Brit:  "I love hearing about how others feel about NDE's so...leave a comment!"

Brit,

I originally found out about NDEs in 1975 by reading Raymond Moody's book Life after Life:  [1].  Since then I have read hundreds of these accounts.  Most of those I read were on the NDERF site, [2].  They promote the idea that God's promise is to be trusted.  We do not live a life of toil for naught.  All we do (or do not do through inaction) matters.

The people of the world who experience NDEs are very much like the explorers of times past.  Explorers would return home to tell their countrymen strange stories.  Some would believe them--many would not.  Eventually, science will catch up on the trail blazed by these pioneers.  Indeed, there is already evidence that this is beginning to happen.  The movie Flatliners ([3]) shows a way that this might be accomplished; however, the technique used in the movie is far too dangerous to be useful in this regard.  Other, safer methods are being found.  See, e.g., [4].
