Chuck Robison continues to refine his work on New Science and Forgiveness. This time at Unity in the Heart of Austin.
Can religion and science co-exist, or are these standards of belief ultimately irreconcilable?
By Chuck Robison
Organized Religion has every reason to fear and to resist modern science. Religion is focused on the past: the history of the Bible and the history of the church. Science is looking to a more informed future. Religion wants to demonize science and science successfully ignores religion.
The sad part is that science is now verifying the deepest spiritual truths, the place where it all comes together, with fact and theory. There is every reason for science and religion to move forward together, but fear, basically, keeps them apart.
Here are some examples:
Religion is historically against the concept of evolution because it connects us with other species from the past. But science takes that same information and sees that in humans, there is a target for our evolution. And that target is a new, evolved human named Homo Luminous, Man filled with Light. This is what religion says is our goal, the New Man, but we miss seeing the target of evolution because we fear where we may have come from. We simply refuse to see our connection to monkeys. But nowhere is it written that God is prohibited from using whatever process He wishes to reach his goals.
Science says we are all one, and shows, at the quantum level, the connections are remarkable and universal. Bell’s theorem shows that when two particles are joined in a field they will spin always in the same direction regardless of the space between them or attempts to reverse the spin of one. But somehow the religions see this as a threat, while at the same time declaring that in the field of The Christ, we are all one.
Advanced scientists today understand that new science is more like magic and miracles than it is like the old Newtonian Physics. Our religions have accepted the speed of light as a standard but when we introduce Super Luminal speed as being even faster than light, that seems like useless magic. But this newly understood speed makes it possible for truly instantaneous communications with all other beings anywhere in our Universe.
It was Einstein who said that both Science and Religion are climbing the same mountain and will some day reach the pinnacle and will shake hands. That time has come. With it comes the realization that, as James R. Lowell’s words for the hymn, ‘Once to Every Man and Nation’, so clearly state: “Time makes ancient good uncouth.”
Like it or not, we are in a New Age, by whatever name, and new rules and new insights are being introduced and established and they unite Religion and Science in ways that make what seemed like ancient truth to be uncouth.

What New Oceans? Jeff Simpson has been immersed in his ocean adventures and discoveries for the past quarter century. During this time, all of the global oceans have changed and been degraded. Here, Jeff talks about what has happened in just his lifetime to the oceans, what that means personally to him and how this trend is going to affect all of us.
Jeff is an old friend and we are delighted to present him to you in this challenging interview. Jeff gives a review of his life and especially his involvement in the SCUBA business.
In bringing Jeff to our viewers, he allows us to see many of the complex talents that make up this accomplished artist, musician and adventurer. In the last two minutes of the interview, you will see a wonderful wit as he observes the human drama in today’s light.
June 17, 2014. Jeff sent the following note: “This just stuns me. I have been wondering ever since you asked the question of me about the size of the plastic trash gyre in the Pacific Ocean so I looked it up. I keep finding estimates that say it is “much larger than the State of Texas, almost twice the size of the State of Texas.“
June 19, 2014 National Geographic ran this article:
“With Millions of Tons of Plastic in Oceans, More Scientists Studying Impact
A surprising amount of our garbage ends up in the sea. Can it ever be cleaned up?

Fishermen set out amid floating garbage off the shore of Manila Bay in the Philippines on June 8, 2013.
Consider this: The amount of global trash is expected to rise every year for the rest of the century. With no intervention, the growing garbage heap won’t even peak by 2021.
Since most marine debris originates on land, that grim prognosis, say researchers at the University of Georgia, could spell disaster for the oceans, creating an environmental hazard often compared in scope with climate change.
“We estimate we’re going to have millions of tons of plastic going into the ocean with, so far, unknown consequences,” says Jenna Jambeck, an environmental engineer at the university, who is among a group of scientists pursuing a new phase of research on ocean trash and measuring its impact on the environment and marine life. The University of Georgia group works as part of the University of California at Santa Barbara’s National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis.
But while climate change is still mired in politics and is a target of naysayers, the trouble in the oceans is an easier issue to address because it is so visible. “The one thing this issue has going for it over climate change is that you can see the garbage,” Jambeck says.
Ocean debris grabbed the international spotlight this spring during the search for the missing Malaysian jet, when multiple satellite images of floating debris repeatedly turned out to be garbage instead of pieces of the Boeing 777. (See “Plane Search Shows World’s Oceans Are Full of Trash.”)
Secretary of State John Kerry hopes to highlight the issue again next week by making marine trash one of the main topics at a two-day oceans conference that begins Monday. Kerry hopes to frame the challenges that lie ahead, including climate change-related ocean acidification and the threat of overfishing.
But the dilemma caused by the growing tonnage of mostly plastic debris is so complex, it has created a new interdisciplinary field of study. Scientists like Jambeck are examining a litany of new issues that range from the toxicity of plastics ingested by marine animals to the politics and economics of solid waste management in developing nations.
