The Science of God?
by Philip Gardiner and Gary Osborn
Mankind has developed over millions of years to arrive where we
are today, and even now we are not yet at the pinnacle of evolution,
if there can ever be such a thing.
We are evolving daily. Maybe not enough for us to see in our
short lives and maybe not physically changing with each generation,
but we are evolving ideas and technical abilities: new and truly
wonderful tools which help us, force us even, to change and adapt in
a pseudo evolutionary way.
Regardless of whether or not there is a God, simple human
knowledge of self, rationality and emotions all contribute to our
present revolutionary pace. And yet, we still need to answer the
most fundamental question of where we come from with the idea of
God. Perhaps we should try to look at the whole thing in a different
way, and by doing so, understand how we could be manipulated
because of these basic human traits.
On the face of it, historically, there does not seem to have been
much of a challenge to these evolutionary oriented beliefs until the
enlightened age of philosophy. This appears to be the time when man
challenged all ideas, even his own. The early philosophers required
their students to assume what they were being taught was wrong and
to come up with their own ideas. Although man was challenging the
assumptions of life long before the existence of the classical
philosophers. However, apart from what can be learned from their
buildings, new understanding can come from the early writings in
which secrets have been locked away for thousands of years, only to
be understood by those with the eyes to see.
We can see from these writings and structures that man has
understood, or found the need for, a clear beginning and end. A
cycle of life emerged and with it came a religious copy of this
cycle, more complex and intuitive than we could ever imagine.
Recently emerging data has put the beginning of civilisation further
back in time, and has proved that there was greater knowledge among
early peoples. With every passing day we find new evidence for the
purpose of megalithic structures. The secret resonance, the effects
of radiation causing lights in the sky, the planetary alignments,
Earth energies and pathways, the symbolism of life and death; all
these things are coming under closer scrutiny and many are being
The fact that our ancestors knew so much about the cycles of life
is partly the cause of the problem of understanding our beginning.
These ideas and beliefs in life cycles over many thousands of years
and our own in-built cyclical nature will not allow us to comprehend
anything without a start and finish.
Accepting that we do not understand is a good beginning. We, by
the very definition of being alive, with life and death cyclic
patterns, simply cannot understand the beginning, if indeed there
Our whole lives are based around cycles. The element of time
causes cycles to come into existence. Without time there are no
cycles, without cycles there is no time.
On a simple level, cycles are about birth and death, sunrise and
sunset, the waxing and waning of the moon, the changing of the
seasons, the tides of the sea, the reproductive cycle of females.
All these are inexorably linked with the entire universe. The
difference between our ancient ancestors and us is that we have
virtually forgotten about these links while their whole lives simply
revolved around the concept of the natural cycle. Our ancestors
understood that the universe and everything within it revolved
around a massive repetition of cycles.
We are only just beginning to understand the harmony in which we
have lived and the disharmony we are causing with our constant
damage of the finely balanced environment, which has taken the last
15 billion years to achieve.
The earth has subtle energy waves which some call Ley Lines and
which the Chinese call Feng Shui or Dragon Paths. These forces are
scientifically proven to exist, although much that is blatantly
unscientific is also claimed for them. Not all Ley Lines are
scientifically provable, in fact the statistics even show that Ley
Lines are “probable” give any number of sacred sites in a given area
– things do just line up by chance. Some, though, need closer
scrutiny – some evade the statistics of science and defy reason.
When we alter the environment, we alter the balance of these
paths, and in turn, the subtle balance between the earth and the
universe. We are also beginning to understand the effects we are
having, not only on the environment but also on our own psyches.
It is emerging that the energy of our surroundings does have an
effect upon our minds. For example, some people suffer from Seasonal
Affective Disorder otherwise known as SAD, as a result of the lack
of sunlight. This recently discovered cyclic problem affects us all
to some extent. This shows that if we can suffer from problems
because of a loss of sunlight, which is on the electromagnetic
spectrum, then we could, in theory, suffer other problems caused by
imbalances in other electromagnetic radiation.
It is our belief that our ancestors understood these subtleties
and even utilised them for control, harnessing the power of the
universe and the power of the mind to control the people. As if to
give the game away they placed clues for us to find. All of their
rituals, their religions, cults, gods, demigods, all of their lives,
were linked to the cycles of the universe. And this is how the
ancients understood the powers of the universe, through their gods.
