A rather positive claim my friend. I didn't know you died and found proof of this. I'm just DYING to know what other things you learnt but seriously the most reasonable claim here would be "It is most likely that there is no after life" or "I don't know but nothing points to there being an afterlife".


So am I supposed to believe there is a possibility there is a big giant unicorn out there somewhere because people claimed it?

"I know that there are no big giant unicorns" is an irrational claim, yes. You're claiming to know something that you do not know. The universe is large and there is a possibility that life has evolved on other planets, why something resembling a unicorn would evolve I don't know but there are a near infinite array of different environments to evolve to. There is also the possibility of other universes outside of this one, as well.

Edit: I don't believe there to be "big giant unicorns" that doesn't mean that I claim that "There are no "big giant unicorns".

I tried my very best to believe in some sort of religion but I can't. I just.. I can't. I tried. But no matter how hard I try, it just all seem like some sort of made of story.

I believe we all turn into compost for Earth when we die. It isn't sad, if anything it's a relief.

I couldn't imagine a singular paradise that would satisfy each and every human being, or even just every person within a particular religion, so one would imagine that if there is a Heaven or some equivalent it would have to vary for each person to truly be a paradise. And even a particular person might change their idea of what paradise means over time, meaning what constitutes Heaven for an individual soul would have to be malleable instead of fixed for it to truly be a paradise.

I'll change my statements when afterlife believers can prove that the afterlife exists or even if they can prove that "souls" exist. They haven't been able to, and they never will because such things don't exist.
If people claim something exists, they have to prove it, otherwise it's not real. You can't ask people who don't believe in it to believe there is a "possibility", otherwise any claims involving any ridiculous things must be considered a "possibility".

The universe is a huge place with a lot of possibilities, but supernatural and magic aren't one of them. In this universe, all things abide by the laws of physics; there are no fire-breathing creatures, no gold-keeping leprechauns or unicorns' blood that give immortality.

To believe in the possibilities of supernatural and things like afterlife is to be delusional as they provide absolutely no benefits to oneself or the advancement of the human race.
