It is hard for us to understand how there could be an afterlife that is full of all the people who ever have lived on earth. After all, we can’t see it. We can’t even really imagine where it is. And until we are confident about how the afterlife physically fits with what we know,... Read More

This universe exists to give us a place where we can begin to grow spiritually. It may serve other purposes too, but I haven’t seen good ideas about that; and it is clear now that this material universe is key to the process of helping us all to embark upon an eternity of ever more... Read More

We enter these lifetimes on earth to experience negativity and learn how to rise above it so we can more effectively grow spiritually.

Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for? (from the poem “Andrea del Sarto” in Men and Women by Robert Browning, 1855) We have so much good evidence of what happens at and after death that it’s tragic that so few people are at all familiar with it. We... Read More

Explaining Death to a Child

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 07, 2019 • 32 Comments

When I first understood that death is a minor transition in someone’s eternal life, I stopped thinking much about the prevailing view of death as something negative. My foremost failing has become the fact that my first thought now on hearing about a death is actually happiness for the decedent. What else can you expect... Read More

Jesus has some wonderfully positive things to say about faith! He sees it as the engine that empowers our minds.

Is There a God?

The worst barrier between humankind and our ability to understand reality is the fact that we cannot ask the greatest of all questions factually.

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
