Afterlife exists, says top brain surgeon

Postby Helen-Healing » Sat Oct 13, 2012 9:17 am

A prominent scientist who had previously dismissed the possibility of the afterlife says he has reconsidered his belief after experiencing an out of body experience which has convinced him that heaven exists.

From The telegraph.

What a bit of personal experience will do, eh? Not quite sure if it's a 'scientific reason', but hey.

Dr. Alexander's story featured on Alex Tsakaris' Skeptiko podcast back in November of 2011.

The Telegraph news feed must be running a little slow! :lol: :lol:

It's interesting how quickly experience overrides theoretical objections - even with the trained mind.

Why is this still a question?

All normal rational thinking people who have studied the evidence of people like Sir William Crooks and Sir Oliver Lodge have known this for decades.

It is now about how science can explain this and for that there is only one person who has come up with the answers and also come up with a full flaw free theory of the creation of the Universe and Quantum Gravity. It took an Engineer to do this though - not these emotionally constrained decision making theoretical physicists.

http://www.pearsonianspace.com for the answers. Please can someone try and fault the logic presented and opinions really are not valid in scientific discipline. By the way great minds have already tried. Professor Brian Josephson, Nobel prize winner in Physics, could not fault the logic but did say he did not like the theory because it did not need to use Relativity theory.

Someone please.............
