Messages of Hope from a 2,800 Year Old Man

On this weekend of hope, I thought I would offer everyone some of the messages of inspiration and hope that I received from the remarkable man whom I have been interviewing for many years.

You see, I have also found hope that anything was possible since I first heard the story of the incredible man who defied death 2,000 years ago.  But like most of you, I still needed to see, hear, or better yet experience such death defying feats during our modern age to really take “to heart” what we were taught by those famous biblical prophets. 

So when it occurred to me that there actually were people living past 125 years of age, and way beyond that number, I started to “feel my heart” stir to the possibility many of our ancient myths may have been much more than stories of hope.  Could they conceivably be accounts of actual people who found “the answers to achieving the impossible”?  Did these people achieve such incredible feats, because the has nothing to fear?  Or because they simply decided not to allow their lives to be conquered by their fears? Or, perhaps, they discovered the secret of living a life without fears which allowed these people to accomplish all that their heart’s desired?

Clearly, fear in our lives, disables us, blocks us from growing, stops us for moving forward, hampers us in attaining our life’s dreams; and in some cases, perhaps in many ways, destroys our lives from the inside out.

So, if fear is what keeps us from what we want, what we need, what we desire; then is it possible that the “lack of fear” or the “absence of fear” will allow us to obtain what we work for, what we struggle for, and what we sacrifice for?

From what what I have learned from my 2,800 year friend, and from the man who made history 2,000 years ago, is a big, blatant YES to these questions.  Certainly they both had fears, but it is quite obvious from what I have heard from the both of them is simply: conquer your fears and you will achieve results.

So how did these 2 incredible men face their fears and conquer them?  The simplest of answers I could ascertain from the both of them, happens to be the same message:

1. Do not believe in the fear.  Believe instead in the “opposite of fear” which is love.

2. Do not believe in death.  Believe instead in the “opposite of death” which is life.

3. Do not live your lives believing in fear and in death, but instead live your lives believing in love and in life.

Have you ever met a person who believes in love and in life?  When you do, you automatically be moved by the presence, their words, and all that surrounds them.

Is that not how we, deep down inside, really want to live?  A life of contentment without worries, fears, and experiencing life at its fullest?

We can seek out these people for guidance, we can model our lives after these people …

or we can start today and simply add this simple knowledge into our lives, in everything we say, everything we do, and when we deal with all that life deals to us. 

This is what I have learned from a 2,800 year man, who lives this way every day.  And I am embarrassed to say, this is what I should have learned from the man who taught us all this; 2,000 years ago today.

On the Sovereign Mind Radio Show yesterday, May 25th, Ben Abba described to Sonia Barrett and her crew, how the 2,800 year old man, which Ben Abba has been researching and blogging about, used Oregano before toothpaste was invented to clean and protect his teeth.  Ben further described how people prepared the Oregano for use as a mouth gargle and as a “paste” for teeth cleaning. 

Apparently the Oregano was very effective in removing bacteria and fungus from the mouth and for protecting the teeth from decay.

Ironically, the use of Oregano for teeth cleaning is not an unusal idea as described in this recent article by the Okaloosa County School District.

However, Oregano did have one side effect to Ben’s 2,800 year old friend; it supposedly caused this super-centenarian’s teeth to turn black.

Ben Abba  discussed many other enlightening topics on yesterday’s the Sovereign Mind Radio Show; the podcast is available here.

Ben Abba is the co-author with Dr. Wayne Dyer, of the best-selling book “Wake Up Moments of Inspiration” ; and the author of the forthcoming book “Secrets of an Immortal – An Eyewitness Account of 2,800 Years

Does the Movie “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” Offer a Secret to Immortality?

Does “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” offer a hidden secret to obtaining human immortality? It may appear to be a stretch; but yes I believe it does.

I went and saw this new documentary by Ben Stein at the theatres this week. Even though a vast majority of the film critics hated this movie, just like they did the original Star Wars movie when it first came out, I decided to give it a try anyway. Ironically it was one of the best documentaries I ever watched. So I am guessing that the only reason these movie critics didn’t care for “Expelled” is because it was too politically incorrect for them to approve of it.

