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 try and live my life as a Christian, which is supposed to be "All by Faith", but I'm going to tell you, when I read stories such as this( and believe me, there are many just like his)It makes my days that much more "lighter". I resent just a little less,I hate just a little less, I love a lot more. To all you "scientific atheist" out there. Better think a little harder before sending out your comments of evolution & science. A lot harder. Humans aren't as smart as we think we are. I know, we're smarter. At least, our brains are. The world you're perceiving now is a simulation put togethe... [More]

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 Kingdom of God, or would they see Krishna or Mohammed? 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 ... [More]

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 s... [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.
