"KFI AM six forty. And welcome back to coast to coast, Scott Smith with us, Scott. Let's talk a little bit about the work. You've done on the visions of the Virgin Mary to us are back to you. Go you go back to Fatima. Yeah. And there were a lot of minor ones as well. And I think that in Catholic culture, there's probably many reported ones that I didn't go deep on this. But the most accessible and objective account. I would recommend would be Scott Rokos book called miracles. And there's actually a photo of the Virgin Mary in the book peering inside, tune Egypt of all places and the photos, probably not faked. This was taken in many many many decades ago. I think most of your listeners probably know there were about forty thousand people at fighting my who including a lot of atheists who were witness to these repeated, visions and. They probably have heard that. There was a silver disc that appeared I thought the sun came down. Yeah. Something like that that it was like a weird Senate hovered, you know. And so the assumption by people who believe in UFO's is this is somehow part of a, you know, a control system aliens are trying to impose by projecting these saints or these angels, or whatever they are. And he goes on to show other impressive evidence for Catholicism as a true religion, the incorruptibles there's about a hundred of the saints whose bodies never decompose. The I think everybody knows about the stigmata the wounds of Christ. And some of the saints Teresa viola was very well testified that she levitated, and there is a been a recent documentary mentally by William freed Ken who did the exorcist on the Vatican's last major exorcists. And he's an agnostic. So it it seems like somebody wants us to believe in Catholicism. So the question is why and know how would how should one respond to that? If you're not Catholic. And what I what he says is first of all understand. These are not just the lot of this stuff. Can't be dismissed as psychosomatic has the skeptics would. And it can't be things like the stigmata or they certainly the the incorruptible bodies can't be said just to be some kind of psychological or wishful thinking or anything like that. There has to be a psychic element that goes with this. And in the case of these alleged saints or angels that our people if you accept this is evidence for policies, and then how do you explain the Hindu gods? Appearing Richard Thompson's alien identities. Give lots of examples of that. What about Mohammed who I spent time in Saudi Arabia and Mohammed wrote or dictated, a very beautiful Arabic that would be beyond his literate abilities, which basically illiterate, and he would memorize all these revelations or more closer to home for me the angel Moroni appearing to Joseph Smith and. I Harold bloom wrote a book called the American religions famous literary critic and any pointed out that Joseph Smith was one of the few people who can make other people see his visions, and there were hundreds of people who said they saw angels at the kirtland temple dedication. So the point is supernatural manifestations of angels and saints. You can't say, oh, well that is the religion the Mormons probably in their history would say they take they in the Catholics are probably contenders. For the the Gold Cup for having these kind of things. So I think they do go with truth. I do think that if something has a real supernatural core do it. There will be these things, but you can't take these on face value is evidence that the bible or the Cran or the book of Mormon are the only pass. But but I learned a lot from it. Which is that there? There's this tremendous tradition of witnesses. You know from Mexico to Portugal and Yugoslavia and so forth, where they have, you know, thousands of people have witnessed these entities that appeared to them. So it's an intriguing and kind of under reported underappreciated a phenomenon. It's amazing Scott how you've tied UFO's into these things to how did that happen. Well, I originally thought that oh these must just be extraterrestrials. And so on the one hand, I was just kind of curious. I didn't think I'd find it answer. About this about whether there was any kind of evidence for it. And I was astonished by a couple of things which I recount in one of my chapters, and that is if you take some of the best known sightings, and I I give a few of these. And then you go back and read the books by the skeptics that are supposedly refuting these events. It's absolutely amazing. How often they either lie or they're lying to themselves because you can compare the original events, and then go back and see what they say happened, and then their explanations don't make any sense and probably the most famous defector from the skeptical field was Jaylen Hynek, there's this new TV program the blue book project, I think it's called. Yeah. And and he he was the official the bunker of UFO's for the air force when there was all this hysteria. And then he flipped. Yeah. And he founded the center for UFO studies in his right hand guy was shocked filet who went onto become a great theorist about what these phenomena could be. So when I looked into this. I was really impressed with how much evidence hard evidence. There was that something was there. You know, experienced pilots radar burns on the ground. You know, all this kind of stuff there were even as probably a lot of your listeners know whole wave in the Hudson valley and New York for maybe five thousand people saw these great sightings. Yeah. I it's standing how much information is. And yet when you talk to the skeptics off, there's nothing proven. This would have to take a great government conspiracy to cover this up and so forth, and it's really. Just another example of how close minded and uninformed. These guys are now my thinking on all this has evolved in the book. I don't bring up the abduction thing or what this phenomenon really could be because I want to focus people on the hard evidence. Because the message there is we don't know what these things are. They're worth studying, and this is where the so-called skeptics actually reveal themselves to be debunked who have no interest in the truth because if they weren't afraid of this stuff if they didn't see all these so-called paranormal things slope to belief in God, they wouldn't be. So irrational about it and the whole history of UFO's is filled with lies not just from the government. But from their so-called scientific co conspirators, and the some of the cases I side in the Booker beyond any. Kind of explanation. So I show exactly how the the defenders of the atheist skeptic physician try to blow smoke and just miss all these things, and but eventually I came around to shock fillets theory, which is these entities really aren't extraterrestrials. There might be some some of these might just be people from another planet who landed and realize we were too crazy to mess with. And you know, that's why they don't land on the proverbial lighthouse lot. But I think it's more of a paranormal phenomena, and then then like hard flying saucer technology, in most cases. You know, when we look at all of this, Scott, let me ask you the sixty four thousand dollar question. And that is in your opinion. What is God? Okay. Yes. I may have to raise my price dancer this eighty four. So here here, I you can as I said, I reverse engineer the answer to these things to try to figure out what was wrong with conventional wisdom, and and what I what I have to say. And I and I respect people's spirituality, and if people are happy with their path they can go to the refrigerator and get a snack. Why I explain this? Because it's really quite obvious that the traditional notion of God doesn't really work very well. And then the to some extent understand this. But let's just consider for a moment. The assumption that God is all knowing and all powerful. So he gave us genetics. He put us in our social circumstances to which we were born this help farm personalities and most people don't know this. But the subconscious has been proven to be a literally a million times more powerful than that. Little chattering monkey we call the conscious mind and also all of this means that our physical and mental weaknesses. Whether it be schizophrenia or a tendency to cancer, or whatever, you know, we're loaded up with all this programming. And then supposedly God waved a magic wand called free will absolving him for any responsibility for what happens to us. And yet we're supposed to find the truth. We're supposed to believe in the true religion, behave in a certain way, according to the current interpretation, and then try to get to heaven, basically to kind of make it really simple and an eastern philosophy really isn't any better because it turns reincarnation karma into this all powerful all knowing God, the, but this whole notion breaks down when you think about it because the chaos of the world that were thrown into it right down to the quantum level. Makes it impossible for a God. Or? Any great psychic to predict what's going to happen. There's too many moving parts here. Most people don't even realize how why they've had bad relationships. Harvey'll Hendrix wrote a book called I getting the love you want where he says, you know, in your first few months of life your behavior in relationships is pretty much set in concrete. I think it was Saint Paul said, I don't know why it is. I do the things I do something to that effect. We don't realize that we are really puppets of our subconscious now into this crazy world, we're supposedly being put by a loving God who wants us to come to heaven or whatever the faith says and yet. When you dig back into history realize a quarter of all the people who were born a hundred billion people died in early childhood. So how does this square either? With the notion of the monotheistic religions that were supposed to lead a life. Obey the commandments or the eastern religions that books. We didn't do everything. Right. We're gonna come back and do it better. A second or third or tenth time. Furthermore, what about evolution as I show in my book? There is no evidence that God or aliens guided evolution I mean, it took five hundred million years one hundred and eighty million years for the dinosaurs. That was kind of a wasteful detour on the way to human who only emerged about two hundred thousand years ago. So it does it there's no evidence for intelligence design that doesn't sound like a God who's all powerful moving these things along. But then think about this. Why did this loving God not reveal the existence of germs or even Santa the need for sanitation? Or at least give us anesthesia, so we didn't have to suffer so much, but it's worse than that. I would say I think about our our lives. What is it that relates to the eternal? If we are here try to become. More spiritual people whether by eastern or western religious standards. I consider the lives throughout history. Most people were preoccupied with just trying to starve, but even now in the twenty first century, we spend a third of our lives either studying for work or commuting working a third sleeping and the rest of the time. We're fooling around with our Twitter feed or watching sports or something. What what does any of this has to do with that? So you have to say the concept of God that is depicted in religious scripture can't possibly be right? So what would you say ATS sarong, eighth atheists? Are are right about the fact that the traditional notion of God doesn't make any sense that we are put here, you know, God placed us here in order for us to spiritually develop others way too much suffering for a loving God to have just thrown us into the mix. So I'm sympathetic to their feeling their problem is they're not interested in God. They want to deny any kind of supernatural paranormal thing, and that's where they go wrong. There is is superstitious as the most fundamentalist is. It's just they have a different kind of religion. When I talk to them, they'll always say, well, so. And so professor at Berkley says, there's no ESP just to give you an example. And I say, well, why don't you read a book on the latest scientific research? Nope. I've been told that's nonsense. That's exactly like, the Catholic. Who says well, I can't read that book..

