The Universe Begins Without a Big Bang
In the first part of this course, a brief history of astronomers and their machines used to gather data will be discussed. This data has been used to formulate various hypotheses about how the universe began. The second part of the course will discuss one hypothesis known as the Big Bang Theory, including its genesis, short comings and errors. Finally, a new hypothesis will be discussed that is believed to fit the data better as well as not violating fundamental laws of physics. (2 sessions) 

Instructor: Bob Farrell, PhD is a retired Penn State Professor. He is a prolific writer and has done extensive research on historic and scientific phenomena for his books.

What Non-Muslims Need to Know about Islam as Ideology -- The Basics

Not a day goes by that we do not read about violent religious bigotry, hatred, virulent anti-Semitism, persecution of Christians, abuse of women, honor killings and mass murder -- all coming out of the world of Islamd and perpetrated by religious Moslems in the name of Islam. And, they quote their sacred texts! That is why we need to learn what is in those texts. 

In this two-hour introductory class, which includes Q&A, participants will gain sufficient understanding of the idealological nature of Islam to be able to make sense of much of what is going on in the world today including Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, The Islamic Republic of Iran, Turkey, Eqypt, Syria, Libya, ISIS and, especially, the conflict over Israel. 

We will examine the Koran, the ahadith (sayings of Muhammad), Sharia Law and the writings of the most respected Islamic regligious authorities to see what these Islamic sources say about Jews, Christians, other non-Muslims and women.

Instructor: Dr. Goldberg received his PhD in history from the University of Michigan. After 9/11 he began to study Islam and has made many public speaking and radio appearances in Arizona and Nevada. He has taught at the Phoenix Bureau of Jewish Education and maintains an email discussion list for public awareness on the nature of Islam.
