Dr. Parnia's NDE research is a highly well hidden skeptics dream-soon-to-come-through and here is why.
Parnia's methodologies are purposefully and fatally flawed to skew the outcome to the NDE=brain function POV. He is relying on placing signs on out-of-normal-sight places inside operating rooms in the hope, and hope it is, that these signs will be seen by NDErs. This presupposes that NDErs will see the signs. Why in the world should they? Do you think sign reading will be important to a NDEr?
Mark this down. Parnia is playing quite a game and proponents, when he releases next summer, will be shocked, startled and permanently smacked down as Parnia will claim that NDErs did not see his signs. duh, ya' think?
You heard it here and if you wish to spread the word, please not it came for a great and proven skeptic.
There's an issue I see with that IMO. Just because they put some signs doesn't prove anything to me. How many times have I been at an area but don't notice a certain sign, photo, landmark, or billboard even lol. I feel like if you were out of your body you could be too focused on something to even care to look around. Some people look around but it doesn't mean they'll see it. I've heard of this before.
