Doctor recalls 'visiting heaven' during NDE

A doctor who almost drowned remembers interacting with spirits and being warned about her son's death.
Sixteen years ago orthopedic spinal surgeon Dr. Mary Neal was involved in a kayaking accident that almost took her life, but it was what she experienced while doctors battled to save her that would remain the most memorable and profound part of her ordeal.

Her near-death experience began when she awoke to find herself walking towards a large domed structure situated in a landscape of intense beauty and serenity. Two spirits greeted her outside and expressed how happy they were that she had arrived.

"They had physical form," she said. "They had heads, arms, legs and were wearing sort of robes."
The spirits went on to explain that it was not yet her time and that she had to go back. They also told her something that would haunt her for years to come - that her oldest son would die in the future.

"They didn't tell me the date or the time, but it was very clear that would be happening," she said.

Dr. Neal went on to make a full recovery however the warning she had received during her experience came to pass ten years later when her son was killed in an automobile accident.

"I don't pretend to have all the answers," she said. "My primary mandate was to return and share my story because my story is comforting and reassuring and inspires other people to really look at their own lives and find God working in their own lives."

He does, but it's as bland and boring as the universe in which he lives. This one is much more fun. Seriously? All one has to do is Google "top scientific discoveries of the past decade" to see how every day science continues to broaden our understanding of the natual universe. Is ancient superstition and woo really more exciting than that in your world?

Yes, doctors can suffer from loss of oxygen to the brain. Lol yes, but usually you're severely mentally handicapped or very rarely likely to recover. It only takes 10 to 15 minutes of lack of oxygen to the brain and then you're either extremely mentally slow (if you recover with having lots of dead brain cells) or you're completely brain dead. It's remarkable this women survived her drowning and have the brain capacity to go on to be a doctor. And that seems to happen in various cases when some people's brains shut down completely without oxygen, but then they come back from being brain dead w... [More]

"The spirits went on to explain that it was not yet her time and that she had to go back. They also told her something that would haunt her for years to come - that her oldest son would die in the future." Why in the world would they tell her this? Why would they feel that she needed to know this, ahead of time ?!?

All this teaches us is that when in a dear-deatg state, our brain wildly hallucinates in a remeberable way. It does not prove afterlife, or god(s), or anything beyond our lack of understanding of the actual threshold between life and death.

All this teaches us is that when in a dear-deatg state, our brain wildly hallucinates in a remeberable way. It does not prove afterlife, or god(s), or anything beyond our lack of understanding of the actual threshold between life and death. Actually it teaches us nothing of the kind. Firstly, we don't know that it is a hallucination. You prefer to believe that it is. Secondly, we have only hypotheses concerning what NDE's are. To the people that have them, they seem to be convinced they are genuine spiritual events. We that have not had them cannot say with any precision what the NDE actually ... [More]

Were you hallucinating while you wrote this. Maybe, but it isn't provable

How did you measure that? Ok, you have faith to believe so. You're right, he could just be bat **** crazy and making the whole thing up. But it is a scientific fact that oxygen deprivation to the brain brings about feelings of euphoria and hallucinations.
