Most medical institutions worldwide agree that near death experiences or NDEs for short are the hormonal death throes of a persons subconscious when that said person is either close to death or dying. There are also a number of reasons as to why a persons firsthand recollection of an NDE could either be fake or completely unreliable due to the age of the person, their mental health and ulterior motives to lie. Although I do believe that people actually see things during an NDE but I think that what they see has a completely scientific explanation that is not supernatural. Medical professionals do not believe that they exist, not to mention that the caucasian christians who experience NDE's see completely different things then people who live in different non-christian countries see when they have NDE's.

Hi thanks for the debate. It is your burden to demonstrate that NDE can be explained through scientific reasoning. While I do agree that there is a scientific reasoning behind NDE, you need to provide evidence. For me, I have to negate your arguments to win.

Reasons for voting decision: No arguments were really discussed, but Pro decided to give it to Con by forfeiting. How sad, I had hoped for a really interesting round.
