Brief Biography of
Rhawn Joseph, Ph.D.



Rhawn Gabriel Joseph began his professional scientific career in the 1970s when he proved and published what were then, major discoveries: 1) neuroplasticity and recovery of function in the primate brain, 2) the hormonal basis of sex differences, 3) early environmental influences on primate brain neuronal-synaptic connections and neural-perceptual development in primate, 4) the effects of enriched vs deprived environmental influences on intelligence, memory, learning and curiosity (see, for example, Joseph 1978, 1980, Joseph et al. 1978, 1979; Joseph & Gallagher, 1980; Joseph & Casagrande 1978, 1980; Casagrande & Joseph 1978, 1980).

Subsequently, Dr. Joseph published major scientific studies in the fields of neuroscience, development, embryology, evolution, quantum physics, consciousness, genetics, and astrobiology (see list of publications below).

In May of 2016, Dr. Joseph proved there was a high probability of life on Mars. In December of 2016, he proved that Martian bacteria and fungi had contaminated and were damaging the NASA Mars Rovers. In February of 2017, and basing his research on the fact that the Mars rovers had not been sterilized, he traced the origins of much of the fungi and bacteria growing atop the Mars Rovers, back to NASA which only cleaned but never completely sterilized the rovers; and in consequence trillions of microbes were transported from Earth to Mars (Joseph 2017).


A Brief Biography is provided after the list of Dr. Joseph's publications.





Can a lizard comprehend a man?

Can a man comprehend a god?

Who dares speak for god?

Perhaps even the gods, have gods, who have gods.

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

"Rhawn" means "the rising of the dawn sun" but his father just called him "son." Due to the spelling of his name, his first and last names were always being confused by others, and he became known as "Joseph."

Beginning around the age of three, Rhawn Gabriel Joseph developed a fascination for birds, salamanders, tadpoles, caterpillars, and especially sand crabs, ants and bees which he collected, placed in jars and assorted containers, and then did his best to keep alive. And, there were the dogs, cats, and singing parakeets, which were always about the house. His parents, taking notice of his interest in mixing together various ingredients from the kitchen and the garage (along with flowers, insect and animals parts), gave him his first microscope and chemistry set at age 5, and he immediately sought to create life.

Joseph's father, "Richard", had been raised on a farm and had spent many an evening studying and gazing at the stars; a fascination he shared with his little son, Joseph; and together they would stand outside, gazing up at the sky, sometimes with binoculars in hand, his father pointing out stars, planets and the constellations, tracing them out and explaining their names, beginning with the Big Dipper, then the Little Dipper, the Morning and Evening Stars, and Mars. On his seventh birthday, Joseph received his first telescope.

Joseph's fondest childhood memories were summers on his grandparent's farm and ranch: "running wild, swimming in the reservoir, studying and collecting insects and rodents, riding on the tractor with my granddad as he explained the nature of the crops, the seasons, metamorphosis and the cycle of life, good and bad insects, and the behavior and habits of the animals who dwelled on the ranch. When I about age 3 or 4, I watched as my grandfather chopped off the head of a chicken which, minus its head, ran to and fro until finally toppling to the ground. It made a profound impression on me."

"I loved that ranch and I loved my grandparents. My grandmother was incredibly wise and intelligent, but deeply religious, and would read to me, stories from the Bible which fired my imagination about the origins of everything, the beginnings, and what came before. But it was the story of Sodom and Gomorrah which led me to turn away and reject this angry, violent, irrational "god." I couldn't understand why God would kill everyone in these cities; Grandma tried to explain. And then I asked: "Did he also kill all the children? Even the babies? She said "yes." I was probably about six or seven years old, but at that moment, I decided I did not like this god, and began to doubt his existence, or that he was really a god."

"Books were part of my life from as early as I can remember. I loved to read, but I never liked school which I thought boring and repetitious. And, teachers were always getting angry with me, for asking inappropriate questions and challenging authority. Well before I hit high school, I was already skipping classes and hitchhiking to the mountains, the ocean, or U.C. Berkeley, sometimes with a book in hand."

