Sooner or later, everyone faces the stark reality of impending death. Many people experience increasing anxiety as they face this issue as did Dr. Don Morse. Dr. Morse, a scientist who believed in the absolute finality of death, encountered a near-death experience that led him on a quest to uncover what science knows about the realities of death. His quest, detailed in this book, led him through the entire realm of science and all of the major religious traditions regarding death. After sifting through modern physics, research on near-death experiences, apparitional and out-of-body experiences, psychic phenomena, and a vast body of religious literature and theories offered by a host of organizations and individuals, Dr. Morse came to an inescapable conclusion: Some form of afterlife must exist. This remarkable book details what modern physics tells us about the underlying nature of the universe and its creation, what virtually every religious and philosophical g! roup tells us about life/death, and results from a host of research findings. Readers with uncertainties about death and those seeking a single source summarizing all of the relevant issues will find this book indispensable.
