This paper explores the existence of life after death. One of the primary sources is Raymond Moody's book "Life after Life", which describes people who have Near Death Experiences (NDE's) and have survived to tell about them. The author relates that, for centuries, many individuals have experienced spiritual events throughout their lives. The paper relates that, for most religious people, including the author, the Bible and other scriptures are the final word on what they believe.

From the Paper:

"Moody became known as the de facto expert on NDE's and his subsequent writings on the subject were greatly anticipated. One of his next books seemed to totally denigrate his earlier efforts and musings on life after life. One critic wrote, "By reducing the NDEs experience to a big joke, Moody in effect retracts the significance of the book that made him wealthy and gets the last laugh on the reader who buys his latest book expecting to see a serious philosophical analysis of NDEs." Does this mean that Moody completely changed his own viewpoint on life after death?'
