Is there a law of divine justice that rewards good deeds and punishes bad ones?
Is the happy destiny of some and the suffering endured by others merited by those who live it?
The idea has become widely popular today that our past actions have determined our present fate.
For the proponents of Karma, the free will that men have used is the sole responsibility for their happiness or their present misfortune. Continue Reading
Is there a law of divine justice that rewards good deeds and punishes bad ones?
Is Creationism true? Or is Darwinism true? And why would it have to be one or the other? It seems it hasn’t occurred to many people that both might be wrong. Since both of them, despite what they might claim, are more about ideology than science, it shouldn’t really be too surprising that science doesn’t really support either, at least not in the form they’re presented.

Russian Scientists Discover Bacteria That Neutralizes Nuclear Wast The unique bacteria, discovered in a nuclear waste storage site in Siberia, shows promise as a tool for the creation of a natural barrier to the spread of radionuclides. Researchers from the Moscow-based Frumkin Institute of Physical Chemistry and the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Federal Research Center for Biotechnology have been able to isolate microorganisms which can be used to safeguard the surrounding environment from liquid radioactive waste. Scientists made the discovery while conducting microbiological studies of the groundwater at the Seversky deep radiation burial site in Seversk, Tomsk region, Siberia, where… Continue Reading
Atheism and agnosticism, having in common that they do not concern themselves with a universal or transcendent creative principle, possibly come down to materialistic beliefs. Referring to the article “To Serve Humanity Or To Rely On The Will Of The Father?“, These forms of belief are comparable to religions of an exclusively feminine nature. They plunge the individual into the material while removing any possibility of doing the opposite movement. However, extremist tendencies represent imbalances such that they are generally destructive in the more or less long-term and sometimes in the very short term. In this case, we can easily… Continue Reading

The Transcendental Treasury of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Author: Ann Gauger If you want to cultivate a spirit of gratitude, I’d like to suggest that you spend some time in meditation on truth, beauty, and goodness. They each represent gifts to us, things that make life possible, intelligible, and worth living. They are such essential qualities that we call them transcendentals. They transcend our everyday knowledge and point toward a source that is at least capable of truth, beauty, and goodness. Why do we value them? They are the foundations on which a life worth living is built. They enable… Continue Reading
When a human being receives an audible message from another person, whether directly or through a device such as a telephone or a radio, he begins by hearing it if the received sound volume is large enough at the level of his ears. He begins to perceive the message through his sensory system, and more specifically through the auditory system of the physical body. In a second step, initially by an act of will, he must appropriate the information and let it penetrate itself. He must voluntarily pay attention to what he hears. He does not only hear the message,… Continue Reading
The Law of Cause and Effect and the Law of Action and Reaction Indicate in particular that what we do at a given moment always leads to consequences of one order or another. And what we “do” can be as concrete action as thinking, imagining, loving … or hating. Our current choices regarding actions, emotions, feelings and thoughts therefore always have consequences for what will happen in the future (near or far). Knowing more about the mechanisms involved will enable us to prepare a better future. Our actions are carried out thanks to forces… Continue Reading
In some esoteric or spiritual circles or networks, there has been for some decades an increasingly popular theory according to which a significant number of human beings would have no soul. Before examining the possible consequences of such a vision of things and in particular to whom it can benefit, we will make a short summary and a quick evocation of its more distant origins. The evoked theory presents various variants, but most often exposes that nearly half of the human beings, of pre-Adamic origin, would be devoid of soul and thus simple “organic portals” just good to be manipulated… Continue Reading
If we define art as the materialization, the manifestation, the representation or the expression of a set of sensations, emotions or feelings and as a way to make them reflect, then there is a close relationship between the art of a civilization and the sensory, emotional and sentimental life of the individuals who compose it. In other words, by studying the various forms of art of a civilization, one can know in particular the emotions and feelings that dominate and influence it. We can notably know if these favor the elevation of the souls or on the contrary their descent… Continue Reading
The matter of the universe is subject to a great implacable universal law called in physics the law of entropy. This can be more easily understood as the Law of Degradation, or the Law of Increased Disorder and Chaos. Applied initially to organized objects and material systems, especially in the study of heat transfer from one object or system to another (for example between a hot plate and a pan of water), it can be generalized to every system, every object, every material body, every living being constituted of matter… It can thus also concern human organizations. Entropy measures the… Continue Reading
For only about two centuries, human have invented machines and instruments. These work with non-animal and non-human energies, whereas before he used his muscles or those of his domesticated animals. He has created more and more sophisticated machines, from the smallest, as small as microbes, to the most gigantic ones, such as particle accelerators that extend over a few tens of kilometers. With them, he managed to decode the microscopic genes of living beings, and to observe distant stars. He can sink deep into the oceans like fish, fly higher and faster than birds, and even go to the moon.… Continue Reading
Still under the influence of survival instinct and related fears, and stimulated in this direction by advertising and marketing, many human beings tend to amass a large amount of material objects that they use in definitively very little. The overconsumption society works by stimulating the desire for material possession which can only be accompanied by waste and growth of pollution. However, if we want a more harmonious and healthier world, it will be necessary to stimulate the human desire firstly in a new, more constructive direction. Does the nature of man boil down to that of an animal endowed with… Continue Reading
In general, our era has two distinct movements: a movement towards matter, materialism, existential concerns … and another towards heaven, the spiritual, the essential concerns … This has probably been the case since the beginning of humanity, in varying proportions, some epochs being dominated by spiritual tendencies and others by material ones. The peculiarity of ours is a growing divide between these two movements. The materialistic and technological world is evolving towards a more and more thorough search for control over all the dimensions of material life and tends to stifle the expressions of the Consciousness and the Spirit. This… Continue Reading
While waiting for a world of total gratuity, selfless gift and sharing of resources (in ten thousand or a hundred thousand years, perhaps), let us leave despite all the mold of modern economy and finance. Consider a feasible world in the near future, in which almost all goods and services could be free. How could this be easily possible? If we consider money as a form of energy that can facilitate trade, then the most logical is to measure its value in energy units, for example in joules or Calories. When a human being does a job (whether in the… Continue Reading
