Critics Decry Human Embryo Cloning

Researchers at Advanced Cell Technology in Worcester,
Massachusetts claim to have cloned a six-cell human embryo from
a donated female egg. In a separate experiment they developed
a more advanced embryo referred to as a blastocyst in a process
known as parthenogenesis. The announcement, appearing in the
journal e-biomed: The Journal of Regenerative Medicine and online
in Scientific American, drew a volley of opposition from the White
House, the Vatican, and other abortion foes who see it as a step
Toward cloning human beings. Another company called Clonaid
Claimed in unpublished research to also have cloned human
embryos. Go to: for full story

Was the Taj Mahal a Vedic Temple?

Photographic evidence collected by Stephen Knapp suggests that
the Taj Mahal may have been a Shiva Temple and Vedic Palace
rather than a mausoleum built by Muslim ruler Shahjahan.  Black
and white photos taken by the Archaelogical Survey of India that
were secretly smuggled out of India tell the story of how the Taj
Mahal was actually a Vedic temple complex pre-dating Shahjahan
by several centuries. The back of each photo bears a stamp by the
Archaeological Survey of India attesting to its authenticity.
Captions accompany each photo. To see these photos go to:

I was saddened to learn of the passing of George Harrison from
this world. When I was first becoming acquainted with the
teachings of of the Hare Krishna movement in the early 1970s,
my sister gave me copies of George's albums containing songs
like "My Sweet Lord," which features the Hare Krishna mantra in
its refrain. I also liked the foreword George wrote to the Krishna
Book, by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
Prabhupada, who later became my guru. I suppose that George's
interest in Krishna consciousness as presented by Bhaktivedanta
Swami helped me validate my own choice. It was my interest in
Krishna consciousness that led me into my work in forbidden
archeology. It was only when I began to study the ancient
Sanskrit writings of India, which tell of human civilizations
existing hundreds of millions of years ago on this planet, that
I began to question the version of human origins and antiquity
that I learned in school.

In the late 1970s, I met Mukunda Goswami (Michael Grant),
who was one of the first Hare Krishna devotees to go to England.
In London, he met George Harrison and the two became life long
friends. Mukunda Goswami was with George when he left this
world. Over the years, Mukunda Goswami and I have
collaborated on a series of small paperback books on various
aspects of the Hare Krishna philosophy and way of life. The
most recent was Divine Nature: A Spiritual Perspective on the
Environmental Crisis, which came out in 1995. George was
kind enough to contribute an endorsement, which appeared
on the cover: "Divine Nature leads the human spirit upward.
The authors lucidly explore the dimensions of a genuine
solution to the world's environmental crisis. They suggest that
the most important changes must come first within each of
us--in the way we see ourselves and the universe, the way we
eat, and the way we live." Once George let Mukunda Goswami
and I use his beautiful house on Hamilton Island off the coast of
Australia for a writing retreat, and would call in from time to time
to see how we were doing.

George touched the lives of many in the world, including, in
some small way, my own. I shall miss his presence with us.

FORUM: Comrades in the Evolution Revolution

Letters to

Question: I am a student at Ohio State University and I need
to write a paper about human evolution for one of my classes.
The paper is about the pros and cons of teaching human
evolution in public schools. I was wondering if you know of
any Peer Reviewed articles i.e. in scientific journals that
challenge the current theories of evolution. If you do, would
you be able to e-mail me any information. Thank you.

Answer:At the present moment anti-evolution views are not
very popular among scientists, and are therefore not often
found in peer-reviewed journals. But perhaps even more
significant is that there are no articles in peer-reviewed journals
that actually support the current theories of evolution. The
current theory is based on molecular biology and genetics.
Genes code for proteins, and changes in genes supposedly
result in different proteins being produced in different ways
that change the structure of organisms on the biomolecular
level. The idea is that by natural selection, the biomolecular
changes that confer some advantage are preserved and those
that don't are not preserved. Supposedly, this process can
result in new structures. So if evolution is true, one should be
able to show step by step how complex features of living things
(such as the eye, the immune system, etc.) have come about
in a step by step fashion on the biomolecular level. If one can't
do this, then one hasn't shown in a scientific way that evolution
actually happens. It becomes merely an article of scientific faith.

Biochemist Michael Behe says:

"In the past ten years Journal of Molecular Evolution has
published more than a thousand papers. Of these, about one
hundred discussed the chemical synthesis of molecules thought
to be necessary for the origin of life, about fifty proposed
mathematical models to improve sequence analysis, and
about eight hundred were analyses of sequences. There
were zero papers discussing detailed models for intermediates
in the development of complex biomolecular structures. This is
not a peculiarity of JME. No papers are to be found that discuss
detailed models for intermediates in the development of
complex biomolecular structures, whether in the Proceedings
of the National Academy of Science, Nature, Science, the
Journal of Molecular Biology or, to my knowledge, any science
journal." Behe 1998, p. 183.

"The idea of Darwinian molecular evolution is not based on
science. There is no publication in the scientific literature—in
journals or books—that describes how molecular evolution
of any real, complex, biochemical system either did occur or
even might have occurred. There are assertions that
such evolution occurred, but absolutely none are supported
by pertinent experiments or calculations." Behe 1998, p. 183

Behe, Michael J. (1998) Intelligent design theory as a tool
for analyzing biochemical systems. In William A. Dembski,
ed. Mere Creation: Science, Faith, and Intelligent Design.
Downers Grove, Illinois: Intervarsity Press, pp. 177-194.

