limits of Biosphere
Synopsis:  Having a look at some geophysical aspects that preclude the surface of the earth being more than thousands of years old instead of millions.
Relevance:  Eliminates gradualistic processes and opens the door for catastrophic processes.
