Referring to player protests about police brutality. I use that expression all the time. You can't have the inmates running the asylum. You can't have the inmates running the prison. I never thought of that as a slur. Or an attack. Certainly not racist. It's an expression that we've used for everybody uses.

Mathematics and Logic Are Founded on Faith
"Angels it folks I'm talking to doctor Michael gillan. The new book is believing is seeing a physicist, that's Michael. Explains how science shattered his atheism and revealed the necessity of faith. Michael it's brave of you in many ways to be talking about faith and science the way you do because so many people in the world of science are either openly and illogically hostile to discussions of faith or they are like many people simply afraid to open their mouths. And so they stay quiet and they contribute to the problem by being quiet. So thank you for all the books you've written and for what you do and say, and thanks for the new book believing is seeing. You mentioned mathematics in the book. Obviously, math is not a science, but they bear on one another. What do you say about math in the book? Math is the queen of the sciences and it is widely perceived to be solidly founded on logic and has nothing whatsoever to do with faith. So if of all the sciences, physics, biology, astronomy, mathematics is generally perceived, and it's a misperception, but it's generally perceived as being 100% faith free. And in this chapter that I call having faith in mathematics, I explained that even mathematics and even logic is founded on
Author Michael Guillen: We're Able to Perceive Things Not Visible to the Eye
"Folks I'm talking to Michael gillan, who's a scientist, who's written a book called believing is seeing a physicist explains how science shattered his atheism and revealed the necessity of faith. So you were just saying Michael gill really extraordinary experiment. They separate the connection between someone's left hemisphere and right hemisphere. And then they ask them, what do you see, cover up one eye? What do you see? Whatever. So the first time they cover up the right eye, and I'm sorry. The first time we cover up the left, which means you had it right. The first time they showed the picture of a frying pan to Joe, the split brain patient, they showed it to his right eye, which means that was being the image was being processed by the left hemisphere. And he had no problem identifying and naming it. He's a friend. Okay. Okay. Then sometime later, you know, they were jumping jumbling all these pictures. They showed that same frying pan image to his left eye, which means the image was being processed by the right hemisphere. And guess what? He said, well, I don't see anything. And the said, what do you mean? You don't see anything? No. And then they said, then they said to him, okay, close your eyes and draw the first thing that comes to your mind. So the guy closes his two eyes and draws, guess what? A frying pan. So what that indicates to us is that we're able to perceive things that are not visible. We're able to perceive things that are invisible to the eye. And that is where I start exploring the nature of faith because if you think about it, faith is all about seeing or perceiving truths that we can not see or prove in any or even imagine.
'Believing Is Seeing' Author Michael Guillen on How Science Led Him to God
"Science. It's nothing less than astonishing. When you realize that the idea, most of us have heard in our lifetimes that faith and science are at odds, is not even slightly true. It is in fact the opposite. It's hard for us to shift our paradigms. But we need to, as I said, I write about it a lot in my new book. But a friend Michael gillan, we've had him on before, has a new book out on the very same subject called believing is seeing. He's a real scientist. Michael gill and welcome. Hey, Eric, it's so good to see you again, my brother. Looking forward to our conversation. It's great. It's great to see you and to talk to you. I love talking about all this stuff, especially with somebody who knows about it the way you do. You really came to faith later in life. You had been hostile to faith. And now you're writing books, explaining to people that faith and science are friends and that this is a lie that they're at odds. In the book you talk about how the latest discoveries in neuroscience physics astronomy, mathematics. Point to faith in many ways. Talk about that because I mean, what do you mean when you say neuroscience? I'm not even sure, do I know what neuroscience is? Signs of the brain. Yeah, yeah. It's a study of the brain and, you know, I remember when I was at ABC News, I did a story on the Harvard brain bank, which is the largest repository of human brains. I think in the world, certainly in the nation. So I went there. It's Ian Massachusetts, not too far from Harvard. I was also teaching at Harvard at the time, so it was convenient for me. And I remember being able to hold, they allowed me to hold a human brain in my hands. And even to this day, Eric, it was just a really weird feeling to think, you know, this is the essence of what we call humanity, if you will. Never mind discussions about soul and the spirit. I mean, this is where our personalities. This is where we reside in this two, three pound brain. And the human brain is made up of two hemispheres, the right and the left. And a lot of studies have been done on that. And I talk in the book about I think it was in the 70s when scientists physicians started treating patients with epilepsy by severing the corpus callosum, which is the cable like it's a very thick cable of nerve fibers that connect the two hemispheres. And what they found was that when they, when they cut the two hemispheres, when they separated the two hemispheres like that, the epileptic seizures stopped. Not entirely but to a great degree. But there were some interesting side effects. And that's what I deal with in the book because ultimately I connect that research to my exploration of faith. It's a little bit complicated and we couldn't do it justice here, but I will say this much that when you when you look at these what we call split brain patients, these are patients whose hemispheres have been separated. They there's a lot of interesting side effects. For example, why quote one woman who goes grocery shopping, she's a split brain patient. And she finds that the two hands when she's reaching for groceries or putting groceries in the basket, they fight one another. And what I explain in the book is that what we've discovered from split brain patients is that our two hemispheres are basically at war with one

