I’ve asked numerous people for an honest opinion of what they believe happens to people after death..I’ve only come across the church brainwashing responses of heaven if you’re good, hell if you’re bad. I can’t buy into that line of thinking and have decided that one just ceases to exist and there’s nothing beyond decomposition after death. As an intelligent and open minded individual, what’s your take on that subject?
I think the most honest answer I can give is “I don’t know” and I haven’t seen anything that has led me to conclude anyone else does either. In a line of pure speculation and probability… I think It’s much more probable that our brains simply turn off when we die and that’s that. I’ve never seen anything to convince me of the existence of an afterlife.
Just thinking of what an existence would be like without a body boggles my mind. I am my body. I can say I’m sitting in this chair and not standing in the doorway because my body is sitting in a chair and not standing in a doorway.
It’s all great food for thought, but at the end of the day I just don’t know. Which I think is a perfectly acceptable position on the matter given the lack of evidence or even the means or a method for gathering evidence.