In case you are not aware of what this movie is about, it basically about how modern day scientists and professors are being shunned from their employers and peers, simply by discussion the topic of “intelligent design”. In other words, this documentary discusses the many possible reasons why free speech is no longer acceptable in the scientific community.

I really did not come here to start my own debate on the topic of human evolution. For I too have been shunned by fellow scientists and my peers in the scientific community on a variety of topics; including the debate on human evolution. I am going to say that this movie did bring home to me another secret of human immortality that I am now willing to share with the rest of you.

Point # 1 – A common belief in a Creator. All of the people I have met or researched that are 100 years of age and older, all have a common belief in the existence of a creator. That is they all believe our universe was the work of an intelligent designer. While their beliefs are not considered scientific evidence, the fact that centenarians, supercentenarians, and immortals all have this one common trait does make a compelling case for the existence of a Creator and that humans are the result of an intelligent design. If there were more evolutionists and Darwinists who lived past 100 years or more, I would have to feel the other way about this fact. However, there are no Darwinists or evolutionists that I have found who have survived as long as these centenarians.

Point # 2 – If “Intelligent design” does exist what is our expiration date? So if we are the result of an intelligent design, what did our Creator design our lifespan to be? I did not see anything in the movie “Expelled” from any of the scientist to tell me what our age limited was to be. There was a discussion about how our cells might have evolved from lower forms of life, or not, but the question of whether any of these cells had a know lifespan was left quite unanswered. In fact, as I search for the answers of what is the “expiration date” of a single cell, the answer various. It various on the type of cell, it various on the type of organism the cell is a part of, and it various on the conditions the cell is subjected to. In other words, none of our cells were ever given an exact expiration date; and under the right conditions many cells can live on indefinitely. Could this possibly be a case for “intelligent design”?

Point # 3 – In order to become a real immortal, a belief in intelligent design is a requirement. One item that the movie “Expelled” pointed out in many ways was the frailty of human life and how we often find ourselves killing each other for many different reasons. Many times the ego of one person can cost the lives of many others, sometimes in the millions. Here to is proof on the need for a Creator to survive on this planet. Without some kind of spiritual intervention, the odds are we could easily find ourselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. I have clearly made note of, from my research into the lives of people who have lived past 150 years and more, that they all never found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. When a war broke out or an egomaniac went on the rampage, they all found themselves a safe distance away from the danger. It was clear to me, hearing their stories of survival, that they all experienced some kind of spiritual intervention at least once in their lives. Many of these supercentenarians attribute their beliefs in God as their real secret to survival. How can any argue their believing in an “intelligent designer” when they already have outlived us all?

Summary of the Facts – My Story About Finding a Real Immortal

First of all, I am not associated in any way with any movie or publicity company. Yes I have seen the Highlander movies and the Highlander TV series along with the Indiana Jones movies; and now I have just seen the movie Jerome Bixby’s “The Man From Earth”. Here is my summary of facts about discovering immortality and a real life immortal living among us.

I first found out about immortality in the early 1970’s in a Bible study class. Yes, there are many references to spiritual immortality in the Bible; however there are also references to physical immortality along with people living hundreds of years. Still, whenever I brought up the subject in my Bible study class and attempted to discuss this with the family priest and minister (we had both); I was strongly discouraged to discuss physical immortality.

Fast forward to the 1997 when I learned about technical remote viewing. One of the first targets I just had to remote view was my own death. I have this firm belief that we all have the right to change our future, and I wanted to know what was in store for me. I “viewed” my own death in May of 2012 and I did not like what I saw. So I began a campaign to change my future life. Around that time I was given the infamous tape “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” which convinced me to look for someone with real experience in living a long, healthier life. Soon I was off looking for the oldest person alive. What I eventually found was quite startling.

I believe that I found about 25 men over the age of 250 years old that are still alive today. None of these “immortals”, however, were woman, even though I fully expected to find more women outliving men. I am guessing, in a humorous way, that this is because these 25 men are just too stubborn to die. Most of these 25 men live in the central to eastern Asia area with Tibet, Nepal, and India areas having the most of them. The oldest woman I could find was about 150 years old living in India. None of these ancients lived in the Western Hemisphere; however I did find some information that there is a 150 year old Native American who is still alive today.