New Questions for an Old Problem
Seafarers have known for decades that the oceans are trash dumps, the ultimate sinkholes for all global garbage. So far, 136 species of marine animals have been found entangled in debris. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the first such discovery was made in 1944, when northern fur seals turned up trapped in rubber “collars” that were the remains of Japanese food-drop bags from the Aleutian campaign in World War II.
But scientific research into marine garbage is only a decade or so old. NOAA, for example, launched its Marine Debris Program only in 2006, after Congress passed the Marine Debris Act at the urging of Senator Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii).
The defining moment of ocean debris research, says Jambeck, was when scientists discovered that ocean debris was no longer an assemblage of cloth, wood, and ceramics, but was composed almost entirely of plastic. Most of that is micro-plastic, meaning it has decayed and broken down into microscopic pieces that float in the water column. Richard Thompson, a British scientist scheduled to speak at Kerry’s conference, first highlighted the problem in 2004 in a paper titled “Lost at Sea: Where Is All the Plastic?”
“Once micro-plastics entered the picture and it was being ingested by marine life, it was a whole new ballgame,” Jambeck says. “That’s when the alarms started going off.”
Jambeck and her team’s research, to be published later this year, will provide new estimates of how much garbage is produced globally every year, how much garbage comes from developing countries lacking garbage collection systems, and how much litter is produced by developed countries. All trash has the potential to reach the oceans.
Yet despite the new burst of scientific study, solving the problem in the face of an increasing volume of ocean trash seems an almost insurmountable task.
An alliance of 48 plastic manufacturers from 25 countries—all members of the Global Plastics Associations for Solutions on Marine Litter—has pledged to help prevent marine debris and encourage recycling. Several manufacturers are now marketing products made partly from recycled ocean plastics and abandoned fishing gear.
But the consensus among many scientists, including NOAA’s, is that cleaning up the oceans can potentially cause more harm than good. Cleaning up micro-plastics could also inadvertently sweep up plankton, which provides the basis for the marine food chain and half of the photosynthesis on Earth.
Ocean trash is driven by currents into loosely formed garbage “patches” that Dianna Parker, a NOAA spokesperson, says are more accurately described as “peppery soup” filled with grain-size plastic bits. The word “patch” suggests a defined size and location, when in fact floating debris is constantly moving, shifting with seasonal weather, and changing in shape and size.
Cleaning up even one of these areas seems impossible. Not surprisingly, the largest patch is in the largest ocean—the Pacific, which covers a third of the planet. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, as it is known, is often said to be twice the size of Texas. It actually extends, at times, from Japan to San Francisco, and varies in shape and density. According to NOAA, cleaning up less than one percent of the North Pacific would take 68 ships working 10 hours a day for a year.
Beach cleanups help, but are costly and ineffective. The Ocean Conservancy, the international leader in coastal cleanups, has collected some 180 million tons in three decades of work. “We have now created the world’s best database for what actually happens on our beaches,” says Andreas Merkl, the group’s CEO. “We are the largest end-of-the-pipe, ocean-specific trash entity.”
San Francisco spends $6 million a year cleaning up cigarette butts alone, according to NOAA figures in a report called the “The Honolulu Strategy: A Global Framework for Prevention and Management of Marine Debris.” The Honolulu Strategy, developed at a NOAA conference in 2011, notes that a more effective solution is to prevent debris from being swept into the oceans in the first place.
But as long as some countries lack the ability to efficiently collect garbage from its citizens, that garbage will continue to end up in the ocean.
Plastic-Making Technology Spreads
Ted Siegler, a partner at DSM Environmental Services, a waste management firm in Windsor, Vermont, has spent a career helping developing countries set up garbage collection systems.
“In many ways, this is really simple. This is putting trucks on the road and picking up the garbage and bringing it to a proper place,” he says. “But none of that is occurring in almost all of the places that I’ve been working in the last 20 years.”
The complication, Siegler says, is the speed with which plastic manufacturing technology has spread globally.
“I could walk into a guy’s garage in Jordan and he would be blowing film to create plastic bags. Or walk into an industrial shop in Vietnam and a guy would have a brand-new Chinese knockoff of a Frito-Lay packaging machine,” he says.
“There is no end in sight to how much plastic we are going to be producing and how much we are going to be using, and that’s the scary part. If it’s important now, it’s going to be much more important ten years from now.”

2014-07-05: This just in from Jeff: “I read an article not long ago that was the summary of a 3 years study of sea and sea-shore birds that were found dead. The idea was to try to draw a common thread for cause of death if one existed. It did. Over 90% of the birds were found to have so much plastic in their stomachs and craws, that they cold not process out of their bodies, that they essentially starved to death because there was no room for food.
Doesn’t that make you proud?”

This next video is the question and answer period and it starts off with a great exchange.
Dr. Joe Dispenza came to our home studio on Friday the 13th and graced us with this powerful interview. Much of it is based on his book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, which is a comprehensive how-to book on making a major change in your life at your willing.
Joe Dispenza, D.C., studied biochemistry at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. He also holds a BS degree with an emphasis in Neuroscience. Dr. Dispenza also received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating magna cum laude.
