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.”

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.


 

Are You There, God?

Today I’m picking a new topic for my blog. The existence of God. I am not saying that I’m an atheist, because I do believe in Solara, but my religion aside, I’m focusing on the God that has a large number of believers. That is the Christians, Jews and Muslims.

I am debating whether those particular religions God is real for the reasons I shall now explain.

“God created all things,” is a pretty much universal phrase used by anyone who believes in God. It is something overlooked by many, and those who question it ask the wrong questions. If God created all things and then came to whoever on Earth to tell them of his presence, why not tell those Prophets about the undiscovered American continents? Why not tell them of the universe and all the planets? God, in the Bible in particular, loves to boast his triumphs of creation, yet here he is missing an opportunity to even mention it.

“Gods love is infinite,” is another phrase I hear a lot. Now I have read bits of every religious text on Earth. Never quite finishing one, because, you know, I get bored. In religious texts he hates pretty much everyone. He always wants someone to be killed. There is no love. There is no forgiveness. Now people will disagree with this paragraph and I will share sources with anyone who asks.

What is natural? The need to put order on our existence comes from those who believe in God. For instance, before Christianity arrived in Europe the populous was Pagan, a nature based religion. They did as they pleased sexually, hosting and participating in orgies. Homosexuality was not an issue. You could be married and sleep with other people without being shamed. Then, in steps Christianity, and sexual repression takes hold. People were told no sex before marriage and once married never have sex with anyone else until you die. Completely counter to the Pagans and the animals all over the world. Nature is about passing your DNA on to as many children as you can, with the strongest and healthiest, thus ensuring your survival. It is programmed into our DNA. Now some may say that homosexuality is still not natural, but that is a lie perpetuated by those religious people. In nature there are many cases of homosexuality and it is natural and necessary. Homosexuals cannot reproduce, so they adopt. The need to parent is so strong that when the biological parents die and their offspring are still developing, the homosexual animals will adopt and raise until it is ready to reproduce itself. It is not natural to deny yourself what you want.



Noah’s Ark! Now, we are all familiar with this story of the Bible. I have many issues with this story. Firstly, the world is largely undiscovered at this time, setting aside the issue of having a boat large enough, how did the animals in undiscovered places survive. We are still discovering new species everyday, how were they saved? The entire world flooded. Where did the water recede to after that? Two of every animal? Let’s say that is true and someone saved only two animal from extinction, we now know about inbreeding and its dangers, so having the last two of that species would mean nothing. Their offspring would be severely disabled only a few generation in and it would inevitably die out as a result.

“Islam is a religion of love & peace,” This always pops up from all sides of the debate and in a sense it is true, but only if you’re a Muslim. That is saying that the Prophets have always taught to their disciples to love and be peaceful with other Muslims, but everyone else must either convert or be killed. And in the books of Islam – I think there are four or five – it openly states this and also the kinds of things they did, and unfortunately, still do to other Non-Muslims. “They should be treated no better than the dirt,” is a quote I have read. I will not write what exactly they have done, but you can easily find historical books on the matter.

This is a huge subject and I could keep going, but I think I shouldn’t devote my time to this. I didn’t write this as an offence to anyone, it is merely an observation.

I am myself religious as I stated above. And for those wondering about my religion, in short, it is a mix between Paganism and Buddhism.
