In his best-selling memoir, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife, he wrote about a near-death experience he had a few years back after contracting a rare form of bacterial meningitis that left him in a week-long coma.
....
Prominent atheist and author Sam Harris has disputed Dr. Alexander’s reasoning, saying the experience does not prove there is an afterlife.

I take this at face value.

Who am I to say his own testimony on his own behalf is a lie?
If he did see heaven and it changed him.... Good.

If not.... Okay, life goes on.

Why assume he saw heaven?  And who said anything about a lie?  I think he BELIEVES he saw heaven, I just also think his critical thinking skills should be improved.

What is it with these Protestants always claiming to see the afterlife whenever they have a near-death experience?

What is it with these Orthodox....?

Here is what happened to me. I am drawing no conclusions for you.

Back in 2001, after my second heart attack, my lungs started to fill up with fluid. The doctors said I had may be another 30 minutes to an hour before I suffocated to death. In addition to couple of things that I have related elsewhere, the following also happened: I saw my deceased mother and son standing and looking at me about eight feet away--on two different occasions. No bright lights; just them looking at me, although I did notice that my son who had before his passing stood bowed down at the waist because of severe scoliosis, was now erect.