I further targeted the oldest of these special people and I did find 2 men, of approximately the same age living near the Mediterranean Sea. So I used my advanced researching skills to locate and finally make contact with them. One of them would not speak with me, the other reluctantly did. I have since found out that both of these men were former Old Testament prophets.

My quest to locate and meet this living immortal was to find out how he lived, and if possible, figure out how he could survive generations longer than the average human. My intentions were to find out this information for my own personal use and not release it to the public. However, as this man began to open up about his past, I soon realized it would be a crime against humanity to not tell his story to the world.

As I thought more about telling this man’s story, I realized that I could never prove this man’s real age since no certifiable documentation existed. Nor could I prove anything scientifically about this man’s real age, except for maybe a DNA test. I was not going to be rude in obtaining a DNA sample, but if the opportunity ever presented itself, I would take whatever body fluids that I could collect and pass them on to a qualified lab to test it. However since no one has ever performed any DNA testing on a living person over 120 years that I am aware of, I question if such a test would truly prove anything. Still I am very curious to see what such a test would show so I will endeavor to collect a sample whenever I get the chance. And I will post these results on my blog.

My next dilemma was how to release this information. Even though I have written many technical papers for my business, I have never written any kind of book or novel before. So to me writing any kind of book would be a waste of time. No one would be believe the story I had to tell, especially if I had no way to prove any of the assertions I would be making. Besides to me writing a book is like getting a root canal; so I put the book idea aside. So I took to telling this story, a bit at a time on various writing blogs and forums. As I reviewed my notes for my next blog, I started noticing that there was a lot of circumstantial evidence within this man’s story. Not enough to absolutely prove anything, but enough to make this story more plausible. At the same time I started getting more and more requests to tell the whole story as quickly as possible.

Eventually I got the message to start writing this man’s story, one book at a time. So I have hired a book coach, taken several writing classes, and hired a webmaster. When I started putting together my notes to write a book, I soon realized I had to break up what I had into 4 books. The first book will briefly describe how I found this immortal and then I will describe some of his more priceless memories. The second book will focus on this man’s Old Testament experiences. The third book will be about this man’s New Testament experiences. And the fourth book will be about his secrets of how he became an immortal. For very reasons, this man has not given me permission to talk about his Old Testament or New Testament experiences. Since I know who this man really is and there is not enough money on this planet to make me disrespect him or betray his trust; please do not ask me any questions about these 2 topics. However, I am a very persistent man and I personally feel this information needs to be brought out. So I will continue to persevere to obtain his permission to reveal his Old Testament name(s) and tell his incredible New Testament experience. And as soon as I do get his permission I will publish book 2 and 3. As for book number 4: I still need some more research to complete this book.

Right now I am settling on for the title of the first book: as “Secrets of an Immortal – The Eyewitness Account of 2,800 Years of History”. It will be a nonfiction book about the selective memories this man has about traveling aboard a Phoenician ship to meet Emperor Qin Shi Huang of Ancient China; being an ancient Mediterranean merchant, serving in the Greek Army in B.C. Eturaci or Euturcia, Italy; serving as a Knights Templar banker at a garrison in Avila near Toledo, Spain; creating ancient golf courses near Edinburgh, Scotland; building a very unique clock tower with a young Leonardo da Vinci; and a brief romance with Maria Sklodowska aka Madame Curie. This first book will also describe his brief business dealings this man had with several ancient kings of Judah and Israel, Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Pope Paul I, Genghis Khan, Peter the Great, and Napoleon Bonaparte. I will also discuss several of his observations of history, people, events, and some ancient juicy rumors. I will end this book about what he remembers about growing up near Damascus, Jordon nearly 2,800 years ago.

The second book will discuss his memories of a few other Biblical prophets he crossed paths with. However the bulk of the book will detail what really happened in the 2 books of the Old Testament, Torah, and Koran that he is the main character of. Again, please do not ask me his Biblical names as I do not have permission to do so, yet.

The third book will focus on this amazing man’s 6 year friendship with the man commonly known as Jesus Christ. This book, will detail a few of the events described in our New Testament along with a lot of detail about events not described in the New Testament. This includes his frequent visits to Christ’s home. Relax my Christian brothers and sisters, there will not be anything in this book that disproves the New Testament; however there will be some information that disproves some of the “myths” of Christ’s life that are not found in the New Testament. Again please do not ask me for any details about this book yet until I have full permission to do so. This immortal saw the controversies surrounding the movies “The Passion of Christ” and “The Da Vinci Code”. And even though he has not seen either movie, he has no taste for creating another controversy. Yet, I feel passionate about beginning this part of this man’s life out to the world, so I will be as persuasive as I can to get his permission to do so.

