Compelling evidence for life after death?

19 January 2013, 19:41

Near death experiences (NDE’s) are well documented.  Many scientists have attempted to debunk these as being real ‘life after death’ experiences by subjecting test subjects to sensory deprivation and then oxygen deprivation. The result is labeled” traumatically induced sensory phenomenon”.

The fact that many subjects reported seeing a ‘ring of light’ had the non-believers whooping and dancing as they celebrated the ‘proof’ that so-called ‘near death experiences’ are simply the natural reaction of the human brain to the process of death.

Any other ‘experiences’ that  were reported during NDE’s were then attributed to hysteria, mental confusion, brain malfunction, etc.

Then comes the story of Viky Umipeg. See here http://www.near-death.com/experiences/evidence03.html

Born blind and involved in a ‘fatal’ motor accident on the way to her wedding, she reported being able to see herself lying in the ER and was able to describe specific details about the people who attended to her injuries.

Her subsequent experiences are extraordinary to say the least – she found herself in a new ‘plane of existence’ where she discovered that she instantly KNEW all about light, colors and shapes – even though these concepts are impossible to describe to an unsighted person in any terms that they would ever be able to fully understand.  When she awoke and spoke to the doctors who first treated her, she was inexplicably able to describe details of that ER event that were nothing short of astonishing.

Near death experiences have always been a contentious issue. Just like so many other things that we know about but are not fully able to understand,  these experiences had just enough anomalies between individual experiences to 
foment a culture of doubt. 

Atheists are forever demanding proof that this is not ‘all there is’. They would have everyone believe that we are born (a most remarkable process of quantum computing), we live, we die and then nothing. That’s it.

However, Vicky’s experience now begs the question: how is it possible to be born blind and to have no concept whatsoever of light or dark or colors or interactions of colors,  to then experience what is tantamount to her ‘consciousness’ leaving her body (and being able to describe the journey in detail) and to then ‘wake up’ with knowledge that she simply could not possibly possess. There is no way to explain how this new-found understanding came about – no scientific \ natural \ humanistic way, that is.

As a believer, I have no problem accepting that what Vicky said she experienced, is true - it simply confirms the teachings of  Jesus Christ.
