As I replied this morning to a good friend, and a highly thought of colleague, from Indiana in the United States. I was hit with a few realisations with regards to how people think, and what may hold back good proper research and discovery in the paranormal field.
The above-mentioned friend – who is Chris Ratliff from Paranormal Ghost Research Indiana – was very balanced in his thinking towards a piece of software I use, open enough to understand but certainly not swayed till he has experience of such, and can see some building evidence.
Often in circles, relating to pseudo-scepticism and blatant cynicism, with regards to paranormal events, we’ve members who are all too happy to name drop individuals as some type of proof about their rigid belief systems.
Many have even tried to emanate said big names, in the search of big dollars and lots of publicity for their materialist aims in life. Not forgetting massive fame and media performances to boot…
The hardest thing for any person to admit to themselves is that they have been manipulated and fed false information. People would rather defend the person doing the manipulation, than face the prospect that they had been conned or made a fool of by others.
This is key to the false perspective adopted by cynics and know-it-alls who in all reality know nothing. In order to push forward their fundamental beliefs, they must attack anything that contradicts their stance and what better way than RIDICULE!
Tell it how it is Ryan, get the pad open and start writing in response to more Pseudo-Sceptical propaganda and flawed interpretations. This is what was ringing in my ears this morning, most likely in reply to what I had read last night before retiring to bed. You see, I had just read an article in The Daily Express, in regards to Why science is taking near-death experiences seriously and was immediately hit with our old friend Dr. Susan Blackmore and more misleading information.
If you are going to put yourself out there, as in producing videos for sites such as Youtube, you need to be prepared to have your work critiqued. This is why at the bottom of nearly every single article I produce, I ask people to leave their comments or constructive criticism.
In this short article, I am going to talk about a video I have just viewed a few times in regards to proof, that Near Death Experiences are just the reaction of brain chemicals and being dismissed by scientific studies. DeityFree Dee seems to have it all figured out on her Youtube channel and this amazes me, as I am nowhere near figuring it out after 9 years of active research and study.
