Michael Roll Interviewed on Taunton TV (2001)
Taunton TV
In 2001, Michael Roll was interviewed by Jenny Smedley on Taunton TV.
Taunton TV broadcast to Taunton and Wellington (Somerset, South West England).
The station closed in 2002.

In the interview, Michael Roll talks about the important work of the chemist Sir William Crookes, who, working with a materialisation medium, proved in repeated scientific experiments under laboratory conditions that we all survive the death of our physical bodies. The results of these experiments were published in 1874 in the Quarterly Journal of Science. Michael tells that the physicist Sir Oliver Lodge, in his 1933 lecture The Mode of Future Existence, proposed a cosmological location for the so-called spiritual part of the universe. 

Michael Roll links these major breakthroughs in scientific understanding with the work of Ron Pearson, who has discovered a structure of the ether that has potential to evolve intelligence. Ron Pearson has provided the mathematical theory to back up the experiments of Sir William Crookes.

Thomas Paine - The Most Valuable Englishman Ever (1982)
The Most Valuable Englishman Ever (1982) - Part 1
Thomas Paine's Clarion Call For Freedom
When in 1776 the United States of America broke away from Britain, a country without a written constitution, with an established Church and an unelected House of Lords, Thomas Paine, an artisan from Thetford in Norfolk, England, made a call for freedom that is still reverberating around the world today. At the end of the 18th century this great free-thinking philosopher was wanted dead or alive in England for daring to fight for democracy, votes for all men and women, the abolition of slavery, and a welfare state with pensions for all. Those caught reading the following books could be heavily fined or deported to Australia:
Common Sense (1776)
"The sun never shone on a greater worth. It is not the concern of a day, a year or an age, posterity is virtually involved in the contest, and will be more or less affected, even to the end of time, by the proceedings now: now is the seed time of American continental union, faith and honour. Freedom hath been hunted round the globe, Asia and Africa hath long expelled freedom. Europe regards freedom like a stranger, and England hath given freedom warning to depart. O America, receive the fugitive freedom, and prepare, in time, an asylum for humankind."

Crisis (1777)

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis turn from the service of his country, but he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered, yet we have the consolation with us, the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. Let it be told to the future world, that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and to repulse it."

Rights of Man (1791)
"When it can be said by any country in the world, my poor are happy, neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them, my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars, the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive, the rational world is my friend because I am the friend of happiness. When these things can be said, then may that country boast its constitution and government. Independence is my happiness, the world is my country and my religion is to do good."

The Age of Reason (1794)
"I hope for happiness beyond this life, I believe in the equality of man, and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavouring to make our fellow creatures happy. I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Muslim Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any Church that I know of. My own mind is my own Church."

"All national institutions of Churches appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and to monopolise power and profit. Now some will say are we to have no word of God, no revelation? I answer, yes, there is a word of God, there is a revelation, the word of God is in the creation we behold, and it is in this word, which no human invention can counterfeit or alter, that God, speaketh, universally to man."

"Where freedom is", said Benjamin Franklin, "there is my country,"

"Where freedom is not," replied his friend Paine, "there is mine,"

All these quotations are taken from Kenneth Griffith's brilliant Thomas Paine documentary that somehow, in 1982, crept past the thought police who control the BBC in England. All requests for a repeat have been flatly rejected.
The Most Valuable Englishman Ever - Michael Roll's article about Thomas Paine (1736-1809)
This outstanding tribute to Thomas Paine - "The Most Valuable Englishman Ever" - is taken from Arthur Findlay's suppressed history of humanity, "The Curse of Ignorance”.

The Philosophy of Paine - By Thomas A. Edison (June 7, 1925)
Paine's teachings have been debarred from schools everywhere and his views of life misrepresented until his memory is hidden in shadows, or he is looked upon as of unsound mind.

We never had a sounder intelligence in this Republic. He was the equal of Washington in making American liberty possible. Where Washington performed Paine devised and wrote. The deeds of one in the Weld were matched by the deeds of the other with his pen.

