Science vs. Religion

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 04, 2017 • 12 Comments

I often urge my audiences to subscribe to Scientific American. When I add that it’s really a humor magazine, the room will generally erupt in laughter so most people don’t hear my explanation of why I find the magazine so amusing. Scientific American actually is funny, but in a tragic sort of way: more and... Read More

Cargo Cult Science at Harvard

Posted by Roberta Grimes • November 24, 2016 • 18 Comments

In the last century there were isolated tribes on remote Pacific islands that tried to keep the bounty of Western goods coming by building wooden replicas of cargo planes. They maintained their jungle runways, and when explorers later visited these islands they were dumbfounded to find that a whole system of pseudo-religious beliefs had grown... Read More

We Live in a Matrix

The greatest scientist in the history of the world was Max Planck. He won the 1918 Nobel Prize in physics as the father of quantum mechanics, but that was not his greatest achievement. The most important thing Dr. Planck ever did was to demonstrate based on quantum principles that human consciousness is primary and it... Read More

The Wrong End of the Microscope

Watching research scientists continue to express their certainty about materialism when they have to know the dogma is wrong would be amusing if it were not so pathetic. They realize their profession is floundering. But it is their profession, after all, and they have families to feed and retirements to fund! So they continue to... Read More

Timeless and Spaceless

As we attempt to make ever better sense of what actually is going on, the hardest concept for most of us to grasp is the fact that in nearly all of reality there is no objective time or space. I’m more used to it now, and I think I begin to understand the science of... Read More

“There is Nothing New to be Discovered”

There are times when we encounter willful ignorance so spectacular that we stand in humble awe of it. How is it possible for an adult human being in the year 2016 to remain entirely unaware of every bit of modern afterlife evidence? Incredibly, there is one physicist who claims to be so unaware. According to... Read More

Let’s Get Real

I am coming to think that the leading intellectual challenge of our time, and perhaps the foremost barrier to any further human progress, is the insidious notion of dualism in the study of reality. We all take for granted the idea that there is a scientific way of approaching reality, and also a religious point... Read More

Missing Something Big

The foolish adherence of mainstream science to the false dogma of materialism is now more than a century old. And materialism has brought us so much pain! It has forced brilliant scientists to waste their careers in pursuing baseless dead-end theories while it continues to keep humankind in unnecessary ignorance and fear. The damage caused...

Watching the World Change

To be a student of the greater reality is to be sitting in sunlight at the top of a mountain, talking with all the joyous people who also have managed to make this climb as we look out wistfully over the clouds that keep in darkness the whole world below. We’ve been sitting up here... Read More

Quantum Consciousness

A friend of mine has sent me an extraordinary interview with Lother Schafer, a quantum physicist who has more than a clue about what actually is going on. His Infinite Potential: What Quantum Physics Reveals About How We Should Live (2013) is a deeply remarkable book. Dr. Schafer has arrived at precisely the same set of... Read More
