    Have you listened to the interview? We can only speculate why Alex thought their religious beliefs were important enough to bring up and as we've established, there's nothing wrong with speculation.

    When 'materialist' researchers fail to replicate psi studies, their prior beliefs and biases are cited as reasons for that failure by proponents of psi. Perhaps we are just more forgiving of those whose biases align with our own?

    because some Fundy Atheists incorrectly assume NDE researchers like Jeff Long and Pim Van Lommel are driven by a religious agenda when they clearly are not.

    Well, when the goal of your research is to study specific experiences what else could you do?
    Surely, in terms of rigorous academic research you can find better work such as that of Greyson, Fenwick etc... Still, I am not sure why this should be discounted as "just stories". That's basically the best you can get if you want to learn about people's experiences anyway.

    To the best of my knowledge, no.
