Maybe it's something very simple recycle or reborn, we have energy inside us and we have been told energy just changes form, Maybe we get recycled into a different Realm or dimension we've heard stories from people with near-death experiences people who died in a car crash or operating table and came back and described the light at the end of the tunnel the light was warm and was filled with love we will all find out . years ago I used to say if Houdini didn't come back no one will but that was many years ago but if it's truly final and that's it what a waist. Happy Holidays

On a side note, it's interesting how there's not more variation between years in something that's seen as being random.




Again, just statistics. Out of the population, someone has to die from these things just like in a game of poker, someone will get a full house or a straight the longer you play the game.


Ok, this is kinda weird...

Are there statistics charts on alot of the other ways we humans die that also correlate closely between the years such as this car accident statistic analysis did ?

If other analysis's too all line up in a similar fashion... well now you've got my attention because its a pattern that can no longer be ignored by my mind. Ewweee

I suppose its an unavoidable pattern (cuz we all die from this earthly realm & its kinda morbid to think about) but still.

This makes me think of that movie Final Destination where people find a way to cheat death.

If you need a link on the internet to understand that, I cannot help you. It is ancient knowledge.

So no information or ample evidence whatsoever then to back up your claims?

I would love to say I'm surprised but in this verse, you would not be the first to fail to produce conclusive proof as to life after death.


I don't know what happens either, just like yourself if you are honest.

Not suggesting the ancients did not know a thing or two and even more than our current civilization with respects to some topics but as to whats beyond the veil of this existence, i imagine they also remained in the dark in that area.

Nor are you the first to demonstrate small mindedness and provincial awareness.

Why do you consider me to be displaying "small mindedness" simply because i require proof that you nor anyone else can produce to date?

As "provincial awareness" i dont even see how that's relevant nor understand the context.

I mean only that your demand for "proof" suggests that you have not read much. Perhaps you're very young?

Life after death is a huge part of numerous religions, reincarnation has been studied by many including the University of Virginia, several instances of it have been covered by even 60 Minutes and others.

That reincarnation has been shown to be very real in several, perhaps many, cases demonstrates that our fear of death is misplaced somehow.

I don't fear death

However, I would like to see my kids and grand-kids lives unfold.

I would like to find out if we go back to the moon.

I would like to see if we get to establish a colony on the moon and then mars.

I'd like to be around for the next few decades.

I don't want to linger and slowly die in a hospital connected to machines.

42 years young, and as well read as the next Man on the subject in question.

Perhaps you not as well read as you imagine yourself if "60 Minutes" is the best source of information you care to provide? LoL

"Life after death is a huge part of numerous religions, reincarnation has been studied by many including the University of Virginia, several instances of it have been covered by even 60 Minutes and others."

Reincarnation does not necessary donate life after death in the classical sense though, and could be attributed to something more akin to recycling, rather than ascension into heaven or to another plane of existence.

"That reincarnation has been shown to be very real in several, perhaps many, cases demonstrates that our fear of death is misplaced somehow."

Again reincarnation is a very interesting topic but it has not been shown to be unequivocally proven to be taking place.

Our fear is simply of the unknown or unknowable, as to misplaced well where would we be without a fear of death, or to be more precise, what would we be?

Keep in mind that belief in anything, without proof, amounts to a leap of faith, and that can be very dangerous and lead to all manner of misunderstanding down to lack of empirical information.

The question regarding incarnation is just how often it takes place. Are we all re-incarnated? I do not know.

But there is no doubt that some are re-incarnated.

I do not pretend to understand how it happens, or why it happens, or how widely it happens, but it does happen. Mine is not a leap of faith at all on this subject, and I have listed the parameters of my understanding of it.

"I do not pretend to understand how it happens"

That's ok buddy, none of us do.

And chances are, if indeed there is an existence after we shuffle off our mortal coil, there is some kind of rhyme or reason as to why.

Look at it this way, empirical knowledge of another existence, hence lack of fear regarding our own existence in this verse may somewhat retard our ability to experience the life we lead now.

We find life to be sweet because we believe it to be finite, how would we find it if discovered to be simple repetitive rinse and repeat?

Belief in something you cannot prove or understand is indeed a leap of faith, else what is it without facts or evidence to support your supposition?

Statistically speaking at least 97% of people will die at some stage in their life...

In all seriousness there is something life altering about being close to death.

It tends to be people who have not had to face death who have no fear of it (not always I know).

When in Afghanistan and Iraq lots of the lads saw friends their own age being killed or maimed. Seeing mates they were chatting with that morning or who have been out drinking with in the past suddenly having their lives violently snatched away naturally had an effect on them. They were forced to face their own mortality in ways that most guys that age in Western society don't have to. Realising that their dead friend was full of life with a future ahead of them one minute and then were wiped into nothing in the blink of an eye is a traumatic thing for a 19 year old to deal with. If it can happen to them it can happen to me.

The reaction to this was often either a dread of doing anything even remotely risky or a feeling of indestructiblity from surviving the incident. Both of these reactions were dangerous as it either stopped you doing your job or you took excessive risks.

A fear of death is healthy as it stops you doing stupid things, but it cannot be allowed to rule you.

The saying "There are no atheists in foxholes" springs to mind.


Our fear of death is most lightly a survival trait directly linked to our fight or flight response especially so in time of a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat.
