Re: Here we go again: Science has "proven" there is no life after death
Oh please.., studies like these are always infected with theories that because there's an event like a spike in neurological activity, it explains an NDE experience and supports a conclusion that there is no possibility of life after physical death.
The blogosphere lights up with atheists adding in their two cents (BT atheists excluded). There's always the grand inferential leap when studies like this surface.
But you and I know that science is not in the business of making metaphysical claims (or shouldn't be).
I wonder, really.., if there are any studies that found a spike in neurological activity after cardiac arrest in which the subject(s) did NOT have an NDE. Meaning, they didn't come back from near death with any claims of meetings with deceased relatives or knowledge of anything related to medical procedures during their cardiac arrest.
Also, their have been cases where a subject had an NDE experience and described what was happening beyond their immediate treatment area. And, there have been reported cases in which the subject had information about a deceased person they could not have possibly had during their lifetime and was later confirmed as fact by an older relative.
I wonder, if these stories are true, how the brain activity spike event would explain them away.
