  • Big Bang Relies on Unnatural Causes

  • Darwin’s Sacred Imposter: Recognizing Missed Warning Signs

    In order for a human brain to “see” something external, the data patterns captured by the eyes must be associated with related patterns stored in memory. When they match, the mind accurately perceives things. Thus, prior education greatly influences the … Continue reading
