The strange worlds of the paranormal with the author of 2001 and MANNIX
4 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

i was kidding on MANNIX, in a previous life he did that. On reincarnation I believe 75% to 99.99% of the people that believe in that are harmless. The native americans have beliefs on this, some, many these days have opted for a different take. Many, not all. This is fine. This show was still on A&E up until last year or the year before. It featured in depth stories on people walking on burning coals, wheat swirls etc. i met this guy once from a distance twice. Would have loved to had talked to him. He had differing views on many topics and would stir the pot on certain aspects of certain books he wrote and levae readers guessing as to his intent. Which is fine. it creates a mystique. Mystique sells copy. It also makes money, yet I also believe guys like him do theis for a reason...not so much peddlers in ideas but peddlers in free will. Free choice.the concept that defines our republic and says I have a right to chose my own belief. I respect this. There is nothing wrong with conjecture or the likes of DARWIN and others who challenge traditional thought or men like EDGAR CAYCE, although I would never go down his public road when ficition suits this purpose so much better, or poetry or conjecture. To each their own. It is because of these men our culture and our bookshelves and the world of explanations and ideas is so rich. If we all agreed on one topic and train of thought and became of ONE ,mind, what a boring place this planet and nation would be.
