If you missed last week’s portion of “Is Heaven For Real?” No worries! Be sure to turn your radios, computers and smart phones up this Monday,April 16 at 2PT/5ET, as Cogee dives into part 2! Featuring special guest, author and speaker, Richard Carrier. As a professional historian, published philosopher, and prominent defender of the American freethought movement, Dr. Carrier has appeared across the country and on national television defending sound historical methods and the ethical worldview of secular naturalism. His books and articles have also received international attention. He holds a Ph.D. from Columbia University in ancient history, specializing in the intellectual history of Greece and Rome, particularly ancient philosophy, religion, and science, with emphasis on the origins of Christianity and the use and progress of science under the Roman empire. He is best known as the author of Sense and Goodness without God, Not the Impossible Faith, and Why I Am Not a Christian, and a major contributor to The Empty Tomb, The Christian Delusion, The End of Christianity, and Sources of the Jesus Tradition, as well as writer and editor-in-chief (now emeritus) for the Secular Web, and for his copious work in history and philosophy online and in print. His latest book is Proving History: Bayes’s Theorem and the Quest for the Historical Jesus. He is currently working on his next books, On the Historicity of Jesus Christ, The Scientist in the Early Roman Empire, and Science Education in the Early Roman Empire. Richard is going to be talking to us about the scientific research that has been done on near death experiences and how he thinks they are created by the brain trying to make sense of the confused state it’s in.
Laura will be joining in the conversation with her near death experiences as well as her hospice work and lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming is a state that is different from waking reality, dreaming, and the NDE. Her compassion in helping others cross to the other side is really remarkable. It is also a trademark of the NDE where experiences usually switch to a life work of compassion.
Back with us again from last week is Kevin Benton, www.KevinBentonMinistries.com, sharing a more in depth personal account of his near death experience and trip to what some may call “Hell.” You don’t want to miss this story!
Theologians can debate all they want, but radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long (nderf.org) says if you look at the scientific evidence, the answer is unequivocally yes. There is life after death. Drawing on a decade’s worth of research on near-death experiences — work that includes cataloging the stories of some 1,600 people who have gone through them — he makes the case for that controversial conclusion in a new book, Evidence of the Afterlife. In the book, Long contends his study shows that accounts of near-death experiences play out remarkably similarly among the people who have had them, crossing age and cultural boundaries to such a degree that they can’t be chalked up simply to everyone having seen the same Hollywood movie. Jody Long is an attorney and has worked in the areas of family, health care, business, and intellectual property law. Jody has several decades of experience researching paranormal and related phenomena. She is on the Board of Directors for Seattle Friends of IANDS group and a member of IANDS. Jody is the webmaster of NDERF (NDE Research Foundation) which has the largest selection of published accounts of near-death experiences in the world. Their website is read by a multitude of people all around the world in several languages. Their website is the only NDE website that uses NDE submissions in important research projects.
