A Comparison of Near-Death Experiences Occurring Before and After 1975: Results From an Internet Survey

Description: Abstract: The 1975 publication of Life After Life (Moody, 1975) led to wide public recognition of near death experiences (NDEs). Much of the early NDE research, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, studied NDEs occurring predominantly before 1975. If the content and aftereffects of NDEs remained constant before and after 1975, this early NDE research may be considered applicable to NDEs occurring more recently. This study used the methodology of an Internet-based questionnaire survey that has not been previously reported. A total of 218 NDErs were surveyed. The only statistical differences between the group with NDEs before 1975 (n=48) compared with the group with NDEs during or after 1975 (n=170) were due to expected differences in NDEr age at the time of the NDE, and age currently. No other significant difference was found between these two groups with regard to NDE deomgraphics, experience elements, or aftereffects studied.

A New Perspective on the Afterlife Issue

Description: Article exploring the claim that human beings survive death as conscious entities, suggesting that a recording may persist of some aspects of one's life, of which some people may become aware under certain circumstances.

Response to "A New Perspective on the Afterlife Issue"

Description: Article responding to V. Krishnan's argument that the phenomenon of children who claim to remember previous lives indicates that an inanimate recording of a person's mental activity at the time of death persists in the local area after he or she dies. According to the author, several areas of empirical evidence conflict with this hypothesis.
