Is there some reason you ignore my friend requests and messages on facebook? I keep trying to talk to you and you keep ignoring me. What have I done that offends you?

Please accept my apologies; it has nothing to do with you. My FaceBook account was hacked or compromised in some way by an identity thief pretending to be me. Since that experience, I no longer communicate with anyone using FaceBook.
See the comments after the Contact Me page, and the comments after the Vic on FaceBook page. If you are interested in where I caught the guy, see also the comments after the I Told You So page and the Shaharokh Sharifazi page.
It's nothing personal; I just don't chat and jabber on social media any more. Here, I do. Nothing gets posted on this website by anyone other than me. There is no real control over your own account in social media, and that's the reason.

I love your site, and I've been trying to read as much as possible over the last few weeks. I agree with most everything you've written, but I've struggled with my faith over the years and am not exactly sure what to believe in anymore.
I've recently read the work of Ian Stevenson who made a living studying the claims of reincarnation, and I believe he has made a pretty good case for it (along with numerous cases for it). In addition, there are a multitude of Near-Death-Experiences in which the experiences not only taught reincarnation, but all the experiences seem to suggest that while there is a God, there appears to be no such place as hell, or even Satan.
However, I despise the New Age philosophy because they are almost all leftists, and preach that there is no such thing as evil, which I strongly disagree with. I find myself identifying much more with the Catholic faith then with any New Age religion, but, I can't seem to get my mind of of these two major points, which both are in direct opposition to the Churches teaching.
I was just wondering what your thoughts are on the subject of reincarnation and NDEs. Is there evidence that suggests that reincarnation isn't real and NDEs are just a product of the mind?

Sorry for the delay in responding, but I have been having computer problems.
The difference between Catholicism and non-Christian, non-Jewish religions is vast. When different kinds of Christians and different kinds of Jews argue religious points with each other, they argue about differing recognitions and interpretations of that which they all recognize as Revelation. It is a body of knowledge revealed to man by God. It is not so with other religious belief systems.
In all other religions, man sought God, and came up with some hopeful representation of what they thought God should or could be. In Judeo-Christianity, alone, God came to man. In no other religion is this true. He Who made it all, Who made man, also made freedom, or liberty, and placed it in the heart of man, out of love.
wanted man to love God, and love is only possible in the presence of
liberty, because if love is not given freely, it is not love. But
freedom allows wrong decisions; the propensity of love given freely
accompanies the propensity of hate, and of wrong choices freely made.
At first, He walked and talked with man in the Garden. After the fall, He came to Noah, to save a remnant. He tested Abraham. He sent Johah to save Niniveh. He inspired Moses, gave him the Law and equipped him as a leader. Finally, He sent Himself, in the "person" of Jesus the Redeemer, to take upon Himself our guilt, to free us from our sin, if we would be free of it, and to show us the Way.
For those looking for worldly proofs, much of salvation history as recorded in Scripture is solidly backed up by archaeological and non-Scriptural historical evidences. For those looking for logical proofs, the ancient Greeks, and perhaps others, arrived at the conclusion of the singularity of God from the Primal First Mover argument, described in the faith versus atheism page. This argument says that even if there be other gods, they must have been created by the original god. Something had to be first.
It is not by science or by logic that you will find ultimate salvation, but by faith, hope and love. Read the first chapter of John. It's all right there.
Regarding reincarnation and near death experiences, all I can say is, the only supporting evidences are ephemeral, which is to say, not physical. It consists solely of reports by fallible human beings about experiences and or dreams. Whether any particular event as reported was inspired by God, or by angels, or by demons, or merely by the mind that told the story is indeterminate.
For me, the test of whether such an imagining or dream or story might have validity is whether it supports or contradicts Revelation - the protected deposit of faith from which we draw hope. The Revelation does not change. (There is no reincarnation in the Revelation.) If the event or report supports or at least does not contradict Revelation, which is to say, it does not ad to it, subtract from it or change it, then, it may be true.
Regarding the existence of Satan
and Hell, Bishop Sheen and others have pointed out the fact that Satan
is never happier and never makes more progress in the world he rules
than when his potential victims do not even believe that he exists.

Thanks for your response, I appreciate it. I will look into the archaeological evidence. I enjoy reading your site, and look forward to reading more in the future.

To Eric, re your submission Thu Apr 07 2017:
Your comment seemed more appropriate to the Mitochondrial Eve page than to this general web activity log, so I put it after that Webpage. The link will take you there.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
