  • SilverWood Books - Ultimate Truth
    beings have responsibility By what standards should we measure good and evil On very rare occasions a book is written that has the potential to shake up our understanding of reality and change the world It is no exaggeration to suggest that Ultimate Truth by Oxford philosopher Steven Colborne is such a book With confidence and wisdom Colborne explains the errors of traditional theological thinking before proceeding to describe the true nature of God in a way that no religion has yet managed to do Simplicity and clarity are hard to find in philosophy but Colborne has a gift for expressing his worldview in a way that will surely speak to the heart of each and every reader It may take some time for the full impact of the ideas contained in this book to be realised but Ultimate Truth is destined to establish Steven Colborne as one of the most important philosophers of our time Steven Colborne was born in 1982 in Cambridge England He grew up in Abingdon near Oxford and moved to London to study in 2000 He is a 1st class BA Hons graduate of the University of Westminster and has undertaken postgraduate studies in Philosophy

  • SilverWood Books - The Crash of Nimrod XV30: A Victim's Perspective
    wide range of e readers including Kindle iPad Nook and Kobo Author Trish Knight says I am not a writer I am a mother My youngest son Ben was killed aboard RAF Nimrod XV230 in the skies above Afghanistan on 2 September 2006 He was twenty five years old The aircraft caught fire after air to air refuelling and a Mayday was declared The aircraft exploded in mid air All fourteen crew on board were killed When Ben was growing up there were many occasions that warranted me wishing him good luck school exams or a game of squash to name but a few However Ben possessed a very logical mind and would always reply by saying There s no such thing as luck Mother He believed success depended upon knowledge learned if he was unable to answer a question then he believed it was because he had not taken enough time to study the subject and if he lost a game of squash it was because on the day his opponent was a better player It was nothing to do with luck After the loss of Nimrod XV230 a small number of people criticized the intensity of our quest to establish what caused the aircraft to catch fire and explode killing all fourteen men on board Some said that those on board were simply unlucky and that it was just an accident and thought we should leave it at that But there was no escaping Ben s words For what happened aboard XV230 on that fateful Saturday was a result of a prior action It had nothing to do with luck and although it was an accident as opposed to a deliberate act all accidents have a cause Since Ben s death the family has fought tirelessly to uncover the true state of the Nimrod fleet and to obtain an element of justice for Ben by bringing those people responsible for his death and the loss of XV230 to account In our opinion our son was killed by incompetence not by insurgents The Ministry of Defence has accepted responsibility The Nimrod Review by Charles Haddon Cave QC and commissioned by the Government in my opinion gave the illusion of justice but delivered none Although we welcomed its findings unfortunately it was left up to the families to pursue justice if they so wished The publicity that surrounded the initial loss of XV230 was immense and immediately thrust us into the media spotlight In an attempt to come to terms with everything that was happening to us at that time I began to keep a diary for I didn t want such an horrific situation to eventually fade into obscurity I recorded everything that happened to us on a daily basis for the first three months following Ben s death and continued to keep a weekly journal there afterwards including the mix up of body parts and having a writ served upon me I continued to record my feelings and
