E-mail from Michael Roll to Hugh Thomas, January 21, 2003

To fellow secularist Hugh Thomas who invited me to speak to his Bristol group.

Hugh,

So you are going to be a journalist. You will now find out that no Editor in the land would dare to publish the secular case for survival after death. Their Christian owners will not allow the public to find out that Professor Richard Dawkins of Oxford University is correct. Nothing is supernatural, if something happens then it must come under the laws of nature. Everything is natural and normal. If people find this out nobody will ever take any notice of a priest, mullah, rabbi or "holy" man again. Bush and Blair will have to go on their crusade all alone!

Mediums are now allowed to demonstrate on TV to millions. However, there is no way any scientific backup will be allowed through to the public in our "free" country. Even the Spiritualists have declared war on the scientific backup for mediumship that I am giving. For the same reason as the Vatican, they want to keep the whole thing as a one-god religion. Spiritualists worship in places called churches. They sing hymns under the sign of the cross and read from the Bible. They even say the Lord's Prayer! The Presidents of the Spiritualist churches have all become little men and women with power. It gives them a big buzz to have power over 20 people. "The congregation will now rise, the congregation will now sit." Arthur Findlay sure chose a good title for his book "The Curse of Ignorance".

The total destruction of the once scientifically minded Spiritualist movement is no mystery. Hundreds of thousands of people, intellectual atheists like my mother, have read Arthur Findlay's secular approach to the study of life after death. Every single one of them left the Spiritualist movement. This left it wide open to be taken over by refugees from Christianity. For example, if I heard that a first class medium had been booked to demonstrate in my local Spiritualist church I would not be able to go. There is no way I could take part in a religious service. The whole idea is absurd. Bit like a Jew going to a concentration camp for a big night out. The people who have hijacked the Spiritualist movement are exactly the same as Bush, Blair and bin Laden, they are absolutely convinced that the creator of the universe is on their side.

Michael

Time to Stand Up and Children must choose their own beliefs - two articles by Richard Dawkins

The Curse of Ignorance by Arthur Findlay (1947), published in two volumes, and details of some of Findlay's other works.

This is the true history of mankind, totally different to the pack of lies taught in a country where the Church and state are established. This passage sums up just how badly the British people have been deceived:

"Such, however, is still [the Church's] influence that this book, which tells the story of the past honestly and fearlessly, will be kept out of our schools and universities by the authorities, and consequently, only in later life will those with enquiring minds discover the truth."

Findlay finishes with a call to the people of the world to throw off the shackles of priestcraft, to make a choice between two paths:

"One is the Secular way (non religious) and the other is the Theological (religious); one is the Democratic and the other the Despotic; one is the sane and the other the insane."
