WHY THE ATHEISTS’ RATIONALE
AGAINST THE ‘FIRST CAUSE’ IS WRONG:
I was doing some reading last night and came across
a book by David Mills - 'The Atheist Universe'. Mills
was trying to rebut the existence of ‘God’on
behalf of the atheists.
But when tackling the Thomas Aquinas’ argument
that ‘God’ is the first Cause, Mills said,
“if everything except God requires a cause, then
the ‘First Cause’ argument becomes …
logically impermissible.” Wrong!
1. Thomas Aquinas
entered into evidence a legitimate ‘qualified’
statement to the argument of Cause and Effect: that
‘God WAS the First Cause’. 2. Directly linked to
this is the fact that an ‘intelligent’ effect
had to have had an ‘intelligent’ cause,
i.e. GRAVITY is an 'intelligent' energy effect which
had to come from an ‘intelligent’ cause.
You can't have 'gravity' without energy. 3.Order in the universe,
an ‘intelligent’ effect had to have an intelligent
cause. Gravity plays a huge part in producing order
in the universe. If there is 'order', there has to be
intelligent design.. 4. The power, the
force, the energy which generates evolution is an intelligently-designed
effect … 5. The process of
‘growth’ anywhere, is an intelligent effect
from an intelligent cause – has to be! 6. The perfection
of the structure of an atom is an intelligent effect
from an intelligent cause. And there are thousands of
other examples of intelligent effects which had to come
from an intelligent cause. Nature on its own is not
intelligent. 7. Every intelligent effect
mentioned above has energy for its sustenance and maintenance.There
is energy in the evolution-process. Whilst energy cannot
be destroyed - energy can be transformed. 'Intelligent
effects' are intelligently- -designed energy. Some experts
say that the activity of energy had no beginning, it
will be modified over time in many ways but it will
have not end. 'Chance' does not and cannot explain 'order'
in the universe. 8. Scientific observation of 'consciousness'.
Scientists - such as Profs. Aspect, Dalibard, Roger
and even Dr.David Bohm claim that the universe has 'consciousness'.
If there is consciousness there inevitably is energy
- because you cannot have consciousness without energy.
Everything in the universe - and on planet Earth is
' intelligently -designed energy.'
There are those who argue that the power/order
behind the universe's intelligent-designed energy is
the First Cause - 'God.' 9. Implied in Mills' argument that
the thousands and millions of intelligent effects we
can observe ourselves came about by ‘chance’.
That is not acceptable and can never be acceptable. 10. Statisticians
will tell you 'NO' - ‘You can't use 'chance' as
a reasonable explanation for a cumulative succession
of things, each with a one in a billion billion probability
of coming by chance. Chance’ alone will not and
cannot explain 'intelligent effects.'
This does NOT mean that 'God' is the traditional religious
God - and someone with a long white beard in the sky
'controlling traffic' on Earth. . .Accordingly, the
atheists' argument against the First Cause can never
be accepted in logic, in professional debate and in
science. The 'First Cause' adequately
explains the existence of a 'POWER' people call 'God.'
SCIENCE AND THE AFTERLIFE: PHYSICIST
AND OBE RESEARCHER DR TOM CAMPBELL
Thomas Campbell, began researching altered states
of consciousness in the early 1970’s with Robert
Monroe, founder of The Monroe Institute. He helped set
up the lab and preformed experiments leading to a fundamental
scientific understanding of out-of-body experiences.
His trilogy of books called My
Big T.O.E. presents a scientific model of existence
and reality is based directly on Campbell's research
and first- hand experience.
MAGNIFICENT FEEDBACK ON DAVID THOMPSON'S MEDIUMSHIP:
I received most favorable responses
about David Thompson's mediumship when he was in Florida
recently. I also came across
other brilliant positive responses about David's exceptional
mediumship skills. So many people from different countries
have given brilliant feedback about David's physical
and materialization mediumship. David is regarded by
those who email me as the best known physical medium
in the world to-day. The magnificent work, the brilliant
results, the wonderful reunions taking place in his
seances in different parts of the world have made a
huge impact on many people who communicated directly
with their crossed over loved ones. I distinctly remember
when we were in Auckland, in New Zealand, that my own
father-in-law materialized and had a conversation with
his daughter, my partner Wendy. He also pressed into
her hand a piece of paper that he had signed- his signature
was later confirmed. Nobody in that room knew Wendy's
maiden name or anything about her relationship with
her father. Things came through that even I did not
know after nearly 40 years together with Wendy. Absolutely
brilliant work David, keep it up!
when you DIE? Is the afterlife –
the place where you will inevitably be going - the same
as on earth – where people with different
spiritual development live and mix together?
No, absolutely NOT said Silver Birch – a highly
credible afterlife intelligence, “You take with
you just that character which you have moulded by your
life. Your eternal possessions are the spiritual qualities
that you have evolved by your daily life. That is why
the law is so fair and so just, for it provides a standard
of judgment about which no reasonable man could quarrel
… your associates are those of LIKE spiritual
growth and LIKE spiritual mentality …Here you
are apparently on the same physical plane, meeting and
mingling with people who are on different mental (spiritual)
planes to yourself. In our world you are with those
who are on the SAME spiritual altitude as yourself.
That does not mean to say that you cannot hear famous
musicians, but your life is lived amongst your spiritual
equals, and that is determined by the law of spiritual
gravitation which is infallible.”

