You Shall Know the Truth

The first time I reached my mother through a medium she said, “You were right about everything!” That was good to hear, but it made me groan because this woman had resisted all my efforts to convince her she would survive her death. I had read to her from The Fun of Dying. I had... Read More

The Extinction of the Ego

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 15, 2018 • 54 Comments

I am coming to see that until we each can find a way to vanquish our ego, achieving very much spiritual growth may be difficult or impossible for us. And our inability to grow spiritually would be calamitous for all the world! Growing spiritually is the reason why we even come to earth at all,... Read More

Brain-Hacks

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 08, 2018 • 9 Comments

One astonishing byproduct of the bogus scientific theory of materialism and its correlate certainty that consciousness has to be generated by the brain is the fact that so many scientists have become obsessed with developing brain-hacks. They are certain that your brain creates “you,” even though they have no idea how that happens; so now... Read More

Growing Spiritually

You may wonder why an afterlife researcher would write so ardently about the teachings of Jesus. Until recently I would have wondered about that, too! I have likely spent as much of my life studying the Bible as I have spent studying the afterlife evidence, but until a few years ago my two intense hobbies... Read More

Is There a God?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • November 10, 2018 • 25 Comments

The worst barrier between humankind and our ability to understand reality is the fact that we cannot ask the greatest of all questions factually. If we ask that question as it is asked in the title of this post, and even if we assume the question refers to the Christian God and not to Vishnu... Read More

Evolution Evolves

The consequences of scientists’ need to believe our material brains create consciousness are manifold and ridiculous. It is not much of an exaggeration to say that scientists’ obsession with materialism has so hobbled scientific inquiry as to make any further progress impossible! So why do they still cling to their materialist dogma? More and more,... Read More

Scientism vs. Religionism

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 27, 2018 • 19 Comments

It has been a little while since we last took a swipe at the Luddite field of scientific inquiry, but I keep finding on-point articles. Please indulge me while I share another of them now. The reason why I call my radio show and podcast Seek Reality is that everyone should be doing just that!... Read More

Thank you!!

I don’t say this often enough, but I love you. I cannot get over how wonderful it is to have you in my life! Just seeing an email from you with a question to answer makes me smile. Reading your personal story that leads to how you found me – and how I was able... Read More

Becoming Good Citizens of the World

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 13, 2018 • 18 Comments

A friend who often comments here has asked me why in this series of posts I have talked about the United States alone, when in his view it is time for Americans to become good citizens of all the world. He is precisely right! Imagine a world that has become one neighborhood, everyone watching out... Read More

Faith vs. Facts

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 29, 2018 • 61 Comments

It may not at first be obvious to you that the reason why righteous indignation is such a deadly plague in America now is the insidious influence of faith-based thinking. Theories abound that the decline of Christianity may be behind the increase in political extremism in America, but they vary as to why. It is... Read More
