They are more reliable and observable than belief in spontaneous generation or the fairy tale that the universe evolved from nothing.


I am not sure how you observe things.

Knowing what is going on around you while under anaesthetic is not the same as the afterlife.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

In other words, eye witness accounts are more reliable than a more scientific approach (e.g. car collision tests) for verifying what actually occurred in the case.

MAKES SENSE TO ME. Can't trust that science and all its baloney! Science??? More like Science Fiction! Suck it, Neoteny and you other science-types!

Or...just maybe, Jonesy, being under anaesthetic is the window to the afterlife, just like it has been conclusively proven that dreams are a window to our souls, just like it has been conclusively proven that windows with screens are better on hot days with a bit of a breeze. I rest my airtight case.

Quick, someone start operating on him and lets see if he remembers anything when he wakes up (we could make some money by selling one of his kidneys too)
