Proposed Public Debate Participants

 


Proposed Public Debate Participants—28 March 2003—CBC in Calgary

None of the proposed public debate participants nor the proposed moderator responded—ie. they all fled in bad faith.

Round One

The Champ—Harvey P. Weingarten—President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calgary

The Challenger—King Christopher

The University of Calgary is not a place one goes to learn to think well—it is a place one goes to learn how to pleasure the Man.  Aside from a few letters, a few good books and few good times, all I got out of my University of Calgary education was nausea ad nauseam.

—King Christopher

 

While relativity uncovers the secrets of energy, gravity and spacetime—the other theory that dominated the twentieth century, quantum theory, is the theory of matter. What Einstein didn’t realize, as physicists do now, is that the key to the unified field theory is found in the marriage of relativity and quantum theory.

—Michio Kaku

 

I want to know God's thoughts. The rest are details.

—Albert Einstein

I challenge you to debate why the University of Calgary does not teach fundamentals in the spirit of the first university founded by Plato in 387 BC—and why the University of Calgary has not recognized my Theory of One and Unified Field Theory.

 

Quantum theory does not hold undisputed sway, but must share dominion with that other rebel sibling—relativity. And although these two bodies together have led to the most penetrating advances in the search for knowledge—they must remain enemies. Their fundamental disagreement will not be resolved until both are subdued by a still more powerful theory that will sweep away our present painfully won fancies concerning such things as space, time, matter, radiation and causality. The nature of this theory may only be surmised—but it will ultimately come down to the very same certainty as to whether our civilization as a whole survives—no more no less.

—Banesh Hoffmann

Round Two

The Champ—Beverley McLaughlin—Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Canada

The Challenger—King Christopher

In exercising the Divine Right of Kings, I, Christopher Lloyd Bek, acting under the legitimate agency of God and having demonstrated my moral superiority, lawfully and rightfully claim My Kingship and sole Sovereignship to the Sovereignty of Canada. May anyone who morally stands against me speak now or forever hold your peace. As the King of Canada, I will hold no political power, will walk among the people, and will be above the manmade laws of government. I answer only to God as per the Divine Right of Kings.

—King Christopher

I challenge you to debate why you have not recognized my Lawful and Rightful Declaration of Kingship to Canada.

 

A just society will only be possible once philosophers become kings and kings become philosophers.

—Plato

 

No problem was ever solved by the same mind that created it.

—Albert Einstein

Round Three

The Champ—Jean Chrétien—Prime Minister of Canada

The Challenger—King Christopher

Knowledge Le Savoir.

—Jean Chrétien

 

When war breaks out people say its stupid and can't last long.  But being stupid doesn't prevent it from lasting.  Stupidity has a knack of getting its way, which we would see if we were not always so wrapped up in ourselves.

—Albert Camus

I challenge you to debate why you have not made good on your claim—Knowledge Le Savoir—and why you failed to publicly recognize my Theory of One as I requested in my letter of 28 June 2002.  Specifically, in my letter to Chief Justice McLachlin on 28 September 2002 I claimed that I could prove with mathematical certainty that the God of the Jews and the God of the Arabs is exactly the same God.  I also challenge you to debate why supporting me in fostering the truth is not the first step towards lasting world peace.

Round Four

The Champ—Ralph Klein—Premier, Province of Alberta

The Challenger—King Christopher

I call for a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.  I recognize the difficulties of this goal—for all this will not be finished in the first 100 days, nor will it be finished in the first 1000 days, nor in the life of this administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet.  But let us begin.

—John Fitzgerald Kennedy

I challenge you to debate why you failed to publicly recognize my Theory of One as I requested in my letter of 28 June 2002.  I also challenge you to debate why the deployment of VLTs, that specifically target the weakest and most vulnerable members of society, is not in direct violation of Kennedy’s dream of a new world of law where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.

Round Five

The Champ—Adrienne Clarkson—Governor General of Canada

The Challenger—King Christopher

Know thyself.

—The Socratic inscription on the Oracle at Delphi in ancient Greece

 

I think, therefore I exist

—René Descartes

 

To thine own self be true.

—William Shakespeare

As I understand, the primary role of the governor general and ten lieutenant governors is to oversee the proper and efficient operation of good government in Canada.  I challenge you to debate why the governor general and ten lieutenant governors have not completed the Delphi questionnaire sent on 28 September 2002.  I assert that predefining values represents the essence of good government.

Round Six

The Champ—Dr. J. Naylor—Senior Psychiatrist, Peter Lougheed Hospital

The Challenger—King Christopher

Many anthropologists, sociologists and psychologists have used their expert knowledge to prove that man is free, purposeful and responsible. This escape route is slowly being closed as new evidence of the predictability of human behavior is discovered. Any personal exemption from complete determinism is being revoked as scientific analysis progresses—particularly when accounting for the behavior of the individual.

—B.F. Skinner —Skinner (1904-90) was the father of modern behaviorism

 

There can be no other truth to take off from this—I think, therefore I exist—ie. the Cartesian cogito. There we have the absolute truth of consciousness becoming aware of itself. Every theory which takes man out of the moment in which he becomes aware of himself is, at its very beginning, a theory which confounds the truth, for outside the Cartesian cogito, all views are only probable, and a doctrine of probability which is not bound to a truth dissolves into thin air. In order to describe the probable, you must have a firm hold on the true. Therefore, before there can be any truth whatsoever, there must be an absolute truth; and this one is easily arrived at; it is on everyone's doorstep; it is a matter of grasping it directly.

—Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-80) —Sartre was the father of modern Existentialism

 

If the mental illness of the United States is megalomania—that of Canada is paranoid schizophrenia.

