Survival Stories

In the first half, analyst Craig Hulet offered commentary on current events, terrorism, and world conflicts. "It looks to me unbelievably clear that money is going to buy the presidency, and Jeb Bush will be the next president," he declared.

In the latter half, broadcast and print journalist Gary Grossman discussed his research into the chasm between deep time (the scientific estimate that Earth is 4.6 billion years old) and a young Earth (the claim that the planet is only 7-8,000 years old put forth by some religious groups), which serves as the backdrop for his new novel.

Survival Stories

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - May 20, 2004
Host: George Noory
Guests: Laurence Gonzales, Douglas Hagmann

Author Laurence Gonzales shared stories about how certain people survive life threatening situations and demonstrate miraculous endurance and ingenuity. Almost all of the survivors he interviewed underwent a type of spiritual transformation during the process, Gonzales noted.

One key to their success in surviving was their ability to think clearly, rather than just panicking. Trusting gut instincts was also important, he said, adding that new research is indicating that intelligence may reside throughout the body and not just in the brain.

"The body can do amazing things," if the spirit is willing, Gonzales said of the case of Aron Ralston who amputated part of his arm after he became trapped under an 800 lb. rock while on a cliff. In the case of Vito S., who broke his leg while skiing in a remote location, Gonzales described specific survival techniques he used such as breaking his movements into manageable goals, dedicating actions to loved ones, and repeating empowering mantras.

Terrorism Update

First hour guest, Douglas Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network discussed the FBI's new warning, which suggests that suicide bombings may occur in America.Hagmann said that this type of terrorism is coalescing into a real threat and estimated that there may be between 500 and 5,000 operatives within the US that could perform this type of action.