Why Does Gen Z Believe Leftist Garbage?
"Welcome back to one on one with me, Sebastian, and amala E. So, you are at the forefront. You are probably the newest national personality for this amazing institution that is pragya university. Will you tell us a little bit about first because you're in the trenches? Will you tell us why? Generates, what are you Generation Z, what are you? Yeah, I am. Okay. So why does Gen Z? Believe all this garbage. Break it down for us. Is it just the schools or tell us how they believed what you believed? I think it's a multitude of things. I think schooling is really important. I think that's a big part of it now, although it wasn't such a big part of it when I was younger, but the rise of CRT, critical race theory and DEI, diversity equity and inclusion is particularly putting young people at risk to believe this sort of ideology. But I think more so than that. It's social media and mainstream media. What they do is they pull these emotional stories. I'll talk about it in my case, things like tamir rice, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, the police brutality narrative. I was inundated with that narrative by mainstream media and by social media. And of course, you hear these harrowing stories of abuse. And so you'll like a post talking about how Michael Brown was shot and killed for being black and suddenly that's all you see on your social media feeds. And the big tech overlords are cognizant of that. They're pushing this sort of ideology to young people and everybody on their platforms. So I was getting it from social media. I was getting it from mainstream media. And then I had the brilliant combination of also getting it from my mother at home. And it didn't matter how successful I was as a young black female. I went through school. I was valedictorian of my high school. I worked a job after school. I started my own club at school. I got all these scholarships. I was inquired by Yale to go to Yale. And yet you would have asked me and I would have told you, I'm a press because I'm a black woman in America. And it's because these emotional stories that do not speak to a larger truth or a larger systemic pattern are so pervasive and they're able to cut through actual logic and reason when it comes to young
Jen Psaki Flubs Question Over China Missile Development
"That. Now I want to go to a Jen Psaki whopper yesterday. And were you in the press room yesterday? Yes. Okay. Do you know what I'm going to get? I don't know. Okay. It is cut number 17. You comment on reports that China has saved a nuclear capable hypersonic missile over this summer to the surprise of your professional as accurate and raised concerns about Chinese people's capability. I know general secretary Austin, I should say, was asked this question this morning and addressed it. But I'm not going to comment on the specific report. I can say echo what he said, which is generally speaking, we've made clear our concerns about the military capabilities that the PRC continues to pursue. And we have been consistent in our approach with China. We welcome stiff competition, but we don't do not want that competition to veer into conflict. And that is certainly what we convey privately as well. We welcome stiff competition, caught the eye of every person who follows nuclear weapons and especially hypersonics, Michael scheer. Did that sound like a clunker off of your ear when you heard it? Yeah, it did. I mean, you know. Welcoming stiff competition is what you normally think of in terms of perhaps development of consumer technology or something that doesn't have national security implications. It's hard to imagine the administration truly welcoming stiff competition when it comes to development of nuclear weapons or advanced advanced deployment systems of nuclear warheads. I mean, so yes that seemed to me to be at odd way of phrasing that

Filmmaker Ami Horowitz on the Inspiration for His Series
"Can we are back with army Horowitz, see the whole video of him in Berkeley with American students giving a man they think is funding the Taliban money for the next 9 11 army. We don't rehearse any of this. I don't tell you what I'm going to ask you. This is the question. I don't think I've ever asked you. And I think it's the most important one. Nobody is doing what you're doing. I mean, you know, Jesse ward is what his world is fun. It's amusing, but your videos are shocking. Why are you doing what you're doing? What's the genesis of it or we share that story? Yeah, sure. You know, so my background was as an investment banker. That's what I did for most of my career. And one day the Saturday night and I was watching the Michael Moore film going for Columbine. And I started drifting off thinking about the United Nations and how horrific they are and damaging they are. And why isn't anybody up in arms about it? And I looked over at the screen at the Michael Moore documentary. I thought, what did engaging interesting. Way to convey an idea, this idea of a smart, dark documentary. Now, he may be totally wrong, he's a big fat pig. But hey, you know what? Still, it's a really interesting way of conveying a perspective. So I thought, you know what? I'm going to do that. I literally quit my job. I was sorry, I quit my job on Monday. Start raising money, made a movie called you and me, which was thank God successful enough where a kind of open live doors for me. I decided I didn't want to do any more. I didn't want to spend another 7 years on one topic and spend millions of dollars on it. So I said, you know, this social media was really taken off that point. And you can kind of create your own platform. And that's what I did. I just started doing these one off videos. And they just kind of became super successful and they kind of blew up to the point where now we're across all platforms are probably four and a half million views per video. As soon as the show, right? Then you're going to have your own show called triggered. Yeah, yeah. We are in the process of that as well. Really excited about them. I'm sure. I'm sure this will be one of the first places I'll come to you talk about it once we're

