A SCIENTIST’S CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE
Thousands of people
have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued
that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of
those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Alexander
knew that NDEs feel real, but are simply fantasies produced
by brains under extreme stress.
Then, Dr. Alexander’s
own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the
brain that controls thought and emotion—and in essence makes
us human—shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a
coma. Then, as his doctors considered stopping treatment,
Alexander’s eyes popped open. He had come back.
Alexander’s recovery is a medical miracle. But the
real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay
in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and
encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest
realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke
with, the Divine source of the universe itself.
Alexander’s story is not a fantasy. Before he
underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge
of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul.
Today Alexander is a doctor who believes that true health
can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul
are real and that death is not the end of personal existence
but only a transition.
This story would be remarkable
no matter who it happened to. That it happened to Dr.
Alexander makes it revolutionary. No scientist or person of
faith will be able to ignore it. Reading it will change your
