What happens to us when we die? Many think of heaven as an unimaginable state of bliss. As for hell, it’s far out of proportion to any sin we might have committed and makes a travesty of God. But what if the afterlife was something very different? Three decades of research have taught Dr. Stafford Betty, a world expert in the field of death and afterlife studies, where the most reliable sources are to be found. Here is a fascinating discussion on the afterlife with Dr. Stafford Betty. Dr. Betty has a PhD in theology from Fordham University, teaches religious studies at California State University in Bakersfield, and has gradually evolved into a world expert on afterlife studies. Originally a specialist in Asian religious thought and the philosophy of religion, he branched out into paranormal research when he found that the big questions about the meaning of life were unanswered in the safe, tidy world of academic orthodoxy.
