After-Death Communication

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

After-Death Communication

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - April 15, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Bill Guggenheim, Karen Felzer

World authority on after-death communications (ADCs), Bill Guggenheim joined the program to discuss his thirty-year journey into researching and documenting over three thousand first-hand accounts of communication with the dead. He said that these experiences constitute "modern day evidence for life after death" and that the goal of his research is for ADCs to be regarded as "a natural and normal part of life."

Guggenheim defined after-death communications as "a spiritual experience that occurs when someone is contacted directly and spontaneously by a loved one that has died." He noted that the criteria for an ADC is narrow, so as to rule out ghosts and third party participants like mediums. Asked how many people have had these experiences, he said that a conservative estimate is 60 million Americans and that he's spoken to witnesses with ages ranging from eight to ninety-two.

According to the accounts that he has received, after-death communication can take many forms. Some of these included sensing a nearby presence of a person soon after they have died, hearing the voice of a departed loved one, or seeing the deceased either in a partial form or completely solid. Guggenheim speculated that the motive behind the ADCs is that those who have passed away "don't want us to grieve, because they know we don't have to. They continue to exist."

Earthquake Forecast

First half-hour guest, geophysicist Karen Felzer reacted to the forecast that California has a 99.7 percent chance of a major earthquake in the next 30 years. Felzer stressed the importance of preparation for these events and was optimistic that massive loss of life would be unlikely, since the buildings are better prepared for such disasters.
