Are humans a galactic oddity, or will complex life with human abilities develop on planets with environments that remain habitable for long enough? In a clear, jargon-free style, two leading researchers in the burgeoning field of astrobiology critically examine the major evolutionary steps that led us from the distant origins of life to the technologically advanced species we are today. Are the key events that took life from simple cells to astronauts unique occurrences that would be unlikely to occur on other planets? By focusing on what life does - it's functional abilities - rather than specific biochemistry or anatomy, the authors provide plausible answers to this question. Systematically exploring the various pathways that led to the complex biosphere we experience on planet Earth, they show that most of the steps along that path are likely to occur on any world hosting life, with only two exceptions: One is the origin of life itself – if this is a highly improbable event, then we live in a rather “empty universe”. However, if this isn’t the case, we inevitably live in a universe containing a myriad of planets hosting complex as well as microbial life - a “cosmic zoo”. The other unknown is the rise of technologically advanced beings, as exemplified on Earth by humans. Only one technological species has emerged in the roughly 4 billion years life has existed on Earth, and we don’t know of any other technological species elsewhere. If technological intelligence is a rare, almost unique feature of Earth's history, then there can be no visitors to the cosmic zoo other than ourselves. Schulze-Makuch and Bains take the reader through the history of life on Earth, laying out a consistent and straightforward framework for understanding why we should think that advanced, complex life exists on planets other than Earth. They provide a unique perspective on the question that puzzled the human species for centuries: are we alone?

Over 100 million people have witnessed UFOs and have wondered: Who are they? What are their agendas? Why are they here now? Who's Who In The Cosmic Zoo? answers all these questions and more, like no other book set has ever done before. Who's Who In The Cosmic Zoo? is a 3-part series focusing on the spiritual discernment of various multidimensional beings, including Extraterrestrials, Aliens, Gods, and Angels. It describes the ancient drama that has spiraled through our galaxy for millennia, one that humans have long been enmeshed in--though most of us remain blissfully unaware of our compromised position. Who's Who In The Cosmic Zoo? is the first book set of its kind to spiritually discern ETs, Aliens, Gods, and Angels. It focuses on who the individual groups of ETs and Aliens are. Who is the 'god of this world'? Who makes up its hierarchy? Who are the ancient Gods, ETs, and Angels that are expected to return to Earth, and why now?

Book Two - Who Is God? Focuses on the Cosmic Drama which identifies and discerns 'who' are the so-called ET gods of ancient history based on both biblical and exobiblical scriptures. 'Who' are the Biblical gods, which the author proves through knowledge of Biblical Hebrew, that it is indeed a cast of characters, not just one God, as English Bible translations write. 'Who' is the god of this world, and the ancient gods aligned with him. 'Who' created the gods? The author takes the reader on a journey exploring all the different names and characters of what many call God. Exploring 'who' are the extraterrestrial gods, and who are the alien gods, and how to tell the difference. The author discerns which gods of the past come from the Draconian Empire, known as the satans, and which gods of ancient history belong to the Kingdom of Heaven. The author proves and exposes several blatant mistranslations from the original Hebrew into English, shedding light and offering understanding of how false beliefs, and religious spirits were spawned, through the meaning of 'names'. The author discerns and proves through ancient history and linguistics that Allah and the God of the Old Testament are not the same god. This book focuses on the discernment of the gods, and reveals, just 'who' the God of gods is, what the fate of the other gods are based on ancient prophecies, and why this knowledge is especially relevant to todays' socio-political and spiritual battles on earth and how it affects you. Theological subjects covered in Who Is God? are extraterrestrials and aliens in the Bible, the ancient Jewish beliefs in reincarnation and how and why it was covered up by the Church of Rome, what happens when you die, 'who' created racism and sexism on earth, the author nail's the root cause of racism antisemitism through genetic manipulations, religions and religious spiritual implants, and atheism, and how anyone can be free of such bondages. The author exposes the two opposing spirits within religions, the spirit of religion and the Holy Spirit and gives multiple examples in learning how to discern their differences, spiritually. The author gives insight into how humanity can achieve unity in faith, unity in knowledge and unity in spirit

