How common are Near-Death Experiences? The Epoch Times examines the phenomenon by reviewing surveys and studies that have asked people about their beliefs and whether they have had an NDE.
Did you know that every year nearly 200,000 people in the United States have a Near-Death Experience? Studies indicate that religous beliefs have little to no effect on whether a person has an NDE, but 70 percent of people who have NDEs describe them as a spiritual experience.
