Maybe, because that is where they search for God.
Many, KNOW... God, or a superior being, does exist; and after returning, seek to find that all encompassing love of their experience.

Spirituality is a faster way to God.

I recently read a nice sentense :
to be religious means, to deal with the experiences of other people.
to be spiritual means : wanting to make his own experiences.

and they had already one : their own nde

Many NDErs have come back with the understanding that all religions are equally precious as all religions spring from the same unconditional love, which some refer to as the 'golden rule'. For Christians, for instance, this would amount to 'Love your neighbour as yourself'. If you just google something like 'love is at the core of all religions' you will find plenty of evidence about all world religions originally springing from the same loving source. Based on my understanding, we then filter this information through our brain and it can take on different aspects, be clouded by intolerance and even lead to religious wars. But wars have nothing to do with the purely spiritual message all religions spring from. I hope this helps.

I think what you are posing is a false dichotomy (Apples and Oranges).
Its like asking "Why do some NDErs become spiritual and others become dentists?"

Not: One can be spiritual OR religious
But: One can be Spiritual AND religious. This also implies one can be just religious or just spiritual.

A religion is an organized system, commonly based on spirituality.
Spirituality is a more basic and much broader term, so it can't be compared to religion.
