    Most people's opinion's on this topic are worthless. Since they are basically re-iterating what they were told when they were young, and the people who told them are just reiterating what they were told when they were young and the people that told them.... you get the picture =)

    I agree. I was taught that there is heaven after earth and I still believe it. I'm afraid if I didn't go to a catholic primary school and high school, I would think quite the contrary

    if you look at it scientifically, youll probably see that we will not exist. Our brain makes us use our senses, and operate our organs. the heart makes the brain go. Without the heart, its simple, no more blood flows to your brain. Thus all of you organs go out, and since there is no blood flowing, bacteria will decompose you.
    That is our defenition of death. Your still there, exept you dont know it and you are rotting.

    Is there any evidence to there NOT being an afterlife?

    >>Is there any evidence to there NOT being an afterlife?

    It is common and accepted practice to assume that the lack of evidence to support a theory suggests more about its lack of existance than it does about its existance. One doesnt assume that because there is nothing to disprove an argument that the argument is valid. An argument must have valid points in its favour before it can be considered legitimate.

    This discussion is silly. We've done this a million times before.

    As evidence that the Bible is divinely inspired-the literary brilliance in parts of the Gospel surpasses anything written by man
    I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

    Windows XP consists of 32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company, that can't stand 1 bit of competition.

    It all comes down to faith (a belief in things we cannot prove). Science is no exception, as it is initially based on the assumption of the uniformity of nature.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?

    If you look at it scientifically, you should see that we have no proof or even hint in any direction. So no theory can be said to be scientifically more probable. I don't know what to believe in. To each his own. I guess as doing good deeds won't hurt your afterlife in any way, and you cannot change it in any other way, doing a lot of good things and believing whatever makes you happy is the perfect choice.

    Its simple, you come back again as another person.
    Back hair is the proof for this:
    Lots of back hair means you were evil.
    A bit means you were still pretty bad.
    Not much means you were an ok person.
    The only problem with this theory, is how does the population keep rising? Where are all these new people coming from?

    "Science is no exception, as it is initially based on the assumption of the uniformity of nature."

    The only thing science assumes is that we are not in the Matrix.

    Whilst it would nice if there were an after-life, science makes it rampantly clear that there is not.

    ..... probably not, you probably just don't want to see it.

    Science shows that the brain is basically hugely complicated computer. If the brain is "everything" as science says it is, there is no room for an "after-life".

    After death, is no different to before birth.