WHO ARE THE ANGELS? Are there good and evil angels? How can you tell them apart? How does one find freedom amidst the clash of two kingdoms? Do Angels play a bigger role in human affairs on earth, than we may realize? Angels wage war against other angels, so how do we tell them apart? Is there such a thing as Human Angels born on earth? Are Angels extraterrestrials or aliens? Book Three of Who's Who in The Cosmic Zoo? proves the reality of angels, demonstrates how to discern between the fallen angels and the faithful angels of heaven. Learn 'who' they are, based on scripture and ancient texts, what are their protocols, rules of engagement, examine their hierarchy and discover the pivotal role they play at the end of this age. This understanding will create a paradigm shift in your present thinking and give you hope. Scripture says: The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. What or whom are they harvesting? This primordial drama between good and evil can be traced back to an angelic war in the heavens, involving those angels sent to earth as fallen, because of their nature and deeds. These galactic wars are the real Star Wars. These secrets are now being revealed to humanity as part of the preparation for the end of days. Keeping with the recurring theme in this five-book series is the important issue of discernment that not all aliens are extraterrestrials, not all extraterrestrials are aliens. In Book Three, you will learn how to discern between good and evil angels though their differences in ancient scriptures, history, linguistics and archeology. The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!

The universe is big. Really big. And it gets bigger every day. In Cosmological Enigmas, Mark Kidger weaves together history, science, and science fiction to consider questions about the bigness of space and the strange objects that lie trembling at the edge of infinity. What are quasars, blazars, and gamma-ray bursters? Could we ever travel to the stars? Can we really expect aliens to contact us? From the profound (what evidence do we have to support the big bang theory?) to the bizarre (can there be more than one universe and, if so, how many dimensions does it possess?) to the everyday-yet-profound (why is the sky dark at night?), Kidger explains not only what we know but how we came to know it. Reflecting on how stars shine and what may lie beyond the edge of the universe, Kidger takes us on the ultimate cosmic journey. -- John Griffiths

COVENANTS - Book Four of the Who's Who in the Cosmic Zoo? series, A Guide to ETs, Aliens, gods and Angels, discusses the impact Disclosure of Alien and Extraterrestrial Life will have on Religion and the Church. It connects the dots to ancient history and End Times Prophesies, while exposing many heresies and cover-ups along the way. It discerns between actual historical facts from the lies that were spun to purport political agendas of mind control. The disclosure of the alien presence and extraterrestrial life here on earth need not shatter anyone's faith in the Creator God, on the contrary it should expand and strengthen it. This book is a guide towards transforming the old paradigm into preparation for the final chapter of End Times Prophesies, so earth humans can walk through it awakened and restored back into right relationship with the Creator God while being empowered with the knowledge to identify the cast of characters that have long been prophesied to play out the End Game of the end of this Age. This Earth is where Heaven and Hell meet, sandwiched between two kingdoms with clashing ideologies, the middle ground of an extraterrestrial and spiritual war. COVENANTS discerns and unpacks the spiritual legal ground established between the clash of these two kingdoms on earth. A covenant is an agreement, or contract, undertaken between two or more individuals, with each understanding the terms. We have forgotten some of the terms under which we covenant with our Creator while living on earth. We can see evidence of this clash of two kingdoms through human behavior, thoughts, and spirits. It is our destiny to exercise our free will as to which kingdom we belong: The Draconian Kingdom of Darkness and Enslavement, or the Kingdom of Heaven of Light, Love and Grace. COVENANTS lances the boils of racism and anti-Semitism on our planet, by addressing the root causes of our inability to live in peace and cooperation with each other. Book Four exposes the alien agenda for what it is, and how it all fits into the ancient End Times Prophecies written down over two to three thousand years ago. Many people suffer from depression, and hopelessness about the meaning of life. There are approximately 3 billion Christians in the world, and most of them have been put under a powerful spell through the Church of Rome's indoctrination, not to question anything. It's time to question everything and discern truth from lies within the Hebrew Scriptures. Too many people have suffered unnecessarily because of the cover ups of these truths. The truths the author discloses herein, takes you on a journey through history, ancient scriptures, exopolitics and whistleblowers, proving the roots of racism, prejudice, and social injustices began with the ancient aliens' battle of their genetic warfare over humankind. The author also points you towards the direction for the solution, a solution that is offered to all of humankind at this time, and is therefore, without prejudice, but is waiting for you to claim.

