Want to share your spiritual experiences?

Post by spiritualteachers »

I'm curiuos if anyone has had any spiritual experiences around people who are at the end of life. Especially in the hospice care area or even near death experiences. Would love to hear them or even in private. :admin:

Here is some examples of these types of experiences.

You know that near death experiences can be explained scientifically right, it has nothing to do with heaven or gods.

That is the typical response for someone who hasn't read the literature or bothered to study it on their own. You realize that we don't even have a clue what conciousness is right? I'd probably be there right there with you in that mindset if I hadn't studied it myself.

If you'd like some links to the study and research into the phenomena I'd be happy to provide them so you may be more informed in the future about the subject.

I was going to post that you should be aware that most of the responses you'll see here will be argumentative rather than constructive. Maybe you'll get what you're looking for by PM.

I can't account for near death experiences. I can't say I believe in them, but I also won't say I believe they aren't real or are explainable through science. Any of it may be true, but I'm far too ignorant to have an opinion, so I'll abstain. :)

In your no doubt, learned experience which of course trumps all.

Actually I have studied it which is why I know there is a scientific explanation. Basically all research proposes that near-death experiences are hallucinations caused by activity in the brain as cells begin to dies because these occur during times of crisis. The Scientific explanation is always better then a paranormal god based one.

You don't know a thing about neurology do you, what do you think NDE"S are evidence of, gods and magic?

Oh I don't think he's an atheist. I would describe him more as an antitheist. Is that fair Capleton?

It's one thing to not believe. It's quite another to believe there is no god or to believe that science can account for individuals experiences.

Why just to be mocked by the trolls who hang out here in the Religion and Spirituality forum who have no interest in either except to mock those who do or might? No thank you. I think most here protest to much as the saying goes.

yeah totally, it went something like this
