    and the atheists will, of course, dismiss this neurosurgeon's testimonial because, as we all know, atheists - specifically glocktalk atheists - know so much more about neurology than any expert in the field.

    I met some 'beautiful blue-eyed woman' last night as well.
    To bad my alarm messed up my near death experience. :whistling:

    Does that count?

    I believe there's a continuance of our existence after the death of the physical body.

    Just imagine an intelligent existence without physical life.

    Intelligence reduced to sub-atomic and electrical impulses that exists and functions in a totally non-physical dimension.

    Our dreams just might be a sneak preview of what's to come after we die?

    The guy had a dream while in a coma. That's all this proves.

    ....but he did not die, he was in a coma. You can't see the 'after life' if you are alive.

    Is his perception of an afterlife while in a coma his reality, or does it apply to everyone?

    Actually, I think what the point of this is, the coma he was in could not produce "dreams"...and because he is an expert in the field, he knows that. That is why this is so profound for him.

    That is not my endorsement of this, just putting facts on the table.

    As has been mentioned, a hallucination while in a state of coma is far from an after-death experience.

    No, no afterlife. In the most abstract sense, information theory suggests that the information that compromises "us" is always preserved in some fashion. Which only means that if you knew every detail of how your body disintegrated and how its energy entropied then it would be theoretically possilbe to follow that back and surmise the entirety of your life. Except, that kind of perfect knowledge is unobtainable in any practical sense, so even that train of thought leads to nothing.

    Here....right now.
    This is quite an amazing story because as a neurosurgeon he would understand the illusions of the brain under stress, yet he feels compelled to believe this was a real event ...maybe something to it in my opinion.

    If he had truly died, he would not be around to be able to give that interview.

    Quote: the unconditional love that I now know God and the universe have toward us. Unquote

    For what It's worth, I've personally known three people who have had so called 'near death experiences', including my dear sweet mother-in-law who lived about 50 years after her experience.

    None of them had the experiences that you see in some popular books today. But they all were convinced of God's love for us and none of them wanted to come back to this world. But they all realized God's love for them and that He still had a plan for them to fulfill.
