Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. Why do you think the evidence for the afterlife
Answer: I equate 'objective' evidence with 'scientific'
evidence. When a formula can be duplicated over time and
space and you get the same results, that is being objective
or scientific. In the book I mention EVP, Instrumental Transcommunication
(ITC) and some twenty other psychic phenomena including
mediumship, out of body experiences and near death experiences
in which, when variables are held constant, the same results
Q2. Ought not the proven historical religious argument
be more persuasive than the information you have in your
Answer: No. This is because traditional religion
is purely subjective not scientific. For example, no one
can use science to prove that Jesus died for the ungodly.
It is universally accepted that anything 'subjective' is
itself subject to fundamental errors and to complete invalidation
that is why we have many different religions all claiming
they have the 'truth.' Further, with subjectivity you can
never ever have legitimate, objective 'authority.' Evidence
for the afterlife is now irretrievably objective. Whenever
there is an inconsistency between science and religion,
inevitably, science prevails, and will always prevail. The
classic example is the case of Galileo a conflict between
science and theology. Theology inexorably had to give way
Q3. Surely, you cannot argue against what is in the
Answer: If you read all the evidence I presented
you would have to agree that in fact psychic researchers
are giving scientific evidence for the existence of the
afterlife. It seems that conditions in the afterlife are
not 'standard' - i.e., there are gradations from the lowest
sphere to the highest. It is not unreasonable to state that
this is consistent with the Christian notion of hell and
purgatory (for the Catholics - the medium lower sphere)
and the upper spheres which can rightly be called 'heaven.'
But while there are darker, lower spheres, there is no such
thing as 'eternal hellfire' that was a concoction by an
unscrupulous ecclesiastic Biblical translators.
Q4. You said there is no such thing as eternal hellfire
- you're wrong. The Bible says there is.
Answer: You will find the English translation talking
about 'eternal hellfire' but NOT the original Greek version.
Deal with the original not the translations. For too many
centuries Christians were deliberately misled about eternal
damnation. Some devious Church writer deliberately and intentionally
mistranslated a critical word- 'eon.' You will find that
whenever 'eon' immediately preceded punishment in the Bible
such as hell, this Church translator erroneously and knowingly
mistranslated eon to mean 'eternal.' And elsewhere, whenever
the same word eon was used, the translator used eon to mean
what it truly means, 'a period of time' - in the time of
Jesus it was 100 years. Check for yourself. This wilful
mistranslation was a deliberate policy by the Church to
create unnecessary fear - see a very detailed explanation
of this and other deliberate Biblical mistranslations in
Communication with the Spirit World of God by J Greber
Q5. Why are some Christians hostile to Spiritualism?
Answer: Sheer ignorance. Most Christians - and I
do come from a Christian background myself -are sequacious
and accept theology blindly without investigating, without
trying to test anything for validity. They don't criticise
the teaching, the theology and allow themselves to be very
easily led. Blind faith is dangerous. But there are many
spiritualists who are Christians and others who embrace
many aspects of Christianity. For those brave Christians
who want to investigate, to know the truth about Christianity
I strongly recommend Arthur Findlay's The Rock of Truth,
Kersey Graves' The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviours,
Peter De Rosa's Vicars of Christ, the Rev Robert
Taylor's The Diegesis. Perceive the information with
equanimity and I will guarantee you dramatic spiritual transformation
Recent intolerance and unnecessary hostility: Spiritualists
and most people in the UK must have felt enormous disgust
at the disturbance by the Christian leaflet-waving Pentecostals
Nazi-like thugs who tried to disrupt a psychic meeting on
the Isle of Man. This particular Christian sect are people
who are ignorant about the genesis of Christianity, ignorant
of the fact that Christianity is a personal belief system,
ignorant about the objectivity of spiritualism and ignorant
about observing the ethics of tolerance of other people's
beliefs, values and empirically based information about
religion, psi and afterlife evidence.
Q6. What is the greatest problem for Christianity?
