|Stranger in a strange land [sound recording] |
by Heinlein, Robert A. 1907-1988
Fun to listen to on the road. A human raised by Martians, is returned to Earth and is baffled by how bizarre we are. Author seems to have had a bad experience with religion and attacks them all. posted Jan 31, 2013 at 11:16AM
|Proof of heaven : a neurosurgeon’s journey into the afterlife |
by Alexander, Eben
"Proof" is subjective. He does not explain how he remembers his journey when the memory portion of his brain was shut down. Or if it was transferred from his separate consciousness to his mortal brain. Furthermore his "journey" could have taken place in the 5 minutes or 5 hours before he awoke - when his brain was functioning. That would make possible several scientific explanations - that he dismisses in appendix. B. posted Jan 13, 2013 at 1:00PM

|Where eagles dare [videorecording] |
by Hutton, Brian G.
A complicated WW2 war/spy thriller. You don’t know who is on which side and must pay attention. Makes the Brits & Germans look cunning while the naive American (Clint Eastwood) is along for the ride. Good fun. posted May 23, 2011 at 3:54PM
