I read a book by an agnostic Doctor who worked with terminally ill children.

She was converted to Christianity due to many of these children testifying that they had spiritual encounters with Christ before their deaths.

The book was wonderful and honest. Titled " A Window to Heaven".

Did Muslim or Jewish children see Christ? I suspect that these experiences trigger a "religious" part of the brain, for want of a better word. Now if she found that these children of other religions saw only Jesus, then it's time to re-evaluate my agnosticism.

Heading off to Amazon.com to look for the book "A Window to Heaven", about the agnostic doctor who worked with terminally ill children.

I work in a nursing home. This is the last stop for these poor old souls before they go to the great beyond.

So I have been around many who were dying. I remember one lady on one of her last nights on earth reaching for the ceiling and saying "Pull me over, please pull me over."

My mother died in the hospital. She was riddled with cancer in her abdomen. The nurses told my sister that she asked them if she could leave now on the morning of her death.
