    Seattle Doctor Specializes In Near-Death Experiences The NBC 10 Investigators tracked down a doctor in Seattle whose research may come closer to anyone else to answering the question, is there life after death? Dr. Melvin Morse is a pediatrician who used to think that people who were interested in near-death experiences just wanted to be on television talk shows. But something happened to one of his patients that changed his opinion. Now he believes the evidence points to something after life. Most scientists will explain that near-death experiences are caused by the lack of oxygen in the brain in the...

    What happens after we die -- do we continue on or is this life the end? Many of us hope there is an afterlife, and now some Arizona scientists say they have proof through their afterlife experiments. There are many people who say they have died and come back to life. They claim to have experienced an afterlife, even if for only a short time. Scientists at The University of Arizona have done extensive research, and say that they have the proof that when we die we continue to live beyond our physical bodies. "Almost anyone who sees the data...

    As more and more people come forward with accounts of near-death experiences, new research is about to examine the out of body experience to see whether mind and body really do separate at the point of death. It is only 30 years ago that the term near-death experience was coined. An American researcher, Raymond Moody, used it to describe the reports of a large number of people who, whilst apparently dead, had seen deceased relatives, tunnels of light, life reviews and felt an overwhelming sense of peace, before being resuscitated. Recent studies have shown that one in 10 people who...

    (Ventura, CA) Despite the constant flux in many dimensions of Americans’ lives, a new study from the Barna Research Group of Ventura, California, shows that most people have retained surprisingly traditional views about life after death. Although the lifestyles, values, and self-perceptions of most adults have undergone significant change – and millions of Americans have embraced many elements of a postmodern worldview – the vast majority continues to believe that there is life after death, that everyone has a soul, and that Heaven and Hell exist. However, more than 50 million adults are uncertain regarding their personal eternal fate. The...

    Actor Mel Gibson, much in the news these days because of his upcoming new movie on Christ's Crucifixion, appears to be among those whose lives were greatly affected by what are known as near-death experiences. Actually, let's call his case more a "brush with death": last year, while promoting another movie called Signs, Gibson told reporters that in his youth he'd had a life-and-death experience that carried intimations of something greater. "I remember driving really fast across [Australia], from Adelaide to Sydney," the actor told Sci Fi Wire. "I was like 21 years old. I was probably doing about 95...
