  1. One time I was up over 48 hours. I went to sleep then not long after I was aware of being in a very dark place with this point of light in the distance. Out of wonderment at what this light was I asked it "Is that you God" even though I did not believe in Gods, but it made sense at the time. The light twinkled to my query at which point I woke up. While awake I felt this overwhelming sense of joy, and I wanted to go outside. While outside everything had a shimmering sheen like aura to it. Most of all everything good, or bad in the world made sense as if I was privy to knowledge. Then I began to realise I was only drugged in some way in that it was just a mechanism in my mind. I realised the light was just a sunbeam coming through the window hitting my eyelids which my dreamstate misinterpreted. I since studied neurology, and what I went through was a surge of Dopamine from my altered state of sleep deprivation. I then found out through studying ancient history that neurochemistry is responsible for many reports of NDE, and even the Holy Ghost.

  2. Btw: The Ex-Atheist said he was a "True Atheist", and that's how you know his experience has extra credence. Edit: Silly me had to add "Ex-".

  4. Interesting, not sure I would want to try it. I wish he was working with someone to guide him. Not sure this is an NDE experience. The studies have pretty much showed that no one explanation can explain the NDE. It seems to be universal, and be around forever. Peace Mark

  6. “Towards the end of the Second World War, when I was sixteen years old, I was taken out of school and forced into the army. After a brief period of training at a base in Wüzburg, I arrived at the front, which by that time had already crossed the Rhine into Germany. There were well over a hundred in my company, all of whom were very young. One evening the company commander sent me with a message to battalion headquarters. I wandered all night long through destroyed, burning villages and farms, and when in the morning I returned to my company I found only the dead, nothing but dead, overrun by a combined bomber and tank assault. I could see only dead and empty faces, where the day before I had shared childhood fears and youthful laughter. I remember nothing but a wordless cry. Thus I see myself to this very day, and behind this memory all my childhood dreams crumble away.” ― Johann Baptist Metz, A Passion for God: The Mystical-Political Dimension of Christianity

  9. I was sitting next to the Oak Tree, the one I had chosen and intended to bleed out on... I had the knife pressed to the artery in my neck and was about to push it through, ending my life, when the following realization softly settled in my awareness and I put the knife away and walked home. "One constant in the universe is change. Everything is always shifting and changing." followed by this... "Why make a permanent decision, while in a temporary emotion?" I walked home and am still here to write this 30 years later... peace and healing to all who may read this...

  10. When you say so many others and most people, how do you know this? What kind of environmental are you seeing this happen ? Where it is happening is important, as the person could be being bullied. Or they could be shy. Unless you follow that person around and see them in other places around other people, you can not know how they get on with everyone. More info needed please.

  11. How cute! What a cute picture, Waspie Dwarf. I used to have a pet cockatiel. Cockatiels aren't much bigger than parakeets. For most of my life, I've thought little birds, such as cockatiels and parakeets, are so cute and full of the dickens.

  14. As one who grew up being taught this nonsense I applaud the satire of the white jewish natives and their struggles against the tyrannical brown jewish natives. I imagine Laman and Lemual, the original gangsta natives who got cursed by god with their browness would spill their mana juice from the cup to the ground for their fallen comrades.

  15. Bendy, interesting blog. Add to: Mindfulness is (not to be mislead with the idea that mindfulness is easy)) the acceptance of what is and navigating from there. Using your example of cleaning a mirror (an offer of two cents) this is the practice of being present in the moment with whatever arises it would be labeled mindful meditation. One isn’t trying to control anything, but to allow things to arise, then pass for example, if one is disgusted emotionally and mentally with the task at hand one would allow the feelings and thoughts to arise and then let them pass, there are many anchors to accomplish this, one isn’t seeking to change anything, but to accept and let go. The point is to cultivate compassion the more one does this with themselves it will begin to reflect in their own lives and behaviors.

So as an atheist if I’m expected to believe in bible Jesus as real than bible Jesus believers is it to much to ask you to believe in Hindi gods?

