Is there an afterlife?

Just curious as to your thoughts.

Personally I wonder if all the matter that our bodies are made of eventually get sucked into some black hole and scattered into another universe, eventually over aeons of time rearranging itself to form some other life that would be you, or perhaps there really is a Heaven and Hell? Or maybe it's just a void after we die. Is it like being blind, deaf, and numb forever? Just somehow experiencing absolute oblivion? Perhaps not experiencing at all?

Obviously none of us living folk can know for sure, but I'm just curious as to what your thoughts are.

There is objective, absolutely definitive proof that there is an afterlife.

Why would you even bother debating this?

I'm kind of curious about that too. I can't imagine this thread ending well.
Well maybe.

But anyways, I do.
Shoots, if you believe ghosts exist, then there has to be some form of an afterlife.

^^ Well you've certainly got a point there. Well, what do you think that afterlife is? This doesn't have to be a debate necessarily. Just wondering what all of you people in the Pit think. Is it blackness? Heaven/Hell? A dream? Another life, where you are completely unaware of this one?

Well as a christian, I'd of course like to think there's a heaven. But I also accept there is no proving or disproving it. So I guess this is more of a "We'll find out eventually" answer.

Hooray, somebody religious on this site who accepts that it can't be proved or disproved!


Anyway, my view was pretty simple - I don't personally believe, or expect, there to be a conscious afterlife and I imagine it to be similar to the stages of sleep where you aren't dreaming/conscious, and instead time passes by at a relatively infinite speed you can't be aware of (like when you awake and can't believe several hours have gone by because you were napping, and didn't have a conscious dream, so it feels like you've opened your eyes and hours have passed).

But, after reading the latest issue of New Scientist there was a few scientists in there who claim that, to some extent, people do appear to live on for a certain time after they are medically dead - not claiming they live on infinitely or in a form of afterlife, but - where people have had their heart stopped and are in a state where their brain shows no functional activity, have been brought back on the operating table and described an experience of what was happening during the time they should have been completely unconscious and incapable of having any thoughts or dreams.

Doesn't prove anything, and they're currently trying to test these ideas (as well as testing out of body experiences by putting things on high shelves in the operating theatre and asking patients if they saw anything, though this doesn't appear to have had any valid results in favour of that idea, and I'm not sure I could believe something like that without irrefutable proof) but it's an interesting concept... would normally dismiss it as inane rubbish, but a few medical experts seemed to be considering or at least humouring the posibility and it could be a world-changing concept if they can prove human's have a conscious experience for a few hours after death until the brain decays beyond a certain point, for example. At the very least, I guess you could explain it as something people imagine has happened when they regain consciousness as their brain tries to explain what happened and why they feel terrible and as though they've been hit by a bus
