  • Bubby's Puddle Pond: A Tortuga's Tale of the Desert

    by Carol Hageman
    Based on a mixture of fiction and the real-life behaviors of animals, Bubby's Puddle Pond: A Tortuga's Tale of the Desert takes place in a geographically unique part of the world, the Sonoran Desert. Simple yet evocative terms to paint a picture of the American Southwest's unusual flora and fauna. Intending the book to be used as a learning tool, I highlight these terms and define them in a glossary. Fact pages and a curriculum guide at the end of the book can be used in the classroom or furth... more

  • 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

  • Fifty Clever Bastards

    by Martin Fone
    The road to becoming a successful inventor is not an easy one.

  • 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

  • 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

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
