Such an imaginary construct does indeed fit the definition of psychosis by DSM, and in other cultures "near death experiences" can take vastly different forms. Hence, your links are to worthless imaginings. It is past time for society to admit religion is an irrational, often dangerous delusion that has done far more harm to people than good. It enables war, abuse, theft, and mental illness and is despicable remnant of the worst of human's history.

No "bad guy" is going to waste time and money printing an expensive but soft dangerous gun that can fracture. those hobbyists that make guns use time-honored techniques and you can legally mail order a pistol barrel for $100 - 150

Very inexpensive guns are plentiful and robust enough for firing dozens of rounds without of failure. the bad guys will use those if on a budget

no appeal, just fact. A person's life can have purpose if they will and act for it to be so.

Your god must really, really have hated those Syrian children that writhed in agony for minutes as they died of chemical weapon poisoning. Must really, really hate the millions of africans that starve and are slaughtered in genocides. what a vindictive bastard He is.

that loon in Sydney attacked a store full of unarmed citizens. In the USA, that would just be impromptu poll of who's concealed carrying.

Sure, might not survive armed terrorist attack even carrying a weapon, but what would you rather have when someone determined to kill starts their rampage, some chance or no chance?

The more cordial the buyer's secretary, the greater the odds that the competition already has the order.
