James H. Hyslop's Quotation on Existence of Spirits

James H. Hyslop (1854-1920), Columbia University Professor of Logic and Ethics, author, and paranormal researcher, played a major role in psychic research during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In his 1918 book, Life After Death, Hyslop states, "I regard the existence of discarnate spirits as scientifically proved and I no longer refer to the skeptic as having any right to speak on the subject. Any man who does not accept the existence of discarnate spirits and the proof of it is either ignorant or a moral coward. I give him short shrift, and do not propose any longer to argue with him on the supposition that he knows anything about the subject.''
