Good talk with Michael Shermer at the 'Skeptiko' website, even though I firmly believe in an "afterlife", though not like he brings up in the podcast about the Christian idea of a physical bodily resurrection (good luck with that fantasy IMO).
Dr. Michael Shermer on Near-Death Experience Science
I think we need skeptics like Michael Shermer to keep searching on behalf of the skeptics out there, because there is a lot of crap out there about what happens after death just like that example above about Christian bodily resserection...but who am I to throw my 2 cents worth in as well, right?
Without my own life experiences to go by, I would probably be in Michael's skeptical shoes, as well.