The dawn of the first stars, galaxies and black holes signaled a fundamental milestone in our Universe’s evolution: the Epoch of Reionization. The light from these galactic ancestors began spreading out, ionizing virtually every atom in existence. Our Universe transitioned from darkness to light, from cold to hot, from simple and boring to the wondrous cosmic zoo we see around us today. Despite its importance, observations of reionization have been few, and their interpretation has been highly controversial. Fortunately, this is rapidly changing. We will soon enter the "Big Data” era of this mysterious epoch, driven by an upcoming wave of observations with state-of-the-art telescopes as well as new sophisticated analysis tools. The aim of this volume is to summarize the current status and future outlook of the reionization field. We bring together leading experts in many sub-disciplines, highlighting the measurements that will illuminate our understanding of reionization and the cosmic dawn: (i) 21cm interferometry; (ii) high-redshift quasar spectra; (iii) high-redshift galaxy surveys; (iv) primary and secondary anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background; (v) high-resolution studies of the metal content of early galaxies. We seek a roadmap to interpreting the wealth of upcoming observations. What is the best use of limited observational resources? How do we develop theoretical tools tailored for each observation? Ultimately, what will we learn about the epoch of reionization and our galactic ancestors?

Das Buch der imaginären Wesen geht weit über seinen ursprünglichen Titel und Rahmen - 'Handhabung der phantastischen Zoologie' - hinaus. Neben Fabeltieren von der doppelköpfigen Schlange Amphisbaena bis zum Schiffe versenkenden Riesenfisch Zaratan umfaßt das Werk auch die in-teressantesten metaphysischen Geschöpfe der menschlichen Phantasie, darunter etwa jüdische Dämonen, Swedenborgs Engel oder die nicht nur in verstöpselten Flaschen vorkommenden Dschinn. Die Lektüre der meisten Artikel wird dank des bewußt faktischen Tonfalls zu einem höchst spöttischen Vergnügen; der Anhang bietet weitergehende Informationen über die ergötzlichsten Monster der Weltliteratur.

Aufklärung jetzt

Für Vernunft, Wissenschaft, Humanismus und Fortschritt. Eine Verteidigung

Author: Steven Pinker

Page: 736

View: 2867

Eine leidenschaftliche Antithese zum üblichen Kulturpessimismus und ein engagierter Widerspruch zu dem weitverbreiteten Gefühl, dass die Moderne dem Untergang geweiht ist. Hass, Populismus und Unvernunft regieren die Welt, Wissenschaftsfeindlichkeit macht sich breit, Wahrheit gibt es nicht mehr: Wer die Schlagzeilen von heute liest, könnte so denken. Doch Bestseller-Autor Steven Pinker zeigt, dass das grundfalsch ist. Er hat die Entwicklung der vergangenen Jahrhunderte gründlich untersucht und beweist in seiner fulminanten Studie, dass unser Leben stetig viel besser geworden ist. Heute leben wir länger, gesünder, sicherer, glücklicher, friedlicher und wohlhabender denn je, und nicht nur in der westlichen Welt. Der Grund: die Aufklärung und ihr Wertesystem. Denn Aufklärung und Wissenschaft bieten nach wie vor die Basis, um mit Vernunft und im Konsens alle Probleme anzugehen. Anstelle von Gerüchten zählen Fakten, anstatt überlieferten Mythen zu glauben baut man auf Diskussion und Argumente. Anschaulich und brillant macht Pinker eines klar: Vernunft, Wissenschaft, Humanismus und Fortschritt sind weiterhin unverzichtbar für unser Wohlergehen. Ohne sie wird die Welt auf keinen Fall zu einem besseren Ort für uns alle. »Mein absolutes Lieblingsbuch aller Zeiten.« Bill Gates

An international conference entitled "Zdenek Kopal's Binary Star Legacy" was held on the occasion of the late Professor Kopal's 90th birthday in his home town of Litomyšl/Czech Republic and dedicated to the memory of one of the leading astronomers of the 20th century. Professor Kopal, who devoted 60 years of his scientific life to the exploration of close binary systems, initiated a breakthrough in this field with his description of binary components as non-spherical stars deformed by gravity, with surfaces following Roche equipotentials. Such knowledge triggered the development of new branches of astrophysics dealing with the structure and evolution of close binaries and the interaction effects displayed by exciting objects such as cataclysmic variables, symbiotic stars or X-ray binaries. Contributions to this conference included praise of the achievements of a great astronomer and personal reminiscences brought forward by Kopal's former students and colleagues, and reflected the state of the art of the dynamically evolving field of binary research, which owes so much to the pioneering work of Zdenek Kopal.
