October Books

Nocturnes by Kazuo Ishiguro
I loved it. His writing is so clear and simple. He has amazing benevolent insights into human nature. This book is especially good for music lovers. Ishiguro became well-known with Remains of the Day, which became a movie. That book helped me understand Great Britain better.

Decipher by Stel Pavlou
What a waste of time; terrible writer from an immature person. However, the topic may be appealing to some (it was an international best seller). If you like stories about Atlantis, Aliens, symbols and physics, you may risk reading it.

Darwin’s Black Box by Michael Beher
That’s it! I am finally getting off the evolution bandwagon. Beher does a great job explaining the science behind the objections to evolution. Darwin did not know much about cells when he wrote. NeoDarwinians need to read this book if they are to continue supporting the old bigot.

America’s Secret Destiny by Robert Hieronimus
Not worth reading. I can tell you about the one pearl in this one: Our Founding Fathers were inspired by the writings of John Locke and Jean Jacques Rousseau, who in turn got their revolutionary ideas about democracy from the Iroquois in the Northeastern USA and Quebec province. A federation of 6 Native American tribes was firmly established, with equal rights for all, including women, when the white man came to America. In fact, they had to be “Americanized” to survive.

Hieronimus also talks about the Great Seal of the USA, dispelling a lot of the conspiracy theories surrounding it.

Spontaneous Evolution by Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman
A MUST read. Lipton continues where he left off in Biology of Belief. He teams up with “Swami Beyondanada” to lighten up the heavy nature of the topic. Basically, they join the chorus of people getting off the Darwin bandwagon by showing how stress can cause spontaneous mutations. According to them, and many others, humans are about to take another leap in the evolutionary journey. This time, I hope, we will be able to mimic our body’s cells’ approach to living; all 50 trillion of them have learned to live in harmony, not in competition. “Survival of the fittest” got us in the terrible mess we are in. We need a more feminine-cooperative approach if we are going to make it.