The Bristol Post published this article in their print edition on Friday, September 26, 2014, and online on September 27, 2014.
IN 1938 my mother gave me the middle name of Findlay. She had named me after her hero, the Scottish philosopher Arthur Findlay. In 1932 she had read his book On the Edge of the Etheric linking the study of survival after death with forces in the universe that are natural and normal. Something that happens to every person on Earth. This can be read on the Internet. Therefore it has never crossed my mind that death is the end of everything. This is the false base that orthodox scientific teaching starts from, across every discipline – that the mind and brain are the same, that when you are dead, you're dead. Especially the psychology departments. They have declared war on the Greek source of their word, Psyche = Soul. They have fallen in line with the kings of science, the physicists like Einstein and Professor Stephen Hawking:

"I don't believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbour such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism."

Albert Einstein, New York Times, April 19, 1955

However, it was not until 1983 that I received the crushing personal proof that my mother was correct in her conclusions and that Einstein and Hawking had got it desperately wrong. I was invited to Leicester to take part in a scientific experiment. It had been reported that mothers and fathers were being physically reunited with their "dead" children. Here I was sitting next to Barry and Pat Jeffery when their "dead" 16-year-old son, who was killed on his motorcycle, fully materialised and spoke to his parents in his Midland's accent, giving them the crushing proof that losing a loved one is only a temporary tragedy. This experiment had been repeated about 300 times.

Another of the "dead" people who materialised was Russell Byrne whose physical body packed in at the age of nine with cancer. He has been physically reunited with his mother and father, Gwen and Alf Byrne on something like 100 experiments. Russell said that as I was coming back next week with my mother, "Is there anybody over here you would like us to get?" I asked if they would be kind enough to get my father who died of cancer in 1967. Russell replied, "If he is over here we will try and dig him out." Sure enough when I went to Leicester the following week I also received the personal proof that my father had survived the death of his physical body.

I was not happy about this at all, in fact I was absolutely livid. Not that my father had survived, but the fact that only a handful of people had received this proof of survival. This is a scientific fact that belongs to every man, woman and child on Earth, it's just too bad if it upsets the followers of Einstein and Stephen Hawking. From that moment on I was determined to make it my business to tell as many people as possible about what I had witnessed. I received a letter from a mother who had just seen her two boys killed in front of her by a car. What this mother said to me is the dynamo that drives me on.

"After reading your scientific case for survival after death my pillow is dry at night, I am a different woman."

Thanks to the Internet millions of people across the world now have instant access to the secular scientific case for survival after death. In 1874 Sir William Crookes discovered the spiritual part of the universe following repeatable experiments under laboratory conditions. He published the results of his experiments in The Quarterly Journal of Science. He was later made president of The Royal Society and awarded the Order of Merit. Crookes discovered the missing 95 per cent of the universe that all scientists are now talking about. It's the part of the universe that we all come from and return to after our short stay on Earth.

In 1933 Sir Oliver Lodge, the first person to send a radio signal in 1894, presented his paper 'The Mode of Future Existence'. This gives a cosmological location for the spiritual part of the universe. He linked the study of life after death with subatomic forces that are normally out of range of our five physical senses.
Crookes and Lodge were the pioneers of radio and television. They understood about forces that we can't normally see and sense. The other great pioneer was John Logie Baird. In his autobiographical notes 'Sermons, Soap and Television' 1988 (Royal Television Society) on page 66 he tells the exciting story of how a colleague carried out an experiment where he took the fingerprints of an etheric person who materialised. They were identical to those on the dead physical body.

This can now all be checked out on the website of The Campaign for Philosophical Freedom: http://www.cfpf.org.uk
It is hard to imagine anything worse than losing a loved one.

Those who know that there is scientific proof that we all survive death know that losing a loved one is only a temporary tragedy.
These scientific discoveries bring hope and comfort to every person on Earth.
A mother, who had seen her two young boys killed in front of her in a traffic accident, wrote:
"After reading your scientific case for survival after death, my pillow is now dry at night. I am a different woman."
During an experiment with the materialisation medium Rita Goold, Michael Roll sat next to a mother and father, and watched them talking to their "dead" son, who had been killed in a motorcycle accident at the age of sixteen. These parents have been reunited with their son on about 300 separate occasions over a number of years.

