It was surely evident that you were trying to mess with her. Humans can read subtle body language. Evidently you are clueless to this natural way of most all animals. Pick up a book on body language. It may change your life.  (Yesterday | post #136692)

Correction, obviously it was supposed to be "umpire" not empire. Hey Curious, care to tell us how human life does not need a heart?  (Yesterday | post #136691)

So are you prepared to defend his claim of Stephen Hawking being dead? You are no empire, liar.  (Yesterday | post #136688)

Looks like number twelve and thirteen are applicable in our guy with the NDE tale. I am sure he has no books that dispute his preconceived beliefs, so this information is all surely very new to him. Strange, if I had some experience like this, I would read everything I could get my hands on about it. But when it comes to believers, they just accept things as is. Hawking in alive.  (Yesterday | post #136687)

Wait, did you just say you could not recall this fantastical story until you were under a sort of hypnosis, you call meditation? Wow, you really should pick up a book on how the mind can become very vulnerable under hypnosis. Seems like all these NDE's all have so many flaws. Tell me why I should accept someone's story with zero evidence again?  (Yesterday | post #136684)

Did your doctor tell you that the oxygen given to you would not need your heart to pump the oxygen filled blood to your brain? Because during heart transplants, an artificial heart pump is used to keep this process going. I am no expert, but clearly neither are you, so when you claim in some absolute manner that an oxygen mask kept your brain supplied with all the oxygen it needed, I am going to call you out.  (Yesterday | post #136680)

Supernatural=magic . I find it amusing when believers get angry about homosexuality and say it is unnatural. Should we call it supernatural?  (Yesterday | post #136678)

You were defending a lie. And why did you not look it up when the lie was brought to your attention the first time? You just kept defending the lie without investigation. I feel as if this is your main problem. I have no idea what you feel is "news". You cited no specific show or channel. Just vague stories, so typical of those who are repeating falsehoods.  (Yesterday | post #136677)

Ever read a book about NDE's that was not on your side? You ask a lot of questions, so I just wonder why you have not heard the standard answers of science. So I do question what you are reading.  (Yesterday | post #136676)

Maybe energy always existed. Energy has always been on planet earth. So it seems reasonable to assume life got the spark of energy from what is on earth. Globs can have life. Globs can evolve.  (Friday | post #136651)

Then you were not near death. Maybe explain just what happened to you physically. What makes you think you were near death or dying?  (Friday | post #136650)

I did not discount there stories completely. I just do not think they are what they think they were. I believe their perception is flawed. If you wish to believe there is more, fine, but calling me closed minded for not accepting a claim that is devoid of real evidence is not fine. Before science explained lightning and thunder it was not closed minded to think it was natural. You are simply putting the answer of magic in gaps of knowledge. It is what all superstitions do.  (Friday | post #136649)

So when you condemn my book learning, you do it with hypocrisy. Got any science books?  (Friday | post #136648)
