Advantages: Live your life to the max as it's the only one
Disadvantages: Side effects of disbelief include a lifetime of pain and suffering
I am almost positive there is no life after death. Of course, you can never be 100 percent positive, as i'm not even 100% sure i was born a male, i just hope so....
People forget a lot of the time that life after death is a very new idea. About 10,000 years ago, humans were just left after death by their relatives to rot into the ground on the spot they died at, which you could argue is pretty much proof that thye just saw it as a perfectly normal occurance, accepted it, and moved on. It was only very recently, that people were buried, or left with various treasures to take with them.
In my opinion, it should not even be a question of is there life after death, but more of why did humanity have to start acting as if there was? Maybe closer relationships over time made us feel too connected to those around us to let go so coldly? Maybe it made us grasp onto a hope that there was more?
I definately feel that in modern day society one of the reasons behind religious belief is to give people hope, as accepting our life for what it no doubt is could be a little depressing?
My main feeling is why should there be? When we die our entire self rots into the ground and the energy is passed on to various other life, so why do people believe that there is some soul which lives on for all eternity? to be it just seems very strange.
I am fully aware that some people may find this controversial to say, and i hope i haven't caused any offence, but more a good discussion point to base thoughts on.
Summary: Life is fun, look how much fun i'm having...see! :)
