Last Show Recap

Giant Owls & Thunderbirds

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.

Giant Owls & Thunderbirds

Show Archive
Date: Friday - June 30, 2006
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Open Lines, Mark Hall, Richard C. Hoagland

During the first half of the program, Ian Punnett welcomed writer Mark Hall, who talked about reported sightings of giant owls and other mysterious behemothic birds. Hall said American Indian legends as well as modern accounts speak about such birds, particulary in the West Virginian Appalachian Mountains. Some of these 'great owls' are reportedly man-sized with 10-ft wingspans, Hall explained, and were probably the inspiration behind the mothman stories of the 1960s.

Hall shared reports about thunderbirds as well, which he said have been seen from Alaska to Florida (perhaps because these enormous birds are migratory). According to Hall, contemporary thunderbirds are colored black or battleship gray and have 15- to 20-ft wingspans. He described an incident that took place in July 1977 when a young boy from Lawndale, Illinois was picked up by one of two thunderbirds flying overhead. Hall said a few days later two enormous birds were photographed in an area south of Lawndale.