"As for girls, I was attracted to the opposite sex for as long as I can remember; but didn't have my first intimate experiences until I hit age 13, when Mrs. T--our neighbor and a newlywed whose lawns I mowed each week--began undressing and parading back and forth in front of her big bay windows in bra and panties, sometimes in high heels, and giving me not a glance. And this went on for weeks every time I mowed her back yard lawn. And then one day, after the bra and panty parade and wearing just a little robe and high heels, she invited me in for lemonade."

In 1966, Rhawn Gabriel Joseph fell in love for the first time, with a young lady whose father worked for the CIA, and whose grandfather was the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Both men engaged the teenaged "Joseph" in discussions about youth, politics, the "Free Speech Movement" and the war in Vietnam: "My father, who worked for a Defense Contractor had been transferred and we were living near WDC, and our neighbors included my girlfriend and her CIA father, as well as ambassadors, generals, and one senator, and not uncommonly, since I knew their kids, these men would also engage me in conversation; in part, because we had moved from California, not too far from where the protest movement was just gaining steam."

Three years later, "Joseph" was offered the opportunity to receive specialized training and to serve the military, without serving in the military even though his draft lottery number was in the low 50s. "At that age, I still had rather naive idea about "good vs evil" and was not your typical "egg head" as I worked out with weights, had lots of "girl friends" and was quite willing to fight with my fists if challenged. But I did not want to go to Vietnam and fight in a war I opposed. So, I accepted the offer. However, that's a story which can't be told."

"I had been doing childish "scientific" experiments since I was a kid. When my family moved back to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1967, it was at the height of the "Summer of love" and I eagerly sought out and began to experiment with LSD, a truly mind expanding substance which I believe enhanced my intelligence and provided me with a greater understanding of consciousness and the nature of reality; insights which meshed with another field of science: quantum physics. But I didn't know that then."

"In the 1970s, when I finally started college, I began volunteering to help some of the grad students and professors with their animal studies. I learned a lot, but nobody would turn me loose in their labs, and there were a lot of experiments I wanted to perform. Finally, I was given carte blanche by a professor who had an animal lab, but never used it; and this led to major opportunities to do big time research in neuroscience, genetics, and biology."

In the late 1970s Dr. Joseph designed, proved, and published what were then, major discoveries: 1) neuroplasticity and recovery of function in the primate brain, 2) the hormonal basis of sex differences, 3) early environmental influences on primate brain neuronal-synaptic connections and neural-perceptual development in primate, 4) the effects of enriched vs deprived environmental influences on intelligence, memory, learning and curiosity (see, for example, Joseph 1978, 1980, Joseph et al. 1978, 1979; Joseph & Gallagher, 1980; Joseph & Casagrande 1978, 1980; Casagrande & Joseph 1978, 1980).

In the 1970s, Dr. Joseph also conducted research on the effects of the environment on gene selection as pertaining to brain development and evolution and the turning on of "silent genes", and in the early 1980s he became interested in the physics and genetics of brain and human evolution which he traced through ancestral species and which led him to the extraterrestrial origins of life on Earth, and, thus he became very involved in the new field of astrobiology. Over the next twenty years, in addition to his expertise in neuroscience, he became an expert in astrobiology, genetics, evolution, and quantum physics.

Dr. Joseph went on to make numerous major scientific discoveries; most of his research has been self-funded; and his work has been replicated many times. In 1986, Dr. Joseph established the "Brain Research Laboratory" in "Silicon Valley" California, and which led to several major discoveries and patents pending.

During the 1980s and early 1990s, Joseph was invited to speak at the University of California at Berkeley, University of Geneva, Brigham Young, University of Japan and other universities, and his published works were reprinted by Harvard Medical School and other universities. He was also invited and gave a lecture on bio-computing to an audience of several hundred engineers at Hewlett Packard, and which led to job offers which he declined.

In 1990 he was appointed to the California Superior Court's Panels of Forensic Experts, and was Court-appointed to over 500 criminal cases, and testified in Court, as an expert witness, as an expert in brain functioning, approximately 100 times. The United States government also referred several thousand individuals suspected of suffering brain injuries to Dr. Joseph and the Brain Research laboratory for examination.