Dr Alan Gauld, who was President of the Society for Psychical Research from 1989 - 1992, also witnessed this happening.
Alan Gauld's reaction:
Pretend it did not happen
Michael Roll's reaction:
Tell everyone
In a 1992 documentary, In Search of the Dead II: Visions and Voices, Dr Alan Gauld talks about how materialisation mediums used to use cheesecloth, but nowadays use net curtains as fake ectoplasm.
(Hence over 30 years of tireless campaigning and this website.)

Everyone in the world has a right to know about these exciting discoveries in physics, especially parents who have lost children.

We have all lost loved ones, and we are all going to die one day.
Those who censor the secular scientific case for survival after death are showing contempt for grieving people everywhere.
Carl Sagan's Book and TV Documentary 'Cosmos'

Carl Sagan - Cosmos
Dr Carl Sagan presenting Cosmos (1980)

A whole generation of scientists have been brought up following Carl Sagan’s materialistic model of the universe. This has recently been made very clear by the incredible television coverage that has been given to the astrophysicist Professor Brian Cox. On one of his programmes he even held up his copy of ‘Cosmos’.

The theme of Carl Sagan’s thirteen-part television series is that if only we had been following the great Greek scientists and not the religious fanatics who plunged the known world into the Dark Ages, we would have got to the moon in the tenth century. I am 100% with him on this. However, Sagan puts the blame for this disaster squarely on the shoulders of Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato. He looks at the camera and almost spits it out, “They were mystics!” In other words they were on our side, starting from the correct scientific base that we all possess a soul that separates from the dead physical body.

In his e-mail, Michael Roll writes:
"On June 22, 1941 the USSR was invaded by the biggest Catholic Christian army ever."
Niall Ferguson

Niall Ferguson

‘The Pity of War’ - BBC Two Television by Professor Niall Ferguson (Broadcast on February 28, 2014)

Here is a television history programme that will live on in infamy.

It is the Vatican’s take on the history of mankind, and the cause of the First World War.

Thankfully, Ferguson gave the game away in the beginning when he gave us a crash course in the history of mankind on this planet. He showed, by horrific graphics, Christians torturing their victims to death. The Holy Inquisition, which he called “The Spanish Inquisition”.

The Jesuit’s idea of history, that this was nothing to do with those nice people in the Vatican, it’s all to do with those nasty Spanish people.

Then he played the Jesuit’s ace of trumps. At great expense, in graphics, we were treated to the historical lie that it was Marconi who invented radio, instead of Sir Oliver Lodge.
It is so important to the Vatican that nobody must read the work of Sir Oliver Lodge. They know they are done for if this ever happens.

Sir Oliver Lodge made a very careful study of survival after death as a branch of physics, chemistry and mathematics – natural and normal forces in the universe, and nothing to do with supernatural religious absurdities invented in the dark age of ignorance by priests, mullahs and rabbis. Sir Oliver Lodge was no more dabbling in the one-god religion of Spiritualism, as we have been criminally led to believe, than Professor Richard Dawkins is.
The Mode of Future Existence’ by Sir Oliver Lodge can now be read by every person who has access to the Internet.

Then we came onto the cause of the First World War.
The usual rubbish, there was not a hint that there was any religious hatred in the Balkans.
Just that the Russians came in on the side of their fellow slavs in Serbia.

The American Professor Gerald Pollack has made it clear that Flat Earth scientists are blocking the discoveries of Round Earth scientists.
We can now state, loud and clear, that Flat Earth historians and blocking the findings of Round Earth historians.

There are journalists in the hot spots of religious hatred all over the world.
They are no longer going to play the establishment game that all this killing is nothing to do with religion.

Michael Roll
First World War
The First World War - BBC Four Television by Jonathan Lewis - First Episode: To Arms (Broadcast on February 25, 2014)

This programme covered the whole of the build up to the First World War.

