    Bill, do you think that children have a natural affinity for periods of history that they may actually sense are past lives for them - and therefore familiar?

    For instance, when I was a child I had a very strong affinity for everything to do with the pioneers moving westward in the US (mid to late, 1800s, I guess), and I also had an affinity for part of the Medieval era, or the years approx. 980 to 1050.

    I was exposed to other history, such as the Greeks, Romans, French Revolution, etc., but no resonance with those. I've seen this in other children, too.
    My best simple answer to the excellent question is Yes, absolutely.

    Hi Bill, just happened to read your “reincarnation story number 3” that you’ve called failure and first attempt to incarnate in the West.
    Should I have read it earlier, I don’t know, somehow I missed it.

    It’s a shocking reminder of my childhood and youth hood and the way I experienced my human family. Unlike you I’ve survived by leaving for India when I was 19.
    I’d not have survived in “their environment”, including the acedemic drill. It was depressive.
    Similar to you I wowed to myself never to get married or become a mother after witnessing what are these, otherwise decent people capable of , causing torture and emotional damage , i wowed to take care of my mother after my father failed to do so when she became seriously ill the promise of which I have fulfilled.

    I feel like living many lives in one. Not sure if all of them can be resolved or brought to fulfilment.

    My wish to find “family” on Earth always seems to fail on the same girdle. There’s great love but there’s also, a level of enstrangement.
    Even when I came close to undoing the trigger in me and in the other person ,
    I was unable to do that.

    Now( dear reader) , which is real and which is not ? Even as higher spiritual Entitues I feel, we live from Love, for the Love of Life itself , we need equals but they are not easy to encounter.

    But if you’re spiritually accomplished Entity, it’s very difficult or nearly impossible to find others. Is it even possible above certain altitude ?

    Sorry if that’s not a clear question but thanks if you wish share some thoughts on that topic.
    My best answer here is that as best I know, anyone newly arriving in our [so-called!] 'civilized west' — either from a very different culture, or from another planetary society — often has a great deal of trouble for a few lifetimes until they're eventually able to adjust.

    It's frequently a lot more difficult and challenging, and sometimes even traumatic, than they ever anticipate when it seemed like a good idea at the time.

    (This isn't just my own notion, btw. I've heard this from many other people, including experienced regression therapists.)

    Dear Bill, you’re right : human life is mind blowing I often reject the idea of wanting to spend here “many life times”. I found the experience of childhood generally humiliating and traumatic for the way human adults look upon children , in common. I think it would not be different at “other people”.
    That said I was not unhappy as kid. As awakened teenager yes ..but much later and when I looked back I thought no I don’t want to do this again.

    Although human minds are fascinating object of exploration there seems to be algorithm to them, that is number of algorithms scattered over the globe.
    One has to be careful with some of them no matter how special they’re because some are broken algorithms, showing off fabulous patterns that do not lead to completion.

    How many complete - enlightened - souls are there on the Planet at one time,
    in your estimate ?


    Thank you

    Well, 'complete' and 'enlightened' are very subjective descriptions, I'd suggest. Meaning, it's not all that easy to measure and quantify that.

    Very few, for sure. As a wild, unverifiable guess, I'd say maybe a few thousand. Out of 7.2 billion people, that might like one for every few million others. At the very best, it might be one for every several hundred thousand.

    But is that enough to make a real difference? I'd say it depends what they do with their state of being. Sitting wisely and benignly on a cloud won't help (much). But there definitely are things that advanced souls can do which really can help clear up all the mess. Some will be doing just that, if their life's purpose is to help in that way.

    Yes, one thing that really makes a difference is the freeing of malevolent, mischievous, or (sometimes) insanely destructive entities, that really can have a huge accumulative effect on many people, situations and incidents all over the world.

    People understandably tend to think of an 'entity' as something small but annoying, like a fly in the room. But some of them can be extremely ancient, large and powerful, and many reading this will know that they're periodically summoned and set to work by black magic practitioners.

    So 'white magic', of a kind, is needed to free and dispel all these influences. It's an enormous job, because the influences on Planet Earth are ancient, manifold, and often very heavy. But I do know a few people who do this routinely. I had one friend who was supremely and extraordinarily talented, who I mentioned in my post #342 here. I wrote:

    ~~~
    There are two people who had a very significant effect on me and my life. Both were most remarkable people with astonishing abilities, totally dedicated to helping others, and never once seeking any publicity. Neither of them have a website, or any social media platform. Neither of them have any ego of any kind.

