Have you ever wondered about the Mysteries of God’s wisdom or the secret to knowledge? Jesus condemned the religious leaders of his day for taking away the “Key to Knowledge,” (Luke 11:52). This remarkable article anthology may have accidentally uncovered some of these ancient mysteries that are now considered TABOO - to help you to read and really understand the Bible. Less Could the 7 Pillars or dimensions of Wisdom (Pro. 9:1) possibly be related to the “Key to Knowledge?” Hidden Bible Taboos began as one short essay that just for fun proposed a “7 Dimension Theory of Everything” but several readers encouraged me to continue researching it, and I soon discovered that it is the nature of the Universe for things to exist in 7’s. For example, there are 7 types of Matter and 7 forms of Energy in the universe. When we consider “Time,” the 7 Day calendar week continues to be universal and immemorial in its observance among all nations and in all times. Space - our earthly physical space is divided up into 7 Continents, 7 Oceans, and 7 Seas. After studying the multiple patterns of 7s in the universe’s numerical DNA, I turned my focus to ancient cultures and was shocked to find that in the ancient wisdom writings including Christianity, the number 7 stands for spiritual perfection and divine completeness. For example, the Bible’s book of Isaiah mentions the 7 Spirits of God the Father (Isaiah 11:2). The Apostle John mentions the 7 Stars of God the Son (Rev. 1:20), and the Apostle Paul mentions the 7 Gifts of God the Holy Spirit (Rom. 12:6-8). In addition, Zechariah mentions the 7 Eyes of the Lord, which range throughout the earth (Zech. 4:10). This incredible phenomenon of multiples of 7 cannot be explained by chance or human design. It is in these “7 Pillars of God’s Wisdom,” that I have experienced a paradigm shift that has opened my eyes to see this divine tapestry to gain a better understanding of the Bible. The 7 Dimension articles were written as independent brief essays over a period of 7 years. After receiving comments from many readers over the years (sometimes secretly) a theme became apparent that seemed to be pointing to the fact that these divine truths of the 7 dimensional (7D) biblical patterns of 7 were not being taught by the professional religious leaders of Catholic and Protestant Churches, because they were forbidden by custom or tradition. They are TABOO. This compilation of independent articles indirectly provides a historical overview of the ancient world that leads up to the time of Jesus and the Early Church, and reveals some Taboos related to sex, drugs, violence and racism. The majority of the Taboos in this book however, are not related to ancient mysterious pagan practices. The most significant Taboos in this book are coming from professional church leaders of organized religions of Christianity today who forbid their church members from knowing and practicing what is written in the New Testament, and commanded by Jesus and his Apostles. Hidden Bible Taboos is a collection of these 7D articles that have accidentally uncovered and systematically integrated ancient religious mythologies; archeological mysteries; scientific and historical facts; and End Time prophecies to reveal the "Christian Sun-god" conspiracy. It is not a formal theological treatise on spirituality and/or religion as it is a work in progress that is very, very far from perfect. With the above disclaimer to having and/or knowing the absolute truth, I would like to present what I believe to be the 7 dimension (7D) origins of ancient religious knowledge and ageless wisdom that have been passed down to us by our ancestors - So put on your 7D glasses! Dedication: This book is dedicated to Peter Waldo (Founder of the Waldensians) and the 50 million other Christians who were persecuted and slaughtered by the Organized Religion of Christianity (Papacy) in the middle ages and later. Spiritual/Religious Reading Material Warning: The contents of this article anthology may shock and inspire you into developing your spiritual life. Don't let yourself or your friends go without reading this life-changing book!

Though the publication of Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions seemed to herald the advent of a unified study of the history and philosophy of science, it is a hard fact that history of science and philosophy of science have increasingly grown apart. Recently, however, there has been a series of workshops on both sides of the Atlantic (called '&HPS') intended to bring historians and philosophers of science together to discuss new integrative approaches. This is therefore an especially appropriate time to explore the problems with and prospects for integrating history and philosophy of science. The original essays in this volume, all from specialists in the history of science or philosophy of science, offer such an exploration from a wide variety of perspectives. The volume combines general reflections on the current state of history and philosophy of science with studies of the relation between the two disciplines in specific historical and scientific cases.

Interdisciplinary research has been a popular idea with many people in the last 20 years. Academic administrators have admonished their faculty to become more interdisciplinary. Students often request the chance to pursue an interdisciplinary degree. While the issue of managing interdisciplinary projects has received a fair amount of attention by those interested in science management, interdisciplinary research has received little attention from historians, philosophers or sociologists of science or from scientists themselves. Yet, there l;lre a number of cases within the life sciences where researchers have been actively engaged in endeavors that take them across disciplinary boundaries. These are ripe for investigation by those interested in the process of science. To provide an in-depth study of some historical or contemporary cases of cross disciplinary research activity in the life sciences, a conference was held at Georgia State University in May, 1984. This conference was supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities (U. S. A. ) through their research conference program. Over a three-day period historians, philosophers, and researchers who were actively engaged in various of the life sciences discussed specific examples of interdisciplinary research and tried to analyze what was needed for successful crossing of disciplinary boundaries. After the conference, each of the participants revised their original presentations, partly in light of the discussion at the conference. The papers in this volume are the fruits of that endeavor.

