Pam Reynolds Lowery from Atlanta, Georgia was an American singer-songwriter. In 1991, at the age of 35, she had a near-death experience (NDE) during a brain operation. Her NDE is one of the most notable and best documented in NDE research.
During "standstill" operation, Pam's brain was found "dead" by all three clinical tests - her electroencephalogram was silent, her brain-stem response was absent, and no blood flowed through her brain which left her clinically dead. Interestingly, while in this state, she encountered the "deepest" NDE of all.
I find this a compelling case of proof, as the first argument given by atheists is that the brain is panicking and shooting chemicals everywhere as it knows it is dying, thus providing some sort of cocktail of stress relief and pain killer among other claims. The brain most likely does do those things, but that would be impossible in this case.
She also describes things happening around and outside her body as the doctors work. It would be impossible for her to know these things in a state of clinical death.
She made several observations about the procedure which later were confirmed by medical personnel as surprisingly accurate.
Pamela Reynolds Lowery later died of heart failure at the age of 53 (1956 -- May 22, 2010) at Emory University Hospital.
This famous near-death experience is considered by many to be proof of the reality of the survival of consciousness after death, and of a life after death.
Her out-of-body recollection is "the single best instance we now have in the literature on near-death experiences to confound the skeptics," according to Kenneth Ring, professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Connecticut and a chronicler of these episodes.
These are two cases of the tens of thousands documented Near Death Experiences. The first case Pam Reynolds has brain surgery and is intensionally going to be placed in a state of 'death' for an hour. These are medical doctors who stop her heart, and stop all biological processes to remove a large tumor at the base of her brain. I am curious if there are any atheist readers who would like to comment. The argument that she is dreaming, or the brain is sending down chemicals is not really there in this case.
In the second case a Teenage girl who drowned, describes the work the doctors were doing at a time when she was clinically dead.
