Thank you to Stuart for alerting me to this news report on the internet today.
I am really excited to hear that The John Templeton Foundation has given a grant to philosopher John Fischer of UC Riverside, California. The research is intended to explore aspects of immortality along with near-death experiences and the impact of belief in an afterlife on human behaviour.

Nancy Evans Bush has released her long awaited book Dancing Past The Dark: Distressing Near-Death Experiences. I have recently finished reading this great book on frightening or distressing NDEs. It is so refreshing to see the frightening NDEs brought to the attention of the public.
It will be extremely helpful when health care professionals, psychotherapists, and clergy are able to help an individual deal with whatever the experience was, no matter what academics name it. (The difference is rather like telling a child there is nothing to cry about because he was stung by a wasp and not a hornet—the problem is the pain, not the label.) Bush, Page 105
