Congratulations to Dr. Stafford Betty, our Religious Studies professor who has recently published his new book titled, When Did You Ever Become Less by Dying available via Amazon.com.
In this book Professor Stafford Betty pulls together the best evidences for survival of death. The very best, he maintains, come from psychical research. The near-death experience, deathbed visions, reincarnational memories of children, communication from the so-called dead through mediums, apparitions, poltergeists, spirits that reach out to us through electronic instruments, spirits that attach themselves to our bodies, and episodes of terminal lucidity in Alzheimer's patients are all included. Betty brings together memorable examples and careful analysis of each type of evidence. He shows that life after death, as mysterious as it is, should no longer be regarded as a mere hypothesis, but, like dark matter and energy, a very likely fact.
