I'm an atheist, but I've always wondered whether or not something really does happen after we die.
I've heard many stories about people with near-death experiences, and it's always the same story: They see a bright light, they go through it and meet
God. They feel happy and think it's the most beautiful think they've ever seen. Sometimes there are past family members present. Then God will tell
them that they still have things to accomplish on Earth, so he sends them back.
The thing that bothers me is, in all the stories I've heard like this, the person in Christian.
Well what about people who believe in different gods? Do they see a different god, or is it all the same?
More importantly, what about Atheists?!
The reason I must know is because I'm starting to think this whore near-death experience thing is all physiological -- that it doesn't really happen,
the person is just in a trance and they automatically think about the first thing they naturally would think about: God and heaven.
But what happens to Atheists? Does it just go black, or do they have similar experiences? Something else?
If you know anything about this (or have anything to add) please comment. If you know of any stories of atheists having near-death experiences, please
