  • Captain Blue on the Blue Blazes - The First Solo Thru-Hike of Ohio's 1,444 Mile Buckeye Trail

    by Andy Niekamp
    Imagine walking 1,444 miles with a backpack carrying the bare necessities of life, 26 maps, and a whole lot of grit. When three-time Appalachian Trail Hiker, Andy “Captain Blue” Niekamp decided to hike Ohio’s Buckeye Trail, he took on the challenge of his life. On this 88-day adventure, Captain Blue found things he didn’t know he had: a Buckeye Trail family who assisted and encouraged him; a home state rich with scenic beauty and history; the physical, mental, and emotional stamina to travel Ohi... more
  • Microvita

    by Dr. Hans-Joachim Rudolph, MRI

    This book constitutes the fascinating work of Dr. Hans-Joachim Rudolph to portray the concept of Microvita in a physics framework that can be studied objectively. It offers a smooth integration of Microvita (units of consciousness) into a well-grounded scientific scenario, consistent with the equations of Newton, Maxwell, Einstein, and Schrödinger. It also provides a link between the worlds of perception and conception and implies that the distinct disciplines of physics, biology, psycho... more

  • The Relativistic Rocketeer

    by James M. Essig
    In this book, we explore far-ranging techniques for future relativistic rockets. In this book, we explore the notion of converting a baryonic standard model spacecraft into a neutrino-like state. All the text from my book ?Call of The Cosmic Wild: Relativistic Rockets for the New Millennium, 6th Expanded Edition? has been included but interrupted by occasional new material to note and make clear the results of applying the neutrination mode to the spacecraft.
  • Religion in Medicine: Volume I

    by John B. Dawson
    The purpose of this treatise is: 1) to draw attention to the presence of situations arising within medical practice in which religious beliefs play an important role. 2) to emphasize the fact that most students and many doctors are given insufficient training in such matters, which are of considerable import to a fair percentage of the public. 3) to provide a few examples of what is meant by a religio-medical situation, and a bibliography for further exploration by the initiate in such matters. ... more
  • Quantitative Ethnography

    by David Williamson Shaffer
    How can we make sense of the deluge of information in the digital age? The new science of Quantitative Ethnography dissolves the boundaries between quantitative and qualitative research to give researchers tools for studying the human side of big data: to understand not just what data says, but what it tells us about the people who created it. Thoughtful, literate, and humane, Quantitative Ethnography integrates data-mining, discourse analysis, psychology, statistics, and ethnography into a b... more

  • Fifty Clever Bastards

    by Martin Fone
    The road to becoming a successful inventor is not an easy one. Paved with difficulties, roadblocks and sometimes sheer, back-to-the-drawing-board failure, the challenging journey has meant that plenty of geniuses have been lost to history and never given the credit they deserved for creating some of the most invaluable items of our time. However, over the course of Fifty Clever Bastards these same forgotten inventors and their unbelievable stories are about to be inducted into our illustrious Ha... more
  • Fifty Curious Questions: Pabulum for the Enquiring Mind

    by Martin Fone
    The pace of life is such that we rarely have the luxury to stop and think. We take so much on trust or assume that we know why something happens or the way things work. It is only when we stop and think that nagging doubts or questions creep into our subconscious? For those of us blessed (or is it cursed?) with an enquiring mind, once the seed of a question has been planted, we need to find the answer. The purpose of this book is to shed light on some of those nagging and irritating questions... more
  • Human Existence in the 21st Century "Realtiy, Greed, Religion and War at the End of Civilization"

    by Antoine Averie
    This is a book that explores the future of humanity in the 21st century and beyond on a world rapidly changing and adapting to the activity of over seven billion humans with no consensual awareness of limits on a single world of life. 21st century technology being used by a 10th century brain with a focus on territorial acquisition, war, class discrimination, cultural discrimination, gender discrimination, insatiable greed and power. The progress of this species is undeniable but the recent disc... more
  • Evolution Now

    by David Penny
    This is a very Popperian approach to evolutionary study. Karl Popper was a philosopher of science, who took science very seriously, and had a profound influence on the chemists and zoologists where I did my undergraduate degree. The book starts from about 1600, when people accepted that life continued to arise ?naturally,? and then moves to the pre-evolutionary concept of the fixity of species. Darwin started as a geologist in the Hutton-Lyell tradition and quickly became convinced that current ... more
  • The Science of Life and Evolution

    by John Adrian LeRoy
    This book talks about the scientific processes involved with the matter of our being and how we are evolved, as are all species when their DNA molecules react to the effects of their incoming environment and are dealt with. Some billions of years ago, DNA molecules not only came into being in the right conditions?including the presence of five elements (hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon, and phosphorous) and a moist environment when an enzyme-assisted chemical process resulted in them becoming ... more
  • The Wisdom & Wonder of Life

    by Cyrus Varan
    This book is the fruit of many hours of thinking and reading during a period of twenty years, The Wisdom & Wonder of Life, by author Dr. Cyrus Varan, is as much an exploration of the wisdom, beauty, and wonder of the visible world as it is a rational search for the cause of evolution. Dr. Varan shares the scientific and biological discoveries of the twentieth century, as well as the astronomical observations of our time, which reveal that the creation of the visible biological and world ord... more
  • UFOs

    by A. R. Roberts
    ?UFOs: What Is the Government Really Covering Up? is not just another book about the 1947 Roswell crash. Ingeniously, Roberts takes a step back and o ers an in-depth survey of the UFO phenomenon as a whole. Using familiar case studies of alien encounters as examples, he casts a wide net that shows a clear pattern of extraterrestrial visitation and the ensuing cover-up by US and world governments. In the end, the reader cannot help coming away with the same conclusion?that something is going on ... more
  • God, Darwin, and the Problem of Evil

    by James J. Garber
    The problem of evil has troubled theologians and philosophers since antiquity. Multiple solutions to this problem have been proposed over the centuries, but none has fully answered the question of why God allows evil into our lives. Author James J. Garber offers a systematic explanation of the problem of evil in his book God, Darwin, and the Problem of Evil. Garber?s answer is based on evolution as developed by Charles Darwin in the nineteenth century. Evolution, as explained by Darwin, has come... more
  • Post Secular: Science, Humanism and the Future of Faith

    by Marc Schaus
    How modern life has transformed major faiths worldwide in the twenty-first century – and what breaking new research in neuroscience, human genetics and the socioeconomic trends of today can tell us about upcoming spiritual beliefs of the future.
  • Quanto-Geometry: Overture of Cosmic Consciousness or Universal Knowledge for All

    by Joseph Jean-Claude
    Quanto-Geometric Theory is a new modern-physics theoretical model aimed at the interpretation of physical matter dynamics beyond Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity. It affords a natural and simple path to the long-sought effective unification of Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity. In doing so, the Theory stunningly derives the fundamental Quantum parameters, the Speed of Light and the Newton Gravitational Constant from one single mathematical-physics formalism. Furthermore Quanto-Geo... more
