What do you think? Do you believe in the afterlife or do you think that there is nothing after death and we just stop existing?

The same thing will happen as in all living creatures. We die, we rot.... that’s it
Do we really believe that we somehow live on? All those billions of people who have died since humans first walked on this earth somehow live on?
We have one life and then it ends.... no matter what those religious nutters try and tell us

Oblivion. Like before you were born, except you aren't born again.

yes, I believe in afterlife so we either go to hell (for eternal punishment or pay off our sins) or go to heaven (for eternal happiness and be with god and our family and friends)

there has to be some sort of afterlife or this life would just be useless and unfair because for example if a child dies in a car crash, don't they have the same right as us to live and cherish life so what would happen to them?

If a child dies in a car crash then they are dead... they are as dead as someone who dies in their bed aged 95. They may have been unlucky and unfortunate but that is the chance we all take when we are born.. we don’t deserve to live after death just because of an accident. We die and then that is all

All the evidence suggests that consciousness is the result of brain activity, this stops when you die, so probably no afterlife. Although, we don't know an awful amount about our consciousness and I've never died, so :dontknow:

I believe in an afterlife. I will present my limited understanding of it.
Those who think that after death we will simply cease to exist, our bodies will rot and that’s it, should also think about how life actually came about. If you want to put it scientifically, then think about how we as human beings came about. What does science say? Billions of years of evolution! - from microscopic organisms to the complex beings that we are today. Then why is it not possible for us to be raised again? Looking at the very nature surrounding us we can get clues. In winter when the trees shed their leaves, I am amazed to think how a ‘lifeless’ tree will soon become full of life again. It is in front of us. Science is amazing because no matter where you look or how much more into detail you go, you realise that life is too complex and amazingly genius to simply be an accident. I am not a Physicist, but trying to understand bits of quantum physics, I understood that life really is beyond our comprehension - we have not fully understood everything, even though we are at our ‘peak intelligence’.

We will be raised again, but we probably cannot fully understand how. When you die, you go to an intermediate space, before you go to heaven and hell. That intermediate space is probably a long period, but when we are awake from that, it will seem to us as if just a short amount of time has passed - just like when we wake up from sleep, but in reality more time has gone by....

We are here to nurture our soul. Our soul will be given a new body or become a body. If our soul is not sensitive to the pleasures of connecting with God and doing good, then we are putting our future bodies at disadvantage. The pleasures of the next life will be more intense. Not talking about materialistic stuff, as next life will be different but better than our imagination if we qualify for heaven, otherwise hell is worse. Everything is in the hands of God and God knows best. This life is nothing compared to what is to come.

I think it's very vain that us humans think we're something more than other creations and deserve an after life and they don't. It states that god created all, so why would he give us an after life and not animals?

I don't believe in any gods fyi, it's just something other humans do because they don't have an answer for everything so they turn to religion and here say.

You have no understanding of it, as there is zero evidence for one.

(Original post by Indiana.Jones)

There is a difference between something not being impossible and there being evidence for it. There is none for an afterlife. There *is* evidence that, as parts of our brain die, we lose the person that we were.

Simplistic, religious "thinking".

You have ZERO evidence for this, yet you're sure of it. That is a problem.

NO evidence for a soul (you can't even define it in physical terms), or a god.

Indoctrinated nonsense. It's as likely as that invisible, yellow unicorn that's following you.

I think if you were raised again, it still wouldn't be you. If you have matter, it can exist in different forms, but it doesn't have to make up a conscious entity and if it did our memories won't be restored and our mental existence wouldn't be the same.
