Near-Death Experience- Proved True?


Does this prove the reality of the Near-Death Experience? It may well in the eyes of some researchers. Many consider it already proved, like Peter Fenwick (Here’s an interview with him: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=iyZxi3iChiA). Others like Susan Blackmore and Chris French (whom I’ve written about before. See: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/01/chris-french-mba-gold.html) maintain the Skeptical stance. I suspect they will continue to do so because of the pressure of MBA. This new addition to the debate will not be the last word on the matter. The Materialistic Paradigm is so fundamental to Western society that I doubt if it could function without it! This is reason enough to keep the matter forever juggling in the air, no matter what evidence is discovered.

Ross Hemsworth of Now That’s Weird (Background: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/06/now-thats-weird-conference-2008.html) has actually been to William Hill and put on a bet that proof of LAD, Life-After-Death, will be discovered. He got good odds of 500-1, if I recall. I doubt if he will be allowed to collect now, but if you put the same bet on today the odds would probably not be as high.
