Extraordinary Creative & Psychic Powers of Animals
By Michael Goodspeed
Many followers of the Thunderbolts project are familiar with the
revolutionary research of biologist Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, author of more
than 75 scientific papers and ten books, including the internationally
acclaimed "Dogs that Know When Their Owners are Coming Home."
In controlled double-blind experiments, Sheldrake has found compelling
evidence of "interspecies telepathy," including the uncanny
(yet familiar to many pet owners) ability of dogs to anticipate when
their owners are returning home.
Like many other scientists and academicians who have presented
"positive" evidence of ESP and other "paranormal"
abilities, Sheldrake has been severely targeted by self-described
"skeptics," including such usual suspects as retired magician
James "The Amazing" Randi. Indeed, Randi's history of public
comments on Sheldrake's work bares special mention in the above video.
In a 2000 interview in Dog World magazine, Randi specifically claimed
to have debunked Sheldrake's findings on canine ESP. But when pressed
to provide evidence of the purported debunking, he could not do so.
Sheldrake elaborates in his own synopsis of the controversy: "Randi
also claimed to have debunked one of my experiments with the dog Jaytee,
a part of which was shown on television. Jaytee went to the window to wait
for his owner when she set off to come home, but did not do so before she
set off. In Dog World, Randi stated: 'Viewing the entire tape, we see that
the dog responded to every car that drove by, and to every person who
walked by.' This is simply not true, and Randi now admits that he has never
seen the tape."
While the issue of telepathy may not directly relate to the Electric
Universe, the issue of "skeptical" misconduct certainly does. It
is the height of disingenuousness for anyone to call himself a "skeptic"
who consistently behaves like an ideologue/dogmatist. The literal definition of a
skeptic is one who habitually and thoughtfully questions widely accepted beliefs.
People who call themselves "skeptics" do this rarely or never -- in fact,
most spend all of their time defending widely accepted
beliefs (as long as such beliefs are endorsed by scientific or governmental
officialdom), while attacking those who genuinely seek out alternative perspectives.
I hope that this video helps to illustrate the enormity of the stakes in these
intellectual battles. Historically, life in its every form has suffered terribly
as the result of scientific myopia and "skeptical" misconduct. With the
world's attention focused on some truly life changing controversies -- from
"global warming," to alternative energy, to an escalating global food
crisis -- the need for each individual to practice vigilant discernment, i.e.
true skepticism, has never been higher.

could change everything you thought you knew about planetary history.
Available in our
Thunderbolts of the Gods by David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill
introduces the reader to an age of planetary instability and earthshaking
electrical events in ancient times. The 108-page full-color monograph,
based on the life work of the two authors, offers a revolutionary synthesis
of historical investigation and the newly-discovered "Electric Universe."

Thunderbolts of the Gods is now packaged with the 65-minute DVD,
“Thunderbolts - The Tutorial.” This film introduces you to
the key themes of the theory, and includes interviews with the principal
figures in Electric Universe research.
