Apparently seeing the ridicule heaped on men like Crookes, Lodge, Barrett, and Hyslop, modern scientists and scholars have been reluctant to take a stand, even after closely examining evidence that strongly suggests a spirit world and, concomitantly, life after death.
Dr. Jan W. Vandersande, the author of this book, is a rare exception. He does not sit on the fence like so many others. He comes right out and tells the reader what he has observed and what he believes. He mentions observing flying trumpets, seeing ectoplasm, and hearing spirit voices through the trumpet. "Those experiences changed my life in at least two ways," Vandersande, who holds a doctorate in physics and served professorships at the University of Witwatersand, South Africa, and at Cornell University, tells the reader. "Firstly, it gave me the conviction that there is life after death. Secondly, it made it possible for me to be able to critically read much of the literature about psychic and paranormal phenomena.Read more ›
These words are particularly meaningful when examining the book by Dr. Jan W. Vandersande, "Life After Death: Some of the Best Evidence." Even though Flammarion was a scientist who spoke professionally about the reality of spirit communication, he lived long ago and the tendency by many today is to discount earlier scientists as being too gullible and not in possession of the latest technology. Flammarion was not the lone spiritualist in scientific circles of his day, of course, but it is refreshing to find scientists today who are unafraid to speak out in defense of phenomenon they have rigorously tested with the use of the scientific method.
Vandersande is such a person and his book lays out quite clearly his personal experiences with spirit communication and materialization along with his evaluation of it. A reader cannot escape the fact that he, because of his education and training, is a qualified observer - someone who would not be duped by chicanery.Read more ›
Do you ever feel as though you are being watched? What if you actually saw or heard the entity? Vandersande's book, Life After Death, gives many accounts of his sessions over an eight-year period where he personally witnessed such things as ectoplasm and direct voice through trance mediums and channelers. All his experiences are described in detail and with supporting strange-but-true photos.
Materializations of deceased entities are probably the most impressive evidence for life after death. He talks about materialization during sessions he calls sittings or séances in which the medium is usually in trance. This is not hard for me to believe, and probably a pretty acceptable idea to those who have lost a loved one and felt their presence near them thereafter. I have awakened during the night on more than one account to see a bluish-grey figure hovering over my bed. Things have been known to move from one place to another in my house. Thanks to Jan, I now know that these phenomena are due to spirit entities manifesting themselves. Such occurrences were so common in my life that I wrote and published a book about it in 2005.
Vandersande's book is appropriately subtitled Some of the Best Evidence for life after death.Read more ›
