NDE's are a result of the body dying, the lack of oxygen and a specific mixture of chemical processes cause them. I have never seen any evidence to prove they are more than that and absolutely no explanation as to why most people have no such experiences, if floating off to magical land is what happens when you die then why does it not happen to everyone? I have a close friend that died and was resuscitated, he had no NDE...does he not have a soul? Like i said, i believe it is a very specific mix of things that cause them hence not everyone experiences them.
And if it is a basic biological process...then I have the same question you do...why doesn't everyone have one?
If it is a chemical reaction of '___'...why doesn't everyone experience it? If the lack of oxygen causes this...why doesn't everyone experience it?
It doesn't seem like a very "scientific" explaination if only a few experience it, but it is a basic biological process.

I'd like to interject, before all the atheist nuts move in for the kill.

I've heard that when you die, your brain floods with '___', which is a hallucinogenic chemical that is also released during REM sleep.
So, he probably did see his grandmother, in the same kind of way I've "gone to school wearing just my underwear" kind of way -- know what I mean?

I have not heard of any religion that has life after death as part of its preachings having a "no post death life" as a get out clause just in case science catches them out.....yet again!
That is true...but this process they are describing is more like taking '___'. Most people (all people?) are going to have a reaction if they take '___'...yet it won't be the same experience.
In NDEs...if it was caused by '___', it isn't only that ALL people don't react to it...but those that do all have very similar "mind" experiences.
So when I say a biological process...I don't mean so much as blue eyes, or unique fingerprints....I more-so mean when people are injected with morphine, it's going to make them feel good...only a very very small minority don't feel the effects. Where as with the supposed '___'...it appears only a very few do feel the effects.

The problem with the scientist and super naturalist is that when science can not currently explain a problem, the super naturalist takes that as their own proof of their own theory.
But that is what being a super naturalist entails. Having no proof of any side.