There is no evidence that God or aliens guided evolution I mean, it took five hundred million years one hundred and eighty million years for the dinosaurs. That was kind of a wasteful detour on the way to human who only emerged about two hundred thousand years ago. So it does it there's no evidence for intelligence design that doesn't sound like a God who's all powerful moving these things along. But then think about this. Why did this loving God not reveal the existence of germs or even Santa the need for sanitation? Or at least give us anesthesia. So we didn't have to suffer so much, but it's worse than that. I would say think about our our lives. What is it that relates to the eternal? If we are here to try to become more spiritual people, whether by eastern or western religious standards, consider the lives throughout history. Most people were preoccupied with just trying to starve, but even now in the twenty first century, we spend a third of our lives either studying for work or commuting working a third sleeping and the rest of the time. We're fooling around with her Twitter feed or watching sports or something like that. What what does any of this has to do with that? So you have to say the concept of God that is depicted in religious scripture can't possibly be right? So what would you say ATS, sarong atheists are are right about the fact. That the traditional notion of God doesn't make any sense that we are put here, you know, God placed us here in order for us to spiritually develop. There's way too much suffering for a loving God to have just thrown us into the mix..

"Five six five. And welcome back to coast to coast, Scott Smith with us, Scott. Let's talk a little bit about the work. You've done on the visions of the Virgin Mary. How far back to you. Go. Do you? Go back to Fatima. Yeah. And there were a lot of minor ones as well. And I think that in Catholic culture, there's probably many unreported ones that I didn't go deep on this. But the most accessible and objective account. I would recommend would be Scott Rokos book called miracles, and there's actually a photo of the Virgin Mary in the book carrying inside tune Egypt of all places and the photos, probably not faked. This was taken many many many decades ago. I think most of your listeners probably know there were about forty thousand people at fighting my who including a lot of atheists who were witness to these repeated visions, and they probably have heard that. There was a silver disc that appeared I thought the sun came down. Yeah. Something like that that it was like. A weird send that hovered, you know. And so the assumption by people who believe in you, foes is this is somehow part of a, you know, a control system aliens are trying to impose by projecting these saints or these angels, or whatever they are. And he goes on to show other impressive evidence for Catholicism as a true religion, the incorruptibles there's about a hundred of the saints whose bodies never decompose, the I think everybody knows about the stigmata the ones have Christ and some of the saints. Theresa of AVI live is very well testified that she levitated, and there is a been a recent documentary mentally by William freed Ken who did the exorcist on the Vatican's last major exorcist, and he's an agnostic. So I. It it seems like somebody wants us to believe in Catholicism. So the question is why and you know, how would how should respond to that? If you're not Catholic. And what I what he says is first of all understand. These are not just the lot of the stuff can't be dismissed as psychosomatic has skeptics would. I, and I it can't be things like the stigmata or they certainly the the incorruptible bodies can't be said just to be some kind of psychological or wishful thinking or anything like that. There has to be a psychic element that goes with this. And in the case of these alleged saints or angels that are here the people if you accept this as evidence for Catholicism, then how do you explain the Hindu gods? Appearing and Richard Thompson's alien identities. Give lots of examples. Of that. What about Mohammed who I spent time in Saudi Arabia and Mohammed wrote or dictated a very beautiful Arabic that would be beyond his literate abilities was basically illiterate. And he would memorize all these revelations or more closer to home for me the angel Morona appearing to Joseph Smith and Harold bloom wrote a book called the American religion is of famous literary critic, and and he pointed out that Joseph Smith was one of the few people who can make other people see his visions, and there were hundreds of people who said they saw angels at the kirtland temple dedication. So the point is supernatural manifestations of angels and saints. I you can't say, oh, well that is the religion the Mormons probably in their history would say they take that. They in the Catholics are probably contenders. For the the Gold Cup for having these kind of things. So I think they do go with truth. I do think that if something has a real supernatural core do it. There will be these things, but you can't take these on face value as evidence that the bible or the Koran or the book of Mormon are the only path. But but I learned a lot from it, which is that there. There's this tremendous tradition of witnesses, you know, from Mexico to Portugal and Yugoslavia and so forth, where they have, you know, thousands of people have witnessed these entities that appeared to them. So it's an intriguing and kind of under reported underappreciated phenomenon. It's amazing Scott how you've tied. You Afo send these things to how did that happen? Well, I originally thought that oh these must just be extraterrestrials. And so on the one hand, I was just kind of curious I didn't think I'd find it answer about this about whether there was any kind of evidence for it. And I was astonished by a couple of things which I recount in one of my chapters, and that is if you take some of the best known sightings, and I I give a few of these. And then you go back and read the books by the skeptics that are supposedly refuting these events. It's absolutely amazing. How often they either lie or they're lying to themselves because you can compare the original events and then go. Go back and see what they say happened, and then their explanations don't make any sense and probably the most famous defector from the skeptical field was jail and Hynix. There's this new TV program the blue book project, I think it's called his show back. Yeah. And and he he was the official the bunker of UFO's for the air force when there was all this hysteria. And then he flipped. Yeah. And he founded the center for UFO studies in his right hand guy was shocked filet who went on to become a great theorist about what these phenomena could be. So when I looked into this. I was really impressed with how much evident hard evidence. There was that something was there. You know, experienced pilots radar burns on the ground. You know, all this kind of stuff there were even as probably a lot of your listeners know, a whole. Wave in the Hudson valley and New York for maybe five thousand people saw these great sightings. Yeah. I it's astounding. How much information is? And yet when you talk to the skeptics, there's nothing proven. This would have to take a great government conspiracy to cover this up and so forth. And it's really just another example of how close minded and uninformed. These guys are now my thinking on all this has evolved in the book. I don't bring up the abduction thing or what this phenomenon really could be because I want to focus people on the hard evidence. Because the message there is we don't know what these things are. They're worth studying, and this is where the so-called skeptics actually reveal themselves to be two bunkers who have no interest in the truth. Because if they weren't afraid of this stuff if they didn't see all these so-called paranormal things as a slippery slope to belief. And God they wouldn't be. So irrational about it and the whole history of UFO's is filled with lies not just from the government. But from their so-called scientific co conspirators, and the some of the cases I side in the book Booker beyond any kind of explanation. So I show exactly how the the defenders of the atheist skeptic physician try to blow smoke and dismiss all these things. And but eventually I came around to shock fillets theory, which is these entities really aren't extraterrestrials. There might be some some of these might just be people from another planet who landed and realize we were too crazy to mess with. And that's why they don't. Land on the proverbial lighthouse lot. But I think it's more of a paranormal and than than like hard flying saucer technology, in most cases. You know, when we look at all of this, Scott, let me ask you the sixty four thousand dollar question. And that is in your opinion. What is God? Okay. Yes. I may have to raise my priced answer this here fourth. So here here, I I you can as I said, I reverse engineer the answer to these things to try to figure out what was wrong with conventional wisdom, and and what I what I have to say. And I and I respect people's spirituality, and if people are happy with their path they can go to the refrigerator and get a snack. Why I explain this? Because it's really quite obvious that the traditional notion of God doesn't really work very well. And then the to some extent understand this. But let's just consider for a moment. The assumption that God is all knowing and all powerful. So he gave us genetics. He put us in our social circumstances to which we were born this help farm our personalities and most people don't know this. But the subconscious has been proven to be literally a million times more powerful than. That little chattering monkey we call the conscious mind and also all of this means that our physical and mental weaknesses. Whether it be schizophrenia or a tendency to cancer, or whatever, you know, we're loaded up with all this programming. And then supposedly God waved a magic wand called free will absolving him for any responsibility for what happens to us. And yet we're supposed to find the truth. We're supposed to believe in the true religion, behave in a certain way, according to the current interpretation, and then try to get to heaven, basically to kind of make it really simple, and and eastern philosophy really isn't any better because it turns reincarnation karma into this all powerful all knowing God, the, but this whole notion breaks down when you think about it because the chaos of the world that were thrown into at right down to the quantum level. Makes it impossible for a guide or. Any great psychic to predict what's going to happen. There's too many moving parts here. Most people don't even realize why they've had bad relationships. Harvey'll Hendrix wrote a book called getting the lucky what where he says, you know, in your first few months of life your behavior in relationships is pretty much set in concrete. I think it was Saint Paul said, I don't know why it is. I do the things I do something to that effect. We don't realize that we are really puppets of our sub conscious now into this crazy world, we're supposedly being put by a loving God who wants us to come to heaven or whatever the faith says and yet when you dig back into history realize a quarter of all the people who were born a hundred billion people died in early childhood. So how does this square? Either. With the notion of the monotheistic religions that were supposed to lead a life. Obey the commandments or the eastern religions that hoops, we didn't do everything. Right. We're gonna come back and do it better the second or third or tenth time. Furthermore, what about evolution as I show in my book? There is no evidence that God or aliens guided evolution I mean, it took five hundred million years one hundred and eighty million years for the dinosaurs. That was kind of a wasteful detour on the way to human who only emerged about two hundred thousand years ago. So it does it there's no evidence for intelligence design that doesn't sound like a God who's all powerful moving these things along. But then think about this. Why did this loving God not reveal the existence of germs or even Santa the need for sanitation? Or at least give us anesthesia. So we didn't have to suffer so much, but it's worse than that.

