Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Explain your opinion in great detail.

Bonus Questions:

1) Do you know someone who had a near death experience?

2) Have you ever had one?

Enjoy!!!

Never done anything rather deadly except eating some girl's homemade food.

Sorry mum.

I've almost died so many times it's not even funny anymore.

I believe that it is.

Let's say a person is out swimming in the ocean, only to be caught by the waves. That person fights to stay above the water but to no use. He's saved by a lifeguard, but he's not breathing and his lungs are full of seawater. Thanks to the lifeguards' aid, he manages to start breathing again. Isn't that a near death experience? (And I did just steal an actual event that happened on Bondi Beach).

I've personally never experienced that dangerous.

When I was born my mother had postpartum depression ;/ and I was born at 7 months but the hospital told my mom that she could take me home the same day I was born (babies at that stage should be in incubators).

To make a long story short, my mom was depressed so she didn't realize that there was something wrong with me (I didn't cry or eat) and she left me like that for a few days until one of my aunts came to visit and as soon as she saw me she took me to the hospital, the doctor said that one minute more and I would have died. (don't know if I should feel happy or sad about it...)

I don't remember nothing of it, of course

Then at 10 I had an accident with a motorcycle which disfigured all my face . Then, the first time driving on the freeway by myself...only had like 2 days with my brand new license but I've found a job that paid good and I said I could drive well (so I could get the job!) surprise surprise...my job was 2 hours away from home (in car) at a place I didn't knew ~_~ my boss took me to my office the first day and in the afternoon he came back with another car, handed me the keys and told me that it was going to be mine while I work there....that meant that I had to go home by myself that day I literally felt Death sitting beside me.

A few years ago, I was riding one of those Razor scooters (go ahead and laugh) and was going pretty fast, and then the front wheel got caught on a crack in the pavement. I went flying and my right side of my face slammed against the concrete really hard. Luckily, I was wearing a helmet so I didn't hit my head, just my cheekbone, but it left me with a bad headache and a really bad bruise on my face for about a month and a half. I can just imagine how it would be different if I didn't wear my helmet. That's why you should always wear a helmet!

well I think for the driver in the car in front this would be a near death, if he was over just a bit more then he really would have died

as for me I have had a few times where it was a near death experience such as having a rifle fired at me and my uncle by the neighbor. the bullet went in between both of us, we were about 15 feet or so back from him. my uncle and I were talking about where we'd be going to hunt for the following day and the neighbor heard us and instead of turning his head he turned his body and the gun went off. having a .30-06 round land inches away from you is a hell of a thing.

Uhh I've almost gotten into head-on car collisions and had laced drugs before so that's pretty near-death for me. My life didn't flash before my eyes though -- none of that stuff

It happened about two weeks ago. I live in Canada so winters here can be pretty brutal with plenty of blizzards throughout the season. And with blizzards come really bad driving conditions. I was driving with my girlfriend one late night, thank goodness there were barely any drivers during that time, and I was driving pretty fast. Then this driver decides to change into my lane without turning on his/her signals. I jerked my wheel and we end up drifting for about 100m. With my awesome possum driving skills, we didn't spin out and didn't wreck my car. I did have to listen to my girlfriend nag at me the rest of the ride.

Yes, I believe it is quite possible for someone coding in the ICU of a hospital to be experiencing a near-death experience. I've seen it first-hand, so I might be biased not to question someone all bloody everywhere and doctors using paddles shouting "CLEAR!" and watching the body leap off the hospital bed reflexively but to no cardiac response THEN at the last second there is movement on the monitor. I don't forget such impressionable things so I can hardly detach to judge it objectively, bah I don't know why I'm bothering to write this, ugh .

Of course a near death experience is possible. People almost die all the time.

The real question is what is valid information? As the brain shuts down, how much is real and how much is dream?

are you the extra from Another

anywho, humans lives are fragile, the margin of error of death is pretty high. which is why everyone is so interested in death.

a near death experience is a phenomena no unlike that of time. its a manmade concept. does it mean it doesn't exist? no, but like time its relevant to what its for. the fact is, if you were to be near death than odds are you will be dead. although, what we deem to be near death is when you fall withing the margin of error for death but survive because you were not at the exact approximation of the resulting death.

yea, you can say i have plenty of near death experiences, but its due to the fact that i don't care as much for my life as i should and thus am very absent minded about things such as traveling cars or threatening a man who was set on taking a life. also i happen to push murphy laws to the limit due to my lack of care for self endangerment, to the point where (if you believe in the idea of magic and such) that every sight seer or psychic has told me that i have either outlive my life or am so near it that they don't think i will make it past my 30th birthday. although i have to say i have saved more lives then i have risked my own. with this story, my verdict is that yes i do believe in the idea of a near death experience.

in a more philosophical appeal, each day that you live, you are indeed risking your life to the point that you have survive the day before, thus you have experience a near death experience every day.
