  • The Dark Face of Heaven: True Stories of Transcendence Through Trauma

    by Janet Elizabeth Colli, Ph.D.

Dr. Janet Colli presents compelling stories of spiritual awakening, out-of-body experiences (OBEs), lucid dreams, and near-death experiences (NDEs)—revealed during trauma therapy. Those who experience a dark night of the soul often develop special awareness or enh... more

  • The Seen and the Unseen: Abortion and the Supreme Court

    by Taylor Carmichael
    The Supreme Court often writes about abortion in the nicest way possible, in cases like Roe and Danforth and Webster and Casey. But there are ugly cases, too, and the Supreme Court has to hear those cases as well. There is Simopoulos and Catholic League and Carhart and Carhart II. For every "nice" abortion case involving liberty and the autonomy of women, there is an awful case representing an atrocity that our authorities want to hide. Why is there a dead baby in a motel room bathroom? Why... more

    by Frederick Feied
    The central premise or conclusion of this work is that the struggle for survival or supremacy is the motive or driving force in the evolution of societies as well as species.
