And they'd still be jumping to conclusions. Even if we stipulate to an afterlife, how would "proof" of heaven not be identical to proof of no heaven? Maybe it's "proof" Valhalla or Olympus. Or of cerebral ischemia in a watershed area. http://legalmedicalexhibits.com/60017-watersh...
The Bible says that it's proof of heaven, and I'm sticking to it. If any Norse Valhalla or Greek Olympus DID exist then the religions associated with them would be alive and well today, as in THRIVING (as in the Christian faith). But, even though other religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam are also widespread, there can only be ONE that is the TRUE PATH to GOD. I believe it is the Christian faith. By the way, my older sister died of an ischemic stroke in September 2004. GOD (as in JEHOVAH, not ODIN or ZEUS) bless her soul.

I see my own philosophies as superior and I see reality is I control it all and the only response you can ever give to me is one that I anticipated and allowed to happen in the first place.. because I discovered fundamental truths that enable it to be so and now I am supreme metric ruler of all existence in this universe... maybe if you escape now and enter another universe... but I control this one now I"m sorry..`

Yet, you are not the majority of the religious community, not by far, just in the US.

First, establish these claims as being at least reasonable likely. And please include a credible account of somebody who never heard of the Christian heaven or hell that claimed to see them.
I guess that you can't conceive of any naturalistic explanation for people getting tunnel vision in near death circumstances. I can, but I'm trained in that. You'd have to know a little about the neuroanatomy and vasculature of the visual pathway. Check it: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons...
Notice that the fibers coming out of the backs of the eyeballs from the retina form the two optic nerves. As these fibers approach the neural bridge called the optic chiasm, only the ones indicated in blue enter thechiasm and cross over to the other side. Notice that these fibers originated in the part of the retina closest to the nose - the nasal retina - and are oriented to pick up light from the lest and right peripheral fields of vision.
By contrast, the fibers from the temple side of each retina see the center of the field of vision, and do not enter the chiasm or cross over.
Now, lets look at the cerebral blood supply around the optic chism at http://what-when-how.com/wp-content/uploads/2... You can see that there is no midline blood supply at the level of the chiasm as there is on the pons below it. The chiasm is supplied by the two posterior communicating arteries on either side of it, making the central part of the chiasm furthest from the blood source, and most sensitive to hypoxemia (low blood oxygen levels) and hypotension (low blood pressure and poor perfusion).
So, poor perfusion of the chiasm leads to loss of peripheral vision through ischemia of the crossing fibers there. That very well may be why tunnel vision ensues.
The natural is fascinating, isn't it? Now you know.
Thanks for the science lesson. But I have a question for you: WHO designed it that way?? INTELLIGENCE came from the INTELLIGENCE before it, NOT INTELLIGENCE from NOTHING (abiogenesis is impossible), as evolution would have you believe.

church is fcking boring.. I prayed to God and asked him to take it out of his will..

and then some guy came up on the radio talking about it was the end of the church age and I believed it was the answer to my prayer because it was so suddenly and I was then satisfied..

Interestingly, Jesus was NOT the MAJORITY. There were SCORES of them, and only ONE of him. But HE was (and still is) the RIGHT ONE!! He was a very lonely man on that cross, but hey, he certainly is reaping the rewards now!! COME, LORD JESUS!!

Read it again, Buttercup.
I don't condone arson, but I do understand why people want your churches gone. You make it too tempting. They generate so much hatred, strife, division, scapegoating, guilt and misery.
Even Jehovah got into the act. Touchdown Jesus, a graven image in Monroe, OH, went up in flames after being stricken by lightning. It was quite a spectacle. As soon as you see him, you'll know why they called him TDJ: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =nI1Yu2IgQpYXX&feature=rel ated
Incidentally, the adult bookstore right across the street was spared.
So Jesus is alive, he did not approve of that statue did he? Be afraid atheists. The begining of wisdom.

So then your first assertion was a flat out lie.
