It’s an Avatar

One of the things I love about public speaking is that so often people will remind me that they find some things hard to understand. I can lose track of how mind-bending some of these concepts are! And no matter how carefully I might write, if people’s minds are catching on something that seems so... Read More

GUEST POST: Victor and Wendy Zammit are the world’s leading afterlife experts.

God and the Materialist Delusion

Posted by Roberta Grimes • June 14, 2016 • 15 Comments

By now we can be certain that the Christian God does not exist. After decades of doing afterlife research and collaborating extensively with other researchers, I can state without equivocation that there is no anthropomorphic God that judges us and condemns us to hell. Wonderfully, though, what exists instead is the loving Spirit that Jesus... Read More

“The Men of Her City Shall Stone Her”

Posted by Roberta Grimes • June 05, 2016 • 27 Comments

I have just read a blog-rant by someone who calls himself a Christian against Jan Crouch, the co-founder of Trinity Broadcasting Network, who recently died. I have no idea what a woman who spent forty years building the largest Christian broadcasting network on earth might have done to offend this Bible-thumper! But he used a... Read More

Who Are You?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • April 29, 2016 • 4 Comments

The fundamental question of human existence is this: who and what are human beings? The scientific community is confident that we are only the latest iteration of an evolutionary process that goes back to living cells appearing in primordial soup; while Christians see us as the fallen and inadequate creations of a stern Godhead. Neither... Read More

The True Meaning of Easter

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 28, 2016 • 32 Comments

No one who enjoyed last Sunday’s celebrations – all pastel flowers and chocolate eggs and carving a ham on the holiday table – can have given any serious thought to what Easter is supposed to mean. Christians refer to Jesus as our “Savior” and “Redeemer.” Those words so gaily trip off the tongue! God proved... Read More

Scientific Shark-Jumping

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 14, 2016 • 6 Comments

The fact that mainstream science marries dogmas with what is supposed to be an open-minded pursuit of the truth is tying today’s scientists into knots. Groundbreaking research is being hampered; inventions that make no sense are being touted; and, with it all, a vast new source of expert help is being rejected out of hand.... Read More

When Children Die

(Adapted from an article published in the March newsletter of Helping Parents Heal, a wonderful source of support for bereaved parents. Go to for information and assistance. You are not alone.)   The death of a child may be the most painful experience that life can bring. For most, the grief is a process... Read More

Transgender Folly

Posted by Roberta Grimes • February 29, 2016 • 19 Comments

One of the things I lately have come to accept is that I don’t have a private life. If any of my personal experiences might help you, and even if it embarrasses me, I no longer have the right to keep it from you. So, okay, here is a big one. I was born transgendered.... Read More
