"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."
– John D. Ralphs

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 reply

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 therein.

Before he writes further on the subject, he might wish to study the objectively ranked "Survival Top 40," which may be found at 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 a half.