We're fulling around with our Twitter feed or watching sports or something. What what does any of this have to do with that? So you have to say the concept of God that is depicted in religious scripture can't possibly be right? So what would you say ATS sarong, eighth atheists? Are are right about the fact that the traditional notion of God doesn't make any sense that we are put here, you know, God play. This here in order for us to spiritually develop. There's way too much suffering for a loving God to have just thrown us into the mix..

Placed us here in order for us to spiritually develop. There's way too much suffering for a loving God to have just thrown into the mix. So I'm sympathetic to their feeling their problem is they're not interested in God. They want to deny any kind of supernatural parents anything. And that's where they go wrong. There is as superstitious as the most fundamentalist is. It's just they have a different kind of religion. When I talk to them, they'll always say, well, so and so professor at Berkley says, there's no ESP just to give you an example..

Whether it be schizophrenia or a tendency to cancer, or whatever, you know, we're loaded up with all this programming. And then supposedly God waved a magic wand called free will absolving him for any responsibility for what happens to us. And yet we're supposed to find the truth. We're supposed to believe in the true religion, behave in a certain way, according to the current interpretation, and then try to get to heaven, basically to kind of make it really simple and an eastern philosophy really isn't any better because it turns reincarnation karma into this all powerful knowing God, the, but it this whole notion breaks down when you think about it because the chaos of the world that were thrown into it right down to the quantum level. Makes it impossible for a God. Or? Any great psychic to predict what's going to happen. There's too many moving parts here. Most people don't even realize how why they've had bad relationships. Harvey'll Hendrix wrote a book called I getting lucky what where he says, you know, in your first few months of life your behavior in relationships is pretty much set in concrete. I think it was Saint Paul said, I don't know why it is. I do the things I do something to that effect. We don't realize that we are really puppets of our subconscious now into this crazy world, we're supposedly being put by a loving God who wants us to come to heaven or whatever the faith says and yet when you dig back into history realize a quarter of all the people who were born a hundred billion people died in early childhood. So how does this square? Either. With the notion of the monotheistic religions that were supposed to lead a life. Obey the commandments or the eastern religions that books. We didn't do everything. Right. We're gonna come back and do it better a second or third or tenth time. Furthermore, what about evolution as I show in my book? There is no evidence that God or aliens guided evolution I mean, it took five hundred million years one hundred and eighty million years for the dinosaurs. That was kind of a wasteful detour on the way to human who only emerged about two hundred thousand years ago. So it does it there's no evidence for intelligence designed that doesn't sound like a God who's all powerful moving these things along. But then think about this. Why did this loving God not reveal the existence of germs or even Santa the need for sanitation? Or at least give us anesthesia. So we didn't have to suffer so much, but it's worse than that. I would say think about our our lives. What is it that relates to the eternal? If we are here to try to become more spiritual people, whether by eastern or western religious standards, I consider the lives throughout history. Most people were preoccupied with just trying to starve, but even now in the twenty first century, we spend a third of our lives either studying for work or commuting working a third sleeping and the rest of the time. We're fooling around with her Twitter feed or watching sports or something like that. What what does any of this has to do with that? So you have to say the concept of God that is depicted in religious scripture can't possibly be right? So, but when you say atheists sarong, the ATS are are right about the fact. That the traditional notion of God doesn't make any sense that we are put here, you know, God placed us here in order for us to spiritually develop. There's way too much suffering for a loving God to have just thrown into the mix..

