That movie is biased towards christian religion. Colton's father was a pastor, so this kid was already brainwashed by religion. Why don't you read the following article: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/logical-take/201404/is-heaven-is-real-real
Reasonable people are fooled by optical illusions. Like I said, personal experience/testimony is the least valid evidence in science. You should know that, you sound pretty intelligent. What I'm saying is not intellectual dishonesty. It just doesn't fit your criteria so you reject it. The brain is not infallible to its perception of things. I'm not saying people didn't "see things" during their NDE but that doesn't mean the brain was not responsible. How do YOU know it wasn't? Just because you read some book somewhere doesn't make it a fact. Even the bible is full of BS and contradictions. And there is no proof of a god either that you could demonstrate, is there?
Definitely insensitive. They may have been trying to push diversity by having a black kid wearing a hoodie from their clothing line, however they didn't put 2 and 2 together to realize the offensive message they were sending. Someone missed this blunder big time but I don't have enough details on the person who had the final say on this to say it was blatant racism. They often see things differently in Europe.
I am absolutely open minded. I've read the bible 2x so I wouldn't be ignorant of its contents. But like I've already stated, witness testimonies are not scientific proof of anything. Sure, they count in a court of law..but not in science. Science is EVIDENCE based and witness testimony is not EVIDENCE based. I'm sure the book is an interesting read and gives false hope to many who have read it. But to me, it's just garbage and false comfort.