Dr. Dispenza’s postgraduate training and continuing education has been in neurology; neuroscience; brain function and chemistry; cellular biology; memory formation; and aging and longevity. He is an invited member of Who’s Who in America, an honorary member of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, the recipient of a Clinical Proficiency Citation for clinical excellence in doctor-patient relationships from Life University, and a member of Pi Tau Delta – the International Chiropractic Honor Society.
Over the past decade, Dr. Dispenza has lectured in 26 different countries on six continents educating people about the role and function of the human brain. He has taught thousands of people how to re-program their thinking through scientifically proven neuro-physiologic principles. As a result, this information has taught many individuals to reach their specific goals and visions by eliminating self-destructive habits. His approach, taught in a very simple method, creates a bridge between true human potential and the latest scientific theories of neuroplasticity. He explains how thinking in new ways, as well as changing beliefs, can literally rewire one’s brain. The premise of his work is founded in his total conviction that every person on this planet has within them, the latent potential of greatness and true unlimited abilities.
Joe uses current brain research, epigenetics, quantum physics, and his own life experiences to open the reader’s eyes to the possibility of positive and self-willed life changes.
Joe was one of the “stars” in “What The Bleep Do You Know?” and is highly respected for his work and his presentations and seminars.
Jean Logan is a unique Healer who has developed a one-of-a-kind healing system that combines ancient glyphs with a powerful spiritual connection and global reach. In this SKYPE interview, Jean discusses her two books, how the process works, how it has travelled all over the world and how it is being constantly updated as more and more healing powers are discovered. Chuck and Karen used the Glyphs with great success as part of the knee surgeries they both has this past summer.
So far, Jean has put all of this information into two books and a third is in the process of being written. Both books are currently available from Amazon and we suggest you buy hard copies as you will then be able to cut out the glyphs for actual use outside the book. Jean explains this in the interview. The first book, Unlocking the Power of Glyphs, discusses some of the process and has specific glyphs for healing and improvement, such as increased abundance.
Her second book, Sacred Symbols of Light, is a discussion of how Jean has discovered these revealed symbols work. This is a remarkable story in that Jean was given this information and went on to take full control of the publishing process. She did the art for each glyph and found ways to use the glyphs locally on a person’s body a Chuck did in his knee surgery and also ways to project the power of these glyphs at a distance.
You will want to watch the whole interview as Jean is very well informed and completely open and authentic in this discussion we had with her about this powerful new healing tool.
Although Panchastavi was written more than a thousand years ago, it remains one of the five most important books in the world. You might wonder why it came to light at this particular point in time. The answer is simple: Because today the world is being decimated by sectarian wars, and Panchastavi can solve the problem.
The book had been lost to all but a tiny few Kashmiri pandits until Gopi Krishna brought it to light. Only he could have translated it into English accurately. This limited first edition is also unique because it includes the original Sanskrit text for future scholars.
“Judged from the point of view of Karma, this little book, containing no more than 146 verses, couched in a metaphorical vein, crowded with archaic and mythical concepts and notions is yet a valuable guide to a science, still in the making, concerned with the baffling mystery of consciousness. The unknown author of this work unfolds in figurative language the germs of what time will prove to be the greatest discovery ever made by mankind. This discovery, when pursued further with the methods known to science, will not only throw light on the still obscure problems of mind, but also start a chain of revolutionary thinking till the whole area of human life becomes transformed in consonance with the still hidden laws ruling the spiritual destiny of the human race.” — From the Introduction to “Panchastavi.”
Printed on 70 lb. acid-free stock, and case-bound in bonded leather, the book is meant to be passed on from one generation to the next for centuries. 280 pages with Gopi Krishna’s introduction.
The price is $40, plus $5 for S.&H. in the U.S. $15 S.&H. overseas. Order from Bethel Publishers, 86 Wallacks Drive, Stamford, CT 06902.
Michael Tellinger, author, scientist, explorer, has become a real-life Indiana Jones, making groundbreaking discoveries about ancient vanished civilizations at the southern tip of Africa. His continued efforts and analytical scientific approach have produced stunning new evidence that will force us to rethink our origins and rewrite our history books.
Michael has become an international authority on the origins of humankind and the vanished civilizations of southern Africa. Scholars have told us that the first civilization on Earth emerged in a land called Sumer some 6000 years ago. New archaeological and scientific discoveries made by Michael Tellinger, Johan Heine and a team of leading scientists, show that the Sumerians and even the Egyptians inherited all their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa more than 200,000 years ago… mining gold. Michael covers that part of our history in his book, Slave Species of God.
Michael’s research reveals many of the latest scientific measurements and presents evidence that this vanished civilization had an astute knowledge of the laws of nature and the generation of free ENERGY from Mother Earth for all their needs. They used the power of sound and frequency as a source of energy, which underpins the scientific conclusions reached by Michael. In his book Temples Of The African Gods he graphically exposes these discoveries that will be the catalyst for rewriting our ancient human history.
