|Tut-Ankh-Amen: Living Image of the Lord
Lowest new price: $37.94
Lowest used price: $15.85
List price: $9.50
Author: Moustafa Gadalla
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, that re-created the character of Jesus, living in another time (Roman era) and another place (Palestine, Israel.)

Although classical texts often have outmoded unscientific cosmologies, India’s Bhagavata Purana, upon closer examination, reveals a sophisticated cosmological system containing multiple levels of meaning that encode at least four different astronomical, geographical, and spiritual world models.

|General Relativity: An Introduction to the Theory of Gravitational Field
Lowest new price: $69.95
Lowest used price: $10.00
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.

Author: Roy E. Peacock
These are the two great questions of human history. The first has fired the imaginations of great scientific thinkers and their investigations into the nature of the universe. How do planets move? How are time and space related? How did the universe begin and how will it end?
In A Brief History of Eternity, Professor Rot Peacock has two purposes. First. to trace the development of cosmology, the study of the universe. From Aristotle to Einstein, he shows us how each great thinker has relied and improved upon the thoughts of his predecessors in answering the hows of the cosmos. As he traces this development, he questions Stephen Hawking's idea of a universe with no beginning or end as presented in A Brief History of Time. Using clear, ordinary language, he employs the findings of astronomy and thermodynamics to present his case for a finite universe.
But Professor peacock has a second purpose. Above and beyond the hows of the universe are the whys: Why does the universe exist at all? Why does it appear to be finite? Why are the forces of nature so delicately balanced that the slightest difference would destroy all life? Science has difficulty answering these questions because they are ultimately philosophical and theological. Yet Professor Peacock believes science can give us insight into the whys of the universe and, in the final chapter, he reveals the answers which the great scientists discovered for themselves.
|Historical Deception: The Untold Story of Ancient Egypt
Lowest new price: $71.42
Lowest used price: $16.65
List price: $19.95
Author: Moustafa Gadalla
This book reveals the ingrained prejudices against ancient Egypt, from both the religious groups, who deny that Egypt is the source of their creed, and western rationalists, who deny the existence of science and philosophy prior to the Greeks. The book contains 47 chapters, with many interesting topics, such as the Egyptian medical knowledge about determining the sex of the unborn, and much, much more.
|The Nature of Consciousness, Structure of Reality
Lowest new price: $28.80

List price: $73.95
Author: Jerry Davidson Wheatley
This book describes how understanding the structure of reality leads to the Theory of Everything Equation. The equation unifies the forces of nature and enables the merging of relativity with quantum theory. The book explains the big bang theory and everything else.

Author: Hans Stephani
Thoroughly revised and updated, this self-contained textbook provides a pedagogical introduction to relativity. It covers the most important features of special as well as general relativity, and considers more difficult topics, such as charged pole-dipole particles, Petrov classification, groups of motions, gravitational lenses, exact solutions and the structure of infinity. The necessary mathematical tools are provided, most derivations are complete, and exercises are included where appropriate. The bibliography lists the original papers and also directs the reader to useful monographs and review papers. Previous Edition Hb(1990): 0-521-37066-3 Previous Edition Pb(1990): 0-521-37941-5

Author: Stephen W. Hawking
A Brief History of Time, published in 1988, was a landmark volume in science writing and in world-wide acclaim and popularity, with more than 9 million copies in print globally. The original edition was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the origins and nature of the universe. But the ensuing years have seen extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic world--observations that have confirmed many of Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book.
Now a decade later, this edition updates the chapters throughout to document those advances, and also includes an entirely new chapter on Wormholes and Time Travel and a new introduction. It make vividly clear why A Brief History of Time has transformed our view of the universe.
Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history, wrote the modern classic A Brief History of Time to help nonscientists understand the questions being asked by scientists today: Where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how? Hawking attempts to reveal these questions (and where we're looking for answers) using a minimum of technical jargon. Among the topics gracefully covered are gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time, and physicists' search for a grand unifying theory. This is deep science; these concepts are so vast (or so tiny) as to cause vertigo while reading, and one can't help but marvel at Hawking's ability to synthesize this difficult subject for people not used to thinking about things like alternate dimensions. The journey is certainly worth taking, for, as Hawking says, the reward of understanding the universe may be a glimpse of "the mind of God." --Therese Littleton
