What would be the reasoning behind this perspective? If the belief in an afterlife isn't rational, then how is this the disbelief in it any better?
There is life after death. It's been proven to me many times.
Yes sir when I was 3 during my surgery. Since then I've had a few more experiences that prove the dead are not really gone.
Concrete proofs cannot tell anything about spiritual realities. Sleep is not death. Complete death of the body is not death of the soul. Personal experiences are only true with the individual.
I see someone deleted my response...just proves that I was right, thanks =-D
The idea of a afterlife was most likely integrated into religion to assure compliance with the rules....you get more rabbits with carrots than you do with a stick.
Is this a statement or a question?
I was wondering the same thing
We don't need to believe that crap at all. The word death signifies the truth. It's over. The end, finished. If there was life after death then there wouldn't be any death now would there?<br />
Only the weak minded need to believe this shite, this delusion. Floating up to a non existent heaven instead of being eaten by bacteria as your body rots in the casket.
As I believe that I was alive before I invented this life and brought it forth as me, I have no reason to believe that it will end when the game is finished.
Life after death, a truth or a belief?<br />
If it is a belief, then such personal matter<br />
cannot be discussed and reached unanimity.<br />
If it is a truth, then it mst be discussed, verified,<br />
and accepted by all intellignt beings.<br />
By my learning, I find that this is a truth,<br />
I have discussed with many people and we<br />
have attained unified thought and unified action.<br />
Here, I am entering in conversation with the deniers,<br />
and I wish that the deniers will also consult<br />
with the believers for broader vision and greater <br />
agreement, for a new world that changes more rapidly <br />
than in any centuries of the past.
Yes, I am not a priest; I am a believer, a layman. I really appreciate frank conversation.
I told you I saw proof with my own eyes how much more logical can you get ha.....you've probably never saw an antelope in real life but you know they exist...or do you only believe in things you have seen with your own eyes?
Senses, reason, intuition, inspiration...are means for each individual to search the truth for himself through divine guidance in the Holy Books. We may reach agreement for cooperation, but we can never reach unanimity. That is the beauty of this world with human intelligence.
True, but I see no harm if some people take comfort in knowing that loved ones that have passes away are in a better place, and that they will find some peace after this painful life.
I agree with you
I have other goals than life after death...
