Scientific proof of survival after death has existed for over a century. The Campaign for Philosophical Freedom is working to increase public awareness of the existence of scientific proof that we all survive the death of our physical bodies - irrespective of religious beliefs.

 Challenge to Repeat the Arizona Experiments [Posted: July 31, 2002]

Chris Robinson is challenging the sceptics yet again in a bid to prove the existence of the so-called paranormal.

"I will predict the future live on TV in full public view. I challenge any so-called sceptic to repeat, live on TV, the 10 Arizona experiments I conducted with Prof. Gary Schwartz last year."

The Arizona experiments involved Robinson dreaming, on consecutive nights, about 10 secret locations that he and Schwartz would be taken to over a period of 10 days. The details of the locations were unknown to both Robinson and Schwartz, and were kept in California, randomly sorted in separate envelopes.

As part of the protocol, Robinson would record the contents of his dreams on paper the following morning. An envelope would then be opened in California, and Schwartz would be told for the first time where he and Robinson would be going for that particular day.

The results were extraordinary. In each experiment, Robinson gave specific details of the location, the process of travelling there, and even afterwards when the experiment had ended.

Schwartz, speaking on the Richard and Judy Show on June 11, said:

"If he had got even 5 correct locations, it would have been extraordinary. It just so happened that he was 'in the zone', so to speak, and very motivated, as I was, to push his talent to the extreme, that he was actually accurate 10 out of 10."

Robinson now challenges any sceptic to repeat these experiments live on national TV. This, he says, will prevent the sceptic from manipulating the experiments to give negative results, something which he has experienced in the past.

"I will either be right or wrong," says Robinson. "However, we will need to conduct a series of 10 experiments, otherwise the experimenter might explain away the results as mere coincidence."

Will any sceptic take on the challenge and repeat the Arizona experiments in full public view?

Will James Randi, Richard Wiseman et al be honest and brave enough to test Chris Robinson in a proper scientific manner?

E-mail from Michael Roll to the Producer of Tomorrow's World

In his e-mail, Michael Roll writes:

"You will see from the enclosed that there is another school of scientific thought, put forward by Cambridge University professors of physics, that disagrees with the conclusions of Dr. Richard Wiseman who has started from the base that the mind and the brain are the same. However, as things stand at the moment in what is meant to be a free country, only one of these expert opinions is actually reaching the public."

 Disestablishment of the Church of England [Posted: July 20, 2002]

Early day motions to disestablish the Church of England have been made by several MPs.

Early Day Motion 1190 (Disestablishment of the Church) reads:

"That this House disagrees with the statement made by the Archbishop of Canterbury that 'the severing of links between Church and State would lead to the collapse of civilised society' and that 'honesty, faithfulness, respect and love of neighbour would all be threatened if England abandoned its historic spiritual framework'; and notes that the Church has been disestablished in Wales for the most part of a century with no evidence of a collapse in the state or an increase in dishonesty, faithlessness, disrespect or hatred of neighbours when compared with England."

 TV Documentary in the UK [Posted: July 10, 2002]

At last it's no longer just hearsay that the KGB and CIA used mediums to spy on each other during the Cold War. At 11.30, Monday 8th July 2002, a documentary hit millions in the UK on ITV:

"Secret KGB Files"

Every person who has bothered to make a study of Joan of Arc knows very well she was a brilliant medium, especially the KGB and CIA. She used "dead" French patriots to feed her the British battle plans. If a general knows the enemies battle plans then the rest is easy.

 The Richard and Judy Show (June 11, 2002) [Posted: June 14 , 2002]
"I could have done with him in Northern Ireland."

These are the words of Dr. Mo Mowlam, the former Northern Ireland Secretary, speaking on the Richard and Judy Show on 11th June 2002.

The dream detective Chris Robinson had just caused a sensation by proving that he had done exactly the same thing as Joan of Arc. His etheric team had told him the plans of the terrorists who were to bomb the Twin Towers in New York. Chris was so worried and convinced of what was going to happen that he had put this in writing to the American Embassy in London a few days before the tragedy happened.

His story was backed up on the show by the American scientist Professor Gary Schwartz - University of Arizona. Prof. Schwartz has been carrying out repeatable experiments under laboratory conditions with our British medium for many months. The results have been a staggering success.

To the credit of those on the Richard and Judy Show on Channel 4 Television a serious scientific exercise was carried out along the lines of those undertaken by Prof. Schwartz.

Chris was asked to put in a sealed envelope what he had dreamt the night before as to the exact location that the television people had planned to take him. Millions watched as Richard and Judy signed the back of the sealed envelope containing Chris Robinson's dream. Chris was then blindfolded and taken off to the secret location in London that only Channel 4 TV people knew about.

Later in the show the live cameras picked up the still blindfolded medium standing in front of Tower Bridge with the H.M.S. Belfast in the background. What happened next was one of the most incredible moments in the history of television.

The envelope was opened and it was almost all there. A river, a bridge with windows in it, one big boat, but not a hospital. The blindfold was then removed from Chris, at this moment, about the only calm person around in the midst of utter astonishment.

Chris Robinson on The Richard and Judy Show, June 11, 2002

The general feeling was that he had got it almost right, but it was a pity the hospital wasn't there. Then the real dramatic bit happened. Chris asked the camera to pan round and suddenly our TV screens were completely taken over by Guy's Hospital dominating the whole scene!

"That's where I had my heart surgery."

said the medium Chris Robinson, while the rest of the nation were smoothing down the hairs on the back of their necks.

Comment by Michael Roll:
 

To The Producer of the Richard and Judy Show: Channel 4 Television

Please invite the Cambridge University physicist Professor Peter Wadhams onto your show. So far only one expert opinion is reaching the people. No qualified scientist has been allowed to balance Dr. Susan Blackmore's support for orthodox scientific teaching that our minds die with the brain. Prof. Wadhams will put the scientific case for a separate mind and brain. So far he has only been allowed to do this on American radio. This can't be right in what is meant to be a free country. It's against Article 19 of The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights which demands a balance.