    If one's a genuinely great being, one doesn't have to have all that stuff.
    Very great beings often work very quietly and silently. And there are quite a few of them.

    I've met some of them, as well. One of them was a true polymath: a healer, a medical technician, an engineer, built three houses single-handed, an artist, an author, and a spiritual miracle-worker. He was the first person I ever met who was able to 'wiggle his nose' — a reference to Samantha in the lovely old TV series Bewitched — and create effects on the other side of the world the next day that he and I would then hear about on the news. He even ended a war once, and I was right there when it happened. That's totally true, but I'd definitely not expect anyone to believe it.

    He and I worked closely together in the early 1990s, in England, and one of the things I'm most proud of in my whole life was that I played a part myself in him rediscovering and re-activating his personal power as what many would describe as a kind of Gandalf-level master wizard. He never saw himself that way, but that was what he was. We worked as a strong team for a couple years, my own role being kind of like the guy in the corner of the ring who holds the towel. (He's not in the fight himself, but plays a valuable support role between the bruising rounds.)

    Bill, what are your thoughts on Estulin's latest please? Thanks!

    DANIEL ESTULIN – BACK TRUMP OR WORLD LOSES
    January 23, 2019


    Alexandra's comments: https://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/dan...r-world-loses/

    "Daniel Estulin joins Greg Hunter for a blockbuster interview about the realpolitik that informs the strange behavior of politicians on the world stage.

    He reminds viewers that he spent 24 years in Russian military counterintelligence and that he’s also a Doctor of Conceptual Intelligence, trained to “create models that define the future of humanity…at least one or two generations in advance…” In short, he is not a conspiracy theorist.

    He explains that, like most of the world, the United States is controlled by the Liberal banking financiers, which is the domain of Wall Street, Washington’s bureaucracy, the intelligence agencies, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, the Rockefeller crowd, the Soroses, the Mainstream Media, the London School of Economics, the Wharton School of Business, the big Think Tanks, the big foundations, the rating agencies; in short, the people who’ve controlled the world for the past three generations, since 1944.

    All of the above are part of this Liberal banking order – not just in the US but globally. Trump’s job, as the representative of an alternative, isolationist, industrial group is to dismantle this power structure. This is not a battle between the Republicans or the Democrats…it’s against the current global financial model.

    “In 2008, the global elite circles…reached an agreement to hand over the power of the emission of the US dollar to the global elite, via the Bank for International Settlements, which is the central bank of central banks…The only thing they needed was for Obama to sign off on this deal. Nobody knows about this but Obama decided he’s not gonna do that; he’s not gonna let the global elite circles control the emission of the US dollar.”

    My own source tells me this was the moment the Bush-Clinton crime family attempted to usurp the power of the central bankers for themselves, a crime for which they will not be forgiven by Basel.

    Estulin continues, “What we’re seeing right now is the fight…for the control of emission of US dollar,” and Trump is the enemy [of the Liberal banking order]. “That’s why you have all the screaming and yelling in the media.”

    Russia is in a similar position. “Russia’s economic financial policy is written in the offices of International Monetary Fund…” Russia’s equivalent to the US Federal Reserve’s Jerome Powell is Elvira Nabiullina, the Director of the Russian Central Bank. Estulin says Nabiullina has no responsibility to Russia. “She works directly for Christine Lagarde, the General Director of International Monetary Fund…You are not allowed to make investments in rubles in Russia. You can only do it in dollars, just to give you an idea who controls Russia’s economy!

    “If Putin decided to fire [Elvira] Nabiullina…and replaced her with somebody who is a patriot, immediately, the International Monetary Fund and the ratings agencies would emit a report that would say, ‘According to our best practices and knowledge, the person who is running Russia’s Central Bank is absolutely incompetent,’ and they’d lower Russia’s credit to junk and because private corporations cannot have a higher credit rating than the government itself, every Russian company’s credit rating will be lowered to junk, which means Russian economy would collapse in a matter of hours, which is why until the Liberal banking financier global order is not dismantled, Putin has his hands tied – and the same with Trump – and that’s what we’re seeing right now, globally…

    “You have a civil war in the United States. There is the Liberal banking financiers’ United States; the parasites, who play with numbers, don’t produce anything at all and then you have the the alternative group, the people who put in Donald Trump…the isolationists and industrialists.

