Now I'm glad they canceled "John Doe"!
This has to have been the worst explanation they could have had for John's knowledge!

snip..................

But at Fox's fall press preview this week, Berman told the site that she had discussed Doe's underlying premise with creators Brandon Camp and Mike Thompson. The secret: Doe was just a regular guy. ", when you're very close to death, when you're seeing the white light, God or a higher being gives you all the information of life to carry on to the next life," Berman said. Doe was about to die, but for whatever reason, he lived after being imparted with that knowledge, she said. The shadowy people who were after Doe knew what happened to him and were trying to keep him from discovering it himself, Berman added.

1. 'Duh!' comes to mind
It figures it would have a religious explanation considering the object they were searching for was hidden in the Vatican.

2. Yeah, but how many people each year come back from near death?
The idea has too many flaws in it as it's an event that happens to a fairly large number of people each year now.

3. Okay, that's way too silly of an explanation
I was just enraged when I heard they cancelled it, especially after the season (series) finale. ARRGGGHH!

4. That is pretty stupid
Especially since the finale hinted at remote viewing and telekinisis.

On the John Doe message board a lot of people speculated that John Doe was the Second Coming, which would have been really cool and interesting (and I'm not even a Christian).