It was just the same as the rubbish that we were taught at school in England where the Church and the state are still established. The programme makers just pretended that nobody had noticed the terrible religious killing in the Balkans that had recently been covered over a number of years on their television sets.

We were told that the Serbs were Slavs and that the Russians came in on the side of their fellow Slavs.
We were not told that the Serbian people had been brainwashed to actually believe in Orthodox Christianity, just the same as the hierarchy in Russia.
The word religion was not even mentioned in the programme.

We were not told that the Austrians were brainwashed Catholics.
Nor were we told that in the middle of this lot were brainwashed Muslims, just that they were Turks left over from the Ottoman Empire.

There is a good reason for this deception.
It is because if it was made clear that it was Catholic Christians and Orthodox Christians killing each other, then people may ask what is it that divides them?

Thanks to the Internet this can be found out very quickly. This terrible hatred is all over a bust up in the 11th century over the Holy Ghost. All the killing was over nothing whatsoever apart from supernatural religious mythology that had gone completely mad.

The programme did get it right about the reason why Britain and France joined in.
They saw this religious killing in the Balkans as the perfect excuse to smash the German war machine that was a threat to all the countries that they had pinched throughout the world.

First World War
Britain's legacy to the tortured Ottoman Empire - by Patrick Bishop (Daily Telegraph, February 1, 2014)
Selfish imperial agreements between Britain and France, combined with the publication of the contradictory Balfour Declaration of 1917, fuelled hostilities in the Middle East

It was, wrote historian James Barr, “a shamelessly self-interested pact, reached well after the point when a growing number of people had started to blame empire-building for the present war”. Britain would come to regret the land-grab bitterly, for it set off a conflict that, like an active volcano, would erupt intermittently down the succeeding years and even today shows no signs of cooling.

The Allies created a terrible mess in the Middle East. As well as the Israel-Palestine struggle, they bear a measure of responsibility for the inherent instability of the states that emerged from the post-war settlements. Decisions that produced the disorder were often taken hastily, heedless of long-term considerations. It soon became clear that there would be plenty of time to regret at leisure.

The deal from which much of the mischief sprang was known as the Sykes-Picot agreement. It was worked out by Sir Mark Sykes – a land-owning Yorkshire baronet and MP with a taste for the Orient – and a truculent and Anglophobe French diplomat, François Georges-Picot. Between them they split the Ottomans’ Middle Eastern empire, drawing a diagonal line in the sand that ran from the Mediterranean coast to the mountains of the Persian frontier. Territory north of this arbitrary boundary would go to France and most south of it would go to Britain.


Men like former prime minister and now foreign secretary Arthur Balfour, who had been brought up on the Bible, believed the Jews had a right to return to the Promised Land. They also harboured the conviction that Jews exercised enormous hidden influence in the world and particularly in America and Russia. By making a promise that would gladden Zionist hearts, they might win their co-operation in achieving British war aims. After the conflict was over, it could be useful to have a Jewish entity in the region that felt it owed a debt of gratitude to the empire.

In November 1917, a document was issued in Balfour’s name that laid the foundations for modern Israel. It stated that the government “view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object”. The Balfour Declaration, as it became known, made no mention of the Arabs who, at the time, made up about 90 per cent of Palestine’s population. It did, however, utter the pious proviso that “nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities”.

Balfour Declaration
Balfour Declaration

The Balfour Declaration (November 2, 1917): The then UK Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour believed that the Bible was the word of God, and thought it would be a brilliant idea to put the Jews back in the Holy Land.

Arthur Findlay’s history of mankind ‘The Curse of Ignorance’ has been completely vindicated.

We have won the historical fight to get the truth through.
Now we can go flat out in getting Ron Pearson's scientific model of the universe past the professional wreckers.

2014 marks the 140th anniversary of Sir William Crookes' discovery of the spiritual part of the universe.

