Description: xii, 482 pages ; 21 cm
Contents: Death research: A critical examination of clinical death research recently reported, noting its spiritistic aspects, reinterpretation of death, and necromantic implications ; Conclusion: A tremendous upsurge in occult interest ; Historical perspective and social consequences --
Part II Power from the stars? --
Untapped and nonphysical energy sources? : The false claims of astrology ; An ancient art in a modern world ; In these chapters, the ancient origin, impact, and problems of astrology are discussed ; Did astronauts visit earth in ancient times? ; What about Ufo's today? ; Extraterrestrial life and UFO's: An analysis of extraterrestrial life theories in two of their most popular forms. The validity of von Daniken's ancient astronaut hypothesis is challenged through a summarization of his factual errors and analysis of his literary style. Carrying the argument to the present, the modern fascination with anomalous aerial phenomena (UFO's) is briefly examined ; Energy forces and holistic health ; Discussion of the nature of this energy for human discernment and the occult aspect of the holistic health movement ; The new medicine. A look at fifteen of the "new" alternate medical practices and their spiritual and philosophic roots. Five guidelines for involvement in any new treatment modality. Topics covered include iridology, chromotherapy, witchcraft, sound therapy, applied kinesiology, acupuncture and acupressure, sonopuncture, radionics, astrologic medicine, chiropractic, orgonomy and bioenergetic therapies, biofeedback, alphagenics, and meditation, hypnotic regression, body therapies (zone therapy, functional integration, rolfing, don'in, shiatsu, etc), and homeopathy ; The "new" energy forces are very old ; An analysis of this "new" mystical energy indicating its ties to similar occult concepts throughout history. Five particular energy concepts are examined --
prana, mana, animal magnetism, Od, and higher sense perception ; A Satanic counterfeit to conversion? ; Tying together practice and theory; common characteristics of this energy ; Energy forces and the nature of man ; A brief and tentative criticism over the question of potentially latent psychic or "soul" powers and the problems raised for Christian theology and other areas ; Scriptural analysis and summary ; Brainwashed by choice for a fee! ; The dangers and delusions of "est" ; These chapters examine the Erhard seminars training (est), its impact, beliefs, and potential hazards. Est is representative of many new human-potential seminars and movements which attempt to make eastern-occult philosophy palatable to western minds. Conclusion: The consequences and evil design of nonbiblical supernaturalism ; The impact of occultism and semantics --
Part III Power from the mind? --
or a controlled mind? : Parapsychology: The scientific study of Psi ; The scientific claims and realities ; The occult history of parapsychology ; The spiritistic history of parapsychology as an indicator of its nature ; The true status of parapsychology ; Further examination of the nonscientific, occult nature of parapsychology; bias against the spiritistic theory of psi events ; Mediumism and the occult in standard parapsychological works ; Examination of some typical literary resources of parapsychology; important figures; science as magic; the "life force" ; Researchers and the Psychic laboratories: What you see is not what you get! ; The attempt of psi researchers to foster a credible scientific image means spiritistic involvement may be undetectable apart from extensive research; new trends; occult ties of scientific psi laboratories; a shocking story ; Is there such a thing as "Christian" parapsychology? ; A critical look at the growing idea of Christian parapsychology ; The theology of "Christian" parapsychology ; An examination of how a parapsychological worldview reinterprets the Bible ; The impact of "Christian" parapsychology ; Additional consequences of Christian parapsychology; two "Christian" psychic societies --
the SFF and CFPSS --
and their biblical interpretation ; Discernment is lacking about "Christian" parapsychology ; A critical review of several "Christian" endeavors supporting parapsychology and mediumism; apparitions research and mediumism ; Parapsychology, "Psychic development," and poltergeists ; The hazards of psychic development; a look at the phenomena of poltergeists and their methods ; C.
