World's Largest-Ever Study Of Near-Death Experiences
2012 Results of Major NDE Studies:
“For centuries, those brought back from death's door have claimed they had a glimpse of the afterlife.
They speak of seeing a tunnel, a light, dead relatives, or their own lives flashing before their eyes.
Some even recall floating out of their body and watching doctors struggling to revive them.
Medical and scientific experts have maintained these 'near-death experiences'
do not exist and are simply a normal reaction to intolerable stress.
Yet now university researchers claim to have produced compelling scientific evidence that they really do happen.
Others say this may show the mind continues to exist after death….
…The researchers say known medical explanations cannot account for these out-of-body sensations.”