A History of Christianity - A Page-by-Page Criticism of Paul Johnson's Horror Story - Michael Roll has revised his detailed criticism of Paul Johnson's 1976 book, which The Christian Century hailed as “the best one-volume history of Christianity ever done”.
In this exceptional book, Johnson offers a factual and comprehensive study of historical events that followed the founding of a little-known “Jesus Sect” and the countless atrocities committed in the name of Christianity.

Cover of A History of Christianity Pamphlet
A History of Christianity - Cover of the Original Pamphlet

Johnson writes:

“During these two millennia Christianity has, perhaps, proved more influential in shaping human destiny than any other institutional philosophy, but there are now signs that its period of predominance is drawing to a close, thereby inviting a retrospect and a balance sheet.”

This pamphlet is dedicated to every person in the world who has had the fear of Christ put up them -- Those who have been terrified by priests into thinking that, if they do not believe in priestcraft, they will rot in hell forever without any chance of getting out. Mental child abuse must now carry the same penalty as physical child abuse.

In England, the Church and the state are established. Up until 2009, when the common law offence of blasphemous libel was abolished, it was against the law to tell the true history of Christianity, to let people have access to what is contained in this criticism on the grounds that it may upset Christians. This block was policed by a handful of powerful people holding all the top positions in our schools, on the air waves, and in the press, all working through the highly efficient religious affairs departments.
Why did Rev. Don Cupitt, Dean of Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge, make the following statement in 1988:

“Somehow, everybody just knows that Christianity is the Church and the Church is a power-structure, an apparatus for limiting freedom in belief and morals.”

And what did Professor Sir A.J. Ayer, Wykeham Professor of Logic at the University of Oxford, mean when he was reported on the front page of the first Mail on Sunday to have said:

“Christianity is morally outrageous and intellectually contemptible.”

In her article, Svetlana Anina (Светлана Анина) writes about the Campaign for Philosophical Freedom, the work of Michael Roll, Ron Pearson, Judith Chisholm, Sir William Crookes, and others.


Russian Federation This article was published by Pravda Online on May 14, 2003 (in Russian).

Translation into English from the original Russian
  • That fact that many of Pearson's works are subject to censorship from the British Society for Physical Research, and are not published by the majority of magazines and newspapers, is testimony to the fact that these ideas represent a threat to orthodox teaching.

    If it were a load of nonsense, Pearson’s work would be subject to broad discussion and his arguments would be crushed.

    But that has not happened!

    He is simply ignored.
  • Naturally, questions began to arise: are mind and consciousness really products of brain activity?

    Or, can the brain perform the function of an intermediary, processing information, and can this information come from outside?

    And Dr Fenwick then said that if the mind and brain can be independent of each other, there follow questions about the possibility of existence of consciousness after death.

    Dr Parnia, in turn, has admitted that when he began these experiments, he was a dyed-in-the-wool sceptic, but he is now compelled to agree that there is something to all this.
SHOTS IN THE DARK (Chameleons and holograms: Dark energy hunt gets weird) is the title of this week's New Scientist article admitting ignorance of the nature of 'Dark Energy'.


Dear All - especially our professors,

Could you professors all please help by writing to New Scientist to inform them of the existence of this solution?
The solution is important to this group's aim of communicating SURVIVAL as fact since it forms a main feature of its explanation.
It is also absurd that £billions are being wasted in efforts to uncover the mystery when a solution was published even before the discovery.

I can't do it since editors throw out submissions from people with the 'wrong' qualifications.

The gist of it is as follows:
I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the accelerating expansion of the universe was predicted in 1992 long before its discovery.

This was the result of a solution to the inflation problem of the big bang. The derivation used by Dr. Alan Guth was based on the false logic of a negative pressure cancelling energy density. As result this failed to provide a means for any energy creation switch-off. The result was ''The Problem of the Cosmological Constant' - an error 10^120 times too high!

The solution that provided the creation switch-off used an energy symmetry. This also had the inherent feature of predicting a universe in a state of slowly ever-accelerating expansion - even before the name Dark Energy was even coined!

