life after death001I just received an advance copy of “The Life After Death Project” which will air on the Syfy channel May 15th. I plan to set aside my books for the evening and watch this documentary by Paul Davids.

A mesmerizing CSI-caliber quest for proof of life after death. Four New York Times best-selling authors, three top science professors and three well-respected mediums make a leap into the unknown, investigating astonishing evidence in the case of apparent “After Death Communication” (ADC) from Sci-Fi luminary Forrest J Ackerman. We journey from spiritualists to skeptics, and from chem labs to ground-breaking computer software that may enable communication between the living and the deceased.

Is there anything to it? I’ll let you know …

Angry Druids

A SENIOR Druid is campaigning against plans by English Heritage to display human remains at the new Stonehenge visitor centre.

King Arthur Pendragon says that remains excavated from the world heritage site should be re-buried, and models and replicas put on public display instead.

The £27million visitor centre at Airman’s Corner is due to open later this year with a large exhibition space aiming to give visitors a better understanding of the history of Stonehenge and its significance.

I can imagine how he feels. The body of the St. Bees man may be connected to my family and I feel uncomfortable about the thought of it being on display. Having said that, Pendragon’s neo-pagans, who take their inspiration from what they believe ancient pagans practiced, sound like anti-intellectual Christian fundamentalists.

Stonehenge belongs to the world and it’s mysteries should be explored, debated, and analyzed. It should be a source of inspiration for the young and the young-at-heart. If you want plastic skulls, there is always Disney World.
