A young girl was telling her teacher about the bible story of Jonah and the whale. The atheistic teacher said, "It's physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because their throat is too small. Besides, any human would die in process."The girl stated confidently, "I don't care what you say, Jonah was swallowed by a whale."

The teacher replied, "It's impossible!"

The girl said, "Well, when I get to heaven I will ask Jonah myself."

The teacher replied in a smug tone, "What if Jonah went to hell young lady?"

The girl replied, "Then I suppose you can ask him."

That's a little humor I heard during a radio sermon a long time ago. But the argument of the Bible and an afterlife -- heaven -- is still a topic that is brought up daily in many cultures all over the world. As for me, I'm a Christian. I believe, end of story.

But heaven believers and non-believers are both enthralled when a story breaks of someone who passes from this life for a time, only to return to tell of another existence beyond what we see around us. The "Heaven is for Real" book that made the NY Times best seller list is good example of such an occurrence. Sometimes the stories are not so great, but many times they are, and they change a person's perspective for their remaining years on earth.

Now comes the story of a neurosurgeon who has a heavenly experience of his own. It's a story worth reading, and a video worth watching.
