One astonishing byproduct of the bogus scientific theory of materialism and its correlate certainty that consciousness has to be generated by the brain is the fact that so many scientists have become obsessed with developing brain-hacks.

Stephen Hawking’s death yesterday felt especially sad to me.

The simple explanation of his “theory of everything” is a tautology – gravity... Read More

Dealing with Grief

Some of the richest people on earth are spending their fortunes in search of ways to halt and reverse the effects of aging on our bodies, and to find a way to transfer human personalities to metal bodies so they can be earthbound for centuries.