Answer: Very briefly, I believe that Pagan Mithraic
Sunworshipper Emperor Constantine, who initiated and was
to preside over the Council of Nicea in 325 AD is one of
the biggest problems. His influence brought a great deal
of unacceptable theological inconsistency and much intolerance.
Through him all 'Christian' spiritual writings had to conform
to the Council's decisions. This is important because he
influenced and paved the way for what was to eventually
be allowed to go in the Christian Bible. It was at this
Council that Jesus was turned into a God by violent lobbying
and by vote!
It is ironic in the extreme that someone who was not even
a Christian was the one who actually decided what fundamental
Christian theology would be about. The creed 'I Believe'
which is recited every day in many Christian services, was
originally composed at the Council of Nicea in 325 AD. The
Rev Robert Taylor in his Diegiesis (1977 reprint)
on page 348 states that Constantine, the founder of Christian
theology, is on historical record for, inter alia,
brutally murdering six members of his family, beheading
his own eleven year old son Crispus, throwing his own wife
Fausta into a bath of boiling water, also killing Maximian,
his wife's father, Bassianus, his sister Anastasia's husband,
Liciniaus, his nephew, Sopater his former spiritual advisor
and Licinius, his sister Constantina's husband. Pagan Emperor
Constantine was not baptised until just before he died in
333 AD circa. He was also influential in completing
the trend to ousting of psychic mediums from the temples.
These once-Mithraic temples were converted to Christian
churches by the Christians thereafter. Spiritualism is on
much safer grounds because of its objectivity whereas Christianity,
inevitably calls for blind faith.
Q7. Does it really make any difference whether one is
Christian or one is a Spiritualist?
Answer: I do not go for labels myself. A spiritual
person will always be a good person whether that person
is a Christian or a Spiritualist or anything else. The fundamental
difference is that whereas there are too many Christians
who wrongly believe that salvation is obtained by faith
alone. Spiritualists including Christian Spiritualists,
understand that doing selfless service and showing love
are more critical, more vital and more immediately directly
relevant than just unquestioning blind religious faith.
This very important evidence about what increases spirituality
comes directly from very highly accredited intelligences
such as Silver Birch, White Eagle and so many others. repeatedly
Q8. Have many sceptics applied for the million dollar
reward if they can rebut the evidence for the afterlife?
Answer: Oh yes, a few did. Whenever I inform them
what they have to do - rebutting mostly the objective evidence
I included in my book on the net, they do not write back.
A few academic sceptics complained that the test 'proving
beyond possible doubt' is impossible. Their claim is "nothing
is absolutely certain in this world." My reply is that
this is the test that the skeptics are demanding! And since
the cash reward is very high so must be the test of validity.
Besides, I stated, of course, there are certain things which
are absolutely certain in this world. For example, I made
the statement about the mortality of the human condition
-we humans physically die. One American Ph.D sceptic tried
to argue with me that no one can prove that!! I just replied,
if he could show me that President Kennedy is not dead,
or Princess Diana or Mother Theresa or Elvis Presley are
not dead, my sponsors will gladly hand over the million
Q9. You are making an offer which is impossible to prove
because 'you can't prove the negative'. Can you explain
Answer: I am NOT asking anyone to 'prove the negative.'
I received many emails from skeptics saying that - but they
themselves have not read my challenge - they read the website
of some skeptic who deliberately misled them about what
I have on my website. Then these skeptics waste my time
repeating what some other skeptic has deliberately misrepresented
about my offer.
If the reader goes to my home page - it is clearly expressly
stated that the challenge is about rebutting the 'EXISTING
EVIDENCE.' The evidence is in my book - click on the BOOK
on the homepage - you will then see the evidence which has
to be rebutted - chapters 3 to 24. Now, that is NOT proving
the negative. That is technical evidence which is admissible
in a court of law - all the way up to the Supreme Court
of the United States, the High Court of England and the
High Court of Australia and in all civilised countries in
the world. I state that only lawyers know what technically
constitutes admissible evidence. Check with your own lawyer.
That skeptical stage magician who has been disseminating
negative propaganda to fool the uninformed knows absolutely
NOTHING about laboratory experimentation and what constitutes
admissible technical evidence.