ALEC HARRIS- The Full Story
of His Remarkable Physical Mediumship
"The wonderful book about
famous medium, Alec Harris, who died 1974, has been
printed in its full version for the first time. An extremely
abbreviated version of about 40% was produced in 1980,
but now the full book is available from a number of
sources including: Amazon.co.uk
for $18. The new book also has a few photographs and
some sketches undertaken by Alec of the Spirit Guides.
I have attached a copy of the front cover of the book
to this email.

MIKE TYMN ON ECTOPLASM
researcher Mike Tymn is the author of a very scholarly
Articulate Dead which examines several of the best
mediums of yesteryear and the scientific research surrounding
them. A number of very intriguing stories unfold, including
spirits directing an archaeologist in the uncovering
of the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, spirits leading a
researcher to crosses buried by American Indians, a
deceased author completing his books through a medium,
a Titanic victim coming back to tell about his new environment,
and an afterlife researcher continuing his work after
dying, to name just a few. A GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENT
FOR THE THINKING READER.
In his blog this week where he continues his fascinating
exploration of the ideoplastic nature of materialization
and includes pictures taken of partial and completed
materialization taken under infra-red light. Read
was a very interesting article you had on Prof Richard
Dawkins. Why do you think he uses Darwin's evolution
to promote his atheism .. seems unfair. Any views?
my point: Dawkins is using evolution to support his
personal beliefs. But Darwin never stated that evolution
is an argument against the afterlife or against the
paranormal or against God. Dawkins thinks he can fool
people by selecting only the evidence from evolution
which supports his atheism and his anti-afterlife and
anti-paranormal. He ignored the most critical evidence
- evidence which will show he is wrong. I now add another
reason why Dawkins is wrong: scientists - Profs. Aspect,
Dabister, Roger and even Dr David Bohm now are stating
that electrons and subatomic particles have consciousness.
This is very important because that would mean that
if the atoms have and can relate consciousness to other
atoms, then one can say our Earth, our solar system,
the whole universe has 'consciousness'. A legitimate
conclusion is that if there is consciousness, there
is 'vibrating energy' - which means all the universe
is really vibrating energy. If that is the case, then
there has to be 'connection' with everything- then time
and space would be irrelevant. Conclusion: energy, which
no one can create or destroy but transform had no beginning
and will have no end. Something to think about and something
that has huge consequences to our re-thinking about
how the universe started. My view, which would demolish
Dawkins' thinking, is that the universe is a continuous
BRITISH POLICE ALLEGE A PSYCHIC MILSED THEM:
A reader sent a link to an article where British police
complained that they had spend a huge amount of time
and effort following clues from a psychic that ultimately
turned out to be false. To assess the matter with true
judicial balance, what has
to be ascertained first are the answers to the following
questions: This is because it appears the police did
not handle the matter professionally. Also, when the
police do not give details of the medium, there will
inevitably be suspicion something has been concocted
for reasons we do not know: We want to hear to psychics'
version of events:
1. Which psychic are the police talking
about – everything should be transparent. Those
so called psychic/s should be identified. 2, Did these psychics have a successful
track record of identifying criminals? 3. What evidence was there to show
the psychics were genuine, were skilful, were reliable? 4 Was the advice to the police qualified
in anyway and were the leads clear, vague, symbolic? 5. Who interpreted the leads, the psychics
or the police? 6. Was the police officer in charge
had experience dealing with psychics? 7. Was any attempt made by the police
before money was spent on the information given to check
with other psychics?
THEY DIE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALISTS
GRAHAM and others who deeply believe that on crossing
over Jesus will be there to meet them OR that according
to the Bible they will go to sleep until they hear Gabriel's
trumpet wake them up to join Jesus? (Fred F. Stanmore)
Victor: According to
highly credible relatively recently transmitted information
from the other side - including the information transmitted
by an ex-Catholic Mons. Hugh Benson from the afterlife
- (see all ANTHONY
BORGIA books) - those Christians with an open mind
will have normal transmission to the realm of the Light.
BUT some Christians with a powerfully strong belief
that Jesus will be there in person to meet them or that
go into a deep ‘sleep’ until Gabriel wakes
them up could find themselves in big trouble for eons
of time. Those hard core Fundamentalists, such as Billy
Graham and others like him, with fixed inflexible and
rigid ideas are likely to also get caught in a ‘hollow
heaven’ – a place in the afterlife exclusively
for them – thinking they are the only ones in
‘heaven’. Information transmitted from the
afterlife says that they even have Christian services
in the afterlife as they had them when on earth, there
in heaven!!! Rescue teams visit these place to try to
help these Christians caught in the ‘hollow heaven’,
but those Christians with deeply entrenched beliefs
are likely to stay in that condition for eons of time
– hundreds even thousands of years. William –
David Thompson’s guide, directly from the afterlife
confirms the 'hollow' heaven/deep sleep explanation
of those with deep entrenched, obstinate beliefs. We
are also told that sometimes members of the rescue teams
take it in turns to play Jesus or Moses or Muhammad
for those coming over to help them to move on to the
realm of the Light and Realization. Read out-of-body
explorer Bruce Moen's experiences of a 'hollow
AN INTERESTING WEBSITE
John W. Sloat writes " I am a former
Presbyterian minister who served the Christian church
for over forty years. Yet, I am now convinced that organized
religion is not the final truth in our search for God.
Rather, it is the grammar school of faith, an important
stage in our spiritual education but one from which
we must eventually graduate.