"Five six five. And welcome back to coast to coast, Scott Smith with us, Scott. Let's talk a little bit about the work. You've done on the visions of the Virgin Mary to us are back to you go and you go back to Fatima. Yeah. And there were a lot of minor ones as well. And I think that in Catholic culture, there's probably many unreported ones that I didn't go deep on this. But the most accessible and objective account. I would recommend would be Scott row goes book called miracles. And there's actually a photo of the Virgin Mary in the book peering inside, tune Egypt of all places and the photos, probably not faked. This was taken many many many decades ago. I think most of your listeners probably know there were about forty thousand people at fighting my who including a lot of atheists who were witness to these repeated visions, and they probably have heard that. There was a silver disc that appeared I thought the sun came down. Yeah. Something like that. It was like. A weird send that hovered, you know. And so the assumption by people who believe in UFO's is this is somehow part of a, you know, a control system aliens are trying to impose by projecting these saints or these angels, or whatever they are. And he goes on to show other impressive evidence for Catholicism as a true religion, the incorruptibles there's about a hundred of the saints whose bodies never decompose the I think everybody knows about the stigmata the wounds of Christ and some of the saints. Theresa of AVI live is very well testified that she levitated, and there is a been a recent documentary mentally by William freakin who did the exorcist on the Vatican's last major exorcist, and he's an agnostic. So. It it seems like somebody wants us to believe in Catholicism. So the question is why you know, how would how should one respond to that? If you're not Catholic. And what I what he says is first of all understand. These are not just the lot of this stuff. Can't be dismissed as psychosomatic as skeptics would. And it can't be things like the stigmata or certainly the the incorruptible bodies can't be said just to be some kind of psychological or wishful thinking or anything like that. There has to be a psychic element that goes with this. And in the case of these alleged saints or angels that are people if you accept this is evidence for solipsism. Then how do you explain the Hindu gods? Appearing Richard Thompson's alien identities. Give lots of examples of that. What about Mohammed who I spent time in Saudi Arabia, and we'll Hamad road or dictated a very beautiful Arabic that would be beyond his literate abilities. It was basically illiterate. And he would memorize all these revelations or more. Closer to home for me, the angel Moroni appearing to Joseph Smith and Harold bloom wrote a book called the American religion is of famous literary critic, and and he pointed out that Joseph Smith was one of the few people who can make other people see his visions, and there were hundreds of people who said they saw angels at the kirtland temple dedication. So the point is supernatural manifestations of angels and saints. I you can't say, oh, well that is the religion the Mormons probably in their history would say they take they in the Catholics are probably contenders. For the the Gold Cup for having these kind of things. So I think they do go with truce. I do think that if something has a real supernatural core do it. There will be these things, but you can't take these on face value as evidence that the. The bible or the Koran or the book of Mormon are the only path. But but I learned a lot from it. Which is that there? There's this tremendous tradition of witnesses, you know, from Mexico to Portugal and Yugoslavia and so forth, where they have, you know, thousands of people have witnessed these entities that appeared to them. So it's an intriguing and kind of under reported underappreciated phenomenon. It's amazing Scott how you've tied UFO's into these things to how did that happen. Well, I originally thought that oh these must just be extraterrestrials. And so on the one hand, I was just kind of curious I didn't think I'd find the answer about this about whether there was any kind of evidence for it. And I was astonished by a couple of things which I recount in one of my chapters, and that is if you take some of the best known sightings, and I I give a few of these. And then you go back and read the books by the skeptics that are supposedly refuting these events. It's absolutely amazing. How often they either lie or they're lying to themselves because you can compare the original events and then go. Oh back and see what they say happened, and then their explanations don't make any sense and probably the most famous defector from the skeptical field was jail and Hynek. There's this new TV program the blue book project, I think it's called his show back. Yeah. And and he he was the official the bunker of UFO's for the air force when there was all this hysteria. And then he flipped. Yeah. And he founded the center for UFO studies in his right hand guy were shocked filet who went on to become a great theorist about what these phenomena could be. So when I looked into this. I was really impressed with how much evidence hard evidence. There was that something was there. You know, experienced pilots radar burns on the ground. You know, all this kind of stuff there were even as probably a lot of your listeners know, a whole. Wave in the Hudson valley and New York for maybe five thousand people saw these great sightings. Yeah. I it's astounding. How much information is? And yet when you talk to the skeptics, there's nothing proven. This would have to take a great government conspiracy to cover this up and so forth. And it's really just another example of how close minded and uninformed. These guys are now my thinking on all this has evolved in the book. I don't bring up the abduction thing or what this phenomenon really could be because I want to focus people on the hard evidence. Because the message there is we don't know what these things are. They're worth studying, and this is where the so-called skeptics actually reveal themselves to be debunked who have no interest in the truth because if they weren't afraid of this stuff if they didn't see all these so-called paranormal things as a slippery slope to belief. And God they wouldn't be. So irrational about it and the whole history of UFO's is filled with lies not just from the government. But from their so-called scientific co conspirators, and the some of the cases I signed in the book are beyond any kind of explanation. So I show exactly how the the defenders of the atheist skeptic physician try to blow smoke and dismiss all these things. And but eventually I came around to shock fillets theory, which is these entities really aren't extraterrestrials. There might be some some of these might just be people from another planet who landed and realize we were too crazy to mess with. And you know, that's why they don't. Land on the proverbial lighthouse lawn. But I think it's more of a paranormal phenomena, then then like hard flying saucer technology, in most cases. You know, when we look at all of this, Scott, let me ask you the sixty four thousand dollar question. And that is in your opinion. What is God? Okay. Yes. I I may have to raise my priced answer. This eighty four. So here here, I I you can as I said, I reverse engineer the answer to these things to try to figure out what was wrong with conventional wisdom, and and what I what I have to say. And I and I respect people's spirituality, and if people are happy with their path they can go to the refrigerator and get a snack. Why I explain this because it's really quite obvious that the traditional notion of God. Doesn't really work. Very well. And then the ACS to some extent understand this. But. Let's just consider for a moment. The assumption that God is all knowing and all powerful. So he gave us genetics. He put us in our social circumstances to which we were born this help farm personalities and most people don't know this. But the subconscious has been proven to be a literally a million times more powerful than that little chattering monkey we call the conscious mind and also all of this means that our physical and mental weaknesses. Whether it be schizophrenia or a tendency to cancer, or whatever, you know, we're loaded up with all this programming.

I think it was Saint Paul said, I don't know why it is. I do the things I do something to that effect.

But the subconscious has been proven to be a literally a million times more powerful than that little chattering. Monkey? We call the conscious mind and also all of this means that our physical and mental weaknesses. Whether it be schizophrenia or a tendency to cancer, or whatever, you know, we're loaded up with all this programming. And then supposedly God waved a magic wand called free will absolving him for any responsibility for what happens to us. And yet we're supposed to find the truth for supposed to believe in the true religion, behave in a certain way, according to the current interpretation, and then try to get to heaven, basically to kind of make it really simple and an eastern philosophy really isn't any better because it turns reincarnation karma into this all powerful all knowing God, the, but it this whole notion breaks down when you think about it because the chaos of the world that were thrown into it right down to the quantum level. Makes it impossible for a guide or. Any great psychic to predict what's going to happen. There's too many moving parts here. Most people don't even realize how why they've had bad relationships. Harvey'll Hendrix wrote a book called I getting the love you want where he says, you know, in your first few months of life your behavior in relationships is pretty much set in concrete. I think it was Saint Paul said, I don't know why it is. I do the things I do something to that effect. We don't realize that we are really puppets of our sub conscious now into this crazy world, we're supposedly being put by a loving God who wants us to come to heaven or whatever the faith says and yet when you dig back into history realize a quarter of all the people who were born a hundred billion people died in early childhood. So how does this square? Either. With the notion of the monotheistic religions that were supposed to lead a life. Obey the commandments or the eastern religions that books. We didn't do everything. Right. We're gonna come back and do it better a second or third or tenth time. Furthermore, what about evolution as I show in my book? There is no evidence that God or aliens guided evolution I mean, it took five hundred million years one hundred eighty million years for the dinosaurs. That was kind of a wasteful detour on the way to human who only emerged about two hundred thousand years ago. So it does it there's no evidence for intelligence design that doesn't sound like a God who's all powerful moving these things along. But then think about this. Why did this loving God not reveal the existence of germs or even Santa the need for sanitation? Or at least give us anesthesia. So we didn't have to suffer so much, but it's worse than that. I would say I think about our our lives. What is it that relates to the eternal? If we are here to try to become more spiritual people, whether by eastern or western religious standards, I consider the lives throughout history. Most people were preoccupied with just trying not to starve, but even now in the twenty first century, we spend a third of our lives either studying for work or commuting working a third sleeping and the rest of the time. We're fooling around with our Twitter feed or watching sports or something. What what does any of this have to do with that? So you have to say the concept of God that is depicted in religious scripture can't possibly be right? So, but when you say atheists sarong, eighth atheists are are right about the fact that the traditional notion of God doesn't make any sense that we are put here, you know, God placed us here in order for us to spiritually develop. There's way too much suffering for a loving God to have just thrown us into the mix..

