Editorial Reviews

Mary Hirzel
You have come up with the only solution that has a chance of succeeding in getting these very legitimate and important questions out to the public: entertain them into awareness. Your work takes advantage of the popularity of courtroom dramas, and yet can boast the fact that everything revealed in your fictional testimony is based directly on published science. It is a pleasure to recommend your book to everyone concerned about the corruption of scientific research.
C. Mayer
"Are You Positive?" Most excellent!! Stephen Davis has done an EXCELLENT job of putting words and ideas in easy-to-understand layman's terms, exposing the Myth of HIV. I congratulate him, and recommend this book to everyone; NOT just those who received a false diagnosis!!!

Meet the Author

In his sixty-five years, Stephen Davis has been (in chronological order) one of the co-creators of "Up With People," a Physician’s Assistant in the U.S. Army (Vietnam vet), a commercial airline pilot, an Arizona State Senator, an Aide to L. Ron Hubbard in the Church of Scientology, President of an international management consulting firm (WISE), Director of Development and professor at Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, computer software designer, horse whisperer, and captain of a whale and dolphin research ship. He is the author of a number of books and won the George Washington Medal of Honor from Freedoms Foundation for his published article, "The Government Versus the Economy." In his own words… Like you, and many others, I’ve spent a lot of time in my life trying to find answers to some very simple questions: Who am I? Where did I come from? How did I get here? What am I doing here? Why is my life the way it is? My personal quest began at age nineteen when I went to work with Edgar Cayce’s son at the Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach. I took the opportunity to study as many of Cayce’s “readings” as I could from their original transcripts. From there I went deeper into parapsychological and psychic research, meeting and talking with such notables (at the time) as Dr. J.B. Rhine, who founded the first parapsychology lab at Duke University; Ruth Montgomery ("A Search for Truth"); and Lynn Schroeder and Sheila Ostrander ("Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain"). By the time I reached my twenty-fifth birthday, I owned a theosophical library of several thousand books. In the next decade I would become a personal “Aide” to L. Ron Hubbard in the Church of Scientology and achieve “OT6” status. By the time I turned forty-five, I had also dabbled in "A Course in Miracles," Urantia, Eckankar, channeling, Kundalini Yoga, meditation, Numerology, astrology, Tai Chi, Focusing, and Rosicrucianism. I read all the “Seth” books, along with Walsch's "Conversations with God" and Sitchin’s "Earth Chronicles." I attended numerous self-help seminars and workshops, tried "The Secret," listened to Abraham, watched "What the Bleep Do We Know," and learned everything I could from Peter Marshall, John Bradshaw, Sai Baba, Krishnamurti, Deepak Chopra, Eckart Tolle, and others. I even studied conventional religions — Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. — and at one time planned on becoming an Episcopal priest. In the end I still couldn’t find a satisfactory answer to even one of my simple questions — at least not an answer that worked well enough for me and everyone else to create a happy and fulfilling life on a continuous and daily basis. But I knew there had to be some grain of truth in most of these spiritual philosophies — sometimes well hidden and hard to get at, but some truth none the less. Yet no single philosophy or practice or technique worked for very long, or satisfied me, or produced the kind of life I longed for or believed was possible. Something was just a little “off” in every one of them that seemed like it wasn’t really true, and made both the “old-age” and “new-age” theories come up short. So I kept searching, putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle, using pieces from everything I had learned along this spiritual journey; and I began to scout a new path toward serenity of being. I now have those answers I so desperately needed and wanted, and the jigsaw puzzle is virtually finished. The result is my latest book, "Butterflies Are Free To Fly: A New and Radical Approach to Spiritual Evolution."

Excellent read with lots of facts and verifiable information.

This a book that will make you think! It scared the heck out of me. Although the story is fictional, it is so believable that I found myself laying the book down over and over to go do internet searches. I needed to know if the facts on which the story is built, are true. I'm satisfied that the author built the story on a solid framework of facts. One theme in the book had to do with the frequent, unchallenged false "positive" results of HIV tests -- and then those unfortunate HIV "positive" people being treated with a medicine that eventually killed them. That was scary! A number of years ago when I was single, I requested an HIV test, even though I have always been 100% heterosexual and have never used any recreational drugs. A lady I cared a lot about insisted on the test before we could get intimate. My test gave "proof" that I was HIV negative. We are now married for 15 years. This book makes the point that the HIV test has been unreliable from the beginning. My HIV test could easily have been one of those tens of thousands of false positives. I would have been unfairly branded for life. And, I would almost certainly be dead from the treatment with the drug AZT.

THIS BOOK IS GREAT, ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE READ IN A LONG TIME. THE INFORMATION WAS CROSSED REFERENCE WITH THE INTERNET WHICH MADE THE READING MORE REALISTIC. THIS BOOK READY GIVES THE READER SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

This book puts the validity of HIV tests under the bus. Using an easy to understand format, the author walks you through the utterly remarkable history of these tests and shows you the truth behind a million dollar industry that has intentionally blinded us all for years. Thank you for restoring my sight!

It casts a new light on HIV diagnosis & treatment

I have not tested positive for the HIV antibody nor do I know anyone who has. I found this book in the Nook library looking for a crime novel. I also will not bother testing for the HIV antibody again since it does not cause Aides and the test is a lie. It's a shame that when the conspiricy theoryist's had the attention of everyone they took off on tangents instead of just speaking actual facts in evidence.
