How could someone prove the eternal validity of the soul?

If you would

Go to:
and register, then search for "near death".

You will find a controlled scientific study of near death experiences.

"Near-death experience in survivors of cardiac arrest: a prospective study in the Netherlands by Doctors Pim van Lommel, Ruud van Wees, Vincent Meyers, Ingrid Elfferich."

In the above study you will find a near death experience that surprised the doctor (P. van Lommel) very much, it was the one about false teeth. It confirmed the "information while dead," part of NDEs.

P. van Lommel went on to say: "Several theories have been proposed to explain NDE. We did not show that psychological, neurophysiological, or physiological factors caused these experiences after cardiac arrest."

If not any of these then what?

The Doctor also talked about the Pam Reynolds surgery.
She was "dead" for approximately two hours, the blood drained from her head, and when she was brought back to life, she described the details of her surgery.

Since this study, funding and permission has been made available for a much larger study, and it is now in progress. It is due in about two years.

Science will only be able to eliminate the physical factor. Then if NDES are not caused by anything physical (the body) they must be considered spiritual. That's the way I see it.

The only way we can deal with life is through personal experience. We can tell others about our experiences, but we can't prove them. We can't even prove we had toast for breakfast. Thousands of individuals have recorded their NDEs, while they are all unique in some aspects, other aspects are the same.

In order to understand NDEs, I believe it is necessary to read several hundred of them. After that, you will see the thread of logic and truth all contain.

NDEers welcome scientific research into the experiences, I have never known a researcher to come away not believing in the reality of the experience.

Remember that some followers of science and/or religion have vested interests, and depend on their beliefs to earn their living. Many will never accept NDEs, but that is ok, the information I write is for those still seeking and learning.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. -- George Carlin
