A very interesting article titled Can Science Explain Heaven? from Newsweek.com, touches on the idea of whether or not science will ever be able to explain heaven. Author Lisa Miller of Heaven: Our Enduring Fascination With the Afterlife, describes the theory of Andrew Newberg, associate professor in the radiology department at the University of Pennsylvania, who takes a closer look at the neurological activity of the brain once it begins to die.
In short, scientists have been able to establish the protective, self-defense chemicals the brain releases as it begins to shut down — as a result, these chemical releases could be the cause of the consistent physical sensations (out-of-body sensation, tunnel vision, bright light, powerful amounts of contentment and inner peace) reported by those who have had near-death experiences. Just a theory, but questionable none the less!
Psychic Jacqueline ext. 9472 describes part of her near-death experience as “… all of your senses are very much a part of heaven. You not only see the beautiful flowers, you actually hear the music they are singing. The flowers greet you, and you are a part of them — they are your brothers and sisters. The smells are so unbelievably and euphorically fragrant.”
What do you think psychics? Could science conclude that brain responses are responsible for the ‘heaven’ people report? Bloggers, do you have any input?