Q10. Have you ever had an afterlife experience?
Answer: Of course I have! In 1990 the psychic group
which was founded by Dr Fransesco Coll who was then based
in Washington DC was co-ordinating psychic groups in many
parts of the world. In one instance he showed me a technique
on how to contact intelligences from the other side. In
one workshop there were a 115 people. I interviewed many
of them and all stated they were communicating the same
way I was. Many of these people were highly intelligent
- many were teachers with university degrees, nurses, managers.
One of them was a stockbroker. I was the only lawyer. I
was there primarily to investigate if the technique could
be objectively demonstrated. It happened with some people
but not with others. Negative people exude too much negativity
to allow the free flow of positive energy to manifest. They
are allowing negative intervening variables to intrude and
disrupt otherwise positive results. This has been empirically
Q11. Is your research religious?
Answer: No, my research is scientific - NOT religious.
As I stated in my book, science is objective. This means
that if I give you a formula and this formula is used over
time and in different countries and from this formula you
get the same results - then that is scientific, that is
being objective. Religion is subjective; it is personal
beliefs unsupported by science. But whenever there is an
inconsistency between science and theology, inevitably,
science prevails. I give you every right to your personal
beliefs - it is a fundamental right. But go to my Chapter
1 Opening Statement for more details.
Q12. Is skepticism scientific?
Answer: Skepticism is NOT scientific! Skepticism,
like religion cannot be independently substantiated. A skeptic
may say, "I believe in nothing - but I cannot prove
that." This is because skepticism is subjective - anything
subjective is subject to complete invalidation. For more
information I refer you to my OPENING STATEMENT which is
chapter 1 in my book.
Q13. Why do people see psychic issues in a different
Answer: First this has to do with how much research
a person has done. Someone who has NOT done any research
will not be in position to know what is going on. For example,
if a person did a lot of research in medicine, obtained
qualifications and became a doctor then became a specialist
and now performs heart transplants, that person is certainly
more professional and more skilfully advanced in his field
than say, an academic or a stage magician or a clerk or
a tradesman or a manager. It is to do with depth of specialisation.
Q14. Why is it that some academics do not agree about
the existence of the afterlife or about psychic phenomena.
Answer: Yes, a few academics make it a career to
be against anything related to psychic phenomena. But there
are many academics allow for the existence of psychic phenomena
(psi). They do this to get promotion because they know that
some university sponsors are materialistic. So these academics
become subservient to the sponsors values' and keep obtaining
negative results in psi.
Q15. Why is it that highly educated academics continue
to obtain negative results?
Answer: First, if a professor does not do any research
about psychic phenomena, that professor will be ignorant
about psychic phenomena and will not have the authority
to make any comments on psi. Secondly, there is an experimental
term called, "the intruding negative variable.' This
means that when an academic experimenter or anybody else
who has a track record of negativity, the academic experimenter
actually influences the results to become negative. Empirical
evidence, in quantum physics validates this observation.
This is one of the grounds I cited why any applicant who
wants to apply for the skeptics alleged offer can never
beat the skeptics' challenge - see my article on why it
is impossible to win the skeptics' money offer - click on
SKEPTICS on the home page.
Q16. Why is it that no one has been able to beat the
Answer: This is because it is impossible to beat
the challenge. For full details see WHY NOBODY CAN WIN THE
SKEPTICS CHALLENGE - A LAWYER'S PERSPECTIVE go to homepage
and click on SKEPTICS.
Q17. What's the relevance of your many academic qualifications
to your claim of the validity for the afterlife?
Answer: first, my majors in Psychology from the
University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia gave
me highly complex skills in Scientific Method which is an
adjunct to three years in Psychology. As an investigator,
it is critical to be fully equipped with the expertise to
identify what is relevant, what is not. Those not qualified,
say, stage magicians, cannot conduct experiments properly
at a level where their conclusions could be valid.
