The Neo-Darwinian Evolution Theory Based on Chance is Now Discredited by Modern Science
A review by Dr Richard Cocks of the book “Evolution 2.0” by Perry Marshall
Neo-Darwinism is the “Modern Synthesis” of Darwin’s theory of natural selection with the idea of random genetic mutations; genes having been discovered after Darwin’s time.
Unquestionably there is still widespread acceptance of or at least lip service to Neo-Darwinism. This is possibly because Neo-Darwinists have been arguing for years that it was accepted science in their debates with creationists. However, there is a growing consensus among practicing biologists and particularly physiologists that the Neo-Darwinian doctrine of evolution and speciation driven by random mutation and natural selection is simply not supported by the evidence….

Above, the reviewer Richard Cocks, is a philosopher professor and the Rev. Michael Cock’s son.
Below, Michael himself has added a few thoughts to Richard’s review and as an extension to Perry Marshall’s work and book (Bruce Scott-Hill, co-editor):
Universal Mind and Morphogenetic Fields
The theory of evolution just described seems most plausible. The mind of the organism is involved in its own evolution.
We need to remind ourselves that the All in All is undivided. All is entangled with all else, in and beyond space and time (associated with the reality of quantum entanglement). In the last result we cannot really fully understand yet, what causes what. Take the migratory bird, the godwit; migrating from the shores of Alaska to the shores of Canterbury in New Zealand, many thousands of kilometres to the South. We know that quantum physics guides its journey, but where is the “map” that guides even the fledglings to the south and on the return journey? Read More…
Michael Tymn and Saint Stephen on Why Doubting the Afterlife is a Good Thing
Michael Tymn writes the following in a November 2019 article :
One of the arguments made by so-called skeptics in opposition to the belief that consciousness survives death is that if there is an omniscient God behind it all “He” should be able to do a better job of providing proof of “His” existence and that of an afterlife. They ignorantly assume that there is no reason not to know with absolute certainty that this life is part of a larger life.
Back in the 1970s, Saint Stephen said something very similar:
Then you say, “Would it not be easier if the Lord our God were to make it very clear to us what the purpose is and what the working of that purpose is, and why and how, and when and whom?” You have asked questions like this, Olive.

Two Great Minds With The Same Viewpoint
I came across these two amazingly similar quotes by accident recently, both by two wonderful people, Stephen Hawking and The Dalai Lama, which I thought might be of significance to Ground of Faith readers. Particularly currently where our world seems filled with division and conflicting partisan political viewpoints. Read More…
Surely Some Mediums Today Could Rightly Be Called Modern Prophets
Many Christians wrongly accept the admonishments of the Old Testament regarding mediums and ignore those teachings of the New Testament such as: “I will send them prophets and messengers” (Luke 11, 49). Read More…
Scientific Validation: that Mediums are Separate from the Entities they Channel – by using Voice and Brain Wave Pattern Analysis
It is always desirable to use science (if possible) to determine validity. Because of my passion for science – after all science is surely the best measure to learn about the world around us, I was delighted to find recently experimental evidence using both voice and brain wave pattern readings and analysis to test for medium authenticity. In all experiments, results showed conclusively that the mediums were separate from the afterlife entities they channelled. Detail is given in an extract from the book “Our Eternal Self” by Dr. R. Craig Hogan, Chapter 2. Read More…

Review of Gary Schwartz’s book from our advisory Editor, Mike Tymn
“If you are going to create more light for our world, you must be willing to endure a little heat.” So Dr. Gary Schwartz, the author of this book, quotes a Hawaiian spiritual leader he met during a funeral in Hawaii.

Thirty Reasons Why the Afterlife Evidence is Ignored or Rejected
Posted on 06 January 2020, 10:36
To any open-minded person who has thoroughly studied the psychical research that took place between 1850 and 1935, the evidence suggesting that consciousness lives on after death should be overwhelming. The evidence developed in recent years, primarily in the areas of near-death experiences, clairvoyance… Read more
Retired U.S. Navy Commander Experiences Mystical Writing
Posted on 29 November 2010, 15:24
The line separating inspirational writing from automatic writing is often difficult to identify. Generally, inspirational writing is said to be spirit-inspired and coming primarily from the subconscious of the person, while automatic writing is said to involve little of the person’s subconscious and to come primarily from a spirit communicator without too much interference by the automatist’s brain, conscious or subconscious.

Why The Afterlife Is Beyond Science

Co-founder in 1882 of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR), Frederic W. H. Myers, a Cambridge scholar, is sometimes referred to as the “Father of Psychical Research.” As Myers came to realize during his lifetime, mediumship is very complex and does not easily lend itself to human understanding or to scientific research.
