Berlin | A team of psychologists and medical doctors associated with the Technische Universität of Berlin, have announced this morning that they had proven by clinical experimentation, the existence of some form of life after death. This astonishing announcement is based on the conclusions of a study using a new type of medically supervised near-death experiences, that allow patients to be clinically dead for almost 20 minutes before being brought back to life.

This controversial process that was repeated on 944 volunteers over that last four years, necessitates a complex mixture of drugs including epinephrine and dimethyltryptamine, destined to allow the body to survive the state of clinical death and the reanimation process without damage. The body of the subject was then put into a temporary comatic state induced by a mixture of other drugs which had to be filtered by ozone from his blood during the reanimation process 18 minutes later.

The extremely long duration of the experience was only recently made possible by the development of a new cardiopulmonary recitation (CPR) machine called the AutoPulse. This type of equipment has already been used over the last few years, to reanimate people who had been dead for somewhere between 40 minutes to an hour.

The team of scientists led by Dr Berthold Ackermann, has monitored the operations and have compiled the testimonies of the subjects. Although there are some slight variations from one individual to another, all of the subjects have some memories of their period of clinical death. and a vast majority of them described some very similar sensations.

Most common memories include a feeling of detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of an overwhelming light.

The scientists say that they are well aware the many of their conclusions could shock a lot of people, like the fact that the religious beliefs of the various subjects seems to have held no incidence at all, on the sensations and experiences that they described at the end of the experiment. Indeed, the volunteers counted in their ranks some members are a variety of Christian churches, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and atheists.

“I know our results could disturb the beliefs of many people” says Mr Ackermann. “But in a way, we have just answered one of the greatest questions in the history of mankind, so I hope these people will be able to forgive us. Yes, there is life after death and it looks like this applies to everyone.”

Having a green wedding was a trend that turned into a tradition. Small changes add up to big savings for both the wedding budget and planet. Celebrate your big day with the earth in mind and implement some of these green wedding tips that won’t sacrifice style or personal preference.

Outdoor Wedding

Having an outdoor wedding during the daytime eliminates the need of electricity for lighting. The sun will provide natural light, keeping costs and natural resource usage down to a minimum.

Having the reception at the same location as the wedding will cut down on fuel consumption since it eliminates the need for your guests to travel to a second location.

Wedding Invitations

Select formal wedding invitations that are printed on recycled paper. Recycled paper looks just like any other paper, but you’ll know you have done an eco-friendly deed by helping to save trees.

Setting up a website for your upcoming nuptials is a non-paper way to keep in touch with the wedding party and guests.

Wedding Decor

All wedding decor can be chosen from whatever is locally grown. Locally grown flowers and fruits will be fresher, less expensive, save on the fuel usage and cost and will benefit your local economy.

Be eco-friendly by creating table centerpieces that will also be used as wedding favors and guest gifts. Glass bowls filled with locally-grown, fresh fruits or flowers can serve the environment twice by providing colorful wedding decor and as becoming wedding favors for your guests.

Wedding Dress

Every bride-to-be dreams of the perfect dress, why not make it a vintage dress. Unique, memorable and green wedding-friendly, vintage wedding dresses are in high demand. Wearing a gently used wedding dress on your big day is a great way to recycle and go green. Professional seamstresses can alter a vintage wedding dress for the perfect fit and look.

Wedding dresses made from environmentally friendly fabric like hemp, silk, organic cotton and bamboo fabric are another fashionable way to keep the environment in mind. Grooms have long been ahead of brides in going green on the wedding day attire by renting a tux.

Green Honeymoon

Top the green wedding off by enjoying a green honeymoon. Spend your first few days as newlyweds in a hotel or resort that keeps the environment in mind by recycling, supporting local businesses and reducing energy consumption.


How Christianity Changed Pagan Europe

It was not easy for Christianity to spread around a pagan Europe that was mostly under the cruel Roman control. It emerged as a Jewish sect and contradicted the Roman theology in its every little aspect, which was quite dangerous back in those days. Rome was promoting an idea where people were slaves or vassals of the empire, while Christianity promoted the idea of human freedom, an unimaginable concept in those times. In front of one Almighty God, everyone was equal, poor or rich, weak or strong, as God loves everyone. But the Romans fought with everything they got these ideas, which were abominable in their opinion, trying to exterminate Christianity from the territories they controlled.

But something amazing happened in Europe. The harder the Romans tried to extinguish the flame of Christianity, the greater the fire became, as this new formed religion was starting to grow in popularity. Around 135 CE, following the downfall of Bar Kochba, Christianity started to spread around Europe at an incredible speed. It took less than 100 years for a third of the Roman Empire to become Christian. Of course, this didn’t come without a price, as Christians were persecuted with cruelty by the Romans, who saw this religion as the ultimate offence brought to the empire’s Caesars, finding even the smallest reasons to publicly torture and execute Christians. But, from 260 to 360CE, the Roman Empire started to decline. The persecution of Christians did not help the pagan empire at all, as this only made Christianity more popular among common people, who were tired of the oppression unrolled by the Romans.

Christianity impacted the life of pagan Europeans at a significant degree, bringing customers and ideas that never existed before. In a world where women were considered worthless, except in the case of Jewish people, Christianity managed to give women hope, allowing them to believe in their goals and ambitions. Also, Christianity changed a lot the perception over sexuality as well. In both the Roman and Greek empires, sexuality was seen as a part of human’s nature, as normal as eating and sleeping. It was part of a natural and healthy society, not being condemned at all, as it was believed that people don’t have full control over their sexuality, being both mysterious and important. Thus, homosexuality was seen as normal in the pagan world, although it was still discriminated in a certain degree.

When it came to Christianity, sexuality was part of the moral identity of humans, being completely controllable and within the range of our free will. Of course, Christianity saw some pagan sexual practices as demonic, and we make reference here at homosexuality, which is completely forbidden and against human nature by the Christian religion. So, by introducing morality to the intimate lives of people, Christianity promoted the fact that sexuality is not a form of entertainment, as it was left in the world as a mean to procreate. Thus, intimate relationships outside of a marriage were not allowed, together with sexual relations between two persons of the same sex, and there were also rules about pre-marital sex, which were similar to the ones that existed in Rome and Greece as well, in spite of the fact that they followed pagan religions.
