The ‘Big Science’ Threat

By Marsha Oaks

No one group has a monopoly on truth, and that includes mainstream science, or as Ben Stein calls it: “Big Science.” In fact, after watching these three videos you may come to conclude that our scientific institutions have demonstrat­ed not a little disregard for what the truth may actually be. You knew that though. EXPELLED—NO INTELLIGENCE ALLOWED Ben Stein On this DVD, Stein—economist, lawyer, actor, social commentator, and former White House presidential speech­writer—sets out to tackle one of the biggest questions ever asked: Was life…

BY MARSHA OAKS

Emerging Threats & the Bible

By Marsha Oaks

Lately conservative Christians have shown a growing interest in the kinds of subject matter investigated regularly by Atlantis Rising, albeit from their own traditional, biblically based perspectives. Here are a couple current DVDs to make the point.   TRANSHUMANISM: Recreating Humanity Revolution Films This brand new film explains the shocking reality of “Transhumanism,” a developing trend within the scientific community and among technological enthusiasts.

Lost Ancient Technology

BY MARSHA OAKS

Since its inception, this magazine has devoted considerable space to the topic of lost ancient technology. We even produced a video/DVD on the subject, Technologies of the Gods, and a book Forbidden History. Now two of the re­searchers who played key roles in much of our coverage have teamed up to produce a DVD of their own. ANCIENT TECHNOLOGY IN EGYPT David Hatcher Childress and Christopher Dunn “Archaeology is largely the study of history’s toolmakers,” says Chris Dunn, “and archaeologists understand a soci­ety’s level of…

For Those with Eyes to See

BY MARSHA OAKS

While the crop circle phenomenon has long been a hot topic in these pages, it’s been virtually ignored by the main­stream media—unless you count the space given to hoaxers.

Nev­ertheless, undeterred by the epidemic of denial currently passing for skepticism,…

Life Beyond the Grave?

By Marsha Oaks

Life beyond the grave provides much background for each of the offerings in this issue, but as you will see, there are many different ways to approach the subject.   ANGELS IN DISGUISE Grizzly Adams Productions Are there really angels among us? Some question whether angels exist at all. Some have no doubt that they do; and, of course, there are those who don’t even question it, because they “know” it just can’t be so. Here, then, are true life accounts of astonishing rescues, miraculous…