What is science? How is it performed? Is science only a method or is it also an institution? These are questions at the core of Managing Science, a handbook on how scientific research is conducted and its results disseminated. Knowledge creation occurs through scientific research in universities, industrial laboratories, and government agencies. Any knowledge management system needs to promote effective research processes to foster innovation, and, ultimately, to channel that innovation into economic competitiveness and wealth. However, science is a complicated topic. It includes both methodological aspects and organizational aspects, which have traditionally been discussed in isolation from each other. In Managing Science, Frederick Betz presents a holistic approach to science, incorporating both philosophical and practical elements, in a framework that integrates scientific method, content, administration and application. Illustrating all of the key concepts with illustrative case studies (both historical and contemporary, and from a wide spectrum of fields), Betz provides in-depth discussion of the process of science. He addresses the social, organizational, institutional, and infrastructural context through which research projects are designed and their results applied, along the path from experimentation to innovation to commercialization of new products, services, and processes. This practical approach to science is the foundation of today's knowledge-intensive and technology-enabled industries, and positions the management of science within the broader context of knowledge management and its implications for organizations, industries, and regional and national technology management policies. Managing Science will be an essential resource for students in all areas of research, industry scientists and R&D specialists, policymakers and university administrators, and anyone concerned with the application of research to economic growth and development.

Health and the environment are important learning areas in science education and their significance is growing. Not only do they have high social relevance, but they are also close to students’ interests and needs. They provide many opportunities to unlock science with questions that are personally relevant to boys and girls and that inspire them to engage in science. This book contains a selection of papers from prominent professionals in science, health and environmental education, who reflect on science education, each from their specific point of view. The core idea is to present well-founded perspectives on how science education may benefit from challenges stemming from both health and environmental education. Specific reasons are discussed as to why these two areas are particularly legitimized to challenge science education, and their potential impact on a revision of science education is evaluated. A new pedagogy for science¦environment¦health that yields interesting and relevant science education for students and teachers, and addresses the grand challenges of this century: what an attractive and rewarding project! The book will motivate teachers, teacher educators and science education researchers to take part in this on-going project.

A good book may have the power to change the way we see the world, but a great book actually becomes part of our daily consciousness, pervading our thinking to the point that we take it for granted, and we forget how provocative and challenging its ideas once were—and still are. The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is that kind of book. When it was first published in 1962, it was a landmark event in the history and philosophy of science. Fifty years later, it still has many lessons to teach. With The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Kuhn challenged long-standing linear notions of scientific progress, arguing that transformative ideas don’t arise from the day-to-day, gradual process of experimentation and data accumulation but that the revolutions in science, those breakthrough moments that disrupt accepted thinking and offer unanticipated ideas, occur outside of “normal science,” as he called it. Though Kuhn was writing when physics ruled the sciences, his ideas on how scientific revolutions bring order to the anomalies that amass over time in research experiments are still instructive in our biotech age. This new edition of Kuhn’s essential work in the history of science includes an insightful introduction by Ian Hacking, which clarifies terms popularized by Kuhn, including paradigm and incommensurability, and applies Kuhn’s ideas to the science of today. Usefully keyed to the separate sections of the book, Hacking’s introduction provides important background information as well as a contemporary context. Newly designed, with an expanded index, this edition will be eagerly welcomed by the next generation of readers seeking to understand the history of our perspectives on science.

The regulation of gene expression in many biological processes involves epigenetic mechanisms. In this new volume, 24 chapters written by experts in the field discuss epigenetic effects from many perspectives. There are chapters on the basic molecular mechanisms underpinning epigenetic regulation, discussion of cellular processes that rely on this kind of regulation, and surveys of organisms in which it has been most studied. Thus, there are chapters on histone and DNA methylation, siRNAs and gene silencing; X-chromosome inactivation, dosage compensation and imprinting; and discussion of epigenetics in microbes, plants, insects, and mammals. The last part of the book looks at how epigenetic mechanisms act in cell division and differentiation, and how errors in these pathways contribute to cancer and other human diseases. Also discussed are consequences of epigenetics in attempts to clone animals. This book is a major resource for those working in the field, as well as being a suitable text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on gene regulation.

According to polling data, most Americans doubt that evolution is a real phenomenon. And it’s no wonder that so many are skeptical: many of today’s biology courses and textbooks dwell on the mechanisms of evolution—natural selection, genetic drift, and gene flow—but say little about the evidence that evolution happens at all. How do we know that species change? Has there really been enough time for evolution to operate? With The Evidence for Evolution, Alan R. Rogers provides an elegant, straightforward text that details the evidence for evolution. Rogers covers different levels of evolution, from within-species changes, which are much less challenging to see and believe, to much larger ones, say, from fish to amphibian, or from land mammal to whale. For each case, he supplies numerous lines of evidence to illustrate the changes, including fossils, DNA, and radioactive isotopes. His comprehensive treatment stresses recent advances in knowledge but also recounts the give and take between skeptical scientists who first asked “how can we be sure” and then marshaled scientific evidence to attain certainty. The Evidence for Evolution is a valuable addition to the literature on evolution and will be essential to introductory courses in the life sciences.
