Some of you may know that Habermas is considered on the world's most knowledgeable scholars concerning the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ. Here, in a fascinating interview, he weighs in on what he thinks about Near Death Expediences:

You just can't get any "deader" than this! https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/man- ... -td68bttnc

If a heart non-functioning for 18 hours isn't a indication of death - what IS?

Great post Philip , heard that interview years ago on YouTube .
Alex really tried his best to get habermas to admit that ndes favored universalism but to his credit habermas didn't fall into that trap .

Alex tsakiris grew up in a Greek Orthodox household but if I could characterize his beliefs (very hard to do) I'd say he was an agnostic spiritualist . Even though he seemed very uncomfortable with the God evidence (as he did in his last interview with dr Jeffrey long )
He still wants to pursue it .

I would still characterize tsakiris as an anti Christian and religion spiritualist .

Great find also Philip .this is showing us that even if the brain is inactive the brain cells are still viable with the potential to be brought back to normal function .

Another key date is July 2020 when the results for the aware 2 study are announced . If they get a few hits on the rotating images next to the ceiling it's gonna be the start of the time that materialism dies and spiritualism and science come together .