What We Can Learn About Christian Citizenship With John Zmirak
"There are many Americans that are looking to us. I talked to them on planes. I know that they are, they're worried about the times in which we live. And I know that God has allowed us the privilege of encouraging them and speaking the truth. You well, people listening to the program know that an hour or one I talked to Larry about the column, the article that he wrote in the spectator about this issue, he uses David French. It's not simply the single out David French, but it's an issue about how some Christians think and how it's not only faulty, but it's become very, very damaging. It's very harmful. And we need to correct it. And by God's grace, folks like David French and others will see this error by God's grace, I hope. But you yourself have written an article dealing with Larry's article and with this issue. So you write at stream stream dot org, the stream. Let's talk about that first and then we'll do something really fun, but we don't want to give it away. Go ahead. All right, I'm talking not just about David French, but some of the other writers who resemble whose arguments resemble his names like Russell Moore, rod prayer and stetzer Michael gerson people who were spectacularly and publicly anti Trump. At the time of a very close election. And when it was coming up to a very close election, where the balance was between electing this, the secret committee formally known as Joe Biden. This monstrosity that's happening around us that Joe Biden is the sock puppet for. Or voting for an imperfect candidate who made mean tweets, but tried to save babies.

Why McConnell Helped Schumer Increase Debt Limit
"Jake. It's here. i was about to slander. You betcha they wrote punchbowl news last night and took the day off. 'cause the feds rob welcome back by now no i. My phone was on silence. I apologize not problem. Date chairman of punchbowl. Get your punchbowl news at punchbowl news dot com check last hour. I played chuck schumer speech. You wrote your assessment of the binding legislative agenda. Did you take into account the impact of the shimmer speech which brosseau told maria barham yesterday has deeply soured the republican caucus. I mean to the point. They don't want to talk to the guy. yeah. I actually don't. They didn't talk much to anyway. I don't find that big. I don't find it to be this positive. I've been through a lot of michael's where speeches what we're supposed to ruin relationships. The fact is the reality is. There's not much cooperation that we anticipate anyway. I think the conventional wisdom is wrong on the democratic side. I think that because mcconnell blinked and this lasts debt limit fight he makes it less likely appoint again And i think that i just i. I don't think the speeches what did it. I mean it's not like we were in a golden era for cooperation. What did you make joe mansion face in his hands and then leaving. We reported at the time that he He used next live instead. It was. I read batting. Yeah i can't remember exactly what it was I think listen. I think i am the cynic here is you know hugh i think. Being against schumer is beneficial for him. But i do think. Joe manchin owns chuck schumer in a way In the sense that he can't get anything done. Schumer can't without joe mansion so You know what mansion said In in many respects was right that if you want to have more progressive agenda you don't have to worry about joe manchin so like progressives to the senate you know and i think that's the reality of it now. Can i explain to you. My theory of what happened last week. I think mitch mcconnell one. Even though people think he lost. I think he intended people think he lost so that he could win. In december he could not allow the debt crisis right now so he waited and waited and waited extended it till december and he will allow it in december. Couldn't allow it now. It might have the reconciliation going to a higher number now. The democrats have to work out their reconciliation and if they do they're going to have passed trillions of dollars in spending and they're gonna have to borrow for it to reconciliation to get your take ship sherman. I don't think that yeah i mean. Listen i i think that he. I don't think that he won or lost. I think this was kind of a stupid fight with an. It's now it was a stupid deal. That really screws over everyone involved. I mean i agree with you. He couldn't have a he could not afford to have a default And he did. In the only the i guess i would say. He won. Because schumer's main argument against reconciliation and lifting with reconciliation was that he didn't have time that was schumer's made argument yao He can't make that argument. So i i and i hear that I do hear that. There's a lot of anger in the republican conference. Though i mean. We can't underestimate that On what mcconnell. There's no movement to get rid of them that silliness that is coming from whatever wherever trump. We're getting that from. Oh you mean getting rid of mcconnell not not a not a chance

I know and you know it's interesting because i i'm talking about because i went ended the flash. The and i almost have more of an appreciate well. I do have more of an appreciation of because it's become such a call -tural thing and then let's be honest. You have to add the corporate element to it. They just just the massive monetary part of all that not all the marbles and all the stuff you rant it's a franchise dizin. Yeah there's it's like exxon mobil deciding where to put an oil rig.

Don't don't not take it serious. I of all. I don't know how to not take things too seriously. Sometimes but i look at it. Oddly differently now and and i. It's kind of hard to explain it. So when i went to do it. I really in some ways enjoyed it more because i kind of had nother perspective on it. Once you go to work you just show up. And what's the seen. How what do you think. When want to do here bob lush. Should i come in like that. Whatever you do all that. But i didn't expect that really not i expected to go. Yeah whatever.

