Statistical Analysis

If you like numbers, this is the place to be. All of our research is stored in a database, which provides the facility to organize, analyze, and present this massive amount of information. As this information changes, the statistics on this page change.

'Agreements' or 'Disagreements' represents a determination on our part that a particular source quotation agrees or disagrees with a particular Key Finding.

'Unassigned' indicates that no such agreement or disagreement was determined.

Key Findings

This includes 265 detailed Key Findings about the afterlife, which correlate to the information on Afterlife 101. These are compared against hundreds of quotes from respected sources. The results are shown as agreements, disagreements or unassigned. Any Key Finding that has at least one quotation in disagreement is classified as a disagreement. Some Key Findings are still without relevant quotations and are classified as unassigned.

Source Quotations: Agreement vs. Disagreement
