Is There Life After Death?

Is There Life After Death?

From: Time Magazine

A snippet:

Is there life after death? Theologians can debate all they want, but radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long argues that if you look at the scientific evidence, the answer is unequivocally yes.



Yes. Buddhists, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Hindus, Theosophists and several other philosophical entities view life after death as a pretty common thing. Except Chistianity, as far as we know.

Since most of what we know about life after death is solely based on stories told by those who came back to life after a traumatic experience, this writer included, it is difficult to assess and study the phenomenon at some university.

Isn't it sobering to learn that mainstream "scientists" are slowly but surely cottoning on to the idea that, hey, it is possible...

Since this is a highly controversial subject and depending on your philosophical beliefs, blasphemous, more research and other studies are necessary to unravel the knot of mysteries surrounding Life.

We are well aware that people are okay with their canonical religious texts and take them to the letter. Rarely do people find time to research into religious matters and depend instead on "theologians" to interpret the texts for them. And that is law. No problem, we say, for Life demands this emotional investment. How can you argue with Faith?
