Can near-death experiences be explained by science? What's the truth about NDEs? Fear not: there's no evidence of the supernatural. Modern brain science has yielded interesting new studies (such as the Aware Study by Dr. Sam Parnia, Olaf Blanke's work with electrodes stimulating the brain, and Dr. Michael Persinger's god helmet) that all seem to indicate that near death experiences are entirely a construct of the brain.
It's extremely unlikely that there's life after death as Dr. Jeffrey Long believes or "life after life" as Raymond Moody puts it, which means we don't need to be afraid of hell, and we should seize the day and make the most of this life.
