No. Unless they were reincarnated and remembered and stuff.

No, unless you believe people who have died and come back to life talking about seeing relatives and a bright light.

Er, no.

No, because they're still alive.

Yes, people have died before and been brought back to life, sometimes for seconds and sometimes for a few minutes.

^ I second that.

it never says they have to have knowledge of thier own death. can't they have knowledge from other people's deaths?

I guess only if they died for a few minutes and they came back.

a friend of mine said he died for a few minutes, and he was in this really beautiful field of flowers. then it felt like his nerves were being ripped out one by one because they used the paddles to bring him back.

Only if you believe in reincarnation.

knowledge is not only based on experience. I have knowledge of India and California though I've never been there. On that same level I have knowledge of death.

Not quite, though - you have knowledge of India and California through the reports of people who actually have been to India and California. No one has ever died and come back to tell you about it.

Is that real death though? Unless I'm mistaken, even after you're declared "dead", your brain continues to function for up to 3 minutes, which is why some people have been revived from the "dead". Other cases of people being dead for longer often turn out to be cases of apparent death, but in reality it's just extremely weak lifesigns.

I think we can know ABOUT death, but to understand we honestly have to go through it. It's like how single people of course know what marriage IS, but we don't really know what it's like. We know what happens, but how it feels is a mystery, one we simply have to enjoy when it comes.

If you mean the actual experience of dying, possibly. Some people have been revived a few seconds after death, but -like the above posters- I'm not sure if that truly counts as death.
If you mean the actual experience of being DEAD, no. I don't believe there is any conscious experience to have knowledge of.
