Conference Presentation

Topic:  Can Parapsychology Save Religion?

Presentation on JB Rhine’s correlations of phenomena between the two fields, and my own observation that all the New Testament phenomena ‘miraculously’ conform to established and demonstrated areas within parapsychology.  Lacking mythological or ‘superheroic’ deeds, (e.g. ‘able to leap tall buildings in a single bound’) Jesus’ so-called miracles conformity to well-documented areas within parapsychology suggesting that they were accurately reported.   This would bring new (never previously considered) evidence to counter the notion of Jesus’s non-existence, except as a mythologically contrived figure.