    Estulin says there are two different ways out of this crisis:

    “1. Global Thermonuclear War…wars write off debts and responsibilities. You have a four…quadrillion-dollar global debt…It’s a four and fifteen zeros. There’s absolutely no way you can pay that off, ever. But Wars can write that off.” In this scenario, half of the world’s population or more would be killed. China, with over a billion people would survive. Russia, the country with the biggest territory would survive but “The United States will not survive. Europe will not survive. Latin America, nobody knows where that is and Africa is what it is. So, that’s one of the ways out of the crisis. Another way out of the crisis is the change from the Atlanticism to the:

    “2. Pacific area of influence…the Rockefellers lost in 2012 against the Rothschilds. The Rockefellers are the bankers, the percentages and the Rothschilds are the changers…Changers, what does that mean? it means separating the world into regional territories…the dismantling of countries…and creating regional economic blocs…

    The Bretton-Woods global economic model is collapsing. In London, Brexit was developed to avoid being caught up in that. Estulin says, “Their plan was to create a separate economic region with the Golden Dinar for them and for the Arab world” and Israel as a nation-state was to be sacrificed. “Kissinger said it, way back in 2012 and it was published in New York Post, that Israel, in ten years was going to disappear. Jacob Rothschild, somebody who’s very well-informed said the same thing.

    “In that plan, you need to get rid of all of the leaders in the northern region of Africa. We’ve been there for 30 years; Bouteflika in Algiers, Gaddafi in Libya, Mubarak in Egypt, etc. and thus, you have the Arab Spring. The second part, you gotta get rid of Turkey, because Turkey has dibs, through the Ottoman Empire, on some of the same Arab countries that England, the British Empire wanted to incorporate into the new regions – they did that, okay because Turkey is not allowed into the European Union and a third step, again as I said, get rid of Israel by joining forces.

    “Now the whole thing was already prepared. The only thing that was missing was for Hillary Clinton to become President of United States and she was all for it – but she lost. Trump wasn’t gonna go for it and thus, the Empire created Plan B – and Plan B and I explained in my book, is Macron and France…

    “We’re seeing the end of the Bretton Woods, we’re seeing the end of the petrodollar model, because Trump was elected President and his mandate, from the people behind him was to dismantle the petrodollar; dismantle that and get rid of the World Trade Organization – and what we see Trump doing is going up against the International Monetary Fund, he’s going against World Bank, the G7. They are the enemies of Trump and of the people behind him because they represent Liberal banking financial model…

    “It has nothing to do with ideologies. It has nothing to do with Donald Trump being an unpalatable president, who’s bringing disrepute to the United States – as if the Mainstream Media ever cared about the United States as an entity. It’s about control of the emission center because the model is now dead. They need an alternative model and so they’re looking at, just to summarize, either:

    “Global thermonuclear war [or the separation of the world into economic regions] – and that’s why you see all that stuff in the Middle East again, what’s Trump doing in Afghanistan? What’s he doing in Syria? He’s done something that Putin hasn’t been able to do. He’s extricating himself out of that mess, because he understands that anytime, this thing can explode…

    “Wars write off debts and responsibilities, which is why we’re seeing all this maneuvering. We don’t know who is going to win. We don’t know the end of the story. What we do know is why all this stuff is going on…

    “The easiest thing for Trump to have done when he became President was to push the interest rates to four, five, six percent. That would have collapsed the entire global order, which are the enemies of Donald Trump but then, it’s like we have a table and you cut two legs off the table collapses but to make sure the table doesn’t collapse, you need to prop it up somehow, which means Trump would have needed to come up with an alternative model…

    “You asked me about gold. We’re looking at a changing of the guard from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from petrodollar to ounces, physical ounces of gold, which is what the Chinese have a lot of.

    So, the new economic model, again, the separation of regions, Make America Great Again is…the United States shutting the door, saying to the rest of the world, ‘Go to Hell.'”

    Greg Hunter: “Gold’s gonna be an important component of whatever world we have; gold, silver, precious metals.”

    Daniel Estulin: “It’ll be a very important component, now what needs to happen is the Chinese and the Russians can work together but not right now because today’s Russia is [dominated by the] Liberal banking financier crowd…The only way that the Russians the Chinese can actually work together if you get rid of Liberal [financiers]…”

    Greg Hunter: “What does a little guy do? What does the guy listening to this interview, saying, ‘What should I do? Do you plan on a collapse? Do you plan on a war? Do you plan on a hyperinflation? Do you plan on a new dollar?…What does the guy watching this do?

