Movie: ‘Heaven Is For Real’ (Updated)

Apr 20

Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, “Heaven is for Real” brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near-death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event. Randall Wallace of “Brave Heart” fame is the writer/director. The movie premiers April 16th, 2014.

Swine Flu Drug Tamiflu Was Waste Of Money — And Dangerous

Apr 16

A new study says the drug Tamiflu, which was given to 240,000 people in the UK during the swine flu pandemic, does nothing to halt the spread of influenza and the U.K. wasted nearly £500 million stockpiling it. The study also found that Tamiflu has been linked to suicides of children in Japan and suggested that, far from easing flu symptoms, it could actually worsen them…

New Book Series: ‘The Alchemy of Dreams’

New Book Series: ‘The Alchemy of Dreams’

Apr 07

David Sunfellow writes: “Let me cut to the chase: Wesley Wyatt is the most skilled person I know at dream work and dream interpretation. His abilities with dreams arise out of a lifetime of working with his dreams and the dreams of others. I know because I’m his brother. We not only learned how to work with our dreams together, but we have spent four decades sharing dreams and honing our skills. Whether you are someone new to dreams and dream work, or a seasoned veteran, everyone can benefit from the treasures my brother has collected over the years. Do yourself a favor. Buy his books. And then buy a few copies to share with those you love. While we are all born with angelic companions, in the form of dreams, only those who actually know how to work with these powerful, magical forces can make the most of their gifts. My brother can show you how to tap the same forces that have guided, protected, healed, and inspired many of humankind’s most celebrated dreamers. The Alchemy of Dreams, in other words, are spiritual dynamite. These books contain pearls of great price that can make everything better, deeper, healthier, happier.”

How To Limit Your Daily Exposure To Toxins

How To Limit Your Daily Exposure To Toxins

Apr 02

Dr. Mercola writes: “There’s no doubt that most people are being exposed to too many toxic chemicals. The results are plain for all to see, as brain disorders in both the very young and the elderly are skyrocketing; not to mention that people of all ages are increasingly ravaged by chronic diseases of all kinds as well. If you want to protect your own health, and the health of your family, I believe you simply must become more vigilant about the chemicals you come into contact with on a daily basis, and this certainly includes the foods you eat. Here are a dozen recommendations that will help limit your family’s toxic exposure….

This book considers a wide range of experiences of dying patients that Dr. Sartori has encountered during her nursing career. It focuses on the near-death experiences (NDEs) of patients Dr. Sartori has nursed as well as the hundreds of cases of people who have contacted her over the years. Many people take NDEs at surface value and are mis-informed about the full extent of this highly complex phenomenon. This book examines all aspects of the NDE and Dr. Sartori emphasizes that by pathologising the NDE we are missing out on very important insights which can empower us to live fulfilled and meaningful lives…

UN Warns: Climate Change Dangers Are Here Now, Will Worsen

UN Warns: Climate Change Dangers Are Here Now, Will Worsen

Mar 26

Scientists have already observed many changes from warming, such as an increase in heat waves in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Severe floods, such as the one that displaced 90,000 people in Mozambique in 2008, are now more common in Africa and Australia. Europe and North America are getting more intense downpours that can be damaging. Melting ice in the Arctic is not only affecting the polar bear, but already changing the culture and livelihoods of indigenous people in northern Canada. “Climate change really is a challenge in managing risks,” says Chris Field of the Carnegie Institution of Science in California. “It’s very clear that we are not prepared for the kind of events we’re seeing.”

Among other things, they are now replacing a host of other devices at a fraction of the price. A case in point is the new Samsung Galaxy S4…

Jesus: “Ossuary Of James” Trial Comes To End (Updated)

Jesus: “Ossuary Of James” Trial Comes To End (Updated)

Feb 27

Israeli police seized the burial box and arrested its owner, Tel Aviv collector Oded Golan. In December 2004 he was charged with faking the ossuary and dozens of other items, including an inscribed tablet linked to King Joash, which, if authentic, would be the only physical evidence from the Temple of Solomon. The indictment leveled 44 charges of forgery, fraud and deception against Golan and 13 lesser counts against a codefendant, antiquities dealer Robert Deutsch. The trial of Golan, Deutsch and three others opened in Jerusalem District Court in September 2005.

