THE MEANING OF EASTER Keep
your beliefs. Keep your politics, keep your dollar.
am a legal empiricist with a special message for you.
Christian theology created some 2,000 years ago tells
us that Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday and
was the ONLY person to do so. Science tells us to-day,
that ALL people on crossing over "rise from the dead".
Christian theology tells us that on dying we remain unconscious
"until Jesus comes to judge the living and the dead."
THAT IS NOT CORRECT! Empirically elicited information
tells us we continue to live - that on crossing over we
are immediately met by our loved ones and will continue
to live in the afterlife dimension. Christian theology
was created a couple of thousand years ago when no one
really knew anything about science. These days empiricism
is giving us VALIDATION about what to accept as admissible
evidence for the afterlife and what happens to us when
we die. We are living to-day in an age where objectivity
and repeatability are removing blind faith, beliefs and
subjectivity. People in the West used to accept Christian
theology which had become part of mainstream culture without
question. But not anymore. People are asking questions
about what is relevant, what is the truth, what is objective,
what is repeatable and empirical and scientific. We have
made huge progress and this information at last is penetrating
mainstream thought. Easter, therefore should be a celebration
that ALL people – theists, atheists, believers,
materialists, scientists, religionists – everyone
will be resurrected immediately after physical death –
guaranteed! And that’s good news for all honest,
decent and open-minded people on Earth.
EASTER – BELIEFS
and BLIND FAITH vs EMPIRICAL VALIDATION.
Keep your beliefs – I am
NOT interested in changing
your beliefs except to the extent that they contradict
empirical evidence. It may surprise many people, that
there is no direct evidence that Jesus was crucified or
crucified in the way we have been told. I am an empiricist
– my conclusions have to be based on hard core evidence.
What we have heard about Jesus is to a certain extent
hearsay – what somebody said about what happened
to somebody. That would not be admissible in a court of
law. The only independent evidence comes from the non
Christian, Jewish historian Josephus
– writing many years after Jesus’ death. One
of the problems we have these days is the amount of changes
that have been made to the Bible as evidenced by highly
credible writers and researchers – e.g. former priest
De Rosa, former Catholic priest Johannes
Greber and the most impressive transmissions from
the afterlife by the former Monsignor Hugh Benson (the
Anthony Borgia books) – and other experts in the
history of the Bible. Arthur Findlay in his book THE
ROCK OF TRUTH reveals much about how Christian religion
evolved – and states that there is nothing original
in Christianity. Judge for yourselves. Some devout Christians
may find this rather disturbing – but the search
for truth rises above history, culture and tradition.
WHAT ABOUT JESUS?
The following passage comes from Monsignor Hugh
a distinguished priest while alive, speaking through the
mediumship of Anthony Borgia published in the book Heaven
and Earth (1948).
"The great founder of Christianity, so-called,
was not the least interested in founding any Church. In
good truth, he founded no Church in spite of the alleged
references to 'my' Church. He had no intention of establishing
Church or Chapel nor any other form of religious organization.
He came to give simple teaching to simple folk, showing
them how to live their lives on earth, and how to behave
towards their neighbors.
He told them that the God of wrath, as they understood
Him to be, was indeed no God of wrath at all, but the
Father of all love. He told his hearers that death of
the physical body was not the end of all things, but the
real beginning of life, a new life in the immense world
of the spirit. He told them that such gifts as he possessed
and demonstrated, of healing the sick and speaking spiritual
truths, were not mystical or magical gifts, nor were they
operated through the power of the devil, but that they
were natural gifts which they could themselves develop
and use in the service of their fellows, if they went
about it in the right way." Read
YOUR ETERNAL SELF
a treasure my colleague R. Craig Hogan, Ph.D., has created.
You can read his new book Your Eternal Self online
on his website which is complementary to and builds the
research on this website. His highly recommended book
is essential reading for anone interested in the Afterlife.

WHAT DOES HAPPEN WHEN YOU DIE?
A HUGE thank you to Sophie-Anne Perkins from Canada who
translated my Chapter on
What Happens When you Die for our French readers.
For those of you who don't read French check out R. Craig
Hogan's Chapter 9
"What are the Facts about the Afterlife"
here and choose Chapter 9.
And also look at his additional
material on Chapter 9
QUESTION: So why is it that so
many people are terrified of death?
