A devout Christian woman turns atheist after spending 30 days in a coma. “I was promised butterflies and big pink fluffy clouds by my neuroscientists,” says the woman, “All the scientists and doctors I had spoken to in the past guaranteed that I would experience heaven if I went into a deep enough coma. Turns out they were lying. I may sue.”
The woman says:
"As a righteous Christian, I was assured that the stories of heaven were true. I had spoken to numerous neurosurgeons and neuroscientists, and they assured me that the deep coma would produce all the scientific proof I needed to continue believing. I researched all the possible ways of inducing a coma, and finally settled on bacterial meningitis is a likely way to produce the necessary experience. It took me some time to find a suitable way of catching this rare disease, but eventually I found poor family in Mexico willing to give me a blood transfusion from their eldest son who was suffering from the disease. As a good Christian, I was able to pay for the boys recuperation and eventual recovery. I was injected with 50 cc of his blood and immediately flown to a hospital in San Diego, where I languished in a coma for 30 days."

Christian Woman Turns Atheist After NDE Blog entry by- 'The Righteous Atheist' | Oct 11, 2012 | 0 comments
Well, that blog entry has been created today. It belongs to a website called "thaumaturgical.com" which is controlled by five profiles, which are- Mark Knowles, The Religious Atheist, Mark Ewbie, Daily Tampon and BT Evilpants.
what more proof u need mark....u r ex christian who turned atheist because jesus didnt choose to reply to u...u r not scientist turned christian that i can believe u...i strongly feel u r the mark who wrote gospel some 1900 years ago....
Nope. I trust that blog entry. The reputation of that host website (thaumaturgical.com) is beyond doubt. I guess they even beat online mags like 'Science' or 'Nature', when it comes to the reliability of facts that they share.
And, added to that, the people who run that website are all sweet, reliable people. Who on earth can doubt the integrity of their characters? Plus, they are all professional scientists themselves. Just look at their curriculum vitae.
Something seems funny about this, and by funny I mean suspicious. Who would attempt to voluntarily induce a coma in order to disprove the afterlife? This doesn't make any damn sense whatsoever.
This just seems like a reversed attempt at the same story we've heard a thousand times from the theist side, you know the story where the atheist has a NDE and suddenly converts. The problem is that the story isn't going to convince anyone in reverse.
You can pull the beard off a fake Santa but the child who is a true believer won't accept that, same goes for believers in God... because they already believe and that has a lot more to do with emotions and conviction in the FACE of evidence than it does with positive evidence.
Just got off work actually. It's not really ironic, because the story is a manufactured one, it never happened. It would be ironic if the story was actually true.
This story reminds me of watching a movie in Bible Class, way back when, I was forced to go in with the other teenagers, we watched a movie called Escape from Hell. In this movie a scientist/doctor induces cardiac arrest to study Near Death Experiences and ends up descending to Hell. One of those fun "scare tactic" movies the youth group leaders would play when they were too lazy to drum up a sermon.
that qualifies as a 7.5 on my wierd-shit-o-meter,... prety good for this early on a thursday mornin,..... jeeze people are stupid..... i mean really,.... i like christianity, a whole lot,... christians, indiviualy, i have real problems with at times!
Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people,...

I have talked to many atheists and some say that atheists are people who do not believe in the concept of God. But in the past people said that atheists were people who believed that there was "no God". What...
