Re: 'Creationism' biologist quits job

Geoff, how are all these different races related to each other then? Are they all from the same planet and share a common ancestor, just from elsewhere? What made the differences in their races where they originated? Also, if they have the technology to travel to different planets, why did they stay...

Re: 'Creationism' biologist quits job

Further dowsing gives that mankind first appeared on this planet some 90 million years ago to find apes already in residence. Geoff Hmmm.... strikes me a unlikely I'm afraid as 90 million years ago was the late Cretaceous; Dinosaur time. Mammals existed at this time but were small and rodent-like. ...

Re: 'Creationism' biologist quits job

"I would still like to know why some humans regard apes etc., as our 'relatives' though." Check out the wikipedia entry on "Apes" - subsection biology. (there are worryingly few references, but most of what I read rings bells from "human origins and diversity" lectures ...

Re: 'Creationism' biologist quits job

Hi Geoff 1. I'm not sure how much I believe that other animals don't have individual souls, or that humans don't have a group soul. There are lots of thoughts and messages flying around on this, so apologies for not believing what your dowsing says. ;-) 2. IF what you say is true, then what is to sa...

Re: 'Creationism' biologist quits job

Thanks for the detailed reply, Rory. Your description of the I-ther sounds similar to my general thoughts on the universe and existence, so I won’t go into that until I’ve read more (apart from to say that I’d question whether the word “intelligence” is the right term to use). I am going t...

Re: 'Creationism' biologist quits job

Hello to a fellow rocker! I was mainly wondering about what people think about whether the scientists should engage in creationism debate, but I'm happy to discuss the issues you've raised. What are the massive gaps in evolution that you refer to and given the natuer of the fossil record is this act...

Re: 'Creationism' biologist quits job

What do others think of the science - creationism communication thing? I've been involved in many heated debates on creationism. One big thing I learned is to be specific - there is a big difference between "creationism" and "young-earth creationism". I'm a member of the Geologic...

Re: What protection is needed for dowsing/automatic writing?

Hi Dennis I'm not a dowser, but I assume that the answer is the same for all forms of divination. When you use a technique such as dowsing, automatic writing, tarot etc you are activating your psychic abilities and opening yourself up to the "energies" of the psychic world / spirit realm /...

Re: Russian Research Explains the Paranormal

Anyone come across morphic field theory? From what I remember of a brief reading up on it a while back, it suggests that information, knowledge and traits are stored in our "morphic field" (from what I understand, our aura) and that the morphic field is also passed on during reproduction. ...

Re: Russian Research Explains the Paranormal

Satyr, apologies for accusing you of being a creationist and hello to a fellow pagan. The way I understand junk DNA is that it arrived as a gradual evolutionary process over billions of years. We didn't suddenly materialise with only 5% of our DNA being useful. We started off as simple organisms. Be...

Re: Russian Research Explains the Paranormal

Soul-retained DNA ....Yes. it is what I have labelled as 'soul DNA' - but I understand that it's only DNA that we can make use of in present and future incarnations (if we care to do so) for the benefit of others. It is, I have dowsed, actual DNA, but it does not consist of the molecules that progr...

Re: Russian Research Explains the Paranormal

Geoff, I'm interested to know how you go about dowsing such an answer.... I thought you could only dowse "yes / no" answers..... What do you mean by the DNA that is retained in our soul? Are you talking about something that you have labelled as "soul DNA" or are you talking about...

Re: Russian Research Explains the Paranormal

I'm sceptical about this. It sounds very interesting and I'm sure there are some gems of wisdom in there, but any blurb that tries to fit in so many uses of the words "science", "scientists", "scientifically" and "proven" into one article rings alarm bells wit...
