SUBJECT: Brigitte on "nonsense claims of materializations"
COMPARED to Brigitte on survival
In one of your recent emails you write of the
"nonsense claims of materializations."
Elsewhere you write:
". . . I am indeed interested to see Daniel to show
the results of tests done on private individuals under
modern laboratory conditions where the person in
"1)Materializes and de-materializes objects as
Blavatsky is claimed to have done."
First of all, Brigitte, why do you label the claims of
materializations as "nonsense"? Nonsense in light of
what? As compared to what? Why are
"materializations" NONSENSE to you? I'm trying to
understand your thinking here.
You also seem to be saying that YOU will accept
evidence about materializations ONLY from valid tests
conducted under modern laboratory conditions.
Yet in another email, you write that:
". . . in my opinion there is enough scientific
evidence (see for example Dean I. Radin's work) to
prove the existence of psychic abilities. . . . [and]
probably some form of survival after death . . . . "
In contrast to what you think about materializations,
it would appear that "some form of survival after
death" makes SENSE to you. But what kind of evidence
do you accept for survival?
Will you ONLY accept evidence for survival that has
been obtained from test results in a modern laboratory
Are you telling us that there is NO valid evidence for
materializations that was obtained from tests in a
modern laboratory but that there IS valid evidence for
survival that was derived under modern laboratory
Some of my acquaintances who are scientists believe
that the claims about materializations as well as the
claims about survival after death are equally
Hoping you will provide some useful information.
