Afterlife

I would love to hear your thoughts on whether or not you think there is an afterlife. I lost someone very dear to me and have been trying to find some peace. I'm not a religous person, I fall squarely in the not sure category when it comes to God, heaven, etc.

I'm a Christian and believe there is life after death. I'm not sure
what else to say at the moment. I don't want you to think I'm getting
preachy. Sorry about your loss.

There is a book, I like, on the subject giving the Biblical
view by Randy Alcorn titled Heaven.

You said you were not religious, but if you are interested in
a Christian answer, it is a good book.

I don't think so.

What exactly moves on? Your thoughts? Conscious? If thats what we think, what is keeping it from moving on right now? There are explanations for "out of body experiences" so that's not it.

For those that have heard stories of people have visions, how is that different than a dream?

We are all made of atoms, when we die our atoms are returned to the cosmos. Some of those atoms will set off into regions we have never seen, others will be reused to form a new objects/life.

I couldn't think of anything more beautiful and reason enough to make this life even more meaningful.

If there is life after death (so silly to even say it), what is the point of this life? Is the next life more important? Is there life after that one??

The best answer is "unlikely", and that's because we are still discovering more and more about our realm and ourselves. But until there's even a shred of evidence, enjoy this life.

I don't think there is, but I'll never know for sure. It's the same to me as god or santa, if you believe in it, it exists for you. But that does not mean it exists for everyone. If it gives you peace of mind to believe in such a thing as the afterlife, by all means do so.

I don't know if there is, so I try to make the best of this life here.

If there is a heaven, I hope to see all my doggies up there.

Well, if it does exist, wouldn't you eventually know fore sure?

Regina-

There definitely is.


I've met so many people who've pierced the veil by having NDEs experiences, and came back to tell all about it.

These are not whackos who live in a van down by the river, but sensible educated people, with professions, so on and so forth.

I have one such friend, Jeff Olsen. His book is found here, on Amazon, it has great reviews:

I Knew Their Hearts: The Amazing True Story of a Journey Beyond the Veil to Learn the Silent Language of the Heart: Jeff Olsen, Lee Nelson: 9781599559865: Amazon.com: Books

Also, go see or rent: Heaven is For Real:

At a price, of course.

Sorry to be so cynical about it.

I feel the same way about proselytizing antitheists.

Christian marketing is a very real, very profitable thing.
