A serious and well researched book with lots of examples presented to support the authors assertions There s lot to read lots of presented to support the authors assertions There s a lot to read take in and sometimes it can be a bit tedious to work through some of the text I m not sure that I m completely convinced that the authors have cracked it but as part of a general reading programme this book will provide a good source of information and context This is an excellent uite factual and therefore slightly dry study of the evidence for as the information and context This is an excellent uite factual and therefore slightly dry study of the evidence for as the title says verified paranormal phenomena from near death experiences The evidence is well presented and clear cut and indeed overwhelming and in this the book fulfils its aims very well However of course as the authors acknowledge some people are never going to be convinced as a matter of a religious faith in a material or purely physical world The evidence here is fascinating and undeniable As the book concentrates on slightly dry evidence it is not perhaps the starting point I would recommend for a first look at the issues unless the reader is used to such an approach Kenneth Ring s Lessons from the Light or the work of Raymond Moody are easier starting points or wishes to make sure the facts presented are absolutely as unambiguous as possible as they are here Essential reading for anyone with a genuine interest in near Death Experiences First published in the Netherlands the English language edition appeared due to the support of the international association for Near Death Studies IANDS This book is as the Forward states a valuable catalog of important cases of paranormal phenomena from NDEs that have been investigated confirmed and documented by researchers over the years To call it valuable is actually an understatement this is an immensely valuable contribution to the growing body of evidence that materialist reductionism must surely be replaced by a wider view of the universe that does not dismiss the fundamental importance of human consciousness Literally millions of people alive today have reported clear lucid consciousness and thought including often accurate perception of the surrounding environment occurring during periods of time in which there is every medical reason to believe that their brains were either severely impaired or entirely non functioning These so called near death experiences NDEs have been studied under rigorous conditions by cardiologists around the world and the results have been published in scientific journals including prestigious medical journals such as The Lancet Resuscitation and the Journal of the Royal Society of MedicineSeveral of the very best cases are described in detail in this excellent bookThere is no self contradiction in.

Titus Rivas ¼ 2 ReviewAnt tenet of materialism materialist ideology trumps evidence The thinking of militant atheists is for the most part based on the materialism implied by classical
physics which has been nown to be fundamentally incorrect for over a century And materialism simplywhich has been nown to be fundamentally incorrect for over a century And materialism simply accommodate the reality of NDE and psi phenomena If materialism is proven false by the data for the NDE and for psi then one of the foundations of their opposition to religion is thereby removedIn short the deniers and debunkers tend to be militant atheists who are motivated by allegiance to an obsolete worldview by ignorance of the implications Of The New Physics the new physics by a hatred of religion If they admitted to the reality of psychic abilities such as telepathy and of near death experiences as involving a genuine separation of mind from body then the materialistic foundation of their worldview would crumble Hence their vehement denial of any evidence for the existence of the NDE as involving a genuine separation of mind from body Many skeptics are fond of pointing out various atrocities which have made a mockery of religious belief such as the occasional persecution of witches and heretics in medieval timesBut we can just as e The phenomenon of near death experience has now been the subject of popular interest for nearly half a century and descriptions of cases appear in an ever growing number of collections and individual
volumes The interest is not surprising but it also means that the most impressive sounding and famous cases areThe interest is not surprising but it also means that the most impressive sounding and famous cases are in a variety of contexts together with reports that may well be accurate but have not been corroborated or examined by relevant professionals This makes it difficult for a non expert to assess just how robust is the actual evidence on which the claims are based Things get even confusing when one lacks medical nowledge and is presented with ever so simple medical explanations that seem to do away with the subject altogetherThis book is an important step in helping to resolve these issues in two waysfirstly the cases it presents including the most familiar ones are re examined by going to the original sources and their corroborative evidence secondly the authors ask and get comprehensible answers to the probing medical uestions that if not answered leave the layperson uneuipped to deal with contradictory claimsAll this information is presented in terms that are accessible to a non specialist What then emerges points to individual consciousness being active in places and at times when according to the current mainstream model it should not exist at all I hope the authors go on to provide high uality material for thinking about one of life s big uestion.

The statement that the mind can exist without a functioning brain hence it is at least a logical possibility and the only way to decide if it is actually true is by a careful examination of the data This book provides that careful examinationThe authors as well as many respected physicians brain surgeons neuroscientists and philosophers have concluded that these experiences provide solid evidence that normal even enhanced consciousness can exist in the absence of a properly functioning brain Their conclusion is the NDE is exactly what it appears to be a genuine separation of mind from body during the early stages of biological deathHowever a small yet vocal minority of scientists and physicians deny this conclusionIf this were almost any other field of inuiry the controversy would have been settled by the data decades agoHowever the study of near death experiences NDEs is not like any other field of inuiry The data of NDEs challenge deeply held worldviews worldviews that are concerned not only with science but also with religious and philosophical issues As such the evidence arouses strong passions and for many a strong desire to dismiss itIt is impossible to fully understand this controversy without realizing that it has a strong ideological component Most of the so called skeptics are militant atheists with a strong hidden agenda of promoting the ideology of materialism the doctrine that everything including life and mind can be explained by the interaction of particles of matter and force fields The Data Of NDEs Indicate of NDEs indicate the mind can exist without a functioning brain which strongly refutes materialismRefusing to accept data that falsifies a scientific theory turns it into an ideology a belief held as an article of faith held despite evidence that it is not correct And there seems to be a growing realization that ideological factors play a crucial role in several scientific controversies Philosopher Tyler Burge 1993 has argued that the naturalistic view of the world is like a political or religious ideology than like a position supported by evidence and that MATERIALISM IS AN ARTICLE OF FAITH MORE TO THE is an article of faith More to the point neuroscientist Mario Beauregard in his book The Spiritual Brain has written Materialists have conducted a running war against psi and NDE research for decades because any evidence of psi s validity no matter how minor is fatal to their ideological system Recently for example self professed skeptics have attacked atheist neuroscience grad student Sam Harris for having proposed in his book titled The End of Faith 2004 that psi research has validity Harris is only following the evidence But in doing so he is clearly violating an import.
