    Sounds like a great acid trip! I hope that I don`t even have to mention that it`s well known that the bodies of people that have near death experiences release all kinds of drugs to make the body and mind feel better about it all. This guy saying that no one ever told him about needing a relationship with God is probably crap just as well as not being pertinent to his hallucination.

    sigh... The brain does weird things when it`s deprived of oxygen, for example if your heart has stopped.. Halucinations tunnels of light, all common.. This is pretty common knowledge.. God didn`t do it... Also, I-A-B, get your act together.. This is stupid, irrelevant and only contributing to my boredom..

    Imaginary doesn`t always equal not real. Like when someone in a dream grabs your arm and you feel it. There`s nobody holding your arm but you still feel it. I`ve had an out-of-body experience, and it was probably my brain losing track of where I was from the meds the doctors gave me (medazalam is great, shame you never remember it). Whatever happened, whatever caused it, I remember sitting on the bed and seeing myself wheeled out in a chair at the same time.

    When I was like 12 I told my mom I didn`t believe in God and she sat for a while and said it was her fault. She then told me she believed because when her brother was 7, he fell into a coma because of a tumor on his brain. When he finally woke up he told the family that it was ok for him to die because he saw Jesus and God and they said it was time. He died that night. I still am unsure of what I believe when it comes to God, I however am not a fan of the Jesus idea.

    Doctors and all the scientists who engaged in medical research: "Gee, thanks - guess we won`t bother next time since we did nothing."

    *sigh* When somebody survives a horrible accident, it seems like God gets all the credit - but when they die the doctors get blamed and/or sued. How does that meme go? Oh yeah, Ffffuuuuuuuuu-

    His friend risked his life going into the plane and pulling him out, God got credit. The Doctors managed to bring him back from certain death, God gets credit.

    For those who heard the word "God" and didn`t finish it: when he was describing his NDE, not once did he mention that he actually saw anything having to do with Christ or the Christian deity. The closest thing to it was when he said that to his left he felt the presence of the almighty God, but he couldn`t see it. Therefore, his experience was just interpreted by him to fit his Christian beliefs, but the experience itself could still be real without proof of the existence of Christian mythology.

    Dammit, so many other people with the Two-Face jokes...

    Anyway, out of body experiences aren`t all that special, especially when your brain is all coked up on a roostertaik of drugs like those it realeases when you`re dying.

    And when my heart stopped, actually not long before I decided on atheism, it went just like any other dream. Felt like it lated longer than it did, so I can understand where he`s coming from with the "perception of time" deal, but that`s about it.

    Oh, and why is that this guy suddenly gets a "Get out of hell free" card by begging AFTER the fact, but so many others get only one chance?

    I really don`t want to watch this, so can someone tell me if his account is the same as that four (or was it six?) year old boy who came back drawing pictures and saying he had met his grandpa and knew facts about the sister his mother miscarried even though he`d never been told about it? They wrote a book about it but I can`t remember the name.

    @mcboozerilla

    Why shouldn`t we mock this guy? First, he attributes all the good fortunes of his live to a divine being and none of it to the people (directly or indirectly) responsible for his continued existence. Also, he fails to recognize that the divine being did not protect him from having such an accident. Finally, he chose to enter the public arena and prosthelytize. Sure, it may not be "nice" - but I find ignoring the decades of medical research and the hard work of the doctors who saved his life as "not nice".

    Don`t even start with him, it`s a lost cause.

    Those people attribute the good works of an to "divine inspiration" while everything bad is free will or chance.

    You can`t argue with someone who willingly jumps into a logic trap.

The thing people forget is that to have faith you must believe in it without proof... for with true proof, you cannot have faith, you have knowledge and nothing else.

    Say that when you live past the ripe old age of 35 because the "true proof" of medicine and science has raised your standard of living.

    Another man`s actions and modern medicine saved this man`s life, but he`s going to attribute it all to some being he "sensed" in a dream based on faith...

    Sounds pretty much like the hallucinations I had when they gave me diamorphine when I had cancer...the difference being rather than not being in pain anymore and seeing bright lights, i wasn`t in pain anymore but i was hallucinating that my family were trying to pull out all my tubes and tranfusion bags. That was totally real to me too at the time - but it wasn`t.

    Still, if believing it was god rather than his brave friend that got him out of there, and it was god rather than medical staff that took his pain away for a short time....well if all that works for him, then good for him - it`s obviously giving him some strength to cope now.

    This guy was tripping !I`ve had a number of drugs in my life that caused the same effects.I`ve pretty much met all the Gods and entered about a billion heavens and even a few versions of Hell on Occassion. My faveourite experience when I was in India when I had something called a Bang Lassi . I was transported through several universes and even met the God Ganesh and Hanuman quite clearly but it did not convert me .I personally believe the root to all religions came from Mankinds long history of drug taking from mushrooms to Peyote to man-made chemicals. When I briefly died in a car accident I saw and felt nothing at all until I was revived in hospital and was pumped full of drugs.It was lovely. For the entire time I thought the wall paper was a charming rainforest pattern right down to the detailed parrots peeking coyly from the hibiscus. I was somewhat surprised to realise on recovery that my room was painted white !

    Why is some testimony of a person considered valid truth? I might believe that he believes it, but that doesn`t make it true. Also, NDEs have been shown to be able to be influenced after-the-fact, demonstrating the unreliable nature of human memory and experience.

    My opinion on faith and religion is largely influenced by my background and belief in science. Scientific tenets allowing me to not fully deny what I cannot prove to be false, I`ve always been indifferent to religious stories. That said, I would love undeniable proof of the existence of something more than the life we know. But without it, I cannot embrace it. Unfortunately, this story and everything this guy describes, while probably compelling to people that already believe, likely demonstrates nothing more than the scrambling of a highly traumatized mind likely treated with heavy pain meds.

    That sounds A LOT like the fabled `tripping` that`s said to happen on the verge of death.

    He mentions the colors being brighter, and the edges sharper, and strong emotions, and distortion of time...anyone who knows anything about hallucinogens prob recognizes those as being exactly, EXACTLY the things people describe after tripping. Like, if someone showed me a clip of him relating his experience w/o any context, I would instantly assume he was talking about hallucinating.

    So idk about either option. I think he experienced what many others who have been brought back did. If someone never tripped before, they`d probably say "Oh, that must be heaven, since I was dying and all of a sudden found myself in a strange, surreal place and felt very odd." when they were just hallucinating and didn`t recognize it.

    Allegedly the effects come a rush of DMT(DiMethylTriptamine), a very potent hallucinogen that also affects sleep/dreaming, from the pineal gland(?).
