What is death and whether there was Christ`s revival? Medical aspects of

there is the third millennium A.D. Now, perhaps, there will be a little those who doubt that Jesus (Yahshuah) is the character historical. Eventually, there is nothing surprising that a certain Yahshuah was given birth by the Jewish mother, lived in Israel, created the doctrine, had pupils and followers.

In 1929 Albert Einstein on a question of " newspaper editorial office; Saturday Evening Post - whether he believes in historical Jesus - answered: Undoubtedly! It is impossible to read the Gospel and not to feel real presence of Jesus. His personality breathes in each word. No myth has so powerful vital force .

Also the attractive force of the doctrine of Jesus is explainable, it is based on reality of resurrection from the dead - this centuries-old dream of mankind. When it turns out that there is no death, it is very joyful message.

Eventually Jesus`s doctrine developed into belief. And therefore already two millennia considerable part of mankind reckon time from Jesus`s birth.

So, Jesus lived. Whether he died? Whether there was an event of its revival from the dead?

It is obvious that revival seems to the atheist impossible, as well as any other supernatural phenomenon: as there is no god-send, there is no sun which stopped in the sky or the parted sea waters...

The agnostic will tell that as now it is impossible to check the fact of revival, what sense to tell about it. And it is valid, later two thousand years to estimate attestations of eyewitnesses - occupation absolutely unpromising.

Someone the third will treat the revival fact even more rationally: as we never saw that any of the dead returned to life, it is illogical to trust in it.

And still we will try to understand. To understand whether there was a revival, it is necessary to answer a question, first of all: WHAT is DEATH? It is only definitely possible to tell that death - the process which is sharply changing usual the physicist - chemical properties of a body. But the criterion by which at external survey it is possible to establish authentically the death fact does not exist. There was no it, naturally, and two thousand years ago.

Not so long ago in one of the St. Petersburg laboratories researches on comparison of physical parameters of a live and dead body were conducted. The effect Kirlian - a luminescence of biological objects in electric field was the basis for a method. It was established that intensity of a luminescence of dead bodies decreases, however it even after several days does not reduce to zero. That is, dead bodies remain biological objects rather long time.

Here we approached the next vital issue: WHAT DIES WHEN we SPEAK ABOUT DEATH of the PERSON?

Some physicians (including doctors of science) quite seriously consider that with the last exhalation of the person his body is left by soul. Messages on parameters of the electromagnetic field indoors with dying are provided in scientific literature. The following fact attracts attention: in 1 - 2 seconds after the last exhalation some splash in parameters of the field is noted. What is it? What transaction happens at this moment? Perhaps, really devices fix process during which the soul leaves a body? But if something, called by soul, the body, then what its future and whether it is possible to consider in that case that the death exists leaves? Uncertainty of a ratio between life and death, in my opinion, the biggest riddle of life. However, if to represent live organisms as the lifeless matter which reached the special, specific organization, then the death can be considered as the process which is followed by reduction of degree of this organization. And then there is a measure question: to what degree of the special organization of lifeless matter it is necessary to call reduction death?

In a number of cases the death can be a temporary state at which the patient, as well as in case of an illness, can be cured. And here it is necessary to ask a question: what is the time the death lasts? Some will tell that such statement of a question is inappropriate. But nobody will be surprised by a counterquestion: what is the time the being has to be live that his that recognized?

In the UN in department of statistics suggested to define death as final termination of all vital signs . It would be worth agreeing with this definition if it is absolutely clear what to understand as vital signs and as their termination. Today medicine level such is that vital signs of many bodies it is possible to prolong a long time artificially. The final termination of their function will come when the personnel of clinic switch off the corresponding equipment. From here logically follows that death is what depends on the decision of the doctor. Actually the death represents a certain function which arguments are personal qualities of the doctor, his professional skills, equipment level the medical equipment, a real condition of the patient and mass of other random variables.

At today`s level of development of biology and medicine any impartial researcher will tell that the death can not always be established authentically that transition from life to death, sometimes, is imperceptible that life constantly moves apart the borders, and the death even more often becomes something not final.

Anyway, it is necessary to recognize obvious: the criterion of death is not found yet. And if so, then it is impossible to estimate also the fact of revival.

Nevertheless, there are only two versions of the answer to a question of revival. Or it was, or is not present. It is only necessary to choose one or the other. It is known that the category of the choice - the most difficult, and can make the choice everyone only.
