Not

sure this is science. I have a memory of going to the moon - doesn't mean it happened.

Not discounting the possibility of previous lives - I believe that it's definitely possible....just wouldn't call this science.

My little boy did that

From the time he could speak he would tell us his name was Pena and that he was from Florida and his mom was Carol and she drove a station wsgon. lots of detail. I knew it was a past life. In factI have memories of two lives myself.

I was 4 years old family suntanning at the beach my mom placed me on her friend's leg and my thoughts were: "this is awesome they don't know I'm a horny man"

lol...

And I can show you children with "memories" of being aliens.

A child's "memory" isn't science. So someone needs to go back to school and learn the definition of both "science" and "evidence".

"Science" is great; but has limitations.

An enormous abount of it is dependent on Newton's laws.

All of it is dependent on measurements using known laws of energy, space and very much contradicting theories about time. All of these go round in circular definitions dependent on each other without an eventual starting point.

None of the laws explain where any particles came from in the first place.

Things require mass or wavelength to be measured by current means.

Science does not explain why we can all move out of our bodies unless we have been severely drugged at some point or severely electro-shocked. I can show you processes, which if not perverted, will move anyone (if not over-drugged currently or in the past or shocked; these can but it takes longer -- not useful for demonstrations) out of his body with varying degrees of perception. For the meantime, just consider the multitude of out of body experiences that have been related and two common factors: they all relate "I saw" and "I thought" (how, if the brain and eyes were elsewhere?). Science has no way of proving this or disproving it as the spritual being has no detectable mass or wavelength. You can however, detect energy emanations from a spiritual being. Yes, I know -- a total anomaly and causes most "scientists" who encounter it to stop countenancing it. They go back to their meters and mathematic formulas and think instead of looking.

Luckily, some did not.

I'll mention some things that could be looked at, but most will not do so.

I can show you other methods where any operator can get any subject to create manifestations visible to other people or cause, eventually, the subject to make particles to disappear from a selected mass (as observable by anyone). These methods have existed for more than 50 years. They are not commonly used because they do not not fulfil the main purpose of the body of knowledge to which they belong; they were used in research to test the relationship between the spiritual being and the physical universe but do not have particular therapeutic value (do not rapidly enhance the abilities of the spiritual being).

I wont answer questions about any of this, as my schedule is too demanding and the basics of this are extremely well publicized and can be found by interested looking by anyone who is prepared to let a fixed idea slip form time to time and consider an undercut to it. I come in here from time to time because some very good people (in my opinion) here raise interesting topics.

I thought I'd challenge you to look beyond what you know in some new direction without being much fed :) All of us here seem to be diagree with fed.

Semantics aside, explain this.

How can you explain

Children at the age of 3 composing sonatas Mozart Chopin etc?

At the age of 15 I regressed into my past.
I saw details of my birth only mom and nurses would know...actually I told my mom in which spots in classes she was sitting while pregnant with me.

How do your questions in any way relate to the topic at hand?

They don't. I don't have to explain away anything. The two scenarios you listed are irrelevant to the topic at hand. Your statements above, while seemingly unlikely, are not impossible, and in no way say anything to prove anything about the hypothesis.

Seriously, LL, I am getting so absolutely sick of people not taking the time to understand basic science, and basic logic before making absurd statements.

I am beginning to wonder if the entire world has been dumbed down to the point that we will not recover.

Why science does not touch the subject of the soul?

Was Jesus a scientist?

Why science has to have the final word for everything?

In past centuries most scientists like Giordano Bruno were burned at the stake.
Giordano Bruno btw believed in reincarnation and this was seen by the Vatican as one of the 10 points written down as reasons for his death penalty.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe also believed in reincarnation -- was he stupid?

This is EXACTLY what I am talking about.

First, I called no one stupid.

Second, you talk about "science" as if it is a belief system. It is not, it is the method by which we discover the facts, and prove theories to be true or false.

