Well, it seems like its been debunked. I do mean really debunk! Read this carefully...


The 'Proof of Heaven' Author Has Now Been Thoroughly Debunked by Science -

When Dr. Eben Alexander wrote his book it seems that he conveniently forgot a few small damning details that are now coming back to haunt him, for lack of a better word. The coma he says he fell into during his severe illness was apparently medically-induced and the doctor who induced his coma says so herself. She also says that at no point was Alexander "dead" but rather conscious and just "delirious" as he overcame his illness, meaning that his experiences were likely a product of that. The most amazing aspect of this whole incident is that Alexander didn't consider anyone else might come forward with their version of events including medical evidence.


It seems this guy fooled a lot of folks. I hope most find out. If you go to this article you can read the story.www.theatlanticwire.com...

I myself almost bought the book. I read a lot and it "was" on my long list.

I won't read it now




again "The most amazing aspect of this whole incident is that Alexander didn't consider anyone else might come forward with their version of events including medical evidence."




Oh, really Mr. Moody

And another goes down. another goes down.
Another one bites the dust!!! lol

Damn you Mr. Darwin!!!!!!

If theres a God he cares far more about staying hidden then he ever did us.

Or far more likely, science has a far closer guess at our origins.

That said of course i can't help but read up on stories like this, just incase..

A lot of people like him are great at wanting to sell, sell, sell! To whoever they could. I cannot believe people like Benny Hinn are still in business and it has been proven they never heal the people they say are healed. I'll find some links later.

As former President Franklin Roosevelt said before: "The average citizen is a very gullible individual." I think people are looking for answers and when people have faith (Christianity) or some type of problem they tend to listen to people who can make an easy buck off them.

I remember all of these people as I was a young Christian who was upset to see these people on air instead of anything targeted to teen Christians. What I liked about the shows for teen Christians is that you had great inspirational shows. Anything relating to Christian music, discussing the bible, etc. It felt very powerful.

But the shows aired late in the night when you naturally wanted to sleep. And in return I was stuck with boring old people who wanted money. It just felt like whoa we need cool shows to bring people to Christ. Not just people begging. What fun is that?

Yeah, I was a regular at church up until I got out of the service. I use to go to the summer camps (and get in trouble chasing the girls and do a lot of kitchen duty) and all in all had a good time.

It was. I use to go to Grand Ave. Methodist church and they had great stuff going on all the time. The camps (I'd always bring a close friend tell them lots of girls! :lol
The camps were in the mountains of California, like big bear, very nice.

I'm from Northern California and there are many beautiful Christian girls out here. It feels hypocritical as an atheist to say this. But it feels like God had his hand in their creation. Stunning!

The sad part is that it wont matter to those who believe him,
they hold belief to be more important than truth, they would
rather believe a delusion than face the possibility that they
are wrong about religion and that many of its followers are
simply there to take money.

One day they might figure this out and instead of paying middle
men to lie to them they might actually give that money to someone
who will put it to use feeding the hungry or medical help to those
who do not have it. So much money is wasted on these charlatans.

Yes, I agree with your points.

This current fraud of a "NDE" account by a "doctor" took hold of many that just used it to REINFORCE the stories of others who reported NDE's.

Sad

"Universal Acquires ‘Proof Of Heaven’; Bestseller About Dying Surgeon Who Glimpses Afterlife"

source: www.deadline.com...

I wonder if this will still be made?


EXCLUSIVE: Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle for movie rights to Proof Of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey Into The Afterlife, the runaway bestselling non-fiction book about a man who glimpsed the afterlife during a near death health crisis. Mary Parent and Cale Boyter will produce through Disruption Entertainment. Deal was six figures and three studios chased the book.


This should be interesting to follow (and see if this will still be made) and such.

Deal was six figures !!

I didn't read the book. I read a synopsis of his story. I wasn't attracted to it at all.
So I didn't read it. This site has lots of stories people have written in about.
NDE stories. Not selling books. Just regular people. Some are rather interesting.

Very good article on NDE. Also the subject in the OP talks about his NDE.


an NDE can make a convert of a skeptic. Dr. Eben Alexander is a well-known case of an agnostic scientist who became convinced of the existence of the spiritual.

He has often shared his story in television interviews with journalists and expressed his views in lectures and in books and video presentations, which he sells on his website.

Alexander, a neurosurgeon, according to his autobiography, has described his experience in the same terms as the Belgian researchers: "hyper-reality," "too real to be real."

In the beginning, he tried to interpret his experience as a brain function, he wrote on his website, but he became increasingly spiritual. He has come to the conclusion that people are reincarnated.

Alexander says his experience could not have been a hallucination, because the parts of the brain necessary to produce his experiences were basically dead when he had them.


'Afterlife' feels 'even more real than real,' researcher says