    Daniel Estulin: “One thing you need to understand is you’ve got a back Trump…our only way out of this is to make sure that Donald Trump actually stays President of the United States, because the entire welfare of Russia and everywhere else depends on the non-Liberal crowd winning.

    “Second point, make sure you have physical gold and silver. Make sure you don’t have paper gold, because when the markets go ‘poof’, that thing is going to disappear. Make sure you understand that all the noise you hear in the mainstream media, it’s what it is, it’s noise and it doesn’t matter…this latest stuff, with some kids in Catholic school or talk about some silly football game or talking about what Trump did or said, whether he picked his nose at a birthday party – it’s all nonsense – you’ve got a look at a bigger picture…

    The model which has been working since 1944, Bretton Woods; based on infinite growth is dead. Either we come up with a new model or we go to Hell.

    Greg Hunter: Daniel Estulin, the author best-selling multiple international best-selling author of his latest book, In the Shadows of a President. Daniel, thanks for coming on from Toronto, thank you so much."

    Hi Bill,

    I am a long time follower. Thank you very much for everything you have done and still do to keep us informed and sane.

    I wanted to know your thoughts on Daniel Estulin and his work. Do you think he still remains russian intelligence operative?
    What are your thoughts on the quality of his material and is it coming directly from Lubyanka/Kremlin?

    Thank you so much.

    Philipp V.
    I really do appreciate the question, which deserves a much better answer than I'm able to give. All I really know about him is what most do — that he's a long-time student of and reporter on the Bilderberg Group. What his deeper personal agenda(s), allegiance, or history might be, I truly don't know.
    Each breath a gift...

    Bill, what are your thoughts on Estulin's latest please? Thanks!

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=mbMnsNuXhJo
    Well, the hour-long interview goes pretty deep and fast down the geopolitical rabbithole. All I can really say is that I'd fully agree with this from Estulin:
    Quote Our only way out of this is to make sure that Donald Trump actually stays President of the United States, because the entire welfare of Russia and everywhere else depends on the non-Liberal crowd winning.
    Personally, my pro-Trump stance has always been an anti-Hillary one. If Hillary had been elected, the world would be in extremely serious crisis, as would all our freedoms — even more so than at the moment.

    This has been written a thousand times on the Avalon forum alone, but the very fact that the globalists AND the controlled media worldwide are so vehemently against Trump shows that he's a dangerous threat (or at least a significantly road-blocking impediment) to their agenda.

    In talking with people who have recovered memories of past lives, I noticed that at least in some cases people tend to stay with the religion that is familiar to them when reincarnating.

    Have you noticed this phenomenon as well?

    Hey Bill,

    Thanks for the thread.

    I've been away from the forum for while and was surprised to see you say on this thread that Ilie the mod had done a runner! Could you provide any update on that? Has he been in touch with anyone since or has he just vanished without trace? Seems very bizarre.

    Have you been to Vilcabamba or ever lived there for any length of time before? If yes, how does it compare with where you are living now?

    Thanks

    I'd say that familiarity when reincarnating seems to be an attraction for many: familiar culture, language, climate, lifestyle (in general), level of affluence or power, social customs, and often religion. (And usually, a familiar planet that they already know well. )

    But maybe not for everyone. I've heard from some folks that they really do quite enjoy ringing the changes, gathering a wide variety of different experiences and maybe having a more interesting and/or challenging (and sometimes difficult!) time.

    Yes, bizarre. And yes, he "did a runner and vanished without trace", to use all your words — which are accurate. He was a friend of us all, and in 8 years working closely together there'd never been a cross word, with anyone. Not one tiniest stress point or disagreement.

    We all really liked and respected him, greatly appreciating his skill and expertise. He was a genuinely nice guy, very bright and very pleasant. We all enjoyed seeing his photos of his new house and wife when he shared them with us.

    I e-mailed him twice, not at all unpleasantly, asking him to please explain what on earth happened. He never replied.

    Yes, I was in Vilcabamba for 9 months when I first arrived in Ecuador. It's NOT a good place to be, and bad things happen to people there. Besides many failed relationships and failed projects, there's a lot of crime, some of it serious. There have been sex crimes and rapes, numerous violent burglaries, and one Canadian realtor was even beheaded in his office after a disagreement with some locals.

