"It is time that sceptical scientists abandoned
this absurd concept that humanity includes a tiny minority
of sensible, level-headed, logical and completely trustworthy
scientists, and everyone else may be freely assumed to be
either a thundering liar or extremely ignorant and stupid."

Responses To Periodicals
We rely on you and other members to monitor
the periodicals you receive and let us know when we
might respond with a letter (on official AECES letterhead)
to the author or editor of the piece. Send us any published
writing that questions the reality of an afterlife or suggests
that belief in such is a matter or personal opinion rather
than demonstrated fact. If you cannot scan the article to
send it via e-mail, please clip it out or photocopy it and
mail it to us. You are more than welcome to send along a draft
So, be on the lookout for opportunities whenever
you view a relevant magazine, newspaper, newsletter, or journal
article and help spread the word. The idea is not to win an
argument, or even to engage in one, but to make interested
parties aware of the existence of AECES and the facts provided

"The Unbearable Uncanniness of Being"
Response mailed on 26 July 2012
To Ms Kaja Perina, Editor in Chief
Regarding "The Unbearable Uncanniness of Being"
(August 2012), Matthew Huston is certainly correct in pointing
out that all that seems paranormal or psychic is not necessarily
so. But, if he truly believes that "the most compelling
evidence for a visitation is what's called a sense of presence"
- which "perhaps" is a "hallucination"
- then he must be unaware of the vast amount of solid evidence
for the interaction between our physical world and the realm
of discarnate spirits. Before he writes further on the subject,
he might wish to study the objectively ranked "Survival
Top 40," which may be found at www.afterlifeproof.org.
It is not a matter of belief; it is a matter of rational analysis
of the facts gathered and attested to by scientists, doctors,
and other professional researchers over the past century and
