"History shows that every intelligent man who has gone into this investigation, if he gave it adequate examination at all, has come out believing in spirits; this circumstance places the burden of proof on the shoulders of the skeptic."|

Welcome to our Home Page
Our mission is to discern, develop and disseminate knowledge of how paranormal phenomena may relate to and enhance the development of the human spirit.
Library additions last month
The Academy's Garland Memorial Library added
one document in January.
A Tale of Two Tattoos. A
new Top-40 case in which the spirit of a murdered girl provides
detailed information that neither the medium nor the sitter
could possibly have known.
The Policeman and the Painter
Undergoing hypnotic regression on a dare, a very skeptical, long-time police officer is startled to find himself a painter in front of an easel studying a picture of a hunchback woman. Research revealed that the artist's career 100 years ago, matched the details from the regression sessions in at least 28 particulars.
♦ For more proof of an afterlife, see
aisles E1 through E6 in
room of the Garland Memorial Library.
J. Arthur Findlay
of the Glasgow Society for Psychical Research and of The
International Institute for Psychical Research, Findlay is
remembered today primarily as the founder of the Arthur Findlay
College for Spiritualists and as the author of 10 books dealing with
his research and experiences. ♦ For other biographies of important persons in the development of
evidence for an afterlife, see
aisle L2 and aisle L3 in the Legacy room of the Garland Memorial Library.
Dr. David Fontana
“I very much doubt if those who support [Super ESP] have spent 30 years investigating, at first hand, the evidence for survival, If they had, it is doubtful they would continue to support the notion that everything comes from telepathy or clairvoyance by the living.” ♦ For other interviews of important persons in the development of evidence for an afterlife, see
aisle L1 in the Legacy room of the Garland Memorial Library
The Wallace Revelations
The renowned naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace speaks of the evidence that changed him from skeptic to believer.
other articles and excerpts on topics related to Survival and
psychic matters, see
aisle E7 in the Evidence room of the Garland Memorial Library
Caps, Shirts, Bags, Mugs and other
items to help spread the word
Our volunteer members have designed a variety of items that will
promote interest in the Academy, demonstrate your committment,
and start conversations with those you meet. All profits from
sales go to support ASCS projects. Look good while doing good!
New to Spiritual Experiences?
|One reason, among many, that prompts people to visit this website is that they are seeking explanations or reassurance concerning a puzzling occurrence in their life. I have put together a list of some of the most common — a lot more common than you might think — events that can trigger a shift in the way that one’s consciousness relates to one’s spiritual essence. You may
view this list here, and are welcome to contact me if you desire elaboration or wish to discuss your own experience. In the meantime, I’d like to say that I and all the other volunteers who make up the Academy are glad you stopped by and hope you find this site informative and our work gratifying. |
