IANDS Conference Nears, Re-Examining Life After Death, Transit of Venus

Please remember the big IANDS conference this fall. Refer to their website at for more information.

Huffington Post is continuing their series of articles downplaying and outright attacking "near-death experiences." Their latest was an article by Victor Stenger, a physicist, who "proved" that any such research was wrong-headed. Unfortunately the facts he presented were superficial, incomplete, or incorrect. Refer to "Life After Death: Examining the Evidence"

Hope you safely watched the planet Venus pass between Earth and Sun on June 5 th. Won't happen again until later on in the next century!

In his article, Victor Stenger resorts to the classic "most likely" style of skeptical arguments against the validity of the transcendence of NDE's. Prefacing an argument with most likely is an expression of opinion, not fact.
It also pains me that he uses Jeffery Longs book, Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death-Experiences as an example of a scientific case for evidence. A much stronger case is presented by Chris Carter in his books Science and the Near-Death Experience: How Consciousness Survives Death, and Science and Psychic Phenomena: The Fall of the House of Skeptics. Also, you (PMH Atwater) present strong arguments for the transcendent validity of NDE's in your writings, as well.

I feel I must write: "Consider the source" in this case. Ariana Huffington, of Huffington Post, was in a questionable "cult",(& could still be) according to an older Vanity Fair magazine article. The cult was headed by a strange man, and the members of this group would try to sell, and did sell, precious stones to wealthy people who wer cult-member relatives . Perhaps if anyone wants to know more, the article from Vanity Fair about Ariana Huffington and Roger-something, can be found online. It is a shame that that publication has struck out in evil to sway the unknowing, rather than lead them to reading about NDE's. Blessings --
