Harriet Tubman, The Black Moses

by David Sunfellow

“As an adolescent, Tubman suffered a severe head injury when an overseer threw a two-pound metal weight at another slave who was attempting to flee. The weight struck Tubman instead, which she said ‘broke my skull.’ Bleeding and unconscious, she was returned to her owner’s house and laid on the seat of a loom, where she remained without medical care for two days. After this incident, Tubman frequently experienced extremely painful headaches. She also began having seizures and would seemingly fall unconscious, although she claimed to be aware of her surroundings while appearing to be asleep. This condition remained with her for the rest of her life; Larson suggests she may have suffered from temporal lobe epilepsy as a result of the injury.”

Near-Death Experiences That Predict The End Of The World

by David Sunfellow

What are we to think about near-death experiences that predict the end of the world?  Are these dramatic, mostly apocalyptic predictions reliable? Where do they come from? And what can we learn from them?

As an example of the kind of dire predictions we are talking about, this resource page begins with a 15-year-old Jewish boy describing his apocalyptic near-death experience. That video is followed by several more dramatic NDE predictions, including predictions from George Ritchie, Deputy Marty Breeden, Kathy Baker, Reinee Pasarow, Howard Storm, Kenneth Leth, and Mellen-Thomas Benedict.

Then we hear from Robert Mays and Kenneth Ring, two NDE researchers who examine this topic from different angles. Mays examines several current predictions that are waiting to come true, while Ring discusses a series of 1988 predictions that failed to materialize.

One important point worth noting: According to Mays, only four percent of the near-death experiences collected by IANDS contain future global predictions. Only four percent? Why so few? And why are most of them so dire?

Finally, this page includes comments, videos, links, and other information that explores the exceptionally poor track record of apocalyptic predictions (both past and present, from near-death experiences and elsewhere) and offers some concrete advise as to how to face — and constructively shape — whatever future awaits us.
