How do you explain the countless countless NDE's and past future life regressions that have been told?
regressions are a state of hypnosis which the person I believe can not lie.
Would be interesting for your comeback.
Forgot to add where people know they are being trailed by family members, such as the granny saving me from a fire or something..

With all due respect for your beliefs, but you're the perfect example of how traumatic experiences make "spiritual" events become reality.
The fact that you were seeking answers is a catalyst for your brain to accept something, anything, to fill that sentimental gap that you have.
On a general note, people can't handle death, period. The few that do, are extreme points of view on death, and most of them are not accepted because people don't want to face a possible scenario: that nothing exists after death.
People are too afraid to accept that when they die, their existence also stops to exist. While now you're a conscious, thinking being, after you die, there is simply nothing. And the fear and marvel at this scenario is the same reaction that people have with Black Holes. Most people can't understand how "nothing" can actually exist.
In nature, even in void, there are particles, air, light, SOMETHING. The "nothing" scenario brings all belief systems to the ground.
I was quite surprised when a Tv Show (Flashforward) portrayed this scenario in one of their characters.
To those who don't know the show, all humanity passes out for 2 minutes and has a vision of their lifes 6 months into the future, while they are unconscious.
One of the character doesn't have a vision. Doesn't see anything, doesn't feel anything, only a huge void that he didn't felt. The conclusion was that he was dead. He didn't see heaven, he didn't see hell or anything else... He saw a "black screen".
IMO, that's what happens.
There is a consensus that the view of Heaven/Hell is a made-up thing to input fear in people and control their actions according to your statement of right/wrong.
Some people go in another direction, deny that view and make their own idea of after-life. But that is a different kind of system, because in that case, it's an individual made-up scenario so you can accept your life "here", and not fearing death, or at least, that when you die, you stop to exist.
Either way, the concept of after-life, in my opinion, is just a self-defense mechanism to prevent you from stop living your daily life, or exaggerating your life in order to "make the most of it" while you can.
...most people, without this system of mental self-defense, would freak out.
People can't handle the word "end".
