Through the presence of Emily in their house, and her penetrating questions about heaven, the Addisons learn that there is no sorrow so great that faith cannot help you find your way through.

    I have been reading ' Consciousness explained' by Daniel Dennet. I then tweeted him on twitter and said he admits his ideas are only a theory, so why did he not call the book Consciousness explored, not explained.
    Then I could have ignored it.
    In his theories he discounts dualism very briefly mentioning and dismissing it. He also gives no credibility to poltergeists being able to move things around, and assumes no such things have ever happened.
    So if there is any evidence whatever of real poltergeist activity, Dennets theories would be shown to be false.

    His slogan is, ' mind is brain' and mine is, consciousness is the spirit incarnate in the flesh.

    All Through the Night
    Book by Mary Higgins Clark
    [​IMG]
    "A desperate mother. Her missing child. A stolen chalice." With "Silent Night," Mary Higgins Clark, America's own Queen of Suspense, gave her readers their best Christmas present ever. Now, with "All Through the Night," she once again celebrates the Christmas season with a tale of suspense that will keep readers turning the pages -- all through the night. At the center of the novel are two of Mary Higgins Clark's most beloved characters, Alvirah, the lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, and her husband, Willy, both of them caught up in a Christmas mystery that calls on all of Alvirah's deductive powers, as well as Willy's world-class common sense. The story begins when a young unmarried woman leaves her newborn child on the rectory doorstep at a church on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. At the same moment, inside the church, a young man is stealing a treasured artifact, a chalice adorned with a single star-shaped diamond. Both the infant and the chalice disappear. Seven years later, a few weeks before Christmas, Alvirah and Willy are busy helping Willy's sister Cordelia, a nun who runs a thrift shop that doubles as an after-school shelter for neighborhood kids, prepare for the upcoming Christmas pageant. The future of the shelter is threatened, however, when the city condemns the building for that use, and it is further jeopardized when a nearby brownstone to which the shelter was to be moved turns out to have been willed to a young couple who were tenants in the building. Alvirah refuses to believe that the will is genuine and sets out to prove that the couple are con artists. Soon she is involved in the mystery of the chalice and the child. In "AllThrough the Night," Mary Higgins Clark has fashioned a Christmas gift for all her readers.