Worked out well Good yeah i couldn't. I'd had no access to any of that in the nineties or even the early two thousands. I just couldn't access it but could be an irish thing too.

Parties or smoking behind. The bike sheds or stuff that most teenagers do one hundred percent. I think swimming is dedicated to nine times a week.

Say smoking drinking drugs. All of that sort of stuff you wouldn't have been getting up to the disco back in the day that it was just so some in which many people find it hard to understand because anyone that doesn't do doesn't do a sport i think.

Most countries not putting in green conditions on those bailouts course not going back to compensation. That's why I'm just thinking eventually it'll go back to business as usual. So you've talked about carbon offsets how big a fan are you know there's some controversy about whether they're really useful or not I always say that probably nothing. On I think the the transition obviously, you want people to travel fast and Saifi less but I think as of having people being conscious about the impact. I think it's valuable. I think that you can have some schemes which are very good and can help reduce emissions. So hosted the causing of the scheme is important, but they should be seen as pundit of transition the necessarily end in itself. But I think they should be part of the transition. The other things we're talking about today, there's a bundle of things out there that we should be using and they billeted application will change complacent place in situate- situation. But I think they have to be part of the equation at least for the next twenty thirty years because it gets back to the issue of. How do you believe your energy?

"Expectations for me where to. Be a borderline NHL player to try to maintain his spot on the NHL Roster. I think due to contract situations and the rest of the roster and the you know phase the kings or as a group as a as. he you know would have to stay around but I expected him to be certainly in the bottom sexual. If Not Fourth Line Center I would hope that the kings team was starting to establish their their new system under Tom. McClellan. Then you know maybe he could become a fixture there as far as. You. Know again, fourth line. that was it didn't expect any much more. Look at you. Know we we always you always go back and look at numbers. From previous. Leagues before you get to the NHL. With Michael I. Think the numbers stand out as far as offensive production. And then it just always leads me to and I. Hope I'm not harshly critical here. This is just what I see. Some players are what we call twitter's meaning there. At the American. Hockey League level they can be an impact player and you would hope that when they make it to the NHL they can. They can carry somewhat the same amount of production. On from Michael Right now, he has not been able to do that. So he's he's in between. He he's. You know highly productive H. L. But can't even now. I think some of the. The number. I. That coaches put. A lot of weight into. have come to the forefront Michael and. He has established trust. Factor with the coaching stuff. The. Know what you're. GonNa get type of thing. and. I think that's the reason he's able to stay around. Not. The flashy. You know impact type of player.

Well I'm going to have to put a stop time on this at some point because you and I could go on and on, and we probably could laugh about a million horrible stories, and also some of the most amazing things we've seen. Happen out there, but let me tell you a little bit about Michael Burner, as if maybe you don't know but he is a top CMO. Influence I talked to people all the time on this show when they don't know what to do, go to the influencers. Look at what they're doing and the reality that. That I'm preaching all the time. Is that influencers? Many times are willing to answer a question. If you just simply ask them, and this is the case with Michael I. See it all the time on your twitter feed, someone acid, genuine question you just simply answer them, and so the accessibility of influencers is really out there for the taking, but he is a fantastic speaker, and he is the CEO of marketing insider group. He has worked with so many crazy brands I mean sap Nielsen, but then also all kinds of interesting high growth, start ups, but he has such powerful leadership and marketing skills. To boot, this is my favorite thing about Michael. Your book mean people suck is just. It's a banner cry. It's so it's so awesome, and you've written several, but I'd love to make sure that people don't leave this podcast without hearing about that, so Michael Welcome to the show, and this is going to be so much fun.

