Paranormal & Supernatural Topics

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.

Paranormal & Supernatural Topics

Date: Friday - November 30, 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: Alasdair Wickham, Open Lines

In the first half of the program, George Noory welcomed author Alasdair Wickham (book link) for a discussion on a variety of paranormal and supernatural related topics, including ghosts, demons, black magic, and hybrid creatures. Wickham recalled his first encounter with a ghost which occurred when he was a teenager living in his grandparents' house. According to Wickham, he was awakened by strange sounds one night and walked out of his bedroom to find what he described as "darkness in the middle of a darkness" staring back at him. From that experience Wickham learned that ghost do not harm those who witness them. The same cannot be said of demons, however, as they are able to interact with and possess humans, he said.

Wickham acknowledged the reality of demonic forces noting that "from the universal experience of humans throughout history I think you can say that demons exist." He cautioned against simply labeling any troublesome entity as a demon and suggested attempting to find out what it actually is before calling in an exorcist. Wickham talked about poltergeists as well, which he placed somewhere in between demons and ghosts. They are destructive, mischievous, can move things and talk through people, and must run their course, he explained. He referenced a series of poltergeist events in England in the 1970s that were witnessed by numerous people.

Wickham also spoke about cursed movies, such as Superman and Poltergeist which ended in the premature death of some of the participants, sightings of half-human half-bird/animal creatures, as well as ritualistic killings. He shared the case of a murder victim thought to have been involved in supernatural worship and witchcraft who endured the ancient triple death ritual—he was drugged then strangled, stabbed, and hit over the head.

The remainder of the show featured Open Lines.

DNA Photographed for the First Time

Professor Enzo di Fabrizio and colleagues from the University of Genoa, Italy, have taken the first direct photograph of a strand of DNA, the structure that contains the genetic instructions of all living things. The remarkable image was created with a scanning electron microscope and clearly shows the famous DNA double helix predicted by scientists James Watson and Francis Crick nearly 60 years ago. The researchers hope the new technique will one day allow them to view single molecules of DNA interact with other biomolecules. More at Mail Online.
