Woman claims she smelled God during near-death experience

38

A guest on Tuesday’s edition of “Fox and Friends” claims she smelled God during a recent near-death experience.


“I saw an immense brightness. A brightness I could feel, touch, taste, hear, smell that infused me.” Not like I had five senses but more like I had 500 senses,” Crystal McVea, author of a new e-book,“Waking Up in Heaven: A True Story of Brokenness, Heaven, and Life Again,” told Fox host Gretchen Carlson.

A recent university study found that people who recount their near-death experiences (NDE) have more vivid memories of the events, whether they be the imagined events that take place during the NDE or the real ones from earlier in life.

In 2009, McVea was being treated for pancreatitis. After having an adverse reaction to pain medication, her heart stopped for nine minutes before doctors were able to revive her.

“The moment I closed my eyes in that hospital room, I immediately opened them and was standing in heaven,” McVea said. “I fail to find human words to described what I experienced while I was standing there.”

  1. In the video she claims that during the course of her life, she violated all of the ten commandments. Out of idle curiosity I probably would have asked her to talk about the circumstances which led her to covet her neighbor’s ass.

    • I’d seriously wonder about when and how she broke “Thou shalt not kill”, and whether she served any time for it. Hopefully she’s just one of those dimwitted sheep who’ve never actually read the bible and don’t really know all the Commandments.

  2. Shouldn’t a self confessed life-long doubter and breaker of all ten commandments have seen rather, an immense darkness, intermittently lit by dancing flame and the noxious glow of roiling brimstone; her lungs seared by the acrid smoke of roasting flesh; her eardrums pierced by interminable wailing and gnashing of teeth?

  3. Maybe it is time for Yahweh to have a holy bath? paying particular attention to soaking the nether regions, cos that is where all the stench comes from, it must be the robes, very unsanitary, the glory laundry is dealing with some very nasty stains, cos all that milk, honey and ambrose is not good on a lactose intolerant stomach!

    A deity with BO is not particularly welcome into the pantheon bar on couples night!

  4. Two things: she says that she fails to find human words that can describe what she saw in Heaven. Which begs the question: in what non-human language is her book written in?

    Second: why do NDE folk always seem to go to Heaven, never Hell?

      Back when I was a kid (fortyish years ago) and first heard about this, they did interview a couple people who said they went to Hell. One guy even said absolutely nothing happened. Why doesn’t the media interview those folks anymore?

  5. I had a similar experience to this woman only 2 nights ago. After I fell asleep, I appeared in a very strange place where I met and spoke to friends who died several years ago. Did I go to Heaven, or was it just a dream?

      Judging by her appearance I’d guess that she smelt pies.

      OH, that was naughty. But they would have had to be inexpressively wondrous, mind-and-stomach bogglingly awesome pies. Love pies, joy pies, kissing puppys pies, just-found-out-you’re not pregnant pies.

      Mmm. I need to go and make breakfast.

      • *In reply to #12 by justinesaracen: I just had to come back for more….she got so close and personal with god, I wish she had asked him one question: does god have a penis? I mean, if we are to believe Genesis, he must have since he made Man in his image and we know how that turned out. But what the hell did god need one for in the first place and what use has it been to him since? Is this an example of intelligent design or what? *

        I had pies like that before…I was in a coffee shop in Amsterdam at the time though…yum yum yum.

  6. women really, you can’t get anything right!

    you’re supposed to blame it on the dog! D. O. G. understand?

    If you can’t get this right we’ll never get on to Bloke Etiquatte lesson 2 (correct facial expressions to pull when examining your neighbour’s new car) and you can forget the “how long you can keep moving things between the shed and the loft that you’ve been explicitly told to throw away” interactive workshop session

    much to learn

  7. It is not this dumb idiot’s fault she misinterpreted random sensory neurone impulses which accompany oxygen deficit and medication effects on a brain during such trauma and made up a spurious nonsense to explain them…

    What pees me off right royally are the even bigger idiots that buy the book or even bother downloading it!

    Then spout the bollix as trash gospel and as unimpeachable ”evidence” for their crass inspired jeebus circle jerking.

  8. So she had a NDE and now wrote a book and is getting paid for appearances…I smell money. I wonder what her former day job is now that she can probably afford that beachfront property. I should write a book before paper books are dead.

  9. The woman obviously has no idea what hallucinations are and why people take drugs! It sounds like whatever the doctors gave her sent her on a pleasant trip which she now interprets as heaven!

      Oliver Sacks has a great new book on this subject (“Hallucinations”).

  10. I wonder how her children are coping with the fact that she was perfectly willing, against God’s protestations apparently, to abandon them in order to stay in heaven. If I were them, I would be hiding the kitchen knives and bbq briquettes, just in case she starts hearing God speaking to her again; that whole Abraham episode would be at the forefront of MY thoughts.

  11. The headline banners on the story by Fux News basically tells it all; get something that sells to our audience so they can have the ‘real deal” too. “Crossing Over” is a statement that says death can be trancended from this life to some other form of being, therefore is real by statement alone. “Author shares’ implies she is giving away a gift, something free and mutually beneficial (just for you). “Remarkable” claims worthy of notice, “amazing’ as great wonder or unusual, and “healing experience” suggests it worked, she got better and did not actually die. Finally, (in gold text no less) “Waking up in HEAVEN” claims the end result. Is there anything else you need to know about the people that run Fux News than this headline?

  12. Another salient point methinks…

    Why would a god take his ‘creation’ to the point of extinction only to bring her back again after letting her have a ‘sniff’ or glimpse of heaven, that seems extremely if not extraordinarily cruel?

    That ‘stinks’ of bored sadism and ranks quite easily alongside pulling the legs off spiders or the wings off flies just to see them freak out, or putting a clothes peg on the tail of a cat to see its shenanigans in its distress.

    And if god is so beneficent on to this one…why was she so ill in the first place ?

    Be much more of a mind fuck if it did that to everyone on the planet, just once every generation and that would be end to discussion forever and everyone would indeed be aware of which way is up, but if the intent was to advertise its presence as a tease, then that is the most amateur and pedestrian of methods to get the word out, methinks not one advertisement agency in the Western or Eastern world would be particularly keen to add Yahweh to the workforce…dude is a dumb loser and would be a liability!

  13. If you read the blurb up on Amazon, you can see she also breaks the ninth commandment – what we know as Lying for Jesus:

    Crystal and her husband Virgil, a US Army veteran, are devout Christians and active in their local church.

    and then this:

    And that was the other thing about me—when it came to God’s existence, I was a skeptic. I had grown up in the heart of the Bible Belt, been baptized not once but four times, gone to church regularly, and heard a million sermons about God. And yet, deep in my heart, I wasn’t convinced. Over and over I challenged God to prove He existed, and every time He did. I’d set up a new roadblock, a new challenge for Him to overcome.

    Yes, she sounds like a read skeptic to me. Would fit in here no problem…

      Now this is weird. How is god, a supposedly immaterial being, supposed to have a smell, which is the detection of chemicals that are most definitely material?

      Never let it be said that jeebus drooling increases mental acuity, knowledge or logical cognizance.
      But when you are extremely dumb for jeebus you are de-facto regarded as a genius in your peer group.

      And that peer group is then ripe for serious scalping…ergo the more ridiculous, asinine and stupid the claim the greater the profit!