They did not conceive of electromagnetic power as we do, but rather
as god given signs and portents, as the power of the god’s to be
Without cycles, there would be no life. The entire universe would
be one great chaotic soup. And according to scientists, this is how
it all began. Over the course of billions of years it settled down
into regular patterns. Thermodynamics shows us that when two systems
come together, for example hot and cold, an equilibrium is naturally
achieved, albeit dependent upon many factors such as environment,
velocity, mass and much more. This follows through from the
universal scale right down to our own bodies and lives, which find
equilibrium with the rest of the universe. Taking into account all
the factors that affect us: the solar wind and flares,
electromagnetism, gravity, heat, radiation, we still manage
eventually, to come into balance with these things.
It is our understanding of this fact, which has altered. We have
come through thousands of years of beliefs, through a hundred years
of rationalism and this perception has been lost, only now to have
been found again through modern science.
The Thermodynamic Cycle shows how nature, in relation to heat and
cold, constantly repeats itself. We can see this in the broader
aspect of the Earth's seasons, although as time goes by small
amounts of energy are lost along the way and we know that planet
Earth has only a certain life span. If the Earth kept all of its
energy it would be perpetual and would cycle forever. As it is, the
energy will be converted into something else the universe needs. On
a smaller scale, this cycle also applies to us. At death we will
convert to some other form of energy, after having lost energy all
through our lives.
Electromagnetism also has a striking and profound effect upon us.
(See article: Grid Lines of Force)
Electromagnetic Radiation waves are produced by the acceleration,
or oscillation, of an electric charge. These waves are both electric
and magnetic. The frequency of the waves can range from high to low.
Visible light is a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum, as
are X-rays, gamma rays, ultraviolet radiation, infrared radiation
and micro and radio waves.
Electromagnetic waves need no medium for transmission. Therefore
they can travel through almost anything, including space. Virtually
everything gives off electromagnetic radiation, including the sun,
the moon, stars and the Earth.
To call electromagnetic radiation 'waves', however, did not
account for all the properties discovered. Max Planck showed that
radiation occurred in finite quanta of energy and was, therefore,
also particles. We now understand radiation in two ways, particle
and wave, although they react together. This quantum theory can now
be brought into line with electromagnetic radiation. A wave and
particle is daily bombarding us and we have almost no idea what it
is doing nor the effect it has on us.
In Geophysics, we study the phenomena of the Earth's magnetic
field, the heat flow, seismic waves and the force of gravity. We
also look into the outer-space activity that can affect us, such as
solar winds and manifestations of cosmic radiation which affect the
Earth's own radiation.
In Terrestrial magnetism we have found that the magnetic field is
related to the motion of fluid, which conducts electricity within
the Earth. The rotation of the Earth within the gravitational pull
of the moon and sun periodically imposes gravitational effects upon
the earth, the changing tides and solid Earth tides, which in turn
alter the electromagnetism of the earth.
All these things happen cyclically and all these things affect
Every time a volcano erupts, the Earth's magnetic field alters
orientation and strength. The depth of the mantle increases or
decreases the conductivity of the electromagnetic wave. When the
solar wind approaches, the Earth forms a magnetic sheath, called the
magnetosphere, which acts like a giant natural dynamo more than
60,000 miles across. When the high-energy particles of solar
radiation penetrate this sheath and enter the radiation belts we see
the beautiful phenomenon called the aurora.
The electromagnetic wave possesses energy according to its
wavelength and frequency. This energy is imparted into matter when
the radiation is absorbed.
Michael Faraday even went so far as to say that the
electromagnetic field was the lowest form of physical reality.
The resonance caused by the various frequencies of the particle
waves affects the molecules within our bodies. Every molecule in our
body is held in place by various methods. When we are bombarded
daily with fluctuating and cyclic electromagnetic radiation these
molecules are moved, including those in our brains, which scientists
admit we know relatively little about.
We have lived with this bombardment since the dawn of life. It
must have affected our evolution, and we must retain some natural
and deep link with this phenomenon.
As if to prove this point, the Foundation for the Study of Cycles
found that sunspot activity is intimately related to mass reactions
within both the human and animal populations of the world. Research
that stretches right back to 500 BC has shown that every 11.1 years,
major upheavals and unrest has risen.
