The Death Experiences Of Felons

Nancy Evans Bush recently wrote a good blog post on the death experiences of prisoners. Though these individuals were felons, and some died "angry at everyone and everything, but especially at death", only one of them had a negative experience. Evans Bush concludes:

There is not a shred of evidence that good people get good experiences and bad people get bad experiences. The conviction that types of NDEs [near-death experiences] and deathbed visions are tied to moral qualities and behaviors simply does not hold up. If it’s true at Angola [the prison where the study was done], it’s true enough for me.

Here's a post I wrote a few months ago about the moral diversity of NDEs.
