Study of Near Death Experiences finds Evidence for God


New study of Near Death Experiences reveals that people experience `God` beyond death. A major result from Rene Jorgensen's new study of near death experiences revealed in his book The Light Behind God shows that people overwhelmingly agree to call the core of their experience - an experience of `God.`


When asked: “What would you describe the core or essence of your experience as”, the study found that 53 percent checked the box with “pure being,” and 60 percent said yes to “essence of existence.” Moving further into trying to put a name on this core or essence the consensus became higher with 73 percent agreeing to call it “the Light,” and a majority of 80 percent calling it “God.”
