    Everything is possible, but why do you need an afterlife if you can live forever?

    As we don't know .. yes, it's possible.

    Perhaps your question is .. Do you belive in an afterlife?

    So? ... do you?

    Because some conditionals have false antecedents.

    Well the chemical reactions in the brain are kept reacting by the lungs and heart pumping blood all around. I presume that if one of the two stops, the chemical reactions will stop as well.

    So no. No after life.

    PS: The lung doesn't actually pump the blood around... just in case you're wondering. No, the lungs are there for the benefit of mongese.

    Buddha spoke about "Nirvana".....a state of conciousness I can guess.He never spoke about God.

    Why do you need a life if you can have an afterlife?

    No, I don't think so.

    Is it possible?

    Probably just in the movies.

    Now, if your talkin Heaven, Paradise, etc.....then I would say yes, but only after Jesus returns for His church, and after the Ressurection.

    But as far as floating around like a ghost....No, I don't believe so. There are stories of ghost's, etc. and unexplained phenomena....but I believe a lot of it is fraud, and some unexplained or seemingly genuine phenomena is most likely demonic activity...but what do I know? That is just my opinion.

    Is there an afterlife? Humans have always hoped so.
    Ultimately, without afterlife, there seems to be an utter pointlessness to existence. For millennia people have dreamed up countless gods to get around this painful realisation. Religious people ALWAYS believe there is an afterlife - it is, of course, the main reason for believing in their particular god in the first place.

    There is a part of me that wants to believe it is true - it would be such a comfortable feeling to know we can live meaningful lives and that at the end our consciousness will live on, maybe to reside with a greater being or perhaps to be somehow re-incarnated and spend more time as a mortal.

    But there is a greater part of me that knows that wanting something to be true and it actually being true are two different things. I am absolutely convinced that there is, in fact, no afterlife and that the end of life is really the end. We may live on in some way - through our genetic code or metaphorically in people's memories if we achieve greatness but that is all.

    It is in some ways much harder to be an atheist and to live outside the comfort zone than to believe in god and eternal life (eternal life??? how boring could that become!). But as I can't seem to force myself into self delusion I suppose I'm stuck with it.

    Interestingly - does anyone believe in afterlife without any kind of god involved? How would that work?

    In a way it is just best to believe that there is an after life. If one is an atheist, then what is the point of life? One speck on a planet in vast space. Would it not matter if death came tomorrow or in fifty years? An atheist may say that we should enjoy life while we can. It's difficult to enjoy life if it is pointless. Sensory pleasures become unfulfilling after awhile.

    As it is difficult to know definitively one way or the other, why not just believe that there is an after life? The idea of a good God will give some moral guidelines, and this life will be more enjoyable. Either way it is a win win situation.
