Ok, so most people have heard of someone having a near death experience. It's like, something life threatening happened (i.e. surgery, getting shot, etc.) and then they see the proverbial light... Now this is supposedly heaven. Has anyone had a near death experience where they see hell? Like fire and such. Have there been any reports of this?

And before there are any comments, I am a Christian and damn proud of it. I don't care if this may offend someone, as I have never been one for political correctness.

Actually, what happens is that your brain releases heavy doses of DMT, which account for those experiences. It seems you've also never been one to research this, and decided to ask the pit. :/

I once accidently stepped on a searchbar, and it went right through my foot, it was lying buried in the sand on the beach, never being used.

Yes, it should be an. I just coped TS last lines and replaced the word. And it's "I'm" not "Im".

And no, it's the other way around.

Didn't read all of OP, thought you had wrote that out and it just didn't seem like your usual kind of response.

There have been several instances where I would have died if I had done something slightly different, but I never really notice...
#13
All the 'near death' experiences are just that. 'Near' death. You havn't died, the reports of people being brain dead and seeing lights etc is more accurately describing things they saw AS the brain was dying and not when they'd died because amazingly enough, when the brain has shut down you don't think about much.

Keep in mind you're usually in surgery and thus on a load of drugs aswell as having a brain starved of oxygen. Pretty trippy but theres nothing supernatural about it.

oh yeah, edit: and i'm an atheist and damn proud of it and i don't care if logical thinking offends you.

So nobody cares that the pineal gland secretes DMT when you're near-death, dead, or when you're asleep?
Well, I'll go back to fapping then.

I'm quite sure 90% of my "near death experiences" happened when I was too drunk to actually remember them. Though I do remember ruining a carpet once. It was only $20, and I paid it back with a 30 pack of Budweiser.

No, they deal with two completely different things. Atheism is a belief, comparable to any religious belief. Agnosticism is just not being an idiot, and acknowledging that you can't possibly know for sure. You can be both, or religious and Agnostic.

Atheism is not a belief, it is the lack of a belief in a deity/deities.

i looked into all this after watching the film ghost.
seriously, it's a load of rubbish. people only see what they want to see and people from other religions see things relating to their own specific religions.

yes, there are people who have "witnessed" hell. it's all the usual "fire, brimestone" etc. and it tends to be atheists who witness this. they even get converted, which is a cheap way to start believing in relgion.

the whole thing with nde's is that it seems to be a reaction from the brain causing a lot of the stuff to happen (specifically the white light and tunnel). some of it could be due to the drugs people are taking and so on. it might be true, with an outside chance, and no one can really ever know, but the truth is to not waste your time on something that may or may not be right AND doesn't affect your life in any way otherwise.

but to answer you question more specifically, there's something called 13? minutes in hell or something. don't bother with it. some guy has a "vision" from what's not even a real nde and goes to hell in what's essentially a dream. he was a christian beforehand and conveniently had an experience that allowed him to write a book and milk it for all the money it's worth. the only real thing it has going for it is the fact that he supposedly managed to draw a picture of some creature similar to another guy that had the same experience.

but i read something about how a doctor witnessed a lot of patients having nde's and the majority of them had woken up as if they'd just come back from hell (i.e. their nde was based in hell). he was truely petrified. and there is a famous u.s. politician had an nde based in hell who is a converted christian.

I am an atheist and I am not trying to troll. This is a true story. When I was hit by a car I saw a glowing light with a man walking towards me. As he got closer I realized he was my dead grandpa. He asked if I accepted the God as my lord and savior and I told him no. He told me that he always expected me to become a heretic, but he never knew I would go so far as to turn down heaven. I told him I am not turning down heaven until I die. Not long after that I woke up in the hospital to find I was out for about 3 days. For some people this would cause an Epiphany but to me I just think it goes to show what our minds are capable of.

I like how people take this into religious account... I was just wondering if anyone had seen fire or something when they almost died... I didn't ask for an explanation to what near-death experiences are caused by. Whether that may be a natural hormone in our body or some sort of divine intervention. I personally know a guy who had to have both of his lungs replaced due to drug abuse. He was an atheist and he said he died 3 times on the table, or so the doctors told him. The first two times, he said he heard a voice telling him everything would be alright, but the third time, he saw the light and said he was prepared to go.

I drank a bottle of vodka one evening. Woke up next morning covered in bruises, cuts, mud and vomit. Not a 'near' death experience, but it could well have been death if I were more unlucky.

WHen I was 2 my nose basically shut down, so I had to get surgery. Then about two hours before the procedure was supposed to start, my ______ (whichever passage way you take oxygen to tour lungs from) was clogged with mucus that was pushed down from my nose and I couldn't breathe. They quickly had to do some emergency surgery but I made it.

Two years ago (I was 28) I had a subarachnoid hemmorage, aka a brain aneurysm which burst, and bled several CC's into my brain. I should have died however for some reason I didn't. I experienced an incredible amount of pain but I didn't see any lights or heard any voices. I'm also a christian and proud of it, but near-death doesn't mean crap.
