But I don't believe in the religious versions of heaven. They just don't make that much sense.
And fwiw, that 8 year old that went to heaven said that he saw the version of angels that is shown on Tv/books and other outlets. That makes literally no sense because the biblical versions of angels look more like monsters than humans with robes and wings.
So my theory is that it was all a hallucination, or they were stories told to him by his preacher parents that turned into memories during his coma.
I don't think anyone has experienced any afterlife. No one has ever DIED and then come back. There's a difference between real death and clinically dead. And no one has ever experienced real death so I cant believe stories from people who say they've died and went to heaven or hell or w/e.

In the book and the reason why his parents believed him is because he told them things he wouldn't know otherwise since he was floating out of his body, like what his dad was praying in a different room, his mom child that died etc etc
