I was a cohost on this Peeranormal episode, about Bible codes. Along with Michael Heiser, Doug Overmyer, Doug Van Dorn and Trey Stricklin.
Back in mid-nineties a peer-reviewed article was published that sought to legitimize the idea that the Hebrew text of Genesis encrypted meaningful information about modern persons and events. Their method for detecting the presumed encrypted knowledge was known as equidistant letter sequencing (ELS).This article (Witztum, Rips, and Rosenberg) became a reference point for journalist Michael Drosnin, who wrote the bestselling book, The Bible Code, shortly thereafter. Subsequent to the success of Drosnin’s book, Bible-code research expanded to the full Torah and beyond, to the rest of the Hebrew Bible. In this episode we ask whether there is such a thing as ELS Bible codes. Have other statisticians and biblical scholars agreed with Witztum, Rips, and Rosenberg, or are there serious problems with the method and its assumptions?

Are zombies real or just something Hollywood is into nowadays? If you’ve ever seen the movie The Serpent and the Rainbow, you know the question is legitimate. That movie was based on a book by Wade Davis, who earned his PhD in part on the basis of his research into “zombification” in Haiti. Davis and others theorize that zombies are real, and that they are the result of specific drugs given to individuals against their will that produce zombie-like states and behavior.
The modern drug Flakka is a current, frightening example. Other researchers disagree, noting that zombie lore is very old and encompasses notions that sound a lot like demonization and possession.
This episode of PEERANORMAL explores the topic just in time for Halloween.

I was a cohost on the Peeranormal podcast about Bigfoot DNA.
Back in 2012 the world heard that Bigfoot DNA had been isolated and genetically tested under controlled laboratory conditions. Those involved claimed that the testing had proven the existence of Bigfoot (aka, Sasquatch), and that the creature was a hybrid between modern homo sapiens and an unknown primate species.In a short time, the story unraveled and the research was scrutinized by experts revealing a number of flaws. But this was not the only attempt at producing genetic evidence for Bigfoot. There were earlier and subsequent tests. Is there genuine evidence for Bigfoot DNA?

The novel series Chronicles of the Nephilim is sometimes edgy and shocking, but no more than the Bible is.
I explained to Matt Faraci how I integrated imagination and fiction with theology in my Biblical novels while seeking to maintain an honorable fidelity to the holy Scriptures.
Find out why many of my fans say that these novels have brought to life the Scriptural narrative in a way that has not been done before for them.
Hear why this series has dominated the Top 20 in Biblical Fiction for years on Amazon.com.

I was a co-host for this podcast with Michael Heiser, Doug van Dorn, Doug Overmyer and a doctor with blood background.
The idea that people with Rh-Negative blood indicates alien or nephilim ancestry is on the rise in fringe internet communities and websites. In this episode our panel is joined by someone with medical training (MD) who is familiar with blood typing and the genetics behind Rh-negative blood. The episode discusses the nature of Rh-negative blood, its genetic explanation, and speculations about other traits associated with Rh-negative blood.

Parker J Cole is an open-minded host willing to explore ideas that challenge the mainstream.
Well, my ideas challenge the mainstream Bible Prophecy Industrial Complex.
You’ll love this show. We talk about the failure of the predictions of modern Bible prophecy pundits, and my own journey of waking up to a new viewpoint of the end times, the fallacious assumptions of Christians with other viewpoints, and how we have missed the meaning of so much of Revelation because we interpret it through modern eyes instead of the eyes of ancient Jews who wrote the New Testament. I talk about the corruption of prophecy interpretation from literalism.

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!

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.
Join Dr. Mike Heiser, Pastor Doug Van Dorn, Doug Overmyer, Brian 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 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?
