so now you believe in any claim made by anyone without requiring any evidence at all. We know what causes the hallucinations often called NDEs, it's all very basic neurology actually, very basic, as in high school level.
Then why do so many of these NDEs involve going to Heaven? Why don't more people report having hallucinations that they traveled to say Egypt or China or to the Moon?

I believe all souls automatically go to Heaven after the moment of death. If/when their bodies are medically revived then their soul is sent back to their body.

You say NDEs, but I say NDEs are really brief experiences of the afterlife.

of course it's wild guessing...but if science wildly guesses to support a preconceived theory, it is more than likely accepted as fact.

I had experienced NDE experience. I don't care if I was hallucinating the last few seconds of it but I lived because of the image I saw in my head. I survived the accident. You really have no understanding how the mind can do wonders sometimes.

But they have been able to extract DNA samples from their remains. Small amounts of DNA that Neanderthal had but Heidelbergensis did not have, which has been concluded by examining the DNA of African peoples, is observable in some European groups.

It would be wrong to ever assume that one species of "proto-human" ever just totally killed off and replaced another group. The odds are that, at least in the early phases of separation, cross breeding occurred. Adaptations that were not advantageous to the new species would slowly work their way out of the gene pool.

Where do you think the saying "When in Rome...do as...the Romans do" originates from?(too lazy to look it up, so just pose the question just for the heck of it)
DO you think it means when in Rome, speak the Origin-al language of, or what you're trying to say might not be understood?
Kind of like speaking English, in England....rather than kindergarten sandbox pig-latin, and trying to pass it off as English, rather than what it REALLY is....
I don't have the slightest clue what you're trying to say.

And I think that saying means what it says.

No, you survived because medical science has advanced to a point in which we can prevent many untimely deaths. Or you were dreaming.

how do you account for a mother somehow knowing that her child was just injured even though her child may be hundreds of miles away?
Because people don't bother remembering or reporting the times that they had a bad feeling about a loved one and it turned out to be without merit.

That sounds valid or is it the power of persuasion?

They make books that explain a lot of those human problems as well.
Sometimes the Bible has some beautiful verses that help people too, and if it helps people (rtaher than harms them)....
What's "sooooooooooooo terribly baduh about that?
Nothing, that's right, nothing.
(hint: it's the internally UGLY and rather warped ones that would even begin to want to trash such for others--vile, empty shells that they act like then)
Sure, if a consenting adult enjoys the bible, I don't see why he shouldn't be able to go hog wild with it. The problem is, it's hard to separate the good from the bad with religion, with strong belief can come fulfillment, but often accompying that strong belief are certain unsavory traits - rigidness, closed mindedness, irrational adherence to "the traditional ways," etc. I only have a problem with people who have trouble separating their myths from the world around them, like people who insist on "teaching the controversy." I also don't like children being indoctrinated into any religion.
