Terminal vs Eternal

I wish to focus today’s spotlight on the idea central to some sort of survival following physical death. “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 62% of American Adults believe in life after death. Just 17% do not, but 20% are still unsure if there’s an afterlife.”1 That said, “Fewer Americans say they believe in God or pray regularly — yet more people believe in an afterlife nonetheless, a new study finds. It’s a generational thing, with millennials the least likely generation to say they’re religious or to take the Bible literally, the team at San ...

Are Premonitions Real?

In today’s spotlight I would like to discuss the idea that we all may in some way be connected to one mind, a collective mind, the collective unconscious as suggested by Carl Jung, or one larger sense of intelligence that exists—and that we draw upon it from time to time. Think for a moment about your own experiences. Have you ever had a premonition that came true? Have you ever thought of someone just before that person rang you on the phone? Have you ever had a gut feeling that warned you—only to discover why the warning a short time ...

Suggestibility

In today’s spotlight I would like to discuss the power of suggestion. I have often addressed the various sorts of primes that can influence our decisions, such as the presence of a hand sanitizer. This is how it might work. Provide a computerized test designed to measure conservative or liberal attitudes, wait a few minutes after the subject finishes the test, bring the subject back into the test room on the pretense that there was a computer glitch, and have them take the same test again, but this time with a jar of hand sanitizer on the desk where they ...

Believe or Not

In today’s spotlight I would like to discuss something I have been working on recently—the idea that I Could Have Been An Atheist. Every week I interview some of the brightest and most informed people on our planet and I consider myself lucky to have such an opportunity. Very often our guest is a well qualified scientist, and/or an expert in their field, and they inform us that the notion of a god is but a left-over from a time when folks failed to understand the world they live in—a supernatural story that replaces the failure of understanding. Science and ...

Sins of the Father

In today’s spotlight I would like to address the notion often referred to as “sins of the father.” The Bible informs us according to Exodus 20:5, “You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me.” However, later in the Bible we can find many verses such as this one from Deuteronomy 24:16, “Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put ...

Freedom In Forgiveness

Many years ago I was asked if the technology I developed, InnerTalk, might be used with an incarcerated population to lower aggression and hostility, and otherwise assist in rehabilitation efforts. As such, in the mid 1980s, together with two colleagues, we set up the first double-blind study of it’s kind to test this idea. Hypothesis The hypothesis was straight forward: change the way people think, their self-talk, and you’ll change their expectation, and that will lead to changing their behavior. Little did I know at the time how remarkably true this simple hypothesis would turn out to be, but as ...
