Supposedly DMT floods the brain, but I've read papers that dispute this

If you believe you never die so there's that

Remember what it was like before you were born?

That’s what it’s gonna be like.

Because you know it’s true as well.


I’m sorry, but I don’t. So I ask you again. How do you know you cease to exist when you die? What evidence do you base your opinion (it is still just your opinion in case you didn’t realize) on that you know for a fact we cease to exist after we die?

I’ll ask you the same question I asked the other guy...

How do you know?

(I love when I ask people questions they can’t answer so they just downvote my post instead. Tells me I rustled their jimmies)

The smartest people in the world do not know if it is true


We have a very shallow surface level understanding of consciousness.Scientists know about as much about the universe as they do consciousness. We have no idea where consciousness and awareness comes from, what circumstances are necessary for it to exist, where it can exist...pretty much every substantial question about consciousness has no definitive answer

Push thoughts about religion and heaven and hell aside. There are more possibilities to "life" after death than battling religious philosophies

See, this is exactly the kind of of response I fully expected but was trying to avoid.

Missed my point entirely.

Watch "The OA" on Netflix. It's about near death experiences and what happens when you die. None of it is proven or even close to factual but a good watch.

not remembering anything immediately after you die does not prove consciousness does not continue after death. There are obviously switches that can turn consciousness on and off. Additionally there are people that die that do remember things. I should see no reason why their account should be taken with more a grain of salt. Additionally complete memory is not a requirement for active consciousness. So the same thing can be said for before you were born.

I flatlined for a few minutes from internal hemorrhaging.

Is it though? I lost consciousness before I flatlined. There are other people though who have died and had very different experiences than I did. How do you account for their experiences?

Those who "come back" are required to sign a non disclosure agreement stating they saw nothing and know nothing.

A desire for greater understanding. Attention seekers. People who are afraid of the void of nothingness so they convince themselves otherwise. People looking to be “right” so they contrive something that “only they” and a few “others like them” experience so they can just say nope, you’re wrong. I saw it. With no real tangible proof of what they saw/experienced.

We came from nothing. We will return to nothing.

So you're accusing them of lying. What facts do you base your accusation on?

How do you know? You’ve still not answered this.

Sounds like you're a lawyer, but then you say
quote:

objective evidence


Seems like you mean empirical evidence. Testimony in court from a first-hand observer (the person who claims to be "brought back") would be admissible to prove the matter asserted.

What you're looking for is video or DNA evidence of an afterlife. I'm pretty sure that's unlikely, which may explain why they call religion "faith."

What facts do you base your acceptance of their word as truth?

We’re both speculating.

It’s the most logical answer. We live. We die. The world moves on.
