The Problem with Near Death Experiences

NDE stories. There’s just one problem with them.

I don’t ask white people what it’s like to be black.

I don’t ask a men what it’s like to be a woman.

And I don’t ask living people what it’s like to be dead.

*

More to the point: I don’t ask living people who sell highly profitable books about their four-year-old son visiting heaven and seeing rainbow coloured horses and a blue-eyed Jesus. The book, naturally, is written by Profitable Dad.

Unbelievable. The people who most strongly believe in heaven and hell are usually the people who are most likely to get sent to hell if their doctrines are correct.
