is a very important component of the scientific
method which investigators use to discover the truth
or falsehood of a theory. Without it, it is very
likely that humanity would still be living in caves.
True skepticism, as defined
by the early Greeks,
means not accepting any concept as being true or
false until it is proven so by "natural law".
there are many so-called "skeptics," such
as the so-called "Amazing
who have already made up their minds that the near-death
experience is not an afterlife experience. Such "skeptics"
cannot really be considered to be true skeptics
because they have already accepted the afterlife
theory to be false without a single shred of evidence.
Nevertheless, true skeptics have raised some very
intelligent and profound questions which need to
be addressed by near-death researchers and anyone
interested in the truth. The following are some
of those questions and the answers by some of the
top researchers in the field.
