    Is Hypnosis Credible?

    I guess it depends what you mean by "works". If you mean for recall of past lives and recovering memories I can't comment but from experience I would say it does therapeutically and it doesn't seem to matter how sceptical the client is. That's not to say a person cannot resist it if they decide to.

    I don’t listen to podcasts in general very often (no particular reason) but I found this one very interesting. Thank you.

    You want to do a “great work”. Why?

    Sounds pretty self-focused - no offence.

    Dr. Michael Shermer on Near-Death Experience Science |379|

    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Even in normal day to day living it seems to me there are masses of things we see but don’t remember because they are not relevant to us at the time or aren’t striking. Evidential NDEs being reported and validated are quite rare so expecting...

    My Review of "The Myth of an Afterlife"

    The evidence for an afterlife, as I’m sure you appreciate, is much much broader than NDEs. I appreciate you’re playing Devils Advocate. I agree that materialism being wrong doesn’t imply an afterlife. The absence of apparent memories (except for NDEs and OBEs) when we are anaesthetised though...

    My Review of "The Myth of an Afterlife"

    It might be an argument against survival if considered in isolation but then there is the body of evidence supporting survival to dismiss. Looking at a very narrow issue like this gives an easy answer but only if we ignore the full picture.

    Aw that’s sad news (though I suppose not given his view on survival). I liked GLP. The Radio 4 programme was very interesting.

    Me neither. I don’t recall seeing this but I could be because it’s been on threads that don’t attract me, or selective memory.

    Dr. Rupert Sheldrake Brings Science to Spiritual Practices |376|

    I think for me it’s when chunks of it started to going missing, seemingly arbitrarily. There didn’t seem much point posting things that might either be moved around or disappear like the staircases at Hoggwarts. I can’t say I ever suffered any of the undue moderation others report however...

    Dr. Dean Radin Brings Real Magic to the Psi Lab |377|

    That looks like a catholic declaration of Christian faith. Probably quite a lot of people who profess to be Christians would accept most of it. However If you really think that’s definitive for Christianity then your education on the subject is sadly lacking and maybe you should consider doing a...

    Your understanding of Christianity seems very simplistic David (speaking as a non Christian).

    They don’t always choose to come back from what I read, sometimes it appears they are compelled, sometimes persuaded.

    You’re not proposing decapitation as a cure for depression are you?

    Well perhaps it’s worth thinking about that. Good luck.

    I need some help!

    Well it’s as good a place to start as any. What would you consider good physical evidence of survival?
