I'm not particularly religious, I'm firmly agnostic in the sense that I know something is there, (yes i dared to use the word Know) but I'm not
I do believe that from a psychological sense the human mind can't comprehend the idea of simply not existing in any way shape or form, because
that's my reason. It's just impossible for me to collect all this knowledge, information, emotions and memories for them to just dissipate upon
expiry. A human needs to feel that there is a reward after work or hardship, and after working all our lives, its understandable a lot of people would
feel compelled to be rewarded with a heaven.
From a mechanical/physical point of view though, there is a lot of evidence to support some sort of existence after death, as mentioned in an earlier
post, all the electric fields, recordings and whatnot, I won't repost it. Not to mention the thousands of 'near death' experiences across the world
which all have a common theme running through.
As well as the point of energy only being able to be transferred, what happens to all of our spiritual energy? a simple coincidential bond of
neurones, muscle and bone simply isnt' enough to produce wonders like metropolises, art, music, something has to 'activate' it. just like a machine
is useless without a power source. Spirit is our power source... sounds a bit crack pot-like, but in a nutshell thats the way i see things.
I came across this thread the other day, I think it would sit really well in this discussion.. read over it, it may even change your opinion. But
i'll state it IS fiction (but hopefully you would've figured that for yourself!)