"Michael show go ahead my man Hey Michael I am a little bit there is doctor guy yeah we we talk all the time about these are the homeless situation in the liberal cities and and once I got out you know just out of hand San Francisco and closer to home Austin Texas but even here I'm I'm out here in Tomball and and just this morning I saw last night a couple of people in a shopping cart full of crap and I and I saw this morning leaving my neighborhood and are sleeping next to the road and and I'm I'm I'm often thought you know if I were if I were if I had the Barbara king for a day what would I do about this and I really I come up blank and so I you know you served on city council and ran for mayor and if you had if you were king for a day long and what we do to solve this problem so it's interesting you ask that rag and the way you asked it when I was in public life I undertook I used to laugh because I had binders full of data from budget processes and from research on every department in the city and I tried to look at every major problem that faces a municipality water wastewater road building and maintenance drainage big issue in this community crime firefighting in includes provision public health and I will tell you I think that there are reasonable answers to every one of those now there's room for disagreement but there are reasonable answers that that make stretchers stretch your resources but you can find a way to fix them homelessness was the one challenge I found to be intractable and it was because everything you think you know you have to throw out the window for instance many people who are homeless they don't want to be homeless per se but they don't want to be in a shelter and they can't manage their own dwelling their own homestead so when you start thinking about that most of them are suffering from severe psychiatric problems the likes of which you can't imagine now a lot of people like to say well it's just drugs drugs exacerbate the problem they trigger the problem some case they immediately right the pain for a moment but drugs are not the reason drugs are a part of the issue but you can take away their drugs and they're not going to be happy and they're also not going to be willing to go live under shelter so when you realize that did you can't fix people you can only attempt to treat people and in some cases they don't want it's a really tough it's a very very tough question I don't have the time on the show today to to share all my thoughts and some of them would be controversy but I can tell you it's the toughest public policy issue I have ever researched and tried to fix in Seattle there is a group antifa and black lives matter have kind of worked together to create this group and I've taken over a part of the downtown and so they've taken over part of the downtown they have armed members to defend themselves they have a warlord who's head of it all they brought in fencing and plywood and the first thing they did imagine this the open borders crowd they built a wall around themselves it's true you know South Park is like it you know I'm not sure if life imitates South Park or South Park imitates life but they had an episode where exactly this happened we don't G. corporations we don't need money just to become a country where we just help each other yeah well one that makes it one guy looked up other people's safety like a bag or a cop no no can't you imagine a place where people live together like provide services for each other in exchange for their services yeah you can't just haven't been to college yet but just you wait this thing is about to give you yeah we just go to college and it's more smartest people I've ever met didn't go to college funny how that works this college make people smarter no it doesn't this college make them better able to succeed in the world only if we set up a system where it requires a college degree to get started on a career path who made that rule wine the people who went to college you see once people climb the ladder to success they pull up the ladder for everyone else and they say the only way you can be successful is if you do exactly what I did yeah that's the ticket you see I went to college in a way I prevent other people from coming into my industry and jumping over leapfrog ahead of me because they're more talented is all require in order to get into this industry you have to have a college degree and that's what the corporations did they said you got to have a college degree to do this this or this but why did college teach people something so special no they knew they couldn't discriminate on the basis of whatever they want discriminated against idiots uber's criminals you name it so they thought well will discriminate based on college and who doesn't have a college degree what about the guy that comes back from serving in the marines had been in combat what the guy who's led marines in combat would you rather have that guy is somebody who went to toga party for four years I mean you'd.

"michael i" Discussed on Marketing Above All
"List and know that if you've been investing two percent for example it's going to be very challenging for you to all sudden jump to eight percent or ten percent so I'm just encouraging you to bump up whatever you've been doing by a percent or two and then to continue to watch the effects but in this example for simple math purposes I will say that you're investing ten percent of your gross sales and marketing which is a great number so you'd be investing ten thousand dollars a month or thirty thousand dollars for the quarter so after the quarter finished you would basically look back and say all right so we were forecasting to do three hundred thousand dollars in sales were. Did we wind up if you wound up on the short end of the stick? And let's say you only did two hundred thousand dollars. You're then going to adjust your marketing budget. Down based on the performance on the flip side if you ended up doing better than you had forecasted and let's say you ended up doing half a million dollars instead of three hundred thousand. Then your marketing budget would go from thirty thousand dollars. A quarter all the way up to fifty thousand dollars for the next quarter so these budgets need to be a moving target so that you you don't back yourself into a very difficult corner now. There's other variables at play for example. If you've got season -ality you're going to need to continue to play with those numbers and if you have a gigantic month for example so there's ways to kind of play with that but the whole goal as you start to establish a routine you start to have it where your marketing compounds to your continuing to execute month after month after month and you're getting your brand out there and you're trying new tactics and you're continuing to execute tactics that are working on a regular basis and what you can do. Is You WANNA start to nail down that secret or that magical number and I will tell you that this magical number takes a little bit of work but once you get to that number it can be game over and a good way. So you're aiming to figure out how much is it costing you to a choir? A new customer so five investing thirty thousand dollars a quarter going back to that example. Ten thousand dollars a month. I want to be able to quickly see how many leads and I'm using leads in a general term whether you're B to B B to c e Commerce driven retail and. It doesn't matter so how many people are raising their hands that they're interested in working with you. That's metric number one metric number two then is your conversion percentage how many of those end up converting into a customer. So if you invest ten thousand dollars simple math. Let's say you end up getting ten new customers. See your cost per sale. Your cost to acquire. New Customer was a thousand dollars now depending on your business. That could be horrible number or an amazing number and what you're looking to do is continue to then improve those numbers. You're looking to lower your cost per lead. You're looking to improve your conversions which then drives down your cost per sale and if that thousand number is a great number what you WanNa start to do then is really remove the limits so while a percentage is great. If you say Michael I just WanNa grow. Well what happens if you're to invest twenty thousand dollars for that particular month? Would you end up getting twenty new customers? Can you still maintain that thousand dollar number and what you're aiming to start to figure out is kind of the sweet spot of hominy new customers. Can you acquire so the name of the game is whomever is willing to invest the most to acquire a new customer wins that number? Is the secret sauce number. What can you afford to invest to acquire that new customer in where a lot of businesses have narrow minded thinking is they forget about another key metric that metric is lifetime value of a customer? So you might only get. Let's say it does cost you that thousand dollars and you may say well. Jeez Michael I invested at thousand but the the initial sale was only two hundred dollars. So I'm out eight hundred well. How many times are they going to purchase and repurchase how many people are they going to potentially refer to you and your business? The lifetime value of that customer could be ten thousand dollars so a dentist. Just managing your cash flow your numbers to see again. How much can you afford to invest to acquire those customers to continue to grab all of that lifetime value revenue in the near future? So if you were to say Michael. Am I investing enough? The answer is usually no and the trends that I'm seeing now is that there are.

