More nonsense from Dr. Jeffrey Long
Here’s our “good friend” Dr. Jeffrey Long talking with Bill O’Reilly about his book on NDEs. Bill throws him a few softball questions, and pretends to play devil’s advocate, but even he admits he desperately wants this to be true. If Dr. Long wants to be taken seriously, I suggest he not troll the only TV network that admittedly caters to the religious and not-so-skeptical crowd and instead submit his arguments to peer review. If he thinks 1300 web surveys filled with anecdotal evidence is proof of an afterlife, than he really hasn’t done his homework when it comes to the scientific method.
Also on that note, I’m not sure I believe O’Reilly is a pious man; every time he tells his audience he’s a “believer”, I always get the sense he doesn’t really mean it. I’ve seen a look in the eyes of the truly faithful, and Bill certainly doesn’t have it. I find it hard to believe any man with such a huge ego can actually believe in a supreme being, which leads me to ask: does God have a Bill complex?