Victor: That came about because for centuries
religious leaders had a monopoly on information about
the afterlife and
they associated death with enormous fear – of eternal
punishment. Some years ago, if you were a Catholic and
ate meat on Friday, you would be committing a grave "mortal"
sin- punishable by eternal damnation if you died without
confessing and bering given forgiveness! That means if
you knowingly ate a ham sandwich on a Friday and died,
according to the Church you were in big trouble!!! Death
was directly associated with hellfire for you for eternity!
For over sixteen hundred years in the West, the Church
had a monopoly on information. It was only with the development
of printing, books and understanding of scientific method
that they were able to evolve from fear and superstition.
I have come across people in many parts of the world these
days who showed they are still terrified of death –
something which, according to highly credible afterlife
teachers, should be the most ecstatic experience on earth.
LOST TRANSCRIPTS OF HELEN DUNCAN
month's issue of Zerdin Phenomenal contains a fascinating
report on a seance with famous British materialization
medium Helen Duncan held on 10th July 1951. The transcripts
were written by a Cecil Kennett, a businessman, artist
and writer who was initially highly skeptical about physical
mediumship. He describes how he witnessed a large number
of materialized forms in dim red light, how they talked
to and were recognized by their loved ones and how from
normal height they sank rapidly to the floor and dissolved
when their visit ended. One of those who materialized
had dies only a few days earlier. Fascinating reading...

CULTURAL GENOCIDE IN TIBET? “LET
MY PEOPLE GO – TO GOVERN THEMSELVES!”
nearly 50 years of Chinese rule, the Tibetans are sending
out a global cry for change. But violence is spreading
across Tibet and neighboring regions, and the Chinese
regime is right now considering a choice between increasing
brutality or dialogue, that could determine the future
of Tibet and China. We
can affect this historic choice. China does care about
its international reputation. Its economy is totally dependent
on "Made in China" exports that we all buy,
and it is keen to make the Olympics in Beijing this summer
a celebration of a new China that is a respected world
DO WE HAVE A SPIRITUAL RESPONSIBILITY TO
TAKE CARE OF PLANET EARTH?
JAPAN’S OUTRAGE AT KANGAROO CULL: IS IT HYPOCRISY
PUSHED TO EXTREME? YOU BE THE JUDGE: Onthe
one hand Japan is slaughtering whales which are in real
danger of extinction. Australia is protesting against
Japan for this unnecessary slaughter. Balanced against
this is the Australian government's consent to kill some
500 gray kangaroos in an area which, we are informed,
is needed for luxury homes. We, as people of the world
do have a spiritual responsibility
to take care of our planet Earth and its inhabitants –
and to minimize and any unnecessary cruelty and slaughter
of humans and animals. Animals feel pain as much as humans
do. My own view is that the Australian government should
move the kangaroos to a safer place – really a simple
answer. Japan is also doing wrong by obliterating whales
from this planet earth. What do you think ? Read
HUMOR - 'GRUBBIE' OF
THE WEEK: Why do you think that J. Randi calls any decent,
honest person who asks for clarification about his alleged
challenge a ‘grubbie’? I am a most sensitive
female and that kind of talk disgusts me. Ms Minx T.,
Victor: Good question
Ms. Minx! This rude man should apologize to you for hurting
your feelings. Psychologists would
argue that Randi is ‘PROJECTING’ and attributing
on to others what he himself is – a ‘grubbie’
– yes, is in fact he’s calling himself a ‘grubbie’
– people think that’s a perfect description
of this guy. Without doubt, you will find that Randi himself
has all these negative ‘attributes’ he calls
others. Guaranteed Ms Minx, so sensitive as you may be,
one day this rude man will refine and will be able to
communicate in an intelligent, reasonable way without
negative qualifications. But it may take a few lifetimes!!!
Keep your collar on sensitive Ms Minx, you’re way
ahead of this rude 'grubbie'.

must give yourself at least around
15 minutes to watch it. Watch this magnificent video with
an open mind – BUT you must relax at the same time.
Do not be impatient - do not rush it. Sit down and relax!
This is about who we really are. This is also about spiritual
enlightenment – it explains and informs about your
role on planet earth. Make the time to learn more about
yourself and ultimately where you inevitably will be going.

CRITICAL - THERE
IS NO SUCH THING AS SUPER-PSI TO EXPLAIN THE PARANORMAL.
