NDEs & The Afterlife

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

NDEs & The Afterlife

Show Archive
Date: Friday - July 1, 2011
Host: George Noory
Guests: Open Lines, Jeffrey Long

In the first half, George Noory welcomed researcher Dr. Jeffrey Long for a discussion on near-death experiences (NDEs) and how they may provide proof of the existence of an afterlife. "Virtually all the people that have a near death experience are absolutely fully unconscious and most clinically dead at the time they have their experience, with no spontaneous heart beat or respiration," explained Long, who has researched some 2,000 NDEs. Despite their dire medical state, patients who come back report having had crystal clear consciousness, heightened senses, and out-of-body experiences that often involve accurate descriptions of their own resuscitations, he said. Many also recall being met by their deceased loved ones, Long added, noting that almost never do they encounter living people in their NDEs.

It is impossible to predict who will have an NDE or what the content of the experience will be, Long continued. About 15% of near death experiencers have a life review that teaches them a positive lesson on how their actions affect other people, he revealed. According to Long, it actually takes about seven years for changes to fully manifest in the experiencer. They tend to become happier people, with an increased belief in God and the afterlife, less fear of death, a decreased value of materialistic things, and a stronger value on loving relationships, he explained. Some even develop increased psychic abilities, he added. Long believes the near death experience itself, which many cannot even describe with words, is the strongest evidence that there is a "wonderful afterlife for each and every one of us."

The remainder of the show was devoted to Open Lines. The final half-hour featured a replay of part of George's 5/18/09 interview with world renowned medium James Van Praagh.