—Margaret Atwood

 

I challenge you to debate why Canadian doctors employ the outwardly-focusing behavioralistic psychological model rather than the inwardly-focusing existential model which makes consciousness, and thus the soul, primordially important.  I was told recently that I have been diagnosed with schizophrenia—a term that comes from ancient Greece and means divided mind.  When we met on 18 October 2002 you told me that denying a higher truth and lying are not the same thing.  Let’s say we sat down for an hour and I was able to mathematically convince you of the higher truth that Planck’s constant and lightspeed are the same boundary of the spacetime continuum.  According to your assertion, you could deny the higher truth even though you knew it to be true in your mind.  In other words, your mind would be divided and you would thus be schizophrenic.  But how is denying a higher truth at the end of a conversation different than avoiding such a conversation altogether?  The answer is there is no difference—meaning that you, as a psychiatrist, are schizophrenic.  And more to the point, you make your living implying your schizophrenia on others.  I am accused of being schizophrenic because I refuse to let go of higher truths and thus my mind remains divided from mainstream, schizophrenic thinking—the very seeds of which you yourself have sewn.  Kind of funny how that works, isn’t it, Dr J?  I contend that all the world’s problems stem from the application of the behavioralistic psychological model which, according to its founders, Watson and Skinner, deny the existence of consciousness—thereby denying the existence of self-consciousness—which is the soul—which is also the steering mechanism.  In other words, all you have to do to solve all the world’s problems is admit that you bet on the wrong horse.  Are you man or mouse?  One squeak for man, two for mouse.

Round Seven

The Champ—R.B. Hicks—Physics Department Chair, University of Calgary

The Challenger—King Christopher

Give me one fixedpoint and I will move the earth.

—Archimedes

 

Superstring theory is a is a miracle through and through.  We are witnessing a birth in science as great as the discovery of quantum theory.  It will dominate the world of physics for the next fifty years.

—Edward Witten

 

I challenge you to debate why you and the Physics Department at the University of Calgary failed to recognize the significance of the 1982 Aspect experiment, failed to recognize that lightspeed and Planck’s constant are the same boundary of the spacetime continuum, and finally failed to recognized my Theory of One and Unified Field Theory as being the profoundly important discoveries that they are.

Round Eight

The Champ—Jim Kelly—Principal, Crescent Heights High School

The Challenger—King Christopher

Nothing in education is so astonishing as the amount of ignorance it accumulates in the form of inert facts.

—Henry Adams

 

A second Enlightenment is now needed in which man can live in peace with his own discoveries and creations—enabled by a fuller comprehension to use them for his enrichment and pleasure. The realization of this second Enlightenment cannot be fulfilled by ordinary educational means. What we require are books with sufficient appeal and persuasive power to enlighten the intelligent but scientifically uninformed multitudes.

—Henry Margenau

I challenge you to debate why the educational system is forcing the children to think the same as the government—why the educational system has failed to pose the Socratic question of what is X in understanding the basic building blocks like the Pythagorean theorem, Socrates’ Know thyself, Plato’s Forms, Plato’s allegory of the Cave, Ockham’s Razor, Dirac’s Principle of Aesthetic Value, Relativity, Quantum Theory, Copernicus’ Theory of Heliocentricity, the Cartesian cogito, Leibniz’s Monads, Schrödinger’s Cat, Einstein’s Moon, Bek’s Theory of One and Bek’s Unified Field Theory—and failed to recognize that Descartes, who founded modern philosophy and modern mathematics, slept until noon everyday and said he did his best thinking in a warm bed.

Round Nine

The Champ—Bishop Kevin Zemp—Bishop, Crescent Heights Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints

The Challenger—King Christopher

Modern man wants neither God nor Christ—for what he desires is simply the authority of the Church.  He wants the physical security of bread, the spiritual security of dogma, and the so-called proof of the existence of miracles.  To follow God irrespective of the consequences presents too great a risk.  The Church offers up a lighter burden.  It serves, selects and explains the truth, forgives sins and bestows upon man the happiness of children.  Yet the price is high.  Man must surrender his freedom of thought and, indeed, he willingly does so.  He no longer serves God as God demands of him, but only as the Church tells him so.  God’s mysteries and miracles are henceforth monopolized and administered by the Church.

—William Hubben

I challenge you to debate why the Church has not recognized, as Sir James Jeans (1877-1946) said, that God is a mathematician.  I also challenge you to debate my assertion that the Church is misrepresenting God and Christ for profit.

 

War is a moral contest that is won in the temples before it is ever fought.

—Sun Tzu

 

God is dead. We have killed him, you and I.

—Friedrich Nietzsche

Round Ten

The Champ—John Beaton—Chief of Police, City of Calgary

The Challenger—King Christopher

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was the third president of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence.  He was one of the most brilliant individuals in history.  His interests were boundless and his accomplishments were great and varied.  He was a philosopher, educator, naturalist, politician, scientist, architect, inventor, pioneer in scientific farming, musician, writer and was the foremost spokesman for democracy of his day.  Jefferson swore his hostility to every form of tyranny over the mind of man.  During his lifetime he sought to develop a government that would best assure the freedom and well-being of the individual.

—Microsoft Encarta

I challenge you to debate why the Calgary Police deny individual rights like the Unconditional Godgiven Right to Say No—and why you are not holding up someone like President Thomas Jefferson—ie. a philosopher, educator, naturalist, politician, scientist and supporter of natural laws and natural rights—as the ideal for all police.

 

The terror of confronting oneself in situations calling for subjective judgment is so great that most people immediately panic and run for cover under the first obvious argument that seems to apply.

—William Barrett
