Human Rights Committee.
In his work as a
lawyer, Zammit became a 'professional skeptic' since
he was never in a position to believe anyone unless
the client had objective evidence to support the client's
claims. He feels that he holds a comparative advantage
over most skeptics when dealing with afterlife evidence
because of his professional expertise in knowing what
technically constitutes admissible evidence and his
formal qualifications in Scientific Method and Psychology.
suspicious of the New Age Movement for what appeared
to be its blatant commercial exploitation of people's
basic instinctual tendency for spiritual development,
after many years as an open-minded skeptic, Zammit had
a number of repeated psychic/mediumistic experiences
which set him questioning, reading, and researching.
Adopting a scientific criterion, he was able to select
that information which could withstand and pass the
many rigid tests of repeatability and objectivity. Currently,
he does afterlife investigations virtually seven days

article by journalist Francis Wilkins about Zammit's
empirical afterlife research appeared in the ultra-conservative
lawyers' journal Lawyers' Weekly on 27 April
Since 2001, Victor
Zammit has sponsored a one-million-dollar challenge
to anyone in the world who can rebut the existing evidence
for the afterlife. Up 'til now, no scientist, no physicist,
no biologist, no psychologist, no empiricist, no skeptical
debunker - no one has been able to show where, when,
how, or why the evidence is invalid.
