Dinesh D'Souza and Deepak Chopra have claimed that reason and science supply new and persuasive evidence for the afterlife evidence that wasn't there before. They rely on studies of past-life memories, near-death experiences, various paranormal claims, and the notion that quantum mechanics gives reason to believe that consciousness is a separate entity from our bodies and brains, and is thus able to survive death. Stenger will examine this evidence from the point of view of a physicist who has spent forty years studying the fundamental structure of the universe.
