I have stated several times that my purpose is to reach out to those people who have lost their beliefs and do not dare to come out of the closet because of the societal environment they live in. There are many of them. (see a previous Blog).
It is curious that “believers” think that I am trying to convert them, just like the many religious people who try to convert others. I am NOT! Believe what you want. If the thought of an afterlife in heaven makes you happy, by all means believe! If you spend your money on an astrologer to guide your life’s decisions, it is no concern of mine. But if you have concluded that the supernatural does not exists (until proven in un-partial repeatable scientific research, then it is not “super” anymore but just “natural”) and you feel uncomfortable in today’s society, this website and blog might help to make one feel one is not alone. I have found that there are many people like that. That’s my goal.
Let me also explain what I mean with “discussion” of the subject. In my page on “Life after Death” I reasoned that science has proven without a doubt that awareness stops when the brain dies. If you can quote one reliable repeatable scientific research (not wild theories or speculations about mysterious black matter or hallucinations for example) that there is awareness after the brain dies, let me know. If you can proof that the position of the stars, when you were born, decides your personality and spells out your future, tell me.
However I don’t want to discuss what you want to “believe” or not, after all one can believe anything that one can think of or that other people have dreamed up. I hope you see the difference in what I mean by “discussing". It is impossible to change the mind of a firm believer and I will not try that but I only hope to help those who question and doubt the beliefs they grew up in.
