Science is wonderful.

Part of my training in Stephens Ministry was to recognize the classic stages of coping with death.
The ones identified by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. Except, it seems, nobody has ever replicated her insights, because they were 'self-evident' and could be easily verified by looking.

Oops. That's one of the no-no indications for psychological science - you can pull out almost any kind of nonsense from anecdotal observations.

Anyway, she's dead, or is she? And Slate has an article about it.

Excellent article, and thanks for pointing it out. I wonder what Susan Blackmore(expert on memes and former NDE researcher)would have to say about it...
