Not a Photon Falleth ...

In 1935, Einstein and two colleagues published a paper that set off what has become close to a century of theorizing and research about entanglement phenomena.The paper came to be known as EPR from the initials of the last names of its authors – and while they may not have had me in mind at the time, I have always been grateful to them for marking the year of my birth with such a monument.Photons (and other particles plus atoms and even some small groups of atoms) that become entangled are…See More

NASA and the End of Religious Fundamentalism

Back in the year 2000, I sent the following question to “Ask a NASA Scientist:”Cosmologists seem to think of the big bang as a purely natural event. If that is indeed the assumption in cosmology, is it unreasonable to assume (from a purely scientific point of view) that the big bang had a purely natural context, that we will someday come to understand that context thoroughly, and that we may choose to engineer another big bang, if we find it in our interest to do so?NASA's reply:Theoretically,…See More

The Biggest Fact of the Human Adventure

It is an absolute fact that:This is the only picture of the human adventure (1) that is strongly based in a solid fact set from our modern knowledge base and (2) that also assigns a meaningful function for our species in the scheme of things:The universe created the first life form on this planet and is therefore a living organism itself because only one life form can create another one. As a life form, its primary agenda is to reproduce itself, which it is in the process of doing by creating…See More

"I assume that the universe is one thing because the whole system (whatever that may turn out to be) originated in one event. There are probably many scenarios in which the universe may not seem to be one thing at the moment in the continuing saga of…"

" can you expand on this logic " Here's the logic: The universe is, as its name implies, exactly one thing. Since it is exactly one thing, there is only one view about its essential nature and about the nature of the human…"

Guess Who's Cloming to the Human Adventure!

Who's coming to the human adventure?Here are two clues:(1) It's all happened before, 600 million years ago.And (2) this event will be the next big step for our species.To see who's coming to the human adventure, let us think together.Scientists have recently traced our animal genetic origins to the sponges – the only animals today that do not have a nervous system.It follows, then, that out of the uncountable number of variants that sponges produced in the early stage of their reign, one lucky…See More

"Trial by combat -- or perhaps better, trial by demonstration. I would say that any BMOP contender ought to be able to answer one of the substantial questions of the human adventure -- and do a better job than the competition.  But it certainly…"

The Remark of the Little Green Man

There is one matter I should fess up to before my blog project here goes any further.In the eBook I have put together, I have framed the worldview material I want to get around to discussing as a project to find the person with the best mind on the planet (which I cleverly christened as The BMOP Challenge).I'm not really concerned with justifying the substance of the project, but I would like to make the tone of the challenge clear -- which I can best do by telling you about the little Green…See More

About Me:
I'm a long-retired college professor with an agenda. Go ahead, ask me about it -- and make my day. Or better still, just google "The Evolution Money Tree," download the FREE PDF, and make your own day. (Well, it's your fault I mentioned this -- you do ask me below "What item does not grow on a tree?" and make me check "Money" before I can post this.)