"Five six five. And welcome back to coast to coast, Scott Smith with us, Scott. Let's talk a little bit about the work. You've done on the visions of the Virgin Mary to us are back to you go and you go back to Fatima. Yeah. And there were a lot of minor ones as well. And I think that in Catholic culture, there's probably many on reported ones that I didn't go deep on this. But the most successful and objective account. I would recommend would be Scott rogue goes book called miracles. And there's actually a photo of the Virgin Mary in the book peering inside, tune Egypt of all places and the photos, probably not faked. This was taken in many many many decades ago. I think most of your listeners probably know there were about forty thousand people at fighting my who including a lot of atheists who were witness to these repeated, visions and. They probably have heard that. There was a silver disc that appeared I thought the sun came down. Yeah. Something like that that it was like a weird send that hovered, you know. And so the assumption by people who believe in UFO's is this is somehow part of a, you know, a control system aliens are trying to impose by projecting these saints or these angels, or whatever they are. And he goes on to show other impressive evidence for Catholicism as a true religion, the incorruptibles there's about a hundred of the saints whose bodies never he. Composed. The I think everybody knows about the stigmata the wounds of Christ in some of the saints. Theresa of AVI live is very well testified that she levitated and there is a been a recent documentary mentoring by William freed Clinton. Who did the exorcist on the Vatican's last major exorcist, and he's an agnostic? So I it it seems like somebody wants us to believe in Catholicism. So the question is why and you know, how would how should one respond to that? If you're not Catholic. And what I what he says is first of all understand. These are not just the lot of this stuff. Can't be dismissed as psychosomatic has skeptics would. And it can't be things like this oughta or they certainly the the incorruptible bodies can't be said just to be some kind of psychological or wishful thinking or anything like that. There has to be a psychic element that goes with this. And in the case of these alleged saints or angels that here people if you accept this is evidence for Catholicism, then how do you explain the Hindu gods? Appearing and Richard Thompson's alien identities. Give lots of examples of that. What about Mohammed who I spent time in Saudi Arabia and Mohammed road or dictated a very beautiful Arabic that would be beyond his literate abilities. It was basically illiterate. And he would memorize all these revelations or more. Closer to home for me, the angel Moroni appearing to Joseph Smith and Harold bloom wrote a book called the American religion is of famous literary critic and any pointed out that Joseph Smith was one of the few people who can make other people see his visions, and there were hundreds of people who said they saw angels at the kirtland temple dedication. So the point is supernatural manifestations of angels and saints. You can't say, oh, well that is the religion the Mormons probably in their history would say they take that they in the Catholics are probably contenders. For the the Gold Cup for having these kind of things. So I think they do go with truce. I do think that if something has a real supernatural core do it. There will be these things, but you can't take these on face value as evidence that the. The bible or the Koran or the book of Mormon are the only path. But but I learned a lot from it. Which is that there? There's this tremendous tradition of witnesses, you know, from Mexico to Portugal and Yugoslavia and so forth, where they have, you know, thousands of people have witnessed these entities that appeared to them. So it's an intriguing and kind of under reported under appreciated phenomenon. It's amazing Scott how you've tied you foes into these things to how did that happen. Well, I originally thought that oh these must just be extraterrestrials. And so on the one hand, I was just kind of curious I didn't think I'd find it answer about this about whether there was any kind of evidence for it. And I was astonished by a couple of things which I recount in one of my chapters, and that is if you take some of the best known sightings, and I I give a few of these. And then you go back and read the books by the skeptics that are supposedly refuting these events. It's absolutely amazing. How often they either lie or they're lying to themselves because you can compare the original events and then go. Go back and see what they say happened, and then their explanations don't make any sense and probably the most famous defector from the skeptical field was jail and Hynek. There's this new TV program the blue book project, I think it's called back. Yeah. And and he he was the official the bunker of UFO's for the air force when there was all the Steria. And then he flipped. Yeah. And he founded the center for you. A folks studies in his right hand guy were shocked filet who went onto become a great theorist about what these phenomena could be. So when I looked into this. I was really impressed with how much evidence hard evidence. There was that something was there. You know, experienced pilots radar burns on the ground. You know, all this kind of stuff there were even as probably a lot of your listeners know, a whole. Wave in the Hudson valley and New York for maybe five thousand people saw these great sightings. Yeah. I it's astounding. How much information is? And yet when you talk to the skeptics, there's nothing proven. This would have to take a great government conspiracy to cover this up and so forth. And it's really just another example of how close minded and uninformed. These guys are now my thinking on all this has evolved in the book. I don't bring up the abduction thing or what this phenomenon really could be because I want to focus people on the hard evidence. Because the message there is we don't know what these things are. They're worth studying, and this is where the so-called skeptics actually reveal themselves to be debunked who have no interest in the truth because if they weren't afraid of this stuff if they didn't see all these so-called paranormal things as a slippery slope to belief. And God they wouldn't be. So irrational about it and the whole history of UFO's is filled with lies not just from the government. But from their so-called scientific co conspirators, and the some of the cases I side in the Booker beyond any kind of explanation. So I show exactly how the the defenders of the atheist skeptic physician try to blow smoke and dismiss all these things. And but eventually I came around to shock fillets theory, which is these entities really aren't extraterrestrials. There might be some some of these might just be people from another planet who landed and realize we were too crazy to mess with. And you know, that's why they don't land on the proverbial White House lot. But I think it's more of a paranormal phenomena and then. Then like, a hard flying saucer technology in most cases. You know, when we look at all of this, Scott, let me ask you the sixty four thousand dollar question. And that is in your opinion. What is God? Okay. Yes. I may have to raise my price to answer this here. Eighty four. So here here, I I you can as I said, I reverse engineer the answer to these things to try to figure out what was wrong with conventional wisdom, and and what I what I have to say. And I and I respect people's spirituality, and if people are happy with their path they can go to the refrigerator and get a snack. Why I explain this? Because it's really quite obvious that the traditional notion of God doesn't really work very well. And then the ACS to some extent understand this. But let's just consider for a moment. The assumption that God is all knowing and all powerful. So he gave us genetics. He put us in our social circumstances to which we were born this help farm our personalities and most people don't know this. But the subconscious has been proven to be a literally a million times more powerful than that. Little chattering monkey we call the conscious mind and also all of this means that our physical and mental weaknesses. Whether it be schizophrenia or tendency to cancer, or whatever, you know, we're loaded up with all this programming.

Makes it impossible for a God. Or? Any great psychic to predict what's going to happen. There's too many moving parts here. Most people don't even realize how why they've had bad relationships. Harvey'll Hendrix wrote a book called I getting the love you want where he says, you know, in your first few months of life your behavior in relationships is pretty much set in concrete.

