What is the best evidence that the afterlife is real? Does it come from psychic mediums, from past life memories, from near death experiences…..or somewhere else?
Stafford Betty is the Professor of religious studies, California State University in Bakersfield. He’s also an accomplished author who has written some GREAT books on the very best evidence for life after death. (and contrary to his religious studies moniker, his conclusions on the afterlife are not religious, but instead…..purely spiritual in the best sense of the word
Check out his recent article on the Huffington Post, earlier this week below.
2. What conclusions have you drawn? And what are they based on?
The evidence that my colleagues and I study and analyze is not based on religious doctrine, but on scientific and philosophical analysis of the evidence, which is almost entirely secular in nature. This evidence falls under nine headings: deathbed visions, the near-death experience, apparitions or ghosts, poltergeist phenomena, spirit communication through mediums, spirit attachment, reincarnational memories by very young children, spirit communication using electronic instruments, and unaccountable clarity by advanced Alzheimer’s victims just before death. Most afterlife researchers who are aware of this information are strong believers in survival of death. They rightly see that the brain is not the originator of consciousness, but the organ that implements it. My latest book shows why we think this way.
