The book is a case of unexplained phenomena, including chemical evidence, that is an ultimate challenge to scientifically-minded skeptics. Forrest J Ackerman (1916-2008) was a world famous futurist, author and a pioneering promoter of science fiction books and films.

As an atheist, Mr. Ackerman did not believe in life after death. However, he promised friends that if he were wrong, he would try to drop them a line. The is the unabridged true story of precisely what happened. For over six years, data has accumulated that Mr. Ackerman continues to communicate, with over 100 incidents that include physical chemical evidence studied at two universities. This has left top science professors in fields from chemistry to psychology completely baffled, and in some cases, plagued by unexplainable incidents themselves.

The book includes Paul Davids’ sworn personal testimony and incredible story of bizarre contacts from the mentor whose deep friendship he valued for half a century It also includes in-depth chemical analysis (a 3 year study) of an extraordinarily mysterious ink and ink message that continues to mystify scientists, and also studies from state of the art sensors used with computer software, apparently successfully, to attempt getting responses from spirits, including the late Mr. Ackerman.

This is a companion work to Mr. Davids’ feature documentary from NBC Universal called “THE LIFE AFTER DEATH PROJECT,” but a previous viewing of the film is not essential, and the book certainly stands alone.

PAUL DAVIDS is an author, artist and director, who has produced films that include Marilyn Monroe Declassified (2016), NBCUniversal s Jesus in India (2007) and The Sci-Fi Boys (2006), and Showtime s Roswell (1994).

He co-authored six books of the Star Wars saga with his wife, Hollace Davids, for Lucasfilm.

He is a Princeton Psychology graduate. His uncanny experiences of phenomena related to Mr. Ackerman are the subject of the film, The Life After Death Project (2013).

An Atheist in Heaven is about this extraordinary case of afterlife communication, and Mr. Davids has signed a sworn affidavit certifying that it is all true.

Paul Davids | A Case Study Of After Death Contact w/ Forrest J. Ackerman

Published on May 31, 2016

Life after death: No one really knows what happens. Do we go off “toward the light”? Do we simply cease to exist? The most common atheistic view is that we are gone and no longer exist at all. Today’s guest, however, has some insights gleaned from his encounters with his late friend, Forrest J. Ackerman, after Forrest’s death. Though Forrest was a staunch atheist, he made the promise to try to communicate from beyond if it was possible, and Paul Davids asserts that not only has it been possible, but Forrest has been communicating with him and others quite a bit since his death.

Paul is a filmmaker, author, producer, and communicator with those who have passed on. He was the production coordinator of the original Transformers television show, and has since written six Star Wars sequels with his wife, Hollace, and is a prolific artist. His works have been sold all over the world. Today he is speaking to us about his book, An Atheist in Heaven, and his experiences communicating with Forrest J. Ackerman.

Some of the topics that you’ll hear about include:

19:30: The case that changed the way Paul thought about communicating with the dead. Dorothy Allison, a psychic medium, was able to tell a pair of distraught parents where they could find their daughter’s body after the teenager had been murdered.

24:00: Paul’s first direct experience with the dead, which was when he was first contacted by his late friend, Forrest J. Ackerman.

33:15: The story of the “Inkblot Obliteration,” the first and most compelling piece of evidence that Forrest was reaching out from the other side. Paul tells of the circumstances, what happened, and how he knew without a doubt that it was indeed Forrest attempting to reach him.

43:00: How Forrest’s friend, Joe Moe, who was also an atheist and a skeptic, had an experience that led him to believe that Forrest had returned from the dead to thank him. This occurrence also put the inkblot obliteration incident in perspective.

45:30: What happened when Jay Siegel, one of the most important chemists in the USA and the chair chemist at Indiana University, ran tests on the inkblots and tried to categorize the ink: It turned out that the ink used wasn’t anything used in modern times, but it did have properties of inks used a century ago.

48:15: Some of the rules of engagement and limitations of contacting and communicating with those who have passed on.

54:00: How Forrest reached out yet again by creating a typographical error in an already-edited article, The Strange Case of Forrest J. Ackerman, that referenced the inkblot obliteration incident.