Secondly, my qualifications and expertise in Law give me
a huge comparative advantage to professionally identify
what is admissible in evidence and what is not. Only litigation
lawyers know what is admissible evidence, not entertainers,
not magicians, not statisticians or other non qualified
Thirdly, a degree in Psychology gives me an advantage because
psychology has to do with professional assessment of the
mind, human behaviour, understanding different levels of
awareness and much more.
Because of my academic qualifications I was involved in
matters concerning intelligence in State police enforcement
- this immediately necessitated, refined and greatly expedited
my open minded skepticism (as distinct from closed minded
These university qualifications and my extensive professional
work give me a uniqueness to identify what to accept, what
Q19. So you believe in the afterlife?
Victor: I do not particularly believe in the afterlife.
I accept the evidence for the afterlife. I do not have the
luxury of beliefs because beliefs are personal, are subjective,
are not empirical, are not scientific. And any personal
belief, any subjective belief is itself subject to complete
invalidation. In other words, I accept the twenty three
areas of empirical evidence for the afterlife I researched
– see my book on the Net – www.victorzammit.com
Q20. How certain, how sure are you that the afterlife
V. Absolutely certain! I am absolutely sure, I am one hundred
per cent certain that when we humans physically die, we
cross over to the afterlife but our duplicate etheric body
– the spirit body - continues to exist. As I said,
this is not based on a belief or wishful thinking or religion
or superstition. My acceptance of the afterlife is primarily
based on my own experiences and the empirical, objective
Q21. What is this acceptance of the afterlife then
V: The most persuasive evidence is my own experience of
entities communicating with me through telepathy. I am clairaudient
– I can hear spirit voices telepathically –
clairaudient experiences I’ve had for the last sixteen
years. In addition, there are powerful afterlife experiment
and studies by world famous scientists – see second
chapter of my book about these scientists. There are also
others I know and trust who informed me that they had similar
afterlife experiences …
Q22. What other personal afterlife experiences
have you had?
V. Some sixteen years ago I studied psychic phenomena in
depth and was tutored by experts in mediumship. I became
clairaudient. My own father came through and after spending
some time authenticating who he was, I was satisfied beyond
any doubt that the contact was genuine. I asked questions
that only he and I knew about. But just let me qualify this:
I am intelligent, I am healthy in mind and body –
and we know that throughout history there have been a number
of people who were clairaudient. For example, Joan of Arc
Q23. This means you hear voices in the head?
V. Absolutely, even if it’s put rather bluntly but
… accurately. There are empirical studies in the Society
for Psychical Research which shows the empirical validity
of telepathy. Of course, telepathy means the transfer of
thoughts from mind to another mind on this planet earth
and from the afterlife dimension to earth. I suppose thoughts
can be voices in some way.
Q24. Have not there been cases where violent people
claim to have heard voices in the head?
V. That may be true because one has to ascertain who is
sending the voices. Voices that come from the afterlife
darker realm – which is a realm where mischievous
entities roam around do cause a lot of trouble on earth.
The voices and messages can come through electronic voice
phenomena, through instrumental trance-communication, the
ouija board or through mediumship. The example is similar
to you getting some obscene phone calls. But you may also
get phone calls from others who are not obscene or rude
or crude or offensive, but are sophisticated, more polite,
more refined, more knowledgeable.
Q25. Why is it that many people do not accept there
is an afterlife?
V. That’s very easily explained. These skeptics you
mentioned have not done any research on the paranormal.
As a matter of fact closed minded skeptics and debunkers
do not read paranormal information which gives them huge
anxiety if they have to read it. So they don’t. There
are of course the professional hard core skeptics with an
irretrievably closed mind who are on a crusade against those
who present the evidence for the afterlife and the paranormal.
For the open-minded person, there is more than enough evidence
to convince them that the afterlife and the paranormal exist.
Q26. What about those highly qualified, high profiled
scientists and psychologists in the skeptics’ organization
who keep on harping that there is no afterlife, no psi?
V. What I said earlier goes for them as well. The fact
is that if they could prove they are right, they would apply
to beat my one million dollars challenge I have on the Net.
