What about reincarnation stories, Dominic? There are plenty of those out there as well, and when it comes to evidence, at least there's something concrete about those. Not to say that they couldn't also be faked, made up, or hallucinated, but at least for some of them, there are details which can be validated, and cases where it's very hard to figure out how the person involved could have known some of those details. I'm not saying I necessarily believe them, but there are some pretty convincing ones out there.
Now, if you want to believe in general woo, there's no particular contradiction you can't wrangle into some sort of personal vision of alternate afterlives, but clearly when it comes to Christianity the reincarnation stories don't "fit".
To go along with your original question, can you study reincarnation stories and remain a Christian? And if you find them less compelling than NDE's, and can wave them off with an explanation of their being faked or delusional, why can the same not be said for NDE's?
