It's been a while but as a doctor I simply couldn't let this one slide:

Many scientists claim NDEs occur due to lack of oxygen in the brain, and hypoxia.
Lack of oxygen IS hypoxia numbnuts, there is no "lack of oxygen and hypoxia."

I have also seen studies where patients who had NDEs had just as much oxygen as others who did not have life threatening problems.
"Had" as is were administered or "had" as in had in their system when it was measured because these are two very different things.

Also, most of the time, people who have a lack of oxygen barely have any oxygen loss...
I'm sorry, what now?! The physiology of oxygen delivery, uptake, transport and end-organ delivery all disagree with you.

People don't even have to be near death to have them. Does this article prove NDEs are true?
I think what you're trying to get at is you don't need to be "nearly about to die" in order to have weird, difficult to explain experiences. That is about the only sensible thing I can surmise from your post.

There are many medications and street drugs that produce unusual hallucinatory / dissociative experiences. This however only makes them as real as it is for the person experiencing them.

Amongst the above mishmash of contradictory statements and half-baked conclusions I smell a more interesting question at the heart of all of this; is any experience really "true?" That is to say to what extent does our experience of the world reflect how the world really is and how do we know this to be so?

Invisibility and nothingness look an awful lot alike.