They want to deny any kind of supernatural paranoia anything. And that's where they go wrong. There is as superstitious as the most fundamentalist is. It's just they have a different kind of religion. When I talk to them, they'll always say, well, so and so professor at Berkley says, there's no ESP just to give you an example..

They're worth studying, and this is where the so-called skeptics actually reveal themselves to be debunked who have no interest in the truth because if they weren't afraid of this stuff if they didn't see all these so-called paranormal things as a slippery slope to belief and. God they wouldn't be. So irrational about it and the whole history of your foes is filled with lies not just from the government, but from their so-called scientific co conspirators, and the some of the cases I side in the Booker beyond any kind of explanation. So I show exactly how the the defenders of the atheist skeptic physician try to blow smoke and dismiss all these things. And but eventually I came around to shock fillets theory, which is these entities really aren't extraterrestrials. There might be some some of these might just be people from another planet who landed and realize we were too crazy to mess with. And you know, that's why they don't land on the proverbial White House lawn. But I think it's more of a paranormal phenomena and then. Then like, a hard flying, saucer, technology, and most cases. You know, when we look at all of this, Scott, let me ask you the sixty four thousand dollar question. And that is in your opinion. What is God? Okay. Yes. I may have to raise my price to answer. This. Eighty four. So here here, I you can as I said, I reverse engineer the answer to these things to try to figure out what was wrong with conventional wisdom, and and what I what I have to say. And I and I respect people's spirituality, and if people are happy with their path they can go to the refrigerator and get a snack. Why I explain this? Because it's really quite obvious that the traditional notion of God doesn't really work very well. And then the to some extent understand this. But let's just consider for a moment. The assumption that God is all knowing and all powerful. So he gave us genetics. He put us in our social circumstances to which we were born this helped farm our personalities and most people don't know this. But the subconscious has been proven to be a literally a million times more powerful than that little chattering. Monkey we. We call the conscious mind and also all of this means that our physical and mental weaknesses. Whether it be schizophrenia or tendency to cancer or whatever. You know, we're loaded up with all this programming. And then supposedly God waved. A magic wand called free will absolving him for any responsibility for what happens to us. And yet we're supposed to find the truth. We're supposed to believe in the true religion, behave in a certain way, according to the current interpretation, and then try to get to heaven, basically to kind of make it really simple and an eastern philosophy really isn't any better because it turns reincarnation karma into this all powerful knowing God, the, but it this whole notion breaks down when you think about it because the chaos of the world that were thrown into it right down to the quantum level makes it impossible for God or any great psychic to predict what's going to happen. There's too many moving parts. Here. Most people don't even realize how why they've had bad relationships. Harvey'll Hendrix wrote a book called I getting the love you want where he says, you know, in your first few months of life. Your behavior in relationships is pretty much set in concrete. I think it was Saint Paul said, I don't know why it is. I do the things I do something to that effect. We don't realize that we are really puppets of our sub conscious now into this crazy world were supposedly being put by a loving God who wants us to come to heaven or whatever the faith says and yet when you dig back into history realize a quarter of all the people who were born a hundred billion people died in early childhood. So how does this square either? With the notion of the monotheistic religions that were supposed to lead a life. Obey the commandments or the eastern religions that. Whoops. We didn't do everything. Right. We're gonna come back and do it better the second or third or tenth time. Furthermore, what about evolution as I show? Oh in my book. There is no evidence that God or aliens guided evolution. I mean, it took five hundred million years one hundred and eighty million years for the dinosaurs. That was kind of a wasteful detour on the way to human who only emerged about two hundred thousand years ago. So it does it there's no evidence for intelligence designed that doesn't sound like a God who's all powerful moving these things along. But then think about this. Why did this loving God not reveal the existence of germs or even Santa the need for sanitation? Or at least give us anesthesia, so we didn't have to suffer so much, but it's worse than that. I would say. Think about our our lives. What is it that relates to the eternal? If we are here to try to become more spiritual people, whether by eastern or western religious standards, consider the lives throughout history. Most people were preoccupied with just trying to starve, but even now in the twenty first century, we spend a third of our lives either studying for work or commuting working a third sleeping and the rest of the time. We're fooling around with our Twitter feed or watching sports or something. What what does any of this have to do with that? So you have to say the concept of God that is depicted in religious scripture can't possibly be right? So what would you say ATS sarong, eighth atheists? Are are right about the fact that the traditional notion of God doesn't make any sense that we are put here, you know, God place. Here in order for us to spiritually develop. There's way too much suffering for a loving God to have just thrown into the mix..

"And welcome back to coast to coast, Scott Smith with us, Scott. Let's talk a little bit about the work. You've done on the visions of the Virgin Mary to us are back to you go and you go back to Fatima. Yeah. And there were a lot of minor ones as well. And I think that in Catholic culture, there's probably many unreported once and I didn't go deep on this. But the most accessible and objective account. I would recommend would be Scott Rokos book called miracles. And there's actually a photo of the Virgin Mary in the book peering inside, tune Egypt of all places and the photos, probably not faked. This was taken in many many many decades ago. I think most of your listeners probably know there were about forty thousand people at fighting my who including a lot of atheists who were witness to these repeated visions, and they probably have heard that. There was a silver disc that appeared I thought the sun came down. Yeah. Something like that that it was like. A weird send that hovered, you know. And so the assumption by people who believe in UFO's is this is somehow part of a, you know, a control system aliens are trying to impose by projecting these saints or these angels, or whatever they are. And he goes on to show other impressive evidence for Catholicism as a true religion, the incorruptibles there's about a hundred of the saints whose bodies never decompose the I think everybody knows about the stigmata the wounds of Christ and some of the saints. Theresa of AVI live is very well testified that she levitated, and there is a been a recent documentary mentoring by William freed Ken who did the exorcist on the Vatican's last major exorcist, and he's an agnostic. So I. It it seems like somebody wants us to believe in Catholicism. So the question is why and you know, how would how should one respond to that? If you're not Catholic. And what I what he says is first of all understand. These are not just the lot of the stuff can't be dismissed as psychosomatic has skeptics would. And I it can't these things like the stigmata or they certainly the the incorruptible bodies can't be said just to be some kind of psychological or wishful thinking or anything like that. There has to be a psychic element that goes with this. And in the case of these alleged saints or angels that are people if you accept this is evidence for Catholicism, then how do you explain the Hindu gods? Appearing and Richard Thompson's alien identities gives lots of examples of that. What about Mohammed who I spent time in Saudi Arabia and Mohammed wrote or dictated a very beautiful Arabic that would be beyond his literate abilities. It was basically illiterate. And he would memorize all these revelations or more. Closer to home for me, the angel Morona appearing to Joseph Smith and Harold bloom wrote a book called the American religion is of famous literary critic and any pointed out that Joseph Smith was one of the few people who can make other people see his visions, and there were hundreds of people who said they saw angels at the kirtland temple dedication. So the point is supernatural manifestations of angels and saints. I you can't say, oh, well that is the religion the Mormons probably in their history would say they take that they in the Catholics are probably contenders. For the the Gold Cup for having these kind of things. So I think they do go with truce. I do think that if something has a real supernatural core do it. There will be these things, but you can't take these on face value as evidence that the. The bible or the Koran or the book of Mormon are the only path. But but I learned a lot from it. Which is that there? There's a this tremendous tradition of witnesses, you know, from Mexico to Portugal and Yugoslavia and so forth, where they have, you know, thousands of people have witnessed these entities that appeared to them. So it's an intriguing and kind of under reported under appreciated phenomenon. It's amazing Scott how you've tied. You Afo send these things to how did that happen? Well, I originally thought that oh these must just be extraterrestrials. And so on the one hand, I was just kind of curious I didn't think I'd find it answer about this about whether there was any kind of evidence for it. And I was astonished by a couple of things which I recount in one of my chapters, and that is if you take some of the best known sightings, and I I give a few of these. And then you go back and read the books by the skeptics that are supposedly refuting these events. It's absolutely amazing. How often they either lie or they're lying to themselves because you can compare the original events and then go. Oh back and see what they say happened, and then their explanations don't make any sense and probably the most famous defector from the skeptical field was j Allen Hynek. There's this new TV program the blue book project, I think it's called back. Yeah. And and he he was the official the bunker of UFO's for the air force when there was all the Steria. And then he flipped. Yeah. And he founded the center for UFO studies in his right hand guy was shocked filet who went on to become a great theorist about what these phenomena could be. So when I looked into this. I was really impressed with how much evidence hard evidence. There was that something was there. You know, experienced pilots radar burns on the ground. You know, all this kind of stuff there were even as probably a lot of your listeners know, a whole. Wave in Hudson valley and New York for maybe five thousand people saw these great sightings. Yeah. I it's astounding. How much information is? And yet when you talk to the skeptics off, there's nothing proven. This would have to take a great government conspiracy to cover this up and so forth. And it's really just another example of how close minded and uninformed. These guys are now my thinking on all this has evolved in the book. I don't bring up the abduction thing or what this phenomenon really could be because I want to focus people on the hard evidence. Because the message there is we don't know what these things are.

