How are all of these people experiencing the same things: tunnels, awareness of the scene while their body was unconscious, an intense feelingof divine love, etc. Why do these experiences transcend cultures? If you are being honest there is only one logical answer...

I think it's because the mind struggles to deal with time periods where it has no recollection.
What's interesting to note here is that although this phenomenon transcends cultures, the specifics of these visions always reflect the pre-existing assumptions of the individuals. And vary wildly from person to person.
Christians will claim they saw angels or heard the voice of their god, while Muslims may claim to have seen the prophet Muhammad.
If you are being honest here, there are only two logical conclusions -
1) We take all these claims with equal seriousness and draw the conclusion that all faiths are true. (Even though many religions are mutually exclusive.)
2) Or anecdotal evidence is useless and we can just draw the conclusion that for one reason or another, people feel what they want to feel.1
