Do angels see things scientifically?

My award-winning book, Proving God, seeks to offer rational and scientific evidence of purposeful and intelligent creation, from the ideas of Emanuel Swedenborg (and George Gurdjieff). I take issue with certain promoters of religious belief who feel such exacting evidence … Continue reading