JAMES VAN PRAAGH - one of the
most important mediums
in the world to-day recently sent his regards to me
and to those who read these reports through Dr Ken S.
He was in Australia some time ago - and was extremely
popular, with people attending his sessions coming from
most states in Australia. His television shows where
he exhibits his brilliant mediumship are still being
shown on cable television. We will contact him again
and ask him when he will be visiting Australia again.
SERIOUS CONCERNS SWINE FLU VACCINATION
IS NOT SAFE: I received
regarding swine flu vaccination. Some of those who email
seem to be horrifically frightened about vaccination
against the swine flu. My view is that I will only be
vaccinated if there is a real need and if the vaccination
is 100% safe. According to the following report the
current vaccinations are not safe.
Ricardo writes: " Testing the vaccination on four
small animals – all died in Czechoslovakia …
see for yourself: either read the gist of the report
or listen to this short video by a doctor of public
medicine who has become a nun and is living in a monastery
in Spain. Her talk is in Spanish with English subtitles.
She's a bit long winded, but she is very thorough, very
specific and very admirable in her no-nonsense approach
to what is revealing itself to be an outrageous fraud
being perpetrated by the World Health Organization,
the pharmaceutical industry, the news media, and so-called
"governments" around the world.…http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/735.html

VICTOR'S CRITIC?(some humor)
: I received an email which showed that
some spiritually unevolved person who does
not have the moral courage of his convictions to write
under his own name is trying to be sarcastic and vindictive
on the internet at my expense. He is someone who is
uninformed, is not an author, not a scholar, has no
record of any achievements or professional experience.
Many also see him as a behind-the-scenes mischievous
trouble-maker. So ....... I do NOT deal with COWARDS!
If anyone wants to say anything to me or about
me, have the courage to write under YOUR OWN name -
and write your address too. Too COWARDLY? Not enough
character? Too WEAK in personality? Just disappear and
leave us to be of service to the world community.

INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC EVER! A very special
request by a special, dear friend. Hear the magnificent
voice of Tom Jones -
singing with so much power, inspiration and feeling,
one of the most inspirational songs - and lyrics I have
ever heard in my life:
TheImpossible Dream -"This
song reminds me of you Victor" A.F. (sent the youtube
and the lyrics)
Thank you A.F for the suggestion!!
THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM
To dream the impossible dream
To fight the beatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause
And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable stars