In 1990 and 1996, Dr. Joseph published several "best selling" scholarly texts in the field of neuroscience, which received the highest praise in peer reviewed scientific journals. In 1997, he published: "Life on Earth Came From Other Planets" and in 1999 and 2000, Dr. Joseph published several peer reviewed scientific articles on evolution, embryology, and development, followed by the text: "Astrobiology, the Origins of Life, and the Death of Darwinism" which instantly became a best seller, only to be attacked by NASA which sought to suppress the book.

In 2003 he founded BrainMind Documentary Films and produced, edited, and narrated dozens of science films which were viewed over 50 Million times at youtube by 2009.

In 2009, Dr. Joseph founded and published the Journal of Cosmology, appointed Dr. Rudolf Schild of Harvard, editor-in-chief, and in less than 2 years made it the most read, most talked about scientific journal in the world, with a monthly readership which reached a high of over 600,000 in a single month--at which point, Dr Joseph sold it. It was at this time that he, one of his authors, the Journal of Cosmology, and the editors were viciously slandered and libeled by NASA for publishing evidence of microfossils in an ancient meteorite. NASA has a 50 year history of slandering, threatening, bullying, and attacking even Nobel Prize winning scientists who publish research NASA opposes.

In 2014, Dr. Joseph filed suit against NASA for violations of his First Amendment Rights; a lawsuit which also sought to force NASA to photograph specimens on Mars, which resembled fungi, lichens, algae and mushroom shaped structures. Three days after suit was filed, mushrooms were tossed over his gated fence, and "Tiger Wolf" (his Belgian shepherd) was poisoned--NASA Ames is 15 minutes from his home. Subsequently his home was burglarized and rolls of undeveloped film were stolen, and then the day before he was to present his case before the Federal Court, he was confronted by three men, who threatened harm to his loved ones, if he did not drop the suit.

In April of 2016, he began a study, seeking a consensus among the world's experts, as to the likelihood that specimens photographed on Mars, by NASA's rovers, were living organisms, and 40 scientists, identified by their universities as experts in fungi reached a consensus that there was a high probability of life on Mars, and the peer reviewed evidenced was published (Joseph 2016): There is life on Mars--which shouldn't be a surprise as the evidence is obvious.

NASA tried to prevent the study from taking place; he was harassed, followed, the Cosmology website was repeatedly hacked and files destroyed; and then Penny Boston, NASA's new Director of Astrobiology, sent an outrageously ignorant, disgusting, slanderous, threatening email to "the Journal of Cosmology people" warning them of "unfortunate" consequences if the "Life on Mars" study went forward and if they continued their association with him.

In May of 2016, Dr. Joseph proved there was a high probability of life on Mars. In December of 2016, he proved that Martian bacteria and fungi had contaminated and were damaging the NASA Mars Rovers. Dr. Joseph was repeatedly harassed, libeled, and threatened by NASA personnel who he can identify by name.

"Until the 19th century when Napoleon and the French revolution destroyed the oppressive power of the Church, scientists had to fear local priests and the Inquisition, and generally labored in secret and solitude. You would think, in this supposedly enlightened age, scientists would be free of this kind of oppression. Instead NASA has become the Inquisition, threatening, attacking, destroying reputations, so as to prevent any real research into extraterrestrial life and to keep the public ignorant.

In July of 2016-- after learning that book sales fund Dr. Joseph research-- NASA, Ingram Industries and the Ingram brothers, who have millions of dollars in contracts with NASA, secretly cancelled all book printing and distribution contracts with the publishing companies Dr. Joseph owns--which of course, resulted in a dramatic loss of income and thus a lot less money to support his work. Most of the books advertised on these websites (including those edited or authored by famous scientists), are no longer available, except as e-books thanks to NASA.

Despite the loss of income and ongoing interference and harassment by NASA, Dr. Joseph is continuing with his research.

In March of 2017, Dr. Joseph traced the origins of much of the fungi and bacteria growing atop the Mars Rovers, back to NASA which only cleaned but never completely sterilized the rovers; and in consequence trillions of microbes were transported from Earth to Mars (Joseph 2017).