This was first published by the Russian Academy of Science and Arts in 1994 under the title 'Quantum Gravitation and the Structured Ether' and later in the Spring/Summer edition of 1997 in Frontier Perspectives pp.70-78 under the title 'Consciousness as a Sub Quantum Phenomenon'.

This was commended by the editor after full peer-review but nobody reads it since the title was inadvertently omitted from the contents list.

The point is that from a solution to the major problem a solution for what is now called 'Dark Energy' arose as a natural consequence. It is the sub-quantum ultimate reality that generates the waves on which the quantum level depends. Organised wave generation results from the self-organising power of energy-fed chaos.

I do hope that you can help to draw attention to the fact that Dark Energy holds no real mystery since the mechanism by which it operates has been known for 22 years.

E-mail from Ron Pearson to Vlatco Vedral (April 21, 2013)
In his e-mail, Ron Pearson writes:
I was intrigued to see that quantum physicists are now saying that our world is constructed entirely of information and not energy. But do they have any idea of the source of that information?
Ron Pearson

Ron Pearson

November 2013: Ron Pearson has so far not received a reply from Vlatco Vedral. This is a pity, as Ron was offering Vedral a solution to his question.

The solution is Survival Physics, and was published in the October 2005 edition of the SPR magazine Paranormal Review.

Ron Pearson began work on Survival Physics in 1987, as an attempt to solve a major problem of the big bang, by which it is still invalidated: The big bang theory predicts a rate of expansion of the universe that is a billion multiplied by itself 13 times too high!
(That is: 1000,000,000 x 1000,000,000 x this number again and again for a total of 13 multiplications – That many times too high!)

Ron Pearson's solution shows that an ultimate reality must exist, having the properties of self-creation and self-organisation. This then provides all the information needed to create the illusions of matter and the etheric worlds - so providing an answer to the question posed to Vlatco Vedral regarding the source of information he postulates.

Furthermore, Ron Pearson's solution predicted the accelerating expansion of the universe before its discovery in 1998, first in Russia in 1993, and later in the Spring/Summer edition of Frontier Perspectives 1997 under the title 'Consciousness as a Sub-Quantum Phenomenon'.

It is worth noting that cosmologists assume the acceleration to be caused by something they call 'Dark Energy'. However, they admit this is a complete mystery and search for clues by studying, using five satellites at great expense, the cosmic background radiation of the universe.

What they have not yet realised is that what they are seeing is the ultimate reality.

Melvyn Bragg's Radical Lives: Rights of Man – Thomas Paine

Broadcast on BBC TWO Television on Saturday, August 9, 2014: 21:15.

Melvyn Bragg
Melvyn Bragg
Thomas Paine
Thomas Paine
Melvyn Bragg tells the remarkable story of Thomas Paine (1736 - 1809), the 18th-century English radical writer who wrote three of the best-selling political essays of all time: Common Sense (1776), Rights of Man (1791), and The Age of Reason (1794).

Thomas Paine's Rights Of Man and The Age of Reason charged British radical thinking throughout the 18th century, and were a key intellectual influence on the American Revolution, which brought independence from Britain. Paine lit the fuse for the American Revolution, was an active participant in the French Revolution, and laid the foundation for political reform in Britain. His influence - both literary and political - has continued long after his death.

For this broadcast, Melvyn Bragg travels from Norfolk to Philadelphia, and New York to Paris, as he follows in the footsteps of one of the great champions of democracy and human rights. Along the way, he explains how the freedoms we all enjoy grew out of 18th- century Enlightenment thinking, and were given popular voice in the works of Thomas Paine.

At last people in their millions are going to find out just how badly they are being deceived by their leaders and teachers - that there is no such thing as Christians, Muslims, and the Jewish religion.

People have been killing each other over nothing! Only supernatural religious absurdities invented by men in the dark age of ignorance. Men who knew nothing about the cosmos, and thought that a red hot ball of fire went round a flat Earth every day.

