Move over Einstein – make room for the whiz kid of Dark Energy

Just released, The Cults of Relativity – Finding Einstein, Twain and a Universe Beyond E = mc2, presents us with a whole new view of our universe and challenges everything we have learned in the past.  For anyone wishing to have the Theory of Relativity explained with a down-to-earth, honest approach – this could be the book for you.  As a warm-up for appreciating Relativity, the first chapter of Cults will show you why Mark Twain and Albert Einstein mistrusted statistics.  You will leave this chapter understanding the Twain and Einstein mindset, and why statistics cause havoc with government policies and medicine.  Under the guidance of Albert Einstein and with the help of Mark Twain, Cults goes on to explain parallel universes, the warping of time, and many other aspects of Relativity.  Finally, Cults jumps deep into the new discovery of dark energy, and explains why dark energy is so confounding for so many scientists.

The Cults of Relativity has appeal for teachers, professors, doctors, engineers, or college students studying math, physics or medicine. The author, Drake Larson, offers a unique guide for understanding how Einstein and Twain unraveled paradoxes.

Larson’s UCLA education in physics provided him the tools to transform discouraging contradictions into wonderful opportunities.  An Oakland Tribune science editor wrote a tongue and cheek article about Larson’s theories that predicted bizarre gravitational repulsions; a dark energy – this article was published in 1991 – a solid decade before dark energy was actually discovered by the experts.  Larson eloquently explains to you how dark energy envelopes our universe, while physics departments, who were sure his theories were impossible, are now busy rethinking their logic.  A direct quote from this captivating book seems to sum it up: “A novice might grasp what experts believe is unattainable.”

American, Frank Romano, imprisoned by brainwashing militant Muslims, escapes and now tells his story!

Frank Romano was a young Californian living in Paris, studying philosophy during the 70’s and searching for the ideals of a universal religion that believed in peace, tolerance and freedom. He had no idea that his next trip would find him terrified and imprisoned by militant Muslims, and destined to be held captive.

Romano, now a free man, wrote his experiences in Storm Over Morocco, published by World Audience Publishers. This intriguing book begins with the story of how Romano met a group of young Moroccans who impressed him with their Islamic faith. Believing that the study of Islam would help him in his quest to gain spiritual discipline, and ignoring the advice of friends, he entered a mosque in Casablanca to study the Qur’an and Arabic. It doesn’t take him long to realize that his decision did not bring him closer to the religion he sought, but instead to a living nightmare of confinement and brain washing in a mosque ruled by militant Muslim fanatics. As a result of his daring to question the treatment of women, he was charged with being a Zionist spy out to sabotage the back to Islam movement. Although he was acquitted by an internal tribunal, he remained a prisoner in the mosque on the outskirts of Casablanca.

Storm Over Morocco is an autobiographical account of the author’s spiritual path, as well as the terror he experienced during his attempts to escape after he realized he would remain a hostage until his unconditional allegiance to Islam was complete. There follows a most disturbing account of the author’s missionary journey traveled with fellow monks in the southern Morocco desert, where a man who was to be his spiritual guide makes it abundantly clear that he is in control of Romano’s life and he will never allow his disciple to leave the brotherhood. This is a gripping true account of Frank Romano’s terrifying escape and his fearsome struggle to avoid being recaptured.
