Impressive how unscientific some of these podcast discussions are, e.g.:
Alex Tsakiris: You know, it’s amazing to me that 35 years after your book, we’re still taking seriously people like Dr. Sam Parnia, who I’m sure is a hard-working, extremely intelligent guy, well-meaning, but really? We’re going to put pictures above the bed and see? What are we trying to do here, 35 years have gone. How much human experience do we have to deny? |
Dr. Raymond Moody: Yeah, yeah. About that one in particular and in connection with that study was that this could possibly prove life after death and to me that was astonishing to read. I felt Plato pretty much put the kibosh on that one 2,300 years ago when he pointed out that even if you could prove that something leaves the body it doesn’t mean that it would continue to exist after the demolishment of the body.
Sam Parnia has never claimed he is trying to proof life after death. He is looking to provide some scientific evidence for all the nice anecdotes regarding consciousness thoughts during flat EEGs. I think your defensive stance on the AWARE study is due to at the bottom of your heart you expect a negative outcome.
