Four hundred years ago Gregory Sams would have been hunted down and destroyed.  To gain insight into the meaning of heresy and heretical, enjoy this interview with the author of "Sun of gOd" on The Moore Show (U.K.).  The wicked proposition?  That the Sun has a consciousness.  That's not a new idea, it's perhaps the oldest idea.  There is no life without the sun, literally.  So the proposition is certainly a thought that goes bump in the night.  This is the kind of thinking and thoughtful exploration that has been under assault for nearly two thousand years.  Hardly scary and fully rational.  The clip is long, but worth the time.  So's the book.
