Now, many people wonder what will happen once we die. Many religions have answers to what happens to us when we die. People also have their own spin on things. Now even for nonreligious people, do you believe in any sort of an afterlife?

no. And I'm glad there is none. Things that are good are usually good because they have an end.

What proof is there in no afterlife, if I may ask?

Belief in an afterlife is for believers. No belief in an afterlife is for disbelievers. Easy enough to write, yet deep enough to ponder upon.

It's traditional for people asserting something exists to provide proof.Skepticism is the sensible position of saying I'll keep an open mind and believe in something after you show me some proof. So asking for proof that you don't believe in something until there is proof is.... well...

 

Anyway the afterlife does exist and it's scientifically provable. The human body contains sources of radiation, thus has an afterlife. (how long the half life is I'm not too sure though).

no it does not exist, but if it did I would much rather go to the hell version as all the cool people are there I wouldnt wan t to go to heaven and hang oout with all the boring people and goody two shoes.  All the cool people, the people who have pushed society forwards, and the great leaders would be in hell according to most religions, as would most peopel with even half intresting lives.  And sure Hitler and Stalin would be there too but just like in prisons the worst scum are on the lowest pekin g order and i could beat them up for fun.

i hope there will be an afterlife cause if there's none, it'll be sad. we only live for a certain number of years and that's it.

but if there is, i don't understand how it will work.

where do people come from? since the population has always been increasing

where do people go? won't the afterlife world get overpopulated if people keep going there after they die?

I believe in an afterlife personally because I believe in God, but I think it's pretty presumptious of people to say that if you don't believe in one you're going to Hell.  No mortal can truly know that.

I believe that there is an afterlife, and I belive it because im a Christian. But, i am searching my faith and questioning beliefs, as i believe every religious believer should do. The question is, is the mind tied to the body? Is there actually a difference in body and soul? Is the human mind and human ideas more than just brain waves and senses? I cannot be sure.

That's a great way to piss off fundis: "so only [insert random sect here]ers go to heaven? In that case I'd rather go to hell than going to a heaven full of people like you."

I believe in the afterlife.  If you think about it for a second.. Why would we be here if there was no plan for us once we died.  We are eternal beings.  Just think about that.

 I don't know if there is or isn't and it is impossible to imagine what not existing would be like if there isn't.

I don't believe there is. When you die you rot, and if you're lucky your body might provide nutrition for some pretty flowers

I'm an atheist, I don't believe in an afterlife at any circumstance. I don't believe we are here for any reason, other than to reproduce. I don't think we are eternal beings. I believe the idea of an afterlife was created by naive and primitive cavemen with a fear of death. It is a comfort if you have a crappy life, that you think you will go to somewhere nice when you die I don't much like religion, and this is but one aspect that I find totally irrational. I think religion is totally superflous(sp?) in the western world in the 21st century.

Sorry, but I had my first visit by Jehovas Witnesses today, and they are without doubt the stupidest, most narrow-minded people I have ever met. Just needed to vent out a bit. I hope all of you who believe in an afterlife aren't a Jehovas Witness

I do not believe in the existence of soul therefore I believe there is no afterlife.

Many non-living objects also emit radiation.Does that prove that they have a life {or an afterlife}.

I'm an agnostic, so I really don't know.

I guess we will see it - or probably won't - after death.

Who knows? Maybe we are already dead!

Hmm this is a touchy issue because I believe life constitutes only physical existence. If there is such a thing as reincarnation, where you are born again, go through culturization, maturity and then alll life's troubles endlessly then I have to say that's pretty scary to even ponder. The thing is that if it is so you sadly lose your personality each time you die as well as memory. So when you are born again(if you're smart) you'll be scratching your head again and again and again thinking wether there's life after death since you never knew you previously existed. So the best thing that there can be is an eternal sleep or a realization in a higher dimension??
