Lacking A Godly Frame of Reference, We Could Allow Another Jonestown
Check out David Conn's new book THE SPECIFIC DENSITY OF SCIENTISTS And Their Secret Fears:
In his latest book, THE SPECIFIC DENSITY OF SCIENTISTS, Mr. Conn deals with the cult mentality that has invaded the realm of science and scientists. He explains four major concepts that the “unbifurcated” wing of science has either refused to consider or has fearfully and illogically swept aside.
The Specific Density of Scientists
He exposes the weakness of the “unbifurcated” scientists, their minions, and the growing majority of a general population who, having themselves been infused with unscientific “scientism,” see to it that their children, their students, their spouses, and their friends, are also steeped in it. This errant scientism is a mentality that people are unaware of, but that flows in and out of them in torrents – through public institutions, workplaces, artistic expressions, and social networks – until it reaches a remarkable status of being something that “Everybody knows and believes.”

Reverend Jim Jones
As detailed in Mr. Litke's account above, David Conn and his Seminole friend George Coker tried to caution the American Indian Movement (AIM) against getting too involved with cult leader Jim Jones.
Unfortunately the contact was reported to Reverend Jones, who misinterpreted federal involvement to mean that the IRS was after him, and that it was time to get out of the country. <More...>
Author David Conn talks about the genesis of his Christian Science Fiction novel LEDNORF'S DILEMMA:
"This book sprang from my thinking and experiences as I confronted the theological confusion of the liberals that paved the way for the rise of the cult leader Jim Jones. LEDNORF'S DILEMMA is a natural consequence of my eight year-long undercover investigation of Jones and his cult.

"In detailing the scandal behind the Jim Jones-Peoples Temple invasion of California, LEDNORF'S DILEMMA reveals the darkest, behind-the-scenes cover-up at the highest level of a large mainstream denomination. But it also goes deeply into the underlying causes of the new-age church's involvement with San Francisco Bay Area politics and how they led to the Jonestown horror." <More...>
