RobertJMarksIIWe are joined by Dr. Robert J. Marks II, Distinguished Professor of Engineering at Baylor University, for a discussion on his newly-published book Introduction to Evolutionary Informatics. Co-authored with the mathematician and philosopher Dr. William A. Dembski and the software engineer Dr. Winston Ewert, the book applies advances in information theory to current models of evolution and assesses the case for Intelligent Design in nature.

Dr. Marks's eponymous honours include the Zhao-Atlas-Marks (ZAM) time-frequency distribution in the field of signal processing, the Cheung–Marks theorem in Shannon sampling theory and the Papoulis-Marks-Cheung (PMC) approach in multidimensional sampling. He was instrumental in defining the field of computational intelligence, and with his colleagues developed the temporal convolutional neural network, widely used in deep learning. He is also Fellow of the IEEE and the Optical Society of America.

In 2008 Dr. Marks appeared in the documentary movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed starring Ben Stein, and in 2013 he was listed among "The 50 Most Influential Scientists in the World Today" by TheBestSchools.org.

A Christian since 1970, Marks served for 17 years as the faculty advisor to the University of Washington's chapter of Campus Crusade for Christ. He is married (42 years) with three children, three grandchildren, two dogs and a stupid horse.

FrankPhoto

This week's interview with Frank Johnson will be slightly delayed until after the weekend, but I'm expecting to post it on Tuesday (May 30th).

We shall be joined by our good friend Frank Johnson of the Ancient Aliens Debunked blog for a casual and light-hearted chat on the subject of the History Channel's Ancient Aliens series.

Long-term listeners will recognise Frank from his photograph here, and will recall that he has joined us twice before as one of The Fireside Nephilim Boys for our TMR New Year celebrations of 2016 and 2017.

Frank Johnson has for several years researched and written for Chris White's Ancient Aliens Debunked blog, and was involved in researching for Chris's "debunkumentary" Ancient Aliens Debunked. (His more recent posts can be found here: http://ancientaliensdebunked.com/author/frank-johnson/)

  

 
                
 

 

GEdwardGriffinWe expect to be joined by the author, lecturer and film-maker G. Edward Griffin, for a conversation on his forthcoming Red Pill Expo (to be held in Bozeman, Montana on the 23rd and 24th of June), and to discuss issues relating to the so-called "Truth Movement". What is the Truth Movement? And what are its aims? Indeed, is it even meaningful to speak of "the" Truth Movement at all? And, to quote from Tom Secker, "Is the Truth Movement dead?"

G. Edward Griffin is the Founder of Freedom Force International, and is listed in Who's Who in America. His research has led him into areas such as archaeology, ancient Earth history, the Federal Reserve System, international banking, terrorism, internal subversion, the history of taxation, US foreign policy, the science and politics of cancer therapy, the Supreme Court, and the United Nations. Perhaps his best-known book is The Creature from Jekyll Island.

He has served on the board of directors of The US National Health Federation and The International Association of Cancer Victors and Friends and is Founder and President of The Cancer Cure Foundation. He is the founder of The Coalition for Visible Ballots, a grassroots organisation for the elimination of vote fraud made possible by electronic voting systems.

   

 
          
 

 

KyleGreenwood

We shall welcome Dr. Kyle Greenwood (PhD, Hebrew Union College), associate professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Colorado Christian University, for a discussion on his thought-provoking book Scripture and Cosmology, published by InterVarsity Press.

"Christians often claim to hold a biblical worldview. But what about a biblical cosmos view? From the beginning of Genesis we encounter a vaulted dome above the earth—a "firmament"—like the ceiling of a planetarium. Elsewhere we read of the earth sitting on pillars...

As Kyle Greenwood shows, the language of the Bible is also that of the ancient Near Eastern palace, temple and hearth. There was no other way of thinking or speaking of earth and sky or the sun, moon and stars. But when the psalmist looked at the heavens, the delicate fingerwork of God, it evoked wonder. Even today it is astronomy and cosmology that invoke our awe and point toward the depths of divine mystery.

Greenwood helps us see how the best Christian thinkers have viewed the cosmos in light of Scripture, and grappled with new understandings as science has advanced from Aristotle to Copernicus to Galileo and the galaxies of deep space. It's a compelling story that both illuminates the text of Scripture and helps us find our own place in the tradition of faithful Christian thinking and interpretation."—IVP

  

 
         

               

CrossRoadsCover

C. R. Hiker, author of the book Crossroads (WestBowPress 2016) will join us to share his experience of embarking upon an inter-rail journey of evangelism across nine European countries carrying a message of God’s mercy to the people he met along the way.

Carl, who has been an Evangelical Christian for thirty years and holds a PhD in Educational Science, created the book (with the help of his illustrator, Dave Budish) in the hope of inspiring people to engage in inter-rail, face-to-face evangelism.

          

               

       

GraemeMacQueen

Dr. Graeme MacQueen has kindly agreed to join us again to discuss the subject: War as a System. Dr. MacQueen has appeared on TMR twice before, first to talk about his book The 2001 Anthrax Deception, and second to discuss his research into Eyewitness Evidence of Explosions in the Twin Towers on 9/11.

Dr. MacQueen received his Ph.D. in Buddhist Studies from Harvard University and taught in the Religious Studies Department of McMaster University for 30 years. While at McMaster he became founding Director of the Centre for Peace Studies at McMaster, after which he helped develop the B.A. program in Peace Studies and oversaw the development of peace-building projects in Sri Lanka, Gaza, Croatia and Afghanistan. He was a member of the organising committee of the Toronto Hearings held on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and is co-editor of The Journal of 9/11 Studies.

    

                        

    

PaulCraigRoberts

At some point Dr. Paul Craig Roberts will join us to discuss his book The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism, published by Clarity Press.

In addition to having held numerous senior academic positions in universities, Dr. Roberts was an associate editor and columnist for The Wall Street Journal, and was appointed by President Reagan as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy during Reagan's first term in office, following which he served as a consultant to both the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Commerce. Dr. Roberts is now the Chairman of The Institute for Political Economy.

    

           

May God bless you, and thanks for listening,

Julian.
