Appearing during the middle two hours,scientist and biotech executive Leo Kim shared how numerous concepts of 21st-century science are consistent with spiritual ideas. While he started off skeptical of spirituality, he came to the conclusion that the materialism views held by many scientists such as Richard Dawkins were a kind of "false gospel"-- a dogmatic insistence that the brain and the universe are just material stuff. But now, because of the oddities of quantum phenomena, scientists are having to take on really "out-there" type theories such as parallel universes, added dimensions, string theory, and multiverses because their former equations and assumptions don't fit with the evidence, he noted. Kim argued the mind has the capability of rewiring the brain, and what really exists in the universe is mind and spirit. In regard to healing methods, he suggested if we could merge new scientific treatments, the powers of the mind, and good nutrition, we'd take a quantum leap forw ... More »Host: George Noory

Author and adventurer Robert Young Pelton (comebackalive.com) the main guest on Tuesday's show, discussed his travels to the world's most troubled spots, and shared his insights into terrorism and war. In Afghanistan, during the US attack after 9-11, Pelton said the sounds of war, such as bombs being dropped, were "awe inspiring," and not unlike being at a "rock concert." And yet, the thing that scares him the most about being in such a place, is "the randomness of death." Pelton believes that the rationale for the 9-11 attack, was "the little guy striking back at the big guy," but since then, America has done "more damage to ourselves than the enemy," with our "blowback" (reactive postures).

He also commented that the largest group of terrorists today are in Colombia-- namely the 25,000 Marxist rebels. ... More »Host: George Noory
