Bob Woodruff just hosted a show about Near Death Experiences (NDE) called Beyond Belief. In it he said he had a NDE while covering the war in Iraq.
I know of two friends who told me about their relatives (a son and a cousin) having a NDE. Each described the stories as similar to ones presented in Dr. Moody’s books.
In the show, there is also an atheist who also had a NDE, but shrugs it off as just some natural occurance just before going into nothingness. The atheist thinks that folks who have NDE’s do not experience death at all, but just something very close to death.
The thing about NDEs is that just about all of these folks say that they are fully aware, that it is not some dream like state, and that all of their senses are fully functioning and are even more alert or sensitive to their surroundings.
There was a priest a while back who claimed to have a NDE, and says he would have gone to Hell had he not been revived.
Have you personally had any encounters with a NDE or has anyone you known had that experience ?
