Does a Christian and atheist still get to see the white light at the end of the tunnel,
thats the optic nerves shutting down. you get tunnel vision, light becomes blurry and just white and as your eyes shut down more, it becomes more and more tunneled (making you feel you are zooming to the white light)
thats science..is that always the case? well who knows, but that specific thing is known as a physical reaction to a brain shutting down..(going into conservation mode)
does the Christian get to see an old guy with a beard and a halo.
And what does an atheist see, bunch a math equations, or the other guy down below? Or does God personally greet them, with a V.I.P pass.
Thats when you default back to the spirituality 101 I suppose. you get the environment that is comfortable to you and your views in life.
If you're a christian, meeting christ, some angels, loved ones, etc would be ready for you.
Atheists have a mixed view..some atheists were theists first and so end up having a quasi-religious experience based on their childhood views, whereas others have talked about mostly just a waking up experience and it being more a realization we are these super advanced beings of energy verses the primate..we are basically bodysnatchers riding the human like a horse.
according to spiritualists and such, most high level animals are inhabited..dolphins, monkeys, etc. not sure about things like ants and stuff though..seems like such a tiny existance. In saying that, ants have purpose, they get drunk, have partys almost nightly, etc...fun nature facts.
What about someone who blind, and eyes or brain never seen what light or colours look like and have perception other then sensory like touch, taste, smell, and sound. Would they see it too?
nde's of people who never had or lost senses say they had them back, and more.
whats odd is sometimes people with nde's seem to lose some senses, and are then replaced with other senses they find trouble in explaining.
interesting stuff anyhow, almost a lore behind it now with all the accounts.
I wonder how much of it is real...guess we will all know one day (unfortunately)
During his coma he experienced a vivid journey into what he knew to be the afterlife, visiting both heavenly and not so heavenly realms.
Daz Smith sets out on an incredible journey as he works a blind remote-viewing target for the Farsight Institute. He's told nothing more than "this is target 14-A," but finds himself witnessing the John F. Kennedy assassination, and Kennedy's transformation at his moment of physical death. This video gives an inside look at the remote-viewing process and a dramatic example of where it can take you.

I think its all rubbish (Afterlife). We want to believe because if we don't. This is all we get.

I don't know what to think because I have never experienced it. It is like God...you can read all you want and make any conclusions based on everything available to study. The thing is, until you have a personal experience with God, you can't really "know." I will read the full article and probably reply more. S+ F until I get a few minutes! Thanks for the cool link!

What a great article this is!
If there is no eternity then we can only pretend that life has purpose—whether through religion or philosophy or politics—but it’s all about as substantial as a Hollywood movie. So grab a box of popcorn and have another drink, for all is temporal. What meant something yesterday means nothing today. And for those who are suffering, they are just terribly unlucky. Life is a game of play-pretend, narrated by a narcissist, full of noise and violence, giving significance to nothing
