A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.
In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

C2C listener Andrew K. gave us a heads up to a fascinating story which was first reported in 1979. A Toronto man, while looking for a missing kitten, entered a cave where he encountered a furry creature of "unknown origin" that he described as long and thin, almost like a monkey" with strange red eyes (sketched right). You can read the original Toronto Sun news account at pararesearchers.org who point out the creature's resemblance to the more recent Chupacabra.

One of the topics Phil Plait tackled was the mysterious dark spot recently seen on Jupiter (pictured near the planet's equator in this photo by Eric Ng). Plait does not believe the theory that the black spot is the aftermath of a nuclear explosion arising from the crashed Galileo probe, as espoused by Richard Hoagland. He said it would be impossible for the plutonium in the craft to create this kind of fusion and produce a local hot spot of this size.
Written over 30 years ago, the book The Keys of Enoch continues to amaze. Penned by tonight's guest, James J. Hurtak, the text stemmed from an encounter he had in the early 1970's, when during a prayer session he found himself bathed in light and in the presence of a being named "Master Ophanim Enoch." Hurtak "felt himself taken out of body and into regions from which he would receive information for years to come the result of this initial encounter and later communications was probably the single most scientifically rich and puzzling set of channeled material in modern times, " wrote Jon Klimo in his book Channeling. Interestingly, Hurtak doesn't view his text as channeled information, because as he writes on his website, it was given directly to him in a "face-to-face experience with two beings of Higher Superluminal Intelligence." Here is a short excerpt that shows off the complexity of the Keys text:The valency of transfiguration takes place when the biogravitation
Tonight's guest, the prolific author Deepak Chopra, has gathered a large following based around his concepts on the mind-body connection and Ayurvedic (ancient Indian) healing. One topic he has repeatedly addressed in books such as Grow Younger, Live Longer, is that of aging. Chopra believes much of the aging process can actually be reversed or forestalled.Perception plays a large role, and he suggests that by living in the moment you can get in touch with the part of yourself that is timeless. Whether through meditation or just being fully present "when you metabolize the experience of eternity your body doesn't age," he said in an interview with Veronica Hay. Among Chopra's other tips for staying young are: Nurture the body through healthy foods Exercise and practice yoga Eliminate physical and emotional toxins Maintain a youthful mind through growth and flexibility --L.L.
For centuries, scholars such as Sir Isaac Newton have looked for hidden messages encoded in the Bible. But it wasn't till the advent of computers that one such code was fully revealed. Using a method called "ELS" or equidistant letter sequencing, various phrases have been found to appear in close proximity to each other that proponents of the code claim exceed any statistical chance. A report that was published in the Statistical Science journal in 1994 showed that in using ELS on the Old Testament, the names and dates of deaths of various prominent Rabbis over the centuries were accurately listed. According to the History Channel's program, The Bible Code: Predicting Armageddon, here are some phrases that appeared together in the same grids that seem to defy coincidence: Wright Brothers, airplane Napoleon, France, Waterloo Edison, electricity, light bulb Columbia, spaceship, they will mourn, consumed by fire Skeptics of the Bible Code claim that similar phrases
Tonight we take a look at Aura photography, which some believe shows a field that emanates from living things. The Thiaoouba Prophecy site writes that human auras are "partly composed from EM (electromagnetic) radiation, spanning from microwave, infrared (IR) to UV light. The low frequency microwave and infrared part of the spectrum (body heat) seems to be related to the low levels of the functioning of our body (...circulation etc.) whereas high frequency (UV part) is more related to our conscious activity such as thinking...and emotions."
I caught up with tonight's guest David Icke (pictured left with his wife Pamela) at the Bay Area UFO Expo back in September. Part One of my conversation with him will be featured in the December issue of After Dark. In this excerpt, Icke responds to my question if he has ever personally witnessed any humans shape-shifting into Reptilians (as he has frequently reported in his books)."I've seen eyes change of people like major politicians in Britain [that] I met before I was into all this In my research years later, I learned that they were part of the game And it blew me away obviously, because I wasn't into any of this at the time. I was a presenter at the BBC- and I'm meeting these people. I look into their eyes and they just turn jet black. There is no pupil, there is no iris, there is no white, the whole of their eye went black.""At the point where I made contact with their eyes, their eyes (the black part) just went on forever. What I was seeing, I now understan

George Noory read the following letter on the air: Sally jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said, "How is my little boy? Is he going to be all right? When can I see him?" The surgeon said, "I'm sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn't make it." Sally said, "Why do little children get cancer? Doesn't God care anymore? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?" The surgeon asked, "Would you like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he's transported to the University." Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said goodbye to her son. She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair. "Would you like a lock of his hair?" the nurse asked. Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy's hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally. The mother said, "It was Jimmy's idea to donate his body to the University for Study. He said it might h
This photograph (click on to view larger) is featured in Brad Steiger's latest book Real Ghosts. The electric chair was formerly used by the state of Tennessee, and this photo was originally sent to the Ghost to Ghost website by Fred Leuchter, an engineer who, among other things, designs and fabricates execution equipment. Leuchter said the photograph has been authenticated by Eastman Kodak as being genuine - meaning that the photo was not tampered with. Some say there are five different entities visible in this image.

Tonight's guest Gordon-Michael Scallion gleaned material from his "dream teachers" while in a trance state, about a civilization that once flourished on the Red Planet. "The Martians were more like the giants -some twenty-one feet tall- who first evolved during the early days of Earth," he writes in his Notes from the Cosmos. Their heads were humanoid in shape, but their skin was a "blue-green color" that was thick, "almost reptilian," he continued. According to Scallion, the Martians achieved a high-order of technology and spirituality, visiting other star systems and making extensive use of time travel. Their pyramids, of which we can still see remnants of, were "cosmic generators," that were used for "intergalactic communications."

A recent NASA study predicts the Arctic Ocean will lose all perennial ice by the end of this century. Such an occurrence will have devastating impact on the Arctic region and start in motion a process that will change the climate dramatically. "If the perennial ice cover, which consists mainly of thick multi-year ice floes, disappears, the entire Arctic Ocean climate and ecology would become very different," said Josefino Comiso, a researcher at NASAs Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., who authored the study. Already, much of the perennial ice is gone. The following animation shows Arctic sea ice extent from January 1, 1990, and January 1, 1999, respectively. Click the two-directional arrow below and drag it along the timeline to see the polar ice caps recede. As the ice melts, the Arctic waters will begin to warm. With less ice to reflect the sun's rays back into space, the oc