The fourth book is what this whole story is all about. What did a man do and continues to do, to survive generations of time. This information is priceless yet I will be offering it all for the price of a book. I have found a lot of information that confirms what I have learned from this immortal and I am continuing to research his secrets of longevity even more. I just have too much on plate to get this book out first; so I am leaving it for last. In my blogs I have already dropped a few hints from my findings; however there is a lot more to tell.

I have decided that I will now focus on getting this first book out, so I will be limiting my blog posts for awhile. I have set up a newsletter signup for people who would like to review various portions of these books which I could use some more feedback on. I will be revealing more tidbits in this newsletter, if that is of interest to any of you.

My webmaster insisted that I purchase a domain name for every possible book title I might use someday. Since I did not want to waste all of these domain names, I am having them point to my main blogs. Eventually I will be using these individual domains for different projects related to this man’s life and my experiences with him

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog and I hope and pray you will all enjoy the fruits of my labor. Blessings!

I Just Watched Jerome Bixby’s “The Man from Earth” Movie

Upon the insistence of several of the posters to my blogs and forums, especially this one, I went ahead and ordered the DVD of The Man From Earth. And as I was watching this movie, I was astonished at how many parallels this movie had with the story I had been telling on my blogs and forums. I was equally amazed at all of the reactions the “friends” were having as they were hearing the story from someone they knew and greatly respected.

In case you have not heard about this movie, let me give you a quick description. It is about a professor who, at his going away party, reveals that he is really a 14,000 year old immortal. Then to the total disbelief of his friends, he describes events he witnessed throughout his 14,000 year life.

I have been telling a story about meeting an immortal who is nearly 2,800 years old. Just as there are many similarities between my story and this fictional movie, there are equally as many differences between the two.

I am not going into the differences here; however after reading the many comments to my blogs; especially this one, i am going to post a better “Summary of the Facts” concerning my 2,800 year old friend. Stay Tuned for this post.

Is Truth Where Facts Meet Faith?

In my discussions about discovering a 2,800 year old man, some of the comments remind me of some of my earlier experiences in my life. I remember growing up in a very black and white world of science; where truth and facts are one. And only those facts that I can hold in my hand, see with my own eyes, hear with my own ears, or reproduce in a laboratory experiment are truth; and everything else is theory or faith. That was until I walked barefoot on hot coals.

I have, one too many times, walked on hot coals that accidently escaped from a grill or bonfire; each time painfully burning my feet. Then one day I had the opportunity to attend a Tony Robbins seminar and to my amazement, I walked barefoot on a 12 foot bed of very hot coals; without a scratch much less a burn. As I sat pondering later as to what I had just done, I realized the physics, the science, and the math in both events had not changed at all. But my faith and my beliefs at both events were totally different. I have since consistently observed others at parties burning their feet on a few smoldering coals while others have no pain or burns while strolling successfully across beds filled with blazing hot coals.

The same is true when I attempted to bend spoons in my own home. Again, I screamed at the spoons and performed all of the tasks that I knew for bending a spoon; without success. And yet, when I attended a spoon bending party, I bent numerous spoons with ease. Again I ponder, the physics, the science, and math are all the same in both events; yet the beliefs, the thoughts, and the faith are quite different between both experiences.

So I have begun to wonder, can our thoughts control the results of our scientific experiments? And if so, can our faith be as much of a factor in truth as the facts are?
After I heard about the quantum mechanics theories relating to how the observer of an experiment influences the results of the experiment; I saw the movie “What the Beep Do We Know”. This sleeper film attempted to introduce to the layperson the impact of our thoughts on own reality. This “truth” was emphasized even more in the better known film: “The Secret”.

So my point is: it is becoming very clear to me that our beliefs and our faith dictate what facts we can see and hear; as well as what facts we can call as truth.

