"I anticipate that the future of psychical research lies with revolutions in the physical sciences, not with psychology." Professor John Poynton: President of the Society for Psychical Research.
To Stephen Cox: Executive Secretary of The Royal Society.
This statement from the current President of the SPR, together with the recent report in the New Scientist about bringing back the ether, completely vindicates the former President of the Royal Society - Sir William Crookes. Please refer to the "Quarterly Journal of Science" July 1st, 1871:
"Experimental Investigation of a New Force"
Further to your letter to me dated 17 December 2004, things are now getting very exciting on the scientific front with regard to providing a rational explanation for why our ancestors invented all the divisive religions.
Everything now rests with The Royal Society abandoning their 17th century pact with the Vatican never to make a study of forces in the universe that are beyond our five physical senses - so-called spiritual matters.
All the religious killing will stop when people find out they are only fighting over supernatural mythology invented by priests who knew nothing about cosmology. The paradox is that the religionists are basically correct, we do possess a soul that separates from the dead physical body.
It's the materialists who are desperately wrong, orthodox scientific teaching that starts from the false base that the mind and brain are the same - that death is the end of everything.
Supernormal Phenomena: "I strongly applaud your statement that, if such phenomena were demonstrated to exist, they would not be supernatural but natural."
Professor Richard Dawkins, letter dated 22nd January 1992
