Fall 2012 Spooky Action Radio (audio archive)

Each week we explore and discuss sightings from around the world and talk about breaking news in science and other related fields.  Our mission is to look at the logical and rational science explanations of the UFO phenomenon.   

We will answer your e-mail questions on the air...live!

We are looking forward to our second year of radio shows!  New and exciting guests, favorite guests from previous episodes will return for a command performance and we are branching o into ESP and the Paranormal.

You may download episodes below in .mp3 format, but join us Friday nights for a LIVE on air discussion!

Hosts:  Kyle Finley, John Powers
Guests:  Steve Snodgrass
Runtime: 3:28:0758:42
Topics Discussed: Rupert Sheldrake's morphic resonance.  Gerbil experiment in the design phase - to test for electromagnetic signals from a biological life form upon death, held and measured in a double faraday cage.  This is a joke by the way - only a thought experiment.  Speed of thought and caterpillar memory from one larva to the next.  Changes in physical constants like the speed of light, gravitational constant and Planck's constant.  Velocity of light assumed to be 21 miles per second from 1923-1945.  Planck's constant is increasing slightly from 1951-1983.  Assumption that reality is fixed colors experimental data via group think.  Gravity and magnetism and the 10 dogmata of materialistic science.  Steve suggests holding just enough assumptions to get around in the world but no more, especially in regard to life's big questions.  Circumstantial evidence for the UFO/ET hypothesis; Steve goes after the UNO Secular Student Alliance.  Healthy skepticism.  Government conspiracy and Admiral Lord Hill Norton - either way the idea UFOs are not a national security threat is untenable if 1) they actually disrupted a military base, or 2) if it wasn't UFOs and the base was still disrupted by claims of UFOs.  Minot missile scare.  Preview of the upcoming end of the world show on 12-21-2012.  Music choices and rolling time zones.  Jacky Kozan elected French national president of MUFON.  Premiere of Steve's new powerpoint presentation:  The UFO/ET Hypothesis:  Pseudoscience or Plausible?

Nature of conscious experience, mechanism of storage, don't need human beings.  Bell's theorem.  Extended argument over directionality in evolution.  Near death experiences, EVPs, C-SETI and meditative states of awareness.  Whew!
