Actually many Christians believe we do experience body and mind death, and exist in a state of nothingness until God decides to have his great Resurrection

hey credit where credit is due
a silent blackness is the closest we can get to describe nothing as we have to use our sense
silence is a lack of sound total darkness is a lack of light
but yeah its truley an impossible concept to get your head around in the same way as infinity

I would have had my seat at the table, time to get up and let someone else sit.
It's clear that the near impossibility of grasping the reality* that you are just here once, once only and never again is why religion is prevalent throughout history to give us humans a comfort blanket to hang onto.
*reality as I believe. What do I know!

Those you speak of apparently weren't on their way out of this world. Consider the countless thousands who have actually died in a clinical sense and revive to tell of seeing either heaven or hell. Can life-saving drugs account for all of this? Misfirings of the brain?
