Scientists thing they may have discovered “Galaxy X,” a secret dark matter formation on the edge of our galaxy. That said, a contrasting (and perhaps conflicting) story examines the possibility that there may never have been a “big bang”, from which our universe emerged at the dawn of all time as we know it. Hence, proponents believe there may also be no need for dark matter either… so what’s the real scoop, and how can we reconcile the varieties of the scientific basis for our universe as we know it?

We also spend a bit of time examining claims that, interestingly, appear around this time every year: that the televised Grammy Awards ceremonies had actually bee (you guessed it)! an Illuminati mass-ritual. Katy Perry weighs in… which doesn’t deter her from telling us that she actually does believe in aliens… hey, we’re liking her more and more!

Shifting gears a bit in hour two, on the heels of a tragic–but inspiring–story of a man who, after learning his wife had been devoured by a crocodile, went to the village blacksmith and asked him to forge a spear for him, which he used to slay the four-meter-long beast. This story sounds remarkably similar to the ancient legend, involving the Christian Saint George, and a famous dragon he destroyed in saving a beautiful princess… could it be that the stuff of myth and legend are indeed sometimes inspired by real life?

  1. Regarding your mention of Neil DeGrasse Tyson and his and Hawkings remarks that philosophy is dead…Do these guys not realize, brilliant as they supposedly are, that these statements themselves are in fact statements of philosophy? Has it not occurred to them that everything anybody ever does that is at all deliberate, and every decision a person makes or reaction they have, all of it is an expression of their personal philosophy of life? These days it is more popular to call it a world view, but it is the same thing by a different name. Philosophy is inescapable. Hell, the scientific method itself, to which thes fellows have devoted their lives, is simply a philosophical approach to the analysis of phenomena of all kinds. To say philosophy is dead is like sawing off the branch on which you are standing. If ànything, science in fact depends on philosophy, because the practice of it is built upon a philosophy that there are truths to be found out and that those thruths are worth finding out. And there must be developed a reason why these things are worth discovering, which requires the working out of a philosophical model to govern this reasoning and the conduct that is born of it. Is the reason for finding out these truths to benefit mankind? Well, why is benefiting mankind worthwhile? There must be laid down a philosophical basis for this thinking as well. All of life is philosophy. To say philosophy is dead or no longer worthwhile is to practice, and demonstrate the vitality of, the very thing one is claiming has ceased to be of any value. Well, that was wordy enough, sorry about that. Thanks for what you do, guys.
