One Response to “Thinking Logically About Death with Dr. Raymond Moody – Episode 59”

  1. Jenna

    Lisa’s interview with Raymond Moody is so much fun! Although I was shocked when he said he regretted publishing his book Life after Life. I agree with Lisa and with Raymond Moody that I am very much open to the idea of an afterlife. But I think it is unlikely that the afterlife is the same as described specifically by Islam, Christianity, ancient Egyptian religion, or other religions that have holy books giving detailed descriptions of the afterlife. The Qur’an describes Hell in great detail, but I have no particular reason to believe that description, just like I have no particular reason to believe Jesus dying on the cross somehow absorbed people’s sins because the Bible says so. Ancient books should not be regarded as absolute knowledge of anything, either about the afterlife or otherwise. I am open to learning from people’s NDEs and other experiences, but I find it unlikely that any specific ancient holy book that describes heaven and hell has any sort of absolute truth on the subject. I also find it unlikely that a power greater than ourselves is petty and judgmental about how people behave and worship, so I suspect the afterlife will not involve sorting people into punishment and reward, those are just human concepts for controlling behavior, but that doesn’t have anything to do with the Divine.

    Science is a very useful process, not because it creates perfect knowledge, but because it allows us to arrive closer and closer to what is true over time. Scientists are just people like everyone else, with their own biases and interests. What makes science useful is oftentimes there are multiple groups of scientists, who even though they have their own biases toward their pet hypotheses, these groups of scientists each try to provide evidence for their particular views and eventually these competing points of view gather more and more evidence toward something that has the most actual evidence, so that is what works with science, not that scientists are somehow objective robots. I think a mistake people make when presenting science and teaching it in high school and college is it is taught as a set of facts, when it is really the process that is so powerful, and when you take classes in school you don’t realize that.

    I like how you and Raymond talk at the end about what he fears most about the end of his life, and I definitely agree with him. The idea of being very old and helpless, and having tubes stuck in me, and even worse, being in a nursing home and not having the ability to speak up when a caretaker is abusive, is a nightmare scenario for many people.
