Many Birdmen-fabricated "peeple" of all races are quick to spot the dumbing down process that is religion, once it is explained to them as adults. They are not as fast, however, to see the links between spiritualism and man-made intoxication.
Let's be straight about it at least once.
Contrary to what the "Witch of Endore" is reported to have told King Saul, the first king of the Hebrews, one cannot communicate with the dead by word or thought, no matter the extensive qualifications of the so-called medium.
Yet, one can still trace what happens to the dead by following the trail of the chemistry left behind by the living after they die.
Since life is made up mostly of salt crystals suspended in water (see Christ) it is reasonable to surmise that these salt crystals eventually make their way to the oceans, thereby turning what was originally fresh water into salt water.
From there, the ocean, needing to keep a balance between salt and water or it too would die, uses the pressure created by its enormous weight to force the excess salt down to the bottom of the sea, where it becomes hardened as basalt rock.
This region, above the earth's mantle and below the crust, is known as the MOHO discontinuity.
Neanderthal troglodytes first took refuge there, by carving out caves and tunnels within the Moho itself, prior to the last ice age (which lasted approx. from 24,000 BC to 8,000 BC). They chose to remain there and from there secretly control the planet. Hi.storians falsely report their extinction. Low.storians such as I know penultimate reality.
The fact that all dead "peeple" are eventually turned into salt rock, as the Bible alludes to allegorically in the story of Lot's wife, does not however mean that communications are not possible with the dead, since as long as one can access the dead person's DNA before it turns into rock, by using the science of genetic engineering, one can still learn a lot about the dead and their life before they died. Speaking orally to the "once alive now dead" through prayer, seance or mental telepathy is not part of this equation.
Spiritual and/or religious communications with the dead, outside of the already written or otherwise recorded, therefore remains reasonable only within the sphere of the charlatan, the programmed, the insane, the intoxicated and the braindead.
BRAY DON'T PRAY WHEN UNEXPECTED EVENTS HIT YOU HARD - YELLING WILL AT LEAST MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER AND IT WILL ALSO TELL THE REST OF THE WORLD THAT YOU'RE STILL ALIVE, SANE (?), AND KICKING.
If you still feel a need to pray, use the time to BLAME ACTS OF GOD. After all, they, the Neanderthal, are probably responsible for the mess you're in.The SculPTor