Well, I originally thought that oh these must be extraterrestrials. And so on the one hand, I was just kind of curious I didn't think I'd find an answer about this about whether there was any kind of evidence for it. And I was astonished by a couple of things which I recount in one of my chapters, and that is if you take some of the best known sightings, and I give a few of these. And then you go back and read the books by the skeptics that are supposedly refuting these events. It's absolutely amazing. How often they either lie or they're lying to themselves because you can compare the original events and then go. Oh back and see what they say happened, and then their explanations don't make any sense and. Probably the most famous defector from the skeptical field was jail and Hynek. There's this new TV program the blue book project, I think it's called back. Yeah. And and he he was the official the bunker of UFO's for the air force when there was all this hysteria. And then he flipped. Yeah. And he founded the center for you off. Oh studies in his right hand guy were shocked filet who went onto become a great theorist about what these phenomena could be. So when I looked into this. I was really impressed with how much evidence hard evidence. There was that something was there. You know, experienced pilots radar burns on the ground. You know, all this kind of stuff there were even as probably a lot of your listeners know, a whole wave in the Hudson valley and New York for maybe five thousand people saw these great sightings. Yeah. I it's astounding how much information is. And yet when you talk to the skeptics, there's nothing proven. This would have to take a great government conspiracy to cover this up and so forth. And it's really just another example of how close minded and uninformed. These guys are now my thinking on all this as a Volvo in the book, I don't bring up the abduction thing or what this phenomenon really could be because I want to focus people on the hard evidence. Because the message there is we don't know what these things are. They're worth studying, and this is where the so-called skeptics actually reveal themselves to be debunked who have no interest in the truth because if they weren't afraid of this stuff if they didn't see all these so-called paranormal things as a slippery slope to belief in God, they wouldn't be so irrational about it and the whole history of UFO's is filled. With lies not just from the government, but from their so-called scientific co conspirators, and the some of the cases I side in the book beyond any kind of explanation. So I show exactly how the the defenders of the atheist skeptic physician try to blow smoke and dismiss all these things. And but eventually I came around to shock fillets theory, which is these entities really aren't extraterrestrials. There might be some some of these might just be people from another planet who landed and realize we were too crazy to mess with. And you know, that's why they don't land on the proverbial White House lawn. But I think it's more of a paranormal phenomena, and then then like hard flying saucer technology, in most cases. You know, when we look at all of this, Scott, let me ask you the sixty four thousand dollar question. And that is in your opinion. What is God? Okay. Yes. I may have to raise my price to answer this here. Eighty four. So here here, I you can as I said, I reverse engineer the answer to these things to try to figure out what was wrong with conventional wisdom, and and what I what I have to say. And I and I respect people's spirituality, and if people are happy with their path they can go to the refrigerator and get a snack. Why I explain this? Because it's really quite obvious that the traditional notion of God doesn't really work very well. And and the to some extent understand this. But let's just consider for a moment. The assumption that God is all knowing and all powerful. So he gave us genetics. He put us in our social circumstances into which we were born this help farm our personalities and most people don't know this. But the subconscious has been proven to be a literally a million times more powerful than that little chattering. Monkey? We call the conscious mind and also all of this means that our physical and mental weaknesses. Whether it be schizophrenia or a tendency to cancer, or whatever, you know, we're loaded up with all this programming. And then supposedly God waved a magic wand called free will absolving him for any responsibility for what happens to us. And yet we're supposed to find the truth. We're supposed to believe in the true religion, behave in a certain way, according to the current interpretation, and then try to get to heaven, basically to kind of make it really simple and an eastern philosophy really isn't any better because it turns reincarnation karma into this all powerful knowing God, the, but it this whole notion breaks down when you think about it because the chaos of the world that were thrown into it right down to the quantum level. Makes it impossible for a God. Or? Any great psychic to predict what's going to happen. There's too many moving parts here. Most people don't even realize how why they've had bad relationships. Harvey'll Hendrix wrote a book called I getting the lucky what where he says, you know, in your first few months of life your behavior in relationships is pretty much set in concrete. I think it was Saint Paul said, I don't know why it is. I do the things I do something to that effect. We don't realize that we are really puppets of our subconscious now into this crazy world were supposedly being put by a loving God who wants us to come to heaven or whatever the faith says and yet when you dig back into history realize a quarter of all the people who were born one hundred billion people died in early childhood. So how does this square? Either. With the notion of the monotheistic religions that were supposed to lead a life. Obey the commandments or the eastern religions that hoops, we didn't do everything. Right. We're gonna come back and do it better the second or third or tenth time. Furthermore, what about evolution as I show in my book? There is no evidence that God or aliens guided evolution I mean, it took five hundred million years one hundred and eighty million years for the dinosaurs. That was kind of a wasteful detour on the way human who only emerged about two hundred thousand years ago. So it does it there's no evidence for intelligence design that doesn't sound like a God who's all powerful moving these things along. But then think about this. Why did this loving God not reveal the existence of germs or even Santa the need for sanitation? Or at least give us anesthesia. So we didn't have to suffer so much, but it's worse than that. I would say. Think about our our lives. What is it that relates to the eternal? If we are here to try to become more spiritual people, whether by eastern or western religious standards, I consider the lives throughout history. Most people were preoccupied with just trying to starve, but even now in the twenty first century, we spend a third of our lives either studying for work or commuting working a third sleeping and the rest of the time. We're fooling around with our Twitter feed or watching sports or something like that. What what does any of this has to do with that? So you have to say the concept of God that is depicted in religious scripture can't possibly be right? So what would you say ATS, sarong atheists are are right about the fact that the traditional notion of God doesn't make any sense that we are put here, you know, God. Placed us here in order for us to spiritually develop. There's way too much suffering for a loving God to have just thrown us into the mix..