And this is why, I believe, these real immortals have lived among us, for so long, without notice. Perhaps we have to be open to the possibility, in our faith and in our beliefs, for a person to actually see and meet a real immortal. Perhaps even more, we need this faith and beliefs, to become a immortal ourselves.

Dealing with Pseudoskeptics, Disinformants, and Fraudulent Debunkers

After posting my story about finding a 2,800 year old man, I have become barraged by several people who claim to be skeptics. I believe skeptism is good for any topic, for I too am a skeptic. However the attacking of a discussion without merit under the cloak of a skeptic is not real skeptism but rather pseudoskepticism.

Wikipedia defines the term pseudoskepticism (or pseudo-skepticism) as “denotes thinking that appears to be skeptical but is not. The term is most commonly encountered in the form popularized by Marcello Truzzi, through his Journal of Scientific Exploration, where he defined pseudoskeptics as those who take “the negative rather than an agnostic position but still call themselves ‘skeptics'”These pseudoskeptics reveal themselves by not focusing on discussing the facts but by derailing or disheartening the researcher or claimant; often with quick judgments and name-calling without evidence to back up their counterclaims.

From Wikipedia about pseudoskepticism:

“In science, the burden of proof falls upon the claimant; and the more extraordinary a claim, the heavier is the burden of proof demanded. The true skeptic takes an agnostic position, one that says the claim is not proved rather than disproved. He asserts that the claimant has not borne the burden of proof and that science must continue to build its cognitive map of reality without incorporating the extraordinary claim as a new “fact.” Since the true skeptic does not assert a claim, he has no burden to prove anything. He just goes on using the established theories of “conventional science” as usual. But if a critic asserts that there is evidence for disproof, that he has a negative hypothesis –saying, for instance, that a seeming psi result was actually due to an artifact–he is making a claim and therefore also has to bear a burden of proof.”
The tendency is to deny, rather than doubt:. Double standards in the application of criticism. The making of judgments without full inquiry

. Tendency to discredit, rather than investigate

. Use of ridicule or ad hominem attacks in lieu of arguments

. Pejorative labeling of proponents as ‘promoters’, ‘pseudoscientists’ or practitioners of ‘pathological science.

. Presenting insufficient evidence or proof

. Assuming criticism requires no burden of proof

. Making unsubstantiated counter-claims

. Counter-claims based on plausibility rather than empirical evidence

. Suggesting that unconvincing evidence is grounds for dismissing it

Keep in mind, the true skeptic is a welcome asset to real research. The pseudoskeptic contributes nothing to research, but instead attempts to stifle the research in progress. Before examining or discussing the topic, the pseudoskeptic decries absurdity with shouts of “where’s the proof” and “show me the evidence”; even if there has been evidence already presented. For these disinformants, there is never enough proof or absolute proof; even though they can never offer any proof to back their counterclaims.

Where’s the Proof (Part 4)

I contend that in our day and age, it is impossible to absolutely, positively prove anything. I believe that Americans did land on the moon; yet there are many skeptics who have claimed there is no absolute, undeniable proof that the moon landing was not faked by our government. There is no absolute, positive proof that OJ murdered his wife or that UFOs exist; yet a majority of the people on this planet believe both are true. If you look around and find your local neighborhood atheist they will tell you either Jesus Christ did not survive his crucifixion or that there is no absolute, undeniable proof that he ever existed. Yet I bet many would argue strongly against either statement. By definition, most atheists believe there is no such thing as God; yet I contend many would argue that point vigorously.There is no absolute, undeniable proof that global warming is actually taking place; and there is no absolute, positive proof that it is not. Further, there is no absolute, undeniable proof that homo sapiens evolved from apes; and there is no absolute, positive proof that human evolution did not take place. Likewise, I believe it is impossible to to prove, without a shadow of doubt that someone is an immortal; and it is equally impossible to prove someone that real immortals do not exist.I also believe it is not my purpose in life to prove, undeniably, that immortals do live among us. This is why I was not going to even bother to tell anyone about the immortal that I found. However, as I continued to research this remarkable man and heard his stories, it became very clear to me that I had to tell the world that I found such a man and present his stories; even if I cannot offer scientific evidence that this man is older than 150 years.I found an interesting quote on the web: “Truth is what opposites have in common”. Hopefully believing man did walk on the moon is not the only truth we have in common.