In the 21st-century, any conclusions that these ancient priests came to have to be scrutinised very carefully indeed, and never blindly believed. Thomas Paine’s exciting scientific age of reason has arrived. No wonder he was wanted dead or alive in England for daring to tell the truth in a country where even today the Church and the state are still established.

Article about Melvyn Bragg's Radical Lives: Rights of Man – Thomas Paine:

Melvyn Bragg: 'Thomas Paine was a great Englishman' (August 9, 2014, The Telegraph)
(…) His first book, Common Sense, written in 1775, was taken by the American leaders of what became their Revolution – especially George Washington – as a summons that it was their duty to throw off the colonial yoke.

His next publication, The Rights of Man (1791), had, like Common Sense, startling success, and also attacked the English constitution. It sold more copies than the Bible and it turned the British government against him.

In his third book, The Age of Reason he dismantled the Bible stories with a ferocity of reason which again infused the imagination of an immense audience.


He was far ahead of his time. “When it shall be said in any country in the world, my poor are happy… my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want; the taxes are not oppressive… then may that country boast its constitution and its government.”

But yet again he attacked those who had elevated him. He objected to all capital punishment including the execution of the King and Queen of France. The French threw him out of Parliament and into prison, where he just escaped the guillotine.


He died in America in 1809, having been given a small pension by a few of his friends. Even fewer turned up – six – at his funeral.

From the Comments:
"An illiterate mechanic, when mistaking some disturbance of his nerves for a miraculous call proceeds alone to convert a tribe of savages, whose language he can have no natural means of acquiring, may have been misled by impulses very different from those of high self opinion ; but the illiterate perpetrator of " the Age of Reason," must have had his very conscience stupefied by the habitual intoxication of presumptuous arrogance, , and his common sense over-clouded by the vapours of his head"

Here is the proof.

Below is the wording on the plaque in the Oxford University Museum of Natural History on the very spot where Sir Oliver Lodge sent the first radio signal on August 14, 1894 at the Oxford meeting of The British Association.

Oliver Lodge Centenary of Radio Transmission

This plaque commemorates the centenary of the first public demonstration of wireless telegraphy, the precursor of modern radio. In this lecture theatre on 14 August 1894 at the Oxford meeting of The British Association, Sir Oliver Lodge, F.R.S., demonstrated the reception of a morse code signal transmitted from the old Clarendon Laboratory, some sixty metres away.

Sharp Laboratories of Europe generously funded this plaque which was unveiled by Sir Michael Atiyah, O.M., President of The Royal Society.

The Scientific Discovery of the Spiritual Part of the Universe

In 1933, the inventor of radio, Sir Oliver Lodge (1851 - 1940), gave a cosmological location for the spiritual part of the universe with his scientific paper The Mode of Future Existence. This vital scientific discovery has been suppressed and kept from the people.

In 1894, Sir Oliver Lodge sent the first radio signal. However, twenty years before this, in 1874, Sir William Crookes (1832 - 1919) had discovered the spiritual part of the universe by carrying out repeatable experiments under laboratory conditions, and had published the results in The Quarterly Journal of Science. Crookes was later made the president of The Royal Society and awarded The Order of Merit.

Crookes' experiments proved that it was scientifically possible for, for example, Jesus to appear in front of his disciples in his "spiritual" body, proving to them that he had survived the death of his physical body.

Professor C.D. Stephens correctly credits Sir Oliver Lodge as the first person to send a radio signal.

However, this was not at Liverpool University. There is a plaque at the Museum Lecture Theatre at Oxford University at the very spot where this took place in 1894.

This was Jeremy Paxman’s fourth and final episode of his series Britain’s Great War.

Paxman told how a medium contacted Sir Oliver Lodge, giving evidence that his son Raymond, who had just been killed, was still very much alive.

Paxman reported that the book that Sir Oliver Lodge wrote was a bestseller and it gave great comfort to millions of grieving people:

‘Raymond or Life and Death’ by Sir Oliver J. Lodge (1916) Methuen & Co. Ltd.

Incredibly, no professional wreckers were brought on to rubbish the very idea that any person could possibly survive the death of their physical body.