"Ninety eight seven and thirteen thirty s. And welcome back to coast to coast, Scott Smith with us, Scott. Let's talk a little bit about the work. You've done on the visions of the Virgin Mary to house are back to you. Go. Do you go back to Fatima? Yeah. And there were a lot of minor ones as well. And I think that in Catholic culture, there's probably many unreported ones that I didn't go deep on this. But the most accessible and objective account. I would recommend would be Scott Rokos book called miracles. And there's actually a photo of the Virgin Mary in the book peering inside, tune Egypt of all places and the photos, probably not faked. This was taken in many many many decades ago. I think most of your listeners probably know there were about forty thousand people at fighting my who including a lot of atheists who were witness to these repeated visions. And they probably have heard that. There was a silver disc that appeared. I thought the sun came down. Yeah. Something like that that it was like a weird send that hovered, you know. And so the assumption by people who believe in UFO's is this is somehow part of a, you know, a control system aliens are trying to impose by projecting these saints or these angels, or whatever they are. And he goes on to show other impressive evidence for Catholicism as a true religion, the incorruptibles there's about a hundred of the saints whose bodies never he. Composed. The I think everybody knows about the stigmata the wounds of Christ in some of the saints. Theresa of AVI live is very well testified that she levitated, and there is a been a recent documentary mentoring by William freed Ken who did the exorcist on the Vatican's last major X. Assist, and he's an agnostic. So I it it seems like somebody wants us to believe in Catholicism. So the question is why and you know, how would how should one respond to that? If you're not Catholic. And what I what he says is first of all understand. These are not just the lot of this stuff. Can't be dismissed as psychosomatic has skeptics would. I, and I it can't these things like the stigmata or they certainly the the incorruptible bodies can't be said just to be some kind of psychological or wishful thinking or anything like that. There has to be a psychic element that goes with this. And in the case of these alleged saints or angels that are people if you accept this is evidence for Catholicism. Then how do you explain the Hindu? Gods appearing Richard Thompson's alien identities. Give lots of examples of that. What about Mohammed who I spent time in Saudi Arabia and Mohammed wrote or dictated a very beautiful Arabic that would be beyond his literate abilities. It was basically illiterate. And he would memorize all these revelations or more closer to home for me the angel Morona appearing to Joseph Smith and Harold bloom wrote a book called the American religion is famous literary critic, and and he pointed out that Joseph Smith was one of the few people who can make other people see his visions, and there were hundreds of people who said they saw angels at the kirtland temple dedication. So the point is supernatural manifestations of angels and saints. You can't say, oh, well that is the. Religion the Mormons probably in their history would say they take that they in the Catholics are probably contenders. For the the Gold Cup for having these kinds of things. So I think they do go with truth. I do think that if something has a real supernatural core do it. There will be these things, but you can't take these on face value as evidence at the bible or the Koran or the book of Mormon are the only pass. But but I learned a lot from it. Which is that there? There's a this tremendous tradition of witnesses, you know, from Mexico to Portugal and Yugoslavia and so forth, where they have, you know, thousands of people have witnessed these entities that appeared to them. So it's an intriguing and kind of under reported under appreciated phenomenon. It's amazing Scott the tide UFO's into these things to how did that happen? Well, I originally thought that oh these must just be extraterrestrials.

"For kirtland. Rick Lewis in Woolwich. Hello. How are you today? Thank you, John. How are you? Birdie? Good now, how did you get this job? Well. I thought on length and love economic development. I love working on communities in helping develop and. And. Being to me, that's creativity. Some people are artists. This is my artistry is working in development. So I interviewed with three mayors of kirtland will awaken Wickliffe. Went through a few weeks of a radio interview. I'm sorry. Went through a phone interview called nerves. Person interview with offered the job. Okay. But you are also the former manager of the cuyahoga county airport cracks are you also violent. No, I haven't I actually ran putting the attention port authority for eighteen years. I lived on the islands year round. So there's a lot of happy people out ice fishing today and sitting in Shany's, keep them warm. And so we constructed three airports on the islands. We also development from building commercial ferry boat dock facilities jet express, three was one of our projects. And a lot of infrastructure. So that's where I really gained a lot of experience in what I do. Now. What have you found to be the greatest need of these three communities because they they didn't have an economic development director and all three need economic development or industry or business for them to continue to prosper. So each each I see similarities and considerable differences. Each city is unique. I took a look at because I have. Background in infrastructure development. I took a look at what what's in place today that we can build on our the foundational pieces. So is there is there infrastructure in place that businesses needs such as water sewer gas electric are they're our zoning processes is easy for business. Come into a community. Is it challenging just sitting? I went through a lot of assessing early on and. And I found willa wick is has a clear understanding of the needs of focusing on the lakefront they have this beautiful lake front. So there's a focus there, and they're not a large industrial base such as Wickliffe Willoughby liquid have lot more industry there. So take a look at what are their strengths in strengthening their strengths hurt. Land has. Has beautiful parks nature. Solid. Faith face between the kirtland temple the historic curtained, numerous churches, there lakeland community college is located there. So there's a Holden arboretum penitentiary Glen the farm park southern a lot of beautiful area, the topography is different there. So they have different needs than the, willow. Wicker Wickliffe does. And so. Taking a look at some other foundational pieces, for instance, only portion of city has to. There is water throughout gas route. So taking a look at what are they have what potentially might they need. And then be also taking a look at how to mindfully develop. So that. Me develop in harmony with with the nature of the city rather than trying to be something. We're not. Okay. Now, why should people in the community get involved in economic development? What how does it benefit them? It eases it eases financial financial burdens off of their shoulders, and they are able to it it spreads out the expenses of operating a city. So that amenities can be there for for residents. On on the island's tourism as they are industry. So because of the tourists there's more selections of of. Restaurants to that. There's more. Grocery stores. And and so that's also it rolls into any city that when you have a diverse base and allows for other entities or entities to grow up around it. So you'll get more restaurants or you'll get more. Shopping plazas might need to going to the grocery store. Take kirtland example. No, they are developing their own plan. And your course, you're on this plan. What what do you see happening here with kirtland hurt land is? Is I think a link canvas waiting or a partially blank canvas waiting to be painted. And so when I came in I looked at the what I've used different needs. But those are only through my eyes. So I think it's really important to pull in the community and have the community's input on how they would like to see the city developed because I'm one person, and I might see something. But if that's not in alignment with what the community wants than we have to be respectful of the fact in my like, I said mindful development. So that is in harmony with the nature of the city. Okay. Now you've been working with Moore. Doug Davidson is this what is his reaction dole knickers input in all those mayor Davidson is very supportive. He he would like to see development occur in the city, very very supportive. I brought it. The idea to him. And he said, yes. And so. He was unable to join council. President Kevin powder myself when we went nuts met with Dion Dmitro from link community colleges nonprofit in public sector sector center to discuss potentially facilitating the process, so we had a meeting and we came back in council and the mayor are. Both feel that this would be a really a benefit for the city. Okay. Now, you're working on a plan of and when would you expect this to be least partially completed? So the people can take a look at it. So what's happening is on Wednesday, February six at from six to nine PM. There's going to be an initial kickoff meeting and that will be held at lake link community colleges. Holden university's center. Mansion misdemeanor will be the solitaire. Meeting and through this process that will help identify key areas it'll help identify. They'll do what's called a swat analysis analysis, which are strengths weaknesses opportunities and threats. So the community members businesses. Even surrounding areas such as kirtland hills or. Wait help would have an interest in what happens in Portland because they're of the mutual aid that occurs between the cities. Anybody that feels? I have an interest in the development of more than welcome to attend. Okay. Now once this is Colonel talked about when you.