that I'm not within six feet of anybody else other than my wife I'm not aware in ninety five mask because I have access to them I'm aware again ninety five mass to go to the grocery store not because I'm scared of other people because I'm trying to protect other people in case I happen to be a symptomatic and I'm going to continue to do the things I do in the studio for example so no I'm not nonchalant about it I understand this virus is dangerous just as the flu is dangerous but I also understand that the vulnerable population or people or it is always an aberration so there are people who are in their forties then there have been a couple of children who have died but when you look at the death rate out of six point six billion people we're no where near even World War two we're no where near two years ago in terms of the influenza virus and we have vaccines for that so when I hear that we have to wait we have a vaccine vaccines do not prevent the spread of diseases and so I'm you may think I'm nonchalant about it but you know what I care about I care about this economy and I care about this country and if we don't open this country if we don't do it sooner rather than later we're not going to help the country and in fact we're going to be subjected to all sorts of national security risk that we can't even imagine right now Justin you have the ticket you have the four well you're very wherever I go I mean we can't be nonchalant we can't open up right away we have over a we can't just do what we can open right away we just have to be make certain that we put in there we do things that we that we engage in proper hygiene that we do social distancing there is no there is absolutely no reason not to open tomorrow but how many twenty two year old boulder kids are going to go to the bar just some kids house and have a fifty person under personal property with a blank look up you get my point here right know what I mean well you know what happened and I just Justin is it my responsibility or your responsibility or is it the government's responsibility to keep twenty twenty two year old from boulder from gathering together if they're that damn stupid yeah what about a fortune right it's our consequence that's what sucks about this I agree well it's not much look it's not it's not anymore my consequence if somebody is stupid engages him quite frankly unsafe sex it's not my responsibility if somebody if we open up up the country tomorrow if they go out and they and they sneeze on somebody else's face than that of the person for not wearing a mask it's not my responsibility I'm responsible for my actions Justin you're responsible for your actions and you know what there's no amount of government they can keep us safe so let's call it quits I'll give you fifty fifty on that I play Michael I've been waitin N. ninety five mask in public program once they looked at me like I was crazy till last week so I'll give you a half on that all right all right I'll take whatever you're never going with what that's it that was it we'll give you more argument the mac Justin you could have done so much better over the given use so much more latitude yes I will just open almost open tomorrow because I think that other stupid people in this country let me look around yes these people people but you know what it is not the government's responsibility to keep us safe from diseases if they would sometimes you have to be absurd to point out the absurdity if it's the government's responsibility to prevent disease what they would they would out wall anal sex unprotected anal sex all right and I'm not advocating that up if somebody wants to engage in a have that not my responsibility they would also outlaw cheeseburgers and French fries it is not the government's responsibility to keep us healthy it is our responsibility so we've been told we've been told what the danger is of this virus and quite frankly we have different sets of facts about help the violence the the biology of this virus we have different sets of facts about the or not we have different facts about how it's transmitted or not transmitted so you know what I would rather save this nation's economy then sit back here and let a bunch of bureaucrats continue to cost Americans their jobs their life savings we were reaching unemployment levels of the depression and I know that maybe Justin I'm not picking on you Justin but maybe you haven't studied the depression and what to do we barely survived that as a nation if I can what saved us from the depression World War two I don't want to go through another World War I don't wanna go through another depression but that's the that's the direction we're headed if we keep this nation shut now and I'm I'm just over it I'm over it so I'm gonna take personal responsibility open up the freaking country and tomorrow if the country's open if I go out on those studies six feet away from y'all who's that I don't trust I don't want people Mike personal space anyway so I'm all for I've been I've been for social distancing flint long before it was cool and I'm not aware and in ninety five mask I will give a rat's **** what people think about it and I'm also gonna go to a restaurant I will support small businesses I'm gonna do everything I can to spend every little nickel that I can afford to spend to try to save this economy I want everybody else to do that too I'm tired of this living in fear we're living in fear we've got to stop it the diverge the other argument you could make Justin jobs kind of hoping you would all the set the strongman of myself and that is we can't open up yet because we might have another spike in deaths it all over mitigation efforts would have been for naught no because we still are creating surge capacity in the health care system and quite frankly we have excess capacity in the health care system right now it may be on even in certain parts of the country but when you're laying off doctors when you're laying off nurses you cannot convince me that there is a shortage of health care capacity in this country my god in this state we're building capacity of the extreme I think in excess of three thousand beds M. shoes just dismissed three hundred plus patients from their hospital we'll need to quit being afraid and the other thing we quit doing is depending on the government to protect us the government cannot protect us anymore than they can protect us from the common cold influenza measles what you know I just give up I give up because I think they're way too many Americans just maybe what maybe people want to live in fear.

