1998

Years ago, noted science teacher and writer Chet Raymo embarked upon his own quest to reconcile the miracle stories he learned as a child with the science he learned as an adult. Skeptics and True Believers is the culmination of that search. Acknowledging that the scientific and the spiritual communities are increasingly split, Raymo builds strong bridges between them. He illustrates his argument with thought-provoking stories offering compelling evidence that religion should embrace the reliable knowledge of the world that sciences provides, while science should respect and nourish humankind's need for spiritual sustenance.

Gods, Genes and Consciousness
Nonhuman Intervention in Human History

- Paul Von Ward

2004

Call them gods, angels, ETs, or spirit entities--beings more advanced than humans have influenced our history. They shaped our religions, our genes, our technology and our cultures. In fact, it appears that they provided the impetus for modern civilization.

Paul Von Ward calls them Advanced Beings, or ABs. His review of sacred texts, myths and legends, and contemporary reports shows that all such entities fit into a natural universe. Historical, archeological and scientific evidence demonstrates that we've had their help along the way--and scientists, religious leaders, and governments continue to ignore or deny it. Why?

Von Ward explains that the question of how to deal with the effects of such contacts is at the center of a covert struggle for control of consciousness. He shows how generations have been conditioned to ignore or suppress their experience, despite the fact that every day, thousands still claim contact with a god or another AB.
