Guest: Dr. Neal Grossman explores near-death experience research, consciousness,
academic paradigms and why many religious groups are unfriendly toward
near-death experience research: “Both the scientistic type and the
devote religious person have something in common, they both think belief
in a spiritual reality is a matter of faith… To the religious person
the very idea that some of their religious beliefs might be capable of
being investigated by science to determine whether they are true or false
is threatening… This is the kind of mindset that’s deeply threatened
by near-death experience research because the concept of God, and the afterlife
and how it works is very, very different from what they want to believe.”
