say: I do not know this, therefore it is false.
One must study to know, know to understand,
understand to evaluate.

If there are 100
different religions, who all with certainty claims different things,
you can definitly state that at least 99 of them must be wrong!
If we also bother to see how our religions once originated, and how
they have been adjusted and changed through the time, each and one of
us ought to realize that here are no easy answers.
In spite of this
there are a great number of people who definitly claims that their
religion has the only truth, and that you have to join their
Church to be able to come to heaven. Shouldnīt we humans have reached
further in our development then that? Is our need to believe in
something so strong that we, without critisism, are ready to buy
The Italian physicist Galileo Galilei once said: "God would
not have given us brains if he didnīt intend us to use them."
And what about
science? If we look back in history we can see how different theories
have succeeded each other. You easily get tricked to believe that
science always deals with exact matters, that can be controlled and
measured. But in reality itīs not very much we know for sure, and
science deals mostly with different theories and models.
showed that matter and energy seems to be an expression of something
that really is the same. But what is it then? We donīt know. We only
have models that describes the increasingly smaller particles we find.
We can see how energy can form into matter, and how matter can
transform into energy, but we have no coherent explanation to what it
actually is, or what happens at the transformations. Additionally, we
have not been able to explain a single force in the universe. We can
describe their size, we can measure them, but we canīt explain them.
Isaac Newton gave us a formula for the force of gravity between two
masses. But why is it there? What is it? We just donīt know. One
scientist said: "We know that matter exists, but we do not
know what it is. We know that it moves, but we do not know why".
That could be a good summarization of our present knowledge.
When the Danish
physicist Hans Christian Örstedt in 1820 discovered that there is a
magnetic field around an electric current, the scientific world found
it ridiculous. The people who openly laughed at Örstedt didnīt even
bother to make the simple experiment that he had done. Soon they all
had to reconcider, when the French physicist Ampére showed there is a
force between two electrical currents.
In 1915, the
German Alfred Wegener presented a theory that the continents are
moving. He had noted, among other things, that Africa and south America
seems to fit in each other, and he imagined they had once been
together. For this theory Wegener became ridiculed and humiliated for
the rest of his life, and when other scientists finally could show that
we was right, Wegener had already died. Today the theory of continental
drift is fully accepted.
History shows us
that these newthinkers by no means were isolated exceptions. On the
contrary there are lots of simular examples. When a great thinker steps
out of the established frames itīs almost a rule that he meets hard
opposition. Albert Einstein once said: "Great spirits have
always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds".
experiencies is something that science hesitates to investigate. The
reason for this seems to be that these experiencies implies there is
more than our physical reality. Since this possibility steps out of the
strictly materialistic thinking most scientists refuse to even concider
the possibility. Serious investigations are met with open contempt, or
they are simply unheard of.
In this way few
people have knowledge about the investigations of telepathy that has
been made in more than 15 university laboratories all around the world,
and who clearly states that telepathy exists. Yet fewer know of
experiment made on "Out of body experiencies", where they soon got
tired of proving one can get out of the body and instead dealt with
other, more interesting areas. Most people have probably heard that the
police sometimes uses psycics to get help in difficult murder cases.
Not so many know that CIA have trained their own psycics, "remote
wiewers", who have even helped in war situations.
But then of
coarse, if you like many scientists argue that it canīt be that way,
because it canīt be that way, itīs difficult to approach these
subjects. If you like many men of the Church today claim that "such
experiencies must come from the devil" (I have heard this
statement from priests several times) the door to knowledge also
remains closed. The men of the Church seem to forget that the prophets
in the Bible also had spiritual experiencies. They existed then as they
do now. The logic of the Church seems to be that spiritual experiencies
came from God in those days, but comes from the devil today.
Luckily there is
always a light at the end of the tunnel. Recently scientific newspapers
has published how random generators, who randomly produces digital
numbers, reacts every time a major human catastrophy occurs on Earth.
This has started a serious discussion among scientists if our human
mind in some way can affect these random generators. It is also noted
that the Danish scientist Niels Bohs had simular ideas already in the
beginning of the last century.
I have the
following claims for my continous discussion:
1. There is no religion who can claim the have the absolute truth.
Every religion is a collection of thoughts and ideas, created by
different persons during a long time, and they have also changed
2. Science can only explain a small fraction of our reality. Most
things are yet to be discovered.
3. There is more than our known physical reality, and we canīt explain
the world without seeing a connection with a nonphysical existence. We
cannot approach our reality without a "holistic"
perspective, where peoples inner experiencies must be included and
A person with
this point of wiew, and who also seeks answers to the mysteries of life
and reality, is usually called a seeker.
