~Why Does the World Exist - An Existential Detective Story~ by Jim Holt
 
It starts out slow and dry but by page 14 it starts
to roll... and at page 38, Jim Holt is taking you off
and running right out of the box.
It's a New York Times Best Seller
full of " a ha "moments; subtle and brilliant.
Enjoy!

Hello Wolfdog -
Oh... he hasn't figured it out. He's just stumbled across
some interesting notions along the way to trying to figure it out.
i would say this is a book of hints at best... that invites the mind
to open and to expand to glean some very thought-provoking
possibilities. Ha!

Shirley! Wherever you are! You'll love this book!

Love,
Chi

Just finished reading Exo-Vaticana writtenby Chris Putnam and Thomas Horn.

Many here may find it intriguing to say the least.Some very devout Christians and especially Catholics will possibly find the contents rather disturbing.

Apparently, there is evidence that the Vatican plans for the arrival of an alien god ... they are planning to connect with "an alien savior"! Also, some Vatican Library secret files about the alien presence are discussed, as well as connections with Pope prophecies and the misleading Fatima incident, and the truth about it.

Their Arizona astronomy project and their top astronomer is interviewed. These investigative journalists have presented a bold work, which will make you wonder again about our origins......well, some of you anyway! lol

I am interested in knowing what you think about this book.
Best to you,
Wolfdog
