Bill Nye's dismissive comments on the afterlife should have appeared on a site called "Little Think." Like many other "skeptics," Mr. Nye seems to be unaware of the serious research done on out-of-body phenomena, near death experiences, reincarnation, and possession using a variety of methodologies, done by competent professionals and published in scientific journals.
Mr.Nye made a similar error in the past with his unjustified praise of the Common Core. Again, his conclusion was based on a very superficial knowledge of the issues. Please see: http://skrashen.blogspot.com/2014/09/my-response-to-bill-nye-science-guy.html