    There's a lot to say about this. But as in other parts of the world, the basic problem is a migration issue, leaving the indigenous people angry, offended, powerless, and in some cases violently vengeful.

    The gringos have literally taken over the place, which was at once time a traditional center of healing. One entire sacred valley was bought up by an American expat property developer and is now accessible only through a gated entrance with armed guards. The locals have no access, because it's no longer theirs. Land and house prices have become inflated so much that locals can no longer afford to live there as their forefathers had for generations.

    So, what's now happened is that local black magic shamans have declared an invisible war of attrition on the invaders, which they see as just more white, arrogant, superior Conquistadores. This is why so many bad things happen.

    I had some interesting experience of uncovering this, and even talked to one good shaman who'd escaped with his life after a serious illness who said he'd found, to his cost, that he wasn't powerful enough to go up against the others. I have no intention of ever going near the place again.

    Hi Bill, I hope life is being kind to you and you are safe and well. What are your thoughts on Intelligent Design? It's mind blowing when we look around us and see, hear and feel repeating and beautiful patterns and sequences in everything, everywhere, that are mathematically perfect (not that I understand Maths very well!). It's so clever and I don't know about you, but I find it comforting - to me, its like confirmation that there is absolutely good in the world. No matter how bad things get with all the madness everywhere, Intelligent Design carries on providing for us - it feels like an inbuilt structure that can support and nurture us if we care to give it our attention and respect. What do you think this is about? Who or what created this? Do you think there's any human being alive on this planet right now who knows for sure the answer? Could it be the case that its a secret we're NEVER meant to know (whether it be the PTB denying us the wisdom or the protection of the Intelligent design itself?) Is it always going to be impossible to know, no matter how spiritually evolved we become? How might a non religious person explain intelligent design? Do you think if humans discovered the answer, some would manipulate it for their evil gain or do you think the knowledge itself would be enough to destroy evil intentions and bring out love and inspiration? Perhaps part of Intelligent Design is that we won't ever know in this realm of existence - ignorance its a protection barrier that it puts in place to preserve itself. Do you think its the same force throughout zillions of years of existence, or do you think it replaces itself over time? Does our behaviour and thoughts affect it in any way? One last thing, (sorry for bombarding you here), what do you think would happen to Intelligent Design, say, if there was a nuclear explosion/attack? Would it be be destroyed, or do you think its carries its own blueprint to begin again once the conditions are favorable? Thank you for your patience Bill. xxx

    Thanks for the reply Bill.

    That's Ilie gone for good by the sounds of it. If you wanna leave then fair enough, but the lack of courtesy involved suggests to me that there was a considerable amount of shame/guilt attached to his reasons for wanting to leave, which he didn't want to have to explain to anyone.

    I wasn't expecting that scathing review of Vilcabamba!

    "...what's now happened is that local black magic shamans have declared an invisible war of attrition on the invaders"

    That's that place crossed off my list. Alcohol, poor locals, rich expats, prostitutes and black magic. I'll leave them to it. I had only heard good things about it previously when I looked into it about a decade ago, and have been meaning to visit since, mainly because of the high quality water and the abundance of cheap organic produce. Wasn't Brian O' Leary based there before he died? I've been to over 60 countries now and I keep hearing over and over again from long term expats in places I visit that the glory days of the 1980's and 90's are now well and truly over with the influx of money and vice.

    Have you spent much time exploring Egypt?

    Although I have not had contact in quite a while, Ilie is my friend on faceboog, and he posted something just a few hours ago. (His last name is "Pandia", not "Panda.")

    but, but, but... wait... Ilie is my friend? But I'm Bill's friend... How could I? Well, I'm not going to write a long story here, but Ilie was already accepted as family to me years ago. At the risk of sounding LARPy, a handful of people came together to perform the behind-the-scenes technical functions and moderation functions of what we all believed/believe to be the Internet oasis of truth, Project Avalon. The forum has undergone attacks of various sorts, from people that don't want the truth exposed. We were like soldiers in a foxhole together. We became friends, family even. We exchanged contact information so that in case the Internet went down, giant false flag or chemical/biological attack, drastic Earth and sun changes, world war 4, whatever... happened, we all offered to each other to do whatever we could to help each other.