So what effect is all this radiation really having upon us? What
effects have the radiation and cyclic patterns had upon our
evolution? The complexities of the formulae and ingredients are
immense and too much for any computer model to predict.
And yet our ancient ancestors could predict with alarming
accuracy the precise cyclic effects upon the globe and by doing so
appeared as gods to those around them.
They predicted from the stars the subtle gravitational forces,
and understood the physical and mental effects that the heavens
would have upon us. They created vast amounts of information
regarding astrology and the understanding of the cyclic patterns.
Is there some clue here that shows us the secrets of the
ancients? We are constantly amazed at just how much our ancestors
knew without modern science. Are we yet to be even more astounded?
We may find there is much we can learn from them.

Does God Exist?
Is there any evidence for the existence of God?
A book by Philip Gardiner
After much acclaim and a very successful start to his writing career
with the launch of The Shining Ones in 2002, Philip Gardiner
followed up rapidly with his next and equally controversial book,
Proof - Does God Exist?.
It is the remarkable attempt to try to weigh up all the various
pieces of evidence there is for or against the existence of an
omnipotent being. Searching through history, archaeology, etymology,
philosophy, numerology, science, creation myths and much more, this
author leaves no stone unturned and yet makes it easy for the reader
to understand. But be warned, it is not a book for the scholar, it
is written by a marketing man for the ordinary person to understand,
even though it does ask some searching questions.
There will be no religious authority, no leader of the church
that will be happy with this book, which the author claims takes
away the mystery they try to create. On the other hand, there will
be no scientist or believer in evolution who will come away
unscathed. There is a lot of information in this book which is
seriously lateral to current belief and current ideas - maybe we
will all need to take another look at our ideas of who we are and
where we came from.
However, there will be dissent. No religion on the planet is left
unscarred and many have already attacked this opening up of sacred
and secret teachings.
This is not a biased book. It is not a Christian trying to fool
you into getting converted or a cult attempting to get into the
mainstream. This is an normal, none aligned attempt to find the
truth, and anybody who has read The Shining Ones, will know just how
much effort this author puts into his research.
At the end of the book the author simply hands the decision of
whether God exists over to a jury. A cross section of the UK. They
decide whether God exists and the result is surprising.
The author appeared on BBC Radio Lancs recently, up against a
Professor and a Bishop. He was called dangerous. Why? Because he
said that faith was personal and for each individual. In the end,
the phone-ins backed the author and his straight forward approach.
The Professor and the Bishop were accused of dumming down the public
– the exact same thing Gardiner accuses them of doing.
Proof? Does God Exist?: Is There Any Evidence for the Existence of God?
by Philip Gardiner (Paperback - June 1, 2002)
Book Review of Proof?
by Ernest Scott
I honestly thought this author must have been joking or quite
simply gone mad when he came up with this idea. What on earth gave
him the right to poke his investigative nose into this subject?
There can never be any proof for God or against Him. And yet I
quickly warmed to his method and his intriguing idea of what indeed
amounted to proof. In the past we have had the great minds of the
world give us their wonderful and philosophical insights into the
4th dimensional or 5th elemental existence of a deity. From Plato to
Aquinas we have wandered a road fraught with mental dangers.
Whenever we listen to anybody, we simply listen to bias. Most of the
apologetics were and are highly evangelical in their methods. Most
of the atheists remain disgruntled and violent. The two worlds never
meet. Or that’s what I used to think until I read this book.
The author is and has been somewhat of an expert in the field of
religion and mythology and has appeared on tv and radio assisting in
investigations. He never really lets on what he believes, and yet we
read his words and warm to him as a human being. This is ideal when
reading up on such a subject. We may be reading from the perspective
of believer or unbeliever, but either way we will be opinionated.
Philip, gently takes away our anger and guides us through the
minefield of evidences. Many of these mines I myself did not even
realise existed. What on earth is septenary design? Now I know.
Eagerly I moved forward through this book and with every step I
took I was saved from a blunder by this author. It is so easy to
make rash judgements and believe in something without all the
information. I am glad I read this book and much like when I read
his other work, I had my world changed. It may be his background in
marketing and his investigative methods, but every time I read this
author he amazes me. I implore you to make no decisions, make no
judgements about the world until you have read Proof and the authors
other work, The Shining Ones.
