Many people strongly believe in the existence of heaven, but beyond deep-rooted faith it has never been scientifically proven. However that has all changed according to a formerly skeptical neurosurgeon.
While he doesn’t claim to have met God himself, he claims there were plenty of butterflies and beautiful women!
Dr. Eben Alexander is a very successful academic, teaching at Harvard University Medical School when he was struck down with near fatal meningitis in 2008 .
It was during this time that he began to rethink his logical belief that heavenly out-of-body journeys all had solid scientific explanations.
“The brain is an astonishingly sophisticated but extremely delicate mechanism. Reduce the amount of oxygen it receives by the smallest amount and it will react,” was his logical argument.
Dr. Alexander certainly has more credentials than I when it comes to discussing scientific matters, however I do believe this man may be slightly out of his mind.
My only plausible explanation would be that Dr. Alexander’s medications may be responsible for the out of body experiences he’s had.
I had my fair share of out of body experiences while I was studying at Babson!