"Have been reporting the facts and you know I really appreciate that and I think our audience will continue to do that Mike yes thank you yes so Michael I did have a question or comment for you tonight on the first of All I Want to say it takes more courage to come on the show it is skeptic than it does as a true believer I think because of the audience and I I have a lot of respect for you for doing that all my my question for you tonight is about the afterlife I've heard you say in the past that you don't believe necessarily in the afterlife he had one of my favorite people on the subject Stephen Hawking had the opinion that there is no after life that you basically just die and that's all there is and I was wanting to get your opinion on that thank you yeah I I think I swear we go to afterwards that is the place we were before we were born which is to say nonexistence it is by the way what Jews originally believed and you know before the Christian era there was there was next to no belief in an afterlife you know it's sort of a relatively modern invention the last couple thousand years and you know because we don't know the first person I thought of it but but it of course I don't know nobody knows for sure and but but my point is this my previous book heavens on earth is that if it weathers an afterlife or not doesn't really matter because we don't live then and there we live here and now so this is one where it matters my analogy is is that what I call al these error this is it one of my Scientific American column cycled out easier Alvy is at woody Allen's character in Annie hall where he has a flashback to his childhood refused to do his homework as mother takes the psychiatrist you know can I help you I want to do your homework is a universe is expanding what what so what the universe is expanding one day it's going all blow up so none of this really matters it is mother up racism and says what the universe got to do that we live in Brooklyn Brooklyn is not expanding and and that's the problem is is that it's sort of a kind of a category error is flow through college you know you're thinking at one time scale or level and then but but the the real issue is at a different time scale or level so what we do here and now very much matters whether whether there is a you know a billion years from now it will all be settled whatever is kind of irrelevant and and and I would say the same thing with god whether there's a god or not that doesn't really matter because it's how we treat each other here now that matters and and my fellow Santee and beans who I interact with they matter and they care how I interact with them what whether there's a god or not so you know I I try to think of it as you know that that the here and now is what counts Aaron truck driving in Indiana hello Eric George how are you hi could all right is there to my control guy has everybody doing their bodies okay awesome I don't know if it's been brought up George but back in two thousand nine when Jesse Ventura had his conspiracy theory show he did a episode on the FEMA camps and yet Mr Alex Jones on there with them they're showing all kinds of interesting things in the opening credits they actually said that they were trying gonna initiate martial law and they're gonna kick it all off with the pandemic epidemic yep and I remember I remember that I didn't know if you've had that Mr Jones or Mr venture on your show to talk about that I have not at this point that would be good George but that was exactly what the program was all about it is very weird Michael that the some of these things do happen dean Koontz and his nineteen eighty one book eyes of darkness wrote about a pandemic in he called it the Wuhan four hundred is that right true story we got a hold of dean he's been on our program several times and he didn't want to come on to talk about that specifically but he kind of laughed it off like if you know he wasn't intuitive or anything like that but the weird stuff going on out there Michael well the epidemiologists have been warning us about this for some time that you know just a little mutations can happen in which the organisms you know changes are just the way that we cannot just slough it off as we normally do and this appears to be that I mean Bill Gates I was that is Ted talk in twenty fourteen I think it was he talked about this yeah and we help yeah yeah yeah life is going so well come on what are the chances of this well you know maybe he's right because he's kind of on the front lines of that by the way there's a conspiracy theory about him and his vaccines that's why I had read that he's pumping in a billion dollars for vaccine research now I don't know if that's true or not what do you what do you hear yeah and I I was a dancer I thought I thought you know your muscles and something about the ventilators yet any gates doesn't need any more money what do you know why would you care about you know Geno he sees doing it for humanity yet when he wants a vaccine yeah well that could be good okay okay I'll be sixty he's interesting tech will stay with us Michael we're gonna come back for a final phone calls with you in just a moment Dr Michael Shermer with us his book is called giving the devil his due and again his websites are linked up it coast to coast AM dot com including skeptic

