Table of Contents

COSMOLOGY
BIG QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BIG BANG
For years the big bang theory has been put forward by scientists as the only viable explanation for the origin of the universe. But upon closer examination, it appears that the little-publicized shortcomings of the theory may prove to be insurmountable.

PSYCHOLOGY
THE MYSTERY OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Consciousness is a fact of life. We all have it. But can modern science explain it within its current mechanistic framework? It appears not.

BIOLOGY
LIFE FROM CHEMICALS: FACT OR FANTASY?
In Darwin's time, scientists thought the living cell to be no more than a simple bag of chemicals. They could readily imagine that the first such cell might have spontaneously evolved from a mixture of organic chemicals. But as modern biochemical research uncovers the incredible complexity of even the simplest microorganisms, it is not so clear that chemical evolution is adequate to explain the origin of life. or the idea that one species gives rise to another by purely physical processes. But upon critical examination, it appears the same evidence can be used to show that intelligent design may have played a part in the origin of species.

PALEONTOLOGY
THE RECORD OF THE ROCKS
According to the scientific establishment, the "fact" of evolution is clearly evident in the fossil record. But it appears that the record of the rocks has been carefully edited to support current evolutionary theory.

PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE
HIGHER DIMENSIONAL SCIENCE
At a time when the attempt to explain everything in the universe in terms of simple physical laws is proving unsuccessful, the need for a new strategy of scientific investigation is becoming more and more apparent.
