Read the article, post your opinions.


If it comforts you and makes you a better person to believe in heaven I'm not going to try and convince you it doesn't exist.

Call me crazy, but when you start a thread like this you should expect judgement from others. Myself though, I find it easier to believe I'll go to Hogwarts when I die.

Is this real or is this just a fanta sea?

I'm sorry I'll stop now. Welp good for him I figure. Must have been nice. I'm not very religious but it would be nice to actually go somewhere when I die instead of sticking around and watch generations die or be a big fat nothing but a corpse in the ground.

There hasn't been a whole lot of it in this thread from what I can remember. It's mostly constructive speculation. I don't know how many, but there are one or two posts in this thread where I go into my reasoning behind making the thread. I've also left a pretty strong trail of thought on this forum over he past 12 months or so. I just see it as being better to have the facts than to look nail deep into something.

"He's chronicled his experience in a new book, "Proof of Heaven: A neurosurgeon's journey into the afterlife," which will be published in late October."

I'm sure glad he's able to profit off his "experience". Call me a cynic.

While I was sleeping I saw Jesus riding a dinosaur while cats shot lasers out of their eyes and the sky was blue with the color of a yet-to-be-released flavor of skittles.

And while envisioning all this, I saw God, and He does look just like Morgan Freeman!

And He said He has a place reserved for me in heaven along with Justin Bieber, Tira Banks, and Mr Rogers!

I know right? Amazing!

And then I found myself flying across the galaxy on the USS Enterprise but I was the Captain. Best Captain ever... but why would God need a starship?

How else would a neurosurgeon put food on the table? I mean between the Ferrari payments and the new house in the Bahamas there really isn't much to survive on!

For those of you interested in Brains, Technology, and Artificial Consciousness, research the 'Blue Brain Project'. Maybe when it's done the problem "Is there a heaven because we saw it in our dreams" will be either proven or disproved. It's like the problem 'does P = NP', it can only be speculated until it's mathematically or scientifically proven.

I always thought making artificial brains was an interesting topic. I doubt it will lead to answers about religion but I bet that it can lead to some answers about humans. Like can you program free will? The artificial brain is going to act as it is programed to even if it is told to act random that is not free will that's just the program telling it to do that. Maybe none of us have free will and we are all just doing what are biological commands tell us to do.