He makes the same point in his book Darwin's Black Box.
There can be found in peer reviewed journals articles that
contain evidence contradicting the theory of evolution, but
the articles will not be presented as being anti-evolutionary.
In my book Forbidden Archeology, I have presented lots
of evidence from peer-reviewed journals that contradicts
the current theory of human evolution.

Also, we have to keep in mind that scientific ideas are formed
not just on the basis of articles in peer-reviewed journals, but
by papers published in peer reviewed conference proceedings
volumes and in books putting forth scientific concepts. After all,
Darwin didn't publish his theory of evolution in a peer-reviewed
journal. He published it in a book. So I think you can look at
books like Darwin's Black Box by Michael Behe, Icons of
Evolution by Jonathan Wells, and Mere Creation, edited by
William A. Dembski. And from those books you can see how
the authors extract information from peer-reviewed scientific
journals that contradicts the theory of evolution.

I have recently had a paper contradicting the current theory
of human evolution published in a peer reviewed conference
proceedings volume. The paper is called Puranic Time and
the Archaeological Record, and it can be found in Time and
Archaeology, edited by Tim Murray, published by Routledge,
London (1999).

I hope this gets you started in a helpful direction. You could
also look at the website.

Sincerely yours,
Michael A. Cremo

Question: Hi.

I was wondering if you reject the evolutionary model in its entirety or is
there anything to be salvaged from it?

Would you consider evolution to be basically false or is there another
possibility, perhaps such as that the time-line of evolution to be a subset
in a larger series of cycles, rather like that which is described in a Vedic

I really enjoy your work and consider it very provocative.
Must we throw Darwinism away?
Thank you very much,

Answer: The parts of Darwinism related to what is called "microevolution" could
remain. This is the part of evolution that relates to changes within
species. Everyone knows that if you selectively breed cats for example, you
can get them to change in a certain direction, although they always remain
cats. But the idea of macroevolution by Darwinian processes would have to
be jettisoned. In the Vedic worldview there is a kind of macroevolution
that takes place, but not by the Darwinian process. In the Darwinian
process, the first living thing, a simple cell, is said to self-organize
from chemicals. No one has ever demonstrated how that can happen in any
detailed way. In the Vedic worldview there is also a first living thing.
But it is not the simplest living thing, it is the most complex. The first
living thing is the demigod Brahma, who is manifested directly from God. It
is Brahma's duty to populate the universe. He accomplishes this by an
evolutionary process, but it is not Darwinian. By evolution in general, we
mean reproduction with modification. Darwinists assert that this can happen
by random genetic changes that produce changes in the physical form of the
organism. But they have never demonstrated exactly how this occurred in the
case of any particular species. They do have some little bits and pieces of
the puzzle, but they have never explained the exact process, the exact
sequence of genetic changes, for any particular species, therefore we are
simply asked to accept that it happened because they say it happened. In
the Vedic worldview, there is also a process of reproduction and
modification. It is said that Brahma produces some mental sons from his
mind. And then he also produces the first sexual reproducing pair (Manu
and Shatarupa). Manu and Shatarupa produce sons and daughters. The
daughters are given in marriage to the mental sons of Brahma (they are
great mystic yogis). They begin to have children. These are all existing on
the demigod level. One of these beings is called Daksa. He has many
daughters, who are married to various sages and demigods, and by their
reproductive processes, they produce all the various kinds of living things
of our earthly experience. In producing these kinds, they make use of bijas
("seeds") provided by God to Brahma. These seeds contain the forms of body
plans. So you might say it is an intelligently guided evolutionary
progression, beginning from the most complex living entity and working down
from there. Of course, this is just a sketch, but I hope it will give you
some idea. The process is repeated over and over again in the
course of cyclical time. All this is the topic of my next book, which
I hope to have out in a year or two.

Sincerely yours,
Michael A. Cremo

Dear Friend…..I guess you are my friend, I have no enemies.
About 5 years ago a friend came across of metal arrowhead that
was embedded in a petrified nautilus shell. The only part
sticking out was the tang in the rear of the head. He spent
several days in his spare time chipping it out and had it
completely out before I knew what he was doing. I would have
stopped him if I could have. At any rate it is about 2 ½ or 3
inches long and about ¾ to 1 inch wide at the widest point.
It appeared to have been cast and had holes in the cetner with
designs in the metal. I want to get a picture and even make a
casting of it when I get the chance. I would like to find someone
who could identify it. I assumed it was probably a Viking point.
Or perhaps European. The mystery to me is that if my limited
knowledge of geology is correct, then if something is petrified,
then it has to predate the age when man had the capabilities
to cast metal. If this is true, how could an iron arrowhead be
shot into nautilus shell when the arrowhead was produced
millions of years after the shell was alive? The point was
found in a creek around Fredericksberg, Texas……Could you
lead me in a direction of of someone who could identify it?

Michael Cremo responds: I don’t know anyone personally
who is expert in Viking things, but I can, as you say, point
you in a direction that might lead you to someone. You can
check out the web site at
It is a Viking studies research site, with lots of links to Viking
research pages, museums, etc. Meanwhile, if I run into any
qualified person, I will let you know.

Editors note: Are there any Viking experts out there?
