While in a coma following a car crash six-year-old Alex Malarkey believes he went to heaven.

Its a remarkable story that's been the subject of a best-selling book, Alex suffered injuries so severe that his head was completed detached from his spine - an injury that should have killed him. While in a two-month coma following the accident Alex recalls not only seeing vivid details of the scene of the crash from above but also going to heaven and meeting Jesus.

"The story of Alex Malarkey, The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven, has not only made the New York Times’ best seller list, but has attracted interest from people around the world, particularly in Australia."

Heaven dosn't exist so this topic is pointless.

I know, we're smarter. At least, our brains are. The world you're perceiving now is a simulation put together by your brain based on the information gathered by your senses. Our brains are so good at doing this it can do it while we're asleep and using it's own information, either created or mined from our subconscious. Now I don't say to anyone that their experiences didn't happen or that they're wrong, because they're subjective. All I say to stories like this is consider if the person in question was a Hindu or a Muslim. Would they see Christ and the King... [More]

I've read a number of accounts of OBE's over the years, some of them coming from people from other faiths. As I recall, many do report seeing holy figures from their particular faith. Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Shiva, etc. As to OBE's I don't have any particular thoughts about them one way or another. I just find myself fascinated by them.

Well how does a believer account for their experiences? Are they somehow less real than theirs? I think it's a fascinating subject too, because it suggests that our subconscious mind knows to use religious figures and symbolism in order to reach us. Take every story of drug users and alcoholics who finally gave up their habits because they were touched by Christ. Most people know that those are destructive things, and your subconscious definitely knows it, but we can quite easily ignore that voice of reason. What then, if the subconscious manifests itself to you as a religious figure i... [More]

Okay, so we need to find this little bugger, grab him, and ship him off to the nearest convenient top-secret government facility so they can conduct their experiments, and tell us exactly where "Heaven" is and how to get there.

For those who would be skeptical, keep in mind that we cannot claim to be authority on subject. You have not experienced the same thing, but that does not prove it to false no more than not seeing quarks disproves their existance. To refute the claim or it's possibility, there is the need to provide empirical evidence. Otherwise, we should remain open-minded at the very least.
