sort of a religious question to both atheists and Christians...do you believe in?
astro projection and if so how does that confirm with your beliefs or non-beliefs?

Not until Science come up with an explanation.
But something similar really does happen during Near Death Experiences.
There is peer-reviewed scientific research on Near Death Experiences (NDEs) from the Lancet (one of the world's oldest and best known peer-reviewed medical journals), the Journal of the American Medical Association, and other studies that provides evidence for the existence of a transcendent soul.
+ Patients report seeing data that should not have been accessible to them in their brain-dead states, and which is subsequently verifiable. (1)
+ 80% of patients blind since birth can see during their near-death experience (later they clearly describe verifiable things that they have never seen. (2)
+ Patients encounter with transcendent beings (loving white light, Jesus, deceased relatives, etc.). (1) (3) (4) (5)
After NDEs, there is a measurable absence of death anxiety in both children and adults. (6) (7) (8)

No, one of the reasons I'm an atheist is I don't believe in the magic gods need to exist. This pretty much excludes believing in astral projection as well.

What kind of new-age garbage stuff is that?
I do not need to know anything about this astro-projection to know that god is a logical impossibility.

Nope. I don't believe in souls, so how could it leave your body? I believe in hallucinations caused by oxygen deprivation that simulate an "astral experience," as has been demonstrated in a laboratory.
