Scientist finds the afterlife

A book will be published soon by a Neurosurgeon Dr Rbden Alexander. His book will be called 'Proof of Heaven'

He was convinced as most scientist are that 'near-death' experiences were just random firings of distressed neurons in the brain.
Until it happened to him and he ended up in a 7 day coma due to an infection. He had no cortical function and was brain dead.

But in that time things happened to him that he can hardly describe but three statements came to him clear and loud:

1) You are loved and cherished,dearly ,for ever
2)You have nothing to fear
3)There is nothing you an do wrong

So what would you do if you knew that you had nothing to fear in this life and that you were utterly loved and cherished?

This "Scientist" has found out he's insane if anything...

He's either a crackpot or just shamelessly cashing in on people's insecurities. Either explanation is a vastly more likely prospect, I think, than there actually being an afterlife. At least this book is a little less insulting than that one where a child tries to convince us of the afterlife. I think it's called, Heaven is for real. At least a scientist begins with a little more ethos than a child.

Anyway, as for your question, I can't even imagine such a scenario. One of my greatest fears is failure, and if I had nothing to fear, then I could never fail. It doesn't make any sense. The only things worth doing are those which pose some threat of failure. By the way, I'm already utterly loved and cherished by a multitude of people, i.e. my family, and it's a fact of which I rarely take any notice. Love doesn't really affect my plans.

Don't think so but then no-one has seen his book yet ;-) At least he can't be any worse than 'David Ike' who thinks all people in power are lizards from outer space.

Sounds like, as does every other normally logical thinker made a whole shit ton of assumptions of a "supernatural" area he briefly experienced that we don't know anything about. I hope he has solid evidence of his claims.

Why, one could go as far to say that while he was 'braindead' that the part of his brain that handled logic was offline!

I once had a dream that I was falling, I did not wake up on the ground, was my mind deceiving me? I do not know but I did not maintain a belief as though I had fallen. Did it actually happen in another plain I don't know. Form photography and may own experience I have learned the mind fills in information that my eye does not detect My mind is actually creating a fictitious reality. Most people do not see things or remember things exactly the same for this reason, until it is pointed out to them and there are enough processed similarities they come to a general consensus. The mind even allows for the changing of one belief for a more palatable one. I am not denying Dr. Alexander's belief in what he believes "happened" to him; there is also the possibility, with so many near death experiences in our midst, his mind filled in what it could not process in an attempt to complete the picture. It is a survival tool that inform the mind how to best respond to a perceived threat or desire. God and Heaven is an amazing thing, I just don't believe this man has any plausible information to share any more than a person who experiences alien abduction. Get a group of people, all die together, come back together, repeat several times, compare notes, and he may have a theory.

He's clearly suffered brain damage of some kind.

As a scientist he should know that his experiences when is brain is clearly not functioning normally are possibly the worst basis for an argument. Such claims will get shot down in seconds.
