Hi everyone, Do you think there is an afterlife of any sort?
there is no evidence of an afterlife. there is no anecdotal data concerning an afterlife, despite bright tunnel white light so-called experiences of some surely sincere folks who had weird dreams while being technically (and extremely briefly) "dead." there is a lot of evidence for there being no possibility whatsoever of an afterlife (such as our consciousness being the result of electrical and chemical activity in the brain; if the brain is dead, there's nobody left to experience an afterlife). no one has yet undergone a soulectomy or a spiritotomy, or even an incarnationoscopy. people who believe in an afterlife usually offer the reasoning that "there must be" or "i want there to be." if wishes were fishes, no one would be hungry (except possibly fish).
No. Those who claim there is one can prodcuce no evidence to support their claim, and all available evidence against the claim points towards our consciousness ceasing to exist when our brains stop functioning. Believing that there is another life after death is understandable wishful thinking, but it is very hard to see how it could work.
