What if Everyone Knew the Truth?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 06, 2016 • 32 Comments

The fact that our two most trusted institutions still keep us ignorant of the nature of reality and of our own eternal natures is the source of every one of our problems. From poverty and criminality through hatred, oppression, war and greed, all the fear-based evils that plague us stem from this odd alliance between... Read More

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

Timeless and Spaceless

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

As we attempt to make ever better sense of what actually is going on, the hardest concept for most of us to grasp is the fact that in nearly all of reality there is no objective time or space. I’m more used to it now, and I think I begin to understand the science of... Read More

GUEST POST: Victor and Wendy Zammit are the world’s leading afterlife experts. For decades they have fearlessly battled all who would deny humankind these truths, and they even have posted a million-dollar challenge for anyone who can prove that the afterlife evidence in their wonderful book, A Lawyer Presents the Evidence for the Afterlife, is...

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

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

Let’s Get Real

Posted by Roberta Grimes • February 21, 2016 • 14 Comments

I am coming to think that the leading intellectual challenge of our time, and perhaps the foremost barrier to any further human progress, is the insidious notion of dualism in the study of reality. We all take for granted the idea that there is a scientific way of approaching reality, and also a religious point... Read More

Material Consciousness?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • February 09, 2016 • 22 Comments

People tell me that my approach to scientific cluelessness has been too harsh. I’ve got to cut these people more slack! Fair enough. The fact that almost a century has passed as we waited for scientists to realize that the study of matter is a dead-end game may not be reason enough for me to... Read More

Missing Something Big

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 22, 2016 • 33 Comments

The foolish adherence of mainstream science to the false dogma of materialism is now more than a century old. And materialism has brought us so much pain! It has forced brilliant scientists to waste their careers in pursuing baseless dead-end theories while it continues to keep humankind in unnecessary ignorance and fear. The damage caused...

Remembering Who You Truly Are

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 20, 2015 • 18 Comments

The Fun of Dying was first published in 2010. It includes an appendix that demonstrates the many ways that the dead affirm in detail the Gospel teachings of Jesus. Eventually someone asked me whether the teachings of Jesus actually work. Wow, what a great question! I thought I ought to find out. So as an... Read More