Whenever there is an
inconsistency between scientific method and philosophy
or theology or any subjective phenomena, inevitably, scientific
method prevails - and will always prevail. Why? No lawyer
who ever submitted relevant evidence which is repeatable
and objective ever lost a case. Because anything which
can be demonstrated and is repeated over time and space
and yields the same results, keeping variables constant
using scientific method there is objectivity and repeatability.
Now with anything subjective – that CAN NEVER BE
DONE! So that when someone says, “Oh,
John Sloan’s or Leslie Flint’s or Mrs Piper’s
mediumship can be explained by super-esp – meaning
that these mediums got in touch with "Cosmic Consciousness"
or "the Universal Memory" that would be absolutely
meaningless. Why? If anyone claims there is some Cosmic
Memory or some universal Unconscious collective memory,
then that someone has to empirically prove there is such
thing AND that the medium is actually accessing it.
It is preposterous in the extreme to attribute the
medium’s skills to this super psi invented by someone
who could not rebut the existing hard core evidence for
the afterlife but in frustration stated – well if
everything else failed, then it must be super-psi to explain
the medium’s excellent results! The
super-esp hypothesis is NOT accepted as objective evidence
which means the super-esp evidence has to yield to the
objectivity and repeatability of empiricism. As Montague
Keen, who was an afterlife investigator for the Society
for Psychical Research stated in relation to super-psi,
“I do not say the super-psi hypothesis is impossible,
but that it stretches improbability beyond my credulity
when a simpler, more obvious and more consistent alternative
presents itself, one which has a great deal of supporting
buttresses in the literature of psychical research.”
In other words, totally forget about super-psi explanations
and accept what the medium stated where the afterlife
information is coming from.
"I LOVE YOU"
IS NOT SCIENTIFICALLY BASED – THEREFORE IT DOES
NOT EXIST? THE POWER OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE Whilst
we have hard core science
and repeatable empirical results for the existence of
the afterlife, we must never forget that there is also
a very important and powerful subjective evidence for
the afterlife – the EXPERIENTIAL, i.e. the actual
personal experience of the paranormal of the individual.
For most people these experiences are the most persuasive
evidence for the afterlife. These ‘experiences’
are not quite objective – but that does not mean
they do not happen. When Sally tells her partner Joe,
“I love you” does it mean that Sally does
not love Joe because she cannot prove it? WRONG! The experiential
evidence for the afterlife is very powerful – hundreds
of millions around the world have experienced the paranormal
and more and more people are coming out in the open to
tell the world of their experiences. Because people are
coming out with their paranormal experiences – people
know they are on the winning side – absolutely!
Slowly, steadily, surely and inevitably, this kind of
experiential afterlife evidence is accelerating the accepting
of the paranormal in mainstream thought.
FRUAD BY A CATHOLIC
PRIEST: Not only skeptics commit fraud
. In Sydney A PARISH priest
who lied to his flock about having cancer used money they
gave him to help pay for a trip to Lourdes for a "miracle
cure". When Father Richard Abourjaily's lies about
having prostate cancer were uncovered he was condemned
as "delusional" by the head of the Catholic
Church, Cardinal George Pell, and suspended from his duties
at All Hallows Parish Church at Five Dock in Sydney's
inner west. Parishioners have been left bewildered and
hurt by the actions of the 29-year-old priest they welcomed
into their hearts and homes when he was ordained last
year. Parishioner Pina Biazzo, whose nieces were in Father
Abourjaily's Youth Alive group, said: "We all believed
he had prostate cancer. Read more … "We just
thought he was having a tough time and that he wasn't
going to make it. Everyone loved him." Read
QUESTION: NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE: In a
near death experience, is it true that something comes
out of the physical body and sees the doctors operating
on the body, hears instructions to nurses and sees also
the bright white light? Is it true that sometimes relatives
are seen – and sometimes these relatives communicate?
