Has anyone had any proof that there is life after death or is it just wishful thinking.

If there was proof I think we'd have heard about it.

If there is no life after death it seems so pointless being on this planet, especially for some countries that experience poverty all their life. For what!

If there is, I know a lot of people are destined for hell (if it exists) - the main thing that annoys me most about religion is the selfish aspect of everything building up to this supposed life after death. The world would be a better place if we concentrated on improving the lives of those living here and now. Although my idea of hell is a place filled with religious nutters

IMHO its all here, Heaven, Hell, Good, Evil, Angels, Devils etc
Its what you make it baby!
No use waiting around for a paradise once you've carked it.
Live it now, it may be unfair at times, painful too, but it's now, not later.
I don't want to be defined by my beliefs but by my actions.
I get it wrong lots of times but that's humanity, flawed and wonderful.
Gosh, I better have a little lie down now.....nurse.....nurse!

I don't see why there should be a life after death.

I don't like the idea of ceasing to exist, but I'm not going to believe in something just because it's comforting. People say "But if there's no life after death, what are we here for?". Maybe we're not here for anything, other than to live.

And if there was an afterlife, would I be the age I was when I died, or would I become some sort of 'spiritual essence', in which case, would it be me any more?

I think I need to get out more.

When my father died many years ago many of the relations took cuttings of off a rose he grew. When these grew they were called and still are after all these years Dads rose. This gave a lot of comfort to the family. The most definite form of after life is in your children and grandchildren who have inherited your genes so in theory you live on in them.

Nice story Pope.

it's not easy to believe in life after death if you believe in science, it just does not compute. The Buddhists talk about living in the "Now" so i have alot of time for that. Religion , my religion says very clearly there is life after death, i on a personal level may doubt this but when we bury our dead i like the ritual , the community and the prayers , we mourn the dead but pray in someway or another we can experience each other again. What's so wrong with that? it works for me. I am no evangelists. Believe what you want.
cliffitie by religious nutters ? would you like to qualify that grand sweeping statement?

Isn't death just an essential part of evolution. The species and life itself require constant reinvention with new life forms emerging and extinctions carrying off those that through no fault of their own can no longer function. I've no idea if consciousness survives our demise, but I'd be very (pleasantly) surprised if it does.

There is no evidence at all that life after death exist in the sense that a personality will live on. Those with 'faith' that think there is are dangerous delusionists with weak and easily influenced minds.

However, one's essence will live on in your offspring (genes) and the impression you leave on others (memes).

Deelite your so clever and amazing and intelligent and not at all weak or easy to mislead , you believe only on good judgement and evidence, you NEVER get it wrong, it must so awful for you to live amongst weak easily influenced people.......or are you just smug and very very self important? ( I thought about using a full stop but pedant may be listening)

God forgive me i am rather nasty on this forum i should take some medicine and chill.

I'm grateful for Nevillman starting this discussion and being so generous as to refer back to me. My delay in saying anything... more
