Do You Think Near Death Experiences are Real?
The Show I Watched, "Life After Life"
Last night, I watched a National Geographic documentary on Near Death Experiences, or NDE. What I find so intriguing about NDE is that they have been occurring for thousands of years, and have been occurred in diverse demographics transcending race, religion, and culture.
Neurologists claim that NDE draw on past memories, or that the individual forms memories while they are in the process of dying. Some doctors say that the person really is in a heightened sense of alertness as they die, and that they are listening to the medical staff, and they may see things if their eyes are slightly open. Also, some doctors state that death is difficult to define. The body doesn't shut down immediately after the heart stops beating. There is still some electrical charge for up to 30 minutes past the heart stopping to beat. They also state that a person sees a white light because the brain is shutting down, and the light is like when an old television set shuts off, you see that small white light. Could all this be true?
I personally do think there is life after death, but I respect everyone's opinion, even if they don't agree with me. One of the reasons why I think NDE is real is because so many experiences have gone through and seen the same thing. Nearly all of the people see a bright light, they are in a tunnel, they see people who have passed, they feel an overwhelming sense of unconditional love, they may hear or see angels, Jesus, the Prophet Mohammed, God, etcetera.
People have seen these things, even thousands of years ago, when they haven't heard of other people who have gone through NDE. Why do nearly all the people see this? Why don't they imagine themselves at Walmart, or going bowling, or checking their mail? Now you know my to-do list is for the day. It seems to uniform to be just a matter of chance.
Please sound off in the comments whether or not you think NDE are real or false. There is no wrong opinion because we don't know for sure what is real or not. Please explain why you have came to that opinion.