  17. Atheist shocked by NDE. They always are. In fact, solid believers report serious shock and amazement. It's an experience beyond words, destined to be paradigm shifting for a creature with such limited perceptual modeling apparatus of waking consciousness.

  18. There was the case of a woman named Pam Reynolds who was having brain surgery to prevent an aneurism. She claimed to identify an instrument the doctor had while under anesthesia that looked like an electric toothbrush. Her doctor showed the instrument and he called it a Miter drill that's used for drilling in the skull. It did look similar to an electric toothbrush. She claimed to be out of her body when she saw it. Pam Reynolds case - Wikipedia

  19. I met a few prisoners who were first timers and honestly regretted their actions. Most times faith wasn't involved in their regrets but most convicts who find faith lose it upon release and faith based rehabilitation has shown high recidivism rates. As a Quaker, I'm with John Calvin on human nature and genetics has shown his opinion was close to true. Your wired from birth to be a good or bad person and I gave up counseling cons. I do respect you for your efforts though.

  20. Why is this not a story about a man in adultery? That is the old roman twist on religion isn't it? Men can do what they want, but women are judged for all manner of things that are often not even in their control.

  21. From anecdotal evidence, I believe that pets survive for a time after physical death, depending on how much love (energy) they are given beforehand. It's very different for humans. "God" is the place we leave when we are born, and where we return to when we die. Some of us are reincarnated, but others don't need to be.

  24. To sin means to miss the mark. Is there any surprise that we are in the shape we are in? In any case, I believe that one needs to judge any group, religion, etc, on the best, not the worst. What mars a masterpiece, stands out over the beauty in the background. Yes we are in dire straits. The book of revelation, as hard as it is to understand, seems to point that out pretty clearly. Yet, we live in hope, and continue on our way. Peace Mark

  25. @Manwon Lender It was really something. Normally I just dump the chicken bones out on the sidewalk and I don’t hear a thing. But that plastic container getting pushed around on the pavement started grating on my nerves. I won’t do that again! Lol

  30. People don't believe it when we explain how we can "control" pain perception with the mind I dont have such an adverse reaction to opioids, but i don't like the concept of them, or the potential for addiction so i also try to use mental disciplines to manage severe pain

  31. There are situations in my past that bother me, but weren't traumatic that bring strong emotions to the surface. Sometimes it is the helpless feeling of being in a situation I had no control over. PTSD can affect people in different ways, too. I get flashes back of situations in my past and get emotional. We don't always remember or associate specific situations with our present mental health, but, sometimes they are more connected than we think.

  36. It was meant as sarcasm. The Jehovah's Witnesses have a century of bad End Times predictions. They predicted it in 1917, 1925. 1975, 1986, 2000, and 2012.

  37. Because they all stem from a "Q" source and Mark (which was also written 75 years after the fact) except for John. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q_source#:~:text=The Q source (also called,in the Gospel of Mark. Oh, yeah. The Massacre of Innocents never happened and the Census of Quirinius sort of happened but at a much later date and nobody had to go to their place of birth. Here's your only historical Jesus. He wasn't crucified. He was flattened with a rock. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_ben_Ananias

  38. You do realize that Matthew was not written by Matthew but by another fellow about 100 years after Jesus died and then re-edited twice. It also has no historicity whatsoever.

  42. I think that people who can't get along with others all have one thing in common. They have never learned the skills needed too so they fell like an outsider no matter where or who they are with. Which causes them to be resentful because they don't fit in. Everyone needs and want other human companionship, except those individuals who are mentally ill and out of touch with reality. So I beleive that people who fall into the category of this blog need help and should not be abandoned out of hand. Because their problem is not what they wish would occur, it's actually a problem with the manner in which they were taught and treated while they were growing in their homes. This in my opinion is a problem that is inherited from either both or one of their parents. So keeping in mind that all people seek others For companionship, these people will respond over time to kindness they not use to receiving. This may take time but it can also be a very rewarding experience for the person who makes the effort to help. Peace
