I see people say "there is no proof that there is anything after death" all the time on these boards and even in real life. So where is the proof that there is nothing after death?

Have you ever seen or experienced "nothing"? No, there is only this "something" that we all experience. For all we know there is only this "something" and no such thing as "nothing".

I believe it takes a bigger leap in logic to conclude that there is nothing after death than there is to conclude there is something because no one has ever experienced nothing and lived to tell about it. All anyone knows is this something we experience right now.

So to those who believe there is nothing after death, where is your proof? My proof that there is something after death is right here and now within this something we have always experienced.

There is no proof of either. There is as much proof of "nothing" after death, as there is of "something" after death. Until we arrive and KNOW, all we have is opinion. No one needs proof for their opinion.

I have to agree with you here, enlightened. There is no void, no darkness, no "nothing" after death.

Guess we just dont know till it happens

Let me ask you this though, which senses do you plan on experience all this something with, after you die??

I would have to disagree. There is no proof of nothing but all the proof for something.

Though I do see where you're coming from even if I disagree.

Good lawd, it's a miracle! We agree on something for once.

What proof of something? There is no proof of anything after death.

We have plenty of proof—cadaver farms, morgues, even cemeteries. We know exactly what happens to people when they die.

There is proof of 'nothing' after death, it's called brain death. Once the brain shuts off, no more signals, no more life. It's not a leap in logic at all, we have no contact with 'ghosts' or some variation of humans that exist after their physical life is over. If we could talk to our deceased brethren, then there would be a good argument for life after death, because any record of this happening is extremely suspect, pranks/jokes/cons/swindlers/fraudsters/charlatan, it's not nearly enough to support an argument.

If you have actual, cogent contact with people after death, logic would dictate we have something to look forward to. If this were the way the world was, it would be as easy as setting up a scientific study and documenting people's interactions after they die. Boom = proof of life after death.

We don't have that however, so we look at the nature of life, and humans, mammals, animals... everything-is born, lives, grows old, dies. As the tellomeres shorten in an organism's life, it loses the ability to keep its cells from deteriorating, and soon death is the end result. After that, there is no physical signs of life whatsoever. There is no leap in logic, the vessel that person was in is dead, there's nothing to suggest that decaying carbon has any life in, or the ability to transfer life, as "life" is the chemical reactions happening in the brain, and the body it resides in.

The leap in logic happens when man made religions are telling you otherwise.

i think the burden of proof lies within the "something" camp.

If you take all and every measuring technique (EEG, Heartbeat, mri! whatever) to a dying patient.
You will find...nothing after death. No breathing, no heartbeat no brain function. (sounds silly, but its the medical definition of death).

Thats proof enough for me. If anyone disagrees: proof me wrong.

Proving the existence of nothingness is impossible--there is literally nothing to prove--therefore your premise to try and make it sound like nothingness is an impossibility is illogical and flawed at the start. You need to realize that the proof you seek is the impossibility, not the possibility (and, IMO, probability) life ends in nothingness.

Where Is The Proof That There Is "Nothing" After Death?

It's in the same place as the proof that there Is "something" After Death. Of course though, the only way to find the proof is as in the eating!

A corpse is something. Humans are not just brain activity and heart beats.

There is "nothing" before life, so it starts with "nothing" and end with "nothing".

Or actually it starts with energy, and end with energy.

Don't be too hasty, friend. I think our "somethings" are going to be drastically different.

I think you'll find the wording here is the major problem...

There is no "PROOF" of life after death... but there is plenty of "evidence" that life exists beyond death

That is the very core of all religions... and the message Jesus came to show, IF one believes in his message

Though there is not even evidence of nothingness after the death of the body

the very concept is impossible... One can not provide "proof" or even "evidence" of nothing

I truly believe Death is an illusion, and we are all "energy/spirits" experiencing this reality through our shell of a body. That spirit/energy doesn't die with the "shell"

That's my 2 cents

I can't sense that!
Do you mean, energy is neither created nor destroyed....but even that can't make what you say right in the second sentence.

I'm speaking of something and nothing in general terms. There is all the evidence in the world (literally) for "something" but absolutely no proof that "nothing" (non)exists.

And as far as we can tell, that "nothing" always leads to this "something" at birth.
