Charles Manson Then and Now

Charles Manson, (aka Charles Milles Maddox), the self-proclaimed “Messiah” who presided over a commune-style group known as the “Manson Family” was convicted in 1971 in California in a trial covering a total of 27 count indictments against he and members of the ‘family’ for the murders of seven persons, including actress Sharon Tate, (who was pregnant at the time of the murder), coffee heiress Abigail Folger, supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary.

Secrets Of The Mind

They're not common, but there are people in this world who have profoundly different experiences of reality than you and I have. People who are technically blind but who can see anyway, who can feel pain in amputated limbs, who believe they are God and that they have created heaven and hell, and even people who think their own parents are imposters. These people may be called crazy, but they're not. Their ways of thinking are limited and distorted because some parts of their brains have suffered physical damage. Today neuroscientists like Ramachandran investigate their brains and their...

The Privileged Planet

Although this documentary is promoting “intelligent design” view I decided to post it. For centuries scientists and philosophers have marveled at an eerie coincidence. Mathematics, a creation of human reason, can predict the nature of the universe, a fact physicist Eugene Wigner referred to as the “unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the physical sciences.” In the last three decades astronomers and cosmologists have noticed another, seemingly unrelated, mystery. Contrary to all expectations, the laws of physics seem precisely “fine-tuned” for the existence of complex...

Evolution of Life On Other Planets: Even the Gods Have Gods

The Girl Who Survived Rabies

Four years after she nearly died from rabies, Jeanna Giese is being heralded as the first person known to have survived the virus without receiving a preventative vaccine. But Giese (pronounced Gee-See) says she would gladly share that honor with others if only doctors could show that the treatment used to save her could spare other victims as well. “They shouldn’t stop ’till it’s perfected,” said Giese, now 19, during a recent interview about physicians’ quest to refine the technique that may have kept her alive. Giese’s wish may come true. Another young girl infected with...
