"Near Death Experiences — Evidences for Mankind's Spirit"

When our bodies die, is it over?

Just in time for the Halloween season, this lecture is presented to encourage believers and unbelievers to recognize the scientific evidence for our spirit and combat the naturalist philosophy that we are only physical beings.

Hosted by: Ratio Christi at Liberty University