"Coast doctor Michael solid with us of course in order to get your calls as we talk about his work U. S. navy's secret space program Michael I understand to you will have a program as we do on guide dot com and that's exciting work tell me the angle you're going to approach well I I do all right now I'm gonna be going out there in a and another couple of weeks to do some interviews I'm not sure exactly how that is going to play out in terms of where it can it is but certainly excited about sharing the the latest information I've gotten on the secret space programs that that really validate some money William Tompkins testimony but also Corey good testimony of a meat I think that's a very important that we find the documents that that really showed that these people are not just telling fantastic stories that they actually are revealing important parts of the history that have kept being kept from us for for decades and so you know that they really are respectively heroes full for coming forward and and revealing this information and and enabling researchers such as myself the kind of start digging around through the information act them and looking at other historic documents to see world you know hell has ruled the stack up with what is talking about it's no less exciting then of course you can see your work and guide dot com as you can see our ours too and good for you Michael the that's there's nothing like passing on great information to people who really want to you know what well that's right I mean as you know with with the with the show has because the minute there's a vast audience out there that really wants to know the truth on these topics and they have an open mind and and and that's the key thing is to have an open mind so that we can kind of like go through all of the stories and and see what you know which school is affected by the testimony of a body the documentation and the focal events and that way we get closer and closer to the truth absolutely now back to your work with the U. S. navy secret space program in the information that you got helped a lot by William Tompkins was it difficult to get the information well for me it challenges at the very beginning because William Thompson and he actually didn't correctly spell the name of the key person who was running the program out of Naval Air Station San Diego he referred to it and and admiral Rychel both but he he misspoke so the the Bob wouldn't myself and others were trying to find out you know who you know he's gifted such a person exists and so we had a lot of trouble finding it but once we did get the correct spelling if they if there was a mysteriously I think there were people in the navy probably wanting to help us along in March of twenty sixteen this is four months pumpkin varieties book suddenly a kind of bio page showed up on the naval aviators website called time golden eagles and it was a a kind of one page bios of at movie called boda so based on that by we were able to approach the freemen of the information it will be putting out able to put in a request for freedom of information act and we were able to get a documentation as mobile top fifteen hundred pages of documentation and and and what you if you have on the website there are some of the documents that I was able to get through the freezing information act you were lucky Michael's getting what you got the main thing I mean really because this was before the key person that set up the navy secret space program and bill pumpkins spoke about inexpensively but yet prior to this release of fifteen hundred pages of documents we didn't know who we use very little about him but now we know a lot of that in and of the the documents revealed that he was of of a very highly regarded engineer and navy engineer but he ran various opportunities for the navy and rose through the ranks to become a a two star admiral by the time he retired and do you have on the websites and documents that kind of describe you know what he was doing at key points in his career that doesn't help with what William Tompkins save happened in terms of the sequence of the development of the of the navy secret space program and that first document that I have that you have there is a citation that he received for his work at the nineties Pell plant design branch at the bureau of aeronautics and and basically what this citation demonstrates is that he he was he had outstanding technical and engineering knowledge and that he knew about health plans the Harper from power plants high energy output that could be used full it craft and then and this citation basically is something that confirms that this was the man if you were having recoveries of flying saucers extraterrestrial space craft then this would be the man that you would get to go out there and inspect the power plant will be the big generators on these retreat space craft and we note that in nineteen forty two and February twenty five or the night of fifty twenty four twenty five of the Los Angeles area right that according to pumpkins and others they if they wish to flying sources any gravity vehicles that were retrieved and then one of them was taken to Wright Patterson Air Force base or right field which played became what Patterson airforce but they shot at one of those objects Michael and you could hear it paying they said right yeah many witnesses are described that William pockets actually was a young man at the time of the levy was at eighteen years old at the time of the Los Angeles area right and he witnessed it and and he said that these craft some of them just hold it that they that they were exhibiting kind of aerodynamic technologies that will Y. ahead of anything the navy or the army airforce had at the time so these these apparently was shot down one of them taken to right field and on the very same day all of the Los Angeles it right kept them boda received orders to travel from the a bureau of it or not it to right field didn't say what he was there to study but the date April twenty five nineteen forty two I would choose the date that the navy and the army Air Force we covered two of the flying saucers that were part of the listings we incident yeah shows that that that Botha was connected to the Los Angeles area right insofar as the navy was wanting to understand what kind of our system was used for these anti gravity craft so they sent this expert at the time was of the captain Botha to go out there and and and to examine it so this is a citation he received for his work at the bureau there they were not X. I have other documents that I can go through if you'd like okay let's go to the phones now we'll go to Steve and Shelton Washington on the wildcard line hello Steve thanks for calling go ahead wow thank you guys you got a couple years ago George eight Pauline about a friend that was in the military in nineteen eighty one yeah hi little show for you to get these around you need to have general Colin Powell in a couple of kernels up in a white stated no West Germany watch the very large triangular shaped ship land in East Germany was there for about thirty five minutes before take off again and he was told not to talk about the incident for twenty five years wow I don't know if you recall B. tell yet I do remember that I believe them and my question is my first question is not if the ships are so large and it is less than the navy fleet where are they being built are they being built all the earth I had just told me how we keep people quiet if we're building spaces who's building them out there what what thinks about Christian faith as far as with it being built what tribe do pumpkins has said is that there's a facility near the Wasatch mountains in Utah where is there used underground hang is that are used for assembling the lodge.
