A New Website: In Defense of Animism

It was set up by James G. (Jim) Matlock, M.L.S., Ph.D., and you can visit it here. From the website:

“This site is dedicated to bringing together anthropology and parapsychology, especially on problems relating to the nature of the human being, interaction with a spirit world, and reincarnation. Both disciplines are concerned with these problems but their approaches are very different. Anthropologists document the beliefs and practices of peoples other than themselves without asking if there is any underlying truth to them, whereas parapsychologists are interested in evidence of human capacities transcending those furnished by the physical body and the question of whether some aspect of the human being might survive bodily death and subsequently reincarnate.”

I know from experience while researching my book that Matlock is a thorough and serious researcher. You can see this in the blog he set up on the site, which is dedicated to the subject of reincarnation. He begins with an extensive review of Jim Tucker’s new book, Return to Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children Who Remember Past Lives, a book that deserves the kind of attention Matlock has brought to it.

Great start Jim, and congratulations on the new site!