But they haven’t. And they won’t. Most interesting
is that while there are hundreds of quality books written
about the reality and validity of the afterlife - these
books written by some of the most intelligent scientists
who ever walked on this planet earth - there is NOT one
book written by any of these materialist giants of science
who wrote a book giving reasons why the afterlife does not
or cannot exist.
Q27. How do you view religion then?
V. I do not interfere in people’s religious beliefs.
What they believe in is their business. My focus is on the
empirical – that is, using scientific method to measure
some psychic phenomena. But if some religious person tells
me that I am wrong, I ask him what objective evidence he
or she is citing to show that I am wrong. Incidentally,
in the last twenty years or so, no theologian or religious
person has ever asked me that. All agreed that religion
is subjective and science is objective.
Q28. How do you find the truth then?
V. As an empiricist and a lawyer with technical knowledge
of what technically constitutes admissible evidence I use
scientific method to get to the truth. If something is repeated
over time and space and yields the same results - keeping
variables constant - then I can state I found the truth.
To put it simplistically, 7+5=12 – that can never
be wrong. It is repeatable. But if you say to me that a
divorced Catholic is committing some heinous sin by remarrying
and will go to hell for eternity – that is something
which can never empirically be proved. In religious writings
there is nothing which is subject to empirical testing.
We get all the time, “you must have faith”.
But intelligent people from all credible universities around
the world will immediately tell you that faith is no authority
for objective truth. The only faith I would like to have
is when whatever I have faith in can be backed up empirically.
That I know I am dealing with the truth, the whole truth
and nothing but the truth - and I can never be wrong, never!
Q29. What do you say to the reports that there
is a lot of inconsistent information coming from the otherside
V. That’s not difficult to explain. This is like
getting general information from a 10 year old and someone
with a university degree. In the afterlife there are different
realms from the lowest vibrating realm to the highest. The
lowest realm, the lower end of the Astral level is dark
with very low vibrations – some religionists people
call ‘hell.’ Then the realm of the light is
usually the third level where most decent folk end up after
their life on earth.
Q30. Where did you get this information about the
afterlife and why is that not a belief?
V. First, as I said earlier, anything which is empirically
repeated and gets the same results, I know I am dealing
with something substantive. Now the information about the
afterlife comes from mediumship. This mediumship has been
subject to empirical studies by empiricists – for
example, Prof Gary Schwartz and others. Besides, I also
had experiences to confirm what Prof Gary Schwartz empirically
tested. That is not a belief, that is empirical evidence
about the afterlife. The afterlife transmissions are most
critical because we get to know what exists in the afterlife
directly, by highly credible eye-witnesses, not by someone
who lived on earth some 2,000 years ago we do not know his
background, who he is or where he comes from.
Q31. Do you accept that people on earth will eventually
meet their loved ones who passed on?
V. Where there is a heart to heart link, it is guaranteed
that there will be a reunion when the one on earth eventually
crosses over to the afterlife dimension. Highly credible
information from the afterlife repeatedly stated that. Love
we are informed is the most powerful force in the universe
– and physical death can never sever the heart to
heart link, never. However, there are exceptions.
Q32. What exceptions?
V. First, let me state a scientific truism: for every action
there is an opposite and equal reaction. So it also happens
in spiritual physics. There is a consequence to everything
we do on earth. The soul gets higher vibrations through
interaction with other people, especially when we are unselfish,
fair, reasonable, just and equitable. But, if a person is
consistently cruel, selfish and even brutal, the soul’s
vibrations are automatically reduced. This kind of a person
is likely to have a fairly rough time on crossing over because
a person with low vibrations is automatically pulled down
to the realm of the same low vibrations to accommodate the
same vibrations. There is no St Peter, no Pearly Gates,
no one there to judge you. You judge yourself by the level
of accumulated vibrations you gained throughout your life
on physical earth.
