Is this thread in the right topic?
This is an interesting topic right here.
Just before we die we see a tunnel with a white light at the end.. the decent to heaven?
Yeah, most religions believe that the 'tunneling effect' we see before losing conciousness is the decent into heaven.
However there have been tests with astronaughts to see how much G-forces they can wdthstand before blacking out.
All the astronaughts claimed to see the light/tunnel.
After this was investigated, it was found that this is simply caused by the sudden rush of blood away from the brain.
If your truely interested in the topic...
you should look into the writtings of "Eric W. Weisstein".
He brings up some good points on the physics of (for lack of better words) "travelling to the next plane of existance".
As for your question on other people's opinion on the topic, (and your other questions about animals in heaven) i cant give you a straight answer on
my opinion, as personally, im an Omnist.
(So I would have to talk about quantum physics and the conciousness.
