The Evolution of Faith

Magi Mike is the web name of Mike Magee (Dr M D Magee) author of three books published by AskWhy! Publications, the extensive website of which can be found easily with a web search of the names M D Magee and AskWhy. Most of the points raised on this blog Mike treats in much more detail at the AW website, where details of the three books can also be found. There is a custom search box on nearly every page.

  1. Who Lies Sleeping?
  2. The Mystery of Barabbas
  3. The Hidden Jesus

Another author has used the same title as The Hidden Jesus, so do not mistake it for this one by Michaerl D Magee.

  1. Very helpful and sincere man who has created a genuine alternative description of many religious concepts that free the reader to think for themselves especially if religious.

  2. Reason v religion. As much as it seems to be talking about something of interest the terms are too vague to be of any real use in determining anything. Religion uses among other htings reason as much as reason uses religion among other things. As for fanaticism that is not confined to religion either. When you try to distinguish say even the structure of science from the structure of religious knowledge even that is not conclusive because they are both intensely human creations. The clearest contrast is in the methodologies and areas of interest, but then some say that these areas are mutually exclusive. Each individual makes up their own mind and no one can really alter that. Space is fractalising and thus infinitely relativistic, and so infinitely mysterious and complex. A story or stories that are psychologicaly supportive and hypnogogic are going to prevail over explanations that are pragmatic and detailed and cultural norms will skew individual perceptions unconciously. Even the very language and alphabet taints the thoughts and puts great and small alike under the ‘spell’ of ancient magi. It is probably more useful to view reason and rationality as tools rather than as endemic qualities within the nephesh. By the same token religiosity is a tool.Delightfully yours sam

  4. Very thorough and well researched man; his work into the possible existence of Anthroposaurus Sapiens (dinosauroids) is unparalleled.

    His book ‘Who Lies Sleeping: The Dinosaur Heritage and the Extinction of Man’ is an absolute must read for anyone interested in the reptilian humanoid phenomenon.