On Sunday, the defense ended its summing-up with just two men left in the dock, bringing to an end five years of court proceedings that spanned 116 sessions, 133 witnesses, 200 exhibits and nearly 12,000 pages of witness testimony. The prosecution summation alone ran to 653 pages.

Yet despite the flood of strong scientific testimony, the feeling in the tiny courtroom, where fewer than a dozen people (including only one reporter) have followed the proceedings, was that the prosecution had failed to prove the items were forgeries or that Golan and Deutsch had faked them…

A new movie that tells the story of Ian McCormack’s near-death experience will premiere February 28th in South Africa. Called “The Perfect Wave”, the movie “tells the story of a rebellious young man’s journey as he searches for the meaning of life.”

“The film is in many ways a love story that interweaves four threads: a mother’s love for her son, a young man’s love for surfing, a young man falling in love for the first time, and God’s love for humankind,” says South African director Bruce Macdonald. “It has Christian appeal, but it’s primarily an adventure.”

Is It Possible To Clean The Oceans In 5 Years?

Is It Possible To Clean The Oceans In 5 Years?

Feb 02

Stiv Wilson writes: “As the policy director of the ocean conservation nonprofit 5Gyres.org, I can tell you that the problem of ocean plastic pollution is massive. In case you didn’t know, an ocean gyre is a rotating current that circulates within one of the world’s oceans — and recent research has found that these massive systems are filled with plastic waste. There are no great estimates (at least scientific) on how much plastic is in the ocean, but I can say from firsthand knowledge (after sailing to four of the world’s five gyres) that it’s so pervasive it confounds the senses. Gyre cleanup has often been floated as a solution in the past, and recently Boyan Slat’s proposed ‘Ocean Cleanup Array’ went viral in a big way. The nineteen-year-old claims that the system can clean a gyre in 5 years with ‘unprecedented efficiency’ and then recycle the trash collected. The problem is that the barriers to gyre cleanup are so massive that the vast majority of the scientific and advocacy community believe it’s a fool’s errand…”

It is often said that we are our memories — that web of experiences, relationships, thoughts, and feelings that make us who we are. We don’t remember it all of course. That would be impossible. Or would it? There has been a discovery in the field of memory recently, so new you won’t find it in any textbook. It’s so hard to fathom, there are some who remain unconvinced. For the moment, the scientists studying it are simply calling it “superior autobiographical memory.” And unless you happen to know one of the handful of people discovered so far who have it, get ready to be amazed…

TEDx: Barrie Schwortz on The Shroud of Turin

TEDx: Barrie Schwortz on The Shroud of Turin

Jan 06

Barrie Schwortz, an Orthodox Jew, spends much of his time educating Christians that the Turin Shroud may well be an artifact of Jesus. An expert on imaging, he was the official documenting photographer for the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), the 1978 team that conducted the first in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud. In 2009, he founded the Shroud of Turin Education and Research Association, Inc. (STERA, Inc.). Schwortz began as a skeptic of the shroud, but by scientific evidence became absolutely convinced of its authenticity. To be open-minded and brave enough to immerse oneself in the evidence of beliefs that go against your own, and allow yourself to be convinced of their validity, requires a courage and honesty that not many can claim. This is what Barrie Schwortz has been doing for the past 30 years…

Jan 03

Did Steve Jobs have a vision of the afterlife on his death-bed? Does quantum physics suggest that our mind might survive the physical death of our body? How do some near-death experiencers “see” outside of their bodies at a time when they are supposed to be dead? In “Stop Worrying! There Probably is an Afterlife”, author Greg Taylor covers all these questions and more. From Victorian seance rooms through to modern scientific laboratories, Taylor surveys the fascinating history of research into the survival of human consciousness, and returns with a stunning conclusion: that maybe we should stop worrying so much about death, because there probably is an afterlife…
