    A subcommittee of the Kansas Board of Education holds hearings on whether the state's science curriculum should permit alternate theories to be taught alongside evolution. During the first three days of hearings, proponents of intelligent design present their views. They are represented by a retired lawyer, John Calvert, who heads the Intelligent Design Network of Shawnee Mission, Kansas.

    Sue says: "A must listen . . ."
    "Amazing, enlightening & full of rational inquiry"
    Overall

    This is the most interesting audio I have heard in a long time! The hearings contain many PhD level scientists, doctors, biologists, teachers, philosophers that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that there are gaping holes in the theory of evolution.

    The lawyer defending the side of evolution does not dispute one single fact... he simply degrades and belittles the witnesses. If anything, regardless of your opinion, there is an amazing wealth of rational inquiry and scientific testimony.

    There may be debate over the origin of man, but after listening to these testimonies, there in no debate over the faltering, weak and withering theory of Darwin's evolution.

  • One God, Three Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, Islam [Portable Professor]

    The covenant that God made with the patriarch Abraham forms the basis of the three religions that today enjoy the largest followings in the world: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Despite the many common bonds among them, however, the Abrahamic religions have had an extremely complicated relationship, frequently defined by conflict, over the course of millennia of coexistence.

    David says: "No Faith Needed"
    "One Professor, No Faith"
    Overall

    Peters presents a well-researched lecture of these religions, but it's from the perspective of an outsider. I listened to more than 4 hours of this audiobook, mostly due to Peter's interesting and enjoyable presentation style, but the content is so "objective" that you'd think he wasn't talking about the "faiths".

    I would be surprised to hear that F.E. Peters was a man of faith... His snyde and arrogant analysis of each of the world religions leaves you wondering why anyone would embrace one of these religions. He jokes about the Jewish concept of God's justice is that your children will need braces. He says that Jesus was a failure until his death. He equates all of Christianity to Catholicism. It's no wonder that so many people lose their faith after attending university... people of no faith are teaching about faith.

    In Mozart's Brain and the Fighter Pilot, eminent neuropsychiatrist and best-selling author Richard Restak, M.D., combines the latest research in neurology and psychology to show us how to get our brain up to speed for managing every aspect of our busy lives.

    Glenn E. Graham says: "Brain exercises for you"
    "Not bad for a monkey"
    Overall

    I was absolutely engaged in this audio book (until the end). Restak convinced me of the incredible biology of the brain, the hope for an agile mind in old age and a method to stay mentally young. Then, near the end of the book, Restak divulges his evolution-based philosophy that, to me, removes all the awe for the body of this book. With all the holes in the theory of evolution, I am left wondering how a man that is so obviously and otherwise brilliant, can allow for this intellectual perspective.

    From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work - and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen's entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    "Highly Recommended"
    Overall

    The information contained tips and tricks that I immediately put into practice with fabulous results. I am always looking for better time management systems, and GTD addressed the issue of "knowledge work" in a way that no other has done. I also bought the Outlook Plug In from his website to help manage my In Box... It works. Buy this auidobook and change your life.
