Simple as that..to get fame. Or else he's been brainwashed by religion so much that he believes he went to heaven and had to spread his good word to everyone. He might believe he went to heaven in his mind, and there is no way to prove it or not. It was more than likely a hallucination or a dream though.

And how exactly can he prove he went to heaven? For all we know, he could be lying quite well or took some hallucinogen and believed to be in heaven when really he was high as a kite. Or, he simply was lucid dreaming. I can do the exact same thing: lie or have some weird dream about flying trees eating goats and say I've visited another planet, or that I dreamt I was in fire and went and returned from hell. Either way, I consider that book to be a hoax and anyone who believes it needs to get themselves sorted out.

There's cases of people having vivid visions well being declared brain-dead, which kinda rules out having a dream. Hallucination or not, the near-death experience thing might be interesting to bring up here. I haven't read a lot of the websites, personally, but it could probably bring something to the argument going on here.
