I do hope that there's no Life after Death...

Hell be it if that's the case, we may even have to go through homework and such in that life.

Well, if we're buried in the ground, then we'll become food for various lifeforms and provide energy for them, or if we're cremated various gases will be created from our bodies and become part of the atmosphere, if that's the kind of existence you're talking about. But if you mean proof of an afterlife, then how can anyone prove it unless they've died for a while and came back to life to explain their observations?

I did type that in English right?

Proper spelling?

maybe my Keyboard isn't set to US en anymore.....

Maybe my eyes are seeing English but my keyboard is typing in German.

Or maybe i am a sarcastic asshole.

either way check the history channel.

Maybe it was SciFi channel, they have been doing the stupid reality TV shit also.
That might be where I saw it.

Well if you want to prove it just slam your face into your monitor until you can move anymore then you should have the answers your looking for but sadly i don't think you will be able to give us a report of your findings after you smash your head in and breath in the chemical dust from the monitor.
But its all in the name of Science right.
The search of truth.

hmmmmm

better yet just ignore what i've said. I haven't gotten alot of sleep in the last 3 days so my mind is a bit scrambled (like my eggs, with cheese and bacon because I like to eat the faces off cute animals.)
Anyway back to you Sam!

/me

Terrant slowly walks away mumbling about eggs and ghosts while contemplating the possible comfort level of a G-String. (how anyone can wear those things is a total mystery to me.)

1. I did look there, and the only thing they have about life after death is several documentaries about how certain cultures viewed the afterlife.

2.I don't care about their opinion, I care about yours. Or at least I did at some point.

3. No hablo ingles.

@ Cuddlebuns Lulz

opinions are just that. Though they might have some factual basis they are mostly guess work.
I believe what i believe because of personal experiences that tell me there is something more to this world that what we are told to believe.

Life after death....... is a joke.

Once you die that is it your body is gone you can never live again.

But there could be another form of existence.....
has you said before about becoming a source of energy for other living things once you die. But thats just the body.

But what is the purpose of a body.

Energy.

electrical energy to be exact.
The body is nothing more then a means to store and create energy.
electrical impulses starting in the brain are transmitted through your body telling it what to do and how to do it.

So do you think your energy is contain inside your body ?
Or can it move from within to without?
(that doesn't read right in my head but ....meh i'm not one to be proper about English)

anyway,

There is a guy who thought it would be a cool thing to implant a micro chip on the nerve of his wrist.
With this implant he can control a robotic arm has if it was his own. (and a robotic face but i thought the arm/ hand was cooler.) (This guy also was talking about implanting another chip between the lobes of his brain but i don't think he will be able to do that anytime soon.......)

Seem our energy can power more then just our minds and bodies.

Now think about what happens to us during heightened emotional states
The chemical changes that occurs within us to increase sensory perception.
Maybe even increase the flow of impulses through the body.
Changing brain waves and what not.

Would you consider death a heightened emotional state?
now what if your feeling were so strong when your energy leaves the failing body it might latch on to something that isn't resistant to our energy ? like wood for instance. (Stone is another material but not as porous has wood.)

instead of being contained within a body you are now contained within something made of wood.
but with out the means to create more energy your stuck slowly fading away.
whats left is resentment for the living and a hollow feeling of betrayal.

Ba i think i am making this slightly more complicated then it needs to be.
ADHD makes it hard to make coherent thoughts out of the jumble of things rolling around in my head.
Normal people could never understand...........

But how can you make such a claim about the purpose of the collective "we" if some choose to neither participate in the reproduction cycle nor care for the young? You could say that the failure of certain people to perform these functions is a failure to perform their purpose, but then I'd have to ask what constitutes "purpose" for you.

As far as I'm concerned, life has no knowable objective purpose. While the concept of having the freedom to decide one's own "purpose" (or to not do so at all) can be troubling in its lack of absolute guidance, it can also be liberating, as no blueprint (again, at least not a knowable one) for one's life exists before his birth to decide who he is and what he does.

Well... Aren't ghosts reincarnations of other people? Basically, I believe more in rebirth.

Well, I admit that I did generalise it, but I don't think that I was so wrong about it, as I am relating everything with nature. And in nature most, if not all animals are there to reproduce themselves and take care of the offspring, or not even take care of the offspring, but in general they do. And as I consider us human beings, despite all this civilisation stuff, as animals I would say that from my point of view my theory certainly does to a certain extent apply to most cases. I would call this the given purpose for every healthy individual. But we all know that a lot of people did find other purposes in life to go on. Purpose for me, means something that forces us, or helps us to live on, despite the daily ''tragedies'' that are accompanying us, a purpose that lets us being a part of a big puzzle of life, could almost say ''destiny''.

Interesting. The latter part is sure somewhat true, but I think that the surrounding in which an individual was born into are certainly influencing one's life. For example, if you were born as the first son of the King, you would most probably become his successor, or not? So somewhat some people's lifes are already formed/predestined before they were even born. >.>

I believe, and I don't say I'm right, that the moment we die... We die. No more afterlife..

But saying "most animals reproduce and continue the species" is different from saying "most animals are there to reproduce themselves." One is an action, one is a reason for action. The distinction is important.

Your definition of purpose seems subjective, since it's "something that forces us, or helps us to live on." There's nothing wrong with that, but it's very different from the objective purpose of reproduction you presented at first.

I agree that the influence of one's circumstances cannot be ignored, but I don't necessarily agree that they are deterministic. (I'm not really against determinism, but I think its value in both theory and practice is limited.) In the case of being born to the King, it may be probable that one will be his successor, but it is not certain. One could reject such a life regardless of the consequences. I don't think we should look at the actuality (the results) so much as the potential; the mere ability of the individual to realize and subsequently choose between two options renders his circumstances less important.

Life after death... no... I believe that you will either go to heaven or hell...
and as for ghosts... they are just lost souls who have unfinished businesses...

Currently, there is no way to either support or refute the possibility of life after death. Obviously, this has been the topic of discussion dating far before any of us was born and for good reason. We as sentient beings have tried to come up with a way to explain what happens to us after we die from what we perceived, and different people have come up with different theories. Some people say that we simply go back into the earth as part of the nitrogen cycle, so that would refute this argument if it's true, but the problem is that there is no way to disprove that there is an actual existence outside of the body (i.e. someone's soul going to heaven.) At the same time, if the soul is independent from the mind and body, then how is it possible for us to have some sort of consciousness or awareness of who we are without our minds?