VICTOR: The best case
I can quote is the Pam Reynolds case. What came out of
Pam’s physical body was theduplicate
of the physical body – a ‘spirit body’
which would be vibrating much faster than the ‘physical’
body. This spirit body is what comes out of the physical
body at the time of crossing over – where it will
continue to live in the afterlife dimension. This patient
was put to clinical death for over an hour and her brain
was absolutely dead – she was ‘flat-lined’
for an hour. Note very carefully, the physical brain cannot
operate when the physical body is clinically dead. What
was operating for Pam to remember every detail was her
‘MIND.’ The mind retains all memories –
even when we cross over. Her ‘spirit body’
still had a vivid a near death experience. She actually
saw and heard the operating medical specialist giving
instructions to his assistants; she saw the bright white
light and she met her relatives. Pam saw her grand-mother,
her uncle and other loved ones who had crossed over. Five
of the most eminent cardiac and medical specialists including
Dr Sam Parnia, Dr Van Lommel, Dr Robert Spetzler –
also Dr Peter Fenwick and Dr Michael Sabom – all
supported Pam’s stated experience during her clinical
‘death’ – stating ‘what she saw
corresponded to what actually happened.’ No cardiologist,
no heart specialist, no brain surgeon, no surgeon, no
‘hands on’ medical specialist has said anything
to contradict the abovementioned eminent specialists,
Dr Sam Parnia & others. A DVD was made about this
most stunning NDE – called THE
DAY I DIED. Here is a viewing
guide to the program.
LISTEN TO FIRST-HAND NDE EXPERIENCERS
IANDS now has a page of links to audios and videos
made by NDE experiencers.Some of these NDE accounts were
recorded at various IANDS sponsored events; others are
from the news media. A few derive from other sources.
Researcher Kenneth Ring found that watching first hand
accounts by people who had near death experiences significantly
reduced fear of death. Watch
THIRD AND LAST WEEK - NEXT WEEK
THE RESULTS! : THE RACE IS ON! HAVE YOU YOUR SAY! HILLARY
OR OBAMA? First two weeks
were very interesting – quite a number of people
will be published next week. I would like some ten (preferably
20) mediums or psychics to predict who is going to win
nomination and who is going to be elected President of
the United States. I am also asking others who make no
claim to psychic or mediumistic skills at all to predict
who are going to be the winners as above requested. Then
we can compare the results. Interested? Email Victor...firstname.lastname@example.org
OCCAM'S RAZOR is
a two edged sword. What is his razor? It is a logical
tool used by William of Ockham (died 1349) to cut absurdities
out of arguments and philosophical systems. According
to Ockham, the simpler an explanation is, the more preferable
it ultimately is. In other words, if it is not necessary
to introduce certain complexities or hypotheticals into
a situation or explanation, then don’t do it. But
nowhere does Ockham assert that the simpler explanation
is always more correct or that the more complex explanation
is always less correct. Had he done so, he would have
been mistaken and remembered quite differently. The point
is to start from the simplest possible explanation and
only make it more complex when absolutely necessary.
Skeptics have used Occam’s razor to rebut the paranormal.
But paranormalists have used Occam’s razor to support
the paranormal. If any skeptic confronts you with this
principle tell the skeptic the principle is irrelevant,
immaterial and unacceptable - and that it explains nothing.
Why not? Because first there has to be an agreement
as to what information/knowledge are both opposing parties
prepared to include. Another fallacy when using this principle
– a very simple example: we see the sun rises from
the East in the morning and sets in the West. The simplest
solution is that the sun moves from East to West –
WRONG – the sun does not move, the earth does.
POPULAR QUESTION: what will
happen to those hard line skeptics and materialists when
they cross over?
Victor: That would on
what kind of a life they lived. The New Science these
days is telling us specifically what happens when a person
dies. If anyone is into dishonesty, cheating,
selfishness and cruelty – mental or otherwise, that
person could have grave problems when he/she crosses over.
Everything we do has an effect on the vibrations of our
spirit body. The opposite is that if you are the average
decent person – you do not have to be perfect –
on crossing over, keeping an open mind – you will
YOU BE THE JUDGE! MOST IMPRESSIVE
RESPONSE from the last two weeks DO YOU HAVE AN EYE FOR
ANYONE TRYING TO CHEAT? YOU BE THE JUDGE! There
was an overwhelming response: ALL claiming Randi WAS cheating!
There was not one person who wanted to defend J Randi.
That speaks volumes. It shows people CAN discriminate.
People do have the discerning power when they see someone
trying to bend a key on the chair trying to fool the viewers.
I did not make it up. I did not tell you how to vote on
it. You, I invited, be the judge of this man who says
he could duplicate Uri Geller's key bending phenomenon.
The huge number of replies all claiming that J Randi is
cheating shows that this guy does not have any credibility.
