Yes-- the nearly-dead DO report strange "happenings".

Exactly as do people who experience "waking dreams".

The two are identical processes, in fact.

More to the point?

If a Genuine Christian™ experiences a nearly-dead condition, and recovers? He or she often reports images similar to the fantasies he or she was taught as a child: christianistic imagery.

If a Genuine Muslim™ experiences a nearly-dead condition, and recovers? He or she often reports images similar to the fantasies he or she was taught as a child: islamic imagery.

If a Genuine Jew™ experiences a nearly-dead condition, and recovers? He or she often reports images similar to the fantasies he or she was taught as a child: strongly semitic imagery.

If a pagan/wiccian experiences a nearly-dead condition, and recovers? He or she often reports images similar to the fantasies he or she was taught as a child: strongly pagan imagery.

Do you see a trend here?

Here you go, a smattering of bible-endorsed slavery:

******

The following passage shows that slaves are clearly property to be bought and sold like livestock.

However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.(Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

******

The following passage describes how the Hebrew slaves are to be treated.

If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare,'I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.' If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever.(Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)

Notice how they can get a male Hebrew slave to become a permanent slave by keeping his wife and children hostage until he says he wants to become a permanent slave. What kind of family values are these?

******

The following passage describes the sickening practice of sex slavery. How can anyone think it is moral to sell your own daughter as a sex slave?

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

NEW TESTAMENT EXAMPLES--INCLUDING JESUS ENDORSEMENTS OF SLAVERY:

******

You would think that Jesus and the New Testament would have a different view of slavery, but slavery is still approved of in the New Testament, as the following passages show.

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ.(Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.(1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

******

In the following parable, Jesus clearly approves of beating slaves even if they didn't know they were doing anything wrong.

The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it. "But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given." (Luke 12:47-48 NLT)

Yep.

The human brain is subject to semi-conscious hallucinations, when deprived of oxygen.

And these hallucinations are all too often, of imagery from the person's own childhood or of recent experiences.

The newly resurrected witnessed conversations outside of the operating room ...or, because they were above their bodies they could see things, as a bed ridden patient would have been impossible ..

The Doctor didn't seem to want to elaborate ...but, he insinuated that those resurrected from suicide ..don't enjoy their out of body experience ..

And, the difficulty is just like dreams (most) people will forget the details of what they experienced ...and, he isn't really allowed to interview someone ..in such a precarious position ...

If someone having an out of body experience , can repeat a conversion others were having in the hallway , or describe what on top of a shelf , while they're bed ridden ...

..Atheists should start to worry ..

Indeed. It's why your religion is 100% evil: it promotes slavery even now!

Slavery is demeaning to sentient beings--- it diminishes the slave AND THE MASTER TOO.

The very fact that you worship a god you think is a SLAVE MASTER?

Is quite sad.

Grow up! This is 2013-- and slavery is no longer acceptable.

So you freely admit that you consider your god, "the enemy"?

That kinda makes sense... the god you worship does prefer torturing people forever, than anything else.

Just judging by the numbers, of course... in that your bible says 90%(or so) of humanity will get torture in the end...
