God.org: Are You There? On the Deeper Meaning of ESP  

God.org: Are You There? On the Deeper Meaning of ESP
©2001, 96 pages, 4.5" x 6", ISBN: 0-9610232-8-7
This popular-language book has two opposing themes: (1) The preoccupied leaders of science have used circular logic to support their 18th Century belief that man is purely physical and, hence, that there can be no God and no basis for an unselfish morality. (2) The author, a physicist Fellow of the AAAS, explains why, after 50 years of university research, he is convinced by his own and other's experiments that ESP occurs as a nonphysical attribute of man. This leaves open such questions as "Is there a God?"

©1995, 200 pages, 8.5" x 11", ISBN: 0-9610232-6-0, back cover shown
Case studies of the crumbling of Western culture. Included topics:
A short history of parapsychology since 1882 Scientific decline of the American Society for Psychical Research.
A short history of parapsychology since 1882 Healing by prayer or is it psychokinesis?
A short history of parapsychology since 1882 Christian Science in extremis. Therapeutic Touch as alchemy.

The essence of Western science is simply careful observation coupled with critical thought; in other words, the disciplined use of our senses and our brains in tandem. Science is not an ideology but the distillation of human intellectual experience in our slow climb up the evolutionary ladder. (p. 159).

The back cover of this book is a frameable color photograph of a detail from Michelangelo's Last Judgment on the wall of the Sistine Chapel.
