First, let's get one thing straight. Dr. George D. Ritchie, who passed away in 2007, was not a "Mormon." Many people think he was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as the LDS church, because Ritchie's near death experience was doctrinally compatible with what Mormons believe. But it's these same points that make Richard Alan King so convinced that Ritchie's experience was delusional, that he was deceived or that he is seeking to deceive others. The reason? Because King's narrow minded scriptural exegesis is at odds with what Ritchie was shown.

King details what he believes are some factual misconceptions, one of which is the passing of time. What should have taken much longer doesn't take the far lengthier time that Ritchie recounts in his story. The only explanation, King says, is that this is a characteristic of dreams. Ritchie thus may have been dreaming. So, too, may have been John on Patmos, but Ritchie, who believes that God exists outside of the bounds of time and space, is willing to cut God some slack. But King, who has no problem with Jesus walking around with a sword in his mouth, is grieved.

Additionally, the critic has problems with Hell being remedial, as the LDS believe. No, God loves his children so much that he's willing to consign them to flames forever and ever, worlds without end, if they don't accept Jesus in this life. Although Jesus, while he was dead, went and "preached to the spirits in prison" which "once were disobedient" in the days of Noah, there's no redemption in King's Bible. We LDS believe that in Hell, man is his own tormentor, and this is a common theme in NDEs. In fact, in many, man tends to be a harsher judge of himself than the Lord.

I'm not going to speculate about King's intentions in writing his book. I will assume they are sincere. But all that really needs to be said about King's "rebuttal" is that both his assumptions and his argument are head-scratchingly ridiculous from the get-go. (Well, that, and the fact that he is incredibly presumptuous to imply he is speaking for all Christians rather than just for himself.)

First of all, while George Ritchie's account of his so-called "near-death experience" (like all metaphysical or mystical experiences) is either delusional or it isn't, there is absolutely no way that either an empirical or a logical approach to the subject can possibly help you decide which. King seems completely oblivious to this fact, however. His simple-minded approach to the problem thus assumes, first, that since it's possible for near-death experiences to be delusions, then they must be--unless, of course, they accord with King's own idiosyncratic view of life, in which case I guess he's willing to waive that rule. But this is hypocritical as well as nonsensical.

Second, to assume that the truthfulness of one mystical experience and its otherworldly claims can be proved by how well it accords with one or more literary traditions which purport to record other mystical experiences and otherworldly claims is, well, a bit goofy, not to put too fine an edge on it. Either way you turn you're dealing with experiences and claims that can't be substantiated, at least not logically or empirically. So to use one set of unsubstantiated claims as a standard for judging other unsubstantiated claims is the very definition of irrationality.

I enjoy reading rebuttals to stated positions however this rebuttal is so poorly argued that it makes it unworthy of the time required to read it. The author spends the majority of his time bloviating but little time validating his position with facts or scriptural references.

Return From Tomorrow doesn't need a Christian rebuttal. It's a Christian book. Even the title of this book indicates the author's bias.

Thanks for calling George Ritchie out on his obvious fabrications.
