The Scientific and Rationalist Case for Life After Death

The philosopher Arthur Schoepenhauer wrote:

“Any unexplained phenomenon passes through three stages before the reality of it is accepted: During the first stage it is considered laughable. During the second stage, it is adamantly opposed. Finally, during the third stage, it is accepted as self-evident.”

So, where are we today with all things paranormal? I believe we are between the second and third stages. The paranormal, or many aspects of it are no longer an anomaly.

There is too much talk of paranormal phenomena on the tv, in the papers and certainly on the internet for people to consider the idea of unexplained phenomena as being laughable. I hope we would all agree that we have left the first stage behind.

So, are we seeing parapsychological experiences and more importantly, those who experience them, being laughed at? I don’t think so at least not in the public domain. That is to to say that experients are still not hiding their secrets away. I think that is still the sad fact of life for  a lot of people – especially those who are not paranormal consultants.

Is the existence of the paranormal still upsetting “the establishment of the day”? So, is it true to say, as Adrian Berry, Science writer for the UK paper, The Daily Telegraph has put on record:

“Few subjects more infuriate scientists than claims of paranormal phenomena because, if confirmed, the whole fabric of science would be threatened.”

Of course it is true. Science is holding on by its finger nails to many of its long held, outdated facts that are fast becoming beliefs rather than truth.

Surely, the denial of the existence of the paranormal is one of the greatest cover ups of all time. Why is it allowed to continue?