Jesus didn't even exist, but I am not going to get into that discussion with you, because if you are struggling with understanding how to prove a theory, I find it hard to believe that you could have an honest discussion on that topic.

What the hell do I care what ANYONE believes? In order to prove a claim, you must use logic and reason. You have not done this, and you show that you do not even know what I mean when I explain it.

The heart i pray can someday be soft again.....

in a couple weeks when your done writing 2012 and start writing 2013 let if be a reminder to you that Jesus Christ is as real today as he was back then. He flipped this world upside down, demolishing all before and after him.

It truly is ok if you choose to not ask him into your life, there is going to be a place where people go who want to live separate from him for eternity. This is all choice, a personal choice, a very internal choice, only we can make as individuals not a group. It will be a place separate from God. We have him here now we can feel his presence and grasp his hope. There will be none after separation.

Elias Boudinot

PRESIDENT OF CONGRESS; SIGNED THE PEACE TREATY TO END THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION; FIRST ATTORNEY ADMITTED TO THE U. S. SUPREME COURT BAR; FRAMER OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS; DIRECTOR OF THE U. S. MINT

Let us enter on this important business under the idea that we are Christians on whom the eyes of the world are now turned… [L]et us earnestly call and beseech Him, for Christ’s sake, to preside in our councils. . . . We can only depend on the all powerful influence of the Spirit of God, Whose Divine aid and assistance it becomes us as a Christian people most devoutly to implore. Therefore I move that some minister of the Gospel be requested to attend this Congress every morning . . . in order to open the meeting with prayer.18

John Dickinson

SIGNER OF THE CONSTITUTION; GOVERNOR OF PENNSYLVANIA; GOVERNOR OF DELAWARE; GENERAL IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Rendering thanks to my Creator for my existence and station among His works, for my birth in a country enlightened by the Gospel and enjoying freedom, and for all His other kindnesses, to Him I resign myself, humbly confiding in His goodness and in His mercy through Jesus Christ for the events of eternity.27

[Governments] could not give the rights essential to happiness… We claim them from a higher source: from the King of kings, and Lord of all the earth.28

n psychology, cognitive dissonance is the excessive mental stress and discomfort[1] experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time.

I was an Atheist for about 10 years.
At times a militant one.

I read shelf by shelf all Atheist books I could find in libraries.
I learned English language reading Thomas Paine's The Age Of Reason.

Read hundreds of American Atheist Magazine copies.
Loved O'Hair.

One time in Rome I asked a tourist what happened to her: she got killed in a robbery and all the gold she had stashed was stolen.

#1 Atheist lady in America got killed for her gold.

Just came to me...flashback...need to go for a walk perhaps.

If this topic interests you

you should check out the book, Many Lives, Many Masters by Psychotherapist Dr. Brian Weiss. The story will knock your socks off!

"Gold is the money of kings; silver is the money of gentlemen; barter is the money of peasants; but debt is the money of slaves."

Life After Life

by Dr Raymond Moody is another great book along with the Brian Weiss book.

DUH!!!

Psychiatry and psychology have been denying the existence of the spiritual being for ever and a day, with the anomaly that many Christian churches insist their pastors' training includes psychology.

I and tens of thousands of others have been counselling people for decades and if you counsel anyone long enough with the right methodology, they will have clear recalls of previous existences. There are about 200 different ways to move a spiritual being out of the body he inhabits at which point he realises he is immortal and not a body and loses many fears and gains much new sense of responsibility (obviously).

For decades the MSM and medicine has villified it as science fiction while psychiatrist drug the hell out of people who randomly come up with such phenomena in their ongoing political agenda. A free being is NOT something they want.

Several religions have this knowledge, some for millenia. Now this pedant goes through "scientific proof" of something that has been obvious to millions of current and past people.

The good part is that some of them are at last waking up. Next step, let's hope they stop their prolific crimes.

Terrific comment

Thank you!

Your comment deserves in my personal opinion a thread of its own.

I'm so greatfull to have found such a great wisdom filled community of free people here on the Daily Paul.
