    I apologize to anybody and I am not trying to insult anybody, but I was wondering is their any cases or stories where people died and came back from say Heaven or Hell?

    Sure, there are plenty of books out there detailing their journey through heaven or hell. Ill try and find some links.

    I personally think its a way to sell books and make a quick buck.

    I'm sure there are cases where people thought they did.

    I knew someone who died on the operating table and came back. I asked her if she saw a bright light. She rolled her eyes at me. I took that as a sign not to ask her such silly questions again.

    I've read that book...it didn't convince me of anything, other than the power of the human mind.

    I think the experiences of people who have techincally died and came back to life are insufficient for any actual answer to this question. You really want to trust that the experiences of a person who had enough trauma/pain/injury to die are anywhere close to accurate?

    If you lived after going to a Celion Dion concert I guess that would count as returning from hell.:D So I guess people have come back from it.

    You might as well be asking if anyone has been abducted by aliens.

    Personally I think there's a slight bit more of truth to alien abduction stories than these heaven and hell stories.

    They're both nuts and I don't believe either one, but I think being abducted and returning to Earth is ever so slightly more plausible

    I have. They did tests on me...and then probed me. Again and again and again and again and again and again. And then one more time.

    And that's not the worst of it.


    They made me slow dance with one of them...




    +1 to anyone who knows where that quote is from. :D

    This somehow reminds me of that Southpark episode where Cartmen has a satellite in his butt. :D

    Well, how do we know if that story is true or false? I think it's just like any other "I've been to heaven and back!" story...complete BS. And I wouldn't believe anyone who says they've been to the afterlife but come back unless I experience it for myself, which I don't think will ever happen.

    I was saying its uncalled for to say "real people" in reference to Jesus.

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to derail the thread. But, I guess belief in Jesus or some other God kinda goes along with the subject. :)

    Oh, okay. He existed, I will not argue that, but the entire story surrounding his birth, his death and any "miracles" he performed in life are complete crap IMO.

    I am with you on this one. Of course Sky Blue is entitled to his belief but it is mildly uncalled for to specifically say Jesus is not "real people" as he is more real to people (as red stated) than say we are.

    IYO, fine. You could have said "I dont believe the stories about his life" and have made just as much of an impact as "are complete crap" without disrespecting a religion and its teachings. IMO.
