Results for - Near Death Experiences: To believe or not to believe

1,995 voters participated in this survey
Most of the near death experiences, that I have heard and know of, are with people that were under anesthesia, a medicinal drug, or street/illegal drugs. I am listening to a new source of religious education, from a religious speaker, whose story includes being clinically dead for 7 minutes along with a near death experience. I want to believe him, but I am not sure of anyone's claims regarding these ND experiences. Do you believe that they happen to people?

2. One explanation that was offered (very reduced for simplicity) was that the brain's neurons were firing explaining the white light and one's thoughts contributed to the experience. If you have an opinion on ND experiences, what do you think?

I lean towards believing that they happen to people
