What Do You Beleive Happens After Death?

This is a question I am certain we all ponder. Please share what you beleive.

Personally I beleive we go into a state of nothingness. Our physical bodies break down and thus we have no sense of reality or anything. I beleive there is no "afterlife", just the decompisition of our bodies only to renew the earth and start a new life. I know it's fairly synical, but that is the only physical explination that we know of for what happens after death.

Thanks everyone.

synical


















I don't want to know. I don't want to think about it. When I think about it I get into a funk. I think being terrified of death is an irrevocable piece of my consciousness. The last time I came close to dying in a car accident, I remember just thinking 'No, no, no, no, no, this cannot happen, no, no, no, no, no,' up until the car stopped rolling. And that pretty much sums it up for me. You can't prove anything.

All living things die eventually, from the smallest life forms which never even have any awareness of their own being to us fully conscious mammals. There's no indication our death is any different from theirs. Everything stops. Frightening prospect I suppose but on the upside at least you won't ever realise being dead.

I am offended by the world isajeep.
 
I used to think we'd all go to heaven (roads paved with gold) or hell (fire and brimstone) but I now think it will be like before we were born.....nothingness which does seem scary but it's not like I was sitting around in 1150 in agony waiting to be born in 1980.

I remember seeing programs about people dying and coming back to life after a few minutes and recounting their experience but I'm not too sure how accurate it is or what they mean. Also some church service I went to a pastor reported a near death experience he had as a kid and he was convinced he was on the way to hell because he was in agony and someone spoke to him.

If we had a "soul" than why the fuck can we not remember BEFORE we were born. It just does not make a whole lot of sense to me. I think those "near death experiences" are a combination of the dieing brains last thoughts and the lack of the ability to reason. Kind of like how a chicken can still walk with its head chopped off. We are still animals at the heart of it after all.

what does a soul have to do with memories which are recorded in the brain?

A person is a walking collection of chemicals that just so happens to be aware of itself. After they die, they don't change very much chemically, but they cease being aware of themselves. The next consciousness, or self-awareness, comes when a new aggregation of chemicals becomes aware of itself. If you're a mammal or most other types of animal, a new baby could mostly made from things the parents ate.
There's probably several orders of magnitude more insects and things to every mammal, so quite possibly you'll have many short lives as those before moving up to something bigger. Though you probably won't observe the passage of time between lives.

nothing happens except you start to decompose. I'll probably be incinerated, so no worm food for me.

If this is true you wouldn't remember the past existence. Just as you wouldn't observe the time between lives.

It's a nice thought... but too much hoping, I think. There's way too much matter in the universe than what ends up as the few pounds that make up our brain. What about the ocean? The rocks? The soil? Worm food as stated is infinitesimally more likely.

I assume the experience of being dead seems much like the time before you were conceived from your perspective. I'd really like to believe that there is more but that seems highly improbable. If there is anything else I plan on being pleasantly surprised by what I find instead of stunned and angry that my preconceived notions were wrong, assuming it is even possible that anything of myself in this life carries over into whatever is beyond.

All the stars are dark and dead, the black holes have diminished to nothingness, all physical matter still remaining will have been scattered to the farthest reaches of the now completely dark universe, the only thing likely still happening is the ever accelerating expansion of the universe, and at some point the very bonds that hold atoms together will begin to break down and all physical matter comes apart and then there is nothing. The universe will die, decompose, and eventually cease to be at all just like we do.

Most likely nothing; but I also think it's possible/at least interesting to consider that you are born again but you don't have any knowledge of having a previous existence. I suppose you would have to have the same type of personality and personal character or you might as well just call yourself a different person D:
