Has anyone confirmed he's a Harvard grad?

RE: Heaven is Real (says Doctor in a coma)
I would say coming out of a coma that it is possible to have a vivid hallucination and then write a book about it. I wonder if he has and residual effects from the infection..

"E. coli bacteria entered his cerebrospinal fluid and were eating his brain. It was unknown if he would live. Then, on the morning of his seventh day in the hospital, his eyes opened as the doctors weighed whether to discontinue treatment."

"Everything thus indicates that they have access to dreaming," emphasizes Laureys. "As a result, we can legitimately suppose that they still have a form of consciousness of self in addition to a certain consciousness of the external world."

I find it amusing that none of these "cross-overs" ever come back scared out of their wits because they saw hell. You'd think any self-respecting god would use it as a tool to scare some people straight.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

Here's Sam Harris response to this crap. I couldn't get beyond the sentence in the original article, where he says "the human part of my brain".

For some reason this story reminded me of 'Contact' with Jodie Foster 0_o

RE: Heaven is Real (says Doctor in a coma)
Eben Alexander is clearly motivated by money and fame. As a neurosurgeon, he doesn't really have to know neurobiology, but he ought to know better because he should have learned about it at some point in his education. I just have a biology degree and I know better than to jump to that kind of conclusion, let alone come out with a whole book about it. It's ridiculous. From what I have learned, states of minimal consciousness brought on by hypoxia can produce many strange experiences including changes in ones visual field, flashbacks, out of body experiences, and hallucinations. Experiences like this can be reproduced in G-force chambers and at high altitudes.