    Imagine if I had a little brother that screamed "I hate you!" to my parents and stomped away. Is he still my brother, even though he is acting like an asshole? Should I 'disown' him?

    If you know Ilie, even just a little bit, through his public postings on Wade Frazier's 'A Healed Planet' thread and his posts reflecting his blossoming spirituality, then you already know that Ilie is "one of the good guys." Can "one of the good guys" f**k up? Anyone have a mirror I can borrow?

    I disagree with Ilie's actions (he basically deleted himself and Inelia Benz from the Project Avalon's database), but I am a programmer with a lot of database experience, and I can tell you that it is quite obvious to me that Ilie used "surgical precision" to not harm the forum, but just to disappear himself and his (I believe) primary spiritual teacher, Inelia, from the forum (I suspect because he felt that she was being embarrassed here.) If Ilie's aim had been the destruction of the forum, trust me, as the database administrator, he certainly could have, and all the forum backups as well.

    I don't and you (dear reader) don't know what was in Ilie's heart and mind when he performed his actions. Maybe someday he will tell us. Guessing that Ilie turned evil would be a poor guess. And, like the old guy being thrown onto the cart full of black plague corpses in Monty Python's Holy Grail, Ilie is "not dead yet."

    hi Bill, you mentioned once that you were contacted by a senior member of the intelligence community after you had attempted contact with one of the alleged Serpo astronauts...

    Hi there, many many thanks, and what a wonderful cluster of questions. I lost count of the number in that post!

    I'm offline here (please see this personal update post), so this might be just an interim answer.

    I'd argue, and have done for years, that for anyone who truly takes a very close look, Intelligent Design -- of some kind -- seems simply self-evident.

    Here are just two tiny, tiny examples that came to mind very recently.

    1) I went for a walk with my dog the other day, and watched her instinctively back-scrape the dust and dirt with her paws over where she'd just peed on the trail.

    How is that a Darwinian survival-of-the-fittest characteristic? It's not. No way does that aid the survival of a species. Not is it learned, or learned and then somehow passed on genetically (as per the Lamarckian model, which I do think has merit. See this very interesting thread, called Lamarckism).

    It's a design feature. It's not very effective (Mara the doesn't aim very well! ), but it's like someone's light afterthought when designing doggie behavior.

    2) Here's another. Not being Australian, I found myself looking up all about WOMBATS the other day. And I bet all the non-Aussies here never knew this. Maybe not even all Australians do.

    Wombats are marsupials, and raise their baby young in their pouch like kangaroos. But they're also burrowing mammals, UNlike kangaroos. So -- wait for this -- their pouches face backwards, so they don't get filled up with dirt, like a scoop.

    Again, there's no way that could possibly have been a survival characteristic, with random genetic changes being rewarded by survival to breeding age if beneficial. Just think about that, as well. The odds of a random change of a wombat's pouch being upside down (which never happens randomly to kangaroos or any other marsupial) are tiny.

    For an entire species to develop this totally useful but highly strange anomaly is impossible.

    And that's not behavior, so it's not a matter of learning. Again, it's a design feature that's 100% functional. And I'd argue it's a very obvious one.
    There are 1001 more examples. Maybe 1,000,001. No time or space to list them all here. It'd need a VERY big book.

    So, who's the designer? Well, I've always joked that the entire Australian ecosystem looks like someone's science experiment. (The student either flunked out, or got a distinction, when they came up with the Platypus.)

    Not 'God'. It's not necessary to bring Him into the picture. Far more likely ET intervention... 100% seriously. If Planet Earth is at least in part a giant wildlife park, and experimental bio-repository, then that explains at least some of the ETs' interest in us.

    And if we're part of the experiment as well, and our half of the experiment is steadfastly destroying the other half, then that means even MORE interest from the experimenters.

    Darwinian natural selection probably has a real but very minor role. Logic suggests it does have a small part to play. And Lamarkism (the inheritance of acquired or learned characteristics) may play a larger, but still small part. It does seem to me totally evident that so much in the natural world is impeccably, ingeniously functional in ways that could NEVER have developed accidentally, even over vast tracts of time.

    Bill, do you vote? Or have you or did you? Depending upon what country you had or have citizenship in? If so, why? If not, why?

    I so appreciate who you are and what you do. It's so valuable.

    Love,

    Val

    ... and all the forum backups as well.
    Some of the backups ... but certainly not all. I have the best, most complete, most current, backups.
