"It is now time to give people a scientific balance on mainstream media and educational outlets: Newton or Einstein?"
Open Letter from Michael Roll to Professor John Poynton (November 28, 2005): A Fair Balance in SPR Publications
"Surely in a situation as divided as this, rules should be made that all editors must be duty bound to always balance these two conflicting opinions, especially as I have proved to you that scientists within The Royal Society are relying on their colleagues within the SPR to keep a sharp look out for any important discoveries in what Sir Oliver Lodge called "Psychic Science"?"Read More...
E-mail from Michael Roll to Professor John Poynton (July 16, 2013): The Cosmological Location of the Spiritual Part of the Universe
"How right you were when you made that statement that the greatest breakthrough will come via physics and not psychology."
"What is depressing about the critics is their willingness to construct an upturned pyramid of hypotheses and speculations, all balanced on one improbable assumption after another. What is so remarkable is their unwillingness to accept the oft repeated challenge to take the scientifically warranted course of viewing all the evidence together, rather than attempting to pick theoretical holes in every individual item."
It is notable that this letter was published in Psychic News and not in New Scientist, where it would have provided a balance to the outburst from Dr. Susan Blackmore published there on November 4, 2000. Dr Blackmore referred to the Scole Report as "infamous".
It is also notable that experiments carried out by Professor Gary Schwartz are never censored because he has not linked the subject of survival after death with natural forces in the universe, and with the scientific discipline of subatomic physics that looks at the invisible part of the universe.
E-mail from Michael Roll to Stephen Cox, of the Royal Society (May 3, 2005): The Discovery of People in the Invisible Part of the Universe
"Everything now rests with The Royal Society abandoning their 17th century pact with the Vatican never to make a study of forces in the universe that are beyond our five physical senses - so-called spiritual matters. All the religious killing will stop when people find out they are only fighting over supernatural mythology invented by priests who knew nothing about cosmology."Read More...

”You are one of the few people left alive who witnessed Helen Duncan's mediumship that gave such hope and comfort to people who had lost loved ones, especially as she was operating not long after the terrible slaughter of the First World War. Please be kind enough to put in writing to me what you said on the phone yesterday - that the red light that was used at a Helen Duncan experiment was bright enough to see all the people in the room including the expressions on their faces, that two "dead" people you knew very well fully materialised, a close family friend and a girl you were at school with.”Read More...