Q33. But are not there psychics who do not agree
V. Again, not all psychics are spiritually advanced. Besides,
there is a most important difference between someone who
is psychic and someone who is spiritually advanced. Psychics
may demonstrate their psychic skills but that does not mean
they are in fact spiritual. Those psychics who are not spiritually
advanced could be dangerous. But someone who is psychic
and also highly spiritual, then you have pure gold. So that
the qualitative, spiritually advanced psychics usually agree
with what is afterlife valid knowledge.
Q34. But aren’t there many so called psychics
who deceive the public?
V. Frauds you get everywhere because of the human condition.
But let me qualify that: there are people who are not psychic
and are not who they claim they are - and try to fleece
the public of their hard earned income. That is unfair.
That is unjust. That is criminal. Then you get the second
class of people who are a little bit psychically gifted.
But unless they are accurate they should not take any money
from the public. The pure gold, as I mentioned earlier,
is where you have spiritually advanced and psychically gifted
mediums – they are not easy to access, sometimes impossible
Q. 35. Do you yourself have any psychic insights
when talking to people?
V. Interesting you should ask that because sometimes I
get psychic insights – and sometimes not.
Q. 36. What about those big time scientists who
specifically wrote against the paranormal and the afterlife?
V. The ones I came across over the years - Professor Richard
Dawkins, Professor Carl Sagan and those other negative psychologists
I have on my net I rebutted – those giants of science
thinking because they are scientists they have ‘authority’
about anything on earth. They may be good materialist scientists
but NOT ONE OF THEM ever rebutted the objective evidence
for the afterlife – not one! They have NO OBJECTIVE
AUTHORITY at all when they deal with psi. The rule is that
they can’t have a valid argument without objective
authority. I have my rebuttals on these scientists who have
shown they are really ignorant about anything paranormal
– go to my homepage www.victorzammit.com . I was so
amazed reading Prof Carl Sagan’s attacks on the paranormal
where he confused everyone about mediumship: he confused
trance-mediumship with mental mediumship and direct-voice
mediumship. I reiterate: these materialist scientists, and
negative psychologists have not done their homework, do
not understand what is the real paranormal, do not discriminate
between the quacks and the psi geniuses, did not rebut the
existing objective evidence for the afterlife – they
just regurgitate their own pre-conceived negatively entrenched
bias. They have no authority at all. You can access my full
rebuttals of these giants of science on my website.
37. What’s your final message?
I put it very simply: in the overall scheme of things time
on earth is very short. Inevitably we – rich or poor,
black and white - all have to cross over. Understand what
you must do to obtain higher vibrations – higher spirituality.
The more you get to know about the afterlife the easier
the transition will be from physical planet earth to the
afterlife dimension: that’s guaranteed!
Answers to readers questions
My mother passed on a recently. Does the
spirit of a person hang around their family for awhile?
We loved her very much and miss her. Do we need to let her
go and get on with her new life?
First of all you must understand that when she passed on
she would have been met by her own loved ones who had passed
on before her. This is to assist her in the transition to
the afterlife. If she were unconscious for a long time,
she still would have been met but then she would be taken
to a very special place where she would be taken care of
and that she would get a ‘rest period’ to detach
herself from the illness she had on earth to adjust to the
new wonderful environment. If she had the afterlife information,
she could have had a ‘conscious transition’
which meant she would have seen all those who were around
her when she died. If there were ‘heart to heart’
connection – as you indicated there was, then when
her mental faculties are back to normal, yes, with absolute
certainty she would be back to visit her loved ones on earth
– that is the law: physical death does NOT sever the
love connection. She will have her own life – but
where there is a strong positive connection, she will be
back frequently to visit her loved ones on earth. Love is
the most powerful force in the universe. Life is but for
a just short time, but love is forever!
Do NOT grieve – that would make it very hard on her
in the spirit world. Grief is not positive energy –
yes do let her go BUT continue to express your love for
her – she will receive the love because she is still
alive and because our minds are just like live radio stations
– we’re sending vibrations everytime we concentrate
on our loved ones and when we send them our love. We feel
the love from our loved ones when they send their love to
us. Without exception, all humans will make the transition
to the spirit world and without exception physical death
cannot sever the heart to heart love link. That is guaranteed!
