Your still trying to convince yourself there is no spirit life ..
Enjoy the dirt
I'm not even religious at all, and kind of undecided on the whole afterlife thing, but sometimes I wonder if these militant atheists (the ones who get really 'Aspergy' about it and flog the topic over and over) fear the idea of nothingness and subconsciously hope that someday, after enough prodding, somebody will come along and present them with some convincing evidence that will put their mind at ease. I'm not saying that this is definitely the case with LesMisanthrope, but I've encountered people like this more than a handful of times in my life and it makes me wonder.

I'd say the same thing if they flogged the topic to death.

So we do not bury our dead? Do we not decompose after death? On what grounds?
See you are wrong for asserting otherwise in the face of everything you see and know.
Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment.

I believe that nothingness may be YOUR future......but as for myself and other believers on this site we will toast to our awakening when that day arises.
