Author of several influential books on public policy, Dinesh D'Souza discussed his efforts researching the evidence for life-after-death. He drew from theories and trends in such fields as physics, biology, neuroscience, religion, psychology, and philosophy. While many of the scientists whose work he studied might be non-believers in an afterlife, he argued that he's put together "the big picture" which demonstrates the likely possibility of the survival of consciousness beyond death.
Nothing in physics rules out the existence of the afterlife, in fact, recent theories about multiverses and parallel dimensions, suggest that other realms do exist, he said. In biology, we see how life forms have developed from simple to complex forms, from matter to mind. This evolutionary trend reflects a movement from perishable matter to imperishable mind, D'Souza continued.
Near Death Experiences (NDEs) indicate that the mind cannot be reduced to just brain function, and the similarity of experiencers' reports from around the world, suggest some empirical proof of an afterlife, he stated. D'Souza also portrayed Christ's resurrection as an historically accurate event, and further evidence for survival beyond death.
Red-Light Traffic Cameras
First hour guest, Prof. Ken Warren talked about how red-light traffic cameras violate the judicial process and are an invasion of privacy. It's a shakedown on citizens that creates tremendous revenues for cities and states (Arizona picked up over $90 million in citations in one year alone), he said. For those who are ticketed, the burden of proof is on them to prove their innocence, which reverses the typical legal process. He also noted that according to studies, the cameras actually increase the likelihood of accidents.
