Post links to articles proving or disproving life after death and discuss what you believe.
Eternal oblivion awaits us all if there is no life after death.
Here is a book on one theory..reincarnation
Read and discuss. Thanks night ape for original posting.
Go Fuck Yourself
Impossible to prove or disprove.
hey @Doc ...you didn't offer a "still unsure" option...
If there is no afterlife, then existence was a monumental waste of time and was utterly pointless.
Why does the universe have to give you purpose or meaning? It just is. The universe is independent of our personal wants or desires.
I traveled to Alabama once. I do not want to go there again, and i have no interest in going to someplace built by the same people who created Alabama. I feel similarly about an afterlife.
Why is there order in the universe?
Why wouldn't there be? The universe works on its own terms, not ours.
Because order is not a natural state.
Huh? If the universe is in any state, its its natural state by definition. All we can do is observe and perhaps try to understand it. We don't make the laws.
Why are there any laws in nature? Why do things work the way they do? Why can't things that are impossible one second be the norm the next one and back to impossible the next second?
If they didn't you wouldn't expect them too. You only think they should because you have observed them already happening that way. You are the one who expects an agent at work
Maybe the natural state of chaos is really an orderly structure but on a level that we are currently unable to perceive.
I don't assume that the laws of nature will continue to exist simply because I've seen them exist. They exist, but why they exist and what keeps them going I don't know.
Which, when you think about it, is not all that terrible. Think about how you feel when you're in a sound, dreamless sleep. You have no conception of time or space. No worries. No fears. No anger, no regrets. No stress. Nothing. Time means nothing. Eternal oblivion doesn't mean you'll be staring up at the inside of your coffin forever. It means you'll have no concept of self and therefore no fear, no panic, no anything. Given how difficult everyday living is for some people, the notion of eternal nothingness would be more appealing than what they experience.
you speak like life has to make sense to you. it doesn't come with a warrantee or owner's manual: it doesn't have to make sense to us.
so far i find the most pleasant experiences for me have been when i have been under anesthesia. when i have awoken, i have been sad that it didn't last longer.
