Tut-Ankh-Amen: Living Image of the Lord

Tut-Ankh-Amen: Living Image of the Lord Lowest new price: $25.00
Lowest used price: $0.99
List price: $9.50
Author: Moustafa Gadalla
Brand: Brand: Tehuti Research Foundation

This book provides the overwhelming evidence from archaeology, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Talmud, and the Bible itself, that Tut-Ankh-Amen was the historical character of Jesus. The book examines the details of Tut's birth, life, death, resurrection, family roots, religion, teachings, etc., which were duplicated in the biblical account of Jesus. The book also reveals the world's greatest conspiracy and cover-up, which re-created the character of Jesus, living in another time (Roman era) and another place (Palestine, Israel).

Sample Highlights:
- King Tut's birth name was Tut-Ankh-Aton, meaning The Living Image of the Lord.
- King Tut was, like all Egyptian kings, the spiritual Son of God.
- King Tut was, like all Egyptian kings, called the Messiah/Christ, meaning the "Anointed One".
- The Bible affirms that Jesus was of royal descent, was born to govern, and ruled and died as a king. This contradicts the popular notion that Jesus was of humble roots.
- The Jews affirm that "Pinhas/Phinehas (a contemporary of Moses) killed Jesus" and they did not mention Jesus' presence in Palestine/Israel.
- The spiritual message of the Christian revelation, as told in the Gospel story, is exactly the same as told thousands of years earlier in the ancient Egyptian Osiris/Isis/Horus legend.
- The Christian Easter is a mirror image of the largest ancient (and modern) Egyptian holiday in timing and purpose.
- The Bible, or book, was derived from byblos, which is the Egyptian hieratic word for papyrus.

The road to reality: a complete guide to the laws of the universe

The road to reality: a complete guide to the laws of the universe Lowest new price: $117.12
Lowest used price: $9.92
Author: Roger PENROSE
Brand: Brand: CAPE JONATHAN (RAND) (July 29, 2004)

Roger Penrose, one of the most accomplished scientists of our time, presents the only comprehensive and comprehensible account of the physics of the universe. From the very first attempts by the Greeks to grapple with the complexities of our known world to the latest application of infinity in physics, The Road to Reality carefully explores the movement of the smallest atomic particles and reaches into the vastness of intergalactic space. Here, Penrose examines the mathematical foundations of the physical universe, exposing the underlying beauty of physics and giving us one the most important works in modern science writing.

If Albert Einstein were alive, he would have a copy of The Road to Reality on his bookshelf. So would Isaac Newton. This may be the most complete mathematical explanation of the universe yet published, and Roger Penrose richly deserves the accolades he will receive for it. That said, let us be perfectly clear: this is not an easy book to read. The number of people in the world who can understand everything in it could probably take a taxi together to Penrose's next lecture. Still, math-friendly readers looking for a substantial and possibly even thrillingly difficult intellectual experience should pick up a copy (carefully--it's over a thousand pages long and weighs nearly 4 pounds) and start at the beginning, where Penrose sets out his purpose: to describe "the search for the underlying principles that govern the behavior of our universe." Beginning with the deceptively simple geometry of Pythagoras and the Greeks, Penrose guides readers through the fundamentals--the incontrovertible bricks that hold up the fanciful mathematical structures of later chapters. From such theoretical delights as complex-number calculus, Riemann surfaces, and Clifford bundles, the tour takes us quickly on to the nature of spacetime. The bulk of the book is then devoted to quantum physics, cosmological theories (including Penrose's favored ideas about string theory and universal inflation), and what we know about how the universe is held together. For physicists, mathematicians, and advanced students, The Road to Reality is an essential field guide to the universe. For enthusiastic amateurs, the book is a project to tackle a bit at a time, one with unimaginable intellectual rewards. --Therese Littleton

Infinite Minds: A Philosophical Cosmology

Infinite Minds: A Philosophical Cosmology Lowest new price: $353.15
Lowest used price: $148.95
List price: $48.00
Author: John Leslie

In this highly original and thought-provoking book John Leslie unfolds his view of the nature of the universe. This view is unusual, but rich in philosophical inspiration and suggestion. Over the last three decades Leslie has been developing his theory in a series of path-breaking publications; now at last he gives it its definitive exposition. It may be hard to believe that the universe is as he says it is--but it is hard also to resist his compelling ideas and arguments.

Vedic Physics: Scientific Origin of Hinduism

Vedic Physics: Scientific Origin of Hinduism Lowest new price: $14.99
Lowest used price: $7.98
List price: $14.95
Author: Raja Ram Mohan Roy
Brand: Brand: Golden Egg Pub

Rigveda was written about five thousand years ago. We do not know much about the scientific achievements of our ancestors. Is it possible that there were highly advanced civilizations in past, whose technological achievements have been completely forgotten? Now there can be an objective verification, because Rigveda has been remarkably well preserved. Ancient Indians went to extreme lengths to preserve the Vedas. They are in the same form today, that they have been several thousand years earlier. The question is why? Why did generations of Indians go through so much trouble to preserve the Vedas, while the apparent meaning seems to be so mundane. The reason is that Vedas are coded, and once you understand that code, it has such a powerful message that is going to transform your perception of humanity. This book describes the scientific meaning of Vedas and other Hindu scriptures and compares them with currently accepted scientific wisdom.

General Relativity: An Introduction to the Theory of Gravitational Field

General Relativity: An Introduction to the Theory of Gravitational Field Lowest new price: $35.42
Lowest used price: $32.28
List price: $41.99
Author: Hans Stephani

This book is an excellent introduction to the subjects of gravitation and space-time structure. It presumes a good background in special relativity, electrodynamics, and classical mechanics. The book discusses the foundations of Riemannian geometry; the derivation of the Einstein field equations; linearised theory, far fields and gravitational waves; the invariant characterization of exact solutions; gravitational collapse; cosmology; and a final chapter deals with alternative gravitation theories and the problem of quantum gravity. This revised and correct edition brings the experimental evidence up to date. In addition, the sections on quantum gravity have been rewritten and enlarged, and now form a coherent introduction to this subject.


Exploring the Physics of the Unknown Universe: An Adventurers Guide

Exploring the Physics of the Unknown Universe: An Adventurers Guide Lowest new price: $22.49
Lowest used price: $5.05
List price: $15.00
Author: Milo Wolff
Brand: Brand: Technotran

Part I describes the fundamental laws underlying science. The emphasis is on intuitive understanding of the foundations of scientific knowledge to enable deciphering of Mother Nature's designs for the physical universe. It explains the six fundamental laws: Conservation of Energy, Gravity, Coulomb's force, Newton's laws, Quantum Mechanics, and Special Relativity. The book follows a trail of scientific ideas and clues from the Greeks to Newton, Mach, Clifford, Einstein, Dirac, and Feynman to Modern galactic astronomy.

Part II discusses cosmology, space and the universe. It explores their enigmas and paradoxes. Dr Wolff's role is a friendly guide to the reader, enabling her/him to understand the machinery behind Nature's laws, and to help solve the puzzles which have confounded scientists over the years. The century-old controversy of wave structure or substance structure of particles is examined and it is shown that a wave structure is the probable origin of the natural laws. The mysterious role of space itself is explored and the reader is asked and helped to choose between truth and prejudice.
