E-mail from Michael Roll to Tony Ortzen, January 22, 2004

Tony Ortzen is Editor of Psychic News.

Dear Tony,

I can't understand why Derek Oldham is "perplexed" about the followers of Arthur Findlay rejecting monotheism. The whole point of Peter Wakeham starting The Arthur Findlay Society is to present the secular scientific case for survival after death to every person in the world.

"We have a choice of 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." - Arthur Findlay (1947)

Surely Derek does not think religionists have a monopoly of ethics? How about following philosophers like Thomas Paine and Arthur Findlay - thinkers. Let's now say to all the priests, mullahs, rabbis and ministers of religion, move over, you have made a terrible mess of the world.

Yours sincerely

Michael Roll

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."
