I’m thinking about starting a religion. Again. (I didn’t start one before, I just thought about starting one before…)
When I thought about it before it was because I wanted something without dogma and rules but a framework for my spiritual preferences, namely a reverence for love and nature. Also because it may have allowed me and my loved ones exemptions to amoral laws. However I have been inspired again due to the fact that there is mounting scientific evidence that there is alot more to the universe than meets the eye, indeed there is mounting quantum evidence that there is alot more to reality than newtonian physics. There is also mounting anecdotal evidence from thousands of near death experiences that consciousness is not limited to the brain, and not limited to death even, as thousands of people have recorded memories of things they have observed while their bodies were ‘brain-dead’. On top of that the vast majority of the observations correlate, they are similar if not the same.
Is there an argument for a new religion and or spirituality and or cosmology to be created based on the scientific record of near death experiences or to a lesser extent the scientific record of past-life regression hypnotherapy?
To the point where the evidence supports or contradicts mainstream science and/or mainstream religions?
