I tried to listen to Moody -- who kept reminding us he had several doctorates, btw, and taught philosophy courses -- be he sounds too much like an unfunny Paul Lynde. He has the creepy persona of a southern crook preacher. And I am very interested in NDEs. I fell asleep after the first hour of them doing nothing except talk about Moody's CV, woke up an hour and a half later only to find they were still not talking about NDEs, and went back to sleep. I was very disappointed with the whole program . . . moreso than usual.
I know what you mean, Gassy Man, I too was rather disappointed for the most part, but trust me, if you've ever heard Dr. Moody speak at seminars, which I had the good fortune to a couple of years ago, you'd be utterly amazed. He spent a solid three hours speaking of his and others research, his theories, etc., and never once alluded to his credentials. I didn't find him to be at all creepy in person - quite the opposite, in fact, and trust me, I'm a very discriminating, discerning woman of today.
I was surprised at the non-NDE talk, and yes, Moody came off in a negative light, sorry to say.Unfunny Paul Lynde?
LOL! Okay guys, I have
to insert this here. This is a classic episode of 'Bewitched', where Uncle Arthur (Paul Lynde)
and cousin Serena (Liz Montgomery)
have their powers taken away from them by the Witches Council, and resort to working a "mortal" job at a "Dairy Queen" type ice cream parlor. Oh yeah, Paul Lynde of all
people, working with big chocolate covered bananas and nuts...LOL! Here's an excerpt from the episode:
I've liked reading these two since their earliest works, so I tried to listen to Noory with Moody . . . I really tried.
Noory raises the spectre of Moody's own suicide attempt when he was in his early 40's, gets him to recreate the events leading up to it in excruciating detail, but does that satisfy Morbid Georgie? Nopey nope. Georgie wants more, wants to know where Raymond was, who found him, what the circumstances were of the finding, and on and on and on, to which Moody (obviously) replies, "I was unconscious at the time."
George Noory is the most assholelic (Jazzie's word) morbid creep who I'm convinced has serious psychological issues and needs professional help...no...the man needs a lobotomy...or perhaps he's already had
one and nobody informed him.
Now, Moody is on to talk about NDE's and life after death and all that good stuff.
Uh huh. I find the whole realm to be riveting, intriguing and so thought-provoking. I'm seriously considering training as a past life/life between life regression therapist...yes, I proudly proclaim my total belief in the soul not only surviving physical death of the body, but living countless lives on the earthplane.
The trouble is, there are so many bullshit charlatans out there, who through their fraudulent and deceptive manner totally denigrate this captivating field, and who individually and collectively give it a tin foil hat to wear.
Does Morbid Georgie even ONCE draw any nexus between Moody's suicide attempt and the afterlife?
Lovely Bones, come on now, you know
that's too difficult a mind-set for Georgie Boy to achieve and sustain. Any rational thought from George re the afterlife would be an afterthought, if at all.
