She shared her experience at the 3rd Spiritual Retreat for Near Death Experiencers, St Louis, May 2008:
What weight do you suppose we should give near death experiencer testimony? At one level, it’s akin to a person in Italy in the 13th century hearing of Marco Polo’s magnificent tales. You would probably believe that China existed after hearing the stories (even without yourself travelling there). Of course, the existence of China would not have made for a radical break from your existing background knowledge. Still, near death experiencers are interesting, and their accounts deserve serious study, don’t you think? And what do you believe that you know about the universe that makes their vivid tales implausible (if you think that they are implausible)?
