Adventures in Science: From Quantum Thinking to Alien Encounters

It is one of the curious oddities of our time that we talk so much about the scientific method as if it is one singular entity when, in point of practice, it is anything but. The ultimate linchpin in science is decided not by how we go about doing it, but about how well our hunches, observations, and results tally with the universe we observe and, in turn, how such intellectual lurches compare and contrast with other competing stratagems in terms of yielding more, not less, information. The very word science, derived from the Latin “scire” (see the Oxford English Dictionary for more on its etymology), is rather open ended and simply means “knowledge.”

Living Among Sasquatch: A Primer

All of the events described in this book actually happened to Dave and Pam Gibson. Truly, no one is more amazed than they are.

They bought land and rented a small cabin to live in while they built their mountain home. In the first year, they were oblivious to the creatures that lived near and passed by their cabin. In the second summer there, they found their first Sasquatch footprint. They discovered that Sasquatches were not only real, but that they lived among them.

This book chronicles their path from nonbelievers in Sasquatch to knowers over a very short period of time, but also reveals many amazing things about these incredible beings. One Sasquatch, in particular, developed a fondness for Pam. She left it apples, and it left her flowers and even half of a squirrel. She also learned that she could communicate with it.

Follow their journey of learning of Sasquatch, North America’s most amazing being.
