New life in an old fight

There are a number of popular cynics that condemn life after death and/or mediumship. One of them has a $1 million dollar challenge around it, which has been in place for years.

Personally, I don’t give a hoot about proving anything to anybody, least of all to someone who is cynical to begin with. As far as I’m concerned, they can stand on their soap box and say it’s fakery all day long.

This kind of fight is old, boring stuff to me, and it’s been this way forever. But here’s something new and interesting. There’s actually someone in our corner who is willing to take the cynics on. He is matching them with a $1 million dollar challenge to rebut evidence of life after death.

Victor also wrote an article about the technical reasons that cynics are so stubborn. Not bad. I hadn’t thought of them in quite that way before.

How about that?

By the way, in the text above, the usage of “cynic” is mine, not Victor’s. He uses “close-minded skeptic”. My working definition of the difference between a skeptic and a cynic is that a cynic has a closed mind, so for me at least, the term fits.

Lastly, thanks to the anonymous person who gave me the link to Victor’s site as part of a survey I’m running. Much appreciated 🙂


Selling Tools

Here is an article from CNN that is written about spirits who recently passed and then appeared to their Earth plane friends. The spirits appeared before the friends knew anything of their passing.  If you like to read such accounts, I think you’ll find it a little long but interesting.

I work in the software business, and my job involves helping our customers sell software. I am well used to working with a number of things that are collectively called selling tools, such as customer-facing presentations, a value proposition and an elevator pitch. A value proposition is a statement of what the value of the software is and why you would want to buy it, and an elevator pitch is what you would say when describing the software (and the value) to a complete stranger during a 30-second elevator ride. Success stories are another selling tool. Success stories are exactly what they sound like – stories where a customer had some type of business problem, employed the software, and got positive results. For the purpose of clarity, I should make it clear that what I’m referring to as selling is not negative, manipulative, or high-pressure. The same applies to selling tools.

If you wanted to sell someone the idea of mediumship, or at least life after death, you might use this article as a selling tool, as it contains a number of success stories. Note that calling it a selling tool does not cheapen, or take anything away from the value of the article.

If you have prospects in your life who aren’t sure about mediumship and/or life after death, you might want to hand them this article to get them thinking. It’ll probably take a whole lot more than an article for them to change their minds, but that’s to be expected. What really changes one’s mind is personal experience, and that depends on the spirits, most of the time.  And of course, this not something you sell in the first place. Spiritualism has been called a religion of conviction, not conversion, and that couldn’t be more true for the religion as well as mediumship and life after death.
