A Complete Cookery Book for Glutenfree Diets

A detailed guide to recipes and cooking for all gluten-free diets

It includes hundreds of recipes for everything from chocolate cake to bread and curry

There is a busy forum / message board where most questions get answered within a few days, if not the same day

I have to follow a gluten-free diet since being diagnosed as a celiac many years ago. When I was first diagnosed there was no clear and easily information available. I was asked to write a book to fill this gap. This book is still regarded as one of the best that explains how to cook for the coeliac diet. After two editions in print and sales worldwide, this is now available free on the web and in a Kindle edition.

Food Combining Diets

A detailed guide to recipes and cooking for food combining and the Hay diet

I examined the ideas of Dr Howard Hay while studying for the gluten-free book. I thought Dr Hay got a very bad press for his original thoughts on a healthy diet, not least because some of the authors who have published books on his diet simply did not understand the scientific language he was using and misrepresented his ideas. The full text of Complete Food Combining - All you need to know about the Hay Diet is available here and the discussion board is an active one.

Some of the best walks in New Zealand North Island
New Zealand has some excellent walks, but they are well spread out. Roads are excellent, so a hire car is a good way of getting to them. Homestay accommodation also provides some of the best accommodation and can be cheaper than a camper van.

Exercises in Critical Thinking

The following pages are presented as exercises in critical thinking. They are not peer reviewed theories! You need to apply careful scientific logic to them.

The theories in this site are based entirely on conventional physics. There are no claims of magic or strange forces. The laws of nature are not bent or twisted to support some weird theories. If you can show that the hypotheses set out below are false, then let me, and everyone else know exactly why – but you must argue from the basic principles of science. Don’t quote me a university text book or a Victorian vicar that states that “It cannot be possible”. Follow my arguments step by step, and then identify the flaws in the logic.

Lightning

Something as commonplace as a lightning discharge should be accurately described by meteorological textbooks - but they talk of positive lightning and return strokes. Can they be serious?
Here is a theory of lightning that doesn't break all the rules of physics.

When you have studied the pages you are welcome to join the discussion, but please note that any claims you make for or against these theories should be backed by scientific reasoning that can be developed from first principles.

Remember - these are exercises in critical thinking! I am not staking my reputation on them!

Ice Ages and Global Warming

Ice Ages and Global Warming - Revisiting the theories of Professor Hapgood. Another exercise in critical thinking

Are there illogicalities in conventional theories of the ice ages and of global warming?
Can alternative theories explain all the features of the ice ages and the current warming? It was ridiculed into obscurity when it was first proposed by Hapgood, but is there much evidence available that supports it, and it can explain all the inconsistencies of the ice ages?

Ancient History - fact or fiction

Too many students (and professors) seem to loose their critical faculties when they get caught up in an exciting idea.

At one extreme the dogmatic insistence on theories that are printed in a text book, even when these ideas are refuted by science, technology and the evidence.

At the other extreme the belief in magical explanations that defy known science.

The following are exercises in explaining how things could have been done in the past:


How to cut stone

How to - as told by Rekmara

How to lift a monolith

How to measure and mark out true North

How to move and lift stone

How many people needed to build pyramid?

Serious Anomalies

Serious Anomalies. Further exercises in critical thinking

The attempts to explain evidence from the past was largely successful, but it did throw up a number of serious anomalies. Some of these also tie in extremely well with the fusion engine being developed from the charge sheath vortex theories.
