    Christianity and UFOs – Mutually Exclusive or Perfect Sense?

    Christianity and UFOs – Mutually Exclusive or Perfect Sense?

    With the new report on Unidentified Flying Objects, or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) in modern parlance, a question rarely asked is how the Christian community views the phenomena and whether belief in extra-terrestrials or UFOs is in direct opposition to the basis of Christianity.

    The Rabbit Hole Podcast: Why Education Fails

    The Rabbit Hole Podcast: Why Education Fails

    Is there an educational crisis? Well, the shape of that crisis depends on your nationality. If you happen to be in the United States or the United Kingdom, the answer is a resounding yes. Despite blushing government officials touting better than ever results – all while casually ignoring that the tests have been dumbed down – the fact remains that large swaths of the next generation simply cannot read, write or do math to any reasonable standard.
    So what are we missing? Surely there is some way to achieve a happy medium? Well, in fact, there is. And perhaps not surprisingly, it is a method that has been around for thousands of years and is largely ignored today.

    The Rabbit Hole Podcast: Losing History

    The Rabbit Hole Podcast: Losing History

    Society has become a convenience service. Its sole purpose now appears to be an automaton that delivers to you your every whim and desire. Whether it's "on-demand" streaming services, same-day delivery, or moving away from the innocuous, it brings you peace, safety, and the ability never to feel threatened or face challenges ever again. Is this the end result of thousands of years of culture? Is this what we have shaped the global human effort to achieve? Cut-price TV delivered to a handset you can hold while you wait for a drone to bring you a processed, pre-packaged meal? Safe in the knowledge that any soul who dares think differently to you will be punished by the state. Where did we go wrong?
    Perhaps more importantly, we should be asking whether this was a linear path for human history, or is it an aberration that we should be using our unique intelligence to solve just like any other problem?

    The Rabbit Hole Podcast – The Dystopian Five - Part 2

    The Rabbit Hole Podcast – The Dystopian Five - Part 2

    On the last edition of The Rabbit Hole, we discussed the first three of the top five Dystopian novels, and more importantly, how for a book to be part of the classic genre, it needs to be "possible." And perhaps more so, it needs to be immediate. As in, we can see the elements are unfolding around us and the precursors to the tyranny evident in our own times.

    The Dystopian Five - Part 1

    The Dystopian Five - Part 1

    In literature, one of the most argued over genres is that of dystopian fiction. While other book styles have produced their own share of adjectival language (think Dickensian or Homeric), there are few more instantly understandable than those of the anti-utopian novelists, for example, “Orwellian” or “ultra-violent.” How is it that these types of novel became so entwined with our culture that they become accessible language that even non-readers are comfortable using?

    The Rabbit Hole Podcast – Decoding the Hidden Signs

    The Rabbit Hole Podcast – Decoding the Hidden Signs

    There is a secret language that pervades our thought process; it directs us, it controls us, and although it is hidden, it is hidden in plain sight and decodable by those who know what and where to look. I'm not building a prelude to a lecture on the Illuminati, nor a grand conspiracy theory that secret messages are being passed in front of our eyes. But there is a code of symbology that exists in every country around the world, whose sole principle being persuasive control.

Very informative and greatly entertaining

This podcast is excellent. The episodes are short (about 10 mins), intelligent, and combine three of my favorite topics: history, literature, and politics. My favorite episode so far is episode #10, "One-step Thinking and Dangerous Politics." Truly, there are some remarkable and little-known stories in this podcast that are simply astounding. It is a great format, and the show is really entertaining. I highly recommend giving it a listen.
