Godawa on Nero, Rise of the Beast, Bible Prophecy: View From the Bunker Interview

Derek Gilbert was open to have me on View From the Bunker to talk about my new novel, Tyrant: Rise of the Beast.

This is particularly interesting because Derek and Skywatch do not share my End Times viewpoint, but they were kind enough to let me talk about my view and the novel!

Shocking revelations are guaranteed. You ain’t read nothing like this yet.

Kudos to you, Derek, and your open-mindedness!

A Clear Lens Podcast: I just can’t shut up about Silence or The Shack.

I love these guys. They love movies and Jesus, and we don’t always see eye to eye, but that’s what makes it such engaging discourse. We talked about how powerful the Shack was, but where it failed in a full picture of the Gospel. And with Silence, we dug deep. Some of them liked it more than I did, but after talking, we did agree on the most important thing of all, and that was quite profound…

Take a listen to us talk about The Shack and Silence on their podcast here.

Paranormal Podcast: DMT, Psychedelics, Religious Mysticism, and Paranormal Experiences

Join Dr. Mike Heiser, Pastor Doug Van DornDoug OvermyerBrian Godawa and Natalina as we discuss entheogens—psychedelic drugs that are known to cause “mystical states” of consciousness.

Our hosts discuss Rick Strassman’s work on DMT, but that is merely a subset of entheogen study. Current research in the fields of brain science, psychology, and religion are struggling to explain how entheogens and the experiences they cause should be understood. The dilemma of consciousness, more popularly known as the mind-body problem, is at the heart of the struggle. Do entheogens simply affect part of the brain and its chemistry triggering new states of consciousness from inside your head? Or do these drugs separate consciousness from the organ of the body we call the brain, verifying that consciousness is distinct from the brain? Are God and other supernal beings experienced by people under the effect of entheogens just a product of the brain, or are they entities to be experienced by unhindered consciousness?

Sleep Paralysis: Demons or Neuroscience? Peeranormal Podcast

peeranormal-logo-700x700

I cohosted this podcast with Dr. Mike HeiserNatalinaDoug Van DornDoug Overmyer and Trey Stricklin.

Sleep paralysis can be defined in several ways. In terms of the experiencer, it can be described as “a visitation by a malevolent creature which attacked its victims as they slept” (Cox). More clinically, sleep paralysis is understood as “a transient,conscious state of involuntary immobility occurring when falling asleep or upon wakening” (Cheyne, 2002). Research into sleep paralysis has produced compelling evidence that the phenomenon can be explained by brain chemistry and physiology in conjunction with REM sleep. But is that all there is to it?

Crop Circles: Aliens, Plasma Vortex or Human Creation?

peeranormal-logo-700x700

I was a cohost on this Peeranormal episode on Crop Circles.

Crop circles are well known — patterns that appear in fields of crops when certain areas of the field are compressed. Investigators have long noted how the stalks are bent uniformly, without visible damage. This episode of Peeranormal takes a look at some of the sparse academic peer-reviewed research on crop circles to discuss if they are man-made, created by an unknown natural force, or something paranormal.
