“The neural pattern in virtual reality is substantially different from the activity pattern in the real world.”

‘The pattern of activity in a brain region involved in spatial learning in the virtual world is completely different than in the real world,’ said the professor of physics, neurology, and neurobiology. UCLA neurophysicists have found that space-mapping neurons in the brain react differently to virtual reality than they do to real-world environments…”The pattern of […]

“A review of the current evidence on the dietary and health impact of whole grain cereal consumption finds that many of the myths attributed to wheat-free diets are just that – myths, and that whole grains such as wheat are beneficial for the majority of people.”

Wheat in diet: Study on health impact of wheat challenges Stone Age myths and costly diets, providing you go whole grain A review of the current evidence on the dietary and health impact of whole grain cereal consumption finds that many of the myths attributed to wheat-free diets are just that – myths, and that […]

“…there is a reason for intelligence and that reason is survival…Intelligence allows us to plan and predict what will happen further and further into the future and then act appropriately. The creature who can predict the furthest into the future will win.”

“Chance does play a huge role in evolution…Evolution is a sequence of events influenced by chance.” “We’re trying to learn about the problems that early animals faced that made intelligent behavior a favorable trait to evolve, with the goal of working our way up to understanding how early forms of intelligence evolved into the complex […]

Atheist Dogma Fail: Dream on Jerry Coyne…If Only

There is no free will or any conscious control of behavior, we have no idea how, or even if, beliefs, may effect behavior yet…the respected evolutionary biologist, Jerry Coyne, opines sounding like Oprah….ugh. “Humans may have evolved to be xenophobic and even violent towards members of “outgroups,” but we have the ability through culture and learning […]

“Sir Isaac Newton, an icon of scientific revelation, led a secret life as a scholar of the mysterious art of alchemy. “

What appears in retrospect as the crazier side of Newton’s life work began to be published over thirty years ago when his correspondence revealed him enjoining his students to attempt to acquire the Philosopher’s Stone in central Europe. Science was very unevenly developed in Newton’s age and it was a commonly held belief that science […]
