Is there a list of the most convincing articles and write ups offering scientific proof of heaven? For various reasons I have been interested in amassing a collection of as much info as possible about attempts to proof, on a scientific level of some sort, that heaven exists and that there is an afterlife of sorts?
Quantum theory is fascinating and supports many spiritual ideas.
G_d must be smiling.
The conclusion seems to be a leap. It implies pantheism by saying we ‘return to the universe in bloom’. There appears to be no reason to think this.
What this does point towards is the independence and power of the mind (read: soul). It is much more than just electrical signals passing through the brain matter.
And if minds can be independent from physical reality, then God is far from impossibility as this man’s colleagues and the majority of commenters on the article no doubt like to believe
It’s an interesting theory but I’m not seeing any actual evidence for it.
I believe in the afterlife but this is science, where is the empirical evidence for this theory?
You don’t need quantum physics to prove that there is a heaven and a hell and that we were created by God. A few hours reading the Bible is all they need.
And so forth, throughout the Gospels, and spoke of Heaven with the kind of familiarity one might have today of one's own livingroom.
So, those reports depend much on the credibility of the witnesses, which is another subject.
It's not a leap of faith to sit down in a chair, it is faith itself, which is an action based upon "belief."
The String Theoreticians, the 11 dimension crowd, claim nothing in our known cosmos is more than 11 centimeters away from every other thing, that gravity itself may be a remnant of the entanglement of all things "prior to" the, so-called, "Big Bang."
In short, as Shakespeare wrote, "there are more things in Heaven and Earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
I am, therefore I think.
The Buddha beat you to that explanation by 2,500 years, professor. :-)
This guy is a quack at both philosophy and science.
In 2002, scientists showed that particles of light photons knew in advance what their distant twins would do in the future. They tested the communication between pairs of photons. They let one photon finish its journey it had to decide whether to be either a wave or a particle. Researchers stretched the distance the other photon took to reach its own detector. However, they could add a scrambler to prevent it from collapsing into a particle. Somehow, the first particle knew what the researcher was going to do before it happened and across distances instantaneously as if there were no space or time between them. They decide not to become particles before their twin even encounters the scrambler. It doesnt matter how we set up the experiment. Our mind and its knowledge is the only thing that determines how they behave. Experiments consistently confirm these observer-dependent effects. Bizarre? Consider another experiment that was recently published in the prestigious scientific journal Science (Jacques et al, 315, 966, 2007). Scientists in France shot photons into an apparatus, and showed that what they did could retroactively change something that had already happened in the past. As the photons passed a fork in the apparatus, they had to decide whether to behave like particles or waves when they hit a beam splitter. Later on well after the photons passed the fork the experimenter could randomly switch a second beam splitter on and off. It turns out that what the observer decided at that point, determined what the particle actually did at the fork in the past. At that moment, the experimenter chose his past.
Native Americans didn’t even have a term for death - only a recognition of passing on into the next life...
We are chemical reactions and our being could well be separate from this universe of quantum particles (pixels) that are actually electromagnetic waves I believe.
If there is not existence after death none of us will ever know it.

Very interesting read. Thanks for the post.
