Proving Life After Death

A leading cardiologist , Dr Pim van Lommel — who has become convinced of the existence of life after death after hearing his patients’ experiences — is talking about his research and beliefs at a major conference in London in March. He has become the first medical practitioner to risk his reputation with a full, systematic trial into the phenomenon. He interviewed 344 heart patients at his hospital in the Netherlands who had all clinically died, some for five minutes or longer, before being resuscitated. Of these, 62 — or 18 per cent — reported some ongoing experience after the medical monitors had pronounced them to be dead. Half were aware they were ‘dead’, and 15 had out-of-body experiences where they were aware of the actions of the hospital staff around the body. One patient was able to tell staff who were looking for his dentures that a blond nurse had removed them, and had been put them on a tray on the other side of the room. Since that initial study, which was published in the prestigious Lancet medical journal in 2001, Lommel has resigned his post as a practicing cardiologist to devote his time to further research and lecturing on Near Death Experiences.

    oh, it exists alright, but even with all the testimony in the world, there will always be those who doubt, so I'm not really here to spend ALL the time in the world to convince people. I'm just saying that there is an after existence.
